A psychology professor at the University of California at tx>s Angeles is amazed over the results ol a recent test lie gave his students, which brought to lig'it the fact that tne students thought of themselves as "average" but, rated other students as "maladjusted." Well, if he tries the same type test on Mr. and Mrs. America he'll probably discover that most of them harbor a whole set of similar convictions. Mr. and Mrs. America are firmly convinced they spend their income wisely. But just get 'em started on their friends ami neighbors. They're always making mistakes, and why they paid so much for such-and- such Mr. and Mr£. America will never be able to understand. Mr. and Mrs. A. also think they're pretty lumpy. But they aren't so sure about their friends. They cani figure out why some of them married each other in the first place. And they can't figure out how the others put up with each other. And A'hcn they hear that the are getting a divorce they "aren't a bit surprised." "Ou. Kids Were Brought Up Hlght" And take their kids. Air. and Mrs. A. think they've done a pretty good job of bringing up their own. But they could sure tell the neighbors on both the right and left and across the street a tiling or two. When tliey start a sentence beginning "What THAT kid needs" you can be sure THAT kids belongs to somebody else. And so It goes. The college student who thinks he's average but is convinced the other students In the class are maladjusted for one reason or another Isn't any funnier that the rest of us. We're all pure that we're, doing the best we can—and always wondering why the other fellow can't see the mistakes he's making. But at iciist it gives us something to talk about.
