There damage from the "trem- ~bll CATALINA I~LANDER the new advertisements. bringing almost as great a harvest of letters from DELIGttTED listeners, as did the Swim. Please let me take this ol)portunity toexpress my GREAT appreciation for the painstaking work done by Miss Hewitt, handling the station and the microphone, during my absence in the east. She has been WIDELY complimented for her splen- itid efforts, and she deserves every bit t,f it. So does Engineer t'aggi and that very splendid youngster, Sterling Young. \Vith Mrs. l'aggi as acting hostess, the four of 'era were, indeed, The Four Faithfuls of KI:WO--all credit to them! So many people inquire as t() the cost of the baseball broadcast that I think it only fair to satisfy their cur- iosity, though I have u~qltioned the matter till the air. The expenses in- volved am-unt to $260 per hour. I am also asked: "What is Wrigley's idea, anyway ?" It DOES seem strauge that so pathetically FEW of the hu- mall race call conceive of ally qian-- more particularly of a RiCH man-- doing anything for nothing! Aud so it is that when I tell inquirers that the Big Chief's idea in using my station for this baseball novelty, is SOI, ELY one of giving plea=ure to the vast mnnber of Pacific Coast baseball en- thusiasts-and more particularly to the SHUT-INS, and to them that are temporarily laid tll) at home, or in hos- pitals--when I state these FACTS, folk look at me with an expression on their faces of WANTING to believe me, but yet scarce crediting their cars. (If you know what I mean?) Another thing: The Eastern news- papers, and those of the Coast, have been "playing up"--as we say in the vernacular of the press--on the fact that [ have inherited a fortune from my (tear mother's estate. The reac- tion to this fact has been an amusing many places! The fact is as stated, but I FAIL--utterly--to see what earthly difference that should make in my life, or in the attitude of the world toward it! BUT IT DOES! Certain good folk--for all the worhl always "looked good to me," as I try (Continued on page 13, olunm I) ORDER IN LIFE I;y \V. I'. Allen l;iolo~dcal Feature Service hi a recent lecture at the Scril)ps lU- stitution of Oceanogral)hy Prof. C. M. Chihl ,fi the t'niversity of Chicago be- , gan with th.e statement that life is es- sentially or,.lerly. There is no doubt that l!lOSt of )IS are distinctly ill need of this reminder of fact. There are few t)f llS wh() (Io not ignor.c it fre- quently. There arc t/robably nbnc who always think of it at an appropriate time. 011 niore than ()lie (lccasiotl I have set ont plants withont due considera- tion of their abilit3 to get a foothold in the new location under the immedi- ate conditions ()f 1)lanting. In one case some were lost because of highly in- jnrious winds which n'tight have been expected at the season selected for l)lanting. Ill another case sonic were lost through injury from cnt-woruls hidden in tile soil where they were 1)lanted. ]n both cases plants which had be- clime used to a certain rontine of ex- istence involving just so Enrich water, so much wind strain, so nmch injury from insects, aud so on, were sudd.en- ly thrown into a situation where a large number of new adjnstments had to be made without preparation. The extreme disorder l)roduced by the par- ticular conditions named was too much for them and they died. More obvi,,us in its indiffer.ence to the ,,r(lerly existence of living things is our treatnlcnt of imprisoned or do- mesticated animals. Most wild auimals have a certain range of land or water which they patrol singly or in groups with considerably regularity, hnpris- ounlent not ()lily restricts this range but it breaks upthe whole series of external activities which fornlerly con- stituted the visible life of th.e a,linlal. The internal organization of some ani- mals is such that they are able to es- tablish a ncxx order ()f activities to meet these adverse conditions and so to lixe for a time. Others canuot (1(~ do so and they die quickly because they lack means for .establishing a new order of existence. Although few of us have opportunity to observe it in detail, the most fas- cinating evidence of order in life is to be found in the indMdual body of a livin~ thing, or in the bodies of a ,~er- ies of living things. All of these evi- dences of order are mysterious as to origin and in many details of mainte- nance, but there is one which over- shadows all other mysteries, i.e. the method of transmitting of a particular (Conthlued on Page 4, Column 1) Sunshine Psychology MOTIVXTION By The Editor "Your Sunsliine Psychology stimu- lates thought," verites S.H.C. of West Roxbury, Mass.. We thank S.H.~.. for the: letter. It stimulated the following observations : SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY Modern psychology deals with all philosophical attempts to explain the laws of motivation and behavior. From the lowest fornl of life to the highest intelligence, modern psychology seeks the nlystcrions pathways and the in2 gress and egress of the mind and soul. Human beings possess the same fund- amental passions and emotions that are to be found in all life that breathes and receives notirishmcnt through its blood stream and digestiwe tract. Monkeys often get angry, jealous, etc. So do birds and fishes. SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY Now conies the question: Does the human body operate like an "air cool,- .ed" gas engine ? Without "breathing" a gas engine "dies," and the "combus- tion" is faulty. .Man lives in his mind. He is self-operating. Without oxygen etc., man's miud and soul passes into the great beyond. SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY Urged on by the motive to win, an athlete and rtmncr, using all of his physical energies, breathes rapidly. Why? His blood requires more oxy- gen to lessen the endocrine stimula- tions and make them less active. If he is excited, the runner is "racing his en- gine." Methodical breathing lessens ! the physical strain and quietens the excitement. SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY In ohh'n days, when students of bio- logy visited the Avalon aquarimn, some of them wouht jab at the octopus with a long wire--just to excite, aggravate and irritate it. Then the octopus wouht discharge a "cloud of ink" to hide iIsclf from its tormentors. Pres- ently the students would turn their at- tention to other marine specimens, and the octopns would swim to another corner of tile tank and "cool off" by circulating water through its "breath- ing" apparatus. Do the lungs of all "air cooled" animals act as "radiators" for cooling the blood? Think it over. SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY When the human mind is aggravated and excited--and the motive is to be 'disagreeable, revengeful, etc.--it does seem that the mind possesses some force that irritates the "end organs"--- the nerve attd endocrine systems of the body, One observes in anger that (Continued on Page II, Column 1)
