MARGON AND WHITE SALTfWATER BUBBLES The other night in a dream I found myself aboard my own sailing ship, log- ging the impossible speed of forty knots. We were running before a gale with the wind fair astern on a pitch black night. Tearing along at this speed, we came to a crashing, sudden stop. The ship piled itself upon a reef, reared itself. backed off, and settled by the bow. All hands jumped for their lives, but I was some- how rooted to the quarterdeck. With the water swirling around me, I was quickly pulled under. The wreck settled gently on the bottom: to my great surprise I found that I could breathe easily. I walked the deck to the battered bow, stepped off, and floated gently to the sea floor. After exploring my immediate surroundings, I was walking back to the wreck, when a gigantic shape loomed out of the shadows, slowly taking the form of a fish. And what a fish it was! If you can imagine a fish, a cross between a whale and an angel fish, you will have a good idea of what this one looked like. lt had the monstrous shape of a whale, with the beautifully colored fins of an angel fish. He swam slowly toward me with wide, sad. staring eyes. looking me up and down. and working his mouth as though ready to cry. As I gaped at him. he took a sobbing breath, which greatly resembled a well known fog horn. Speaking perfect English between rasp- ing sobs, he asked me to help him find his way home. He went on, after a great crying spell, during which he took an immense red bandana handkerchief from behind his left fin, wiped his eyes, and blew his nose violently, making his nose a delicate pink. He told me that he was the youngest member of his family and had wandered away and was lost- as I could plainly see. My sympathy was aroused for the "little fellow", and I told him that I would do my best to help him find his home. As I was a total stranger in this place, I hadn't the faintest idea where his home was located, and was sorry I said I should help him. Not knowing his own name, I dubbed him "Sunshine". Why I Page One Hundred and Thirty-four chose this awful name I can never say: but Sunshine it was, whether he liked it or not. Having the greatest confidence in me, Sunshine tagged slowly at my heels, while I led him in the direction which was the easiest for me to walk in. As I proceeded along the sand, plants on the sea floor grew larger and higher, the farther I walk- ed. Ahead appeared an indistinct, dark mass of shrubs. The plants along the trail were now about one hundred feet high and were made up in very beautiful and strange designs. Merry Sunshine, who had now stopped his blubbering, and wore a wide-reaching grin, much more be- fitting his new name, took occasional, deep drawn sniffs, and bit off large pieces of the plants, which he chewed with an ex- tremely loud crunching noise. This crunching filled the vacant silence abund- antly, but I was sorry to see him eating the plants. The dark shadows ahead gradually be- came more distinct until I made out sea- floor growth, the same as that through which we were walking, grown to a height of two or three hundred feet. Sun- shine seemed quite natural in these sur- roundings, but I seemed less than a pig- my in a strange world of giants. As we approached the entrance. there seemed to be no life within, Sunshine. speaking for the first time since we left the wreck, asked me where we were. Not having the slightest idea myself I couldn't answer him, and said that I didn't know. As we approached the only visible open- ing in the mass of brush, a snail crept out from behind a leaf and squinted at us through sleepy eyes. He was fully six feet tall and was a shiny black all over with two white horns. He greeted us with a lazy, drawling, "Hullo", and ambled slowly past us. Turning a corner around a tall stem of bush. I stepped into a wonderland un- der the sea. A village was spread out be- fore me. Houses of corral and shells that glittered in the dim light. and paths of flat shells greeted my eyes. Here and there stood huge corral houses NINETEEN THIRTY-THREE
