PAGE TWO THE CATALINA SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY (Continued from page 1, column 4) tion that "freezes the thermostat," and another type of activity that tends to emotionally overheat the apparatus ---the type that "just burns you up"-- leaving the individual feverish, nervous and irresponsible. Someone once said: "Insanity is the result of living in and brooding over the past, or, antici- pating the future... He who can forget the past, await the future calmly, and llve for today, may never reach the pinnacle of fame, but he seldom be- comes an inmate in an institution for the feeble minded . . ." .Possibly it would be advisable to use other methods to eliminate the cause of the worry, despondency and des- pair, and not depend too much on the nrocess of oxidiation for the elimina- tton of imaginative grievances, or the results of wrong environment and un- digestible food combinations. DR. THURSTON H. ROSS ON "SOAK THE RICH" "Soak the rich" embodies a philoso- phy of taxation which obviously goes further back in the evolutionary pro- gress of govermnent than the "horse and buggy days," perhaps even to tile Salem witchcraft and "ducking sto. days," in the opinion of Dr. Thurston H. Ross, professor of management and director of the buerau of bu siness re- search at the University of Southern California. Increase of unemployment and post- ponement of recovery is forescast by Dr. Ross writing in the current issue of Southern California Business Re- view, if excessive taxes are levied on industry. "It appears that taxation may be turned into a kind of fining process to penalize those who have acquired great amounts of property or who receive large incomes," Dr. Ross declares. "If it is attempted to redistribute wealth by making the rich man's tax in effect a fine, more wealth will be annihilated than will be distributed. "The present graduated tax program is justified if the revenues so derived are needed for legitimate government purpose s and if the groups taxed in- clude all those who are able to pay taxes without creating a condition of want. "Business does not exist for the benefit of government any more than government exists for the benefit of ~usiness. The degree of justification of each can be measured only in terms of its contribution to human welfare; tile relationship between the two mu st be one of mutual respect, cooperation and confidence. "Government units have been in- creasingly zealous in telling what busi- ness could do legally. This is as it should be. However, it is high time that business, not only in self-interest but in the interest of all the citizens of the country, should put some limita- tions upon the encroachments of gov- ernment. The most patriotic people in the world may be taxed into social and economic disaster if floe activities for which these taxes are raised are not essential or are carried out in all inefficient manner. "Liberty is a fiction unless liveli- hood is an assurance to the citizenry," Dr. Ross declared in conclusion, --------- :0 :~" CIVIL SERVICE EXAMINATIONS The United States Civil Service Cornmission has announced open com- petitive exanfinations as follows: Engineering draftsman, v a r i o u s grades, $1,440 to $2,300 a year.

STROLLING 'ROUND AVALON (Continued from 0age 1, column 2) The most corteous of taxicab driv- ers are found in Avalon. Once a year O'tis Dunlap and I make a tour through a 5 and 10-cent store, only to find later we have no use for the things we bought. Avalon folks can wear a big smile from now till next year. Jan Garber will be back in 1936. Art LaShelle brings more of the latest motion pictures to Avalon than anyone else does to a town of the same population.

THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY FAIR FOR 1935 PROMISES MUCH An excellent idea of the scope and magnitude of the fourteenth annual Los Angeles County Fair, to be staged in the big exposition park in Pomona September 13 to 29, is contained in the report that 20,000 premium lists have just been mailed out to as many pros- pective e x h i b i t o r s throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America and other countries. The number is 25 per cent larger than at an3" previous time. In the kousehold arts department alone there wiii be an increase of 35 per cent in the number oi exhibitors. Because of the thousands of differ- ent classifications the premium list is printed in seven volumes, each one containing from one to three depart- ments. The volume devoted to live- stock and dairy products contains a list of over 300 competitive classifications for entries. The poultry, pigeon and rabbit shows, fornfing the largest ex- hibit of the kind in the United States this year, is responsible for another volume. The agricultural volmne leads with over 1500 classes in agriculture, horticulure, floriculture, apiary and cit- rus fruit show. It is expected that there will be specimens of every fruit and vegetable grown in the civilized world. One of the most interesti'ng volumes is that containing a list of the classes and prizes for women's activities, in- cluding needlework, c u 1 i n a r y and handicraft. Women are offered over 1000 different classes in which to enter the products of their skill. The big double junior fair contains 400 conl- petitive classes for the boys and girls, including 4 H members, Future Farm- ers, Boy Scouts, Campfire girls and other youth organizations. Other volumes are devoted to the Night Horse Show, the horse racing program, etc. --'O:~ The influx of non-resident indigents into California during the past three months has shown a decrease of 30 per cent, according to official census figures compiled by the Federal Tran- sient Service and released by the Realty Interests Non-partisan League.
