Harold Stamford paid Avalon a short visit last week. We were glad to note his improvement in health. He probably will be back in Avalon with- in a month or two. Mrs..Percy West and son Charley, of Maiden Lane, and Mrs. Ernest Mackey and son Jack of East Whit- tley Terrace, left on Sunday morn- ing's steamer to spend a few days in Long Beach. Hearing that the bathing beauties were going strong over here these sunny days, Louis Michelson of Lo~ Angeles, maker of the Swim Easy bathing suits, came into town on Fri- day last to look the situation over. Sure enough, they were, and lots of 'era. Mr. Michelson is also an active member of the Tuna Club, and has been coming to Catalina for many years. When he was leaving for the mainland, he said: "Well, Avalon is sure getting bigger and better every year." Word has been received at the Tuna Club that our old friend, James W. Jump is much improved in health after a very long spell of sickness and lameness. In fact, he at the present time is working hard every day in order to have things running smooth- ly for that wonderful Christmas tree for the poor children which is given every year by the Los Angeles Shrin- ers. With Mr. Jump again at the wheel this tremendous undertaking is sure to be the success it always is. The late Motley Flint was one of the organizers in this work of charity and love for these little folk. Most of us are firmly convinced that we could make a success of life if we only had time.--Life. THEY ARRIVED--WERE RECEIVED--AND HOW ! Mr. and Mrs. Ernie A. Turn*r, New- !y-Weds, Given Lively Reception They came--they saw-- but--they couldn't conquer the reception com- mittee that :net them when they came off the steamship "Cabrillo" Thursday evening. We refer to the young couple men- tioned above. Mr. Taylor zs a well known employee of the Transporta- tion Department of the Santa Cata- lina Island Company--a bus driver. Mrs. Taylor (nee Flossie Jeffries) is a handsome Pasadena girl. They were married in Long Beach Decem- ber 6th. They had a cottage at 319 Clemente avenue all fixed up to en- ter when they got ready to come to Avalon. Debarking from the "Cabrillo" they were met by a delegation of Ernie's fellow workers, who, after greetings and introductions, took forcible pos- session of the young man, led him to a truck which he was compelled to climb into. The bride was gallantly assisted into the vehicle, which was then driv- en up and down the streets of Ava- lon with the shrill horn calling atten- tion to the outfit. Then, they tied the young man to the rear end of the truck, and he was led through the streets on foot. He was kept tied up for about an hour, and then released to accompany his bride to their horn.e-to-be. But alas, some of the young man's friends (?) had been there before them, and there was not a window curtain to be found in the house. And that wasn't all! There were various other evidences that the house was to be occupied by newly-weds. However, some way, the couple prepared for a night's rest when-- bur-r-r, an electric bell in some un- known location commenced to ring-- for several minutes--and the noisy thing kept ringingevery half hour all night long. Needless to say the bride and groom got little sleep, and from what the birds tell us, some of the neighbors did little better. The Catalina Islander extends con- gratulations and good wishes to the young people, and trusts that as the years bring happiness and comforts that the episode of Thursday evening will linger in their memories to pro- voke a smile. --~-~- : 0 : "--~--- Miss Rosika Trippe sailed for the mainland on Monday morning's steam" ship.

'/'he subject for the day was "American Homes." Mrs. J. H. Stamford gave such a vivid picture of the old kitchen and its furnishing that one could fairly taste the home-mode bread and Grandma's cookies. How- ever, after hearing mention of all the new conveniences and colorful equip- ment, one did not wish to return to the olden times. Mrs. C. C. Noble led an interesting discussion on constructive and de- structive forces in the home. Two flute solos by Charles Carpen- ter were greatly enjoyed.
