In fact, he climbed the mast to keep away from the villainous looking thing. Then it started to go down into tile sea, taking the boat with it. However, When one of the tentacles came in contact with the hot exhaust of the engine it let go--just in time to sav~ the boat filling with wa- ter.

Cadet George Banning, son of Han- cock Banning, was an Avalon visitor. "MEET YOUR SON" By Ernest Andrew Rogers National Child Welfare Authority; President, Montezuma School for Boys There are two kinds of bad temper. One is like a sudden display of fire- works, flaring up ahnost without warn- ing--and dying down just as quickly. It appears more devastating in its im- mediate aspects, but you will find it comparatively easy to control in your bov--if you get at it before "blowing off"' becomes a too-firmly intrenched habit. The other kind is the habitual bad temper--the chronic surliness of the grouch with a jaundiced outlook on life. That type can't be prescribed for off-hand, for consideration first nmst be given to all possible causes, psychological as well as physical. But if your boy is bad tempered, you nmst be prepared to do two things when he bursts out. Give him time to cool off; and have a definite, practical progranl for teaching him self-control. After a burst of temper I generally persuade a boy to go to his room and think it over alone. Sometiines i take him to mine, turn on the phonograt~h or radio and just let him sit and listen to music f,,r fif- teen or twenty minutes. Then wc can talk more clearly. One of the most interesting cures of bad temper I have ever seen was in the case of a b~y whose habit of in- dulging in fits ~,f anger and abusing" his teachers g,~t him expeiled fr,mt general schools. \Vc talked of the need for controlling his temper, and he seriously agreed to make a try. Eventually, however, he flared up oxer a petty :natter and cursed his instruc- tor without couscience. Later, when I was called, he lot~scd a line of pro- fanity which would have done dubious credit to a mule skinner. "Go ahead," I said. "Get it off your News Stand E. WlNDLE, Prop. THE CATALINA chest." And with a little encourage- ment on my part whenever he seemed to falter, that boy stood there and swore roundly at me for one full hour. Suddenly he subsided, his vocabulary apparently exhausted, and waited to learn his puuishment. I sent hinl along to his room, and for the rest of the day made no move to see him, though he twice requested a talk. Meanwhile, he pondered over my apparent indifference to his out- break. In the evening he came to me again. "I want to do something I've never done before," he said, "I want to apologize for the way I behaved this morning." Shocked out of ~is rage, by not hav- ing been punished immediately, the boy had had time to think things out. From that time we were fast friends. He knew when things got to ferment- ing inside he could always come and talk it out. But he came less and less frequently, and as time went on brought his temper completely under control. o Try a little Adlet for your wants. John F.
