These standards may present difficult problems and frustrations to children from maladjusted homes, many of whom have already developed neurotic tendencies, and some drift toward delinquency. Thus the school unwittingly contributes to juvenile delinquency, but it is seldom a basic cause. Can you talk yourself into lame? Answer: As a rule, fame derives from a combination of doing and talking, and talking is often the more important factor. Advertising executive Bruce Barton once commented that lie had approximately 1,000 volumes of biography in his library. "A rough calculation," he said, "indicates that more of these deal with men who have talked their way upward than with all the •dentists, writers, saints and doers combined." His conclusion: "the talkers have always ruled!" Do schools contribute to delinquency'/ Unfortunately that is sometimes the case. As a rule, schools establish behavior and learning standards fitted to nor(0 1063, Kj£if Features, bynd.. Inc.) In rnlud reading an established fact? Answer: Most psychologists consider telepathy an unsolved problem of science. T. L. Engle ("Psychology; Its Principles and Applications") tells of 352 psychologists being asked if they believed extra - sensory perception to be a proven fact. One per cent replied affirmatively. Seven per cent considered it a likely possibility, 33 per cent thought it was a remote possibility, and the remaining 45 pel cent considered it an unsolved problem of psychology. MRS. PEARCE MRS.

It is a tribute to Mr. Todd's interest in the development of tomorrow's citizens that he will commit a portion of his crowded schedule to this volunteer task." Mr. Todd announced as theme for the Girl Scout campaign, "Our business is growing girls!" "This is an apt slogan for our campaign, "Mr. Todd said, "for the growth of girls through scouting in the River Bluffs council is a matter of prime concern to all of us. If the council is to maintain its services to existing members and to extend membership opportunities to those who would like to belong, it must have the unstinted support of all of us — financial as well as moral."

The Fami Seams to Me Box-Edge Decorative Pillows tfy PATRICIA SCOTT Decorative pillows very often 1 lend a final touch to finishing a room. Foam rubber forms encased in muslin can be purchased ready for you to make covers to suit your decor. The square-shaped pillow with box edge and corded trim is one of the most popular. As shown here (figure a), the cover can be made with a zipper attached to a separate strip which in turn is attached to the boxing. It can be removed easily for cleaning. 1. Measure top and bottom of the pillow and add one inch for seams. Cut zipper strip the length of the zipper plus % inch and IVi inches %vider than the depth of the boxing. Cut boxing strip the remaining distance around the pillow plus one inch for seams.

By ELAINE WEXDLER County Home Adviser FRANCE. . . . The French are some of the most interesting and complex people of Europe. They have great respect and veneration for tradition, glories of the past, are still manifested everywhere in France, and the established way of doing things, com- me il faut, properly. From the Alps to the coast of the sun-drenched Riviera, France is beautiful and there is much to see. Ait is France's sixth most important industry, and they say there are 45,000 painters in Paris, striving in various ways to capture reality on canvas. There are over 90 museums in the Paris area, and of course the Musee du Louvre is the world's largest museum in the world's largest palace, home of the Mona Lisa, the Winger Victory of Samothrace, the Venus de Milo. Paris is indeed the capitol of the world of art. Our memories of France are wonderful even though yours truly French was limited to hinkey dinkey parley voo, perhaps our trip to France is even more lasting because of the wonderful Sombsthay family. We were guests for five wonderful days with them, and they opened their home and hearts to us. Their daughter, Mrs. William Moore lives in Edwardsville and it was she whom the French lessons were taken from. Even though they say the French are traditionally reluctant to invite outsiders into their homes, not only did Mon- seuir and Madame Sombsthay open their home to us, but they also served French cuisine, out of this world. Indeed, it was the best in Europe. Eating, Major Activity Eating in France is one of their major occupations, and regardless of how hurried you might think, you are, you will not rush them. Their lunch hour, and usually their main meal of the day lasts for 2 hours. They regard canned and frozen foods with aversion, and not too many refrigerators are in French homes. The vegetables, cheese, butter and fruit "mama" Sombsthay served us were aboslutely fresh. She shops twice daily, as do most French women. They carry a basket for their purchase of their vegetables, meat, bread and' wines. We were fortunate to be taken with Madame Sombsthay shopping one day, and it was a delightful experience. A meal without wine Is like a day without sun, say the French, who with their flare of all the arts of living, have transformed the grupe into a way of life. They are the greatest producers and the greatest consumers of wine. Our muitt meal at the Somb- sthay, Dejeuner, was at noon and would start with hors d'oeurves. They were not little snacks made by spreading cheese on crackers, but real food served as our first course. "Mama" would serve the best cold meat specialities which she purchased at a Charcuterie (meat store). The delicacies from the Charcuterie were arranged on a platter and parsely used to decorate it. Thick slices of crusty French bread and a bottle of dry white wine were served with them. This completed the first course. The next course was a delicious soup-and the French women have an eye for always seeing there is plenty of stock for soup on hand at all times. Again crusty bread was served with it. Here is one of the best carrot soups we have ever eaten. POTAGE PUREE DE CAROTTES 4 or 5 medium carrots, minced 1 medium onion, minced 2 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon salt 3 teaspoons sugar % cup rice 6 cups of meat stock or water 1 cup hot milk, cream preferred I leek Place carrots, onions and leek in a saucepan with half the butter, the salt and sugar. Cook slowly 15 minutes, mixing from time to time. Add rice, 4 cups of the stock and cook slowly until carrots are well done, about 45 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve, or run them through a blender, return liquid to pan and add remaining 2 cups stock. Bring to a boil, skim, if necessary, and add the milk with the remaining butter. Serve from a soup tureen with crust of bread floating on top. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. The third course would be of the fish family and a sauce to accompany it. Sauces, like soups, are part and parcel of everyday French home cooking. The next course usually would be eggs (oeufs) — These are seldom served for breakfast, but rather for lunch or dinner. The fifth course would be the main dish and we brought "mama's" recipe back with us. CHICKEN EN CASSEROLE GRAND'MERE 2Va -3 pound chicken — cut up 1 medium onion 1 small bottle Champaign or (White sauterne wine) 1 can mushrooms 1% tablespoon flour Va pint cream yok of two eggs salt and pepper Place butter in skillet, season pieces of chicken with salt and pepper, cook until golden brown. Remove chicken, add onions and brown; add chicken to the onions and J /4 cup water and the.cham- paign. Simmer for Va hour, covered. Remove chicken, add mushrooms and flour to the gravy, and cook until thickened. Add % pint cream and' the yolk of the two eggs. Stir until thickened. Serve chicken on platter, and the gravy separately. Vegetables, were usually served with the meat dish, then the next course would be the salad, this would be eaten with French bread and usually a red wine; next would come the delicious French cheeses and then after the cheeses, would come fresh fruit and finally the coffee. Our six week tour of Europe was a big dream come true and as we have written these articles we have been reliving a wonderful experience. We have enjoyed sharing a few of our experiences with you.
