. PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COOTIER KEW1 HAL BOYLE COLUMN— Needed--A Magic Potion To Create Good Dreams NEW YORK tfl — Why doesn't some kind-hearted scientist Invent g pill or magic potion to create pleasant dreams? This Is one of (he world's great needs. Life Is such n living nightmare to millions today that they deserve and need pence Iti their sleep. Hut too often the goblins that infest their \vnklng hours hnunt their night minds, too, in even more magnified nnd fearful form. It simply Isn't fnir. The quest for an elixir of yuuth may be doomed to failure, but science ought (o be able to stew up a brew that will nt least keep us young, hnppy nnd free of warts for our eight hours of slumber. If we all could stroll at jn a garden of Eden white asleep, it would be easier (o fnce the troubles of the day. As it is now we often merely close our eye.?, on 'one set of terrors, nnd do/;e f>If only to face nnother set even worse. Consciousness Is ft two-sided coin •—waiting and sleeping — nnd is marked by fantasy in both pedols. A man IKIS some control of his dreams while he is awake. If the boss bawls him out. his rnlnd Immediately creates nil interior drama in which ho himself becomes head of the corporation nnrt the'boss becomes ft Janitor. • Every bum Is a hero In his waking fantasies and wMks his brain 'a king. But once he drowses off his conscience remorselessly tnkes over and makes him a bigger bum. It "Is only a legend that bums hiwe hnppy dreams; they are even shabbier in their nightmares. That is the trouble with dreams asleep: you have no control over them. Only a man with insomnia Can be sure of remaining a hero in his fantasies after midnight. Even dogs and innocent children ire harried by bad dreams. The other night a friend of mine was startled by the crying of his six - year-old daughUA'. When he went to comfort her, she said: "Daddy, I dreamed I was In a boat with two men. 7'ehy were rowing around in the water picking up pieces of paper, and every piece of paper was where a little boy had died." Why should t child have such An Inexplicable nightmare? Presentiments of death and disaster come to all of us nt times and gloom our slumber for no reason that we know. Slcep-\vhlch Shakespeare called the balm of hurt minds and sore nature's bath -then ,is neither bath nor balm, but a cold shower of terror, from which we rouse sweating. Mankind's three most common dreams are these: 1., A shy person finds himself naked in a Jeering crowd. ' 2, You suddenly find yourself ftble. to float, or fly with the great- est of ease. 3. You go along picking up a long row of dimes, quarters and half dollars on a sidewalk, , My trouble Is that I have all these dreams at once. 1 am soar- Ing along witoiit my trousers on vainly reaching down trying to grab coins from the fifdowalk Until all at once I crash-nnd wake up on Ihe floor, poor as ever nnd nursing a bruised elbow. What I want is for .science to come up with a capsule to create a shining world of dream In which no man ia b ti ,sel wa hwr ea ens no man ts bald, he wears n new $150 su wt llliiph sicuoi iiskff oil $150 suit with liis pockets full of gold pieces, all women are fair, poWicinns nre -speechless, "and income Inx collectors intrude only to blow a bugle that announces a blj? refund. Why .should a capsule tike that be harder to than an atom bomb? i \Cruiser Crew Comes to Aid Of Injured Boy r.ONG BEACH.
