8~A!§6fta (la.) Upper 5e* Mdift«* Thursday, Au§ust 18, 19SS When we sleep, our bodies relax and we are ;)t rest, but the mind almost never stops working entirely. Our subconscious keep*, digging up things for us to dream about, bume people claim tho> never dream: ethers say tliej dream but they never remembei the next day what the dream W aoout. It seems to me that I do an awful lot of ureai/im,-,, u,, when I'm asleep and when I am awHxe. £>on it.- in uic-m ait pleasant and some of them are terrifying. So, after a particularly luiv.1 nightmare recently, I decided to do a little resetirci: on the subject of dreaming. Remember To Get Your CARNATION Cottage Cheese THIS WEEK-END At Your Grocer's I found that since the dawn of history, Man has tried to understand his dreams and there-s lots of room left for more understanding. In Old Testament dilys. u real good dreamer was in big demand and Joseph made a gooo living out of interpreting his own dnd those of others. Centuries later Sigmund Freud came alomi and he said dreams were caused by suppressed desires. Th" subconsious. according to Freud has a kind of censor in our minds whose function it is to disguise ihe real ideas underlying dreams. Some people claim thai dreams mean nothing more than that you ate too many pickles and knickknacks before retiring. I have always half-way subscribed to this theory but now I find scientists say that indigestion cold, heat or loud noises are merely occasions lo the dream The character and content of the- fantasy still comes from the old subconscious. An article in the August issue of Coronet says that in the past 50 years scientists have at last cracked the code ano 'ound that the language of dreams s as concrete., and meaningful -is the language of waking life. They've even got standard mean- ngs to our ten more common dreams! I looked up three or 'our of my -own most frequent Jreams ancll found that if I'm to relieve the listed meaning. I'm suppressing u lot more desires than I thought I was. * * * The first one is the dream ol nudity. Haven't you dreamed that one too? You're out irt public some place and you discover that you haven't got a stitch on You try to hide but there are lots of people around and you hope they don't notice you,' This dream, says the article, has two possible interpretations. The first is that the dreamer is trying to escape back into the blissful experience of infancy, a period characterized by not having to wear clothes. The other is that the dreamer feels he has something shameful to hide. Neither theory seems to fit my case. I always wore clothes when I was a baby, and though I'm still searching my subsconscious, I don't think I'm hiding anything any more shameful than the next person. t * * More often than I dream of nudity, I dream I'm caught out in public cl«d in just long winter underwear. In this case I'll have to admit the scientists may know what they are talking about. I wore that kind of stuff when I was a kid and though I rsss/s/sssss//r///SMf/ssss/ss^ NOW-IN OUR SHOWROOM-See The Latest In GAS BUILT-IN KITCHENS , separate... • ultra-convenient...

Philips know blnmed well ! don't wnnl 1 to escape back into that, "blissful experience" I certainly was ashamed of my longies when I had to wear them. They were donned with considerable parental persuasion, designed to prevent my frequent sore throats and I rolled them up and hid them from sight at every possible opportunity. I fly a lot in my sleep. I jusl tuck my legs up and go gliding along about three feet from the ground. It's a delightful experience and you should see how quickly 1 get from one place to another this way and my movements are all so smooth and well co-ordinated. Well, I always thought I was a fairly imaginative person but it seems that this, too, is jusl an ordinary run-or- the-mill dream experience. It has a standard meaning, too. It ex presses a magical solution to the feeling of powerlessness in real life. "Flying is an expression of omnipotence which allows us tc triumph in fantasy over those difficulties which beset us ir. reality", the article states. I'rr a little disappointed in this rnun dane interpretation but I wa jven more alarmed over anotht possible meaning to the same dream. It could be that Tm n.i. sure my old man really loves me! » • » Dreaming of falling is another of my recurring ones and I don' axe it much because of that aw ful jerk that wakes me when land. "This dream", says the art. cle, "invades the sleep of peopl who are in a terrible conflic. The conflict very often concern a temptation which their wakin, minds have decided to reject. This could be true in my case The last lime I dreamed this om was the day I was templed lo le Ihe apricot canning go and spen the time just loafing. My walking mind decided to stop being laz; and although I did can Ihe ap ricots I sure was tempted. Therefore, the dream. The article said another possible interprelalion ol dreaming of falling was lhal 1 was "lernpled to fall from the accepted moral standard.", If I get any yens like that, I'm certainly not going to tell about them in this column. • * * Ever since I was little I've been dreaming off and on that rm teeth . were falling out. Hereto fore I've thought it was a reminder to see my dentist every si> months or else, to pay the man what I already owed him. But according to the standard h means that I have self-destructive mpulse. This is not true. The ast thing I'd ever do would pi :o kill myself. • * * Dreaming about money really is dreaming of love, say the ten standard interpretations. Dream- in? of an explosion means feat of blushing. If you dream 01 ferocious animals it means you have a fear of death and driving a car—another Ihing I do well Jr. my sleep—means a sense of adequacy. Sometimes Father does the most repulsive things to me in my dreams and when I wak-. up the next morning, I'm mad a k nim. He never apologizes for the things he does in my dreams, but I do think Ihe leasl he could do is send me flowers afler a parli- cularly bad one! • • • These nocturnal fantasies can gel pretty complicated. I've just about made up my mind to stop dreaming at nighl altogether and confine myself to daydreaming. 1 can control them. And the\ have only one meaning: Stop goldbricking and get to heck put to the kitchen and get supper! • * • Tonight there are five little characters around here that I wish would settle down and do some dreaming. Bill and his friend, David McDonald, Mary Ann, Jean and Marcia Angle are sleeping in two homemade tents in tne back yard. The boys arc scaring the girls with remarks about bugs and ghosts from their tent and the girls, between shrieks of fright and spasms of Biggjes are coming into the house for more refreshments. Father and I are keeping our weathei eyes peeled for signs of rain. It it. comes there'll be a general and frantic exodus to the house. There's something about summer that makes the kids forsake their comfortable beds and go to sleep on the hard ground. I used to love to do so, myself but now I'm at the stuge where a comfortable mattress takes priority over riotous living in the great-out-oi- cloors. • » • I'm enjoying the U.D.M.'s recipe contest and I already havu quite a collection of good ones. The only way I can do my part of the judging is to wait until I'm full of supper so my appetite won't intluence me and to cover up the names of the senders so that friendship won't interfere with justice, either. Keep sending them in. If you haven't been lucky yet, there's always another category coming up. —GRACE.
