Doctor Hosktns siild, "but although practical clues arc available for further study of the problem, It Is receiving an almost negligible proportion of the total funds and efforts now being devoted to medical research." Dreadful' Disease One-fifth of all American hosyiltal beds arc filled by dementia praecox patients, ho went on, and losses resulting from the disease :iro estimated at a million dollars a. day. Sufferers from rlemontla praecox generally nre agreed to be In a mental condition resembling a "waking dream," and perhaps, said Doctor Hosklns, "tho characterization of tho psychosis as a dream state Is worthy of more literal acceptance than bnd previously been supposed. A dreaming mind In a somnolent (sleeping) body appears to bo tho fundamental condition of tho psychosis. The body, however, Is rather easily aroused, whereas tho dream Htato Is notably resistant to correction." Dog Exhibited A do§r whoso Insldes are "disconnected" for purposes of studying secretions of tho stomach and Intestines, but which plays as happily a.s any other dog when not being used In experiments, was exhibited by I'ro- fessor B.

Press Leased Wire) HATAVIA, Java., Feb. 9. — Possibilities of a sea battle were envisaged within comparatively few hours today between tho rebellious cruiser De Xe- ven Provlnclen and Dutch naval and air forces rapidly converging on the mutineers, who are still steering a defiant course In tho Indian ocean along the Sumatra coast. The native Malay mutineers renewed an offer of conditional surrender, which was spurned by the naval authorities, who demand Immediate unconditional capitulation and declare they will open flro If tho rebels resist. Without giving the precise details of the movements of ships and aircraft, which was deemed unwise an the mutinous ship Is equipped with wireless, officials stated steps for a westerly concentration of navnl forces, which originally wcro 1500 to 2000 miles away, were taken Immediately after news of tho De Seven's seizure was received. The runaway cruiser's position at j 4 a. in., Java time, was given as 3.56 | degrees south, 100.44 degrees east. It I was proceeding on a southeasterly ' course at a speed of 7% knots.

Equalization Board and Rolph Row Over Taxes ( /'rend Leaned Wire) S ACRAMENTO, Feb. 9.—A definite break over tax policies between Governor Rolph and the State Board of Equalization was Indicated here today In a statement Issued by Fred E. Stewart, board member and director of the tax research bureau.- Stewart reiterates his charge that Governor Rolph wno In error when he said recently that the tax research bureau had not showed In Its report that public utility taxes required equalization. The statement further declared the so-called Rlley plan for revision of California's tax system had "much to offer the average citizen, If retention of the present system means perpetuation of ths gross In•qualities existing In tax burdens borne by the ordinary property owner and the utilities." "State Controller Rlley'o plan Is worthy of thorough consideration by all taxpayers," said Stewant. "Obviously there Is no equality of burdens under the rates now prevailing, and something must be don* without delay to remove the real propirty owner from his exposed and perilous position." The outstanding points of the plan worked out by Rlley are found In provisions calling for a limitation of property taxes so that net more than half of government expense will be met from this source and th« Imposition of a gross receipts tax on all Income at a low rate to provide the remaining funds needed for state and local governments, In.
