Mey- ers only dished up 7 hits, with the Merchants collecting their 1 run in the seventh inning on two hits. And again, the bat of Reese spoke loudly and firmly to the tune of three more bingles, which helped sing Old Mr~n Corpe's fishing crew. Miller, pitching for the opposition, found the first part of the game a little shaky, allowing 2 runs in the first inning and two more in the 4th, after which he seltled down and pitched shut-out ball, al- lowing only 2 hits in the last four stanzas. Harold Stockman played for his old team and nearly drove Lefty Meyers back to second base with a line drive that turned out to be a dou- ble play, as the man on first base fig- ured it was a sure base lilt. Well, we COMPARES EA;TH--~AKE$ AND SOAP BUBBLES By Science Service There is a very close analogy be- tween the passage of earthquake waves through the earth's crust and the pas- sage of light waves through a soap bubble. The analogy is only skin deep, but it is for that reason all the more significant. When the fihn in a soap bubble be- comes so thin that it matches a wave- length of visible light the light no longer passes easily through it, but suffers from so-called interference ef- fects which manifest themselves in the brilliant colors seen in thin soap films. A leading geophysicist, Dr. Beno Gutenberg, and an expert on light waves, Dr. P. S. Epstein, both of the all did.

(That's baseball slang, so if you don't know what I mean--skip it.) The man from Milwaukee nmned Smith, who pitched ball back in the. Revolu- tionary days, used his cunning curves and slow stuff to set the home boys down in rare fashion for the first six innings; but tile going was tougher from there on in for the Angel Jun- iors hopped on him for 5 runs and 7 hits in the last three innings. It was a good thing the end was so near for Smith, or he would have seen the way of all defeats. The whole Islande," team saw service, for Manager Brooks was determined to win the contest at all costs. Well, maybe we can urge Corpe and his fishing fleet to make a return trip, so that the count can be evened up to the satisfaction of Gas- saway, who would relish another ore- test against the old home town. , lit A big fellow by the name of Corpe, who has been stationed at Ponco City since the season opened, will be here in place of Middendorf. He is only 6 feet 4 inches up, and weights about 200 pounds, and only 17. Nice play- mate for some four or five guys to play with. We had a visitor over the week-end by the name of Archie Campbell, who belongs to Hollywood, as a pitcher. He is just getting reaedy for the seccmd half of the season by taking in a lit- tle of the old California atmosphere. Bonetti's ankle should be just about healed now, so as to let the Italian wave-lengthof an ordinary earth- quake. The result of this conversa- tion was of scientific importance be.- cause they worked out a method of telling the direction of the earthquake ray through the earth from its altered direction as indicated by recording in- strmnents on the surface of the crust. The calculation in the ease of earth motions is more complicated than in the case of light because the elastic motions of the earth have both long- itudinal and transverse vibrations, while light waves are exclusively transverse. This means that a single earthquake impulse striking the crust from the denser interior of the earth is broken up into four rays while there would result only two in the case of light. The various earthquake beams soon undergo further reflections and split- tings and result in a maze of interfer- ing vibrations which make an earth- quake so hard to analyze in detail. Earlier theories failed to predict the true behavior of earthquake waves in their passage through the crust and the best results were obtained by dis- regarding the junction between the crust and the core. This puzzling re- sult is shown to be quite in accord- ance with the theory by the calcula- tions of Drs. Gutenberg and Epstein. -- :O: ' ' Geogra~phy Old Colored Mammy: "I'se wants a ticket for Magnolia." Ticket Agent (after ten mirmtes of weary thumbing over railroad guides): "Where is ~IagnQlia ?"

SERA jobs will go to those who are best equipped to hold jobs in in- dustry. Thus; it is preferred to give work to a son rather than to a fa- ther past middle-age, in the same family. Frank Y. McLaughlin, SERA direc- tor in Los Angeles county, declared that the only persons not on the charity rolls to be given jobs will be those needed for specific work which cannot be done by charity cases. He listed the following relief agen- cies to give aid to those who cannot be given SERA work: 1. The Federal Transient Bureau, caring for families and individuals in California less than one uninterrupted year. Men and boys register at 220 So.

A tourist here only from one boat to the next, made this query, 'Ai'e your back yards clean, like your front yards ?' The Santa Catalina Island Company has always done so much to beautify and keep the streets and sidewalks clean, is it not up to us to do our part in helping to make this a more beautiful and healthful plai:e in which to live? Without any expense to us as individuals we may clean out the "catch alls" of our own premises. Many, we know are harboring old "cast offs" that they, nor no one else could ever use. Year after year they accunmtate, becoming more unsightly gnd often occupying ground that could otherwise be i~lanted to grass, flowers or trees, adding beauty in place of unsightliness. Why not have a thorough Cle~t Up Week, and show our appreciation of the work Mr. Wrigley has done, and is now doing to enhance the al- readv beautiful "Magic Isle". A place to rest--a t laee tO play; q'he most to see--the least to pay. For health, or change, or play,, or rest Catalina is the best.
