PAGE FOUR THE CATALINA ISLAND SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY Contimw,! from page 1, column 4 The more recent books on psycholo- gy-arc dexoting some attention to the elemems of hmnan blood, and particu- larly to the activities of the endocrine glands. The "blood odors" are un- doubtedly intensified by endocrine se- cretions. For some time the writer of tbis colnmn has endeavored to obtain information regarding the analysis of blood extracted from a "blood hound." And particularly the analysis of a dog used for the pnrpose of "tracking crim- inals." SUNSHINE PSYCHOL~ Y "What type of persons are the most proficient in detecting the various ex- pressions of human emotion?" is an- other question asked:by T. C. F. An- swer: Expressions of emotion arc best recognized by persons who' study the "dramatic arts." Except those emo- tions which are very pronounced, such as bate, anger, etc.. the average mind is not very keen in detecting emotions and motives. A keen mind is frequent- ly able to d&ect an '%y;e and ;eyebfo~a' expression.of sytnpa~thy, when no words arc spoken. To the "understanding mind," an exl)rcssion from the "eye and eyebrow," originating near the "heart," cari'ies a wartnth of sincerity and sympathy and "words" only "~0~ the activity." SUNgH|NE PIIYCHOLOGY Anent the paragraphs written last week on the"subjeet of "Appreciation," one of onr readers sent the following: "A man surrendered his street-car seat to'a woman, anti then 'begged her pardon 1" "I didn't speak!" repli~ed the haughty female. "Please excuse me," the man replied, persistently. "I'm a little deaf, and I chough~ you said 'Thank you for the seat.' " SUNSHINE PS YCHOCOG Y The correspondent also adds :. "Don't you tlfink the man was justified in banding the woman a jolt for her lack of appreciation ?" THE[ CATALINA ISL.ANOI[R ONE EDITOR'S THOUGHTS The Aransas PassProgress rises to remark : "Another disadvantage of the air- iplane is that you can't strut it down iMain street and make anybody envi- ! OnS." ' "Most of the big jobs, however, are }hehl by men who can't remember the i football scores of last week." "One reason why the good are more ~nunlerons than the wicked is because Abe classifying is done by the good." "An old-timer is one who can re- :member when ~irls weren't supposed to ~l)r ),)()s,, except during leap year." "Radio waves penetrate the remotest jum..dcs, but the savage has no set, and :it is strange that he is savage." "With aviation advancing so rapidly tbe next war will be won by the nation that can control the weather." "It is only in time of peace that American admirMs and generals whine after getting licked in a row they start." "Doubtless most of our fire-eating patriots bare already picked out the kind ()f desks they will use in the next war." "You aren't definitely middle-aged unless you wonder at times if that pai,, .is caused by cancer."

CATALINA MERCHANTS ARE IN ON THE MOTT RACE (Continued from page 1, column 2) mainland br~adcast, with Chief Engi- neer Murphy of the Warner Brothers' station in charge of the short wave in- stallation on Thomas' yacht. So all is well! On Thursday of last week I received the official license from the Radio Com- mission to operate my two transmitters from KFWO----the regular 1000 kc fre- quency, and that of 5650 kc (53.07 me- ters) with 100 watts power---~perating simuhaneously on all programs, hence- forward. Had the most delightful two honrs chat with Don Lee at his offices in Los Angeles on Monday. Certain very excellent suggestions were made by him relative to a possible relation between his two stations--KFRC (1000 watts) at, San Francisco; KHJ (500 watts) in Los Angeles, and KFWOI If it works out according to our chat there will soon be a splendid combina- tion of programs on the air from the three stations! The cup given by Don will be known as the Cup "Pre- sented by the. Don Lee,.Station KHJ." "It never rains but it pours" is aa ancient saying, and, by Jove, it's true, for on all sides I receive nothing but the most generous help, and words of commendation and encouragement. From Catalina Island Post, No. 137. ~American Legion, come a vbry useful cheque, "by unanimous vote.,' tbe Com- mander said, as he handed it to me. The generous gift will be used for the Cups, and the fullest credit given to my sporting buddies! It's great to be alive! Stop press! Just time to get in an- other evidence of a southern Califor- nian's generous kindness! Don Lee, who is too well known for me to have to explain who he is, called me up and asked what the dickens I meant by "telling the world" that he is giving the SECOND Prize, in my Outboard Mo- torboat Race. I made reply as best l could, to the effect that I had deeply appreciated his offer to me, while I was in his offices last week, of "a prize," but that I did not wish to "soak" him, merely because I had his confidence! "Thats all stuff and non- sense, Lawrence! I want to give the First Prize--so put me down for it, Goodbye!" And that was THAT! As the First Prize is a very large Cup, Sterling silver, with an outboard motorboat going at full speed, emboss- ed in silver on it, the costs of the one Prize, alone, is approximately $400.00. So the extent of Don Lee's sporting kindness is self evident[ May the Lord keep His weather eye lifting on him-- always !
