Fewer Rules and Less Nagging Will Make for More Effective System By BROOKE FETTERS CHURCH. Mrs. Jones had been lecturing Clara and ended with, "Now do you underst;ind ? " "Yes, Mother," was the dutiful reply, and then, without a pause for breath, "there's a wonderful show on tonight. May I go?" The child had heard scarcely a word her mother said, or if she had it had passed in one ear and out the other. Her mind had been on a possible visit to the movies, and for all she learned her mother might never have spoken. The child who is forever being scolded and nagged, or who is surrounded by too many rules and regulations, almost invariably will seek a mode of escape from the long and tedious sermons which he knows are due when "mother gets started." He may seem to be listening, but is probably miles away, laying plans for the future or thinking his own pleasant thoughts. The only remedy for such a situation is for the parent first to take stock honestly in regard to his or her own shortcomings. Is the child feeling hampered by too strict supervision? Are scoldings and lectures too frequent and too long ? If so, where can the limitations be safely removed, and faults overlooked? In the restricted areas to which modem life condemns most of us, children have less freedom of thought and action than was usual in less crowded times. Safety demands more supervision than was necessary even 20 years ago. But too much restriction defeats its own ends, and incites the child to rebellion or indifference. The fewer rules, the less nagging and scolding, the more effective will be the occasional necessary order. Correction, to be effective, should be short and to the point. .».

Robert Mace Gives Talk at Harding Grandmothers G u e s t s at Meeting of P. T. A. at School. Harding p. T. A. met Thursday at the school for a grandmothers program. Dr. Robert M. Mace spoke on "Sending the Whole Child to School." He said "a retarded child retards the entire room and many times this is caused by faulty vision." He compared the human eye to a camera. The eye does its work automatically, by the accomodation of the eye but a camera must have an operator. The eye controls one- fourth of all nerve force used by the entire body. Statistics show that 3 out of every 30 in the TJ. S. wear glasses. He contrasted the leisure time of yesterday with that of today. The popular pastimes were outdoor sports such as sleigh rides and the like hut today it is such eye straining play as movies and bridge. He told of a test given to TOO children from the second grade to high school and 55 per cent had some trouble with faulty vision and only 4 per cent received the needed attention. Headaches and stupidity are the first sig-n of "poor or uncomfortable vision." Harding will have its summer roundup, Thursday morning, April 19. beginning at 9 o'clock. Safford Lock spoke on "Harding's Boy Scout troop." He stated a few ;hings that Boy Scout work did for :he boys. "It instills character in them. It makes them community minded. It teaches them a usefu iiobby to fill their spare time, sometimes helping the boys to pick oul their life's work. It teaches leadership." Mrs. F. L. Curtis gave a report ol the district convention held at Fort Dodge. Refreshments were served by Mrs E. R. Skogland, Mrs. H. O. Maass Mrs. W. Easley, Mrs. 0. C. Wilhelm Mrs. Ora Theesfeld. Mrs. Sam Crawford. Mrs. Chub Lent, Mrs. F. Steenblock. Music was furnished by the kin' dergarten and second grade rhythm band.. The fifth grade, under the di rection of Helen Glassner, sang five numbers. Layon Pierce, Eleano Gaffri and Junior Stott, pupils o Mrs. Rose Valentine, played piani selections.

Here is an extremely old pieced lock that has a reputation of piec- ng so rapidly that any housewife may produce a whole quilt without any tax on her other interest. Fly 'oot was first pieced between 1785 and 1800 and called Swastika. Col- nial America followed Greek ar- hitecture in principles of decora- ion and "fly foot" was most popu- ar--thus the same fly foot had its irigln.
