ACTIVITIES, AIMS OF GIRL SCOUTS TOLD OVER KGLO Juliette Low Learned of Activity From Similar Group in England. .Activities of the Girl Scouts nd the purpose of the organiza- ion were outlined Thursday night iver the North Iowa forum heard m KGLO In a question and ans- ver discussion between Mrs. Curtis Amen and Mrs. Carl Fick, he latter the Girl Scout director lere. Juliette Low was the founder f the organization, learning of hat activity from Sir Robert Saden Powell in England where he girls are known as Girl [uides, according to' the discus- ion on KGLO. Mrs. Low returned vith that idea to her home at Savannah, Ga., and initiated the movement in this country. Girl Scouts' minimum age is 0 years and when the young girls join this organization, it gives them an activity, supplc- ncntary to the training of the lome, church and school, the 'orum discussion brought' out. 5irl Scouts have 52 different ac- 'ivities. . "Scouting teaches girls the lappiest way of combining outdoor activities, skill in homemak- ng, patriotism and community service," answered Mrs. Fick to a query by Mrs. Amen. Among the duties a Girl Scout mist learn are making hospila' aeds as well as ordinary ones earning the Morse code, cooking sewing, how to read trail signs and how to administer first aid as welt as how to pitch a tent make a lean to, and build a fire of wood which may be damp, the discussion revealed. MYERS WONDERS ON JUSTICE- OF S O C I A L O R D E R DR. GARRY C. MYERS, PH. D. Child Psychologist. When 1 think of the thousands of fathers and mothers and children who right now need medical and dental care, but for lack of money cannot have it--though there are scores of self-sacrificing doctors and dentists who give hours and hours of service without pay, and they must live, too-I wonder about the justice of our social order. When I contemplate (he slill larger number of parents and children lacking adequate medical and dental care, not because' of limited money, but' because they do not sense the need, then I wonder about the shortcomings of our public education. When, moreover, I consider the many adolescent children and of .wives and husbands, especially of wives, who yearn to have medical and dental care they sorely need, and avoid 'even mentioning the matter In their family for fear ot being considered by some other member of the family as selfish and extravagant, or for fear of being crushed emotionally, I--well, what shall I say? Mother Neglected. Generally it is the mother of the family who is most likely to go neglected. Her experiences seem to train her to submit serenely and to exercise self-sacrifice excessively, even when there is above- average expenditure for all other items of the family budget. Think ot those scores and scores o£ mothers who, suspecting a serious affliction creeping upon them, will postpone suggestion that they ought to. see a doctor. The outcome? Sometimes it is prolonged suffering or untimely death. Tragic letters come to me--and they almost get me down sometimes-from mothers of this sort; and from adolescents, too. There's so little I can do! In this'column I think I have never quoted from a letter that has no signature and address. Today I break this long-honored rule, to print the following, for the good I hope it may do. It is signed, "Worried." Health Worries. "Dear Dr. Myers: I have a problem that lias been worrying me /or about two months. I am counting on you to advise me. I think I have tuberculosis. I am 15 years old and very much underweight. I am 5',4 feet fall and weigh 95 pounds. These are my reasons for believing I have tuberculosis. I have to clear my throat a lot, can't sleep very well, am underweight, weak, a little nervous and have not any too good appetite. ... I have never told my mother about my belief. I dont think she would believe me. ... I worry quite a lot over this and wish you could tell me what to do." Answer: Not being trained in medicine I could not give you medical advice. But do tell your mother and beg her to take you to a good doctor. If she won't, go yourself and tell him your story. He just couldn't have the heart to turn you away, whether you have money or not. How I wish your, mother had a more sympathetic understanding of you, and that you felt you could freely talk to her about anything. --o-Hostesses to Society. ST.
