AVALON SOJOURN IDYLL OF MUSIC AND REST (Continued from Page 8 Column 3) president's benefit, but alas, as the hour approached for said concert, the head of this great nation had just breathed his last, and the concert ar- ranged for, which was to be one of joy and gladness, was turned into a memorial service of sorrowfulness and sadness. Man proposes, and the great Lord disposes, is as true today as when it was first uttered; away back in past ages. Mr. \Vrigley, who had come to the band performance one evening, in speaking of the special program he had selected for the president's bene- fit, had only a short time before been a guest at Warren Harding's home. and told us boys of the fact that the latter was passionately fond of nmsic; and as a young n/an, was a mentber of the local band. Mr. Wrigldy did not recall the instrument he played, but the band had a very fair reputation, and was in demand dnring the summer months at various towns for their ser- vices. BLUE WALLS APPEAR TO PROMOTE CHILD GROWTH By Science Service Young animals, and presumably chil- dren also, grow more rapidly in rooms whose walls are painted in light, cheerful colors than they do in dark- painted apartluents. This is the con- clusion indicated by results of re- search laboratory of the Paint Manu- facturers Association. Dr. Gardner experimented with guinea pigs. He placed young animals in cages which had been painted in- side in various colors, and weighed theni at intervals for forty days. At the end of the period the animals kept in white and light-colored cages had made rapid growth, while those in black or dark-colored cages were stunted. The guinea pigs in pale blue. white and light tan cages showed gains in weight of approximately 31. 29 and 20 percent, respectively: those in dark green cages had gained only eight percent, the ones in black cages about four percent, while the unfortu- nates in dark red prisons had put on less than two percent inm'.ease in their weight. The shorter the wave length of the light the greater the growth: These results are in line with recent researches of students of vatamius, no- tably Dr. A. F. Hess of Columbia and Dr. Harry Steenbock of Wisconsin. who have shown that sunlight and ul- tra-violet radiation can be used as ef- fective substitutes for the vitamin that prevents rickets. Light-colored and white surfaces retlect a large share oi the light that falls on them. while black and dark-colors absorb most oi it. The modern system of having walls and ceilings of homes, schools and fac- tories painted in white or in light col- ors thus appears to have a hitherto unsuspected scientific backing. f TENNIS SHOES :k e g "K " What Advertising? Advertising is nothing more or less than salesmanship. By advertising you sell to several hundred people at one time instead of to the single individual. Advertising does nat belong to the realm of magic, it is ability to talk of the product in plain, honest and straightforward terms that ap- peal to the reason and desires of the people whose trade it sought. How do you advertise.'/ There are no e~d of ways in which you may advertise; there is the bill-board, the circular, the poster, the window display, the circular letter, the personal letter, by word of mouth, and the newspaper, the best method of themall. What does advertising do for you?---All advertisingls in~ tended to create good will for the product or service adve~e- tised. Your advertising should create good will for your store throughout your trading aera and thereby " incre~e the volume Of your business or your annual turn-ov.r. -, THE CATALINA ISLAN DER "For Catalina and Catalina's People All the Time" AVALON.
