"Yes, ma'am," Ronald said re- sncctfully. "I think I'd better." He went out and Mrs. Canning lifted dh-jiKjulsltory eyebrow at her daughter. "What on earth is -the matter with Ihem?" she demanded.

(To Be Continued] tHE FAMILY DOCTOR Aged .Should Gracef idly Accept Their Physical and Mental Limitations UY l)l(. illOKKIS The number of clci pecplb is constantly increasing. Whereas less than 3 per cent were over 05 in 1830, almost 8 per cent are over 05 years ot age today. The -Increasing number of llic aged has raised many an economic nnd social jircblem, chiefly, cf course, .the. economic problem. Tiie (Hicstion of who is to support them when -they tirecme unable t-j take care of themselves has given rise lo Ihe Townseml plan, tlie Thirty- Dollais-tevcry-Tliursdiij plan and to some extent for (lie Social Security. The dpclor and I he s:ci,il wcrker are also seriously concerned with the special problems of tlie aged: First «ilh irying ( 0 lit them suitably into the life of the h:me, and second, will taking care of tlielr health. The problem of the health of (he aged is a very special problem indeed. One social worker has asked why aged adults live with their children. Certainly (his Is not cnly for financial reasons because they live wllh the children whether rich or poor. Of course, the tradition that Ihe children shall lake care cf tlie aged has conic down lo us fr;(n inaiiy centuries. Nevertheless in iiiahy In- .ilnnrrs parents and the children notild both be much happier if they lived anurt and if Ihe responsibility of (Ire child included (mania! pr:vision without dictation, rest- cssncss. disrespect cr annoyance. The problem of the aged in the home depend on the fact that they ire not. ot ccurse, lully -efficient :hyatcally. Aged people slow in> both mentally and physical!,?. A Jew, however. cann:t accustom inciHrclYC5 to nge, and show constant activity, attempting t? attend i.o nil sorts of affairs. Because of tlielr physical and mental li>com- petenee they oflcn brinj ab:ul considerable damage.
