THE CATALINA "ISLAT sunburla (Copyright 1925 by" Science Service) (Continued from last week) IV "Show Me A Rudimentary Organ" One of the favorite methods of anti- e~olu'donists is "to ridicule the idea that the parts of ananimal develop in response to needsfor "d~em, and that they. vanish with the passing or such needs.

Angleworms haven't any eyes, either, but on each joint of their bodies are spots that are sensitive to light. An- other and very different kind of worm, the ltatworm, has just two brownish spots near his head end that are sensitive to light. Away back, somewhere around here, the two-eyed idea became established, and it has per- sisted ever since. What happened then is quite clear to anyone who can use both reason and imagination; and it was exactly what Mr. Bryan says did not happen. Again, take the business of getting legs.
