All records for the trip were broken by the largo turnout, bearing out previous predictions that the crowd would be the biggest in history. A number of students took advantage of the stop-over privileges to remain on the Maigic Isle over night, but most of the tourists merely spent the day exploring the Island and its many features. Swimming, boating, golt', fishing, mountain-climbing, and motoring, not to mention visits to the many curio stores occupied the attention and the time of the excursionists. The party left early Saturday morning, and spent the entire day visiting the many places of interest on William Wrig-ley’s popular resort. The trip in the glass-bottomed boat, which permits a close examination of the beautiful under-water plants in the clear water surrounding the Island, proved especially popular. Next Saturday, the annuaJ Mt. Lowe excursion, including a trip through the world-famous observatory, is scheduled. While this expedition does not promise as much in the way of total recreation, as does the Catalina jaunt, the Mt. l^owe trip invariably proves as popular as the journey to Catalina.
