A public Installation ifi to be held Today'i Play Can Pay Off Tomorrow By DAVID TAYLOR MARK* \t Education Reporter Children who have play of the right kind have a better clmnc« of developing into better - adjusted adults, say the Experts. Happy childhood memories, opportunities for self-expression, experiences in human relationships should help groom them for their responsibilities »s future citizens. According to Jean Schick Grossman, author and lecturer and director of parent education for the Play Schools Association, many parents now give at least lip-service to the value and importance of play in the life of their children. Says she: "Their hearts are in the right place. Millions are spent for children's toys In our country. There are more and more television sets both in urban and rural areas. Fewer parents continue to speak of play as a waste of time, a way of keeping the young out of mischief—although a goodly number continue to sing this refrain. Some mothers and fathers really enjoy playing with children In their homes or outside. Borne try to relive their own childhood vicariously; other attempt to compensate- often in extreme ways—for lacks In their own youth. Some leave the play of childhood to agencies outside the home—to schools and Y's and clubs, play centers and the like. They are too burdened, too weary, too distraught; life is too demanding; they have 'all they can do—'. Or they feel Inadequate, ill-equipped," Children know when we respect their play interests and offer encouragement and support, she says, adding: "1 once found myself in a rather painful, embarrassing: position when I asked a little girl, coming out of play school at the end of the summer afternoon, whether she was taklnf home to show her mother the clay ash Iray slie was clasping to her bosom so lovingly. "She answered. 'No, I'm going to show it to my friend's mother;.my mother would throw it in the gar- bagel' "A contrast to this story is one Sunday at 2 p.m., and to compliment Merry Nell Lane, out-going worthy advisor, the group will attend the First Methodist Church Sunday morning in a body.

Keep Head Up For Proud Look By NEA Beauty Editor Do you haye a woebegone walk or do you seem to face up to life? A shuffllnfr, spiritless walk, with your head drooping and your knees like water, can make worthless the time and money you've Invested in clothes because the figure you bought them for isn't shared by an adult woman friend, who recalled that once during her childhood she had brought back to the~dty to her mother a bouquet of wild flowers, which she had picked on a visit to an aunt in the country. For hours she had clutched the flowers in her damp little hands and they were wilted and sorry-looking when she presented them. But her mother smiled lovingly, thanked her and put them Into a vase of fresh water. My friend never forgot." •MM *at mot*.
