PAGE TWO: THE CATALINA AVALON BOY SCOUTS HAVE BIRTHDAY PARTY Commemorating the first birthday of Avalon Troop 1, Boy Scouts of Amer- ican, a dinner prepared by the mothers of the scouts was tendered the boys Thursday night at the Congregational Church. A huge double-decked birth- day cake, frosted in red, white and blue, with the star-spangled banner wrought on top, and the troop name and number inscribed around the edges, was the feature of the dinner. A single candle burning bravely de- noted the first year of the Avalon Scouts. Mr. Henry Fate was the creator of the wonderful cake. Mr. Tallman H. Trask, scout execu- tive.of the Pasadena district council, was the guest of honor with Mr. D. M. Renton and Scoutmaster Benjamine I-I. Robison. Following a sumptuous dinner and the ceremony of cutting the birthday cake, which was brought to the head of the scout table by Mrs. Renton, the Boy Scout Creed song was sung by all present, followed by the scout yell. Scoutmaster Robison called on various scouts for extemporaneous talks on experiences of Avalon Troop 1 during its first year of existence. It was one year ago when the local troop was organized, with ten tender- foot scouts having passed their tests. With the celebration of their first birthday Avalon Troop 1 boasts of fourteen registered scouts and a crew of nine sea scouts, a total of twenty- three scouts--The older scouts now forming the crew of sea scouts. Ten have passed the tests of first class' scouts and nearly all of these have achieved the distinction of being awarded merit badges. Scouts who have won the greatest number of merit badges since joining Avalon Troop 1 are Theodore Sierks, ten merit badges ; John Shields seven and Malcolm Ren- ton five. Scout Executive Trask gave an in- teresting talk on the origin and his- ~ory of scouting, and of the high ideals of the organization, after which be presented the troop with its new charter from National headquarters for the year of 1925. A new honor was the granting of an additional charter for a Ship of Sea Scouts for Avalon. Mr. Benjamin H. Robison, former assistant scoutmaster was presented with a charter designating him"as Scoutmaster of Avalon Troop I for the coming year, and also as Skipper for the Ship Sea Scouts. Mr. David M. Renton, Mr. Ralph Heywood, Mr. E. P. McY, Iillan and W. H. Mulcahy were uamed to form the troop commit- tee for 1925 by the new charter, which is signed by President Calvin Coolidge, William H. Taft, Charles H. Livings- ton, Dan Carter Beard aml James E. West. The committee of mothers in charge of the scout birthday dinner was Mes- dames D. 3I. Renton, Sam Guiding, T. D. Eddie, Nettle Fate, N. 31. Shields and A. L. McKelvey.

SAYS: (Sunshine Psychology Service) If you are determined to express mean thoughts, go out alone and talk to yourself. \Vhy punish a man's body when his nfind was the cause of the wrongful acts. The mind should" be corrected, not the man's big toe! We pass laws to stop persons from "stepping on the gas" and driving fur- iously down a well thronged street, but the place to check the evil is in the impulse, imagination and motive that "steps on the gas." Get familiar with your own motives and you will make fewer mistakes in life. Study the aviator. When he makes a mental mistake and acts it, he not only wrecks his craft, but his relatives are called upon to attend his ftmeral-- sometimes ! When the conscious mind is uncou- scious, there is up realization of joy, happiness or trouble. The mind that is capable of (hosing its own state of consciousness throw~ off trouble, and visualizes thoughts that stim,flate sun- shine and wholesomeness. Just like any piece of machinery, the" human mentality needs care and at- tention. A sewing machine, not ad- justed, drops its stitches. The mind does the same act when it lets the body operate from animal impulse. Over impulsive persons usually make nfistakes. When a person makes many mistakes in life, society considers that person is a "menace to society," and the person is sent to one of our state institutions. Spend ten minutes each day caring for your mind, with the motive to get "better and better every day," and then note the wonderful progress in your mental activfties. Thoughts de- ~ielop faster if they are trained. DO YOU PRIZE THAT MAGAZINE OR BOOK? They will last much longer if they are bound in a neat cover; and that Radio Journal, or record, can be pre- served for future reference. How about that old prdyer book or Bible? Does it need a new cover? Let the Islander do it for you. \Vear your Light Tackle Club But- ton. It shows that you are an angler and a sportsman. Catalina will give you the rest of your life.

L. Rowell, well- known rancher of Kaw City, Oklaho- ma, declares that his amazing rejuven- ation was brought about in a few days by and exceedingly simple method. "I am as young and vigorous as I was at 30," he says, "and am getting in better condition than I ever thought possible. Before I tried this method, I wished I was dead, I was in so.hope- less a condition. I was skeptical and had lost faith in everything. Now in a few clays, my glands are awakened and I am enjoying a complete rejuven- ation and restoration of my youthful vigor." Six months have passed since Mr. Rowell made his test, and he is still convinced that the beneficial ef- fects are lasting. He says, "I have found a real fountain of youth." Speedy Results Reported Mr. Rowell used the now much talked of korex method--the discovery of a Missouri pharmaceutical chemist. As tohl in a recent issue of the Kan- sas City Journal, many others are an- nouncing delightful effects received in from 24 hours to a few days aqter its use. Speedy satisfaction has been re- ported in cases of weakness after the flu, stiff joints, aching muscles, exhaus- ted nerve force, permature old age and low ~itality. Enthusiastic users tell of years standing, where all other treat- ments had failed. This method invol- ves no tremendous expense or painful operation• Tablets are used and are taken privately• It contains no drastic drugs and those who have tested it say the effect is a healthful, natural, lasting invigoration. So many successes have been repor- ted that the American distributors have decided to make the compound avail- able to any person needing it. Those now wishing to try this anaazing in- vigorator will find it on sale by the Avalon Drug Company and the Island Pharmacy Company. Ask for Korex Compound, full strength.--Advt.
