FRIDAY, MARCH 28, 1947 We the Women BY RUTH MILI.KTT NEA Staff Writer A woman reader wants me to write, a column she can put In an envelope and mail to the parents of the young kids in her nclglibor- hyod. Though she -has complained of tlie noise they make and told their parents to keep thcm out of hf>1 ' J ' al ' u ' tne ki(!s sU]i bother her. She is parlicu- larly upset because two children helped Ruffi Itlillefi limn selves to some of herllow- s. Well, I'll-write tile piece, but if 11 Bets mailed to anybody In that reader's home town, it will m-ob- ably bo (o her. There Is someone like her in almost every neighborhood. Their lawns are too beautiful to be trampled on by the feet of children. Though they may 1,0 able to tolerate n loud radio and the din of traffic, the shrill voices of children at piny set them wild CULTIVATE KIDS So all that I can say (o the woman who doesn't want to be annoyed by neighborhood youngsters is this: You are lucky to have children living around you. Give them half^a chance, and they'll help make a human being of you. Instead of complaining la their parents the next time they come in your yard, offer [hern cookies and get acquainted. The genuine liking of the kids In your neighborhood would do far more to bring some beauty into your life than an unmolested flower garden, cultivate .the kids for awhile—and forget the flowers. Oranges were originally a pear- shaped fruit about the size of a cherry. Half Moon News Mrs. Charles Wliltcheacl ot Jonosboi'o spent a few 'days us guest of Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Peoples.
