PAGE TEN THE CATALINA ISLANo g CATALINA PIONEER PASSES AT HOLLYWOOD A t e I e p h o n e conversation from Hollywood early Wednesday morning stated that Ben Rosin, of 5760 Hol- lywood boulevard had passed away after an illness of several months. Mr. Rosin was 79 years of age. He is sur- vived by his widow, a daughter Mrs. J. Irmas and three sons Victor, Stan- ney and Elmer. Fmaeral arrangements to be an- nounced in the Los Angeles daily newspapers. Before retiring from an active busi- hess life ten years ago, Mr. Rosin re- sided with his family for many years at Avalon. He was the owner of sev- eral pieces of local property and since 1919 has been the owner of the Her- mosa Hotel and bungalow courts. The many Avalon friends of the be- reaved family extend sincere sympaLhy for the loss of their father. HENRY ili BORN ON CATALINA ISLAND Henry Laws III born July 24, is said to be the first colored child born in Avalon. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Laws, Jr. of Tremont street. Now, what is puzzling Henry Laws, Jr. as a father, is to decide whether Henry III should be an aviat- or or a prize-fighter. Henry, Jr. is confident that his son many some day be operating the cross-channel air- planes as a pilot, or, perhaps holding the heavyweight championship title, or, perhaps Henry III may be par excell- ence in both lines of activity. The boy was born on Tremont street and Dr. H. G. Cook was the attending phy- sician. DID YOU EVER STOP TO THINK? By Edsott R. Waite Shawnee, Oklahoma GOVERNOR DAVID SHOLTZ, OF FLORIDA, SAYS : "There is no citizen of city, state or nation who should enjoy the opportu- nity of making, a living without in some way giving a little of him---or herself---in worth while public service. "The principle is an old one, but the basis upon which our nation and its political subdivisions is laid will never reach a greater nearness to per- fection until this is accomplished. "Such service must, naturally, come with the full free will of the giver and with the greatest possible portion of cooperation between the giver and the political unit tlfttt is the receiver. In addition, a way must be found to guarantee cooperation and coordina- tion of effort between all persons striving for the success of government. "Every nation in the world has seen, at one time or another, the gross errors and disadvantages that can and do result when the service of its com- ponent units and its workers is based on selfishness and the desit'e for in- dividual gain. This principle of opera- tion HAS NOT and CANNOq" BE SUCCESSFUL in accomplishing one of the fundamental aims of a democ- racy-providing the greatest good for the greatest number of people. "Men and women who enter into public life from motives purely un- selfish realize that dog-in-the-manger tactics work sure destruction to any proposal for general betterment. They hesitate not to bring their problems and their plans, as well as their criti- cism of the plans of others into the open for frank, unbiased discussion and criticism. They know that sulk- ing over fancied slights is one of the most certain destroyers of progress, AND THAT SELFISHNESS IS A CLOSE RELATIVE TO THE ABSO- LUTE RUINATION OF ALL SYS- TEMS O2~" DEMOCRATIC GOV- ERNMENT.

THROUGH A ! By JEAN NEWTON I THE BOY SAID A MOUTHFUL THE king of Jugoslavia was asked what he wanted for Christmas. "'A motorcycle," he answered prompt- ly. "But, Peter," said hls grandmother, "you can't have that--you're much too young to ride a motorcycle!" "But I am the king!" said Peter. "What's the use of being king If I can't have what I want?" We will not envy the king's grand- mother the Job of enlightening him. The question reminds us of similar ones, asked by adults old ~mough to know better. "What's the use of being boss, when I'm not free to do as I please?" "What's the use of my position, when It only complicates life for me?" "What's the use of success, when It does not bring me happiness?" Did his grandmother tell the boy king that his mistake was neither an original nor an unusual one? Did she tell him that of all the people In the world who are least likely to be able to do as they please and have what they really want are the kings, the bosses, the men and women who have success or a position of power? Did she. tell him that the one great return that all these people have in conunon is responsibility---that responsibility Is incompatible with freedom? In short, did she tell him "there's nothing in it?" To "What's tile use of behlg king?" did she answer, "the privilege of work- lug hard, of worrying much, of subordi- nating personal desires, and--perhaps --of serving a little?" Did she reveal the disillusioning fact that one of the chief privileges of power, us of suc cess, is the unceasing struggle to hold that possession? That happens to be more true of kings today than It used to be. But it is a law of nature that the top of any heap is the place where you have to guard against falling. What's the use of being on top if you can't have what you want? Boy, "'you sald a mouthful!" Bell Syndleate---WNU Servloe. MICKIE SAYS-- "TM' BOSS ~E-'Z.

Every young man and young in this country should study the Here are two or three articles which send Old Age Pension Plan should interest you. Young folks should read the one written bg Mr. Eccleston of the Cinderella Dress Shop. Plans are being laid for a National Convention of members of Town- send Clubs from all over the United States. It will probably be held the latter part of Ostober. Did you attend the regular meeting of the Townsend Club on Monday evening? If you are able to go you should be present and encourage those who are "staying with the ship." CORRECTION W. H. Stone desires to make a cur rection in his article which appeared in the last issue of the Islander, which stated "no one person in Avalon fully understands the T o wn s e nd plan." It should, have read: "I do not believe one person in ten fully understands it." There are a great many here who have made a deep study of it, and can discuss it from every angle. Mr. Ec- cleston is one of the best posted men I know of on the island. I am sure he will be glad and willing to answer any and all questions pertaining to the Townsend Old Age plan. As this plan now stands before the Nation, it is un- wise for any one to condemn it, not knowing the great humane plan that it is. ,It * ROLL OF THOUSAND IS PASSED BY CLUB Townsend club No. 2 at Corona, California, has passed the 1,000 mark in membership, it was pridefully an- nounced at the regular meeting in the "vVoman's ImprOvement clubhomse by Preisdeent Horace Phillips. The audi- torium was crowded to capacity by supporters of the old-age pension movement and the program proved to be one of the most interesting ever presented by the club here. Another announcement which was received with prolonged applause was the enlistment of 20 members locally in the Townsend National Legion was the second to be entered in the nation- at field and the Corona activity in reaching its quota will result in the early presentation to the club of one of the five national prizes. This in- formation came from the Los Angeles headquarters of the movement. TOWNESND PLAN A BOON TO YOUTH By J. W. Eccleston The Townsend Old Age Revolving Pension Plata is misunderstood by nu- merous people who are strong for the movement. It is regarded as salva- tion for the aged, whereas if adopted, it will mean salvation for all our people and the preservation of our govern- ment. Under our present economic system the youth of today has no fu- ture. Unless conditions change precepti- bly the young man of today can lo~k forward to nothing better than a Citi- zens' Conservation Camp, and after that what ? No one can answer that question. The depression which we are now experiencing is simply the re- sult of machine power superseding man power, with the profit flowing into a channel which is continually narrow- ing. It is plain as can be that as the rich get richer the poor must get poor- er. It has been thus from the incep- tion of our so-called civilization, and will so continue until there is a dras- tic change in economic practice. The strong point of the Townsend Plan is not the doling out of two hur.- dred dollars a month to people of possible, suggest something Those now eligible for the have not many years to endure ent conditions, but the young have a long space of time in suffer the hardships of a conti: pression, with its attending It is to the youth of the Townsend Plan should Any boy or girl old enoug~ and think, should give movement and study its puss1 GIVES IDEAS FOR SANDWICH No food is so versatile as wiches, says Inez S. economist.
