PAGE TWO SUNStllNE PSYCHOLOG (Continued from !)age 1, column 4) Yes, sir, there is quite a similarity between "bailer pressure" and "blood pressure". When human beings at- tempt to find "pressure relief" for their emotions, they not only burn up emotional energy but use up the mois- ture of the body, also produce toxins that must be eliminated if mental ef- ficiency ts to be maintained. Nothing slows up mental efficiency more quick- ly than emotional residue, body toxins and nmcous. It is difficult to "think clearly" when you have a cold that produces mucous. Modern psychol- ogy is now advocating "temperature control" instead of "pressure relief" for human beings that are "burning up" with ~restlessness, boredom and nerve thirst. Think it over. ~UNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY Biologists tell us that almost every substance found in any part of the body is present in the blood, in great- er or less amount, on its way to or from the various organs; and that, to some extent, salts are peculiar to the blood. "Phe circulatory system, comprising the blood and lymph and their vessels, is the vehicle of transportation of all substances within the body. Its func- tions include: Distribution of food substances absorbed from the intes- titles to all parts of the body; trans- portation of oxygen and carbon diox- ide in respiration; transportation of waste products of metabolism; trans- portation of internal secretions for co- ordination of the activities of the var- ious organs, inclu(lin;: the protective chemicals to combat internal parasites; and it is believed that these internal secretions not only maintain the chem- ical "balance" in the physical organ- ism but that they "tone up" the cen- ters of receptivity mechanisms used for the circulation of forces and in- fluences that change and modify be- havior and influence the process of thought and thinking. While it is possible for the cosmic forces to penetrate lead, stone, and the "human cranium", the more com- prehensive approach to the problem of external stimuli, would be to as- sume that these forces "ride in on the air we breathe", and as irritants are thus distributed to the end organs, etc., via rhe oxygen distribution sys- tem. Examine closely that sensation k/~own as "inspiration", and note its ch)se relationship to breathing. It is because of this close relationship, that modern psychologists became inter- ested in the two subjects, Oxidation and Motivation. 21,000 LBS. FROZEN SWORD- FISH FROM ORIENT When the Japanese steantship, "My. Asma Maru" arrived at Los Angeles a few days ago from the Orient, among the cargo discharged from the vessel at that port, were 70 frozen swordfish, weighing 300 pounds or :n~re each. For the past three, or four years it is said that tons of frozetv albacore and tuna have been shipped to Cali- b~rnia from Japanese waters. What has become of the scientists who, 25 or 30 years ago, used to tell us that it would be impossible to de. plete the fis'hing in Southern Califor- nia waters? In the early days of Southern California fishing, the ship- ment of frozen fish into the state would :have qaused nmch humorous cumment--it was like carrying ~oals to Newcastle. Probably the next news item to startle the angling fraternity of Cali- fornia, will be that of the arrival of a cargo of frozen sardines, smelt, and flyingfish. Already, much of the com- mercial fishing catch is now caught in Ix)wor California waters, some 2000 miles from Los Angeles harbor. --:o:-- "Pa, what does it mean here by 'Diplomatic Phraseology' ?" "My son, you tell a girl that times stand still while you gaze into her eyes, that's diplomacy. But, if you tell her that her face would stop a clock, you're in for it."--Exchange . CLOSE OF THE BICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION The world-wide George Washington Bicentennial Celebration was brought to an official close Thursday with Thanksgiving services in the churches m honor of tile Father of His Coun= try. The United States George Wash- ington Bicentennial Commission re- ports that Thanksgiving services were held by the churches of all denomina- tions in almost every city in America and in the large cities abroad. For the past nine months, since February 22, millions of people in all corners of the world have participated in what was the greatest celebration of tnstory in honor of a National hero. The United States George Washing- ton Bicentennial Commission is now busily engaged compiling detailed re- cords of the Celebration. While these cannot be available for several months, the highlights of the Celebration are here set down. Active work of the Commission, with President Hoover as Chairman and Congressman Sol Bloom as Associate Director, began some two and a half years ago. Plans were mapped out for a nation-wide and world-wide celebra- tion and not for a world's fair or a geographically centralized event. Cooperative Bicentennial commis- sions were appointed in every State, city and practically every town of Am- erma. Besides, committees were ap- pointed among civic, fraternal and re- ligious bodies as well as in the schools. More than 700,000 separate and dis- tinct Bicentennial Commissions and eonmfittees functioned actively during the Celebration period. A conservative estimate by the Unit- ed States George Washington Bicen- tennial Commission claims "dmt more than one million different Bicentennial Celebration programs took place dur- ing this nine months period. The United States Commission has distributed, without charge, more than twelve million pieces of literature in assisting local committees. Historical tmmphlets, plays and pageants, music, educational Immphlets, etc., have been Imblished and distributed from the Commission's headquarters in Wash- ington. Nation-wide educational contests, in tile elementary schools, high schools and institutions of higher learning have been conducted by the Commis- sion.More than two million American boysand girlshave participated in thesecontests. The Commission has distributed to the schools of America more than one inillion large-size tithographed copies of the Gilbert Stuart Athenaeum por- trait of George Washington. Every library in America received a copy of She Colnnfission's special flag chart showing all the flags used in the Revolution. Every Post Office has re- ceived a large poster of Wakefield, Washington's birthplacel More than one million copies of the George M. Cohan song, "Father of the Land We Love," were distributed. This song was written for the Com- mission by Mr. Cohan as his personal tribute to our First President. A special Bicentennial quarter-dol- lar was minted and put ,n general circulation. A special medal was also minted which the Commission awards for meritorious service in connection with the Celebration. Our Post Office issued a series of twelve George Washington stamps to commemorate the Celebration. The Definitive Writings of George Washington are now being compiled and published. This is the most co/n- prehensive undertaking on George Washington ever attempted. Twenty- five volumes will be required to com- plete this work. Wakefield, the birthplace of George Washington, has been restored and turned over to the Government as a national shrine. More than thirty million George Washington memorial trees have been planted since February 22. The Commission collected practical- ly all of the famous George Washing- ton portraits which have been exhib- ited in the Corcoran Gallery of Art of Washington, D. C., during the Cel- ebration. This is the first time that these famous portraits have been gath- ered under one roof. Abroad, seventy-eight countries have participated in the Bicentennial Cele- bration. This was a spontaneous movement, without official invitation front our Government. Twenty-six foreign cities have named streets, parks and squares for George Washington. In Germany alone four cities have renamed thorough- fares for George Washington. The Government of Poland issue.l a special postage stamp iv, honor of tl:e Bicentennial Celebration. In Vienna a new municipal apart- ment house was named after George Washington. The above includes but a few of the highlights of the Celebration. In ev- ery state, city and town in Amertca, commemorative observances were held. Plays and pageants and parades were held. The United States Bicentennial Connnission in Washington hopes to gather all the reports of Bicentennial events from all over the world. Those responsible for these events should send complete reports immediately to the Commission. These will be pub- lished in Memorial Volumes of the Celebration and will be deposited in the leading libraries of America. Un- doubtedly these Volumes will be a val- uable addition to the Washingtonia now available. --- : 0 : ----- GAME FISH OF CATALINA Marlin Swordfish (Tetrapturus mitsu kurii).
