Slosson Director Science Service, Washington The intrepretation of dreams has been an object of eager interest for more than three thousand years. The latest journals of psycho-analysis deal with the same question as the earliest papyri of "f'~gypt or cuniform bricks of .\ssyria, and with little more suc- cess. IsT~'t it time then that we attacked the problem from the other side? In- stead of wasting so much time endeav- orlng to determine what dreams mean, would we not make better progress if we tried to find out what makes dreams ? Then we couh[ get whatever dreams we liked and whenever we liked and need not bother about their interpretation. We now have some prospects of pro- gress in this direction for our new knowledge of the hormones gives us a clue. A case in point is" reported by Finley. fie had a woman patient to whom he gave a grain a clay of ex- tract of the pituitary body to build up her blood pressure. Her dreams had hitherto been trivial and colorless, but after ten clays of the treatment she began to have pleasurable and highly colored dreams. She travelled exten- sively in her dreams, as she had al- ways longed to do in reality, and wherever she went she found the sta- tions and cars freshly painted in pleasing colors and the trainmen in nice new uniforms with goht braid. Shortly after, the treatment was altered and adrenalin, another of the glandular secretions, was substituted. At once a change came over the spirit of her dreams. They lost their colors and became horrible, filled with violent quarrels. Now if a Freudian practitioner had taken the case, he would have pro- ceeded to probe for complexes in her unconscious without even putting her under an anesthetic. He wouhI diag- nose the former dreams as due to "suppressed desires," instead of pitui- trin, and the latter as due to "infan- tile fears," instead of adrenalin. Yet the doctor could produce either brand of dreams at will by au infinitesimal (lose of white powder. Fear and rage promote the secretion of adrenalin fronl the suprarenal glands. Conversely, the injection of adrena- lin, which may be made in the labora- tory, will stimulate the symptoms of fear, the goose-pimples, the hair-rais- ing, the cold-sweat, and all that. And James showed years ago that with the sympton~s come the corresponding emotion. it seems from this case that dreams may be made to order like picture postcards, one cent plain and five cents colored. Common dreams come plain in black and white and grey, chiefly grey. Most of us are colorblind for a third of our lives. My dreams are usually fragmentary and fugitive, are shadowy and colorless. But once when I took laudanum there was unveiled before me a series of the most wonder- ful pictures, minute and sharp as the CONFECTIONERY Corner Crescent and Catalina Avenues C. C.
