Big Urge to Own Car Based On Immaturity What Is wrong with a husband who Is far more interested In the car he drives thnn in the home he provides for his family? Recently there has been a number of letters from wives •--» claim that their husbands d o n't care how the family lives as Ion? as he has a shiny new car to drive. They say thai even though everything about the house Is run down,* there at- Rutb Mlltetl ways seems to be enough money for the nusband to trade last year's automobile for a new and often more expensive one. It Is probably not neceseary to point out to these wives that their husbands are immature. That they still have teen-age standards and an adolescent need for feeling like big shots. They get that feeling when they get behind the wheel oi a shiny new automobile. It Is the one way they have been able to figure out to say to the world, "Look, I'm somebody." But can the wife do anything about the matter? Perhaps. Her job Is to try and make the husband sec that how a family lives Is far more Important than what kind of a car they use for transportation. She may be able to appeal to his need for wanting to tell the world he is somebody by pointing out that a man's economic standing is judged by the way his family lives and how well he is able to provide for them, not by the kind of car he drives. She can point out the absurdity of a big, shiny car parked in the driveway of a run-down, uncared- for home. ; . It would probably be good strategy for her to start entertaining as much as she cfin afford .to so her husband will see their home through the eyes of outsiders. But there Is no quick and easy solution. There never Is for the wife who is dealing with an immature and self-centered husband.

He got married all right, but didn't get to kiss his bride, the former Jo-Ann Friedman, of Shaker Heights, Ohio. Shubert, his bride, their parents and his brother, Norman, gathered in the Shubert home for the marriage ceremony. "It took just five minutes," Shubert said. "I got up out of bed, put on my tuxedo. 1 went downstairs and got married. Then she and'the others went off to the reception and I hear they had a fine time. I went back upstairs, took off my tuxedo and went back to bed." Best he can do now is look at his .bride's picture and talk to her on the telephone. Children Today Learn Best By Working Playing Together By DAVID TAYLOR MARKE AP Newsfeatures Writer A child's mental balance, his emotional and spiritual well-being, his success in work, in family and community life — all hinge on the way he relates himself to other human beings. I talked with Mrs. Victoria Wagner, principal of the Ethical Culture Society's Midtown School, about the problem of human relations. Now celebrating its 75th anniversary, the Society, she says, has been concerned from Its inception with this kind of education and the special understanding called lor on the part of administrators, teachers and parents who must develop these skills In the child. This kind of education, she says, requires parents and teachers alike to be concerned with the way the child plays with others, takes his turn, shares materials, senses the needs and respects the rights .of his fellows; and equally important, the degree to which he feels accepted and makes himself an active member of his group and the larger school community. Such concerns connot be left to chance, sh^ says. "For example, m the Ethical Culture schools, our 'shop work' is ideally suited to education in cooperation. Each child has a chance to share tools and facilities, help one another with ideas and skills and feel an obligation to consider the needs and safety of co-workers." In addition, she points out, children learn the proper respect for materials and tools. They are taught that putting awr materials carefully and keeping tools and equipment in good shape not only makes life easier for themselves but for the next class as well..Splashing paint may destroy some one else's treasured creation. Distracting a neighbor's attention while he is .using a machine may lead to an accident. This consideration for other people is a part of human relations. Says she: "Shop work, with the tiniest child, can be fun. There should be wo forced competition. Once having learned fundamentals, each rhild should be free to choose his own project He should be encouraged to develop individual expression. However, each job ably turned out — a smoothly sandpapered piece, a good varnish finish, a well designed bowl on the In the — encuurajn others to do better work/' In the home, she says, parent* should plan things to do with their children. They should help to bring out their children's ideas and desires and then work them out together. Children should be taught to use real tools, Jusfc like dad's. Working side by side, the child soon learns how to use tools the right way, the safe way, she says. The one fault parents have Is to judge their children's work by adult standards, she cautioned. "Don't make a fetish of perfection. Rather, think of the child's accomplishments on the basis of his maturity. On the other hand, the child derives no satisfaction from praise for something he Knows is not good, A parent should know what a child can do and, whether on the basis of, this knowledge a child's work deserves praise." In a setting such as this, concludes Mrs. Wagner, the young person can develop a reverence for craftsmanship. Putting aside his personal likes arid dislikes, he comes to recognize that skill merits recognition in its own right.
