Capistrano is the oldest building In California, the only church intact in which Father Serra officiated. Yet when Father O'Sullivan went to Capistrano in 1910 it was being used as a storage barn for old lumber, barley, wool and olives. The roof was falling in, the rains soon would have crumbled even those seven-foot walls.

And all about was desolation. A snag-toothed picket fence surrounded the mission. Some of the buildings of the once-lovely place had slumped into the earth and nearly all were in ruins. About half the people who visited it did so with the idea of carrying away some substantial souvenir. Some even carted away tiles and building material with which to construct pig pens or cow barns.

Since the earliest biblical times men have striven to interpret dreams. First they were believed to be warnings from heaven; next, symptoms of indigestion; and now, the workings of the untrammelcd subconscious and more valuable than many reasonings of the repressed waking ego. At the Mount Vernon Evening High School, 4066 West Seventeenth street, John H. Doebler, is conducting a class in modern psychology. Doebler has the most complete library of modern psychology In the city, and has been accepted by Freud as a pupil for the coming summer.

The aim of the class is the interpretation of the psychology of society and the individual. The whole course is comprised of forty lectures, the first four on personal psychoanalysis, and the last eight on modern psychology. Freud, Adler. Kemp and other modern psychologists will be studied, with special attention to mental processes, mental hygiene, the interpretation of dreams, the basis of mental hallucinations, and definite methods of developing memory. This class meets Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 o'clock.

It Is a part of the free public schools, and tuition is free. No text-book is required. CABLE VOLUME VS. HIGH CABLE RATES Retention of cable rates at 80 and 90 cents a word between the Pacific Coast and the Orient is as absurd and contrary to modern business practice as the retention of high prices and low sales volumes in commerce. At the present rates, the cable only works a fraction of the to year, the effect of this great work in another decade, perhaps less, will be nothing short of revolutionary.

A new light will shine upon Asia and that light will be reflected all over the world. It should be borne in mind that while the great mass of Chinese often are referred to as illiterate, their illiteracy is not of that crass, stupid order which cannot readily be made to bear fruit in culture of a really high order. This illiteracy may be likened to certain desert regions of this coast with a soil which needs only water to become almost miraculously fruitful. Under the broad sweep of the new educational movement, the great mass of Chinese, with their native intelligence, honesty, industry and frugality, will be given that opportunity for modernization and the adoption of western culture which for centuries has been their greatest barrier from participation in and contribution to world progress and world welfare. With a simplified and standardized language one that can be learned by outsiders and employed in the arts, religious missions and trades China, with Its great wealth of natural resources, can step out as a naliqn equipped to deal with other nations on a free and equal basis.

The various provinces, now virtually isolated from one another by linguistic boundaries as well as by those imposed by the likin or inland customs stations, will be relieved of their isolation and become a true union of states like those of this country which enjoy free communication of every kind. With this free communication, united China will become world conscious and look about for world trade, the potentialities of which, often discussed, but never as yet even remotely realized, will soon be something more than a dream. The needs of this modernized China will Increase a thousand fold and the people of the Pacific area, of which Los Trotzky is a unique character 1 unless you count the Wandering Jew.

Then one passes into a patio containing an acre of ground, beyond which is a large school building, entirely reconstructed from a crumbling wall, yet so lovingly reconstructed that one cannot tell what parts of It are old and what are new. Even the scientists who discover a dinosaur's flipper and reconstruct the entire monster from It have hardly achieved a more difficult task, but there is this difference: Sometimes when one looks at the reconstructed monsters which scientists show he wonders if such creatures ever really existed. But the reconstructed parts of San Juan Capistrano are completely convincing. They are so perfectly in keeping with the old chapel and other parts which were intact but needed strengthening that all have precisely the same atmosphere the atmosphere of adobe days.

"Faith and Two-Bits" "The Iowa farmers are helping us do this," Father O'Sullivan said. "We found we could not count on large contributions from wealthy persons. It was better to put a turnstile at the gate and let everyone pay a quarter and to try to give him a lesson in California history worth more than that. We have six guides, well prepared to tell the story, who show visitors around." "Have you really done all this with quarters?" we asked. "Oh, dear, no, it isn't all paid for yet," said the padre.

"It just had to be done, so we got credit. If we had waited it would have been too late. 3o it's a combination of faith and two-bits." of time, would have to be studied, analyzed and compared. Changes here and there would not tell the story, because climates change in places on account of local conditions, such as the cutting down of forests anything that causes a shifting of air currents. At the peak of the last ice age, this earth was a sorry abode for life.

Sea levels were then some 150 feet lower than now, for the water that rose from the seas remained frozen on land. Twelve million square miles were under a sheet of ice more than a mile thick in places. And half of this area, about 6,000.000 square miles, js still under ice. If this Ice should suddenly melt, every port and all low-lying lands would be submerged. But it is not melting rapidly.

