Due to the Christ- mas rush and some bad weather which delayed mail last week it has not been possible to get pictures to the mainland and engravings back to Avalon in time for this paper. The publishers of the Islander believe that the necessity to apolo- gize for failure to publish the usual Christmas activities pictures this week makes this a good time to an- nounce some of the Islander's plans for the future which deal princi. pally with the use of local pictures. Our good land-lord, the SCI Com- pany, is just putting the finishing touches on a new dark-room and photographic department for the Islander. The Haneys, new publish- ers of the Islander, brought with them to Avalon the equipment for a complete news-photo set-up which, they expect to have in limited oper. ation in another week or two. By the time the summer season opens on Catalina the Islander expects to add a complete new picture maga- zine supplemer~t to the services now offered to this community by its Home Town Newspaper. i Wcmt Lots in Avalon Contact George L.
