IN HALL Merchant Tailor California PROMINENT CHICAGOAN PICKS CATALINA ISLAND FOR HIS WINTER HOME Fred W. Upham of Chicago will hereafter make Southern California, and Catalina Island, his winter home. This announcement comes from the Chicago capitalist himself, who is va- cationing here with Mrs. Upham, as stated in the Islander last week. A prominent figure in republican politics, Sir. Upham is treasurer of the Republican National Committee and is also president of the Consumers Com- pany of Chicago, one of the largest coal, ice and building material concerns in the country. A long-time friend of Sir. William Wrigley, Jr., owner of Catalina, Mr. Upham has selected a building site for his new Island home close to that of his "pal," and Mr Wrigley has shown his appreciation of this decision by naming the location "Upham Point." High above Avalon Bay and overlook- ing the bay and the channel toward the mainland, Mr. Upham says he will be "sitting on the top of the world." "Southern California is the place supreme for pleasure activity and for rest," said Mr. Upham, "and I am go- ing to spend as much time as I can here in the future. The marvelous growth of California's cities and towns and the rapid building up of the coun- try, as seen from your wonderful bou- levards in every direction, is almost beyond belief. I am an enthusiast of the first water in all things having to do with the great Goklen State." QUALITY AND FREIGHT RATES "Do you remember what led you to set the world's jaws wagging with gum?" asked Mory. "Course I do," said William. "It was no desire to take advantage of any weakness of humanity, for pro- portionaIly man's (and woman's, too) jaw nmscles are the strongest in the body. "I had decided to go into a business: I wanted a business that would have a good show as against freight rates. "So I studied freight rates, and I found that a hundred pounds of chew- ing gum could be shipped as cheaply to any place in the world as to any place in the United States, so I went in for gum."--Otheman Stevens in Los Angeles Examiner. ANOTHER HAWAII PROGRAM Many of the best of the beautiful stereopticon pictures of Hawaii which were shown at the recent entertainment may be seen Sunday evening at the Community (Congregational) Church. There will also be a goodly number of new pictures. The pastor's remarks on the pictures will especially deal with the religious activities of Hawaii, tho the scenic features will not be over- looked. There will also be phono- graphic reproduction of two or three songs sung in their native language by real Hawaiians. The service will be- gin at 7 p. m., and everyone is invited. Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Bunnelle have returned to their San Dimas home after a pleasant visit with his parents. The Catalina Islander will welcome correspondence on problems of a psy- chological nature. Don't forget the election next Mon- day, April 14th. A PSYCHOLOGIST'S PRAYER By Mason J. Merrihew In some slight appreciation, and in abetment of the "Psychology Series," which has for a time been proving such interesting reading in the columns of the "Islander," and a careful study of which will give ample food for thought upon lines of mind activity in which too many allow themseh,es to grow rusty. Avalon, O, Soul Universal, would'st tell thy Psychology, "Peaching poor mortals true learning to find; Hold high in sight Thy bright torch Iconology, Baring to vision the motives of MIND. Teach. us the tenets of Psychology; Share with the needy its wisdom divine; Direct us aright in our earnest euchology; Let us take pattern from knowledge of thine. From our horizon, clear mists of mythology; Thrust Thy significance into our ken; Give us fair sight into deeper ontology; Grant us the spirits of children again. Exalt in our hearts a defunct pneumatology; Cast from our eyes the material beam; May we not tamper with blatant pseudology; Pervade our subconsciousness with Thy bright gleam. Dispel from the world the error paralogy; Enthrone in its stead fair Reason as lord; Disperse the clouds of base, arrant ology, Harrowing hellish discord. And all this we ask in the name of Psychology. Grant, we beseech Thee and show us the LIGHT; Help us we pray Thee to live a doxology, Spreading hearts' sunshine by doing the right. California, March 27, 1924. A WISH By James Taylor Adams in the Berkeley Courier. I'd like to be the sort of man my son could think about, Without a throe of mental shame, or any cause for doubt That I had any duty shirked, or quit a task began, Or failed to fight with all my might, to aid my fellow-man. I'd like to know that when I'm gone across the foaming tide, My boy could say, "Dad did this thing," with just a bit of pride. I'd hate to have him hesitate, his face in anguish hid, Or hem and haw and faltering say, "I guess my father did." I'd like to have folks say of me, "He was an honest man, He stood the test, he did his best, he knew no creed or clan." But most of all I'd like to live a life devoid of shame, And that nay child will never blush when people speak my name. yOUNG AMERICA is full of vitality--always on the go --never still a minute.
