' Mary Haworth's Mail Traffic Signals To Be Expedited Editor's 'Note: Girl, t, recipient of beautiful doll,. It hurt when mother lends It to j another. DEAR MARY HAWORTH: Some sveekp ago I gave a beautiful "doll to.rhy niece, who is 8 years old. Sally.-treasures the doll and wants to keep it in perfect condition. But while she is at school or out playing,; her mother (my sister-in-law) allows a neighbor child. 3, to handle the*doll, take-off the shoes and stockings, etc. Sally resents this, but the mother insists "there is nothing' wrong in letting the other child"play with the doll; and says;:-in fact, that Sally is being'selfish and reluctant to share her toys. I'disagree with her and side with Sally. We would appreciate • your merit. :': .'•"•' " • clarifying com- Mother Misses ' training Cue DEAR H. C.: Sally's mother is making a mistake,-in trying (as she thinks) to give Sally an example of generosity, by, this method. From the child's viewpoint she is"proving nothing, except that "Might makes right"—and tha 1 there is no justice, apparently. All children taught re spect for property rightSr-ra lesson that has to be mastered,' in build ing the framework of .good chara cter. And the lesson is best assimi late'd, from the'start, if a child las properties of his own, cherish ed by him, and respected as such by his guardians and playmates. This is the common' sense beginning, in promoting respect for ownership rights. Naturally a child should be rained to share too, within reason, as nobody lives to himself alone in the human scene. But it sn't teaching Sally altruism, or the joys of sharing, to go over her lead, or behind her back, against icr wishes, to lend her best doll to a 3-year-old. It simply amounts to paternal disloyalty. . Be Persuasive Not Coercive Sally's mother ought .to appeal to Sally's feelings, ahd>y to-ari- duce her to.savor the soul satisfactions of being unselfish.t Or she might tactfully'.negotiate sin exchange of-favors, with- the other household .T- so that Sally would rate some special treat, in return for sharing .her doll. ••••;.:• However, if Sally remains immovably . defensive 'in wanting the doll all to herself, that specific sentiment should be respected; and other opportunities found for seeding the practise of charity in her.f-M.

DEAR MARY.: HAWORTH: We are a happy farm couple,, both of a rather,'serious .nature. .'We feel that-a sense of humor would help us to enjoy both our family and our work more. (Mom teaches as a sideline.) But the problem is — how to develope a sense of humor? Can you recommend some' books that might help?We 'especially feel the need of help in handling and humoring boys of 12 and, 13. Every book you 'pick up .says: "Keep your sense of- humor." But what book how to get one?—1LJ. '". This Is Humor In A Nutshell DEAR H. J.:.I don't know of any book that teaches a sense of iiumor as such, although some of Mark Twain's novels embody the essence of it. The faculty consists in seeing persons, events and situations objectively, with detachment, through happy.lenses.....,; In dealing with boys 12 and 13, it would also include occupying their shoes (imaginatively), and passing judgment on yourself from their angle, while you do your adult best for them. ' This ought to give you many a chuckle, down in your soul, and keep you sympathetically young in heart.-M.H. .. . Mary Hnworth counsels through her column, not by mail or personal Interview.
