Mrs. Walter H. Beckman Addresses
District PTA Meeting Wednesday
In a challenging speech at the
District 10 meeting of the Florida
Congress of Parents and Teachers,
held at the First Methodist Church
on Wednesday, Mrs. Walter H.
Beckham urged her audience to
“broaden their horizons.”
She contrasted the living condi
tions in the United States with
those in Europe and Asia, and the
wide differences in housing in the
She told of families with sqven
or more children living in one 1
room hovels, the effect of physical;
environment on the child, and ask
ed what kind of citizens would
come from homes like these. She
urged teachers to go into the hom
es of their pupils telling them it
would be invaluable in helping
them to understand the problems
of the children.
Mrs. Beckham went on to say
that the home maker has more
time to give to broadening her
horizons through community ser
vice, but she also told them that
American families were losing
their closeness; that there was a
lack of working together as a fam
ily. She said that fathers and mo-j
thers who “don’t have time” to lis-;
ten to the confidences of their chil-'
dren; who haven’t “time” to take
a boy fishing, or to help daughter’s
Scout Troop makes cookies are
missing one of the greatest joys of
parenthood. '
Mrs. Beckman said that she was
•*a firm believer in the saying
the family that prays together,
Mays together.” She said that
“blessed is the home with chil
dren” but warned parents not to
•xpect perfection, because, after
with.” Children should be loved!
for who they are, not for what
they do. She said that “children
need’love and security and must
have it.”
She closed by saying that no
matter what talents a woman may
have, or how successful she may
be in her business or profession,
her crowning glory is to be the
head of a home. “Nothing com
pares with the rearing of honest,
respectable and decent individuals”
•nd reminded her audience that
the makers of homes set the stan
dard and that “more men are de
feated by lack of a purpose than
•re ever defeated by the lack ofi
• talent.”

dress, Mrs. H. E. Cunio. was in-1
