Iowa — Parents planning to take the littlest member of the family on vaca tion trips will find that some of the newer baby equipment will take less space in the car, ac cording to Harriet Stevens ,as sistant professor of home economics who teaches child care a< the State University of Iowa, Beds, chairs and pluypens that fold to pack easily are lightweight and versatile und pay back large dividends in the fun and companionship added by taking the littlest one along. With .such devices to keep him comfortable, Baby can go on picnics, on long drives, to the drive-in movies and even on fishing and camping trips. An ice-ches), insulated formula bag or old newspapers will keep his bottle cool, and a <W bottle- warmer will make it warm for his picnic. His usual box basket, bassinet or car-bed can be carried to and from the car and will fit in either the front or back seat. A diaper bag will hold enough diapers, waterproof parrts. a couple of shirts, an extra sweate,- and one or two bottles—if the trip is to be short enough. Miss Stevens points out. "When buying baby equipment in this age of mechanization, don't overlook the ingenious convertible combinations available," Miss Stevens advises. "Safe, lightweight strollers which will serve later as walkers huve a reclining back whicli folds down to make a flat surface into which you can fit a kind of low, padded box. This same box alone will also serve as >a portable car-bed and travel bassinet." Some carriages and car-bed bassinets are built so that the foot-end drops to serve as a child's car seat, after a pair of car-seat hooks have been attached. The body of one type of carriage will lift out and can be used as a car-bed or indoor bassinet. Some strollers convert into chair and table, high-chair, youth chair, or car-seat, or a swing-seat, and a plain table. Also included in the versatile equipment list, Miss Stevens continues, is the playpen which folds for travel. There are some whose floors can be raised or lowered to form either a crib or playpen. The legs of these crib- pens c_n be adjusted to make a car-bed and play area when the baby accompanies you in the autombile. No matter what specific brand or kinds of furniture you use, the basic pieces such as the bed and seats must be firm and offer support, Miss Stevens advises, Seats should' have straps to secure the baby and cribs should have safety catches out of reach of the baby and slats that are wide enough apart for him to see through but not wide enough for him to get his head caught.

His father looked up distractedly. "Oh, we 'll worry about it. It isn 't your concern," he said. Jack looked at him for a moment, then left. A few days later his father overheard Jack telephoning worriedly about a Softball league problem. H i s father asked, what's the problem, son? Can I help?" Jack replied, "Oh, we'll worry about it. It's no concern of yours." Giving the growing child opportunities to help make important decisions and practice responsibility involves many conflicts. Naturally, parents don't want to trouble their children with problems (hat the ohildren cannot directly help solve. Yet many parents fee) that sharing in attempts to solve them la good experience und help* the ohtld feel that he is u responsible member of the family, that he is growing up, und that he deserves an increasing voice in managing his own life, inclucllnl his sf are of the family's life. Deciding what are appropriate concerns for the child is difficult It depends on the parents' own need for privacy, "and on the child's wisdom and discretion For example, some families feel that their high school children have no right to know the detail; of the family income and expenditures, but should know generally what the family's financial status is. Others feel that such children should help decide how family income should be spent. Still others don't want their children concerned at all with questions of finance. The ohild must eventually assume full responsibility for his own adult life. Qlvlng him practice in understanding what such responsibility involves, and in discharging it whilo h.e ig grow- in* up, may moke it wsier for him to handle responsibility when he 1« on hl« own, MOTOR MAIDS Get'Tough Policy Puts Safety Across By Jeanne Smith, Dodge Safety Consultant STRICT ENFORCEMENT of traffic laws can c\jt accidents in half.

The seoond part of Chief Kir•wan 's program is a system of education for both adults and children. He regularly visits churches, civic groups and fraternal organizations to show safety films, supplemented with large photographs of the year's worst accidents. Explaining to his audiences how these accidents occurred, he also tells how they could have been avoided. The school program in Medford is a rigorous one, starting fro** kindergarten, with lee- t«ff «*t *W »«S and ?»s»y con. tests (Wred to, the various age groups. A large green pennant is given to each school, designating that no child has been injured. When an accident occurs, the flag is removed, "The children wcjrk hard," says Chief Kirwan, "to keep that flag fly- Jfedfqrd/a twofold, safety program has jndeed been the answer to a serious problem. This is evidenced by an award of merit given to the city by the National Safety Council this year for outstanding Improvement in Its accident record.
