PAGE TWO THE CATALINA SUMMER SESSION FOR HIGHER PSYCHOLOGY As a nation we are "psyched" with- in an inch of our sanity. Not only the foreign psychologists, among whom towers the inescapable Freud, but our own are standing in rows shrieking at us to ferret out our complexes until a ]nan's poor subconscious mind is rapidly becoming the hare in one of the wildest chases of hare-and-hounds the age has seen Yet the subject has its fascination, and that a great one. Therefore, says the State University, if you are going to be psyched, do it well and thorough- Iy; and get the best psychologist you can to turn the trick. Doubtless that would not be given out in academic circles as the main reason for bring- ing Walter B. Pillsbury, of Michigan University, to the smnmer session at the Southern Branch in Los Angeles, but the ,University authorities admit that they got the best man they could find to come out for the courses which are to be given in psychology this sutmner. Walter B. Pillsbury has been Pro- lessor of Psychology and Director of the Physchological Laboratory at the University of Michigan since 1910. Prior to that, he was the Director of the Psychological Laboratory at Cor- nell, at which university he took his Doctor's degree in philosophy. In ad- dition to the interesting and valuable experimentation which Dr. Pillsbury has carried on in both these institu- tions, he has found time to write ex- tensively on different phases of his subject. Psychology as it explains the two contradictory ideas of nationalism and internationalism, is the basis of one book that has created much inter- est among psychologists, and another work has been translated into French. Last year Dr. Pillsbury acted as Exchange Professor in the French P *T 4/If/I I/ Clothes Do Not Make the Man but they do help him to make good impressions.

TO ROW TO CATALINA Rowing from Long Beach to Santa Catalina Island in small canvas life- boats invented by A. N. Nelson, John Scofield and Earl Williams will en- deavor to prove the sea-worthiness of the new creations within a few (lays says the San Pedro News. For days the two youths have ta.kcn the light boats several miles out to sea and back again, with results much bet- ter than Nelsen, an old life guard, ex- pected. The new boat, the inventor claims, solves the problem of light, seaworthy life boats for small yachts. One of the innovations is a self-dinn- ing process. The floor slopes down from the stern and in the bow is a small hole through which any water that ships into the craft goes out. The new invention sits exceptionally tow in the water and does not offer much resistance to the wind. Good speed, it is claimed may be obtained by sculling the boats from the stern, as they are light and with the bottom symmetrically fashioned. Catalina will give you the rest of ,our life.
