PAGE TEN THE CATALINA KING OF GUM HEADS LIST; WRIGLEY TAX OVER MILLION William Wrigley, Jr., chewing-gum manufacturer, was revealed as Chica- go's richest man--on the face of the government returns--when Mrs. Ma- bel G. Reinecke, collector of internal revenue for the Frist I11inois District, opened her income tax lists for inspec- tion last week under the publicity clause of the revenue act. In his March return Mr. Wrigley showed himself liable to a tax of $1,134,420.39. The William Wrigley, Jr., corporation paid $649,352. No other Chicagoan, so far as ex- amination of the returns disclosed, is anywhere near the $1,000,000 mark. James A. Patten, the wheat king, is one of-the first on the list, and his tax of $201,906.68 is almost $1,000,000 short of the bill against Mr. Wrigley. The Wrigley tax is within a few hundred thousands of the $1,984,254 levy on Edsel Ford's earnings in 1923. Henry Ford's son is paying the third largest personal tax thus far published, with his father second and John D. Rockefeller, Jr., first. The Rockefeller tax is $7,435,169. John Hertz of the Yellow Cab Co. is one of Chicago's biggest taxpayers, with $225,677.45, while Cyrus H. Mc- Cormick, harvester magnate, scheduled an income rating a tax of $230,871.77. Twenty-five years ago Hertz was a "copy boy" in a Chicago newspaper office. INVENTION NEEDED Sir William Bell, the noted British scientist and inventor, makes the fol- lowing suggestions for inventions that are needed in the world: Glass that will bend. - A process to make flannels un- shrinkable.

If you wish to improve your memory for telephone numbers, you must practice connecting telephone numbers with the names of subscribers. If you wish to improve your musical memory you must practice memorizing music. If your wife complains because you can- not remember much of interest from your day's experiences to enliven the supper table, what you need to practice is taking note of interesting items as they occur and then recalling these when the time comes. Great improve- ment can be made in any of tl~ese memory jobs, by devoting time and effort to that particular job. No doubt an expert psychologist adviser could assist any one to improve his memory wark, but an intelligent person can do nmch for himself, once he knows that he needs to train himself for specific memory jobs, and that the problem is one of management rather than of in- herent memory power. The first step is to see exactly what memory job needs to be perfected. The second step would naturally be to proceed to practice this particular job. But just here a very curious state of affairs often eocnes to light. The man who says he very much desires to im- prove his memory yet finds is very irksom to work at the details of this particular job. In a w'ay he i~ indif- ferent or even unwilling to do this job well. He experiences an inner resist- ance that interferes with his progress. If this seems an impossibility, con- sider once more the sad case of the man whose wife finds him very unsat- isfactory as a provider of interesting news. Is this the sort of man who snaps up eagerly every bit of interest- ing gossip or happening, and who an- ticipates the pleasure of recounting his news at the supper table? Does he relish the job of gathering news items for feminine consumption? Possibly not. Quite possibly he is the kind of man who thinks this beneath his dig- nity. He doesn't regard this as his job. in any big sense. When it comes down to the actual working of this job, he rebels against it. This inner resistance is going to interfere con- siderably with the improvement* which he might make. The chances are that he never will enter into this new game heartily, and will never become a shining example of success in this sort of memory work; but if he can over- come his own resistance it is in his power to improve. It has been done. Poor memory is due-to poor man- TEST YOUR ABILITY On page eleven the editor of the Catalina Islander has purposely made one mistake in spelling. Can you find it? There may be other mistakes in capitalization, spelling punctuation and grammar.

Any sort of memory can be improved if one discovers ex- actly what needs to be improved, and if one can play the game heartily. GRAMMAR SCHOOL NEWS' The children in the grammar school are doing remarkable work in art. They have recently made Hallowe'en posters which are very attractive. The poster will be shown in the spring ex- hibit. The boys from the fifth and sixth grades are very industrious but mostly cautions, for they have dug a pit under the acting bar and filled it with saw- dust. Who Knows, now that this has been done, they may turn out some real acrobats. "I was nearly shipwrecked when we came to the Island." "No wonder your lips tasted salty."
