And now she has prepared i guiding set of rules for parents which tell how you may decide i: jour child is normal, and also has' yon may keep him that way. Mrs. Pearl Greenberg. a sltiden of Dr. Buhler's who assisted In U: translation of her recent book By HELEN WELSHI.MER NEA 'Service Writer NEW YORK.--Whoever said that we're never too old to learn ap- liears to have made a mistake. Sometimes, after the age of six months, the time limit is passed Mary may already have become n \vall-tlo\ver and Johnny may never learn not to be afraid to fight the boys in the alley after school! And it won't be Johnny a n d Mary's fault. The blame Is on the thoulclers of their parents who neglected their social life when Ihey were six and seven and eight months old. • Dr. Charlotte Buhler, professor of child psychology at the University of Vienna, has been studying all the stages of Infancy for years and years. Hundreds of infants and older children are brought to her "The First Year of Life," is ia millnr with the noted psycholo gist's views. "A child must have relations wit! otheis, although lie is only i\ tei years old/' Mis. Grccnberg say: "II he doesn't he will develop shy ness. If he is going to be comfort able with other children, he ha lo play with them from the vcr beginning." Social Graces Learned! When -Mary and Johnny hay their firsl birthday parties the aren't supposed to hide behind tho door. Social contact will be an old .lory by then. . 13on't leave your few months old child lying in Its crib and breath: a slgli'of lelief because he requires ;o little attention. You'll !x> sorry If yon do, perhaps, when you try to teach him the meaning of the family language. "If a child Isn't talked to, he doesn't eel "the proper vowel sounds. H will be more ililllcul< for him lo learn lo sneak than it have been 11 he had received conversational attention," Mrs. Grcenbcrg explained. Also, wntch the toys you give your child. First toys should he simple," tin' child psychologist 1ms learned. "They must be Hie type that can be handled easily. They should be bright and attractive In color. A variety should be n-:ed. How- eves, an infant should not lie ovcr- stimulalcd by being given too many toys at one time." For here again. Mary and John- nle v.-ill pay the price In the tu|urr- when they begin to want entirely too many beads and biacelcts. and roadsters. Needs Normal Hurksrouml "The child is a product ol 111? environment and heredity," rcenberu believe.*, as does Ur. uhlcr. "The first year he nnisi ave n normal healthy background, t he is nc;lcctcil miring Ihc thst welvc-month period Ills dcvclop- icnt may be retarded." However, you can make a child crvcus, far more nervous.than he lakes you, it you don't show some wise about, yeiir relation with him. Je calm, be considerate, be jn- erested. For there's wisdom in ;he mind of a two and three and four nonths old younjsler, even if he doesn't know it. As the hundreds and thousands of infants enter the laboralories oi Or. liulil«r for otscvrallon (uu experimentation, she has come tc learu certain Important facts aboul the fire! year of life. II is no longer necessary to wai rnUU a child cnes to school to know it he is capable of leariv>i._ his AUC'c and locating Madrh and Peking on the map. A few simple rules of observa lion will tell you if he or she wi have a chance at the prcsidenc some day. Here are a lew of the norma observations as Dr. Buhler an Mrs. Greenbera see them. When a child is two months o', he should bo able to hold his iiea up when plac;d In a prone i»s lion. He should-.be able -to focus h eyes on a moving, shiny object, return tho glance of the adult, an to show by his reactions (hat ho distinguishes between Ihc adult's natural and growling tones loud. It proves their lunij:; aie strongl • If n child has a goal Inherited body, lie will hold his body straight?!- nnd walk sooner Mian liie youngster who hasn't. There is an hniiortant turning uoint at the tsuih monlli. Here nre a few of the things which the normal child will do: Turn ills hci-.d towards a sound. Or if he doesn't his hearing or his mentality may b; deficient. Move his arms across fnce restlessly when he wakens. Olve way lo teavs, frowns, tlelit shutting of the eyes, and inbbli'ij of the face against Ihc pillow when angry. Don't boast of your child's sweet disposition, unless you are sure thai he- can show a Hide spunk when (he world doesn't suit him. Open his mouth after removal of food if not salislled, Hold his I'.ead up when lying ' on his stomach. Stretch his leg.', arms, fingers, niul tongue. Move In one direction and back again. Handle static objects. Then, loo, don't be contented it the child is quiet. You'll know hi normal If he makes a noise. Ha- ir. Sven Hedin to Get Medal for Exposition STOCKHOLM, (UP)—Dr. Sven tcillii, the explorer ot Tibet and kntjolta, Is expected back In wcdon next spilng, according to rtvlccs from Peking, wlicrc Dr. ledin Is now busy preparing the tuts collected In conjunction, \\llh hlnese scholars oil his latest ex- wlition.

N. Y., <Ul')- -Af- tual crying, sounds of astonish ent. repetition of his own oriijl- al code of .sounds, sighing, groin ig and enjoyment during move icnt, all point hi Ihe right direc on. 'All Actions Have Meaning Notice, too, it your ten month Id child rubs his eyfs, oisv:i; h' yes widely when crying, become il-miniorcd when n person, once, cen, goes away, Is comforted by aresses, and supports his body on us hands when lying on his stom- eh, as he grows stronger. None of these, or dozens o other actions, arc aimless. They arc all purl of Infant development. It's a wise parent who knows the future of his own 'child. And a little observation will help him wonderfully In his basis. "We believe Ihal we can . see whether a child lias normal mentality." Mrs. Grci/uberg said. "The whole public Is becoming chik 1 conscious. We do not say that a child is not normal if lie does, or does not, do this, but our observations have taught us that If a child responds in the manner which .we have described, he Is normal. So don't wall'until Mary and Johnny counl their ages by years Get busy while they still deal with months, if you want to train them in tlic way they should go! Don't worry il they cry too Icr live years of living alone, n wo- who prefers lo withhold her :nme is advertising for n "com- iwnlon" liusbund.
