OPSAHL CHIROPRACTOR He Over Abernetby's pi 10 to 12 and 1 to 5 is, Wednesdays, Fridays Perhaps the changes in style that seem so drastic this year aren't so unheard-of after all. It was really only a little more than ten years ago, says Lucille Rea, Iowa State College clothing specialist, that we wore our skirts 11 or 12 inches from the floor. The contrast between this year's styles and last is partly due to skirt lowering without consideration of our own proportions. Many a short woman is wearing her skirts as long as taller women, and the result is an exaggerated skirt length. In general, those of us who are tall may wear our skirts quite long —about 14 inches from the floor. But the woman who is only 5 feet tall looks better with skirts about 15 inches from the floor. Just below mid-calf is a helpful guide for any of us, says Miss Rea. The kind of skirt makes a difference too. A flared skirt may be about a half inch shorter than a narrow one. And the height of heel enters in—for a long narrow skirt, a very flat heel won't do. What to do with clothing you have on hand to bring it up to date is a question receiving many answers these days. Separate the dress at the waist, and add a set-in belt of the same color but perhaps a contrast in texture, suggests Miss Rea. Or use one dress as a tunic over an underskirt. Conceal a lengthening yoke under a peplum or wide crushed hip sash. Braid can conceal the line left by lowering a hem.

The size of your farm profits depends a lot on how good a job you do with your livestock, says Herb Howell, Iowa State College farm management supervisor. This year careful management is more important than ever before in moneymaking production. Fodder fed 'whole, chopped or shredded can be used by farmers in their grain saving program. No matter how it is handled, cattle are still getting the whole crop, says Rex Beresford, Iowa State College animal husbandman. Having rye for use early in the spring allows bluegrass to make a good growth. This lessens the danger of Injury to permanent pasture from too early grazing and from cutting of the soft spring sod by the animals' hoofs.

A young child's dishonest behavior probably upsets his parents more than anything else he does. We are paralyzed with fear for his future. Or we blaze with indignation because of the disgrace he brings upon us. _ "What will God think ofyou?" we say to the child. "What will the neighbors think of me?" we say to ourselves. We forget that here is a child who still has many things to learn. One of these things is how to be honest. The child does not inherit honesty from his parents—nor dishonesty. He does inherit an ability to learn. But he cannot learn to be honest in one lesson anymore than he can learn arithmetic in one' lesson. When he makes a mistake in his learning, we should first of all keep calm. Second, we should go on teaching him right from wrong. Teaching means explaining, not scolding. It also means practice, not punishment. Suppose a dime disappears from the dresser and we know that Betty took it. Betty is four years old. We pounce upon her, demanding severely, "Did you take mother's dime?" We scare her into a flat denial. We know she took- it. Why ask her? Why not say quietly, "You have taken mother's dime. I want you to give it back to me now." We probably will get the dime without further commotion. Next can come our teaching. "You see, the dime belongs to mother. You must not take things which are not yours. Ask me the next time you want to use something that belongs to me." Perhaps we think Betty already knows all of this. But we cannot be sure that she does at four years. We cannot expect her always to resist temptation at Ave or even six years. We must teach our lesson many times. PRACTICE IS A BETTER TEACHER THAN SCOLDING When a small child is dishonest we usually treat him as if he should know better. We scold him and perhaps we punish him. But practice is a better teacher than scolding. Suppose three-year-old Frances finds a doll on the neighbor's back porch. Of course she brings it home. It's a lovely dolly. As conscientious parents we must teach Frances not to take other people's property. Shall we scold her and tell her what an awful thing she has done? Then shall we return the doll with our apoligies for Frances? If we do, Frances does not learn much from the experience. She is confused. She probably ismuch upset over losing the doll. She may be frightened by her mother's excitement. But she is not at all sorry for she does not understand very well what wrong she has done. She has no part in returning the doll. Here is a good chance for Frances to practice honest behavior. We can explain to her, "This is Laura's doll. We always leave Laura's doll on her porch.

UNION STATE BANK, Clerk back." Then mother and Frances together may return the doll. In this case the explanation is simple and clear. Three-year-old Frances- can listen and understand because she is not upset by mother's wrath. She knows what is being done to right the wrong because she is helping to take back the doll. She is now practicing honesty. There will be many times when Frances must be shown how to practice honesty. Mother may have to repeat the lesson about the doll several times, for one practice does not teach a lesson. Continued practice will result in desirable behavior. Scolding and punishment may be convenient short cuts, but they work through fear. They may stop bad behavior but they do not teach good behavior. Practice is a better teacher than scolding. STARTED EARLY. Jimmy Sullivan, 11 -year-old boy of New Hampton, had excellent luck on his first hunting trip. With, one shot of his .410, Jimmy bagged, two pheasants., ' TWO TEETH. The parents of Linda Kapsch, of Varina, have something to brag about. When Linda was born on Oct. 28, 1947, she already had two lower teeth. Only 10 days later, Dr. H. J. Kestel extracted one of them. Not many people can say anything about visiting a dentist at the age of 10 days.
