, 'Ann, 9, HAL lOYLI'S COLUMN ARK.) COUNTER NEWS Frank Leahy Finds Great Coaching Job in Eight Children of Own Home "Your greatest coaching Job i. Leahy treasures that tribute n e has a theory thai children as well as football players require proper 'raining. ^|IIls theory was worked out mag- nificemly on the gridiron. In nine years at Notre Dame his football teams have won 71 games, lost nine and tied seyen. His parental coaching seems to be working out just as well in the home. He and his pretty red- haired wife, Flossie, and" their eight youngsters make a fine family team. They have five sons and three daughters ranging in ase from 15-year-old Prank Jr.. to seven-weelc-old Christopher. "Flossie is one of eight children and I am one of eight," snid Leahy "And before we got married we decided we'd have eight ourselves. "I think we are the luckiest couple in America. And we're still on the offense. We'll have more children." I bad a pleasant Sunday afternoon visit with the Leahys in the bi» brick home nt Lon? Beach on the south shore of Lake Michigan One after the other Ihe J,eahv Welcome Is Wished children came in and wished me welcome, a ritual they observe with all callers. V'All Notre Dame football play- W, are taught that when they meet a person they should look him tn the eye, pronounce his name clearly and address him as 'sir,' " said Leahy. His children do that, too, although one of his daughters told him recently, "daddy, really, that isn't necessary for a girl to do. It's too formal." Leahy, who is now being taught the polka by this particular dtifc'h- ter. grinned as he recalled her objection. "I may be old-fashioned," he said. "But I think respect, obedience and courtesy are disappearing in too many American homes. We want our kids to learn these things." Curtain Chores Given Each of the Leahy children Is given certain chores and duties to periorm. Every night after dinner they and their parents say the family rosary together. "About every two w?ks I line them up and grade them on five points '— neatness, courtesy, re- BDectftilness, co-operation and un- ^ishness." Frank said. "The Dinner gets an extra allowance. "They enjoy the competition and I believe it makes them better." As to punishment, the Leahy household has one flat rule: :"if you've done something wrong and come and tell us, there'll be no hairbrushing." Hairbrush Is Instrument The hairbrush is the instrument of discipline and Frank wields It. "The spankings happen only once In a great, great while." he said emiling. "It works better now to ration fhetr rights to watch television." The Leahy home-coaching ~~sys- is in your own house." tern may sound formal and old- fashioned, but it works wonderfully well. His chfldren are happy, spontaneous, and secure. Frank is very affectionate toward them. As I started to leave, he turned to 5- year-old Jimmy and said::: "Jimmy, will you tell us your favorite wish?" Red-haired Jimmy looked up and piped:: "I wish the whole world woujd Pop up to Heaven!" He thinks he's got the greatest dad am! mom in the whole world. So do Ihe olher Leahy kids. And the reason is that the whole family prays, plays and works together the way old-fashioned families used to do when having eight kids wasn't stich a rarity. The Leahys want to have as many children as they can. As another friend ot Frank's once observed:: "He never was one to hold down the score."
