MURIEL LAWRENCE Johnny's mother has Just packed his winter coat away in camphor to preserve it against moths. She did this because she's seen, with her own eyes, how moths destroy wool. Unlike holes In woolen coats, moral damage ig not visible to th« human eye. We cannot see, for example, the holes bored in human fibers by anger and condemnation. For this reason, Johnny's mother may be ignoring the important lesson in self-preservation waiting to be drawn for him in the current widespread and angry condemnation of child vandals. I hope that this column will arouse her to her opportunity. And that, instead of limiting our concern to the visible property damage shown us in newspaper pictures, we will all begin to extend it to the invisible human damage they really OPENS 6:45 EACH NIGHT SHOW STARTS AT DUSK 2 SHOWS EVERY NITE!

City John Ella Perkina, City Gary Brewer, City Donna Morria, City do not provoKe it out of self-preserving impulses, but out of self- destructive ones. Let us make this point to Johnny in terms he can understand. For he is not sincerely interested in the destruction of real estate. As he owns no real estate, its value, like adult rage over its loss of value, is theoretical to him. He is, however, sincerely interested in his own comfort and sense of importance. A normal child, he has already experienced some angry condemnation and knows how it's affected his comfort and sense of importance. So when we show him the newspaper photos of damaged property, let's recall to him the damage done to him last summer by angry condemnation. Let's recall to him how hard we both had to work to help him recover his sense of ease and importance after he broke his uncle's lawn mower. Let's say, "All right, son. You remember how you felt all that week illustrate. For as parents, we should know that child destroyers who deliberately provoke such general wratb^ uncie"" Jim "kept Telling "you "Jou ' were the most careless boy he ever knew. Multiply what you felt 100,000 times. Ten you'll get just a little idea of what it's like to have a whole town think you the worst boy it ever knew. And you'll begin to sec why it's foolish to do things which attract all those angry feelings to you." We're not doing so well with our demands that children respect other people's property. Perhaps we ought to change our approach. Perhaps, instead of asking people who aren't ready to care about property to show respect for it, we'd better ask them to start caring about themselves. That way we make the cause of preserving our community's real estate the cause of our child's own wood's, is with her now.
