Phone 2067 Memorizing Is Easy for Child; Gives Pleasure By GAKBY C. MYERS, PH. D. Child Training Authority . I hope you listen in each Saturday morning at 11 o'clock, to that fine program on the American schools led by Dr. Florence Hale. There always is something given well worth hearing. Recently Mr. Westfall, speaking on this program, told us about the newsboy explorers of Manchester, New Hampshire. These boys meet in small groups under the sympathetic guidance of an interested, kind-hearted man called a skipper. Each lad who succeeds in memorizing a certain number of gems assembled in a booklet from the best literature wins a skipper's wheel. The skipper comes to know these boys as real individual personalities, and is able to inspire them to strive to make the most of themselves. The selections which these boys commit to memory express lofty aspirations and ideals. Learned Quotations. 'When I was a boy at school, I learned there many such quotations which have always stuck with me. Besides, we memorized whole selections from the poems of the ages. But when ray children were in the grades, in what are classed as highly progressive schools, they committed practically nothing to memory. To my hapy surprise, my youngest, now. in junior high, told me the other clay that his English teacher was having them do some memorizing of choice literary selections. He says they like it. Of course and young children like it still more. It looks as if we may be coming back to our senses, that we are beginning to realize that some things are worth remembering for a lifetime. Fads For and Against. But in our country there are fads for and against. Over a period of many years there has been. a fad against memorizing anything. In some schools it is still considered a mark of backward pedagogy to have children learn anything by heart. The cry, instead, is "Experience!" "Stimulate them. Don't bother them with remembering. Let them know where things are and they can look them up when they need them;" To be sure, the library is full of such. Yet there come times when a fact in the head is worth a hundred in the library. Thin fad for memorizing nothing has hit the Sunday school, where children nowadays rarely learn by heart any ."of the literary, treasures of the Book of Books. The first step is to select what is worth remembering. The next is to learn it by heart. Why should we not encourage our children early at school and home to become life-time possessors of the treasures of the ages? Memorizing, properly guided, is no hardship, but a pleasure and a pleasure that has permanency. Child Study Circle Hears Two Lessons at March Meeting Mrs. Kathleen Clark, Mrs. Ted Faktor and Mrs. Ben F. Randall were co-hostesses for the Central Child Study circle at its meeting Tuesday at the administration building. Mrs. G. Kiester read and discussed a paper on "Inferiority Complex" and Mrs. L. Faggerly spoke on "Jealousy and Anger." Lucy Ann Randall played two piano selections, "Pretty Little Song Bird" and "The I Battle Hymn of the Republic." Following the program the evening was spent socially. Tea was served with Miss Hazel Coon and Mrs. Vinnie Christiansen presiding at the tea table. Pastel shades were carried out in . the decorations. There were 20 present. 2 New Books Topics for Department Mrs. Edith Naylor Speaker at Last Meeting Held at Hanford. Reviewing "Facing Two Ways" by Baroness Shidzue Ishimoto and 'The Exile" by Pearl Buck, Mrs. Edith Naylor of Clear Lake spoke .0 the Woman's club literature department at its last meeting of the year Wednesday afternoon at the ianford. " 'Facing Two Ways' has an attractive title because of the apparent contradiction, and it is a fortunate selection because the author writes a story of her life as she stands at the crossroads in Japan today," Mrs. Naylor said. "She was brought up in the ritual and ceremony of old Japan and she married a liberal and became a figure in the progressive movement of that country." Stumbling Progress. "The book gives the stumbling and tortuous progress of a woman trying to climb up to western civilization and continuously held back by the past. The first part of the book, dealing with her childhood and youth bring the greatest de. light to the western reader. We find in it an escape from the realism of the present. "Reared as a daughter of a Samurai, the author lived in Tokyo and attended a school for children of royalty where she was taught to be a good wife, a wise mother and an obedient daughter-in-law. This training was continued in her hours outside of school, giving no time for relaxation. When she was 17 years old, she was graduated from school and three months later, her father betrothed her to a nobleman, 10 years older than herself who was studying engineering."

Mrs. Naylor spoke of the clataor ate trousseau which the Japanese bride had for hor wedding and o her early married life. The Baron ess' husband had his first job in f mining town where he took hi bride and where they lived twi years in conditions much differen from those of her childhood. Late they went to America and he com pelled her to take a business cours in New York and went off to Eur ope without her, telling her sh could follow when she had comple ed the course. Returning to Japan, they took u social service work and her hu band became interested in the na tionalist movement. He told her h no longer cared for the new typ of woman, although he had force her to become that. She gave up h work and retired to her home, bu this made no difference, so she sumed her reform work. Mrs. Nay lor pointed out that the author's SEVEN personal problem Is overshadowed by the national tragedy of Japan. " 'The Exile' by Pearl Buck reads like a book of fiction, although it is classified as biography." Mrs. Naylor aaid. "It is the story of the author's mother, full of wisUullncss. hardship and tragedy. So wide were her contacts and so rich her experiences that there are many people in it." Married Missionary. Describing the Dutch ancestors of the heroine, Carry, who settled in. Virginia, Mrs. Naylor told of Carrie as a young girl, desirous to devote her \vhole life to God. She wished to become a missionary but her father opposed this idea, but she married the younger brother of their local pastor after a brief courtship fitch consisted of exchanging mu- enthusiasm for missionary ork, and set cff with him to tiina. 'Of her seven children, four of hem were buried in China. She la- ored for righteousness and cleanness and fought for the lives of er children and for her own life, ut of her own experiences, came er ready sympathy for women. "Readers will appreciate America ,ore after realizing the contrast of hina presented by Mrs. Buck in he biography of her mother. It is very sad story and its theme, Jis ·i true of most of Mrs. Buck's work, the continuity of life." /Irs. E. C. Chamberlin, Mother of Well Known Plane Pilot, Succumbs DENISON, f.T -- Mrs. E. C. Chamberlin, 67, mother of Clarence :hamberlin, widely known airplane jilot. died at her home here Wed- lesday after a two day illness. She suffered a gall stone attack two days ago, physicians said.

Members of the f am- ly today sought to locate the son, who is 'in the south. He was last heard from when he wrote his mother several days ago from Port Arthur, Tex.

Another Stumbling Block in the Web of Evidence the Police Were Spinning tistics show that many infections have occurred from this seemingly innocent practice of paring corns. Simply go to your druggist and get some Ice-Mint, rub a little on any painful corn or callous. The pain promptly disappears and in a short time the corn or callous will loosen and lift off easily -- root and all-- leaving the surrounding skin in a healthy normal condition. This, together with the fact that Ice-Mint quickly eases such troubles as sore, tired, aching, puffed or burning feet and makes them cool, easy and comfortable, is probably the reason for the hearty endorsement given it by druggists. To rid one's feet of every hard corn, soft corn, corn between the toes or painful callouses in such a pleasant and safe way makes it seem the height of folly for anyone ture threads from spoon (240 degrees) over stiffly beaten egg whites, add nuts and vanilla and boat until very i stiff.

Shaved maple sugar may be substituted for granulated sugar in custards, blanc.mange and pudding sauces. In making ice cream, use two cups maple syrup in place of one cup granulated sugar (to one and one-half quarts cream). Pour the hot syrup over two egg yolks and cook over hot water about eight minutes. Add the cream and a dash of salt and freeze. You may use half milk and half cream. Go to Des Moines.
