DEAR MARY HAWORTH: I am a boy 15, and ! have a very big problem about my family. I come from a family with no real feeling for life. Since I was small, my parents never seemed to care about the family. I have two brothers and two sisters. •* My father seems to think all he alias to do is go to work, eat -and sleep. He never cares what we do. He never goes to see me play ball. He just doesn't seem to enjoy being with us. I don't care about myself; it is my 9-year-old brother I care about. He isn't getting the love of my parents that he ne_eds so badly. We are all very nervous about the situation. v • My sisters are over 21,- and still living with us; but they are always out having a good time. 1 guess they are like our parents; they don't care about the problem. In the past they tried to tell my moth- and father of their mistakes, but my parents wouldn't listen. So my sisters just learned'to live with the situation. But I am not going to be like them. , Worries Most About Brother Maybe my sisters don't need love, but my young brother and I do. That is why God 'lets parents have children —to love them. If parents can't love children, they shouldn't have any. Then my father complains that we don't listen .to him. Like when ha-wants my young brother to go .to bed. Instead of putting his foot down,, my father just keeps saying "Get to. bed" —. over and over again; and it drives us crazy listening-to. him. .-..-. I In other words, our family is" one mess. AH I can say is, if some day I get married and have children, and it happens that I can't love kids as normal people should, ] wish God would strike me dead. Please put this in the paper. Maybe on reading this my parents might change their ways. Thank you very much.—P. D. Another Slant On Parenthood DEAR P. D.: Many goodhearted parents love their children loyally, to the best of their ability—according to the talents and opportunities they have—and at the same time are bored by the children's childhood activities. And I think that most fathers are. probably less closely, interested in children's pursuits than mothers are. In the animal kingdom as well as in human society, the father's prime function when offspring are small is to provide an oasis of security for the'mother, wherein she may take care of the young. A father's devotion to children doesn't necessarily include comradely sharing their "child's world" of interests. . However, the postwar generation of parents (since the mid-1940s) seems to be changing the pattern of family teamwork somewhat. Whether the change will be permanent, I don't know. At any rate, many new fathers nowadays are regularly helping in the kitchen and nursery (thus getting close to the kids), in exchange for wage earning help from the mother, as soon as possible after childbirth. These fathers aren't being sentimental, so much as they are being practical.. The latterday costs of decent 'family support often require two average salaries to keep tills paid.

Your dad (as described) sounds like an easygoing sort, whose children at least have some leeway in getting grown. Also he sounds like a tired, discouraged man, tied to a treadmill routine of "work, eat and sleep." ' . You, on the other hand, sound emotionally vigorous, full of love- feeling that cries for recognition and reciprocation. So I take it you aren't a cold fish, afraid of closeness—as you might be, if your parents were as loveless as you imply. On the basis of your letter, my advice is: If you want loving notice from parents, be lovable and considerate. \Make them as happy as you can. Tell your brother (for me) to get to bed the first time he is told; or to go at the proper time without-" .being, told. Don't be a nuisance, staying up, keeping Dad nagging irritably at him. Both of you: Listen, when your parents speak, and obey quickly and cheerfully. You'll feel better, doing so; and they are sure to like you more.—M. H.

Finally—and this is the heari of the new concept—both theme and technical superiority were ;iven a focus through an intelligent narrator. Chester Bowles, former Ambas sador to India, figuratively took Americans by the hand and guidec them through a complex problem understands well and was a' pains not to over-simplify.
