BUY AN EXTRA BOND FIFTH WAR LOAN DRIVE The Fifth War I.oan Drive, which opens officially on June 12, really opened for purchasers of some types of bonds as early as June 1, according to W. J. Laurln, manager of the Oa~- alina Island Branch of the Security- First National Bank. All Savings Issues, which means Series E, F, and G bonds and Series C notes, which are sold from June 1 to July 31, will be counted in the Fifth War Loan Drive ;" said the banker today. "This is a point not to be overlooked by clubs, organizations, and solicitors who are anxious to reach their quota a,t the earliest possible date. The additional t!me at the beginning of the drive may mean greater success than might be possible otherwise." ";'~ reach the growing volume of c:,sh savings and the holdings of cur- r-:;~cy in this area is the all-import- ant job for all solicitors in the war bond ~ampaign, Mr. Laurin said Special notice shou!d be given also to the new U.

VOLUME XXXt NO. 24 Sunshine Psychology "THALAMIC RADIATIONS " My Dear Editor of Sunshine Psychology : "Say", queried a reader of this col- umn, "isn't that thalanms stuff that the Sunshine Psychology fellow is putting over lately, some new diseov-. cry or development in the brain? The question somewhat mnazed me; but I proceeded to explain as well as as I could, in words along this line: "Oh, the thalamus is probably one of the oldest parts of the brain, and was developed in animals of the lower orders along with the spinal cord, the nerwms system and the mednla ob- longata. At first it was just a nub, but it grew to eonsklerable proportions. before the upper and lower brain sec- tions were important. "Even today the brain in the human embryo grows along the lrine "of early development, and the thalamus is one of the first parts of the brain to ap- pear. "Early investigators must have real- ized the importance of the thalamus as they named it the inner chamber or the storehouse. "The older part of the thalamus-- the paleothalatnus--is the seat of fear, pain and (probably) memory. The newer part is called the neothalamus and serves as the great relay statist of the nerve centers of sight, feeling etc and is connected with the upper brain by thalamie radi~tion~---eleetro- magnetic waves as used in radio and electromagnetic induction. "The pituitary and the pineal bodies are intimately connected with the thal- ami, and it is interesting to note that the pituitary glands in some manner control sex development and the growth of the typically male and fe- male bodies, while the pineal gland in some of the lower orders and vere- brates is much like an eye, in struc- ture, and is considered by some scien- fists as a vestopal third eye, and, from the earliest study of the brain the thalamic eye (the pineal body) was considered the seat of the soul. "There is nothing new about the thalami, not even the belief that the older division is the seat of fear, pain ;rod race memory, and perhaps the subconscious mind," 1 declaimed with considerable force. "Yeah, that's what you say, but 1 never heard of it before," answere~| my listener with .a slight show of peevishness. Probably his subconscious mind was fighting the--to hint--new idea. We are all inclined that2a-wa.y, when: something new is sprung on us. Now, this brings me to another point!If thalamic radiations ~y elec- tronicaction couple brain .cells and Igreatnerve cenoters, optic, sensory, etc AND THEY DO, does it not follow, my wise one, that, according to the inexorable na,tural laws of eltc- tronics, when communic:rtion across these air gaps is established, electro- magnetic impulses set up a field oi energy otrts4de the body the same as (Contintred on Page 2 Col. 1)
