Community prosperity is usually in- dicated in public and private improve- ments, adequately financed, well man- aged and rightly appreciated. Allim- provements are the result of think- rag. Friendship means much to the man who appreciates friendship. Only the man out of work, hungry and home- less, can fully appreciate well-cooked meals and the warmth and value of true friends. Again, such a man must think--to appreciate. So, in passing along our good wishes for health, peace, prosperity and happiness, may we also include that "insignificant little item" of thinking in terms of appreciation. :0: Heard in an Avalon restaurant : "What language do they speak on Catalina ?" -------- : O : -- Editor Windle tells about some in- teresting desert experiences in his "Sunshine Psychology" column this week.
