Thundoy, October 12, I»61 Alflono (la.) Upper DM Why Supervision? To Whom It Concerns: What next? Seems the children are really involved in the petty differences of us adults. They can't ride their bikes on the sidewalks; it appears the streets, with all its hazards, are safer. They can't run their home made soap box cars down an almost deserted street, because as the Chief of Police stated "The city would be liable in case of injury to one of the boys involved." If that is correct, then why isn't the city liable for any injuries incurred in automobile accidents on the city streets? And to his (and others) second clarification'that an adult group supervise the event; I am against any such proposal. Kids use to play a good game of sand lot baseball, but today with the adult organized Little League, we have genuine frustration be- tween children, officials and the parents I! Why not let the kids learn as most of us did as we youngsters? How many of our parents took an active part in kids play? I am the mother of a boy who looked forward and enjoyed his Saturday of racing. I even enjoyed watching the youngsters 01 mixed ages learning to play together, comparing their derby's and making their rules for the races. The dime entry 'fee was a dime well spent. All my youngsters had a day of fun. So why don't we let the kids alone? Why don't we let them continue in their fun? Other than being a little noisy, it isn't doing %ny harm to anyone. Givenhe kids a chance to grow into better adults than we all seem to be. Another Meddlesome Adult 68th Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Anderson of Clarinda recently celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary.
