Grandma's Role Today More Complicated Just a few generations back when a mother became a grandmother she knew Just how to play her new role, because she knew what was expected of her. Today the role of grandmother, like every other role a w o m a n plays, Is more complicated. ttnth Millet* Once grandmother's advice was respected, today it Is more likely to be resented, Once It was assumed that if grandmother were left widowed she would naturally go to live with one of her married children. Today there is widespread distrust of that simple solution. Once it was generally accepted that when a woman had reared her children her life's work was done.; Today more and more grandmothers are supporting themselves wholly or in part. The able-bodied grand- mother who slt« down and expect* to be supported by married children Is mensural by the grandmother who is matter-of-factly earning her own living. Spoiling Grandchildren Is Resented Once it vns taken for granted that a grandmother didn't need friends and a social life of her own. Now older women are urged to hnve tVir own social lives. Once a grandmother's spoiling of her grandchildren was accepted as natural. Now It Is likely to be bitterly resented by the children's parents. So today's grandmothers—just like today's young wives — are finding that they are on an uncharted course. There hasn't been much written to guide them. Bui a new book just published by Association Press, called "Ill-Laws Pro and Con," by Dr. Evelyn Millis Duvall, has a chapter called "Mother-in-Law as a Grandmother" that throws a clear light on the problems and satisfactions of being a modern-day grandmother. Any mother, newly turned grandmother, who Is as anxious to bo as good a grandmother us she was to be a good mother, should find that chapter in Dr. Duvall's book both sympathetic and eye-opening.

Germany I* — West German newspaper cartoonists lire having fun lampooning government, claims that the future German army will be "democratic" In Its discipline and drill.
