RITH MILLETT By RUTH MILL N E A Staff W r ET T i ttr Children's Manners Reflect Those Displayed by Parents The tendency of American children to remain seated on busses and street cars while older people are standing is a symptom of lack of respect for their elders, Dr. Edwin Ackerknecht recently told a Northwestern University conference on "Problems of an Aging Population." If you've recently ridden on a bus carrying a number of school kids you will probably be inclined to agree with that statement. But how can we expect our children to show any respect in public for older people if we don't demand such respect from them at home ? All too often teen-age Susie is allowed to sprawl all over the most comfortable chair in the living room while her mother entertains guests. All too often Junior gets by with stalking through the living room without even bothering to speak to his parents, friends as he goes by. Home Teaching Is Slack In too many homes, boys aren't taught to seat their mother at the dinner table, to carry heavy loads for her. to offer her a chair when she comes into a room, to jump to their feet to meet adult guests and perform other courtesies. In too many homes children and teen^agei's aie allowed to monopo­ lize the telephone, the family car, dictate the choice of television and radio programs and refer to any grownup in a position of authority in derisive terms. The place for children to learn respect for adults is at home. If they don't treat their parents, their grandparents, the adults in their own neighborhood and their parents' friends "ith special courtesy—they will develop a disrespect for all older people. 5 Years Ago Today With tomorrow midnight the deadline for getting liquor and beer licenses, the city, this morning had collected $20,600, as payment for 10 liquor licenses at .TIOOO each, 4 beer licenses at $400, and two $500 liquor and beer permits to clubs. S. A. Changnon, J-., 18, has enlisted in the U. S. Marine Air Corps and left this week to begin his training at Paris Island, S. C.

INC T M. «tO U. ». MT. Vt. _ XXXV f TOLD what had happened at Larry Stone 's apartment. Inspector Merica made a deprecating face. "Now you're insulting ipy intelligence, Marshall! Even a guy that 's been creased on the head would be able to spot the skull fracture Stone died of." I half-rose out of my chair. "Stone had no skull fracture when Sonya and I left him! If he did have one when he was found, neither Nanabarro nor Lou is responsible for his death! Someone else got in there, deliberately took advantage of his condition and murdered him!" "There you go again, talking about people getting in and out of the Brentwood Arms without the clerk seeing them." "There's a service entrance to the place!" "And it's kept locked at night. Try again, Marshall!" "Well, that's the way Al Nana­ barro and his lieutenant got In! Ask Sonya. Ask them!" "I will. I've already sent for Nanabarro and Lou Brisso." I knew they weren't the type to admit even assault and battery. Sonya's testimony and mine woyld sound sour in view of the fact that nobbdy had seen the night club manager and his lieutenant enter the Brentwood Arms. "Mind telling me who found Stone?" I asked. "Not at all. Your friend Smiley Wetlauffer found him. Does that answer your question?" "Not quite. I saw Wetlauffer and a girl enter La JoUa Qub earlier in the evening. The girl was Clara Mayhew, receptionist at the Prater offices." "Sure. She was with Smiley when he decided to call on Larry Stone. They were pals. He and the girl are in the next room signing statamaats now." Merica^ frowned his impatience His phone rang. He answered it listened and said: "Send them right up." He put down the phone and looked at me. "Now we'll get to hear what Nanabarro and Brisso have to say about it." • • • \ FEW minutes later a patrol^ man ushered in the night club man and his aide. Both regarded me with fleeting glances; neither betrayed a sign of recognition They denied everything, of course "I've never been in Stone's apartment in my life! As a matter of fact, I don't even know where he lives!" Nanabarro said. "Get Sonya in here!" I told Merica. "She'll back me up!" Merica grinned. "Maybe she would at that! You two have been pretty cozy lately, haven 't you, Marshall?" He turned to Nana­ barro. "Got an alibi for tonight?" Nanabarro nodded. "Ask any of the help at my place. They'll tell you Lou and I've been in the office all evening." "A fat alibi," I scoffed. "Any of those punks out there would back up Nanabarro for an extra ten in his pay check!" Merica eyed me coldly. "Tell that to the jury that tries you for the murder of Larry Stone. That's what I'm holding you tot. That and falsifying and tampering with the evidence in the murder of Rose Bidault. It may interest you to know that Carl Prater is across the hall swearing out an affidavit for Andy Tanner at this moment!" "You're kidding, Merica. Prater's in the hospital." "He was, but he has been released. He had only a mild heart attack after your assault on him. Tanner's fixing up an assault and battery charge and an assault with a deadly weapon charge for that little session. Add breaking and entering the Prater offices and as­ sault upon Wertheim, and ytm have quite a package. Star Williams will certainly have his hands full defending you— if he has any time off from defending himself!" "Somebody mention my name?" We all turned at the sound of the voice from the doorway. Star stood there. Tlie patrolman at the door stood docile as Star shoved open the door wider to permit the entry of two other' men. They were th« two Valleyville morticians, Esplin and Brayton. They entered sheepishly, giving me barely any recognition. "What's the idea?" Merica thundered. "Who are these d»en, anyway?" Star produced a folded paper from his inside coat pocket with a flourish. "These gentlemen have just signed this affidavit. I think it would profit you to read it before proceeding further with charges against my valued assistant." • • • •jyCERICA picked up the paperJ unfolded it and began to read.] His expression tightened progressively; when he had finished ha eyed Brayton and Esplin and demanded: "Did you men sign this alB- davit?" They nodded. "Yes, sir, we did." Merica placed the affidavit tm his desk and eyed Star, who f < • garded him amusedly. ; "I'll concede that this places aa ' • entirely different light on whathaa ! „ happened. I'll get Wertheim ia' " here, also Prater. Prater is with . Andy Tanner. Any objectiont if I bring in Tanner, too?" "As a matter of fact, whila ' you're at it, I suggest that yotc r bring in all the parties concerned. Including Madam Sonya Sareeta." All the while. Star didn 't give ma a look at the affidavit. ; Merica started to say he didat mind a bit; then he saw the gria ' on my face and demanded: "Wby ^< do you want that magician itim in here?" 'I "So I can complete my' caia „ against the murderer of Bumfft )f,^ Bidault," said Star Williana. ;
