LENOX TIME TABLE. LENOX. IOWA You Must Govern Self Before You Can Guide Your Offspring Young Follow Example Set by Parents, Psychologist Shows. "He's a chip off the old block," yon •ay, little realizing, perhaps, how squarely you are hitting the nnll on the head. According to an article In the Parents' Magazine, "Not only In matters of temperament can the origin of a child's problem be traced to the parent but in the realm of attitudes there Is very often a definite relationship." "The major problems of divorce, discordant homes, widowhood, Illness and other serious situations are reflected in the maladjustments of the children," in the opinion of Helen Sargent, supervisor of the psychological clinic, Northwestern university. Admitting that the roots and branches of such problems are so far reaching that cnch requires extensive study and individual solution, Miss Sargent declares: "There arc many loss apparent connections between the ways in which adult members of the household choose for meeting their lives and certain trends which appear in youngsters." Hlgh-Tensioned Mother. The psychologist calls our attention to the "little terror" in the home, whose mother lias boon warned he lias a nervous temperament and must not be ovcrstlmulated. She follows expert ndvice to the letter—makes him rest before going to bed, forbids him exciting radio programs, etc. But Sonny continues to grind his tseth, toss In bod, to "raise caln" in general during the day hours. Miss Sargent asks us to watch his mother In action: "With studied quiet she asks him to stop banging on the table while she Is telephoning, then in a voice tense with annoyance tells the grocer what she thinks of the peas he sent yesterday. She arranges a simple routine for her son but herself rushes from one task to the next, creating an atmosphere of crackling electricity wherever she moves." Mother, Daughter Egocentric. Dorothy's another example. Miss Sargent points out the poor child simply can'? or won't make friends and it worries mother. Yet mother confesses: "I nevar have liked mauy people . . . When I'm with a group, I always wish to get back home . . . I. don't miss people ... I have my family." Miss Sargent's theory Is that if mother Is to find out what's wrong with Dorothy, she must search her own character. "Mother must deter- mine why her life has become so egocentric that she Is content to do without friendly contacts that are a vital part of the life of the average human being." The article clears up n number of points which must puzzle plenty of parents. Its theme song is, before you try to guide your child, you must be able to govern yourself. You must meet your own problems and find a solution or you simply can't map out the program that will benefit your offspring. BEDTIME STORY By THORNTON W. f I Glittery Buttons Add Luxury Touch L1GHTFOOT FINDS A FRIEND A S LIGIITFOOT the Deer stood resting and trying to recover his breath out there on the little sandbar In the Big River, his great, soft, beautiful eyes watched first one bank and then the other. On the bank he had left ho could see two black-and-white specks moving about, and across the water came the barking of dogs. Those two specks were the hounds who had It Is Doubtful Which Was the More Surprised, Uightfoot or the Man. driven him Into the Big Illver. They were barking now Instead of buying. Presently a brown form joined the black-and-white specks. It was a hunter drawn there by the bark- Ing of the dogs. He was too far away to be dangerous, but the mere sight of him filled Lightfoot with terror again. He watched the hunter walk along the bank and disappear in the bushes. Presently out of the bushes came a boat, and In it was the hunter. He headed straight toward Lightfoot, and then Lightfoot knew that his brief rest was at an end. He must once more swim or be shot by the hunter in the boat. So Lightfoot again struck out for the shore. His rest had given him new strength, but still he was very, very tired, and swimming was hard work. Slowly, oh, so slowly, he drew nearer to the bank.

No Speed Law and but Few Paris Motor Cops; Result: Tarls has more automobile accidents than any other city in the world, owing undoubtedly to the fact that It has no recognized speed law and only a handful of motorcyle po lice.

This Is tho greatness of this earth, That grcntnness counts not wealth as worth Nor title the Important thing. For men, what task they may pursue, Are measured by the good they do, Not by the profit It may bring, Tho measure of man's brotherhood Is merely being greatly good. Tills is the greatness of the great, Whether they nobly lead the state Or nobly teach a village school; That they more happiness have brought By noble principles they taught Than those who poorly teach or rule. Both shall be judged, as heaven would, By whether they are greatly good. © Douglas Malloch.—WNU Service. gers there might he there he did not know. He had never been on that side of the Big River. He knew nothing of the country on that side. But the uncertainty was better than the certainty behind him. He could hear the sound of the oars as the hunter In the boat did his best to get to him before he should reach the shore. On Lightfoot struggled. At last tie felt bottom beneath his feet. He staggered up through some bushes along the bank, and then for an instant it seemed to him his heart stopped beating. Right In front of lira stood a man. He had come out into the back yard of the home of that man. It is doubtful which vas the more surprised, Llghtfoot or that man. Right then and there ightfoot gave up in despair. He couldn't run. It was all he could do to walk. The long chase by the lounds on the other side of the Big River had taken all his strength. Not a spjirk of hope remained tp .ightfo'of. He simply'stood still and rembled, partly with fear and lartly with weariness. Then a surprising thing happened. The man spoke softly. He advanced, not hreatenlngly, but slowly and In a 'rlendy way. He walked around back of Lightfoot, and then straight oward him. Lightfoot walked on a 'ew steps, the man followed, still alking softly. Little by little he urged Lightfoot on, driving him to- vard an open shed In which was a pile of hay. Without understanding ust how, Lightfoot knew that he had found a friend. So he entered he open shed, and with a long sigh ay down in the soft hay. © T. W. Burgess.—WNU Service.

With the time and materials for making candy, there Is no sport that can be more entertaining. For those who have no taste for the making of it, candy can be supplied in countless varieties even in small cities, at prices which are not unreasonable. English Toffee.

MYSTERIOUS KNOT T HIS Is a very deceptive trick that can be performed with an ordinary handkerchief. The magi clan holds the handkerchief by one corner. He raises the lower cor ner; then shakes it loose. The movement Is repeated, the free hand always bringing up the loose end. Finally, on the third shake, a knot appears In the lower corner of the handkerchief. You must prepare for this trick by tying a knot in the upper corner of the handkerchief. That corner Is held hidden by the thumb and fingers of the right hand. After twice raising the lower cor ner and shaking It down again, simply change the ends. You retain the original lower corner, while the knotted corner falls. Done smoothly, this completely deceives the onlookers. They will think that you actually shook a knot Into a corner of the handkerchief.
