What Sumner expects TO produce this roar is not known, but the Pirates won't soon forget the 7 to 0 spanking ' nc >' received at Sumner's hands last year. Offense and defense will both come in for a brushing up this week, with pol- j This same committee thought that inner security and self-confidence should be developed early in the child. This goat they felt could be achieved through the study of music, nature and social problems in 4 -H Club programs. It was felt that young married and rural youth groups need more the form of planned use of income, education on housing problems in goals and investments.

SchOOl NeWS- Training in crafts, hobbies and abilities to take leadership in community activities was suggested to make more profitable use of spare time. Community Production The Community Development and Public Problems committee asked that more information on the cost, maintenance and source of funds for roads and schools be included in the 1949 extension program. Farm folks also are interested in the improvements of rural- urban relationships and suggested jointly sponsored meetings on mutual" problems. Continued study of developments in landlord-tenant relationships and further expansion of discussion groups on international relations, agricultural policy, family life and cost of living were suggested. Though it did not receive special emphasis, the production side of farming was not left out. Farm folks want more information on the use of sprays, particularly as ! to the harmful effects of sprays on |'necessary insects and wildlife, j They also asked for a broad edu- j cational program in land use and I soil conservation, weed control and j livestock production, specifically j mentioning feeding, breeding and control of insects, parasites and diseases. 145. 135 FAIRXESS AND FIRMNESS MEAN GOOD DISCIPLINE Farm Folks Offer Extension Plans Iowa farm folk* want their children to :ro\v up. not only technically trained to make a good living, but also socially prepared to serve their communi'ies. and work for a cause. Farm folks representing all sections of the state have indicated • hev thai is what they want the 1949 Iowa State College extension program to include. The group, making up an advisory committee on the extension program planning board, help extension officials decide the trend that the program will take. The 13 farm men and women are into three suocornratttees: Living and Youth. Cam- Development and Public ?. and Production and civiciea Family jr.unity Problerr Marketing. Youth Program The Family Living and Youth committee concluded that "as a chain is no stronger than its weakest link, so a nation is no stronger than the family. To have a strong nation, morally and economically, we- must have an educational program that develops the family in all its phases." Of course, there's no hard-and- fast set of rules when it comes to child discipline. There's no bag of j tricks. But, says Mrs. Alma Jones. : Iowa State College child develop- j ment specialist, some basic devices | may be an aid. j Remember that if punishment for j misconduct is to bring the desired • results, it must be prompt. The at; tention span of a young child is ; very short. Mrs. Jones explains. : Don't wait 'till Johnny has forgotten his misdeed to punish him. If ; you do, he won't understand why . he is being punished. And the effect you wish—guidance toward : more desirable conduct—will be • lost. The result may even be ; worse than if there had been no ; punishment. If it's to prevent similar actions ; in the future, punishment should j relate in some way to the misbehavior. When there's a tantrum, taking the naughty child away from the group is often the best plan. This helps him see that the other children don't like his ae. tions. Spanking isn't a cure-all, in Mrs. ; Jones' opinion. In fact, it should be | as rare as medicine in the life of a ; well adjusted child. Use it only to prevent wrong conduct and in emergency situations or for younger , children who can't understand , rea«on. ; Punishment that is too severe ; defeats its purpose. It encourages :a childyto lie to protect himself. It may make him fear his parents and ; finally rebel against their wishes. ; Promptness and certainty in punishment are better than severity. (Continued from page 1) girls glee club has been divided into two sections in order to provide an opportunity for as many girls who wish to participate in a music activity.

That's the day Governor Thomas E. Dewey. Republican presidential nominee officially opens his campaign with an address at Drake stadium in Des Moines.
