Ylfjam J4avuortL DEAR MARY HAWORTH married five years and have cider, Don, is 3'i years, and months old. My husband was during Don's first year, and when he came home, it was to a "get-used-to-each-other" situation, which hasn't worked. Don refuses to do any thing my husband asks him to do, takes all the punishment that is dealt out to him, and defiance prevails in everything. When you think you have him repenting and .,, U.,I. !,,, .jU, ,, vu.' "c - again with a snappy defiant retort. I even sent him to a day nursery, hoping this would help, but when he comes home it's the same situation all over again. Could Strangers Help? He has always been a beautiful child and people have remarked this to hinj since he was old enough to understand. Also, he is exceptionally smart for his age, and the nursery teacher tells me he is head of the class. Can this be the cause? Does he think "the world owes him a living"? Or is he just terribly spoiled beyond our help? This situation can't go on, as I am just recovering from a serious case of nerves and I feel myself failing again. R. R. Needs Devotion DEAR R. R A specialist explains that Don's problem behavior stems from the fact that his father didn't dawn on him until he was a year old. Prior to that, the child's rearing had fostered in him a conviction that you belonged exclusively to him; just as he felt he belonged exclusively to you. Then came his father, a figure as alarming from the child viewpoint a3, Compacts or Conversation Astrological Jokester Makes Fun of Zodiac On Powder Cases By MARGARET MARA If you can take astrology or leave it alone Stanley MacNeil's zany zodiac characters and accompanying verses on compacts, titles, cocktail glasses and napkins will amuse. Intrigue creeps in, however, and Taurus, depicted as part bull and part toreador, will set you speculating about i friends or relatives whose birthdays fall between April 20 and May 20. About this comical Taurus, a ring in his nose and a scimitar in his. hand, Mr. MacNeil rhymes: "Let a Taurus have his way, for no matter what you say, He will do just what he chooses, Scoring all his F$ and Q'ses.' General Grant, the Duke of Wellington, Irving Berlin and Rudolph Valentino are listed by Mr. MacNeil as Taurus persons. ' Done in Enamel American-Elgin compacts with covers decorated with Mr. MacNeil's zodiac characters are available in Loeser's at $3.95. The design is enamel, in colors, on gold background. The verse is on the back of the compact. The characters include Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn. Cancer, June 21-July 22, is represented as a crab dressed up in a chef's tall hat. "Cancer people like to cook," explained Mr. MacNeil. "Barbara Stanwyck is Cancer," he added, "and she told me that she can never keep a took in her house. They become an- noyed because Miss Stanwyck, won't stay out of the kitchen.;' His verse for Cancer is: "One who's in the sign of Cancer Better be a dam good dancer; With the smiles that they can pin on They will always get cut in on." He Ought to Know Mr. MacNeil claims the sign of Libra, Oct. 23-Nov. 21. for his own, and the character is a jester standing on his elbows, legs in the air, and balancing scal-js on his feet. About. Libra, (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) he versifies: "Libra people love nice tilings Lollypops and diamond, rings. They are happiest when they've bought A lot of stuff they hadn't ought." A man of varied careers, Mr. MacNeil is a Scotsman and once 5 D Don, 3h, Resents aii Fathers Presence We have been two sons.

L3 FOR COMPACT COVERS Typical Interpretations of the Zodiac that Stanley MacNeil -transfers to our vanities. was a captain in the British Artny in South Africa. He is credited with first introducing shorts for sports wear to men in thp I'nitprl States. A nbvs- ical instructor at one time, he crossed this country on a walking tour in 00 days. Now, The MacNeil chooses to call himself, "Ambassador of Good Cheer" and his satirical astrological characters are hia deputies. Eaters Increase About a fourth more food Is being eaten in the United States than before the war, according to the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, U. S. Department of Agriculture. Not only is the average person eating mor than 15 percent more than before the war, but also there are many more people to eat 12 million more than in 1010. The rise in population is still under way. For some time to come, each year probably will add a million more people to the total. Even with larger population, however, consumers' pocket-books will continue to be the chief influence on demand for food. woman from overseas would be to you, supposing she arrived and settled clown in your household as though she had a perfect right there, and were fondly welcomed and shown every consideration by your husband who also backed her when she gave you orders and told you how to behave! Now, to 'understand Don's subsequent reactions to two-parent rule, try to imagine how you would feel if your total security were threatened by such an invader, and by such unfathomable goings-on. If you had normal spunk and vitality, wouldn't you fight the intruder to the best of your ability? Wouldn't you defy her attempts at authority? Wouldn't yon also develop tremendous hostility to your husband, for letting such a thing happen and actually abutting it! Of course you would, and that type of ferment has been churning volcanic-ally in Don's distracted feelings for more than two years which accounts fur the trouble you're having with him. Child It Suffering To nurse him back to normal love-related-ness to family, both parents must try to understand his behavior in terms of his feelings, since the fearful shock to his sensibilities overtook him long before the age of reason. Also, both parents must be infinitely patient, tender and reassuring in defiling with his disturbed attitudes. For instance, the specialist says: "Both parents must be wise enough to see the boy's defiance as evidence of desperate distress, for which he is nu responsible. Punishment were disastrous here. The boy's anxiety must be relieved. From his father he mu.-t have kindness, interest, steadfa.-t affection never anger or impatience and the mother must make it evident that she greatly loves the boy; that fhe doesn't favor the father more." "All this is an art," the specialist adds, "but such reassurance constantly provided is for harmonizing the family M. H.
