Andind d&ptain of nnan ce bucking Wall Street ha* ever faced greater reSpottstbliities, in the opinion of Amy ftosttet, .6t (Cleveland, • who knbws whereof she speaks. ^ As teacher in charge of Western Re- servf university's unique "nursery college," Miss ttostler is the daytime ' mother of thirty youngsters, „ 2 to 4 years old, who are just about as perfect specimens of the human animal as ever graced a baby crib. By actual practice as well as theory she haa found out how a normal child should -live during tba 'pro-school age When health habits and other characteristics that will mold the young- ier's lat«r life are being formed, "After all," she says, "children are just little animals. All they require to bo healthy is sufficient sleep, right food, proper amount and kind of play, ahd, of cotirse, regular examinations to prevent -illness." That sounds simple enough. But what are you going to do if > the 3- year-old turns up his nose at the fooc you deem; proper? JUst take the food away, answers this expertr He'll cat all right, when he gets "hungry. \ And suppose he knocks his little companion doWn while at play, 'what then? Don't punish him until you learn the motive. This may have been his only weapon of defense and he may have been entirely justified. The average child likes to ^pretend he la a fire engine, 'a bear.,or a (log If he ruins his stockings by playing like he is a dog and crawling on his hands and knees, j61n in the spirit of pretending and suggest he act like a kangaroo! Other rules suggested by Miss Host ler' for men and women who want to be happy, though parents, are: Keep cool. Don't make disobedience so Interesting by the excitement you stir up over it that the child who loves excitement would want to be disobedient, Give your child his own play space and toys. If he is with grownups top much, his initiative will not go much further than imitation. If he reaches for_ attractive objects don't snatch them away. It destroys his Independence and makes him fee dependent upon you. See to it that your child follows a " dally health routine faithfully with no exceptions. Regularity is the secret of success. Cultivate a casual manner In handling this routine and do not make-special pleas for the child to do this or that. An ideal daily schedule for preschool children, as drawn up by Miss VJHostler, follows : It 7 a. m.— Arises, washes himself and J|&,'cans his teeth with as little assist/ ance as possible, and then eats brealc- r 'fast. 8.30 a. m.— Takes morning drink of codllver'oll and then goes out to play. 10 a. m.— Drinks orange Juice. 11 a. m.— Clean up for lunch, including bath, and takes 20-minUte rest before eating. Should feed himself, use napkin and /pour own milk. 1 p. m. — After lunch, ho sleeps until play time. . 3 p. m. — Drinks glass of milk and then goes out to play until supper. 5.30 p. m.— Bats supper and remains 'indoors until bed time. 7 p. m.— Goes to bed. Toddling students at the nursery col- logo show amazing qualities of initiative in thought and action. One curly-haired collegian, aged three, comes to school alone each morning in a taxicab. Another is studying Greek letters and can name many of them. Still another knows more varieties of plant life 'than most grownups. Attendants must constantly be on the alert to see that the 'students do not go on codiivor oil "Jugs." Several were caught getting In line twice for the morning dose. Western Reserve's play school was established to provide a place where children might learn to think for them- aelyes, not merely absorb other people's ideas. Results of the learning-by-doing procedure are being closely checked to aid In further improvements in child education programs. DRlMK«4tAS9 OF MILK AWO UMTIt.

FLYNN. &W YORK, May 2.—I want again o call attention to the revival of the movement for organizing investment rusts. There Is nothing^ to be said gainst this. But once again I want o warn readers against going blind nto the general- management trusts vhich are not-protected by proper re- trlctlons. I observe that several of the new in- estment trusts contain what 'seem ke restrictions of a very drastic na- ure, but which, on analysis, turn out o be nothing of the sort. If all comes own to this: that the safest policy s to keep away.from the general man- .gement trusts until such time as the tales take measures to protect in- 'estors from exploitation. This' will •esult in keeping Investors out of some .rusts which are sound, but unfortunately thero are so many 'which. are not that the ordinary investor cannot i discriminate. ' . There is one form of general management trust which may be all right. It is the type which is almost akin .o the fixed type—a management trust .n which, however, management _ is permitted by buy only from a list of established dividend paying stocks. Such trusts, like the fixed trusts, are as a rule safe. This Is subject to one modification. That is in the case of those which exact too high a price of management. I see advertised only oday a large new investment trust in which the compensation is fixed at one-eighth of 1 per cent per quarter, based on the net assets of the trust. This seems quite little, but really amounts to one-half of 1 per cent a year which is enough and is about what the English trusts pay for management. Certainly management ought not to be over 1 per cent of net worth. However, this trust has a little joker n it—it provides that common stock- lolders shall receive only 90 per cent of the profits, the remaining 10 per cent going to the management corporation. Thus it is probable as this works out that the cost of management will run around 16 to 20 per cent of net income, rageously high, of the caution which is out- This is an example which Investors are compelled to exercise when dealing with these men.
