MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 6 1936 NINE Mother Voices Another View About Parties B.v GARRY C. MYERS. I'M. D. Child Training Authority Some while ago I said in this column: "Perhaps some of my readers will feel like shooting me when they read this article. No matter. I would strongly advise against formal parties until the 'teens. I might compromise on birthday parties. . . ." Here is one of the answers to that article: "Dear Sir: I am a mother of a little girl, and the enclosed article DOES NOT make me wish to shoot you, but it does make me wish to contradict the statements in the article for the reason that I am one who has had practical experience in this sort of thing, as I have been giving my little daughter very large and elaborate parties over a period of years. They were an utter JOY. not only to tlic little girls who attended, but to my child as well. But my child was not the timid or unsocial type. However, she never had boys to any of her parties before her last one--and that last one was, to say the least, the most disheartening' and disgusting experience I have ever had the misfortune to experience, as boys and girls were present! From Good Ri.mJlies. "Always before, all the children who came to our children's parties were from splendid families--people not necessarily yeiy affluent, but all of high class, fine people--they behaved themselves as children should and always went away with happy smiles on their faces and full stomachs (and arms). But as my daughter is now 14 and in high school, several of my close friends suggested inviting some of the 'nice boys' anfi their girl friends. . . , "So I planned a dance and dinner for the "nice boys," the boys of representative families of this city-- and their friends! I planned an orchestra for dancing, a delightful dinner perfectly served, a beautiful moonlight wide veranda few dancing, prizc-s and everything possible. The prizes were not 'pernicious,' but the guests wore. Refused t* JUance. "Instead of taking advantage of ray hospitality and enjoying the evening as they should, they refused to dance, and instead paired off with their dates over the grounds and terraces, and to use the very familiar and popular slang phrase, ·necked' the entire evening--and one child complained bitterly that there was nothing stronger than water to drink. "Now, kind sir, listen to a 'mother.' The elaborate parties should not begin with the teen age. They should end with, the teen age. "My daughter was thoroughly sickened with her first grown-up party of. mind you, children from supposedly n i c e parents--filthy minded morons who are not satisfied with clean fun, but demand liquor and necking at their parties." of Fur-trimmed Winter COATS Regular $16.95 Values No effort has been spared to make this final clearance of women's fur-trimmed coats the greatest in our history.
