Although considerable effort was ex- pended to induce the officers of 1932 to serve the association for another year, it was on t'heir recommendation that the new officers were unanimously elected. Before adjournment, the secretary pro-tern, P. S. Allen, announced that there was a cash balance of more than $400 in the treasury; whereupon, a motion was duly made and carried that the retiring officers, President R. E. Mote, Vice-President R. M. Hey- wood, and Secretary-Treasurer E. G. Snow, be given a sincere vote of thanks for their faithful and efficient services as officers of the organization during rhe past two years. The entertainmeut committee ap- pointed for the banquet to be held January 5th, consisted of F. M. Paul- son, Mark Williamson and Ralph E. Brown. In co-operation with the City of Avalon, it was suggested that the Cat- alina Business Men's Association send out 1500 letters inviting patronage to the New Year's Eve Ball to be held at the Casino.

Answer: We have no reliable data regarding the "blood types" of persons who claim to have psychic power. It is said, 'however, that "the breakdown of salts in the human body forms electricity." Also, that under normal conditions the salinity of the blood is the same as the salinity of normal sea water. The problem as to why man is unable to retain his sanity and rea- son and use normal sea water for drinking purposes, is an interesting one. Foods boiled in .sea water art, palatable and wholesome.

Speaking of "doorbells". electrical experinaenters 'have recently discovered that the "doorbell" makes no sound if it is placed il~ a vacuum.

He will also tell you that if you burn fuel just to heat up the surrounding atmos- phere you are using up not only the fuel but also the feed water from which tile steam isproduced. Tem- perature control isnow replacing "pressure relief" as a modern method for reducing the hazards of overheat- ing in all hot water systems. (Continued on page 2, column 1)
