PAGE FOUR—THE MORNING AVALANCHE ADVERTISEMENT in the per**• sonal column of a San Fran- dsco paper: "Gentleman with 1941 c«? desires to meet lady with four new tires; object, matrLmonv." * * » IN THE MAIL D EAR MISS TURNER: You asked for opinions concerning the apparent failure of the people to realize that the United State's is at war. Do you not think that it is pbs-. s!ble that this seeming complac-' eney might be something else? Could it not be a false optimism resulting from an effort to avoid war pitters? A happy medium is, a* you know, almost unattainable. It is logical to believe that the situation when people have recovered from the first shock of sending sons and brothers away, of reorganizing life around frozen tires and automobiles. It is difficult for people to know just what they can buy, bonds or otherwise, when the income is suddenly made uncertain; consequently, it is entirely possible that many people thus affected have purchased fewer bonds than they can afford because of a feeling that the income will be completely cut off. Certainly, though t-provoking questions like your own should help to arouse people and make them realize that a war is being fought", and could be lost with results that none of us would wish to think about just now. Mrs. J. W. Day, 1917 Thirtieth St. *• * •' CHILDREN: JITTERS TT may be up to the school to save -*• the children from jitters of the home. If parents tried to understand the emotional setup of their children, won their esteem and treated them as persons we would not be in danger of producing a generation of nervous, unstable citizens. Children should have proper food, sufficient sleep and good physical exercises if they grow up to be calm, collected persons who can meet emergencies without flying off the handle. This was the gist of a lecture given by Dr. Garry C. Myers before several hundred teachers and parents at Junior High school auditorium Wednesday afternoon. Doctor Myers, who has been teaching school since he was 16 years old and -who is a grandfather, knows as much about children and their reactions as any educator in the United States. He has taught ,feom the first grade on through «^ery grade, in college and through graduate schools. He writes a syndicated column and his words are the result of careful checking and research, not the idle mouthings of a man who hasn't keep trend with the present educational get up. . Dr. Myers seemed genuinely concerned with the emotional being of the young child. He should b« found playing baseball or other games or participating in exercise after school rather than sitting in his home with his ear glued to the radio or in a picture show. Dr. Myers said. pHILDREN should not be allow- Y* ed to listen to news reports given by hysterical-voiced commentators who aim to -play on the emotions, he said. They should be allowed to eat their meals without getting worked up over an ether program and every child should get a good night's rest, which is unlikely if he has been allowed to choose his own radio programs and has listened to thrillers which leave him trembling and afraid. If the parents do not control their own emotions, the school will provide the only haven to which rhe child may turn for emo. tional security, said the educator. Children may be told of the war, they may trace the day's happen- .ings on maps and listen to political and economical discussions but the one who discusses war matters should do so in a controlled voice suggested Dr. Myers. The only time that a parent should show emotional expression is when he discusses the type of government it is our privilege to live under, he continued. That is wholesome emotion, showing how happy you are over the privilege of being an American. Those who deal with children should pray for poise and understanding and their greatest contribution is helping these youngsters keep their sanity in an insane world, he concluded. * » » REALIZE IT'S WAR mHOSE who have said final A goodbyes to their husband and sons know that we are in the midst of a war, a young mother suggested to us Wednesday. She and her five-year-old son are just back from a Texas camp where they told their husband and father goodbye. "I wouldn't wish anyone to have the experience I have had," she said, "but still I was proud of him and glad that he feels as he does about defending his country. But it makes me angry when I read the newspapers and know that industry is being.held up because of factory strikes. I think the people are getting on the beam, again but a war cannot be won without materials." There are others in Lubbock who realize the gravity of the war situation we would like to add. We mean those persons "with near relatives in the actual fighting area of the Southwest Pacific who know the constant gnawing dread of expected bad personal new».
