Josephs, reside.nt manager of the Ocean Accident and Guarantee Corp. of Los Angeles, will be the speaker this week. He has spoken here before and we are anticipating his return engagement. Whenever I hear the word "accident", I always think of the dumb question that is so often used, when two or three cars smash into each other and somebody gets mangled, there is always some guy that rushes up and asks, "have an accident?" The. poor fellow who was pinned underneath the car meekly replied, "No thanks, I just had one".

Sunshine Psychology JUVENILE MOTIVATION BY THE EDITOR "I am interested in juvenile delin- quency and its motives . . . why are some tee.n-agers so strongly motivalted toward crime?" . . . Answer : Many strongly motivated persons whose ambitions tend toward anti-social behavior and crime are in- fluenced by disorders in the brain ancI by toxic sediments in the blood. Misreading human motivation makes interesting crime fiction. Then, too, motivation adds strength when humans attempt to express their differences of opinion. Coordination of.motivation to- ward a definite purpose, not only ex- cites the imagination and the emotions but it keeps the mind focused in one central channel of thought and action. "Crime motives" frequently chatage their value when placed in a different set of circumstances. It is permissible to kill an enemy in war; but it is "rrmrder" if the act is done witllout consent of the government. There is so much contradiction in human motivation that the motives of "teen-agers" of the "scatter-brained" variety are often very difficult to in- terpret, classify or standardise. Motives and intentions can be changed with lightning rapidity . . . A child nlust learn to walk, eat, talk and think--it must learn to use the forces that in- fluence its mind. emotions anti be- havior. I,f it lacks instruction in moral and sldritual knowledge, its conduct will be responses to physical desires and appetites. Indigestion often results in despon- dent tbon~,]lt% The motive to rid on.s- self of pain, reprcssmns aml other items of dislike, inconvemence, discord, im- halqdness. ~omeetinms develop a be- havior tlla~ ~s anti-~c~cial and of a crim- inal intern .

If a per-- SOll attenqpts to run east anti west. when the motive is to travel north such a person becomes befuddled and con- confused. He wastes a lot of energy and "'eels nowhere".
