The twins have been the subject of experimentation since 20 days after birth. One was trained in various physical skills while the other was permitted to grow "normally." Need Stimulation. Dr. Myrtle B. McGraw, who has trained the one and checked his progress against his brother's, is convinced that infants should be stimulated for maximum physical and mental development. Mrs. Woods, central figure in the following domestic drama, isn't so sure. The tow-headed twins, who will be 4 years old next month, are the supporting cast. The father, a JWA nurseryman, and the other five children are absent. Scene: the narrow kitchen of the Woods' six room flat. Mrs. Woods, who has found time to put her hair in curlers, is trying to do some ironing. Johnny, the "conditioned" twin, is trying to scale the cupboard. Jimmy, the normal, untrained one, sits quietly on a chair. What's Your Name? Mrs. Woods: Johnny, you get down from there. You'll break your neck. Get down and tell the man your name. Johnny: (reaching into the second shelf of the cupboard) What's his name? Why doesn't he tell me his name? . Mrs. Woods: (Proudly) Johnny was roller-skating when he was 19 months old. No, I can't tell much difference between them now, except that Johnny is always getting into things. Johnny: Look! Letter (He has found a bit of personal correspondence on the second shelf. Mrs. Wooi;j grabs it and him, puts the letter back and Johnny to the floor.) Â·- 'Â·Â· Hanging; on Taxi.

BUTTER MAKES THE SANDWICH SWEET CREAM There is no substitute Identical Twins Share Friends, Interests Alike By GAKKY C. MYEKS, 1'H. D. Child Training Authority. A little while ago I said a word about twins. In response to it the following; letter came from twin young ladies of Canada: "Dear Mr. Myers: We are writing this letter after reading your column. "We are a pair of IS year old twin girls, and we heartily disagree with your attitude toward the upbringing and training of twins. You begin by saying you were not lucky enough to be blessed with twins, and then you proceed immediately to say you would do all in your powei' to develop them into two entirely different individuals. Separate Characters. "What need, therefore, to consider oneself lucky if one would mold twins into two separate characters ? Would it not suffice to have two different and separate children in the first place? "We are identical twins and our tastes are identical. We dress exactly alike from tip to toe, not, Dr. Myers 'to feed the vanity of our parents and relatives' but because for centuries it has been customary for most twins to be alike in every respect. (Do you recall -Shakespeare's 'A Comedy of Errors?' "As for picking our clothes, we find that we invariably agree as to style and color, and ONE of us does not choose the dress, shoes or whatever it may be; instead, we ask each other's opinion. Never Had Quarrel. "As for friends, we have no need for choosing separte friends, the friends of one of us are automatically friends of the other. A friendship has grown up between us which could never be expected of any bosom friend--and, surprisingly, we have yet to have our first real quarrel! "As far as work is concerned, we have both been trained in the field of music. We have both studied piano since we were seven years old. One of us is not more accomplished or talented than the other. . . . "Our scholastic standing has always been very close--a difference, periaps. of two or three marks. "Perhaps we have shown yon how very completely we arc twins! And perha.ps. also, we have conveyed to you clearly enough how we hope all twins are? When They Fall in Love. "We have often read your column, and enjoyed discussing with our mother the various topics which you cover." I'm somewhat perplexed. What will happen when one of these twins falls in love? Of course, it is really none of my business what twins choose for themselves, nor even what their parents earlier choose for them. I merely offered some opinions which, so far as the writers of the forego- j letter are concerned, went haywire. I should appreciate hearing from many other twins, or anybody else, on this subject. No doubt the editor of this paper would like to print some letters on the subject, sent to him directly. tv. B. .UTXIU.YUV TO MEET WEDNKSn.XY K.

Miss Gladys Price spoke on "John Eglinton, Mystic Essayist," pointing out that he is the cnly essayist and one of the writers of the most beautiful prose to come out of the literary renaiS' sance in Ireland. "He is the least known of the writers associated with the literary revival," Miss Price said. She compared him to Emerson and to Wordsworth and read a number of comments on him and his work. Mrs. H. E. Swarner spoke on Padraic Colum and St. John Ervinc and read from their essays. She pointed out that both are better known as playwrites than as essayists.
