Mrs. Jarg- slorff passed away at the home of her son-in-law, Frank C. Owen, 337 State street, l,os Aug.eles. The deceased leaves a daug'hter, Constance Hubble, and two sons, Clarence "W. and Clark Jargstorff. Znrehla .lane Craveu Jargst()rff was 1torn in Rayville, Ray County, Miss- ouri. in 1843. She came to California, from Miss()uri, by w'agon trant in 1865, and had be.en a resident of California for 62 years. She was married to Capt. C. H. Jar~storff at 'Pimm's Point, San l'edro, in 1869, and their wedding is said to have bcen the first Americau wedding in San Pedro. Capt. Jars- storff was associat~,d with the Banning C(mHmny for over twenty years. Much of the early part of their married life was sl)eut in Wihnington, an(1 their family was raiscd there. Cal)l.

One son andone daughter preceded her in death. Mrs. Jargstorff visited Catalina Is- land for the first time in 1868, and two years ago heht a fanfily reunion h.ere to celebrate the fifty-seventh an- niversary of her first visit. She wag a xvell-knov,'n and deeply-loved resident of Avalon for thirty-niuc consecutive years, for part of each y,ear, and in her later, declining years, she spcut as much time as possible at Catalina, as she felt very happy here and her heahh was benefited by her stay. She was affectionately known by everyone as "Nan;t," and was a fri.end and counse- h)r to all who asked for advice or help. Her hoslfitality, especially at her cot- tage al Avalon, was known to all-- she was never to~) tired to tak,e in one more. Those who enjoyed this hearty hospitality can testify to this fact. Her life was one of sacrifice for her. family, with never a thought for self. She was a good and thoughtful mother and grandmother to her last days of suffering, and in her suffering was pa.- tient and always considerate of others. She rentained firm in her.

Our answer was : No other newsl)aper prints a research cohnnu about human motives. Also, "criminology" has been a part of our official duly as "J. P." at Avalon or the past ten years. Aud, "psychology" is out hobby! We holm to iutcr,est many of our readers iu the study of Motivation. SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY Then again, we have l)erused nlany of the books ou psychology and eu- docrinology--as a hobby--with the hope of tracin>: to its source that in- visible "spring" of meutal sunshine that produces human happiness. So far we have not found much research data that is of great value in ,lescrib- iug, for the motivationist, the emotion- :',1 activities that dominate the human mind in acts of buma,l kindness, synt- pathy and love. Such data wouhl be worth while. Our psychologists and philosophers treed to be re-motivated. They shouhl tell us how the mind works when looking at the "brisht side" of life! \Vhat hapl)eus 1o happi- uess when the "joy killer" lakes a room in the attic? SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY It is a well known fact in mental training that htmmn beings are at their "best" when they are enthusiastic, "opei~-mindc,t," unselfish and friendly. Philosophers have repeatedly toht us that "uo man can rise physically above his own ideals."

SUNSHmt Psvcuot.oGv Speaking of "hobbies." Arthur Bris- bane once told the writer that Lord Northcliff said, "Man is often a suc- cess when riding a hobby." Following that advice, if human beings made a hobby of their jobs, their business, their search for harmony an.d hal)pi- ness, perhaps they would be sncce~s- ful! Siml)le, isn't it ?
