Proper 'timing* important For your child's growth The "teachable moment" you sometimes hear about regarding chi'd-en's development is n matter of right "timing." It means tint at n given time c'Oii.litinn!-, nn- ji'st ; i»!<i. for a child t i iea n ;i pirticula- tisk. At this time, he will be mo e receptive t'nn at any other time. For ex- amp'r, yon may try to toilet t'-ain your toddlir for several weeks without success. If you recognize that perhaps he is not ready for this learning and wait a 'LAV week, he may gain conti ol vo. y quickly. Hut p -opcr tiitvng refers to mo-e than just physical develop rnent, according to Nancy Lysen, Iowa State Unive sity extension as.sociate in liuinan development and family relationships. I'e 'haps mo e important is Riving the right emotional boost at the light time. This may m< an giving your 2 year old ino.-e fi ccdom when lie begins to chafe at his "linvts." or giving your 9-year-old a little extra renssnrnncc when things didn't go ju.,t right at school. But. how, you may ask, can I tell what my child needs when? Your job. as a parent, is to read the clues your child Rives in his bchctvii" 1 . Thin you help smooth the w:iy in the direction these clues point. You iir.'st also reali/e fiat there is no universal "timetable" for children. Kach child p-ocieds at his own rate of g.-owth and de volopnv-nt. Therefore, the amount and kind <r help need, d \;i ii s I 01 n chi'd to child and from one ":it.lgo" Of K"0«tll tl flTli'thi-.

I'-ir l:ie simple box camera with black and white film or color negative film with flash bulb, used i.i a room with the lights on: 1. Set the camera either on the "Ii" ( bulb ) or the "T" ( time ) setting. Most cameras have either a time or a bulb exposure. These settings should lx.> used so that the shutter remains open for the desired length of tirne. 2. lie sure t 10 camera is on a . .'.I !i:...t:. A I 'pod ;;-, best, but a i 'O e Up will do. Ijon'l t, y to tin (I tile came a. .'i. li your camera has change..!).'.• KM:; sittings, use the "wid- ist" setting. This setting is the .s.uiii' one you use for cUvidy days wlien the most light needs to be ail.uiUed to the film. 4. Hold the shutter open for t.V'i siconds after the bulb flashes ii you are using black and white him anil for four seconds if you arc using color film. The flash bulb lights up the room and the tree and the longer exposure will show the t:-ee lights, says Black. 5. Since p ecise time measure- rrv'nts are extremely difficult with the simple cameras, seve"al "shots" of the scene might help insure satisfactory results. TY vo'i do not plan to use a flash bulb, follow the same p^o- ci-d'i••!• except increase the time the shutter is open to three seconds for black and white film and five seconds for color film. Do not jiggle the camera in releasing the shutter. If you have people in your picture, they must sit perfectly still while the shutter is open. If they don't, their images will be blurred.

Anna Wilson claims Mystery farm picture The mystery farm that appeared in the Oct. 19 issue of the Leader has been identified by owner Anna E. Wilson. The farm is located one and one- half miles northwest of Fayette, and is owned by Miss Wilson and her brother, Dr. Q. C. Wilson of Morgantown, West Virginia. The farm has been in the Wilson family since 1901, when it wa i : purchased from Jason Paine and was then known as the Paine farm. The sisters, Misses Amy Leigh and Margaret Paine, still live in Fayette. A book "My 95th Milestone", by Mrs. Jason Paine, tells much of the history of the farm. THE 160 ACRE farm is known as the Fayette dairy farm and is tenanted by the William Leverington, Jr., family. It has been a dairy operated farm since about 1923. Miss Wilson and her mother, Mrs. Charles Wilson, operated the dairy farm from 1933 to 1942. Later the dairy was sold to Larry Farley. The house and grainary are the only original buildings on the farm. The new highway 150 cut off crosses the farm from north to south and the Peoples Natural Gas pipeline crosses the farm from east to west. The Leveringtons practice general farming, and raise Guernsey cattle. Little Chats on Public Notice "John Doe Announces" (No. 8 In a Series) As a social item a Down East weekly newspaper some time ago reported that "Robert G. TJ. . . • announces the marriage of his mother, Mrs. Florence S. N. . . . to Mr. Harold H. H " etc. In itself, this was not unusual except that the announcement was made by the son. Ordinarily such announcements are made by parents, if living, or by a brother or sister, if any. Long established custom has decreed other kinds of personal and social announcements. One of the most common of these is • a birth announcement. Another is when an engagement occurs or, in business and professional life, when a partnership is formed or there is a move lo a new location. These personal announcements are somewhat on the same order as public notices which are provided by law. Only there are many more kinds of the tatter and they often concern or affect more people, particularly where their rights or interests are involved, as is usually the case. Long experience has shown that the newspaper of paid general circulation is the best general medium for public notices. The bona fide newspaper gives wide coverage and at minimum cost. This is why the laws of all 50 states provide for many kinds of public notices to be given in this manner. The public notice is part of due process and helps to contribute to the democratic process. ^ Open Hearings ( No. 9 In a Series ) It is basic to the American way of doing things to require most public business to be done in the open. Some things such as crime detection and certain aspects of national security require degrees of secrecy. But in the main the principle of "openness" is a good and long established practice. One means of insuring that th" public is kept informed is to provide for open hearings. This is so that members of the public may attend such hearings if they wish. In any event, such hearings on public matters are often open to the press and the radio-TV so that the public can be kept informed of developments through these media. The policy of open hearings on matters that concern the public is closely related in principle to the equally important one of public notice. Such notices affect the community at large, various corporate or other interests and, especially, individuals. These notices are a means of safeguarding various rights and to be put on notice is one way of protecting those rights. The bona fide newspaper of general circulation is a long established medium for such notices as provided by law or by official designation. This is only one of the many public services provided by the newspaper. In principle, the publication of such .notices is also an important part of the American way. ^ r 0 Thanking the Doctor ( No 10 in a Series ) A New Knglnnd weekly newspaper regularly carries cards of appreciation which a'-o somewhat unusual. They are entirely voluntary, of course, and are from recently discharged hospital patients in gratitude for the care and attention they received, particularly from their doctors. One of these read: I wish to thank Dr. P. ... G. . . . for his professional services the many times I was in the hospital for treatment. Also to my niece, Mabel, who so willingly and graciously cared for me both in the hospital and at her home. Also the nurses who came to my bedside with a bit of cheer. May God bless and keep you all. Estella McF. . . . Such notices seem to be quite common in the paper in question. It has been published regularly since 1R7G in a coastal summer resort town of 2200 although the paper has a press run of 3200. This indicates a much wider readership than the town population, an important factor in connection with paid newspaper circulation. Whether local medical societies would approve the widespread use of this kind of voluntary public notice might be in question. But this homely story proves two things: the grateful sincerity of the former patient and the reliance of the public upon the bona fide newspaper to "spread the word." It is no accident that the law not only permits, but in hundreds of situations ^requires that public notices shall appear in newspapers of paid general circulation. lo each of our valued friends in this community we send greetings and our best wishes for a happy Noel DON VANDERSEE PLUMBING AND HEATING Fayette, Iowa Rare We bring you a gift, wrapped in friendship and with •e, to express our wish that you have i merry, happy •May season.
