EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE YOUTH WEEK BEING OBSERVED HERE Family of Pigs Adopted by Dog CHARDON, Ohio, (UP)--A dog has been mothering--perhaps fathering--his name is Bud--eight little pigs at the home of Emory Skinner, near here. When the mother deserted the squealing porkers shortly after their birth, Bud, a Spitz, owned by Skinner, assumed charge and has been guarding them. Skinner moved the animals into the house, where Bud, maintaining his vigil, allows neither strangers nor other dogs near. One Twin Missing;. WICKFORD, R. I, (UP)-Mr. and Mrs. Thomas J. Dailey were a little surprised recently when their tenth child, a girl, arrived alone. On three previous occasions, in 1928, 1930, and 1932, Mrs. Dailey had given birth to twins. All 10 of the Dailey children are living. "BABY" B ETWEEN "Today" and "Tomorrow" lies the pathway oÂ£ "Growing Up," along which baby must travel, holding tightly to the hands of dad and mother, depending on them to strew this pathway with roses, roses of health, wealth and happiness, so that when "Tomorrow," the end of. the trail, be reached, baby's future is secure. W HAT better way can be had of insuring more time with baby, time for his airing, his bath, his education, time for the thousand little attentions that baby needs, than by employing the many services of Lyons Launderers and Dry Cleaners. Remember that it's very easyj;o rob yourself and baby of one or two days in every seven. LYONS LYONS LAUNDERERS AND DRY CLEANERS PHONE 600 "NORTH IOWA'S LARGEST CLEANERS 25 AND 35 2nd ST. S. W.

The first year of life is probably the most important because it is during this period that the baby grows fastest and undergoes the remarkable development that transforms him from a helpless little being into a baby who laughs, plays, stands and tries to talk. Not only does a baby grow a great deal during this year, but he learns a great deal. He learns to eat and sleep at regular times and to eat a number of new foods, to hold up his riead, to sit up, to stand, and possibly to walk; he learns to handle objects, to reach for them and pick them up; to know what various things around him are used for, such as spoon, cup, bed. ball,.blocks, and to use some of these without help; to know one person from another; to know and use a few words. He learns also whether crying will get his mother to pick him up whenever he wishes, or whether crying is useless as a means of etting her attention. He learns to be part of a family group and to accept new experiences every day. Baby at Birth. At birth the average baby weighs about ' 7 pounds and measures 20 to 21 inches in length. He hs a good pink color; he squirms and wriggles when handled,' pulls up his legs, stretches them out, clenches his fists, puckers his face and cries lustily. He sucks and swallows food and sleeps. He has no habits at birth. Habits are formed only by doing the same thing over and over again. Immediately after birth he will begin to form habits, which, if they are the rig kind, will .be useful to him all his life. Regularity from birth on is of first importance. Through training in regularity of feeding, sleeping and elimination (emptying the bowels and bladder) the tiny baby will receive his first lessons in character building. He should learn that hunger will be sat isfied only so often, that when he is put into his bed he must go to sleep, that crying will not result in his being picked up or played with whenever he likes. He will begin to learn that he is part of a world b ger than that of his own desires. Â·The Baby at 4 Months. If parents watch the b Girl Scout Members in Celebration Mrs. Frederick Edey Head of G. S. on Committee. Girl Scouts throughout the. country are taking part in the first celebration of national youth week, April 28 to May 5, when attention is fociissed upon the boys and girls of the nation. Mrs. Frederick Edey, national president of the Girl Scouts, is a member of the youth week committee, o f ' which Walter W. Head, president of the Boy Scouts, is president Youth week is a development of boys' week, which was inaugurated by the Rotary club of New York City in 1920. The movement grew until 1933 when boys' week was observeU generally throughout the world. In many cases it was expanded to youth week. This year the national committee changed its name to the na-~ tional youth committee for the United States, and it was recommended that, as far as possible, communities make their observances joint affairs for girls as well as boys. Programs Adapted. Gi r l Scout activities are well adapted to the program which has been outlined for the week. This program suggests a youth recognition parade or an achievement exhibition for the opening day, the second day observed in the churches with sermons of special interest to young' people. An explanation of the purposes of youth week was to be made from the pulpits. Other suggestions for the week made by the national committee include vocational"" day on Monday, with groups of girls and boys visiting industries in their own communities, and perhaps taking over for a few hours the operation of one major industry, such as a newspaper, department store or factory. Tuesday will be devoted to health, Wednesday to entertainment and athletics, Thursday to schools, Friday to citizenship and Saturday to an out of doors program. Stimulate Adults. The program for this day should be planned to stimulate adults to a realization -of the importance of providing properly equipped playgrounds or capably supervised hikes, canoeing end fishing trips, camping or similar out of door activities for young people, and to provide healthful recreation and real knowledge of the joy of coping with natural difficulties in out of door life. A manual containing suggestions for each day's program may be obtained from the national youth week committee for the United States, at 211 West Wacker Drive, Chicago. 111. for signs of development they will see marked changes during the first three or four months. At four months the baby will be round and chubby; he will have nearly doubled his weight and have grown two and one-half to three and one- half inches in length; his head will have grown about two inches in circumference. At four months his muscles are getting much stronger, as is shown by his more vigorous kicking and his efforts to turn over and by the fact that he can now hold up his head steadily if his body is supported. The four month old baby looks about, discovers his own hands, begins to recognize his mother and perhaps other members of . the family, and is learning to reach for objects around hir*- He makes known his likes a;"! dislikes by gestures and fr-cial expressions; he usually haJ begun to laugh aloud, -"h four short months he has changed from the little wriggler to a baby with definite individuality. He has already begun to form nabits of daily living, such as feeding, sleeping and elimination. The parents must see that these habits are the right ones.
