Three years ago, almost to a

In nearly every one of these
cases the search for the cause
leads into the family circle and
blame belongs to the fathor and

much greater obligation the par

We talk about of the gift
of life. We say children
should be grateful to those
who GAVE them life. But
to GIVE implies acceptance,
implies consent. The child
does not accept life, does not
consent to It. lt Is forced on

who is attracted by the warmth

The baby puts out her little hand

everything that the baby hears.
She pushes her finger Into the

Now what does the mother do?
She gets flour or olive oil and
applies it to the burn. She kisses
the poor frightened baby and
soothes her. She does NOT SAY:

There is an old Persian proverb
which is translated thus: "Very

to her friends. She should have
a stated "day" when her friends
will know she Is "at home." On
this "day" ahe will be "spic and

herself. She can serve tea or
other very light refreshments, but
there should be nothing ostenta

never has. ln the meantime
she has been in poor circum

You can get something, I know,

he cannot afford to let you go.
Dear Miss Grey: I have
been married over 18 years,
and allow n_f husband to
play pool to keep peace In
the house. But, when I ask
him to take me to a show,
it's "Oh, I'm too tired." He
can always find a way to
take himself, and leave me
at home. It Isn't that ha
can't afford it, but mere self
