"We all realize that something- dramatic and terrific is happening n the world," Mr. Browne said. 'For a while we thought just the younger generatioon had gone haywire, but after the blow of 1929, we =uw the older generation going to seed. There was a long drag at the bottom of an economic depression and then 1933 came and we were olted forward. Now people are say- ng that we are worse off than be- 'ore and that we are headed for a jewildering sort of dictatorship. On ai; sides there are wars and rumors of war and revolution is on every sphere. We are confronted with new schemes, new dreams and new tragedies. "It is not enough to say we are in an age of transition. We are always n transition, but we must find out what sort. There are historians who elieve that our western civiliza- :ion is declining and that this inevitable. It happened in Egypt, in Babylonia, in Greece and in Rome. Tollowing the Roman decline came l he dark ages, a depression which asted 700 years when not only mon- :y, but everything else disappeared. Romans Had Bath Tubs. "The Romans had bath tubs, a iign of civilization. They had well tuilt roads. Their fleets sailed regularly. They had factories, and al- ibough they did not have machines, hey had slaves.

But now our name is off the waiting list and the new Zoric Cleaning Unit is in our plant. We'll tell you something else. Everybody in the plant, everybody in the office crowded around the gleaming new Zoric Unit to see the first suits and dresses come out. And did they open their eyes? They'd heard all the good things about Zoric- cleaning from other cities... but they never expected anything like this. Dingy, droopy suits came out with color revived, nap perked up. with a like-new look and a first-day feel. The filmiest chiffons, the sturdiest tweeds came out as bright and new- looking as they were in the show- window. Woolens went in harsh and came out soft. Satins went in dull and came out shimmering. And there wasn't so much as a hint of odor. It does sound marvelous. It is marvelous. Send us your suits and frocks, skirts and blouses, coats and draperies--all of your cleanable articles-and, we promise you, you'll get the surprise of your life when we bring them back from a Zoric cleaning.

The difficulty of travel is increasing .and these are all signs of our decline. "The decline has come about because we don't understand this western civilization created by machinery. Machinery has revolutionized our lives and has socialized us to the extent that it is impossible for us to be individualists. We are hopelessly controlled by social necessities. We fight it, but it is utterly and completely essential. No More Individuals, "A revolution Â· has happened. There are certain implements which have made revolutions, such as fire, the plough, the automobile and the typewriter.

Little Girl Can Be Taught to Be Help to Mother By GAItltY C. MYEKS, PH. D. Child Training Authority. A mother writes: "My little girl is just four. Is this too early to start her helping in the home? Sometimes she takes a spurt to wash dishes. This lasts for maybe three days. Beyond this she seems to take no interest in helping to keep the house in order. I do not mean to make a drudge of her, but it worries me when I think maybe it will always be this way. Shall I give her special things to do each day, even though it means dragging these duties out perhaps all day with, 'All right, mother, wait until I do this'? In our mother's club we are divided on the subject. For our next meeting I must lead the discussion on 'Why Children Object to Helping in the House'." Teach Self-Care. My answer in part: Don't assign that child special jobs now except those related to her own self-care, and try to get them done without bossing so much. Be sure she feels herself, prepares herself for meals, and appears promptly, hangs her clothes up at night and her nighties in the morning, puts away her playthings at bedtime, hangs up her coat and hat "on a low hook, provided for her when she comes into the house, and the like. On these matters he exacting. Allow no exceptions. If she volunteers to do little turns about the house, or does so at your courteous request, show strong appreciation; then she will help more. But do not assign these very jobs she had done voluntarily. Remember that when you ask this child to do something, you should honor her response as if you had made the request of an adult--if you wish to win her co-operation. Shift not to commanding her nor be angry if she does not acceed. Once she knows you will treat her considerately she will grow more ready to co-operate. Do Job Regularly. When you assign the child at six or seven such a job as setting the table or drying the dishes, see that she does this job regularly without exception. Have no argument. If necessary, assign an effective penalty, execute it; and keep quite. Talk is disastrous. Know that she is learning responsibility only when she does a definite job regularly over a period of several months without any prompting whatsoever. Otherwise she is merely a tormented robot. Haste: not to add new jobs. If there ar more chfldrenÂ· old enough to help}' see that eSch one has his own job. Set not two children at the same time on the same job. Mothers of boys: Let them learn to do about the house any job a girl can do. MARRIAGE LICENSE ISSUED TO COUPLE. NEW HAMPTON--A marriage license was issued to Elmer W. A. Ladhoff, 27. and Eunice A.
