This article is on "borrowing" as a habit. However, even when "borrowint," is occasional, I don't think we can be as casual as we often are. We are ultimately responsible for the return of the article our child has borrowed from the Jones youngster down the street. If we want him to continue to enoy the Jones' hospitality, we will make sure that it is returned to the home where it belongs.

' Mr. and Mrs. Ross, now living in (107 Baltimore Ave,) Dundalk, adopted William by order ef Mineral County (W. Va.) Circuit Court of scatter pins is quite apt to be Mary's urge to possess those things. The dictionary definition of the word "covetousness" describes Mary's urge most aptly. It says that covetousness is an "excessive desire for what belongs to another." Moses thundered against it along with stealing when he came down from Sinai with the Ten Commandments.

The petition for adoption was] with the possessions of their friends filed on July 17, 1948. Mrs. Pick said she did not give her consent to the adoption and received no notice of the proceedings. She contended she never intended to abandon her child. Mrs. Pick was divorced from the child's father, Robert L. Dick, in that should concern us. Why does Jimmy find Billy's toys more entertaining than his own? Why are Mrs. Jones' selections of scarves and ties more satisfactory than ours? Why does Mary depreciate ..the scatter pins she chose herself to exaggerate the v beauty of Jane's. These are important questions to answer if we are going to "clamp down" on the "borrowing" habit. I disapporve of it because I think it's bad preparation for life in'our society. We do not live in a communal community, where all property is held in common but in one whose customs and law draw a strict line between your possessions and mine.

As they will have to learn to readjust themselves and learn to find satisfaction within the realistic limits of their own possessions, 1, think we are unkind to condone the "borrowing" habit.
