Suggestions For Bringing Up the Child In the Way He Should Go
Every person claiming part owner
ship of a family Is afflicted with more
or losB vague theories concerning
child study. Especially thoso who have
never had an opportunity to mako a
Bystomatlc study of the suhject or a
careful observation of Its workings,
hold themselves up for ridicule when
ever they mako a public exploitation
of their IdeaB and notions of bringing
up a child in the way It should go.
The exaggerated forms of kindness and
severity which arc sprung with mathe
matical precision upon tho develop
ment of tabulated symptoms, are moBt
generally out of place and the child
Is more often hotter off without being
thus unduly disturbed. Indeed, by
such persistent persecution tho child
Ib splendidly equipped and fitted for
becoming a finished neurotic or con
sumptive. The Idea that a young child should
have an Intense Benso of responsibility
springs from a misguided and crim
inal misconception of the child's- na
ture. Let him kill tho chickens and
drown tho cats without exacting his
epldormls of scalp-lock as a penalty.
Let him burn down a neighbor's barn
If It pleasoB him Just as long as It Is
not your own. Tho barn can be re
built, but tho child's self-reliance once
destroyed can never be restored. Lot
him wander In the street If ho desires.
If ho gets run over It will do him good,
for he will loam by experience where
to travel and what to avoid.
If he shows himself worthy of. chas
tisement, take a Btlck and whack him
well. Don't shut him up In a dark
closet, where to his Imperfect and dis
torted vision terrors seem to hover
around and well nigh drive him into
fits. Neverr humiliate him by kicking
him; for more broken tarsals have
evolved from this process and more
cases of peritonitis developed, than
from any other process whether ol
law or of consecutive action. Besides
It makes the child feel like a sneak
thief or worse yet like a wooer chased
homo by a bull dog. If tho child Is
amenable to reason, then reason with
him. Show him that he is wrong and
toll him not to ropoat such actions. If
this does not avail thon get a cat-o'-nlne-tails
and go after him. Do not
gather him Into your arms and make
him feol as if ho waa being persecuted,
Give him a good meaBiire of air and
sunlight and let him accumulate a lit
tle of Morther Earth If his fancy suits.
Don't keep him within tho house with
his noso lined up against the window
screen, when another youngster sits
without and manufactures mud pies.
Lot him walit around the Iioubo at
least three timoB a day, and do not
swoop down upon him In Indian fash
ion If ho vontures within two rods of
And finally. Don't make him feel
that while In company he must pre
serve . a discreet silence and crowd
himself Into the smallest possible
space. Don't make him feci like n
criminal or like an abject being who
trembles lest a changing mood of his
lord may coBt him his life. Let him
talk a little, and do not throttle th
words In his throat. In Bhort allow
him some portion of individual liber
ty, at the same time keeping him with
in a reasonable distance of the right
path. In this way he will have a chanci
to develop at least a small amount o:
moral courage to help sustain him
through life, and no one will suffei
by it either.

German Students Exhibit Their
Skill at Chapel Today
The Llederkranz gave a good musical
program at convocation Friday morn
ing, although many could not under
stand the meaning of these German
melodies the music wns appreciated
and applauded by the entire gathering
This music was under the manage
ment of Professor Fossler. who an
nounced each selection and participat
ed In the dinging. While this was out
of the ordinary in our musical progress
It was highly commendable and wne
very interesting to those present.
The participants were the enthusi
astic students of the German depart
ment, who have learned to love the
words and music of these songs.
Following is the program in full:

Scalp "him, flay him, roast him alive
but don't kick him.
In the matter of dlot parental author
ity Bhould not seek to Impose upon tho
child's weak and undeveloped system
upon such species of manufactured
enervation as breakfast foods. Give
him onions and turnips in preference
to these or if It Is thought necessary
that he must have malt, give It to him
In liquid form. It would be better rel
ished and appreciated. And further
more the child should not be made of
ficial sampler and forced to partake of
Inhuman concoctions such as many
housewives and dyspepsia endowed
cookbooks conslpre to compound. Don't
make him a receptacle for tho failures
" in pastry mouldings or tho victim of
misnamed angel food.
