Citizen, drafted into the army and spending a few testing days at an army reception center.' early in his stay goes before an officer who acts as "interviewer." He and perhaps 100 other men are to be submitted to an intelligence test. It provides a quick and reliable classification of men. according to their general capacity to learn. It does not profess to test such qualities as honesty, truthfulness, courage, etc. Each man is handed-a sheet. The test material is so arranged that a man may reply to questions by marking on an answer sheet. The papers are later scored by an ingenious set of stencils, so that nothing is left to personal judgment. The scoring is practically automatic. One hour is usually allowed for this test. There is another set of test cards for illiterates or for men who speak only a foreign language. The grade a man earns in these tests furnishes a fairly reliable index of his ability to learn; to think- quickly and accurately; to analyze a situation; to maintain a state of mental alertness; and to comprehend and follow instructions. Grades are as follows: Grade 1—Very superior . intelligence. Tliis is earned by about seven in every 100. Indicates men of high officer type, if they also possess leadership and education.

Stuff Writer Tho war nncl the economically troubled times have raised many questions in the minds of children and young people—questions.' which you as a parent may be called on to answer. Some of thorn may prove so tough will 'welcome help in answering them, Here arc Uuf .suggestions of Dr. Ira S. Wile, noted psychiatrist, to parents who have to deal with some of thoye questions. Dr. Wile wants it. made; clear that^pnrenta have a dent to answer the questions according to their own beliefs, opinions, nncl ideals. These nnswers arc merely siiKgostlons' to parents who foci in iieed of help. Tvi^rni Questions: THEY LIKE TO SHOCK THE 01-D FOLKS Johnny says, partly;. because-he admires'any kind of'Strength and partly because he knows -it will make his parents sit up and' listen, "You hiivt; |,o admit, that Hitler is a-military genius." "Instead of jumping down Johnny's throat and declaring that Hitler is a hysterical, little man, be reasonable," Dr. Wile advises. "Ask Johnny Just how much lie knows about Hitler, setting him stvaiuht whenever he Is wrong on his facts. • "Then tell him that Hitler has unquestionably done some good things for his own 'people. Admit that he is possibly a military genius, but point out that., to anyone who believes in freedom rather than slavery, his genius has been misdirected." i A son : near conscription age says he doesn't think his country has the right to ask him to serve a year In the army. < Dr. Wile thinks it is important \ for you to try to foster in your son nn attitude, not for conscription, but for individual responsibility to his country. Tlie person who feels a personal responsibility for: his country won't resent giving) whatever .service his country «sks j of him. . I Young Paul has some ideas that aren't popular with the rest of his crowd. He is honest in his beliefs, but lie doesn't like his sudden unpopularity. "Parents," says Dr. Wile, "should make it clear to their children that while it is a man's privilege to believe us he chooses in a democracy, he must be willing- to take tho full responsibility for his beliefs. : As -mi • example. Point out that the-. .Quakers have never lost because of their conscientious objections to war, because the Quakers have always taken full responsibility for their beliefs and have served their country in other ways than fighting." A son or daughter of college aye comes home full of radical ideas and confronts his father with them Dr. Wile suggests tliat you answer these radical notions by say- to{?: "I understand why you think us you do. At:your age "i felt the' same. way. But I have learned from experience that . . " Dr. Wile admits that you will probably.' be called an "old fogey" for your-, pni.ns''' but thinks you needn't worry too much about the radical ideas of your children.
