FOOD SHOP Child Will Find Cutting Things Happy Pastime One of the easiest and most absorbing amusements of children is "cutting out." Sometimes it is paper dolls, sometimes pictures for" scrap books, but whatever it is, most children use scissors at some time or other. To many the fun comes late because the management of scissors is considered both too difficult and too dangerous for tiny tots. In point of fact very little things of three can be taught to "cut out" if someone will take the time and trouble to do it. While mother is doing the family mending she can show the baby how to hold scissors and, at first guiding his hand then merely giving occasional help, or a word of instruction when he is too wildly off the line, she can succeed in teaching him to follow broad out- 'ine. 14 Children in 16 Years.

CLEVELAND (UP) -- The children of the nation--who suffered mental and physical ills-were the real sufferers of depression, in the belief of Dr. Henry C. Schumacher, widely known Cleveland psychiatrist and director of the Child Guidance clinic here. The result of such suffering has been an increase in child delinquencies and problems, Dr. Schumacher pointed out -in his annual report to clinic trustees, On Relief Bolls. However, in the cases of children of persons, who. even in prosperous times, were on relief rolls, a decided improvement in mental health is shown, he said. "The depression brought stability to this group. Relief wag certain--there was increased food and stability, and since the neighbor next door was on, relief too, the contrasts vanished," the psychiatrist said. Mental Disturbance. In the group of persons on the verge of becoming dependent, there, has been the greatest disturbance to children's mental and physical well-being, according to Dr. Schumacher. He said that open rebellion against 1 parents was evident, with boys taking to petty stealing and truancy. He added that the same situation has been true uf the "comfortable" group, made less comfortable by depression. "There has been great disillusionment among adolescents. They feel they have been let down by society, their established ideas rudely shaken. I have talked with .many who express a definite fear of growing up." Dr. Schumacher said.

Knitwear, toddlers, creepers, dresses, bibs, underwear and other goods are maintained In this department. 'Progress, evident in all phases of life. lias also made its appearance in infant wear. There is a far cry between, the garments worn by a mo'd- ern 193-1 baby and the infant of 1875 as there is between the clothes worn by the grownups. The latest trend in infant and children's wear has been to de- . sign and make the garments in such a fashion that they- will make the least possible work for mother. Clothes are made with the idea of having the child don them himself at the earliest possible moment. To do that they must be simple and easily put on. All of these things have been uppermost in the minds of the D. K. Lundberg company n maintaining an infant department. Found Mother After 24 Years.
