Isaacs an- nounced his resignation from that of- rice, because of hi~ leaving Avalon for several months at least. Following that action he immediate- ]y called Vice-President Earle P(,llok to take the chair, so that he might at once accustom himself to the position. After Mr. Pollok expresse(t his re- gret at the unexpected retirement of President Isaacs, aeveral other mem- bers spoke of the work he had clone in securing the organization of Rotary on Santa Catalina Island, and how he had fostered its growth. Among these speakers were Ralph Heywood, John Toomay, Ray Arnold, and Mal- cohn Renton. Mr. Isaacs responded to the friendly remarks of fellow members by stating that he was leaving with regret and unexpectedly. He explained that he had done similar work for Shrine Conventions when they had met in Los Angeles and other places, that he enjoyed the work, that it was a call that he did not feel that he could de- cline, and that he could not at pres- ent tell what he nfight do or where he would be after that work was fin- ished, late in the coming year. He in- formed those pre~ent that he would be located in the Spring Arcade building, in Los Angeles, on the third floor, and that he would be Mad to see any of the:n when they might be in that city. At this time Ashton Stanley, chair- man of the Program Committee, was requested to in'troduce the speaker of the day. This he did by explaining how the gentleman whom he was to introduce had worked his way up from other positions until he had become Comptroller of the Santa Catalina Is- land Company, and then presented Mr. J. W. Scott, who was given a hearty "hand". Mr. Scott proceeded to explain how his subject, "Business is Better, but Conditions are Worse", could be rec- onciled with its apl)arent contradic- tion. His remarks were listened to with attention, and it became evident that he was master of the situation, and could prove the assertions made in the announced topic. Upon con- clusion he received an even re(we em- phatic "hand" than when introduced. Connnittee Chairlnan Stanley then thanked the speaker for his remarks. There being no further business, the Rotary Club of Avalon was ad- journed. Following is a list of the announced speakers, with their topics, for the next three weeks: November 19th, Mr. J. D. Minster of the Lo~ Angeles City Health Con> mission, will speak on "Problems of Sanitation". November 26th, Mr. Craig Lane of the Los Angeles Rotary Club, will speak on "The History of California". December 3rd, Mr. Joe Kaplan, As- sociate Professor of Physics of the University of California in Los Ange- les, will speak of the "Phenomena of the Stratosphere". Advertisinff is a courtesy due the people. SUNDAY MORNING RIDE FOLLOWED BY BREAKFAST Last Sunday morning saw the first large turnout on the Sunday morning rides, which are planned to explore the many attractive trails and roads of Santa Catalina Island during the fall and winter months, whenever the weather is favorable, as it usually is. Then, at the conciusion of the ride, they all gather in the clubhouse near the stables and enjoy a ham and eggs breakfast, w.ith appetites sharpened by the ride in the clear and clean atmos- phere of the "Magic Isle". "Frenchie" Small, the manager, says that last Sunday morning the return- ed riders practically "licked the plat- ters clean". Those who enjoyed the ride Sunday, which followed the road up around the P. K. Wrigley place and then on the other side of the valley up over the hill to Pebbly Beach, were Mal- colm Renton, Mr. and Mrs. Ashton Stanley, Mr. and Mrs. R. V. L. Wright, Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Heywood, Mrs. Ahna Overholt, Jerry Wykoff, A. L. Laurance, W. Van E. Thompson, Frances Westfall, Ruby Rabey, "Bill" Payne, Peggy "~Vr'ight and Sid Zektin. They each and all proclaimed the ride an epoch in their Santa Catalina Island experiences, and one which they will be glad to repeat from time to time, as opportunity may occur. Children's Riding Class This new feature for the entertain- ment and instruct:on of children be- tween the ages of 5 to 14, takes place every Saturclay morning from 9 to 12 o'clock. Manager Small makes it his business to personally look out for the children who join this class. The youngsters enrolled up to the time of tlns writing include Joan Wal- lace, Gall Paulson, Beverly Heiss, Gregg LaShelle, Dotty N_ornhauser, D~rothy Burgess, Clara Lee Kuhrts, Beverly Berg, Joyce Jennings and Jac- queline Heiss. o- P.-T. A. MEETING The Parent-Teacher Association of Avalon will hold its monthly meeting in the Social Hall of the Comnmn- ity Congregational Church on Monday evening, November 22, at 7:30, when Miss Ruth Beery of the Avalon schools, assisted by a class in reading, wdl g~ve a de:nonstration on the "New Method of Reading" being used in schools today. Alter Miss Beery's demonstration, members of the Association, under the direction of Mr. George Dickson, will present a short and very dramatic sketch portraying the difference in ed- ucational methods of today and fifty years ago, when the "old hickory stick" played such an important part, and the "spelling bee" was the high- light of every schoolroom program. Tne sketch promises nmch in contrast- ing the new and old methods oi learn- ing, as well as thumbnail sketches of Avalon's most prolnising dramatic holms. The National Red Cross has 38,1)00 nurses enrolled for emergency service upon call of the Government or for disasters and epidemics.

We have been request- ed to again discuss ill this colulnn the problems of telepathy, and to give some of the latest developments on the snbject. Our interest in this fascinating topic extends back for "nore than a quarter of a century. Twenty years ago we "expermaented" over radio station KFVVO, then owned by the late Major Lawrence Mott. The object of the KFWO tests was to ascertain, if possible, whether emo- non and motive increased the power of the agency carrying the signals; how the signals were assimilated by the "receiver"; also, what "types" of persons were best suited for experi- mental telepathy. From the KI~WO tests, and obser- vations made since that time, a num- ber of conclusions have been arrived at. However, we are still uncertain as to the correct answer for two im- portant questions: First, "What hap- pens, mentally and physically, when a person uses the expression, 'It has just occurred to me'.. " Second: "Are me telepathic vibrations, exhaled as feeling, e:notion and motive, associated with ~,xygen, carbon-dioxide, or other inhaled carrier substances or gases; and, later inhaled by the 'receiver', to be absorbed ur cuntacted by the den- drites, sinuses, nerves or body fluids ?" LXerves are insulated with myeline). What electrical frequency or agency is used for transnnttmg mental impres- sions ? Some of the conclusions arrived at twenty years ago were: That feeling, elllL;tlvln and inotlve were necessary Iactors to study, that "receivers" shored be con(htioned so that they wt,uid become super-sensitive in the nose, throat and respiratory system; that a "bad cold" interfered wqth the txperm~ents; that the "pituitary-pin- em"--a glandulartype--seemed to have the gceatcst amountof success. in receiving :nessages; that telep~athic. stimuli nmy be inhaled as one inhales, "inspiration"; that to stop breathing or to exhale while attempting to con- tact incoming stimuli seemed to phys- ically close tne pathway or gate; that. when the "thought current" was in: conflict, the extmriment was always a failure; that strategy in experimental teiepathy was never certain; that the tccimJque should be simple, sincere, understandable ; that experimenters may find it necessary to develop a finer adjustment of the physical and mental apparatus... The technique adopted for "broad- casting" was quite different to that used by the "receiver". Broadcasters seemed to have the greatest amount of success when they were of the gland- ular type known as "adrenaline". If human speech is not clear, simple and understandable, a "broadcaster" has difficulty in making himself under- stood. Everyone knows that it is nec- essary to give one's attention to suc- cessfully win an argument. ?herefore, transferring ideas that were not em- phasized with maunerisms, gesticula- tions and voice tones does not cap- ture the attention unless there is a.
