PET PARADE --Pt»k bv Rosemary B«cX Guess who wasn't invited to the barbecus. But these basset hounds can see what's going on through grille. fly Eleanor Avery Price WfcOGS WITH nothing more ·^^ to do than yip and cry in the backyard are unhappy pets. They are blameless for the trouble they create but, of course, should not be turned loose to roam. It is up to owners- to see that they have interests and are made part of the family. If your dog isn't l e a s h broken, see that he is so you can take him on walks around the neighborhood. An early morning brisk walk is fine, and another more leisurely one in the evening will also be appreciated. Do not permit the dog to soil any lawns or shrubbery along the way. Arrange some means for your dog to see out of the back yard. If "you have a board fence, you can cut a lookout hole or two in it large enough for him to poke his head through. Or perhaps a grill can be incorporated in the fence that will help him see beyond the confinement of his yard. In the house, place a chair by a window overlooking thfe street, and let this be fiis chair. Of course, if he barks at everything that moves he will need some training. AND HERE is where an o b e d i e n c e training class comes in handy. It will help you train your pet as well as give him something to do. You will also benefit by the fresh air, the mild exercise, an absorbing hobby, 'a fine recreational a c t i v i t y , and some new friends. Keep up the lessons at home during the cool of the day, but never make them long and tiresome. Alternate them with play periods. A dog loves to retrieve a ball even when he has outgrown his puppy hood. Grooming the dog daily lets him know you care for him. And keep him inside with you part of the time. CHILDREN at home during summer will, of course, pro- v i d e companionship. However, their noisy boisterous play may tend to make the dog bark more and sometimes cause him to revert to his natural animal mannerisms which domestication cannot always, sublimate. Teach the dog to "Come," and call him if he is misbehaving. If he ignores you, a sharp "No!" accompanied if necessary by a swat on the dog's hind quarters with a folded newspaper should teach him that his actions are not acceptable. Removing h i m temporarily from the children might also help him mend his ways. · O l d e r children can be taught to keep their dog in line with firm but not shrill commands or by distracting World College (Continued from Page 8) more in the next 10 years than it has in the past 40 years, creating a college crisis. Consequently, the sponsors of the University of the Seven Seas regard this school as a pilot project. Their long- range purpose is to charter other ships that are not being used to full capacity throughout the y e a r , launching a fleet of floating colleges that can a c c o m m o d a te many times the 525 students who will embark the first semester. These are the forerunners of the students of the future, some of them citizens of our own privileged country, some of them citizens of foreign lands, but all of them, in a larger sense, citizens of the world.

Nor should they be of any splintery material. Beef hide chew sticks, nylon hones, strong leather toys, hard rubber toys {check often to be sure the dog isn't nibbling off pieces), and an occasional large knuckle bone are acceptable. If the dog chews on something you value, such as the edge of a carpet, make a paste of alum and smear it where he is chewing. Or pxit some bitter substance on it such as weak nux vomica.
