By ALLAN It. O. IS. K., M. I). (Copyright. 193(i, NBA Service, Inc.) How would you like to put your child to bed 71 times in one evening? It 'happened Uie other night at Ihe miinluplcls' nursery. Maybe the .story will be no less of n rcvelatiol to you than to me. For you must understand that to an old-fashioned man like myself, reared in the old-fashioned way. some of these modern methods are a revelation. The c'hildren were being put. to bed as usual, at Uie proper hour now aboul 7 o'clock. No effort is made lo get Ihem lo go to sleep but once iti bed, with the understanding that they are to stay there, they usually drop off to sleep wlfa- out any more trouble. On this particular night Emilie had an idea. She wasn't going to sleep. She wasn't even going to slay in bed. So the nurse had scarcely left the room, after tucking away all tile quins, wiicn Emilie was squirming. Ten litlle pink toss came a-wriggling over the edge of the bed, and soon all the rest of Rumored To Be Black Legion Chief 'What If I am?" That was (he answer of Virgil F. Enin|>er, Lima.

Admitting he belonged to the Ku Khix Klan and evincing knowledge of the legion, h'liinser, who resembles :i movie "western sheriff," Is said to have stated that the hitler had 3,000.000 members, talked about "oi-r principles of Americanism and America first," a::d denied statements that the lc;;tcn countenanced murder cr planned to take over the government.

She let herself down to the door. Now Ihe nurse on duty watching Ihroug'n Ihe glass door. • as the nurses always do when Ihey arc out of the room, and it wasn't a minute before she noticed Emilie crawling about gleefully among the beds. Kmilic Is Oclerniincil So the nurse stepped quietly into the nursery, picked up EmilEe without reproach or reproof^ and tucked her back into bed. Bill Emilie was out to show that she was boss this time, and bright eyes looking on wilh interest from the ol'ncr beds undoublcdly spurred her on. Eo in no time at all she was out '*- of bed again and crawling on the 11 floor. Anil in no lime at all the 11 nurse was back. Without saying a .word, quietly but firmly, she had tncked Emilie back where she belonged. ' ; Now if Emilie "had been me, and : Ihc nunse had'been my'falher, and Ihc' lime had been 'about 50 .years ago.'the next scene in this little drama would have been different It would have consisted of a flow of very firm and emphatic language from my fat'ner, accompanied by perhaps a few gestures with the back of a hairbrush. Tucked Back 71 Times But in this case, the next scene was just like the ones before, and Ihc next one was just like that, too until r.ic nurse had tucked Emilia into her bed just 71 limes, and al 1 this without raising her voice or hinting at punishment or even annoyance. Emilie went to sleep then The next night Emilie wasn' quile convinced. She started getting up again. Sixty-five times t'tii nurse put her back that night. Anc 50 times the night after that. Emilie got the idea. Within few nighs she knew it wasn't o any use. And now vv'rien she is put to bed, she stays there, jus like the others. The nnrsss' plan though it took the patience of a Job, seems lo me to be right. Now yon could strike a child I'm second time it got out of bed. am perhaps terrorize it into staying there. That would relieve the wear ami tear on ths parents, but would it teach the child anything except t'nat the parent is a wilful giant "who punisties yon suddenly and angrily when you arc doing something* quite natural, such as getting out of bed? I am inclined to doubt it. Emilie has learned all that was necessary to tcacli her—that u'.ien yon are put to bed you might as well slay there. Xurtcs Always Calm The even temper of our nurses often, amazes me. And that is highly important. H is bad for children, especially very young children, to be excessively affectionate to them one minute and then turn and spank them suddenly in' some Hash of anger. They arc mystified, baffled, hurt. Such tilings, quickly forgotten by the grown-up, may leave permanent traces on the character of very young children. It is surprising to see how careless even intelligent parents arc alxnit choosing someone to look after their children in their absence. It is not uncommon for children (o be reared almost entirely by maids completely untrained In child care. . , You have otlen licard parent.: say. "I don't know why my child uses such bad grammar!' 1 o: "Where could Charlie have picked lip those horrible words?" The answer is usually very sii pie. Children of 2 years are very imitative. The quintuplets are get ting surprisingly clever at trying [o do anything they see the nurses or ens another doing. All children are like that, So what is to be expected when they nish the example they arc so | o \\j • 11 t \ anxious to follow?
