Sympathetic Adult Can Make Life Easier for the Exceptional Child By BROOKE PETERS CHUKCH Sidney was not popular among other boys and was secretly disturbed by it. He was an only boy in a family of girls, and until he went to school had played chiefly with his sisters. They were good sports, and the games they indulged in were quite as rough and tumble as boys' games would have been, so no one thought of possible difficulties until Sidney was about 10, when his real BREATH OF SPRINGTIME YOUTHFUL SUIT IN SMART COLOR COMBINATION HAS ATTRACTIVE BODICE ATTACHED TO SKIRT; JACKET IS PLAIN UloDe-Uoietu Peering 10 '«»! Palttrn, 300 Film Avenue, New York Cltj . -- -- BT DIANA DAY troubles began. He was what grown-ups call a "quaint child," but what other boys, and girls too, dub "stuck up." He was quite willing to play, never told tales, and was able to hold his own in a scrimmage. But he' was in the habit of settling an argument with "my father says," and of assuming a somewhat superior attitude as 1 he were wiser and more experienced than his play-fellows. The cure for such a situation can probably be found best by an older person who understands both sides Sidney was quite intelligent enough to see his own shortcomings. He was, in many ways, years older than the boys he played with. He had read and thought and had broad contacts with adult minds, but never had learned by early mixing with small boys to keep his opinions to himself. He needed to acquire consciouslj a protective coloring which woulc guard him from the jibes and jeers of bis less developed and often less fortunate companions. They could not or would not see the real boy They felt his superiority along many lines and quite naturally resented it The exceptional child has a hare row to hoe in school life, but his own precocity should help him to understand and adjust himself to the situation. H,e must learn that the socia adjustment must come from him if he is to mix with others. A little understanding talk by a sympathetic adult should prove effective. DEAD MEN ...

Decker me-, mortal organ at St. John's church, j From the first number, "Toccata : and Fuge in D Minor," by Bach, Mr. Wade held his audience by his brilliant performance. The light, ·'Christmas in Sicily" by Pietro Yon, delighted the audience, while "Christ's Death Upon the Cross," by Bach created a reflective mood. The technical interpretation of "Finlandia" by a modern composer, Sibe- lius, was good, as was the "Pastor- ale" by Caesar Franck. "In Thee is Joy" by Bach, played with great richness of expression and the "Toccata in G. Major" by Dubois completed the first part of the program. The program closed with "Pastorale in A" by Guilmant and Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus," aranged by Whitney. The recital displayed careful preparation as well as the native talent of the organist. This recital was the first in a series to be presented by the department of religious education of the young people's fellowship of St. John's parish. Mr. Wade is a student at Cornell college ana former pupil of Marshall Bidwel, now head of Carnegie Institute of Music and one ' of America's five outstanding organists. COLORS", sn«ap-DISTINCT!
