PAGE TEN THE YACHTING NEWS By Skipper A few yachts were at anchor off the Catalina Island Yacht Club during the week-end. Anyone would expect more of them cruising this fine wea- ther, and no doubt there were quite a number at the Port of the Isthmus, especially sailing craft. Among those at the Yacht Club were Gee. Sturgis and guests with his cruiser "Valerie;" Roland Reticker and guests cruiser "Mary Kay;" Rear Commodore Chas. W. Camp of the Long Beach Yacht Club, with his cruiser "Wanderer ;" Vice-Commodore Morgan Adams of the Los Angeles Yacht Club, and guests, with Murray Vosburg's cruiser " Colorado;" Staff Commodore J. T. Diekson of the L. A. Yacht Club, wife and guests, with his schooner "Jubilo;" Melvin I,ewis and guests, cruiser "El Perrito;" Harry C. Allen and familv, ,cruiser "Petrel;" Mr. and Mrs. Waldman, launch "Dixie Jiggs. lsadore Zellerbeek's beautiful power yacht "Janidore" was again a visitor m our harbor. Chas. S. Howard and guests were enjoying their stay on board his 165- foot power yacht "Valiant," at anchor off the St. Catherine Hotel, when it was destroyed by fire Saturday. The Los Angeles Yacht Club elected the following officers at their annual dinner at the Jonathan Club last Fr;- day evening: Commodore, Al E. Christie; Vice-Commodore, Morgan Adams; Rear Commodore, W.W. Pedder; Board of Directors, two year term, Eugene Overt~n, Donald W. Douglas, Donald B. Ayers; one-year term, D. H. Laubersheimer. The of- fleers and directors of this old organ- ization are looking forward this com- imz summer to many sailing events as they are the real sailors of the yacht- ing fraternity of the South coast. If you don't take the Ca~:tlin:~ l~- lander, tell us the reason why. "WHEN FISH WERE FISH "AND MEN WERE MEN" Located at 220 Metropole avenue opposite the City Hall, The Hotel Favorite, another landmark, built in 189.5, disappeared last week in the march of progress. For the past five years the building had been used for sleeping quarters for the members of the volunteer fire department. W'hile the building was being wrecked last weekalong came John D. MaeLean, who told the Islander representative the following story : "Frank Whittley bought the lumber for that building at San Pedro and brought it to the Island on his sailing boat "Keywee." That was in the fall of 1895. He also brought with him a carpenter, who promised to erect the hotel for 'all the wine he could drink while on the job.' The man became so drunk the first day that for five days he couldn't hit a nail. Then Mr. Whittley fired him, and l finished the job. " 'The Favorite' was one of the first two-story substantial wooden structures to he erected at Avalon. It was designed as a boarding-house, with eight sleeping rooms up-stairs. The dining-room, kitchen and 'social' room, were located on the ground floor. 'Daddy' Knowles and his fam- ily operated the place for Captain Frank Whittley. Stories of many grim battles between Catalina anglers and the giant fishes of the Pacific have been narrated here in the early days 'when fish were fish and men "~t?re ilion,~ " It has not yet been announced by the Santa Catalina Island Company what structure is to be erected on the property. ---:O:-- A glorious cantata, "The King of Peace," by Emerson, will be given at Community Congregational Church Sunday evening.
