PAGE TWO SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY (Continued from Page 1, Col. 4) Jena, had had the same advantages as our modern scientists--apparatus for processing the various gasses and controlling forces and energy--he might have advanced different conclu- sions to the problems that then per- plexed his intellect. Perhaps, too, he studied by candle-light! Through the past ages many philos- ophers have believed that "souls trav- eled from one body to another". They couldn't prove it, and modern science has never dis-proved it[ Sure, scient- ists have tried to ridicule all such ~sychic "beliefs"--while they, human crags, all breathed the same air, giv- ing no consideration to the subtle forces in which they are immersed and of which they are a part. If radio, perfumes and other material influences can be freighted to us on the air we breathe, perhaps the po.~i- tlve units, "atoms ol k, ve, sore, spirit and breath may affiliate with the elec trical and gaseous ingredients of the Universe, to be inhaled as nourishment to sustain life. Certain it is that no one has yet succeeded in producing "synthetic" love, or by any design, intrigue or trick have they solved the technique of transplanting love from one mind to another. (Love and passiov are not tile same. Body and breath odors are often repulsive to individuals possess- ing passion and a sensitive nose.) Love, as a force for activating human behavior, according to the late' Pro- fessor Henry Drummond, "is :he greatest thing in the world." ~;UNSHINi PIYCHOLOGY Wisdom and love find expression only in minds and bodies that are conditioned to express them. A mak- er of automobile parts or auy other piece of mechanism may be fawiliar with the sti'ucture of the part he makes, but if he is unable to co-ordi- nate the parts he can form ao com- prehension of the intricate mechanism of the whole. So it is with knowledge. It is not what a man knows that in- dicates his ability to think and medi- tate. How he assembles his knowledge by putting the parts in the right place does indicate his discrimination, expe- rience and intelligence. Many research workers have labor- iously acquired a knowledge of the material things of the Universe, but have failed to co-ordinate the data. To many of them, the information is similar to a "jig-saw puzzle" that they are unable to assemble because some- one is moving the parts. The uni- verse is a growing, living, law-gov- erned object. (And, in this connection we are sometimes concerned regarding the lack of unity of purpose that exists in many of our universities. In one building professors teach "science", in another, philosophy; in another, reli- gion, but there is no department in the university for co-ordination of knowledge. How long can any indus- try exist that manufactures "parts" and never puts them together?) We are informed that no research worker has ever "discovered" a single element in the Universe that is not in his own body or in the food he could eat. Strange, isn't it, that some splrit- ually-minded investigator has not dis- covered a single human "sbul-atom?" 'l~here are so many of them--all bro- thers, tool Perhaps no one is yet "soul conscious !" We have deviated from our usual discussion of human Motivation and breathing. However, the step from human motivation of the finite mind to that of the Infinite must be at- tempted sometime. The human brain does not manufacture its own motives.

Rather, it occurred just as we were leaving Detroit to enter tl~e province of Ontario, Canada. I might say that the incident seems funay now, but at the moment of occurrence we were not doing so well in the way of laughter. (ha the contrary, we were well-nigh mortified, so to speak. We arrived in Detroit on a brisk, sunny morning. Stepping lightly from the De Luxe Line bus which had car- ried us overnight from Chicago to the busy automobile city, we sought a first-class hotel--naturally. You can tell we must have travelled grade-A from the name of the bus fine we chose---De Luxe. A splendid hne, by the by . They remove you from Chi- cago and dump you out at Detroit, all in the short span of 9 hours, for the amazingly reasonable charge of three dollars--and nothing extra for that pretzellish feeling in the middle of your back that comes to you some- where in Indiana.

Minus the appearance of defending title holder, Frank Feltrop, who is not on hand to defend his crown this year, the tournament will be featured by ding-dong battles among the local- racquet wielders aspiring to wear this year's tennis diadem. There seems to be no favorite at the current writing although I like the chances of Ray Jeffries, Lin Campbell, Tom Wilkin- son, Dr. Donald Bussey and Tobe Bak- er among the whole lot. I am rather positive that out of this splendid ar- ray of racqueteers will blossom the next champion. First round matches results are as follows: Lin Campbell defeated E. Crowton, 6-1----6-2; Ray Jeffries de- feated Carl Johnson Jr. 6-3--6-2; C. Reece defeated Ed Feltrop 6-0--6-3; Tom Wilkinson defeated F~ Adargo, Jr. 6-1--6-0; D. R. Arnold defeated Donald Carpenter 6-3--3-6---6-3; Abe Perluss defeated Glen White 6-2---6-4; P. Conrad defeated H. Thuet 6-3---6-4; G. W.iseman defeated E. Turner 11-9--- 6-3; AI Pallas defeated Leslie Thuet 6-2--6-3; E. Westenkuehler defeated Lewis Sullivan 6-1--6-3. TOWNSEND CLUB MEETS (Continued from page 1, column 3) was chosen to read the President's message. It is good news that our Govern- ment, following the example of civil- ized Governments in other countries, will assume responsibility for poverty- stricken old age. A "civilization" in which it is con- sidered disgraceful to turn an old horse out to die should be ashamed to say to an old man or woman, "we have got out of you all your useful work, now starve." THE CATALINA advertising has no bearing on my story, and is neither here nor there. In brief, we located a good--f sh.Juld say excellent--hotel (the Detroit-Le- land, m case you give a hoot), right in the heart of town. During the next two hours we managed, among other things, to pretty thoroughly clutter up a few of their ash trays and leave a couple of deep impressions in their lobby's most comfortable divan. Regarding these two items of service I can give my whole-hearted approba- tion. Beyond that, you will have to seek elsewhere /or information con- cerning the beautiful Detroit-Leland.

The car had been ordered and paid for a cow- ple of weeks previous. But, nevertqe- less, we were mighty tickled that there was no red tape about getting the new bus out of hock. It was all so simple. Emmet just had to sign six or eight release papers, and we were on our way. Why, they even gave us directions how to get out of town---which is what I call darned sporting, ain't you ? Several methods of entrance into Ontario are open to those who desire to enter. We chose the bridge--a great steel span that gives you an ex- cellent view of the river, ~nd the adja- cent two country sides. Driving jauntily up to the American customs officials we answered a few customary questions and imposed upon their good nature to cash a couple of low denomination travelers' checks. Then, over the bridge we trundled with good cheer swelling our hearts. The Canadian customs boys soon chilled that. As we slowed to a halt a stern- visaged chapp~,' in ffhifofm'"flpped':o us. We beamed beatifically at him. Then the occurrence of which I spoke began to occur. I shall attempt to reproduce here the conversation that ensued, as closely as I can recall it: Custom's Chappy: "Good morning, men !" Chorus : "Good morning!" C.
