stating that although there is 'a gen

national guard and regular .army do
not work well together, this) is a mis
take, for the regular army realiies that
the backbone of the defense of the

National Guard and able to take the

this true la the case of Hawaii.' '

ceive tank, steamers. ,
At. Venice the storm drove th
heavy atirf over the low beach and
washed out sidewalks and boothn,
tearing away- great stretches of .
the fine sandy beach. . The horae-

damaged and some damage was
done,; to buildings close to tb '
shore. -,';' t ,
North qf-Venkje the city of
Santa Monica was protected from -

the beach along the foot of the
bluff; was badly washed out and
In aome spots it i feared that the ;
bluff may cave-in,' carrying . with ,
it some of the amallcr houses along
its margin. The big cement pier
there .has weathered the stonn
without severe damage. , Two ,
