}i!! ,? PAGE FOUR (qare nf ll3e Miull "There is a destiny that makes us broth- ers; none goes his way alone. All we send into the lives of others comes back into our own."--Edwin Markham. (Sunshine Psychology Service) Some mentalities shrink when they ~'hould expand. They arc like cheap bathing suits. Then again, persons driving auto- mobiles with their thoughts parked on any other place but the steering wheel very often get into difficulties. Don't you think so? Did you ever see the peace bird snuggle up contentedly to the person who is always excited, or who is cold amL icy ? It is not always necessary to grin to show the neighbors that you are hap- py. Catching one fish does not make a sportsman; one drink does not make a drunkard, anti one thought or one idea does not make a broad-minded, un- selfish and useful citizen. The public mimt is so saturated with psychological discourses on crime, that many readers of dally newspapers have concluded that psychology is the study of criminology. There is nothing mysterious in the science of psychology. The men and women who use the information to prey upon weak and untrained minds should be Imnished. A gun in the hands of a madman is a dangerous weapon; so it is with psychological in- formation in the mind of a scheming, plotting, unprincipled human being. -What chemist drinks all the poisons he is able to concoct from "harmless" in- gredients ? Lack of impelling motives is the only thing that is the matter with a great many nervous people. Given an im- pelling motive or an intent to do cer- tain things, they forget all about their physicial ailments anti their so-called nervous disorders. Dr. William S. Sadler recently said: "'Remember that your mind can cure what your mind has caused." * # * @ * Persons with active imaginations suffer most frmn nervous troubles. Yes, most of the trouble is in their imagination. Several years ago, at Avalon, we had a man who was in bed, very sick. The fire whistle shrieked through the still- ness of the early morning hours. The man forgot all about his "dying spell," and we saw him a few moments "after the whistle had sounded. He was helping to move a piano. He had a good motive, helping others[ By conversation wc are oft misled To say: "Man's crooked, 'til he's dead." His acts in life don't always count for good ; His motives are the things least un- derstood. $ * $ $ $ "What is the secret of mental pow- er?" a man asked the other day. * * $ $ $ $ Education--Through the proper ex- ercise of the H's --Head, Hand, Heart ---are we educated. And to be educated is to live, for education means devel- opment, unfoldment. There is only one thing worth praying for, and that is to be in the line of evolution--growth. There is no happiness elsewhere, save in the consciousness that we are tun- nelingtoward the light, slowly but surely. To know this is to live. We are all Sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be. Our windows arc open toward the East[ --Elbert Hubbard. Expecting the dove of peace to perch on the shoulder of a person whose mind is full of bitterness, hate and mental fire is very nmch like looking for a humming bird's nest in "a burn- ing oil well. Peace birds have sense enough to know that they have ten- dcr feet, and they don't hover long in a spot where the mental vibrations are operating at white heat, and where human blood is coursing through veins at highly increased temperatures, and where the system is poisoned by hate, bitterness and gall!

Among the guests of honor were the Avalon Boy Scouts, Troop l; Mr. J. H. Patrick, president of the Santa Catalina Island Company; Mr. John N. Stewart, vice president, and Mr. A. H. Splitstoesser. The meeting was presided over by Scoutmaster T. H. Trask of Pasadena. The visitors to the camp reported that they had been royally entertained. More than 200 boys participated in the festivities: During the evening Scoutmaster Trask called upon the visitoi~ for short, informal talks. Prexy Patrick very skillfully bridged his remarks over to his good friend Vice-President Stewart. In part, Mr. Stewart said: "It has been a wonderful experience for we older fellows to sit around the fire and watch the doings of a camp- fire meeting, and to share with you boys the joys of out-door life. In a camp so ably conducted as this one, you young men here have one prize possession, the full appreciation of which probably will not be understood by yon until later years. "The possession of which I speak is youth, You have your lives before you. You can make the future ahuost what you will, and one of the purposes of this camp, and, in fact of the whole Boy Scout umvement, is to instill into boys' minds the principles of integ- rity, obedience and consideration of THE CATALINA After Every IPs the eonleetion you --and it's a 9estlon and a lot tile and WrloleY's benell! as Elmo GUGUMBER Prevents Sunburn and AVALON DRUfi others, anti the spirit of hellffulness to ~~7 our fellow men. 405 "The associations found here, and the experiences you enjoy in this[ PENDEG A?II wonderful out-door life, will live in I L~LE yourmen,ories and shoukl have alarge I Attorney at part your future to form an hopeful I' sto:' Eo "*"" and helpful outlook on life.
