PAGE TWO THE CATALINA ISLANDEr LEADED GASOLINE RENAMED TO INSURE SAFETY "Motor fuel" instead of "gasoline" is the label which gasoline treated with tetraethyl lead, the anti-knock com- pound, will wear when placed on the market. The committee of the U. S. Public Health Service, which a.fter investi- gation, decided to allow the sale of leaded gasoline provided for this safe- guard of the public. ]f leaded gasoline were sold as "gas- oline" many housewives, mechanics and others using jt as a cleaning fluid might 'become poisoned through ab- sorbing in their bodies the lead it con- tains. The new label, "motor fuel," will show that leaded gasoline is to be used for power generation only. Scientific members of the committee, representatives of state health depart- ments, manufacturers and distributers who decided on the change, also agreed to make the places where the poisonous, concentrated tetraethyl lead fluid is added to the gasoline as few as possible, so as to lessen the dan- get to workers. SOCIAL AND pERSONAL. On Tuesday of last week the Long Beach channel entrance to the harbor was used, for the first time since just after the close of the war. With the channel being deepened and work on the jetties under way, the time is not far distant when this part of the great Los Angeles Harbor will receive its share of the increasingly large ton- nage received in and discharged there- ~rom.

(Notarial Seal) First publication Feb. 10, 1926---4t TAXING BOATS It cosls $240.00 per annum in feder- al taxes alone to operate a sixty-foot pleasure boat. The enormity of this tax was never realized in the sporting world outside of the boating fratern- ity. No other sport was taxed pro- portionately to maintain '~he worhl war. consequenly it is no little won- der that a powerful lobby was assem- bled during the National Motor Boat show in New York, Jan. 22nd to 30th to go to W'ashington to petition that this tax be eliminated. A revenue bill eliminating this tax has been approved by the house of.representatives. On January 4th this bill appeared in the United States senate, to be referred to the Ways and Means committee of that body. The boating men's lobby from the New York National Boat Show will appear before this corn,nit- tee. Resolutions urging the senate to concur in the house bill removing this tax were adopted at the annual mid-winter sessions of the Mississippi Valley Power Boat association. This meeting was held in Chicago, Sunday, Jan. 3rd. From it will go delegates ro the National Motor Boat show to join the "On to Washington" lobby which will use every endeavor to re- move this handicap on the sport of. power boating and yachting.--Mercury. THE CATALINA ISLANDER BOATING BEST MEDICINE Dr. J. Park I)ougall, eminent in the Southern California field of medicine and surgery, offers what he believes is a greater cure for that common di- sease known as "nerves" than ever existed in th~ findings of any materia medica. It isair--the air of the sea, particularly the brand of sea-air that wafts its course along the Southern California shoreline. Years ago Dr. Dougall began his experiments with the "air cure," going to sea in sailing ships whenever the opportunity offered, and encouraging his friends .to do likewise. Now in the ranks of the California Yacht Club, of which Dr. Dougall is a prominent member, there are a score or more which have profited immensely in health and happinessbecause they took the Doctor's advice, tossed nerve nostrums into the discard and made the sea their second home.--California Graphic. MAY GIVE CLUE (Science Service Correspon~tence) How many savage impulses still re- n~ain in the human breast is a ques- tion on which psychologists are now trying to cast some real light. Dr. C. G. Jung of Zurich, Switzerlahd, one of Europe's leading psychologists, and Dr. H. G. Baynes of London, have arrived in British East Africa where they will spend six months with a primitive black race called the Bagishu, at Mount Elgon in Uganda. These people are a nfixture of the Bantu and Nelotic races, and are known to have a language, mythology and customs more archaic than those of most other races. By comparing their customs, beliefs and mental hab- its with those of the white civilized races. Dr. Jung and Dr. Baynes hope to find out something of the existence of the primitive said to be in all men, civilized or not. The problem has great difficulties as the entire work will have to be done through an in- terpreter. / Incorporated Have five-room modern bungalow, very nicely arranged, two large sunny bedrooms, every thing complete.
