Allen Biological Feature Service If one chooses he may rightly class- ify living things as fighters and n~;n- fighters, the first group including those which may or do make direct attack upon other living things, the sce,nd gr*~up including those which never make direct attack upol3 clher living things. It is true that no one can find fully satisfactory boundaries separating the two groups but, for that matter, the groups designated under any system of classification can not always be clearly separated from. each other. However, much of the confusion depending on this lack cf distinction may be avoided if one examines those examples of a group which seem to show its characteristics plainly. While it may be doubted that any living thing is absolutely devoid of powers of Conflict and of inclination to use them, there is no doubt that vast numberS of diffeient kinds of living things have madea success in life by avoiding conflict and by concentrating their efforts npon development of methods of living in apparent peace. It is true that none of these are at all hesitant about crowding into a posi- tion already occupied, or about de- ouring other living things too small to fight, but it seems that their habit- ual avoidance of open conflict entitles them to classification as pacifists.

This growth was at least a half inch deep and it formed a mat so dense in some places that it resem- bled a close clipped lawn except for its lime-stone color. The success of this enormous popu- lation was, in large measure, surely due to the protection which each in- dividual worm provided for itself by building a lime stone tube for a cover- ing. Even so, existence of the worms was jeopardized by thin crusts of col- onies of bryozoa spreading ove: them like a delicate stony sheet. --'O .---~--'--" AVALON PUBLIC LIBRARY Avalon Branch of the Los At~geles County Public Library, in Atwater Ar- cade. is open every week day from 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 p.m. -- : 0 : --'-'--- DO you know that Avalon has one of the finest winter climates on the Pacific Coast of the United States?
