(AP(—Teen-age automobile drivers are learning in school courses how to do a better job behind the wheel. Nearly 8,000 high schools, 40 per cent of the total, offered either classroom or classroom and practice driving courses. A total of 662,370 or 43 per cent of those eligible, participated, according to a report issued by the Association of Casualty and Surety Companies covering the 1D50-51 school year.

Emotional Honesty Can Help Children LOS ANGELES (API—Don't rep rimand little Johnny If he say that he hates baby brother, says a University of California psychologist. , Dr. Nora- Weckler. - a member of the university teaching staff, says this may help oJhnny cultivate emotional honesty. Telling Johnny that he Is naughty for talking like that and that he should love baby because he Is his brother may only cause Johnny to disguise, rather than change, his true feelings. If Johnny Is allowed to get his anger out of his system without fear of punishment, his parents will be able to know how he really feels and be in a better position to help him feel differently, Dr. Weckler said. A short quote from a recent NEA feature story Is worth a few minutes contemplation. The words were spoken by a woman whose address is Philadelphia Home of Incurables, she has been bedridden for H years. What she had to say that is worth your attrition is: "I ve learned that doing things to make others happy has great rewards for the one who takes the trouble." It's those last seven words that are worth thinking about—"for the one who takes the trouble." For in (hose words is, the key to doing things for others. It is almost always trouble to do things for others. It is almost always trouble to do something for someone else. It usually Involves work, often It involves changing our own plans. Sometimes it involves sacrifice. In short It means taking the trouble to do a thing. We Always "Mean Well" Most of us have many charitable impulses, many flashes of insight as to things we might do for others. But going ahead and acting on the impulse, following up the flash of Insight—that's a different story. So It is often easier to tell ourselves that we will do it later. That right now Is a most inconvenient time. That we probably won't be quite so busy next week or next month. And so the chance to do a helpful thing slips away, often we regret not following up the Idea alth direct action after it is too late. When we get an idea for doing something for someone else, In- tead of putting It off for a more onvenlent time, or finding some ither reason for not doing It let's emember what Mrs. Mary O'Conner has had time to learn. That here are great rewards for doing things to make others happy if wt are just willing to take the trouble. American Films Hit As Danger to Morals JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — American-made "gangster films", £ war pictures and motion-picture cheese-cake may go off Indonesian screens—If two promiment Indonesian parliament members have their way. Dr. Soenario, chairman of parliament's Foreign Affairs Section, wanted the government to ban films glorifying war and "a certain political ideology". He feared these films hampered the establishment of world prace In general and the pursuance of Indonesia's independent foreign policy in particular. In addition he pointed out that Amerlean gangster films endanger ua-- tional morality. Smallest Bible HALIFAX. N. S. Wi— James William Bradley has what he believes Is the world's smallest Bible. Measuring only five-eighths of an inch square, with 500 thin pages, it. was printed for the Oxford University Press in 1859 and presented to Bradley for good school attendance In 1897.
