CO fc*..P* .**<» Children Expect Us To Act In Face of Human Misery Ruth Mlllett Then, mumbling As there is plenty of human misery iround, your child or mine may run Into It any day, quite unexpectedly. Several days ago I saw a small girl suddenly run into It. She loolred to be about five years old. Beside her mother, she.sat across the bus aisle from me, looking out window, so she didn't notice new passenger's arrival. The rest of us did. Hat less swaying, his face streaked with grime, he stood for a moment at the coin box, fumbling for his fare to himself, in staggered down the aisle past us, trailng behind him the smell of misery and drunkenness. 1 n the bus lurched, and the new passenger stumbled, and fell to , the floor. Across the aisle, the mother said to the little girl, "Don't look, Helen. Don't notice the horrible man." She said it sharply. Once I knew a woman with such an inflamed social conscience that she used to rush about digging up examples of human misery to display to her little boy. It seemed rather unbalanced. But to me, anyway, it would appear equally unbalanced to refuse to acknowledge misery when it practically c' jps in a child's lap. Or, li u e the parent in my bus, to define it as "horrible." For children think very highly of us. They trust us. I thnik, to take horror out of their contacts with realities, not put it in. And they tend to be a, little uncomfortable around us when we are too easily revolted by realities. It has been my experience that children are happiest when they see us take action on human mls- ery we run Into with them. Sometimes, we can't. In tht position of t: Is mother, for example, we might feel It would be unwise to attract drunken attention to us and our child by trying to lift our fellow human being to his feet. But while It might be wise to juts sit quietly while others help him to his feet, I very much doubt the wisdom of calling our fallen fellow creature "horrible." Indeed, if we do sit quietly, Helen may be grateful for an explanation of 'our failure to act. "' we might say to her, "We let the gentleman behind us pick him up, not because we didn't want to help him, but because he might IK*, have believed we wanted to. He Is sick, you see, and can't tell whether people want to hurt him or help him. So we let the gentleman behind us take the chance on making him angry." Coming Events Friday Mrs. Leon Davis is hostess at 7:30 p.m. at her home to the Stitch and Chatter Club at the Air Base. yarbro PTA has fathers' night meeting at 7:30 p. m. at the school. Old cereal boxes are just the thing to protect picnic-bound sandwiches. Place them in the box, fold box end in, and you'll have sandwiches recognizable as such when you reach the picnic grounds.
