Predict Early New Invasion '■
/ Soundphoto—Early invasion of Norway, Denmark and Baltic coast
Is predicted as a result of the “Big Three” declaration that Allied
armies and air forces will soon strike even more powerful blows from
the north, east, west and south. Arrows indicate some of the antici
pated moves. An attack on southern Denmark is considered particu
larly possible. This would cut off German forces stationed there.
Norway also would be vulnerable. Other arrows indicate areas ol
greatest pressure from the east and west, with the northern invasions
considered the final curtain.

THOSE DAYS GONE FOREVERj
our children are doing and committ

something about it
STOCK ANSWERS PLENTI
The subjcet is touchy. The profes
sors asd educators who have made
long and labirous studies of the pro
blem have readymade answers to fit
each question. For a while these stock
answers sufficed. But times move a
head. Still, however, the experts per
sist in what should be recognized as
an approach full of holes- “Greater
recreational facilities,” they will tell
you when asked what are the major
means with which to combat juvenilt

say, really cannot be bllamed “be

Fierce resentmest is voiced and ex

thing wrong. Everybody lives or trie*
to live strictly to himself- There is
no common consessus that the rearing
of children is a community as well as
a parental responsibility. Nothing is
done to develop this spirit of co
operation in meeting a common pro
blem- Home punishment when it is
administered, is usually the result of
personal irritation, moods and whims,
pressed at the mere suggestion of a

The collapse of morale values and
standards among Negroes in metro

effective way is being done to re

at home from mothers and fathers,
ellder sisters asd brothers. Parents
have been found who teach or allow
their children to publicly smoke
cigarettes before they are 14 years
old; and in many instanhes, children
are taught or alloed to drink wine,
beer and whiskey at a tender age
PARENTS PLEASURE BENT
The child’s life and upbringing are
subordinated to the pleasures of liv
ing and the personal desires of its
parents- The mother and father are
so busy having a good time or earn

Mr. and Mrs. Washington of
1714 North 28th St. have a garden
on 29th and Franklin Sts. and as
the reporter passed he saw Mr.
Washington using the fork while
Mrs. Washington was using the
hoe. They were both very busy
with their potatoes. Their cabbage
also looks good.
Mr. and Mrs. Fletcher of St. Paul,
Minn, visited with Mrs. Carthone of j
2622 Caldwell St. Mr. and Mrs.
Fletcher say that they admire the |
Guide very much. Mr. Fletcher was
a visitor here some years ago and he |
thinks Omaha has made some very
rapid improvements. He likes it
much better now.

Mr. L. Clark of 2807 Burdette
seems to be very busy these days.
When the reporter went by Mr.
Clark was painting his screens and
preparing for summer. Mr. Clark
says he is preparing to take it
easy this summer when he comes
in off a run. He has been working
for the Pullman Co. for 22 years
and is still going strong.
Mr. Reuben Pierce is home on
leave. He is stationed at Shep

business. She has two chickens!
and she is kept busy feeding them.!
She says that she hopes to buy |
more chickens but the children1
keeps her so busy that she don’t
have much time to look after the
chickens. Mrs. Abrams was elated
over receiving a letter from her
husband who is overseas. She
can’t tell where.
