Small children often develop special interests in subjects which adults may think too old for them, Mrs.. Jones points out. Well-chosen books can encourage these interests. For guidance, on good" books to choose, the librarian and nursery- school, kindergarten or secondary school teachers can be of help. Among newer books which come very highly recommended for three to 6 -year-olds are: Wee Willow Whistle, The Little Carousel, Scuf- fy the Tugboat and His Adventures' Down the River, Holiday, Mrs. Mallard's Ducklings, Oley the Sea Monster, The Boats on the River, Timothy Turtle, China A to Z, Animal Hide and Seek, The Little Fire Engine, The Little Island, Linda Just Right, and When It Rained Cats and Dogs. Tried arid true story collections for parents to read to the younger set include: Told Under the Blue Umbrella, Stories to Begin On, The Two Bobbies, Favorite Stories Old and New, tind Another Here and Now Story Book. For poetry, The Golden Flute and also Very Young Verses are among the popular ones. As for records, these are always pood: A Hunt in the Black Forest. In a Clock Store, Waltz of the Teenie Doll. Hippopotamus Dance, Mosquito Dance. March of the Tin Soldiers, The Witch, March from the Nutcracker Suite, Cradle Song by Schubert, Sweet and Low, Brahms' Lullaby and many others. Take a child to a record store and let him browse among the many children's records. Mrs. Jones suggests. Then you'll have a clue to the records he will most enjoy. Look for some of the Mother Goose stories set to music. Ask the kindergarten teacher to give you some help, for she knows the records which have the approval of authorities in the child guidance field. Unfortunately, not all records and expensive albums listed for children are liked by them.

It is unlawful ' to operate a vehicle whose front seat is crowded to such an extent that passengers interfere with the driver's vision or with his freedom to manipulate vehicle controls. Overcrowding an automobile is sometimes done in a spirit of generosity and fun, and the driver doesn't realize that he's offering his passengers anything but a favor. Actually, he's placing them in a position of great danger, and he is shirking his responsibility to those who place their trust in him. The demands of modern traffic are so exacting that a driver needs full freedom to operate the controls of his car, and full vision to the front, both sides, and rear. When he forfeits these conditions which are so necessary to safe driving, he is inviting tragedy. No motorist who is aware of his responsibility as a driver will violate the state law which prohibits overloading a vehicle. Honeys vary in flavor and some may be stronger than others.

LARSON : Local Afent ISLAND LINES This is the time of year when the six to twelve year olds haunt the dime stores. They are looking lor presents for mother and father. Twenty-five cents in a boys' pocket is a' good sum with which to practice giving. It is a real experience for a boy to by-pass all the wonderful boy treasures on the counters and select a pair of pear! earrings (price '10c) for his mother. Or for a little girl to buy a knife for daddy when the fifteen cents would purchase three books of doll cutouts. We hope mother and daddy will appreciate their gifts. The money, to be sure, is wasted if we look only at the money value of their presents. Ten cent earrings and fifteen cent knives are useless. The money is not wasted if we look at the learning values for the child. He is learning to give by giving. The gift giving season also highlights the importance of a regular money allowance for a child. If he is using his own money for his gifts, he is truly giving. A regular allowance is his own money. Many children start saving 5 cents a month from their allowance some time before the holidays.
