Pierce; has MONDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1954 of "anything I can d6" by not forgetting her • or putting off doing what they can do to help her make a new life for herself. Those few are, of course, her real friends. At the time of another'* trouble or sorrow most people are genuinely sorry. Most honestly wish Lhey could do something to help. But only those with understanding hearts and a gift for friendship go beyond the moment of obvioui need to try to help over a period of time. If we want to be a real friend to those whose lives touch ours, we have to go beyond extravagant offers of help to keep right on doing the little everyday kindnesses that go on and on. So don't forget the friend that last month or last year you wer« willing to do "anything 1 for. Ont little thing done today will b« worth more than nil your best intentions or most extravagant claims of sympathy.

"We believe in old-fashioned discipline." says Dale. "Each child has certain duties. Even little Dodie must put away her toys and hang up her clothes before she ROCS to bed lit night. The boys empty the wastcbackets, hang up their clothes and spread up their becl.s before they leave for school in the morning. The two older girls make their own beds, set the table and help with the dishes. "Today's youngsters .are living in such a mixcd-up world that I think the only way to keep them on the right track is to give them responsibilities, and try to teach them the rules. "Tilings are tough for kids these days, especially the boys.
