PAGE ,FOUR (gore of thP inh (Sunshine Psychology Service) What is back of the man who wins? What is lacking in the man who loses? Does the same law operate for the loser and the winner? What is success? In our studies of motive, desire and purpose we have clipped the following paragraphs from a Washington Cor- respondent of mnnerons Republica.n newspapers. The words motive, desire and purl)use all mean different mental states of tile human mind. Study them carefully and note tile difference : "La Follette has never forgiven Theodore Roosevelt for running in 1912, after La Follette's specta- cular breakdown at Philadelphia. This fact leads many to believe that the Republican party, because it will not give him the nomina- tion, shall not win. But whatever his motive there is no denying the fact that his apparent lmrpose is occasioning serious anxiety among the leaders of both parties. "The insurgents in Congress have approached the I)emocrats with a proposition to form a coali- tion to prevent adjournment on june 7, as is desired by the Re- publicans." And there are critics who tell us that motive, desire and purpose are "all the same thing." Switch the words in the above paragraphs and note the ambiguity of the sentences. We wish someone would figure out a Way to utilize all the surl,lns energy Of some of these effervescent youths io keep it from degenerating into down-right cussedness.--Florida Chief. SAYS: (Sunshine Psychology Service) "The K, wer;'fish you catch, the big- ger the laugh 3You will have when they get to investigating the antics of the commercial fishermen and the so-call- ed 'fish hogs.' " "Most anglers, when they lose, say nothing. ,But they holler loud enough When they win. Always picking on the poor fish !" "I ain't stuck on the guy that goes 'round. with a piece of bait in one hand and a hammer in the other. That's ~ot sl~rtsmanship! He shouht be working in a blacksmith shop, in- stead Of" handlh:~g delicate thiags like fish." "Most Of us know very little about Nature. I was talking to a man the other day about air currents, ocean currents, tides, migratory fish and birds, and a few other things, and he said: 'Why, do you know, I've never thought about Nature only in terms of animals, green grass, trees and rivers, mountains and lakes ? I never thought about ocean currents and air currents as part of the scenery.'"' "That 0ld saying 'one half of the world doesn't know how the other half of the world lives,' is partly ap- l)licable to Catalina. We are trying to tell the other half of the world where we live, and the kind of place we live in. In all the world there's no place like Catalina !" "The man who tries to drive a nail with orle blow of the hammer, does not make a good angler. Angling re- quires patience. So does advertising-- if you are attempting to buiht up an established business." "If tile earth is round, and sound travels around the earth, what is to stop it before it makes three or four laps, if the force is strong enough to drive it ?" "l)id you ever study the vibrations of the human xoice as it seems to make several trips to the ears of some people before it percolates into their understauding? If a man doesn't 'get you' the first time, don't call him a 'dumb-bell.' Probably the sound you made resembled that made by many dumb animals. He will grab your thought when it has made several trips around him, if he has tile faculty of tlnderstanding whatyou are at- tempting to tell him." "Comictions are things that an ang- ler feels after he discovers he has been whipped to a ~razzle by afish that wouldn't be large enough to wiu him any sort of a button in an organ- ized fishing club." A NOTED BAIT CASTER TEACHES AMATEURS Col. C. M. Leighton for the past fifteen years has enjoyed the distinc- tion of being classed as the world's champion exhibition caster and fly and bait casting instructor. While a professional, and therefore barred from competition in all casting events, Col. Leighton is an honorary life member of seventeen different fly and bait casting clubs in America, and of the Forestry Association of Ottawa, Canada. His medals, received from all parts of the country, are too numerous to be worn all at once. A few, from his collection are shown.~in the accom- panying photograph, which shows him in the correct position at the end of a cast. Col. Leighton's work for a number of years was to locate in a city with the largest tackle dealer, give casting ex- hibitions in front of his store, and boost fishing tackle sales. He would then start a casting club, instructing the members, and assist them in hold- ing their first tournament. After the club was well started the Colonel would move on to his next booking. At present Col. Leighton is employed by the Newman-Stern Company of C:leveland, Ohio, where he gives in- structions in the sporting goods de- partment in fly and bait casting. In summer time he also conducts a class in Rockfeller Park on Wednesday af- ternoons, where he furnishes tackle free for his pupils. He guarantees to tea~:h the average ma/a to cast 100 feet inside of one hour. Col. Leighton, since he took up his unique profession, has given instruc- tions to thousands, has helped start numerous clubs and has promoted tournaments in many communities. Ptlueger Bull Dog Brand Tackle is enthusiastically endorsed and recom- mended by Col. Leighton, and used Here is Modern "lsaak Walton"--Famous Casting Instructor is Honorary Life Member of Many Clubs. AVALON CHURCHES Catholic Church services: Sunday Masses, 8 and 10 a. m.
