Mama lot only cooks the meals, but she nlso sets the table, clears it off when the meal Is finished, does the dishes, and only then joins the family circle. Maybe Papa lends a :mnd occasionally. But the children? Nothing doing. They're in their rooms reading a comic book, listening to the radio, or In the living room looking at' television when there are family chores to be done. If they do take on an occasional job it is for pay, or because Mama and Ppna periodically decide they nueht to help around the place a little and go on a one or two-day crusade, to get them to do a few jobs. But as for continuing responsibilities, today's youngsters Just don't have any. Parents Wind Up WUh Chores Junior gets a dog — and Mama takes care of him. Sis gets a room of her own, fixed up according to her taste, and then leaves it in mess day after day for Mom to clean up. Betty thinks she is otd enough to dote, but Mama is supposed to keep her clothes ready to wear. Joe wanders off to the drugstore or takes tbe family car out for the evening while Dad mows the lawn In family after family children don't have one single day-ln-imd- day-out responsibility they are expected to fulfill as part of their contribution to family living. There's just one thing wrong with the iden of giving children everything and asking nothing in return- Nothing is exactly what the parents get. / NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, 111., June 27.
