"Catalina, the Year-Round Fairyland" is the title of the float, which fits admirably into this year's theme of the tournament, "Fairy Tales". Rising as a dream of fairyland from Aladdin's lamp, Avalon Bay with the Casino reproduced in yellow c'hrysan- themums to the minutest architectural detail, emerges from a cloud of gray- blue stevis that issues from Aladdin's lamp. Flying-fish darting hither and yon, the steamer and smaller craft afloat on a sea of blue flowers, with two swordfish, each mounted by a bathing girl, rising from its depths, give a vision of Catalina that will be readily recognized by everyone. A beautiful Bird of Paradise will grace the "front of the float, which will be drawn by four lively fairies costumed in the most delicate shades of shell- pink and orchid, with gossamer butter- fly wings on their s'houlders. A tiny fairy, in the person of Barbara Pitzer will wave her wand over Aladdin's lamp. Four Catalina girls, the Misses Katherine Brown, Joan Lamb, Mary- elyn Boles and Kay Marincovich have been chosen for the fairy princesses who will escort the float.

WHERE?- to the ANNUAL NEW YEAR"S EVE MASQUE BALL in the NEW CAS- INO at CATALINA. If you have been there before, NUF SAID! If you have never attended this event, you are invited to come and join the MERRY throng and wel- come in 1933. Forget your troubles and LET'S GO'! The Avalon Merchants and the San- ta Catalina Island Co. have donated twenty-five prizes for the best cos- tames. This is a real old-time Masque Ball, and as usual, the NOISE MAK- ERS! Those who live in Avalon have planned their parties and have invited many friends to come to the ISLAND for the fun . If you live on rhe main- blooms were used to make a back- ground for the reproduction of the Ca- sino. The total number of flowers used for the "Catalina Magic Float" has not yet been annoulmed. As the parade winds its way along the streets of Pasadena, the miniature chimes, with their silvery tones, will play "Av- alon", and "Aloha"--Catalina's greet- in.< and farewell. Many residents of Avalon are plan- ning to take the Sunday afternoon steamer across to the mainland to wit- ness the Rose Tournament which will be held on Monday, and take in the football game in the Rose Bowl fol- lowing the parade. Sunshine Psychology MOTIVATION By The Editor A Hapl)y and PrOsperous New Year to All ! Just what I933 has in store for the peoples of the world is somewhat problematic. The writer of this cohmm makes no claim to prophecy, but the present in- dications for worhl peace point to the fact that human ingenuity nmst soon find a way to use up its surplus en- ergy, through work or revolution, or "world peace" will be nothing more than an ideal in the minds of a few, for many. years. The channels of human energy and motivation cannot long remain dam- med up as they arc now--and have 'been during the past three years. Something nmst snap! l'rograms social, industrial and eco- nomic that seem promising, require men aud womeu who have the Moti- vathm and the energy to trot their ideals into action. Society is demand- ing "a new deal". For psychologists to now give up their study of human relationships and human emotions would be like closing a hospital during an epidemic. Men are just beginning to comprehend the driving power of emotion and Motiva- tion and its influence upon society, re- ligions, industry and government. SUNSHINE PSYCHOLOGY For the past decade, 'human beings have thought of "personality" as a magnet that attracts success and pros- perity. And many persons have sought to "cash in" on such magnetism! The true function of "personality" is to combine appearance, behav'ior and mo- tivation so that the entire social struc- ture is benefitted by the individual COlt tribution s. In the program of "technocracy" the stu~tent of psychology can trace the influence of Motivation and the driv- ing power of the group desire for change in human relationships. Only by directing the flow of "surplus en- ergy" by leadership, can a world-wide catastrophe be averted. A thousand men trapped in a burning building stampeeded, crushing each other to dearh. But that thousand men under the able leadership of a "fire-chief" and equipped with makeshift fire- fighting equipment, may save the buihling and also prevent injury. Much depends on the Motivation that stars the emotional activities of the individ- ual and the group. Think it over.
