The MATURE PARENT Self-Criticism Helps Child To Admit Mistakes By MURIEL LAWRENCE One morning In history class, Carrie Brown slapped the girl in front of her for knocking her books off her desk. As Carrie's reaction to thia accident seemed exaggerated, her teacher wrote her a slip for the principal's office, Just as she blotted her signature, she looked up and was startled by the look of excited satisfaction in the faces of her nice 8th grader^. When Carrie closed the door, the Property Sales Listed In Court Four property transfers were recorded this week in the office of Clerk of Circuit Court Joseph E. Boden. Francis J. Hayes and Mary A.

She said, "This morn- jing I called my bus driver a 'fool' for stopping to pick me up in front of a snowdrift. I have been ashamed because I know that he couldn't help this, that it was I who was the fool, not my driver. I was not angry at him, but at myself. Instead of correcting your test papers last night, I let a friend persuade me to go to a movie. I overslept this morning, got no breakfast and have twice as much work to do tonight. I told the bus driver what I really felt about myself. Have any of you lost your temper with someone else because you were mad at yourself?" Local Soldier Gets Bronze Star Medal Cpl. Charles W- Addison, this city, was awarded the Bronze Star for bravery in Korea. He received the medal in the Army Hospital at Camp Pickett, Va., from Brig. Gen. Loyal M. Hayes, the post's commanding general. Concert Postponed The current wave of illness at Fort Hill High School has caused the postponement of the annual spring concert of the junior and senior bands. Originally scheduled March 11, the event will be held early in April. It Is estimated that the United States uses about 28 million commercial Christmas trees a year. Among emotionally disturbed children, teachers often take the initiative In self-critiiism to encourage their charges to recognize help is acceptable because the captain knows he has more intimate knowledge of the shoals, currents and other harbor hazards than he has. No self-respecting captain would pay any mind to a pilot who hadn't such Intimate experience. No self-respecting child wants help from parents who haven't had some intimate experience with anger and fear. It's too bad we don't learn this soon enough to avert needless unhappiness for ourselves.

Their comments run like this: "It was one of the most helpful periods I ever had It brought to mind in school times when I felt I could hit people and yell, too ...

This device of persuading a child! to discuss his mistakes by analyzing j our own for him is an "ice-breaking" device that parents can adapt to their own discipline with .profit to everyone^ It's based on the same principle as that -which induces the captain of the Queen Mary to- accept the guidance of the pilot who brings her into New York harbor. The pilot's tioned. It's a terrible strain upon us, not to mention what it does to children. Every parent of every new baby or young child should check himself periodically for this dictatorial tendency. One word of warning on this "ice- Folks Who Say'Roger', Just Ain't On The Ball By STUART G. BAIRD INS Staff Corespondent MIAMI—(INS)—Here's a warning to flippant folks who acknowledge instructions with the Air Corns phrase—"Roger." "Roger" is passe. If you really want to be up to date, answer "Romeo." It may sound sissified, but the response will be in accordance with the new phonetic alphabet adopted by the International Civil Aviation breaking" device. It won't work if it is applied anxiously, fearfully or cynically. It won't work if we exaggerate our shortcomings or go in for wallowing in self-condemnation. It only works if compassion is our motive for using wish to reassure it, if we sincerely that human failings are pretty universal. Organization for use on commercial airlines. It seems that the old "Able," "Baker" "Charlie" alphabet practiced by American airmen in the last war for spelling indistinct words over th-s air waves is a complete failure in South American countries. A symbol ror "W" provided a tricky problem for the expens. They finally-settled on "Whisky" to make allowances for the lack of "W" in Latin tongues. It was agreed that all souch of the border pilots know what whisky is and how to spell it. ICAO has given airline personnel until Nov. 1, 1952, to master the new procedure, but the organization may have new troubles for fliers by that time. ICAO now is beginning the study of a more ambitious project an international language for airmen. English, not Esperanto, would be the basis and the vocabulary would be restricted to the minimum necessary to exchange routine flight information. Here's the new alphabet which was distributed to Pan American Airways pilots and radio operators in Miami. Alfa, Bravo.
