PLEASANT DREAMS!

* By ALICE RICHARDS *

"There's more betwixt Heaven and Earth—"

ADVENTURE certainly covers a lot of territory for such a _small and compact word. It is a category which probably is the only one covering everything that has ever been known to man. It can concern itself with little everyday things all the way up to lion hunting and escaping from prison. It runs down the whole list, backwards and forwards, and no matter how humdrum a thing may appear from the outside to the nonchalant viewer, there is always some part of its working ability which may inspire someone to consider it a topic for adventure, and cause someone else to invest in making it work.

The field of dreams covers everything from abuse to zulu, and even these subjects are divided into different categories.

As for the meaning of dreams, many people are trying to find out how much dreams actually do mean. They may mean much, and on the other hand, they may mean practically nothing. There's also the middle road of dreams which states that dreams mean very little in proportion to their length and all the subjects that they cover, but this is always a fairly safe stand to take.
