Tennessee Medical College Attache
Studies Mental Phenomena In
Connection With Dreams.
Memphis, Tenn.—Dreams are
prompted by a desire or a fear, and
often come true, according to Dr. C
8. 8lm 1cIns, of the University of
Tennessee Medical College, whose
hobby Is mental phenomena.
“Dreams frequently come true
and there certainly Is nothing un
canny or of the occult in their ful
filment,” Dr. Slmklns said, as he
stopped to chat on his favorite sub
“We make our dreams come
true,” he said. “When we have a
dream, that Is an expression of a
profound wish or fear. If it Is a
wish we work all the harder to real
"Other dreams are prompted bv
fears that lurk in our subconscious
minds, and they, too, often come
true because of the very condition
that prompted the dream,” he said
“You won’t find many dreamers
among plegmatlc people, who are
content to let things rock along as
they are, without any change for
“Dreams are more frequent and
vivid among highly intelligent and
mentally active people.
"An Individual's experiences from
the cradle to the grave form the
basis for dreams. Any impulse that
registers in the human field of
wakefulness remains, often burled.
In the mind Indefinitely.
"Dreams are set off by some
physical stimulus that occurs in the
hynoldal state between unconscious
sleep and full wakefulness.
"The duration of a dream Is very
brief—no longer than three or four
seconds in the normal person.
'The slightest pain may awaken
a person and In that brief period
before becoming awake, produce a
dream that when recalled later may
seem to have lasted hours.
“In a test we held a hot globe
near the heel of a man. He awak

dreamed of running through hell.
"He had seen a picture of Dante’s
burning hell the day before and

to him with the heat cf his foot
and he dramatized It In his sleep
"There are two aspects to a
dream,” Dr. Slmklns said. "The
manifest content is the picture in

latent content Is some experience
in life, woven Into this picture. In

Dr. Slmklns puts dream books In
the same fake category as occultism
and clairvoyance, but defies any
person to tell him a dream that
cannot be scientifically analyzed. It
provides an excellent index Into
what the dreamer Is thinking, fear

Using the Highways for Walkways.
Valdese has probably saved lives
by the laying of sidewalks along the
route of Highway 10. In crowded
centers, where the regulation of
traffic within itself Is a problem,
It is a dangerous thing for pedes
trians to use the highways. The
death of the boy at Marlon last
week, following his being knocked
off the highway in East Marlon by
a “hit and run” driver, was prob

wonder Is that there have not been
