National Coliori Week Mary Haworth's Mail Editor'« NotM Happily murrlod «ec- ond Lime, mother asks how .to explain to chi:d ol flrct mairlttgo that iathcr is Jnmate of mental hospital. DEAR. 'MARY HAWORTH: Six He last saw our child when, she Craig at Tiis proper significance, and yet' keep Jaith with' the spirit of truth, is to ring in a story-hour by announcing that tonight you'll tell the story of why Jane has three sets of grandparents, when most children only 'have two. The story might run: Once upon a time, when you were young, you got married and you were going to have a baby—the baby was Jane— but before she was born, the daddy went away, because he ielt too sick, to work aU day and take care of a family. So he went to a judge, and the judge said, "Sir, you're excused from being married," and then he went to a hospital -and there he stayed, trying to get well. And he is still in the hospital, but he may get well some day, • , Say that he is Grandmother Doe's son, and she thinks-he might come home pretty soon; but anyway, after Jane was bom, along came this other daddy, the one we've got now. Of course, at Uiat time he wasn't our daddv yet; but he said to himself, that's the little girl I want and I'll take, her Mommie, too, and both of us will take care of her. Accent Treasure, Not Old Tragedy Ilijai/C" iittii«uui What are the chances of her developing attitudes of "You're not my real father" towards Jim, when things are somewhat explained? And In the event Craig: doesn't wish to see her, is it likely that she will glorify him in her imagination?- I am greatly worried about the whole tiling, realizing that a poor presentation may have a very bod effect upon hw; so'please help me. C. S. Translate "History" Into Bedtime Story DEAR'C. S.: Since Jim is Jane's father to all intents and purposes, a conviction on Jane's part, that shouldn't be clouded, by anxious detailed instruction to the contrary, it seems to me the way to introduce ings about the lightness or solidarity of existing family ties. Notice the emphasis is .on Jane's emotional treasure. Keep .it that way; and keep the story sketchy. Don't labor details; parry- close questions, 11 any, with cheery vagueness. Enough said for now; so deftly switch to other favorite topics or play activities, and you will have prepared Jane for good psychological reactions to future developments in re Craig—and more exact explanations in later years.

Cranes but .he was in debt, and seriously needed $200, "I have 1% acres of land about 10 miles east of Gary, Indiana, with a.4-room house on it," he said, "But I cannot borrow any money, for the bankers there say they will not lend such a - small sum, although my is worth 51 ' 500 - weat to several loan agencies . ^ y ^.^ w(Juld 005t; . "Dr. Crane, I wish, you'd give me a thorough physical examina'tion," lie said as he slumped down into a chair. "I'm all in. Ten years ago I was pronounced a diabetic.

I can hardly drag myself around, and I'm not averaging $12-per week in commissions. , • Fear's Toll "So Dr.' Crane, -couM you give me a thorough examination today?" .Hugo certainly looked dejected and somewhat disheveled. He had g:ycn up, for he wns almost reconciled to the fact that death was 'just around the corner. Without a knowledge of medicine, one might have been tempted to agree- with Hugo.

These are' excessive 'hunger, exaggerated thirst .or polyuria. His. pulse and respiration were normal. "I'll run a bloTid sugar and urta- alysis on you," I finally' agreed, "but I am convinced that your trouble is not' with your pancreas but with your mind. "You don't have, a single symptom of diabetes now, and will doubtless live to a ripe old age if you arc temperate in your eating." , Defeatism and Frustration Then I began some psychological probing and found that Hugo not only was barely earning enough to pay for' a cheap room and meals. $50 to appraise the place and arrange for the loan, and they refused to put me to that expense for, such a small loan. "One 'Of the heads of the PHA told me it would "mean only $8 to him if he put the loan through, and it wasn't worth it. "Dr. Crane, where can a man go to borrow money when he has real estate that is admittedly valuable? My place is free from all encumbrances," Otir Financial Paradox It isn't my purpose todya to dwell upon the financial paradox of banks with money to lend, and modest wage earners who sorely need small j loans. The point of my column 'today is that when I reassured Hugo that j his trouble was not organic, andj told him to come back next week i when I'd try to ''put him in touch with a person who would take n mortgage on his real estate, hej perked up imediately. j The very next Saturday he re-1 turned, with "liis chin up, and full! ol pep. He had earned $47 in com-| missions that week, and felt like I a winner though I hadn't given him any medicine at all. The mind thus exerts a powerful influence for health as well as for happiness.
