MEMORIAL SF ,RVICE AT CEMETERY Under the auspices of Catalina Is- land Post 137, American Legion, Mem- orial Services for our Honored Dead 'will be held at the Avalon Cemetery, ,Decoration Day, Tuesday, May 30. All ex-service men arc urged to be at the City Hall for the formation at 9:30 a. m. In 1868, General John A. Logan, commander-in-chief of the Grand Ar- my of the Republic, issued an order "that every post of the Grand Army should hold suitable exercises and decorate the graves of their dead com- rades with flowers." That was the first Decoration Day Which has since broadened in its scope to include all the honored dead and is now known as Memorial Day. On this day we pause to remember with reverence those men, who, down through, the:years, gave their all that America .might live and grow in light and liberty. In the hast two and one-half years the black-scourge of war has planted fields of white crosses at Aawara and Bougainvillc, at Anzio and Cassino. at Bataan and Corre~dor. But the brave men whose earthly remains lie buried beneath those crosses will never die. Their spirit lives on--the spirit of un- selfish devotion that inspired their last great sacrifice. The true observance of Memorial Day lies not in ceremony, speech or song. Rather it lies in the work--the untiring work--and determination of all of us to speed the production of the weapons of victory, to carry on the task they so bravely supported. It is an occasion for each of us to more earn-' estly search his own heart for the wis- dom and judgment that will enable us to build a better world. So Memorial Day is more an occas- ion for constructive and intelligent ARMY'S NAVY TO BE TRAINED BY U.$.M.S. The United States Army has estab- lished a "new beach-head somewhere in the Pacific"--to-wit, Catalina Island. California. Captain J. W. Sutton, commanding officer of the 70th Har- bor Ch'aft Company, a unit of the Army Service Forces arrived Sunday with the first contingent of 80 enlisted men who will operate small boats in non-com- battant harbor work. While at Cata- lina they will be trained as "able sea- going soldiers" hy officers of the U. S. Maritime Service training station in courses which are part of the regular curriculum of Maritime Service train- ees---America's merchant seamen-to-be. The army service forces in training here will have with them Lt. A. Wilson, administrative officer, and Lt. F. G. I)aley, Training Officer. ~ ON TO VICTORY ATTENTION--PLEASE 'r)hlnteer workers are wanted to assist the Avalon ~rar Bond Commit- tee in the Fifth War Bond Drive which will open the early part of June. A meeting will be hekl to formulate plans Monday, May 29, at the City Hall. Mr. W. Lanrin, chairman ~f the committee will call the meeting to or- der at 7:30 p. m. It is a privilege, rather than a duty, for workers to give of their time to help Uncle Sam's work of the day. Your hell) is needed. Be on hand for the meeting Monday night. thinking than for sorrowing. It is an OlJportunity to realize with greater clarity that, in the words of Lincoln, "It is for us the living rather to bc dedicated to the unfinished work which they who fought . . have thus far so nobly advanced. that we high- ly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain." VOLUME XXXl unshine Psychology "HUMAN ELECTRICIT (Editor's not: Reminiscent of (lays when we wrote this cohnnn as a hob- by, we publish another thought-pro- voking letter from our go*:)d friend Prof. James W. Marsh of Los Angeles. In the past we have discussed prob- lems in human engineering--the hu- man powerhouse--and its apparent re- lationship to the mental, psychic and cosmic activities that influence human behavior We direct the attention of all persons interested in telepathy --laymen and scientists -- to Prof. Marsh's observations and references to human electricity and its importance in Motivation--the intent with which' we do things.) My Dear Editor of Sunshine Psychology. "M~,N" The world of human understanding certainly is advancing, even in these (lays of terrific war. 'Dr. Kahn, in his new work "M NT;: (2 vol. 1943) substantiates and elab0rr ates the theory that physiological a,n(t" mental activities of mankind are es- sentially electrical, just as you on7: ceived and stated m your column some quarter of a century ago. The two volumes by Dr. Kahn are profusely illustrated. Many of the cuts and diagrams are beautifully and~:,arr tistically executed, and a study of just- those is highly enlightening and en- tertaining. . . . [t is shown that the brain iS the~ great central, electrical powerhouse, Primarily it seems to be the producer of direct current electricity, by a pro- cess of electrochemical reactions. The ganglia are the transmlssiort cables to the substations--the neur.~ ones--and the nerves are the~ single-- wire circuits connecting them to the cells. h, the human system there are ~o1~, age regulators, current interrupters, in- ductance and capacitance coupling's, switches, transformers with oil insu- lation (myelin) and altogether it is a most modernly equipped electric sys- tenl. There are both alternating, current (a.e.) and direct current (d.c.) divis- ions in the system. This MUST be so as the electricity produced by electro- chemical reaction is always direct cnrrent by nature, aml electricity pro- duced by induction is invariably alter- natinu. In 1he human body there are lu~ duction coils, transformers and con-- densors and they all work o~ and pro-- duce only a.c. electricity. The human body is some 80% fhlld and moisture, good electrolytes, Im~h:, acid and t!aline, and excellent conduc- tors of electric current. Insulated nerves carry the electrical impulses to the terminal cells, and after, the work is done, the current returns. to the central station by the common ll~round----the body moistures and liquids. This constitues a most efficient single wire system for the operation of every cell in the human body (Continued on Page 2, CoL 1) 4
