IOWA CITY — Parents, grandparents, et al, the biggest buying season for your children is fast approaching, his year why not do something different? Really consider what you are buying. Before you say, "But I do think about what I buy," and toss this article aside, read these few "do's" and "don'ts". First of all, don't merely buy what your child wants. Perhaps this sounds cruel, but consider where he or she probably got the idea: Wasn't it some zingy commercial? And isn't that what the company is trying to do, sell its merchandise? So, naturally it is going to look and- or sound good. But when yon the consumer, goes to buy it, do look it over carefully. "Look it over for what?" you ask. First, consider your child. Consider his interests, that is, the kind of things you know him (or her) to enjoy; his developmental or age level; that is, the things you know him to be capable of doing. Any child will quickly lose interest in anything that is too easy or too difficult to play with. And, here, unfortunately we can't always go by what the manufacturer has listed as the appropriate age, but you know your child. Then consider the toy, its danger. Ralph Nader just a year ago brought to our attention the number of injuries that occurred, (actual reported injuries, which doesn't count the many minor ones) from what he termed "hazardous" toys, the ones that "underneath" are Missionary Speaks at Society Meeting (Times Herald New* Service) MANNING — The Rev. Timon Kaple, OFM, CAP, was guest speaker at fche Nov. 17 meeting the Sacred Heart Rosary and Altar Society, held at the Parish Hall. Timon, a missionary, talked on his work in New Guinea missions, showing slides. He answered questions of the group following his talk. Forty women were present for the meeting. A need for adult supervisors for young children during second mass was stressed. Luella Hull reported that 19 baptismal gowns bad been completed. The Rev. Norbert Weber asked that families pray the rosary together on Sunday before mass. Sally Kruse presented an article "For God's Sake" on poverty in the U.S. The Society will sponsor a bake sale at Union- gas on Dec. 12. The December meeting will feature the Rev, Fr. Bedeaux, another mission ary from New Guinea. The evening's prizes were awarded to Regina Mohr and Dorothy Stangl. Lunoh was served by Mrs. Dale Johnson and Mrs. Delmar Mundt and their commi- tee. Mr. and Mrs. Gus Jensen and Albert Jensen spent the week end in C1 i n t o n, attending the 25th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Bernhardt Jensen. On Monday they visited with members of the Westphal family in Maquoketa. COUNCIL TO MEET A special meeting of the Carroll city council will be held at 5 p.m. Monday, November 23, in the council meeting room on the second floor of the City Hall. dangerous. For examples, the dolls with wires directly under the surface (Doesn't your little one put everything in his mouth?); the rubber-tipped or suction-cupped darts that, when the tips fall off, display very sharp points; or the electrical toys that overheat. The worst example of this is the popcorn popper that was known to heat to 150 degrees on the handle! Consider, too, the "frustrating" toys. The ones made poorly, of plastic that will split after its first use, or wheels that will fall off before "the" day is over; or the dolls requiring such fine fingers required to dress them that even you would have difficulty, let alone your young girl whose small muscle control is still developing; or the dolls with so many mechanical aspects that many won't work from the beginning, or after the first trial. (This could be anything with multiple mechanisms). And what about the. frustration that occurs, understandably, when those little animals, dolls, or whatever won't stand up, and have to be "leaned- against?" Also are you considering in your selection some "cooperative" toys — those that need more than one child to at least make them more fun? Children need things that will help them play more with others, rather than something that is "mine" alone. Lastly, please do consider a toy for its value; those that allow your child to think, to create, to imagine. By this, it is not necessarily meant those that are promoted as "educational toys". If they do look good to you, if they do appear to have several uses, and if they are bought, remember, you aren't buying them in order that your child may "get started learning early." Do realize that these toys have many possibilities, and don't insist that they be used the way it's supposed to be used. This not only takes away some of the natural means of learning, but often, with the pressure that is applied, makes it negative learning. Leave the child alone, sometimes in his play so that he may discover things about his newly acquired toys, maybe things the manufacturer hadn't even dreamed ofl Social Calendar Monday— Toastmistress, 5:30 p.m., Joe's Executive Club Xi Gamma Pi, Mrs. Doran Brogden Hospital Auxiliary, 6:30 p.m. potluck and general meeting, Lutheran Church UCT Auxiliary, Joe's Executive Club Rebekah Lodge, IOOF hall New Bidders, Mrs. Jerry Nichols H.
