VIEWPOINTS OF PLATTSMOUTH
MOTHERS AS WRITTEN TO
REV. A. V. HUNTER.
SON'S IDEAL OF A FATHER
To be the Subject "of Rev. Hunter's
Sermon Sunday Night Third
of Interesting Series.
The following expressions from
the pens of various Plattsmouth i
mothers, were read by Rev. Hunter j
in his sermon last Sunday night, en
titled "A Mother's Idea of What a
Daughter Ought to Be," and were
used as the basis for his sermon ad
dressed to this theme. Tomorrow
night, Itev. Hunter will speak on
the subject of a "Son's Ideal of a
Father." and will prelude his ser
mon with expressions written by
sons of the city, both within and
without his own congregation.
"Our ideal daughter is as fair as
a flower from Heaven and ,is wel
comed into the home as is the sun
shine. She is as pure as a lily and
as religious as the morning glory, i
lifting her heart each morning to
heaven in thankfulness and praise.
She is as generous and righteous as
the apple blossoms, as friendly as
the nodding hollyhocks and as mod-;
est and gentle as the violet. She is
as attractive and cheerful as a scar- i
let poppy and as studious as a "jack-in-the-pulpit."
She is as saucy as a
her way the rich
-good will and joy.'
"It has long been my idea and
more so as I grow older and under
stand the teaching of God that all
daughters, whether mine or some
other mother's, should be good, kind,
moral, cheerful.' Christian girls who
respect old people and have a cheer
ful word for everyone. We must
make our daughters fe3l that we are
real chums to them. A daughter
should have her mother's confidence
and put God first in all her work
and should take her mother's advice.
She should not do anything she
knows would cause her mother worry
or tears and should not know any
thing she could not tell her mother.
A daughter should not profess reli-
ion and then slip away to dances
or go auto riding after tpwortn
League service and not stay for the
evening worship. She should have
pleasure but should be very careful
about the kind of company she
chooses. She should feel the need
of the Lord and not sit back and wait
for her mother to tell her o go to
praver meeting. She should let her
face be seen in God's house of wor
ship when health will permit. When
a daughter's prayers grow selfish or
narrow, let her read Psalm 67."
"My dream of an ideal daughter
is that she be truthful in word and
in action. To be deceitful. In my
estimation, is a daughter's worst sin.
She should have no secrets from her
mother. All her troubles and all her
joys should be brought to mother,
for then her trouble will be easier
and her Joy -increased. She should
have perfect confidence in her moth
er and a good mother will see that
s never betrayed. To be serenely
happy she should be a Christian, for
i without Christ in her-heart, she can
never know what real joys and hap
"A daughter should love and obey
mother's wishes in all things, and
trust her with her secrets if she has
any; and should ask her mother's
advice before she does anything she
is not sure of for her mother can
help her solve the problems that she
does not understand and . she will
never advise her wrongly. She would
also ask her mother to share her
pleasures for mother loves to see her
daughters enjoy themselves. When
(she goes away from home, as her
work often calls her away, a daugh
ter should write to the mother often,
as there is no letter a mother re
ceives that gives her more pleasure
than one from a daughter who is
away from home."