As a matter of fact, a scientific expedition was not able definitely to determine whether the ice sheet over northern Greenland is getting thinner or thicker. Most geologists think the world is growing warmer, and that It will continue to get warmer until the little three-inch trees at Spitzbergen grow as tall as the giants lying buried as coal a few feet under ground. Prof. Coleman of the University of Toronto thinks "we are still in the closing period of the Pleistocene ice age" which prevailed in Southern California at the time the mastodons and sabertooth tigers got caught in the tar traps at La Brea. It wpuld be easy, however, for geologists to be mistaken.

For the years of neglect, so that only the chapel at Capistrano remains as one distinguished by the presence of Father Serra. Its records show that on October 23, 1778, Father Ser ALREADY FOUND Doubtless it is better to make a name than inherit it, but the latter is the lazy man's way.

The idle time Is dead loss. But with rates of 5 or 10 cents a word, that cable would work every hour of the day and Angeles is the commercial capital, will be the market place where these needs will be met. The profit to China and to the Coast will be Inestimable.

In this connection it is timely to stress again the importance of the recognition of the fact by our people that we shall acquire and continue the habit of looking upon the Orient as the Near West and forever discard the appellation of the Far East, which, though it And the results arc S3 beautiful that nearly any time one goes there he will find artists sitting in the garden or patio, sketching.

WOMAN'S GLORY One of the researchers at the recent national convention of the hairdressers told the brethren that women must have been wearing waves at the time of the flood. Maybe there was where the flood came from. Also he told about one of Nero's sweeties who used to braid or mat her hair with sticks and then pack it in a certain clay.

After this she would stow herself away in a nice warm Roman bath for three weeks. When she came out she would be all pink and cream and her hair would carry a wave that would make Britannia cry with envy. When Nero would get a glimpse of this beauty he would telephone to cancel all other dates and would sit at her feet and play the ukulele for hours. At this same gathering of lock-smiths another delver sought to prove that women had always fussed with their hair or sought new means for beautifying themselves. He Insisted that he had proof that Venus herself used lime to bleach her hair the moment she hearl that gentlemen prefer blondes.

But the Pacific countries cannot afford to hold up world progress with rates that stifle trade across this hemisphere. If cable rates are to be lowered or beam wireless stations erected. Canada must understand that the Pacific countries must do it themselves.

Canada certainly cannot expect anything but opposition from England, because English trade in Shanghai, Hongkong, Singapore, will not welcome such a close association with the Pacific Coast as a 5-cent rate would afford. Good business in the Orient is waiting for Pacific Coast cities. It is up to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Vancouver to go out with cheap cable rates to get it. Vancouver Sun.

The tuition fee is a dime and hoboes have the right to a night's lodging.

The attendance thus far seems to justify the undertaking. More than 100 ctudents have registered. Night sessions and the stove are in full blast. Whether a thirst for knowledge, or the unusually cold winter, has prompted enthusiasm, the special workers are silent. Such a university might not be a success in Los Angeles; the weather is too fine.

Lectures and discussions on civics, sociology, history, literature and kindred subjects are given by regular teachers from near-by seminary. A course in public speaking is included in the curriculum. However, that term does not appear in the prospectus. They might shy at it. Judging from the oratory escaping from various vents at the Plaza and on North Los Angeles street at sundry times, elocution would seem to be superfluous.

How to wear a muffler on the mouth might serve society better. If Calvin Coolidge could be induced to teach his variety of oratory in that college, many would highly approve. Flop houses and flop universities may offer district advantages along some lines. In athletics, walking marathons and mouth marathons could be introduced with considerable success. However, if but a few hoboes can be kindled to better things by a little culture, or by blushing up on a college course forgotten, it will be a noble experiment.

A YEAR OF NO-PARKING For a little more than a year the parking of automobiles in the Loop, the principal business district of Chicago, has been strictly prohibited. When the ordinance was first proposed the Loop merchants opposed it bitterly on the ground that it would mean a loss of business to them. The other day a committee of the Chicago City Council held a public hearing on the no-parking rule with the idea of obtaining suggestions as to whether or not it should be discontinued. No objectors appeared, and the ordinance will continue in effect. In reviewing the operation of the no-parking rule, Charles Gordon, a Chicago traffic expert, says that at present the streets in the Loop impress the casual observer as being almost empty, and yet they are carrying a far greater volume of automobile traffic than before the ordinance went into effect.

By actual count it was found that the number of motor vehicles entering the district in May, 1928, when the ordinance had been in effect several months, was nearly 20 per cent greater than two years earlier, when parking was permitted. The speed of general traffic has been increased from 18 to 33 per cent over that for the oeriod nrinr trapped in Ice." "A gypsy tribe was frozen to death near Lublin, Poland." "Vienna.
