JORDAN, M.D. Vvritton for NEA Service Parents often feel a keen sense I of responsibility for the child who : i.s relarded or handicapped mentally. Of course, such a situation is tragic, but il must he faced and. to face it properly one needs lo understand the problem. The mental development of children at different ages can be measured by fairly reliable tests. The common term for the results of these tests is the "I. Q." which stands for intelligence quotient, a measure of the child's to learn ralher Hum what the child actually knows. The "I. Q." is figured by dividing the menial age as calculated by one of the intelligence tesls in common use by the actual age ol the child in years, and multiplying the result by 100. Thus if a 6- ycar-old child has a mental age of :j, the intelligent quotient would be expressed as 50. Tests have Some Value Although parents arc often inclined to pay too much attention to the "I. Q." of their children, these tests do have some real value. If the "I. Q." is way below normal, the child must be considered a true icliol and cannot be educated in school subjects; such children require care in an institution. The next lowest group are imbeciles who can learn to perform simple household duties but do not go far in school subjects. Above these Iwo low groups are the less seriously retarded children who can often be taught to learn to support themselves in simple occupations, but are not likely to go beyond the elementary grades of school. It is not possibles to drill or train a youngster with a low "I. Q.'' into a definitely higher group. This may be a hard thing for parents to realise, but il should be faced. There is, however, some experimental work going on with a substance called glutamic acid and its effect on the intelligence. This substance appears to raise the intelligence as measured by the "I. Q.' 1 slightly. However, it must be emphasized thai the results are not extraordinary and as yet in- E. John- conclusive.

Sick'With Boredom If you will notice, the men who retire from business seldom live but a few years. The reason for this is that having nothing else lo do, they become hypochondriacs. They fancy they can't eat this and can't eat that. They get hipped on :he idea that they can't do this anrl they can't do thai. Having nothing interesting to do. they do nothing but brocKl and end up by boring themselves to death.

Dewey called today lur federal aid to stales for housing on "a realistic, practical basis" whenever such aid is needed "to get. action." Declaring "we are up against a gigantic housing deficit." Ihe Republican presidential nominee also urged the clearing of the nation's slum areas. "We will not be satisfied." he sa>d, "until the curse of slums find tenements is lifted from every American family and every American child." The New York governor's remarks were in a speech prepared l'i:r delivery (at 4 p. m., KST) at ground-breaking ceremonies for the Alfred E. Srnilh housing project in New York City. Dewey spent last night at his farm home in Pawling. N. Y.. between Albany and New York City. la his New York speech Dewey j said: I "This year the builders of Amer- |ica are building as never before, 1 and the total may reach as many 'as a million now houses. That is good. But it is not nearly good enough. "As many as a million and a half of our veterans and their families have had to double up with other jiiniilies or live in rooming hoii.se>. 'Another million and a half of our families have had to do Ihe same. OCX" lie said that lo solve the prob- hrnd to the states to encourage programs of community improve- ] ment and development. "When federal aid is required to get action, then that aid must, be provided — on a realistic, practical basis," the governor declared. Dewey did not mention the Taft- Ellcnder-Wagner long-range housing bill which was shelved in the last session of Congress. But in calling lor slum clearance and federal aid to states under some cir- i ciunstances he lacitly endorsed co tain provisions of that measure. Mr. Truman repeatedly has called for enactment of the bill. Dewey paid tribute to the Republican-controlled 80th Congress for the housing research provisions of a limited housing bill it did pass.

Some days later he is on duty in the square with his friend, Andres, when he sees her again. Andres greets her warmly as Carmen, but her glances are all for Jose. Shortly afterwards, Carmen gets into a street brawl with another woman and knifes her. Jose, ordered to take her prisoner, lets her escape. As a result, he gets extra guard duty and is confined to barracks for 30 days. On the last night of his extra duty, he is amazed to see Carmen attend a party at the colonel's house. She 'turns his questions aside, hints he meet her at Lillas Pastia's. But at the tavern, Jose discovers a drunk and grieving Andres also wailing for Carmen. Disgusted, he suggests they both leave. An old gypsy woman tells Carmen the cards predict love and death. A British De Hnviland "Swallow" jet plane like this is reported the lirst jet plane to fly faster than sound travels.

Bonfires had been lighted all across the .square, but the singers stood in a circle behind the main lire chipping their hands in the steady. insistent flamenco rhythm as they sang. A peg-legged gypsy man was doing a comic but skillful dance to the clapping, singing and shouting encouragement of his audience which added its own barbaric rhythm to the steady swelling of guitars. As the peg-legged one leaped and turned. : his shadow was thrown into the i laces of the singers, distorting the | dance grotesquely. Presently. he was joined by a "fat gypsy woman shrilling at the top of her lungs a whining and wailing flamenco chant as she advanced crab- lashio:i in tiny side steps which exactly matche'd the rhythm of the clapping. TSie woman had an iula.it slung in a : ;orl of scarl'-haminoe.!-: from lu-r shoulder. Its dark little face peered out w;lh bright beads ol Lyes. The fat woman i:.Mu>red the | child completely at she flung her i bixiv aboul in a lumbering faster and faster until the fat, infant-laden woman could no longer keep up. As she waddled from the fire circle, the malt- dancers started another rhythm, provocative and alluring, their laughing faces turned to Carmen. They beckoned her to join them. I Carmen shook her head as though i to say their dancing was not yoi"! enough to lure her out from the crowd, her eyes darting meanwhile from face to face around the lire- circle. Suddenly she seemed to have found that which she ;;uu;ihl and across her face went a slow. Iriun.pliant smile. Slowly. Carmen rose. She stood up straight as an arrow.