i before we can teach. A mother's op
portunity is partly lost in getting
her experience as we fail to take
the counsel of others. The ways of
the world make a great change in
the ODinions of people as to disci-
pline--the way they have been
taught and the way they are being
taught. Our open public places are
a detriment to the community; we
enjoy them occasionally but find
nothing uplifting. Still we give
them to our children as a tempta
tion and try to teach them to decide
for the right. The wrong is so nice
ly carried out they very often prac
tice it. To care for our daughters
today Js a problem."
"We would like our daughters to
be Christians and live close to God,
so they would not stray from the
folu. They should maka" confidents
of their mothers and keep no secrets
from them for the best friend a
daughter has is her mother. I have
faith to believe that if they live
closer to God they will be better in
the future and will live closer to
"An Ideal is a mental conception
of perfection. How I wish all moth
ers could my this of their daugh
ters: 'What I consider an ideal
daughter is, first of all one who is
devoted to her lord's work a Chris
tian.' A girl that is kind and con-1
siderate to even the poorest of our
human race and who would humble
herself to aid and assist any who
might be in neel of help. I would
want my daughter to be proud ennf
to maintain good taste, manners and
appearance; to be obedient to her
mother and loving and considerate
and appreciative of her home and
"To decide what a daughter should
be one finds that so much depends
upon the mother that it is almost
impossible to define the one without
including the other. So be it. Every
daughter is born with a God-given
conscience and upon the development
of this depends what the daughter
will be. In childhood the child is
taught in some way, presumably by
the parents, right and wrong and
in doing wrong, grieves the parent
until an estrangement arises or rath
er feelings are out or harmony and
the child's conscience becomes griev
ed. At this point character Is eith
er made or broken and upon this ad
justment depends to whom confi
dence, trust, love and companionship
shall be given parent or selfish in
terests such as following the line of
least resistance, preferring compan
ions to parents, etc.
"But ten to one the daughter Who
is held to the right kind of mother
in trust, confidence and love while
conscience is developing will put her
trust in God and keep her consci
ence In harmony with Ills spirit
when she must stand In the world
alone and all else will follow in
righteousness. She will, while young,
remember her mother's teachings,
warnings and prayers, although she
may be openly disobedient. In ma
turity she is sure mother, knew best
and will follow her precepts while
seemingly doing as she pleases. And
when vocation or marriage severs
the home ties, she is so stable in her
principles and ideals of young wom
anhood that she will lead rather
"So my ideal daughter gives her
heart and life to the Lord. Then
she is obedient, truthful, loyal, de
voted and unselfish, giving to her
mother her fullest confidence, rea
lizing that her mother is and always
will be her best frien'd."

with half of the country in the grip

been considered for augmenting the

General Ames., issued late in the day,
gave assurance to all miners that
they would be afforded ample pro

if troops had to be called out.

Mr. Bowers has a vehicle this season
that gives him plenty of opportuni

not overlook any of them according
to press criticisms received from the
other cities where he has played.
"Kiss Me Again" is claimed to be
the fastest musical comedy In the
point of speed that is entour today.
The show Is crammed full of laughs
and surprises as, well as fascinating
music and It has an accompaniment
of beautiful girls that do not general

going into New York for a run. they

No Bearing on Mexican Situation.
It was emphasized that conditions
in Mexico had no influence onf the
framing of the schedule. General
Pershing, it was thought here, had
purposely delayed visiting border
posts in order that an erroneous in
terpretation might not be placed up
on his trips there.
Washington. Nov. 28. There has
been a revival of deep anxiety con
cerning the condition of PresidentH
.Vilson, giving rise to renewed discus
sion of the difficulties of adminis
tering the government for a pro
longed and indefinite period without
an active executive. Reports are
persistent that the president is par
tially paralyzed, and that this condi
tion accounts for the established fact
that he has not walked since he was
allowed to leave his bed a fortnight
ago and that he is signing papers
with his left hand.
When Admiral Grayson, the presi
lent's personal physician, was asked
concerning the report that the presi
dent is paralyzed he replied: "I can
not say anything about that. I must
idhere to my policy of neither af
firmation nor denying reports in
irculation concerning the president's
What do you consider his general
condition?" the physician was asked.
"He is improving slowly but
steadily improving." said Doctor
Grayson. "He is attending to such
business as is urgent, but I am per
mitting him to do no more than is
absolutely imperative. I know that
hat disappoints a good many people
who are pressing for executive action
on various matters, but I cannot help
it. 1 must take this stand for J
want .the president to get well."
Doctor Grayson was asked concern
ing the report that the president is
signing papers with his left hand.

Plymouth, Nov. 2S. Lady Astor,
American-born wife of Viscount As

Lady Astor's philanthropic endeav
ors here during the last ten years
brought her considerable support, as
well as her espousal of anti-liquor
legislation, which won her a large
vote among the women. She drove
about the constituency on a speech

tention, due in large measure to
Lady Astor's nationality, her uncon
