Visiting Throngs Fill Avalon's Streets With L MALCOLM EPLEY- rpHE dedication ceremonies for the new Long Beach water dept. building on Wardlow Rd. should serve as a model for such affairs. Though all the amenities were taken care of, they were short--about half an hour -- and spcechmaking was confined to some cogent information a b o u t Long Reach water. Moreover, some special side-entertainment was provided when City Councilman (former Mayor) Ray Kealer came in late and took a seat on the platform. The chair had evidently been sitting exposed in the sun for a long time. The dignified official sat down in his thin summer suit, then jumped as if hit by a shot of electricity. Kealer was surprised but not flustered. He's been on a hot seat before. CATALINA ISLAND believes in making its visitors both welcome and well fed. For example, when the S.S. Catalina docked recently, 1,635 passengers debarked. Within three hours the restaurants on the island had sold 3,600 hamburgers, 4,100 glasses or bottles of soft CONSIDERING the immensity of the undertaking in all of its details, a production · of the Long Beach Civic Light Opera Assn. is simply astounding. In such a show as the current Kismet -- tonight, next Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights at Muni. Aud. Concert H a l l -- scores of people cooperate in a civic e n d e a v o r of outstanding merit. Most of these people have their regular living- making jobs to do, but give so much to this extra-curricular activity t h a t it comes out as a polished achievement. Kismet's stage sets, lighting and costuming are most impressive, and of course it exhibits a lot of dramatic and vocal talent, The chore- graphy is simply terrific. As one who gets impatient with dilly-dallying, I am pleased to report that the show moves and keeps mov- infi. c One deficiency I noted early at the opening show was in the sound amplification. Maybe the old Concert Hall acoustics are to blame. Rut this seemed to get better as it went along. Some people, when they can't hear, (end to somnolence.

The day on the island really lasts until about 4:30 p.m. Continually adding to tourist t r a f f i c are planes and other boats bringing people fro m the mainland. Independent" SUNDAY, J U L Y 9, 1961 -- SECTION B KDITOKIALS PACK H-2 AIRLINE TRAFFIC to Catalina daily increases tourist trade on the island. Here, framed by the wing and a pontoon of one of the planes which conduct the shuttle service from the mainland is the harbor, clogged with small craft.

Sunday the Kearsarge flagship of the group, will hold open house for Kobe's municipal, civic and business leaders. The Kcarsarge also is hosting J a p a n e s e and American exchange students under the American Field Service international scholarship program. The task group has contributed more than 54,000 to the student exchange project. The Kearsarge and its escorts officially are a hunter- k i l l e r group, a deadly business essential to the nation's defense. Once again the Navy has shown that it can combine the onerous duties of the colci war with the warmth of global good will. The yoi'nj 1 , men of the Kcar- sarge and her sister ships arc a peace corps in uniform. The big white steamer docked at Avalon at 12:30 p.m., and discharged 1,635 passengers. Within three hours, the restaurants of Catalina Island had sold 3,6(10 hamburgers, 4,100 glasses or bottles of soft drinks and 2,250 souvcniers that ranged from sports shirts lo postcards--according lo their best estimates. Until -1:30 p.m., the beaches and s t r e e t s were crowded with tourists. Then, when the hig white boat sailed hack to the mainland, a sort of q u i e t settled on the island. During the clay, planes and o t h e r boats had added another 1,000 tourists to the steamer Catalino's disgorge- mcnl. By the end of t h i s summer, Boh Cnge of the Catalina Chamber of Commerce estimatc-s. about 300.000 persons will have visited the island for a day--or a week--of relaxation. If t h a t figure, holds, it will be a gain of about 50,000 over last year. Catalina is f i g h t i n g back from a slump. Gage says. Once again a band of musicians strolls the streets; more excursions cover the island and the sea about it; there are big-name bands at the Casino again. Keying its pitch to the family trade, Catalina has emphasized tourist attractions this year, and it's paying off. Gage--spokesman for the business people of the island-feels that Catalina's comeback is tied to parents and children. Airlines, such as Catalina Channel Airways m a i n t a i n a constant shuttle service from Long Beach Municipal Airport.
