Some of these .aims can be accomplished, and others of them reinforced, by having the kids put in a few hours of honest work in their own households. • * • This, of course, is not a brand* new idea. Shocking as it must seem to the enforcers of the child- labor laws an awful lot of what is good in our country stems directly from the fact that in the past, youngsters were expected to put in long hours of hard work during their tender years. Farmers raised their own hired men right in their own families and at the same time gave the kids a comprehensive course in Agriculture. Tradesmen used their sons as 'apprentices and simult* aneously trained them to be craftsmen. When girls married, they already knew how to keep house because they'd been practicing for years under the super- vison of their mothers. So far as I can see, this system helped more people than it harmed and many an executive today pridefully acknowledges that some ol his success is due to having learned to work as a youngster. * * t times change. Nowadays tfti kids still have plenty to do but it is no longer so necessary iiof so acceptable that they work within the family. Schools have taken over training for life*Wofk and machinery has replaced muscles in farm, kitchen and yard duties. But it is still true that, "a little work never hurt nobody." beep-thinkers in the Child Psychology department seem to agree with this. 1 read A couple of articles lately in which the benefits of household chores for children were highly recoftv mended. In fact, they said it push-button appliances were making work scarce around the house, parents owed it td the youngsters to invent some chores for them! * * * We don't have problems like that around our hcfjse. There are always plenty of chores leering at us from every direction and we haven't had to invent a job yet. The spirit of helpfulness flourishes in our youngsters but a bicycle ride, a telephone call, some forgotten homework is forever side-tracking it. | * « • i The work session al our house last Saturday morning was incited not so much by the parents' ideals of character building as it was by the fact that the place was filthy. I,had put in a great deal of extra tune at my outside job and my household time was pretty much taken up with ironing the wash dry because of the rainy weather. Father was most sympathetic and he lent a hand in his usual manner — by proclaiming firmly Friday evening, 'Tomorrow morning, you kids have to help your mother!" Softened up by the prospects of an extra dime in their allowance, the kids were most eager From their conversation I gathered I wasn't going to have to do a thing all Saturday but lie in bed while the _kids scrubbed, Waxed polished and baked. Mary Ann't first recommended duty was to clean the girls' bedroom. "That's what I always hafta do'*, she said, "why can't it be something more fun like scrubbing the kitchen floor?" • # • I admitted there was logic in her statement—doing the same thing all of the time does get rather drab. "But first you must take all the chairs out of the kit^ chert and sweep the floor", 1 directed. Mary Ann was la little surprised that this -was Jsart of the scrubbing profcels but she complied until sh6 was about half-way done with the sweeping. "I guess I'll clean rny room after all", she said then. I swept and prepared the water for the scrubbing. • * * Meanwhile, Jeanie chose fot hef project, the ordering of the top of the sewing, machine that is the catch-all for the games, school papers 'tmd varied and sundries in our bldroom. It alsc holds the drawers where we keep the buttons. Jean dumped the drawers on the feed and startec throwing out papers. When '. next inspected her labor she had the machine open and was diligently dusting the inside workings. This was all right and it certainly ' needed it. The thing is that the machine hasn't work- for years and I probably won't have occasion to open ft again during my lifetime. "Hey, Mama", Jean said at this point, "do you want to finish this? I'd like to scrub the kitchen floor." • • * When Jean scrubs a kitchen "'v...

Jean ascended to 'the upper regions. I finished the scrubbing, vacuumed the living room while waiting for the floor to dry and applied the wax. * • « * Bill was tidying up the back porch. He does an excellent job at this sort of thing. If anything, he's too neat. .That back porch was built for the express purpose of housing the overshoes, the bows and arrows, the BB guns, the bicycles, roller skates and fishing rods that forjrnerjjyended up in the;—front Hall'^nd'the closets. However, habit is strong and a whole lot of that equipment still gets left in the front hall so as I worked Saturday morning I kept making deposits in the back porch. Mysteriously, the articles made th'eir return, Bill's artistic temperament calls for the clean uncluttered look and if he has anything to say about it, the back porch is going to have it whether or not we can get into the front hall. Any complaints I had about the matter were immediately stifled by Bill's purely voluntary mowingtof the lawn. * * « Household chores are certainly character building and we built character at our house for a full two hours before a meeting of the club-in-the-shack was called and the helpers departed. I had not inspected some of their work and I was a little skeptical of the results because they finished so quickly. "Are you sure you did a good job?", I asked. "I couldn't do it nearly so fast myself." "That's because you don't plan things right, Mama", was the reply. • • • The house looked real slick by Saturday noon. It only took me an hour or so longer than it usually does. We're back in our usual state of casual messiness today but I think somebody or other learned something from the process. Come around next weekend. Then we plan to clean up the basement and give the dog a bath. « * • 1 have noticed some good buys in stewing chickens, either fresh or frozen, in the stores lately.
