STKONG Parent.-! who allow yesterday's unhappy past to rob them of today's joy In their children are children themselves who refuse to accept the discipline of living, • Failure is a universal liuman experience. But if we accept past failures .45 proof of our inability to win and hold new affection, those failures can wreck our relationships with children Emotional disturbances among youngsters of divorced parents often jsprlng from parents' shaken confi- dence in their value to others. In the process of helping a boy under treatment for chronic truancy, we learned his mother's background. Daughter of a domineering mother, she had eloped at 18 and been dh'orced.A second marriage also had failed. When we worked with her, she gradually was able to recognize that her inability to control her son stemmed from a deep convictloir'of her own Incompetence to make good decisions, a distrust of her own right to authority. Her dominated childhood and failures as a wife had paralysed her confidence. Divorce Is generally only the climax to the repeated failures of two people to reconcile conflicting points of view. In the emotional tension, man and wife are unable to separate fact from fiction, and can emerge [rom the collapse of their marriage overwhelmed by a burden of self- doubt and defeat. A parent who has been divorced jim^l take time for a sincere appraisal of his experience. If he has tnnde mistakes, they should be admitted, and squeezed dry ot what- ever lessons they have; then they should be forgotten. Otherwise, any distrust of himself that is left over will carry over to his relationship with his child. The youngster's readjustment to the new slate of affairs will not DC hastened by a defensive, uncertain parent whose whole attitude suggests he Is not qualified to take authority. Parents who expect defiance have only themselves to blame if defiance Is what they get. Tomorrow: The desire fo ste jour children excel.

KISS OF DEATH—A seemingly harmless little peck between two starlings (inset) proved fatal to themselves and 200 others. The starlings were settled on two electric wires which sagged close together. When two birds made contact in the kiss, it caused a short circuit on the wires, electroculing the entire flock. Still in Operation; 'Revenooers' Don't Mind HICKORY VALLEY, Term. (iT)— There's a still in this little farming community that goes full blast off I and on and the 'revenooers 1 ' dont 1 1 mind at all. ft is used to make I oil-of^sassafras. not corn-squeez- in's or moonshine. It's easy (o tell when the s'.ill working. If you're anywhere in :he valley your nose will pick- up ;he sassafras smell. And it doesn't take long for the tellers In banks I "n surrounding towns to tell when ' the still has been at work. The money paid out to farmers and to helpers winds up in the banks and always, has that sassafras smell. Eldon Roark, feature columnist for the Memphis Press-Scimitar, says one person vho did complain was a Negro helper at the still, who asked fqr his pay In some money that didn't smell. "Tills here money's too easy for my wife to find.," he said. j^lTne life of galvanized ware used !i5,;water fountains for chickens or small animals may be prolonged by painting the outside and putting a coat of paraffin inside.

SPECIAl CREDIT Tit Mil STILL & YOUNG MOTOR CO. LANGSTON-McWATERS BUICK CO. European Payments Union Seen As Important Development in ERP H>- CI.AI1KK BEACH WASHINGTON. — An Important ne\v devclopniflU In the European recovery program Is the European Payments Union (EPU). The Mnr- shall Plan countries nre now draw- Ing up its charter In Paris. Paul G. HofTman, ndmtnl.strator of the Economic Cooperation Administration <ECA), has said that the Marshall Plan won't succeed without it. EPU is n novel Yankee Idea, first broached to the western Europeans In a speech by Hoffman Oct. 31. was sold on the Idea and made it a part of the law authorizing continuation of European aid for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1951. Ft stipulated that $600.000.000 of ECA funds should be spent through EPU in the coming year. Backers IIOJM? EPU will eventually provide European manufacturers with mass markets throughout Ku- rope. They could develop the cheaper, more efficient mass production methods which have done so much to make possible the enormous productive capacity and high living standard of the United States. When Europeans want to trade among themselves now they find a formidable array of obstacles. Some European currencies are considered sounder than others nnrt nations with good currencies don't svanl to exchange their money for that of weaker currency countries. Nearly all of the countries have tight Import- quotas to protect local industries. Some have high tariff walls Here's what EPU svilj do: When one country sells to another it will receive EPU credits, plus some gold nr dollars, instead of the currency of the country doing the buying. These credits can be used in any other country In EPU. Thus all currencies become equally valuable for purposes of European trade. Operates on Sliding Scale Part of the gold or dollars will be America's EGA contribution The SCOO.000.000 of ECA funds will be so distributed this year instead of being allotted in direct aid. The individual manufacturer will receive his full payment in the currency ot his own country. His government will get the dollars and EPU credits. The proportion of credits and dollars received will operate on a sort of sliding scale—and this is the most ingenius feature of the plan. The more a country sells, the larger will be the proportion of EPU credits it will receive and the smaller will be the proportion of dollars. This will practically force the seller country to buy in other countries in order to use up its EPU credits. On the other hand, the more a country buys, the larger will be the proportion of dollars It must put up in payment, nnd the smaller will be the amount of Us currency that will be accepted. When it runs short of dollars, it might be able to borrow some from ECA. Meanwhile, Its financial difficulties will become a matter for Investigation by EPU and the International Monetary . Fund. These agencies will send experts Into the country to see why it Is running such a deficit. They might find that Its government budget needs tightening, that its bank credit policies should be changed, that Its currency Is Inflated and so forth. "A country which doesn't attempt to put its own financial house In order will stand out like a sore thumb as a member of the union," says ECA spokesman. "Since membership In the union Implies the yielding of a certain amount of sovereignty, a country will have to listen to and act on advice from the union's managers who represent the other countries." It has been estimated that about half of all U. S. citizens are church members. The perfect salon wave...for home use!
