Daughter Leaves Home for College: Dean Offers Parents Some Advice Gotesburg Register-Moil, Gafesburg, Friday, Sept. 13, 1963 If " ";• a.: By DR. JEAN LIEDMAN—Dean of Women, Monmouth College Yes, Dad, your darling daughter is off to college. Have you seen Art Carney in the play, "Take Her, She's Mine?" Oh, there's froth and sophistication to hold the audience, but much truth in the closing lines: "I can see now, it was just a question of growing up," the father sighs. To which his wife adds, "You know there were times when I never thought you would." Truly, Dad, you and mother will get practice in growing up as daughter "cuts the family ties," "strikes out on her own," and "leaves the nest." You've been running interference long enough. College is the testing ground for the. rapidly changing world she'll need to face. Even though you've been told many times that college is no longer four years in a country club atmosphere, you may be a skeptic. If you've been "reading along" with daughter as she dug into those books for summer reading: Fromm, "Man for Himself"; Read, "Philosophy of Modern Art"; Gamow, "One, Two, Three, Infinity"; Golding, "Lord of the Flies"; Heilbroner, "The Making of Economic Society"; Conant, "Modern Science and Modern Man," you are aware of a change of emphasis, a seriousness of purpose. Youth Accepts Challenge Be assured that most high schools have been preparing your son or daughter for this, and that today's young people, at least a majority of them, delight in the challenge. They have youth, resiliency, and, given encouragement, drive. Note the enthusiastic response to the Peace Corps program. Dean Licdman So they're off to college to grapple with ideas, to grow emotionally and spiritually-as well as intellectually. What part do you play? YOJ pay the bills, become a good "listening post," and an anchor for stability. Let's consider a few ways the maturing process can be speeded up by you. Your daughter won't need her entire wardrobe or an elaborate one. Most residence halls have limited closet space. Upperclass girls enviously meow, "You can always tell a freshman.

Status Symbols Change But clothing won't give her status. Neither will talk about her car, a ranch or summer home. Most schools do not permit freshmen to have cars. Students are usually keen in evaluating—status will be given on other grounds. Is she a good housekeeper? There's maid service, but clothes scattered around the room will be a clue for the maid to by-pass that room. If disorder reigns, the house council may take away a date night. Does she make her own bed, wash and iron her own clothes? If she isn't used to the routine, she's in for a rude awakening! Did she keep hours during the week while going to high school? Most colleges and universities expect this of first-term freshmen, and Monmouth is no exception. Upperclass girls, those who have had experience, believe a routine (Continued on page 18) Miss Blust- (Continued from page 10) for display, were Debbie and Denise Tucker. The bride-elect's wedding and reception will be Saturday evening, Sept. 14, at 8 o'clock in the Methodist Church in Williamsfield.

Main Galesburg Shopper Rating, Lesson Topic For HEA Unit Mrs. Everett Taylor, the new home adviser, gave the major lesson when members of Homemakers Extension Association, Unit 2, met this week in the farm home of Mrs. Alice McKmley near St. Augustine.

Plans were completed for Christmas boxes to be mailed to the missionaries. Miss Iris Holmes led devotions following singing of hymns by the members. Mrs. Fern Williams led in prayer.
