PAGE TWO THE CATALINA BEING A FRIEND u 'poolq~unoIx Ao~I ~(~ Assistant Sul)erintendent Highway Patrol There are leaden men with souls of flint, And hearts as hard as stone, Who live for themselves throughout this life, Live for themselves alone. Without a thought of another's plight, Their only thought is of self, "|'o crush the weak and grind them down, In the maddened fight for wealth. Who never see a chance to serve, Never a chance to aid, Never a helping hand to lend, To some poor devil who strayed. Ah, it's easy to feast with those who feast ; But to fast with those who fast: !l'o share the hunger of him who wants ; To cheer him to the last. "1"o shoulder his burdens; his sorrows to bear ; To help him when he's down: With a smile each mile On the highway of life, with never a trace of a frown. To see the light ; to forget the , gloom ; '1~o stand by him to the end; And shoulder to shoulder to see him through, That's being a real friend. rilE SUBMARINE GARDENb THE MARINE, GARDENS, as de- scribed by the eloquent editor of the Parisian journal, "'Le Figaro," M Huret: "Floating over green and blue water in the glass-bottom boats, one lees the goings and comings of aquatic life.

Here are real trees with long branches waving as on land by a tempest; great fish of all shapes appear as in an artificial aquarium: the sea stars (sta.r fish) shine in the shadow~ of the rocks: then more luxuriant foliage, branehe~ bearing clusters of fruit resemblinv the olive.
