PAGE FOUR SAYS: (Sunshine Psychology Service) "Out near the fish racks the other (lay stood a man, looking very glum. 'What's the matter?' I asked him. He looked at me scornfully and replied: 'I'm a hair pin manufacturer, and I'm trying to figure out a way, that I can use our machinery for making fish hooks.' " "Which reminded me of tile absent- minded professor who started otlt early !:riday morning an:t toht the waitress that 'No first class hotel serv- ed hot cakes for supper.' A few mo- ments later our friend the professor poured syrtlp over the grape fruit." "Yes, sir, the other day we met a specialist for hard-luck fishing stories! It's a new profession at Catalina, that is, the scheme is not exactly new, but the profession has not been fully ap- preciated. The 'specialist' tells you how hard he has tried to catch a Catalina fish and, out of rea! sportmnm's ~vm- pathy, if you have chartered a boat or own your own boat, you just take the hard-luck specialist along, with you as your guest. He gets a free ride, free lunch, free smokes, etc., all for a few hard-luck fish stories. And. he don't boost anyone else---while he is on your boat !" "\hen a woman goes fishing an! then tells you that as the fish took the bait, she was 'shocked and stunned.' you might ask yourself the question. how long would she have talked had she been fully conscious to discuss the situation ?" "Of course there's a tot men ,,vt~o fish from porch chairs. They can tell you how to land any, size of sword- fish or tuna. Let them put on a bait out in the channel, anl in t~fteen min- utes you can help them take tile hook out of their clothing or their ha!r." EXPERIENCE To tile new angler All fish lqok like THIS ' To the old-timer big Fish look like THIS. "Chemists used to search Mother Earth for the different chemicals. Now they take a chart, figure out a new name, and then find the chemical "pro- perties to fit the name." "A man said: 'l like the argmnents on fishing tackle. They make one feel the necessity of being a bigger and better sportsman.' " "It is not always the nmnber of fish caught that satisfies the angler. The amount of fish c~ugbt (togs satisfy the ~ommercial .fishermen, because selling fis'ti~ iis fiiS motive:" ','!~V~en a inan returns, to Avalon day after day, w~th his lips cracked and his skin sunburned; his eyelids smarting from the. light refleetion .- of 'sun-kissed' seas, his:hair tocsled; his ... ,'% . clothing wet with the salt spray, and he has no fi:~h--you can truthfully say: 'There is a man who LOVES the great out-doors !' " ALL LIFE RADIOACTIVE, SAYS FRENCH SCIENTIST Science Service Paris, July 14.--Animals and plants while living give off rays similar to those emitted by the rays similar to according to reports made to the French Aca temy of Sciences by Albert Nodon. In his most recent experi- ments he used three l~hotographic plates, placing on one of them a par- ticle of a radioactive mineral, on an- other a living insect, and on the third plate a green leaf A coarse cloth was laid between the object and the emul- sion side of the plate. On developing ti~e plates he /ound that not only had the mineral made a strong impvesslon but that the i11scct had made a weaker in:pression anti the leaf a slight im- pression. He calculates that the insect has a radiotactivity per unit o( weight from 8 to 13 tinles that of tile uranium standard of radoactivity, and tile green leaf 2 to 3 times. Dead organisms on the contraryexhibit no appreciable radioactix ity. M. Nodon concludes that radioactivi- ty due to decomposition of atoms is a common accomt)lishn~ent of living pro- cesses and n}ay be regarded as a measure of the degree of vitality. ()A tim contrary, I)aniel Berthelot reported to the i"rench Academy of Sciences that many experiments were made in 1909-11) to discover if plants and animals were radioactive but no such effect was found.
