(MASON ON EDUCATION Self-Control Is Essential Trait By LESUE J. NASON, Ed. D. University of Southern Calif. Vacation provides an ideal opportunity for a child to develop •elf-control under his parents' guidance. The true meaning of self-control or discipline is training, not punishment. Training through punishment alone will not pro•duce results. • Of course, there are situations i where the handling of small children must be positive — New Arena Plans Show For Sunday Weeping Willow Arena, the area's newest horse show enclosure, will open with a 28- event horse show Sunday, at 9 a.m. Two highlights of the day long program will be jackpot roping contest and a jackpot cutting horse contest.

Anniversary Fete Set By LSU Service The Louisiana State University Agricultural Extension Service, a brancli of the LSU College of Agriculture, will observe its anniversiry Monday, according to Job" E. Jackson, county agent here. The celebration will be held beginning at 10 a.m. in the John M. Parker agricultural center on the LSU campus at Baton Rouge. Dr. John A. Hunter, LSU president, will be the principal speaker. The founding ol the extension service will also be commemorated with a special program to be held in connection with Home and Garden Week at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Jackson said. This program will take place at 7:30 p.m. Monday in the university chapel. Dr. Hunter will be the principal speaker at Southern also. "This belongs to daddy and is not a toy for you to play with," or "Do not touch, it is hot and will burn you," or "Do not go into the street." A quick slap on the buttocks may be necessary occasionally at the beginning to make a child realize there are some things he must not touch or must not do. Bnl. punishment as the only means of discipline handicaps children for success in school Mrs. Green consistently used the negative approach to training with the result that when her Johnny first entered school he held back from entering the games on the playground. In the classroom he never asked a question and could seldom be coaxed into answering one. He seemed afraid to do anything that was at all different from the things he had done at home. His mother had built in k! a fear oC frying anything new. If lie touched the wrong thing lie got his hands slapped. If he said the wrong thing he got scolded. Through a trial and error existence he learned how to avoid punishment; in fact, his life consisted primarily of living in such a way as lo avoid punishment. Consequently, in school he took the attitude that if he did noth ing he wouldn't be punished. He probably didn't think it out that way, but this was the habit pattern back of his behavior. This child's lack of success in school followed directly from his faulty training. If a child is to develop self- control he must have opportunities to touch certain things, to play with certain tilings and to do certain things without fear of punishment. He must be able to decide in do things as wel as to restrain from forbidden ac lions. During the summer a chile should have times when he cai choose an activity for himself—always within given limits. For example, he may decide to play "catch" with a friend knowing the activity will meet his parents' approval, provided the play is conducted so that a ! missed ball will not carry into ! the street or through a window. ! Or he may decide to drag out ! his paints, "brushes and paper, i knowing that his efforts will win approval; yet that he must clean up and put the materials away when finished. What he decides to draw and what colors he uses are, of course, his own decisions. These are but examples of he kinds of situations in which children can exercise self-c o n- trol. They vary greatly, with the age and interest of the cliil- dren. The essential thing is that parents remember not to dictate every minute of their children's lives but allow them some chance to develop on their own!

South'* band fe worth 19 points, counting high cards and distribution, and witn a virtually solid salt be b Cully warranted in flashing the slam signal by making a jump shift response. South took full charge of the subsequent proceedings and, after his pariaex showed the heart suit he proceeded diamonds. to the hand if diamonds broke in any reasonable manner. When South played the ace of trumps, however, East showed out—which %as a most bitter blow. In fact, it so unsettled the declarer to find all of the diamonds banked behind him that he bluntly conceded two trump tricks to West and proceeded to inform everyone of the odds to \\hich he had paid off. When the dummy was spread, South was roughly an 8-to-l shot to succeed, but the supreme irony of the deal was that, even after the horrendous division in diamonds, it was still in his power to make the slam. His prospects hinged on being able to reduce his diamond holding to the game length as West's and then endplaying his opponent in the trump suit. At trick three a club is led to dummy's ace and a small club is ruffed. The king and ace of hearts are cashed and another dub is trumped. The appearance of West's quaen on the third round of clubs suggests the abandonment of that suit, so the remaining two gpades are cashed, ending in the -N'orta hand, and a heart is ruffed. South is cow down to the king- 9-« of diamonds, wiiila West retains the Q-J- 4. A small trump lead throw i V.V-t in with the jack and he mu^t surrender th« last two tricks t? th« declarer.

Giordano charged Tuesday that drug peddliiiu mobsters hide behind a loophole in the federal law while using threats of murder in efforts lo silent wit- against them. FII testimony prepared as a leadoff witness in a new Senate probe of the illicit traffic in narcotic drugs, Giordano said federal law now provides no penalty for threatening a potential witness in advance of the formal start of judicial proceedings in which he would testify. The commissioner appealed to the Senate Investifiations sub- committpfi to bark legislation to imptse severe penalties on surh intimidation tactics. He also endorsed a bill by the subcommittee's chairman, Sen. John L. Me- Clellan. D-Ark,, which would legalize telephone wire tapping by the police but only if authorized by secret court order. Even without these requested new laws, Giordano said, his worldwide network of undercover agents has been making "substantial progress" in its war on the drug peddling underworld, particularly the traffic in the dangerous narcotic drug heroin. However, he said, there has been a disturbing rise in the smuggling of addicting coraine to the United States from Cuba.
