Her class agreed that the best answer to her question was the one said, "Because to give the of the boy who somebody wanted laving to wear their brothers' and sisters' hand-me-downs." Mishandled, the hand-me-dow.n can be a trouble-maker. I know a nice old lady of 75 right this minute who takes the greatest pleasure in sister. When we consider that brothers and sisters are very competitive people indeed, we hegin to get light on the_ psychological resistance to the hand-me-down and see why it appears as in imposition or even a threat to the younger child. Understanding the cause of this youngeats' a break for always resistance, we can begin to find ways to solve the hand-me-down dilemma. A dye job that turns Bill's expensive but outgrown red sweater to brown may make it more acceptable to his young brother. Green Training School Brutality Charged BALTIMORE, (/P)— A State House spokesman said today Gov. Mc- Kcldin would turn over to the directors of the Maryland Training School a letter renewing charges pf brutality at the institution. With the letter was a photostatic copy of a memorandum with the typewritten signature of Superintendent E. L. Fletcher. The note, concerning a returned runaway boy. said: "This boy was so obviously not telling the truth that I took him by the hair of the head and shook him and told him I expected the truth. I also sent him back to isolation." The new charge was made by James E. Ryan, a former teacher at the school. The letter was addressed to McKeldin. lamming needles into a red needle i buttons and belt replacing the red cushion. If you ask her where she got it, she' will tell you that she made it from a hated merino dress, outgrown by two older sisters, and landed down to her In a state of perfect and infuriating repair. It's not so hard to understand this violent prejudice against hand- me-downs if we give some thought io it. We can't help stamping our identity on the clothes we wear, even on the equipment we use. The people who live with us and our ones on Mary's blue wool may help her little sister disconnect the dress from Mary's vivid personality and attach it to her own. Some mothers get around the problem by taking the hand-me- down right out of the family, and organizing a clothes-and-equipment exchange with other parents. Mary's little sister will have a much easier time establishing her own identity in a sweater outgrown by somebody else's big sister, instead of by over- lelongings to get to associate them \ whelming, vivid Mary. with us. So long as the clothing belongs to It's quite a little mental trick to i some older child beyond the family try and identify yourself with a ckirt or a blouse that you associate with somebody else. Though children will tell us that they object to the hand-me-down because it isn't competitive orbit, the hand-me- down is usually regarded as welcome. I can almost hear a reader grumbling to himself as he reads this, • JACOBY ON BRIDGE == »-£ Youngsters Gave The Experts Fits By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service The approach of the Vanderbilt Cup Tournament, which will begin in New York on Thursday of this week, reminds me of the sensation that was stirred up in last year's Vanderbilt when a team of young college students won its way to the final round. •The youngsters were eventually beaten by the world championship team (Stayman, Rapee, Crawford, Becker, and Schenken), but there pietche'r,""when informed of the was glory enough in winning second place. Proof that the .success of the youngsters was no accident may be seen from one of the hands played during the tournament by Miss Photostat, said, "I don't know 1 where in the world Mr. Ryan could have gotten such a thing unless he got into a boy's folder, and things in that are as private as psychiatric reports. "Mr. Ryan doesn't work here any more, you know, so I don't know •how he could have gotten a private memo, I surely won't discuss anything from something, stolen out of a record box." The letter also referred to last summer's investigation of alleged brutality and mismanagement at the school. The investigators made several recommendations but cleared the staff of any criminal acts. Ryan did not say in his letter how he obtained possession of the photo- static memo. fresh and new, their' real distaste j "Did you ever hear such nonsense? Is for having to wear clothing iden- In the good old days, there was none of this fancy modern catering to children. They had to wear their brothers' and sisters' hand-me- downs—or else!" I know they did. Before anyone writes to me to make this point, let me say that while I am sure the 'good old days" had many pleasant things to offer, I think our modern habit of. catering to the differences ,hat make children and other human beings unique and distinct and individual is one of the best things about our century. Although I think that the 19th Jentury was a fine one, I cannot help feeling that it was remarkable for its number of boys who ran away to sea and for fainting young ladies who constantly went into 'declines.." While I do not mean to imply that wearing a hand-me-down will drive Bill's brother away to sea, I do suggest that the identity of an American child is a singularly precious thing, as the strength of his country is based on respect for differences between people.

The charge was preferred by Payette County Detective Frank B. Kane and Walter J. Heuer. State Police fire investigator. They have been investigating a fire which killed James Howe Jr., 50, last May 6. Eisenberg said Howe was being detained in the Belle Vernon jail pending transfer to the Monessen jail, three miles away. Howe was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge. The Belle Vernon jail was condemned by the State Welfare Department in 1948. Eisenberg said he never left prisoners in the jail overnight. A coroner's jury ruled that the borough of Belle Vernon was responsible for Howe's death and recommended that its report be forwarded to general. the state attorney British Natives Attend Service Natives of England residing in the tri-state area attended a service of commemoration yesterday afternoon at Emmanuel Episcopal Church for the late King George VI. Beginning the service, Rev. G. Stanley Schwind, rector of St. George's Episcopal Church, Mt. Savage, read the burial sentences from the Book of Common Prayer and noted that these same words have been read at the burial of king and commoner alike ever since 1549. A tribute was paid the late king by Rev. Charles I. Kratz, Jr., rector of St. John's Church, Frostburg, who delivered the address. "We are here not only to pay tribute to a sovereign but also to an active churchmen," Rev. Kralz said. "When necessary King George lost no time in casting off the royal purple to don the overalls of the munitions worker." With a look toward the future, Rev. Mr. Schwind made a com- County Accident Report Released Joseph Hobel Jr., 20, Gilmore, was the lone traffic fatality in Allegany Injured Youth In 10-Week Coma SOMERSET, Pa.—Thomas Ream, son of Mr. and Mrs!

East properly played low, hoping declarer would go up with the ace, but Miss Turner made the percentage play by finessing the ten. It was good luck, of course, that this finesse held. What followed, however, was good management. Miss Turner saw that if East had the rest of the clubs (which was actually the case), she would need three side entries to dummy in order to bring in four, club tricks. She therefore led the jack of hearts to dummy's king in order to lead another club from dummy. East again played low, hoping that South's ace was now blank, and declarer won a finesse with the nine of clubs.
