But now under the changed conditions, he felt a strange new sense of awe. Here rested in storage the •wisdom by which civilization had been built, and 'could be rebuilt. Now that he knew himself soon to be a father, he had suddenly a new attitude, a feeling for the future. The child should not grow up to be a parasite, scavenging forever. And it would not need to.. • Everything was here. All the I knowledge! Suddenly he felt that all civili- sation depended not only upon men but also upon these other things which had marched with him like kinsmen and friends and companions. Take the seven-day week, for instance. Even though you were not religious, you had to admit that the seven-day week with its one day of rest was a fine old tradition of mankind. It had been going on for at least 5uOO years, clear from Babylonian times, and no one knew how much further. Would he ever be able to figure j out again just which day was ^Sunday? As for getting the proper day of the year, that should not be too 'difficult. He knew enough at ut 'the fundamentals of astronomy to "do that, and if he got the time of -the solstice correct, he could figure 'back on last year's calendar and "'perhaps re-establish the day of •the week. This was the time of the year to 'get busy on the problem. Although he did not know exactly, he could "tell from the progress of the weather and from his general! SNnrf.

If the solstice was to be in a week or so, he could easily tell by watching where the sun set. He found a surveyor's transit, and although he did not know much about th« use of it, he set it up on the porch, facing the west. He blackened its lenses with soot, so that he could observe the sun without hurting his eyes. His first observation showed that the sun was going down behind the hilis of San Francisco, south of the Golden Gate. From memory he knew that this was very near to its most southern point of setting. He left the transit in position, and recorded the angle of the sunset. • * * next evening it set still a Julian do it, and weren't there riots and things? But still, they did change it." "Yes, you're right—and I suppose we can change it now if we want to. It certainly gives a person a sense of power!" • * * -7 TVTOT far from the house on San ^' Lupo Drive there was that area which had once been a public park. Tall rocks rose picturesquely and at one place the tops of two of them leaned together, forming a high narrow cave. Near by, a smooth rock surface, as large as the floor of a small room, sloped With the hillside, but was not too steep to sit on comfortably. In those older times which had been before even those that were now called the Old Times, some tribe of people had lived thereabouts, and on the smooth rock surface you still saw the holes where those people had pounded with stones to make their acorn-mash. . One day, after the round of the seasons had passed and the sun for the second time sank well to the south of the Golden Gate, Ish and Em climbed the hillside to- little farther south. And then, war d the rocks. The afternoon as systems do, this system went to was calm and sunny, warm for mid-winter. Em carried the baby, pieces.
