intkej/ems Affection Is Best Medicine By DAVIT) TAYLOR MARKE AP Newsfcature Writer If parents' give their children what they need emotionally as well as physically, there Is no need to be fearful about how they will grow up. Dr, Frank E. Coburn, associate professor of psychiatry at the Unt vcrsity of Iowa, gave this advice to parents of children attending a speech clinic there. Dr. Coburn explained that children have a tendency to grow up healthy mentally as well as physi cally, pointing out: "We need not be fearful over those physical illnesses which we can control by inoculation, proper diet, sleep and clothing. Some physical illnesses such as certain Infections we cannot prevent, but there is no use to disturb our lives about them. The thing to do is get adequate treatment." Parents need to meet their children's needs for love, affection, t o 1 e r a nee, understanding, discipline, a chance to express their resentment and the opportunity to grow up and become independent of their parents, Dr. Coburn said. He explained: "Almost all parents love their children, but some parents do not get this fact across to them. It is important that the child know he is loved by his parents. major verbal contact with .his parents should not be during criticism only. Praise Children "We need to go out of our way to praise our children when they do well. Sometimes we can set up tasks for the child to do for which praise can be given easily, but we should remember not to expect adult achievement." Discipline can actually be an expression of parental affection, Dr. Coburn said, since setting limits on the child's behavior makes him feel more comfortable and secure. It is important to ask of children only what is really necessary and then be consistent in seeing that it is carried out, he said. Punishment, when n e ce s s a r y, should fit the "crime," he continued, and should be of short enough duration that the child is reassured promptly that he is still loved. Dr. Coburn advised parents to avoid condemning their child's personality, but explained that it is all right to find fault with a specific element in the child's behavior. He said: "To tell the child he is 'bad' gives him no guide for improvement, but criticism of specific behavior suggests something specific for him to do about it/' Though every child probably hates his parents at times, this docs not mean that he fails to love them deeply. The parent should be big enough to let his children express some of this natural resentment. Dr. Coburn said. He explained: "Actually we're making little liars and hypocrites ,out of them if we make them behave 'nicey nice' to us when they feel 'nasty nasty'." To be sure that children will become independent adults, parents gradually must give them more and 1 more responsibility, The Daily Register-Mail, Galesburg, 111. Tuesday, Octbber 6V ' ?

Dorft Belittle Your Assets By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Party days are here again. And that, as every teen-ager knows, can mean multlgrooming problems. But the wise teen-ager also knows that it need not. In grooming yourself for a big fall event, reme^nber that the successful guest is the one who fits easily into the group. To merit favorable comments from both the boys and girls, act your years and dress according to them; in other words, be yourself. You know you are no slinky siren. Then why beg for permission to buy a black satin sheath? You'll look ridiculous, not glamorous. You teen-agers have a wonderful, bright, clear-eyed expression that adults envy. Why try to trade it in for the phony mystery concocted of heavy applications of eyebrow pencil, shadow and mascara? Why not accent what you do have? Women spend fortunes trying to recapture the smooth skin, clear' eyes, shining hair and gentle curves they squandered in their youth. Make the most of them while you can. NYLON AND WOOL . . .

Pleats won't sit out, they say. withdrawing parental supervision as rapidly as the child is able to demonstrate good judgment. By DOROTHY ROE Associated Press Fashion Editor The modern Alice can step through the looking glass of most any department store door these days, and find herself in a fabric wonderland that would have baffled even her adventurous ancestor. The time has passed when a girl simply selected a dress in cotton, silk, wool or linen, usually being governed by the season. Today she is confronted by a bewildering array of man-made fibers and blends difficult for even a fabric buyer to remember. These are fabrics handsome to look at as a rule, each promising some special advantage over the old-fashioned natural fibers. Some look like wool but the makers say they are washable. Others have special wrinkle-resistant ' properties. Some claim to retain their pleats through repeated cleanings or launderings, with little or no ironing. Others are notable for long wear, resistance to moths, non-shrink qualities and so on. With the growing number of so called "wonder" fabrics on the market, it's increasingly important to read fabric labels carefully and get from the sales person exact directions for care of the garment If you follow the manufacturer's directions carefully, you'll probably find many of the new fabrics save cleaning bills and pressing time, and retain their good looks! for a satisfying time. /V.

Transition to High School Ways Should Be brachial After one week as a seventh grader in a public junior high, a 12-year-old said to her mother: "Almost all the girls wear lipstick. And a lot of them wear earrings. And I've just got to learn to dance because we are going to have dances for our school parties this fetr. Isn't it time we took a good, long look at our junior high schools, and the pressure they are putting on our children to jump to adults practically overnight? Back in the days when schools were divided into eight years of grade school and four years of high school, the jump was made two years later. Now with our 6-3-3 system our children jump from the sixth grade into a set-up that is in no way a continuation of what they have known, but an absurd copy of high school. We've got junior high schools all over the country and we are stuck with the system. But why can 't we, as parents, get together with the junior high faculty members in our own communities and try to make the change from elementary school to junior high a more gradual process? Don't Let Children Be Pushed It isn't wholesome to let our children be pushed into adult ways when they are actually only children. Nor is it a happy solution for a few parents to try to fight the problem alone. The only way that we can See to it that our children are allowed to enjoy childhood as long as they should is to make up our minds that we parents have to get together, take a stand and ask that our junior higb principals and teachers to back us up. As parents we ought to be able to meet our children's "but all the other kids do such-and-such" with "we parents have gotten together and decided . . ."

Of course you won't wash your Got Sniffles? Keep Groomed By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Some girls seem to think that the sympathy people extend to cold sufferers implies an invitation to neglect their grooming. If one is well enough to appear in public, she should be able to maintain her appearance. Going around the office with a woebegone face will endear no one to her co-workers. It just about amounts to lack of consideration for others. Among the things you can do should sniffles come your way is to pat a rich lubricating cream around your nose. Nightly ap hair, but you can give it extra brushing and,use a dry shampoo or witch hazel on cotton pads. To ward off that wan look try using a speck more rouge and eye make-up. And be careful of your facial tissues. It's not only unpleasant to the eye but it's unsanitary to scatter half-used tissues about your desk. Put a small paper bag next to the tissue box for used tissues and keep the half- used ones on your person.

GRIFFIN Phone 5426-6 919 Irown Ave. By Charles A. Fach There's nothing more important to picture-taking than the right film ... so we figure we can't say too much about the types of films you need for different photographic purposes. You need to know more about film than the right size, especially with the color film that's so perfect for shots at tills time of year. The orthochromatic films, such as Verichrome, are highly sensitive to blue, green and yellow colors but are not sensitive to deep orange or red. As a result, all red objects pictured with orthochromatic film will turn out black in the print. Other objects containing some red will turn out darker than they appear to the eye. The panchromatic films, represented by Super XX, Plus X, and others, are equally sensitive to all colors. This doesn't mean that one type of film is better than the other for all purposes. Ortho­ chromatic film is desirable for landscapes because of its sensitivity to blues and greens. Panchromatic film is better when orange and red coloring is being pictured. And in portrait work, panchromatic film is batter for women in order to keep lipstick and rouge from printing too dark. Orthochromatic film is preferred for men, if a "manly" look Is wanted. So let your picture subjects determine the kind of film. Remember, too, that "Pap" films are faster when exposed by artificial light, so use these for your flash pictures.
