PAGE FOUR arr of the itti "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) What's the good of a big fist when there is no head back of it ? It's like owning a high-powered automobile with its ignition system on the blink. Uncontrolled temper is just as dis- astrous to human thought and ideals as an uncontrolled airship is to human life. When we kill good thoughts, no one goes to the funeral because the thought-killer did not appreciate what he had destroyed. The value of a good thought is es- tablished by itspower to control hu- " man activities; to lessen suffering, whether of the mind or the body; to lessen the nervous strain and tension, and to bring about a more harmonious operation of the human physical and mental organisms. When the mind and the body are healthy and functioning effectively the zenith of individual hmnan power is reached; when two or more minds are operating in unison it is the applica- tion of the individual effort that is bringing about a methodical and har- monious result. As it were, the indi. vidual mentalities are moving in the same channel. As H. L. Pittock, one of the owners of the Portland Oregonian, once said of.his partner, Harvey Scott: "We do not always agree; but we never fail to arbitrate." Worry, hate and jealously are pro- ducts of the mind. Joy and happi- ness are also products of the mind, just as flowers, fruits and vegetables are products of the soil. Man's ap- preciation of all things in Nature is brought about by the unfoldment of the higher ideals and control of the impulse to destroy. If you write words on. paper, then destroy them, you are performing the same act that you would if destroying worry. And you nmst again think, speak or write to form mental words that cause the emotions to function with the best thoughts. A lot of people are like ships with sails and no anchors, or high-powered automobiles without brakes. When they get off the highway they" crash through everything until their energy" is expended. Figuratively speaking, they allow the physical engine to dash out their own brains. In the scramble for wealth most of eus forget that the most precious pic- ~ture in the world is that which flashes across the mind in the last moments of human existence. There are the scenes of a lifetime, and the silver lin- ing of the new world. DO YOU PRIZE THAT MAGAZINE OR BOOK? They will last much longer if they are bound in a neat cover; and that Radio Journal, or record, can be pre- served for future reference. How about that old prayer book or Bible ? Does it need a new cover? Let the Islander do it for you. Catalina will give you the rest of your life. Come to Catalina• SAYS: (Sunshine Psychology Service) "It is said that the yellow color of the Yellow Sea, off the coast of China, is due to the inunense quantities of silt clay carried down by large rivers that flow into it. Now, we want a rea- son for the blue, gray and green colors of the Pacific ocean." "Many anglers fail to realize that a tuna or a swordfish moving about the ocean at twenty miles an hour is a big responsibility." "The advisibility of diving overboard when a swordfish is plunging round in a circle, depends largely on the amount of insurance the angler has provided for the widow." "When you cast bread upon the wa- ter expecting it to return to you four- fold--see that there are no sharks in the neighborhood !" "The angler who is too busy to read educational stuff about his own sport is like the kid chopping wood with a dull axe." "Remember the guy v,'ho made good mouse traps? So it is with the sea- angling game. Test your tackle and then put on an attractive bait." "Advertisiug is a labor-saver in more ways than one. But, when you are ad- vertising to fishes that 'my bait is the best,' you've got to deliver them the goods." "\Vhat's the difference between a woodpecker and a wood-chopper ? The little bird uses its head." " 'I'll try anything once,' said a fa- mous heavy tackle angler when he bought a new light tackle rod last week." "\Vhen I see a couple of Camel jockeys trying to bum a Lucky Strike off Phil Morris, when he's only got on a wet bathing suit, I get a lot-of com- fort out of the old corn cob pipe." "Times have changed! I'll say so. Twenty years ago we used to go out with a handfull of bait and come back with a boat load of fish. Now all we have is a boat load of hardluck stories." "Keeping up the standard of sea- angling is a duty that each one in the game owes to himself and to his fel- low" sportsmen. Anglers are engaged St. Catherine Hotel eauty arlor OPEN TO PUBLIC Deep French Wave Marcelling and Facials Our Specialty PHONE FOR APPOINTMENTS J in the pastime for one thing only, that is for the pleasure of the game. And the man who lowers his standard of pleasure is very apt to lower his stand- ards in everything else." "One of the porch chair anglers was doing stunts with a few cards the other (lay, taking them out of his coat sleeve, etc., when he was asked, 'Did you ever take a swordfish or tuna out of the ocean ?' " "'There ain't no place in the wor]'d for the guy with an artistic soul,' la- mented the young movie actor on the board walk the other evening." Fishin' Fer Fish "I ain'ta goin' ter fish no more, no more, I ain'ta goin' ter fish no more: Why should I get wet, and sweat On the ocean floor? When I've got my record- I ain'ta goin' ter fish no more !" But, He Wouldn't Have Fish " 'If you had my brains and that big fish,' an angler was told while exhibit- ing his catch on the pleasure pier, 'you'd make a million dollars.' " , DAVID P. BOOSTS JOHN L. One of the biggest boosters Judge John L. Fleming has in his campaign for election, to succeed himself on the superior court bench, is David P. Fleming, secretary of the Santa Cata- l.ina Island Company, and formerly in a high position with the Banning Transportation Company, which oper- ated the boats between San Pedro and Catalina Island. Brother "Dave" recently sat on the bench as a guest while Judge Fleming was trying a case, and was so impress- ed with the need for good, fair, sym- pathetic, sound-sensed men to adminis- ter justice as provided by law, that he made up his mind then and there to do all in his power to reelect the Judge. Nulnerous signs of the Judge's cam- paign are seen in the Harbor district, and the miles of highway leading into Los Angeles--all the work of Brother Dave, and indicating that he is making good his promise to work for the Judge's success at the polls. The Fleming boys were raised on a ranch at l)owney, where they were all born, and on Saturday evenings and holidays they drove the long miles to the beach in their "buckboard" to en- joy the surf and the picnics. It was there that Dave became connected with the Catalina service, while John, the future Judge, went to Los Angeles to study law, earning his way for himself and wife as he went along. Judge John used to carry Los Ange- les papers to Redondo Beach on a hand-car at three o'clock in the morn- ing, and returned to the city in time to clean up and be at the law office, where he was reading Blackstone, at nine o'clock. Fie performed various office and stenographic duties for Judge James C. Rives and Judge Cur- tis Wilbur, now Secretary of the Navy, meanwhile. Henry--Gracious, your mudguard is all smashed!
