Accent On Youth Mom-ism And Dad-ism Gone From The Home? By BILL SCIIUL When did juvenile domination of the home begin? Well, authorities hold that the new autocrat at the breakfast table was enthroned sometime after this century was underway and that he has been extending his sovereignty ever since. Before the era of economic plenty, the family was a closely- knit system, headed by the father as the final authority in the home. The children learned strict discipline at an early age and added their efforts in the family workload. There was very little idle time. With the rapid technological advances, considerable differences were made in standards of living. The tempo of life became highly accelerated and children became bored child-adults without experiencing the age of idealistic adolescence.

Only consumer borrowing' for big ticket items or for housing has been trudging along far more sedately than the business recovery might suggest. Part of the rush of corporations and government agencies to float new issues of bonds and stocks has been due to the relatively low level of interest rates. This has been an administration objective. But it also has been due to a fairly flush supply of investment funds, thanks to increased savings plus the slack demand from consumers and rom business for bank loans. And part of the rush to float securities since March, when the recession was floored for the count, has been due to the expectation that the business recovery will step up total demand for borrowing to the point that interest rates must rise, whether the money managers approve or not. Most of the corporate borrowing has been in recent months, but Federal Reserve Board figures for the first half of 1961 put the total of new issues at ?6.5 billion. This was significantly more than in 1960 when business was pulling in its horns. Also business last year was able to a large degree to live off its own fat. That is, off funds it engendered itself. The First National City Bank of New York notes that in 1960 corporations garnered some $68 billion in cash. The bank economists say that $22 billion of this went for taxes on income and profits, and $14 billion for dividends. But the companies retained $9 billion of their net income, and also had available $23 billion from an increased flow of depreciation allowances. This total of $32 billion available for operations, or new plant and equipment, helped corporations get along without borrowing so much from banks or from the long-term investment market. This availability of cash for corporate use continued marked through the first half of the year. Bankers say this is a major reason that bank loans to business haven't picked up along with the rise in industrial output. Investors have been partial to bond rather than stock issues, because bond yields have been rising, while stock prices have gone up faster than dividend payments, making for lower yields on stocks in general. At the same time they've been issuing long term bonds, corporations have been putting more of their idle cash to work in the short term security markets where interest rates have been relatively high. Former needs which once held a family together became nonexistent. The mother was released from dawn-to-dusk household chores, and lessened was the father's physical drudgery. In their search for larger paychecks ... as material things became the status symbol in this world of plenty ... the fathers relinquished the child-rearing duties and the authority of the home to the mother; he became less dominant and the mother more assertive. Whereas child once had accepted the father's authority without question, the ever-increasing authority of the mother allowed children to meet the father authority with hostility and resistance. Yet, the mother, faced with a role for which she was not fitted physically, tempcrmentally or psychologically, became frustrated and the children, used to being told explicitly what they coukl or could not do, no longer fell secure within well-drawn boundary lines. And the child began to find in the mother-dominatec realm a boundless permissiveness towards which he reacted with confusion. The mother, being true to her original image and fearing the oss of her children's affection ound it to be increasingly diffi cult to deprive her offspring o: Co-Op Group To Hear Freeman KANSAS CITY (AP) - The annual convention of the Consumers Cooperative Association in Kansas City Nov. 28-30 will have Secretary of Agriculture Orville L Freeman as one of its principal speakers.

As a result, children reacted to his flexible discipline with re- jellion and disrespect. As good )ehavior was bought through gifts, over-protectiveness, over - love, over - possessiveness and over- ndulgence, children were forced .o repress normal hostility through the fear of loss of their mother's love, so they grew increasingly hostile towards mother domination and they began to tiate. During this same period, the philosophy came along claiming that children should be allowed to express themselves freely withoul inhibition. This philosophy couplec with the doctrine of permissiveness quickly became abused to the extent of giving in to every childish whim. Discipline and pun ishment were placed in subordin ate positions. Meanwhile, the father, absorbec in the effort to provide as much of the new abundance as his so cial equals, yielded more ant more authority. He went along with the permissiveness and, in stead of being the balancing ford when it was so desperately need ed, he endeavored to become a middle-aged pal to his children in place of the needed strong mas culine force.

Kennedy announced Wednesday that meetings will be held in Chicago, St. Louis, Houston, Nashville, Detroit, Cleveland, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Los Angeles, beginning Nov. 7, to discuss four broad THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, October 5, 1961 topics with civic, local and state 6fficials.
