BRISTOW--Alwyn Stewart of Centerville and Duajie Stewart of Ledyard. came Saturday to visit their parents, Jlr. and Mrs. C. S. Stewart. Duanc returned to 'his school deities Monday, but Alwyn will remain for several days. "What, is more rare than a story without a point?" "A star without a cop." And therein lies liic substance of a little conversation that gave several uniformed and plain clothcs- mcn of the local police department inferiority complexes, so to speak, about this matter of "un poisson d'avril." (Note: Maybe a Tew war buddies csn still translate that much French if they happened to have been over the pond on April l.i At any rate on the CVK ot All Fools day Chief Harold Wolfe received a beautiful 12 pointed copper star, the handiwork of Charles J. Gardner, proprietor of the Gardner Furnace company, who shaped it out of copper sheets during his spare time the past winter. "To Chief and Bo.vs." Whatever it is one calls such luck pieces, or works of art. or trophies, was what Mr. Gardner intended it to be when he gave it to "the chief and the boys at the police station." A twelve pointed copper star of such dimensions is not to be found in every police station in Iowa--or the United States for that matter. So Chief Wolfe left the star in the squad room for the men on the riight i-Jiift to inspect. And the night shift saw it. "The chiefs star is on the squad room table," said one. "Ha-ha. Nobody's gonna make an Apri] fish out of me!" countered the other. But there wag the star. "The Evening Star's in the squad room," then informed the first Mr. Pisces to the second Mr. Pisces. But the radio crooned on "I got- ta fcelin' you're foolin.' " And still there was the star. Every newcomer when told of the star had that expression the dove must have registered when Noah tossed it out of the ark before the flood waters abated. Story Without Point. Aprils upon Aprils upon Aprils tricks have been played in the squad room and stories have been told without points--but this was the first time the squadroom had ever held a star without a point-although Mr. Gardner had toiled skillfully and laboriously to perfect 12 beautiful points. "I don't get the point of all this kidding about the star without a point," said the captain, "but if I ever find the guy who tacked up the portrait of Mr. Rhesus in the. squad room there'll be another star without a cop. And there's a point to that." And there the story endeth--for it was April I. ABC WASHER "They're really a sensation.

You must see EASY TERMS By GAKKY C. AlVKRS, FH. O- Child Training Expert A mother writes: "1 have been reading your column for years and find it very helpful. I nave four girls . . . "The oldest is eight years and is exceptionally bright, according to iier school and violin teachers. Started school and violin when 5 and has done very well in both. In school in in a class where the average girl is 10; always has very high standing and always comes first in spelling in a class of 45. In violin work she is doing the work of an average child of 12 and has been in three recitals. Has no apparent trouble to learn, rarely has to study much and has a wonderful memory. Now what I am worried about is whether all this is not loo much for her. She is normal in every ivay except that she has had dreams which lately have increased to one a week. She also talks in her sleep at times. When she has these dreams she wakes up crying and shaking and very badly frightened, and is afraid to go to sleep again for fear of dreaming. She also has these terrible shaky spells at any time she is badly frightened . . . " Too Much Stimulation. I wrote this mother entreatin_ her to protect her child from so much stimulation: cither to drop her music or cut it down to a fourth, or to let her go to school only a half day at a time--or both; and by all means to set less value on her learning: successes. What this child needs is more relaxation, more outdoor fun with other children her age, and more exposure to an atmosphere of serenity. What will it profit a child to win all wisdom ami all cultura skills, and lose her physical and mental health? What can she af ford to give in exchange for rea health? Over Conscientious. Many an average or bright, oye zealous, over-conscientious higl school or college student also should be protected, and should take fiv or six years instead of four to n graduated. Some day the school and college will sec to it that these precious, but dangerous-to-themselves youths, will spread o\it their work over more years than they do. Then there will be fewer wrecked lives and more of promising youths who will live healthy, happy, useful lives. Please write me. in care of this paper, on any human problem on which you think I might give you some help. I shall answer you as promptly and as well as I am able.
