It was an ordinary evening home. The children were watching television. Papa was reading, mama waa stuffing clothes In the automatic washer before she settled down with a book, when the lights blinked once and went out. When the electricity had been off for ten minutes someone found a. candle and the family grouped themselves around it in a circle. As they sat by the glow of the candle they began to talk — and somehow or other papa started Wiling stories of his war experiences. "Tell us something else exciting that happened to you, daddy," the kids would prompt as soon as one story ended. And so for an hour, the children heard a series of fascinating stories they had never heard before, stories In which their own dad played an exciting, Important role. Then the lights came on and as the family circle broke up the youngest child asked wistfully "H the lights ever go off again, will you tell us some more stories, daddy?" None of us wants to go back to the days of the kerosene lamp in order to get back to the almost lost art of family conversation. But we parents shouldn't forget that'nothing draws a family together like good talk. And that family talk !> one thing today's children often miss.
