PAGE TEN SOCIAL AND PERSONAL MARY WILLIAMS CLUB SCOUTS IN CARAVAN John Thor of the Acme Cafe had the pleasure of entertaining his Uncle Jack, from Los Angeles, one clay this week. Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Taylor, Jr., Mrs. Ruby Allen and Joseph McAfee were among local residents who returned home Tuesday on the noon steamer. The nmnerous decorated and illum- inated Christmas trees noted in the homes about Avalon presented a cheerful sight as the shades of night fell over Santa Catalina Island. Among Santa Catalina Island resi- dents north bound on the Tuesday afternoon steamer were Mrs. Sei'ler, Mrs. Salmon, Mrs. Hite and son, Wendell S. Reid and Ralph M. Hey- wood, Y, lrs. Margaret Macdonell, Geraldine Jones and Rose McNelis of the Ar- cade Beauty Shop were among those north-bound Friday afternoon on the S. S. Avalon, en route to spend the Christmas holidays with relatives and friends. Mrs. Karl Krueger and her brother Kurt, with his wife, went over to Los Angeles to spend the Christmas holi- days with Mrs. Krueger's sons, and daughter Katie.

A Standard Oil tanker came in Mon- clay night, to augment the supply of gasoline, coal oil, etc., on hand in lo- cal storage. Andy Devine and Phil Harris, mem- bers of Jack Benny's radio team, came over by plane a few days ago, to have some sport hunting quail and goats. D. O. Fletcher and family, who have been residents of Avalon during the time that the Rohl-Connolly Company has been getting out Catalina Island rock for the San Pedro-Long Beach breakwater, are about to leave with the completion of that great govern- ment project, which makes Loe Ange- les Harbor one of the greatest man- made enclosed harbors in the world. Their local friends will miss them. Among Catalina Island residents who spent the holiday season on the mainland were Parlane Reid, S r., Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Hagberg, Mrs. Ruby A. Allen, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Monday afternoon 14 of the 18 boys belonging to Avalon Troop 1, Boy Scouts of America, sai'led for the mainland to join the Caravan to "Mus- tang", near t'alm Springs, where they are to camp out until today (Thurs- (lay), when they will break camp and return home. While in camp the boys will join in explorations and hikes. As quite a number of the boys will see the desert for the first time, they will have an unique experience. In preparation for their trip each Scout was expected to carry food for 2 breakfasts, 2 suppel:s and 3 lunches, together with plenty of bedding and warm clothes. Those who saw the Scouts start could see that they went well prepared. If any of the boys care to write sketches of their trip, The Catalina Islander will be glad to use them in its columns, so far as practicable. -O Paul Hines and family, of Hines Grocery, spent the Christmas holiday with mainland friends.
