OLLINfi I'ROUND AVALON By Norman Wall Things I see and think abut while strolling through Avalon: Few notice the young bloods that visit the Casino. I am not an author- ity on gentlemen's attire, but cannot help noticing, as I stroll around the ballroom, the immaculate looking white linen and flannel suits. These are also many with the blue coats and ledger ruled flannel trousers, with only a few with dark suits. Everyone trying to look his best and using every precaution to be polite. They take their lady with the utmost care- fulness, and glide off to the strains of a beautiful, dreamy waltz. Many plan six to nine months in advance just for a few nights to dance and show off their clothes. A Few Substantiates "Dutch" Holland, local wrestler, started this form of sport at the age of 19. He is now 21 years old and has had over 200 professional matches in two years. Virgil Stephens, that boy from Texas, never had a pair of shoes till 17 3~ears old. He has been, however, a pro:ninent rodeo rider. Overheard on th~ boulevard: "When you go to the Isthmus, go at dawn. If you do you will see a sunrise that will knock you cock-eyed." The new VI-PED-EX OSCILLA- TIONS will condition your feet--a perfect machine massager. They are at the Arcade Beauty Shoppe a~d Ar- cade Barber Shop. A little bundle of joy and happiness will arrive at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Don Shoupe. Jan Garber and his orchestra were guests at a barbecue dinner in Cotton- wood Canyon, Jan being master of ceremonies. Bessie Daley runs a high fever at the wrestling shows. Paul Gilbert, of the Island Phar- macy, tops off breakfast with a bit of Camembert cheese. 12uss Sleigh never gets nervous un- til he gets to the dance. Then he's all a-flutter. Well! Well! I notice the stout newsboy has a new pair of britches and shoes. Frankie Califano is the most en- thusiastic baseball fan among the steamer crew. Ben Bernie brought the largest list of professional people ever seen in Avalon. My wife and I like to take long midnight walks in house slippers. Eddie Upton is the wildest arm- waver while talking. Jack Eanerick of the Airport goes to the Avalon Theatre to sleep. A few nights ago he attended with friends. He fell asleep. Awakening, found himself alone and the theatre closing for the night. Jack Windle still has that very shy, timid, rrmdest and a peek-a-boo man- neT.

Many Catalina Island Yacht Club members reported at the clubhouse. George W. Kleiser and brother Jack, from the St. Francis Yacht Club of San Francisco, sailed into the harbor on board their fine sloop the Valkyrie. They are to be with us for a week. The yacht Janidore has been in port for several days, having on board a group of friends of the owner, I. Zellerbach of San Francisco. Richard Macintosh of the Bee Mary has been doing some fishing as well as sailing, and during the past week entertained several friends, among them being the ever genial Jan Gather. Jan was anxious to catch some fish, but the fish failed to make their appearance: Neverthe- less, according to Jan's report, "a good time was had by all". Mr. and Mrs. George Machris en- tertained a party over the week-end on board their palatial yacht Caronia. The fast Cruiser Idol Ours II, skippered by the owner "mine host" Wdlis H. Mead, appeared at the club float on schedule, with its usual complement of friends of Mr. and Mrs. Mead. Rear Connnodore Ben S. McGlash-" en arrived with a party of friends on his cruiser E1 I'errito. Mr. and Mrs. Ellis Arkush of San Francisco are here for the summer, acompanied by their daughter Carol and son Jack and are living on board their cruiser Gosling. Mrs. Ar- kush is trying her luck at fishing and spends many hours at sea in her fine fishing craft, the Do-tel. The cruiser Imp has been in port for two weeks, having on board the family of the owner, C. S. Smith, Mayor of Compton. Other yachts that were here for the week-end include the following: Tay Garnett's Athene; Carolyn D. II, with Forrest M. Record on board; Camrada, Chester S.

Answer: Opinions differ regarding the reactions of deep b r e a t h i n g. Breathing should be timed to the heart action andthe mental states. Oxygen is a stimulant. When a person feels crushed and "blue," and wishes to "snap out of it," he usually changes his mental attitude to one of resent- merit, and thefi,becomes angry and re- bellious. Consequently, there is fric- tion in the imagination and the mental states. The growing irritation of the mind seems to aggravate the endocrine glands, which respond by releasing additional secretions to develop more energy. Most human beings pass through a period of mental change be- fore there is a change in the physical behavior. Acidosis sometimes con- tributes to dispondency. F r om a physiolgieal standpoint, oxygen has a stimulating effect until the system carries its "load," then there is a change in its reaction and it becomes a sedative. There are cer- tain nerves and fluids in the body that are very sensitive to nitrogen and carbon dioxide. Modern investigators tell us that breathing is the result of cell needs for oxygen. In the process of oxidation it is believed that des- pite the special forms of breat'hing technique,the blood does not appreci- ably increase the oxygen absorbtion. Breathing, however, does eliminate some of the body wastes. To the amateur psychologist breath- ing is of importance, in that it not only ventilates the cell life and pre- vents suffocation, but it appears to be closely involved with the psychic phe- nomena of hmnan existence. Biologi- cally, respiration and heart action are inseparable. For the unconscious in- dividual, a pulmotor not only resusi- rates the cell activities and eliminates the toxins, but it also sets the imagi- nation working in the field of con- sciousness. The mental content (ideas) does not seem to change very rapidly while the individual is under the influence of a moderate excess of carbon dioxide, but there is often a noticeable change with an over balanced oxygen content. This conclusion may be noted in athletic activities where the athlete suspends breathing for his last spurt or drive to the winning post. The mental hazards --such as tense moments in rivalry--~ increase the strain not only on the nerves, respiration and heart action, but the "thrilling moments" leave fa- tigue residues that are sometimes eliminated by directing the attention to breathing, so that the oxygen may aid in relaxing the muscles and nerves. A blind man, hungry for food, is very sensitive to food odors when they reach his olfactory mechanism. Often, the odor of food stimulates a more optimistic outlook. After a meal, man is not apt to have a feeling of des- pondeney--unless he is a victim of in- digestion l There seems to be a type of emo- (Continued om Pa~e 2. Cot. l)
