Dwarfs, or "midgets" as people sometimes call them, have fascinated people since ancient times. In many royal courts there used to be dwarfs, kept there for the amusement of the royal family. And one of the most famous draffs of all time, General Tom Thumb, was seen by millions of people. His real name was Charles Stratton, and he was less than 40 inches tall and weighed 25 pounds at the age of 25! People may be very tall or very short and still be of normal height. Too much or too little growth is usually caused by disease or by the way certain glands do or do not work. Generally speaking a person's height is due to heredity. In Africa, tribes such as the Watussi and the Massai have many men seven feet tall. This is normal height for them. At the same time there are pygmy tribesin Africa, where the people are only about four and a half feet tall. This is normal for them. The giant or dwarf whose height is not normal usually has some disorder in glands called the endocrine glands. The endocrine glands influence growth. The pituitary gland, the male and female sex glands, the adrenals, and the thyroid gland all can influence how tall a person will be. There is a kind of dwarf where the head and the trunk of the person are normal in size, but the arms and legs are short. This can ae caused by a disease. The way a normal body skeleton increases in length during childhood and adolescence is that cartilage is changed into bone at the growing ends of the bones. Diseases of the cartilage could prevent the JiffyKnit Pair 559 WUfl* Start early — knit this cozy pair now for the first cool days, or 'or Christmas gifts. • Jiffy-knit pullovers— just what tpddlers need to top off overalls this fall.

The child grows during the I first few years and then stops. His proportions remain childlike. Such a child can be helped by giving him hormones. Giants are more rare than dwarfs. Giantism results if certain cells of the pitutitary gland are over-active in childhood. FUN TIMK The Kiddle Box 1. What bow cannot be tied 2. What falls often but never gets hurt 3.

BIBLE MtKKOKS PRESENT NEW YORK (AP) - Juvenile delinquency was a problem in Biblical times much as it is today, Edith Deen says in a new book, "Family Living in the Bible," published by Harber and Row. She writes: "Sons who disgraced their parents, father who failed to train their children wisely, daughters- in-law who made life bitter for their husbands' families, a headstrong daughter who ran into trouble, a son who boldly married a girl against his parents' wishes •all caused problems between parents and children in Biblical times." HISTORIC FUNERAL STORY HUTCHINSON, Kan. (ff) -,.. A historic 163-year-old edition of the Ulster County, N.Y., Gazette, owned by George Hooper, has an account of the funeral of George Washington. The Jan. 4, 1800, edition of the paper was brought west by his grandparents when they settled at Atchison, Kan. Now Hooper has inherited it. Hooper hasn't decided what to do with the old newspaper but has considered giving it to a museum.
