The nearer you come Into relation with a person, the more necessary do tact and cour tesy become. Except In cases of necessity, which are rare, leave your friend to learn unpleasant things from his enemies; they are ready enough to tell them. Holmes. MEW WAYS WITH OLD FRIENDS.

PRACTICAL TRAINING GIVEN Vocational Schools Established to Make Young Wards of Government Efficient in Various Indus trial Pursuits. To make the red man a productive citizen, prepared to take his place In the industrial and commercial life of the nation Is the object of the voca tional trulnlng which has been Intro duced by Uncle Sam into all the In dian schools of the country. The chil dren of the original Americans are now being given the benefit of what gov ernment offlcluls believe to be the best vocational training offered by any school system in the United States. The new system of training for Uncle Sam's young girls Is being developed under the supervision of Cato Sells, head of the bureau of Indian affairs of the department of the interior. Mr. Sells Is giving much attention to this feature of the bureau's work and Is confident that It will produce very beneficial results. Given Practical Training. The svstem. recently devised. Is di vided Into three divisions. The first Is the beginning stage, the second the finding stage and the third the finish ing stage. During the first and second periods the training Is domestic and In dustrial activities center around the conditions essential to the improve ment and proper maintenance of the home and farm. The course outlined In the prevocatlonal division Is unique in the fact that In addition to the regu- Cato Sells. lar academic subjects boys are required to take practical courses In farming, gardening, dairying, farm carpentry, farm blacksmithlng, farm engineering, farm masonry, farm painting and shoe and harness repairing, and all girls are required to take courses In home cook ing, sewing, laundering, nursing, poul try raising and kitchen gardening. This course not only prepares the Indian youth for Industrial efficiency, but at the same time helps them to find those activities for which they are best adapted and to which they should apply themselves definitely during the vocational period, the character and amount of academic work being deter mined by its relative value and Impor tance as a means of solving the prob lems of the farmer, mechanic and housewife. Nonessentials Eliminated. Nonessentials are eliminated. One half of each day Is given to industrial training and the other half to academic studies. All effort Is directed toward training Indian boys and girls for ef ficient and useful lives under the con ditions which they must meet after leaving school. Other subjects to which this course directs special attention are health, motherhood and child wel fare, civics, community meetings and extension work. After their long course of search, the experts of the Indian office who have been In the closest touch with this work say that they came to the conclu sion that the economic needs of all people and of the Indian especially demand that the schools provide for Instruction along eminently practical lines. To this end the industrial schools were established, In which the culture value of education Is not neglected, but rather subordinated to the practi cal needs of the child's environment In the first or primary period, spoken of before, the Indian child goes into what Is to him a strange land with .a strange tongue, strange habits, customs and standards. He is lacking that five years or so of fundamental home edu cation which most white children re ceive in our American ways of think ing, doing and living. Officials of the Indian office are much pleased with the way their new method Is working out Big Laboratory for Navy. Modern battleship building includes so many complex scientific problems that Uncle Sam's navy board Is plan ning for the construction of a complete chemical and physical laboratory which will conduct experiments along many lines. It will be used to test out new devices as well as to devise new ones. The best types of Burners to use with each of the various grades of fuel oil and the most desirable forms of hulls to be used for Vessels of all kinds are among the problems now requiring at tention and a properly equipped place for experiment In addition to these the continued testing of materials used la every branch of shipbuilding will be roncentrated In this one great laboratory. PLAN TO TEACH FLYING Uncle Sam's Experts Will Instruct Civilians. Applicants for Training, However, Must Agree to Become Officers in the Aviation Reserve Corps at End of Schooling. Civilians who meet the requirements of Uncle Snin will have an opportunity to become experienced aviators at the expense of the government, according to plans that are being prepured by the aviation branch of the United States Signal corps in compliance with the act of congress appropriating $13,000,000 for the organization of a military avia tion corps. For the aviation section of the Signal Officers' Reserve corps It is proposed to have 290 officers, graded from major to second lieutenant. Those who aspire to be officers may be taught to fly at the expense of the government Applicants must be from twenty-one to twenty-seven years old. If the can didate Is considered desirable he will be examined physically, mentally and morally. The physical test will be the same as that required for officers of the regular army who want to serve In the Aviation corps. In the mental test the applicant will be required to establish the fact that he has "the equivalent of a college education." The candidate must state In writing that if he passes his aviation test after being taught aviation at the expense of the goverument he will become an officer In the Aviation Reserve corps. Then the examining board will recom mend that the applicant be designated as an aviation student, lie will be sent either to an army aviation school or a prlvute aviation school approved by the officer In charge of the, aviation section. When he has been taught to fly he will be commissioned second lieutenant It is the intention to organize re serve aero squadrons in various parts of the country. The enlisted reserve corps calls for 54 master signal electricians, 190 flrst class sergeants, 281 sergeants, 543 cor porals, 1,381 privates, first-class, and 276 privates. These men will be ex pected to attend to the motors of the aeroplanes. An officer In the reserve corps will be commissioned for five years, after which he may be recommlssloned In the same or higher grades for succes sive periods of five years. In time of actual or threatened hos tilities officers of the reserve corps are subject to such duty as the president may prescribe. Heads of staff corps when authorized by the secretary of war may order reserve officers to duty for periods not exceeding 15 days a year. While so serving the officers will be paid the same as the respective grades In the army. OLD PAPERS WORRY CENSORS They Should Not Be Used in Packing Boxes for Shipment Through Any Belligerent Countries. If you are going to ship some old clothes to the Belgians or to anybody else, through the belligerent countries of Europe, don't wrap them in old newspapers. This is the warning Is sued by Uncle Sam. Likewise, If you are packing some thing, don't use old magazines or pa pers to fill the Interstices to keep your gifts from rattling around In an over sized packing case. Warning Is being given all shippers by the department of commerce that delay In customs Is sure to be the por tion of such shipments if they do not suffer a more serious fate. This warning is given to big ship pers, many of whom have found old pupers and magazines a cheap and useful packing material. Presence of such printed matter is a real menace to the goods. An ulterior motive is always sus pected when uncensored printed mat ter comes to a belligerent country through channels other than the pub lic post, where It Is readily expected. Home newspapers are censored by the governments, and uncensored Ameri can papers are not appreciated by the authorities In out-of-the-way corners of packing cases. AMERICAN MONEY FOR CHINA Rockefeller Foundation Plana to Spend $1,000,000 on Medical College and Hospital Buildings. t A million dollars of American money is to be spent on buildings and equip ment for a medical college and hos pital at Peking, China, Uncle Sam's commercial attache at that place re ports. The money is to be spent by the Rockefeller foundation. Some time ago the foundation took over the previously established Union Medical college of Peking and the hos pital operated In connection with It It is now proposed to build a com plete new plant for these Institutions, the plans calling for buildings for the college to accommodate a maximum of 50 students and for the hospital to provide for a present maximum of 200 beds, with possibilities of later expan sion. The hospital Is Intended primar ily to provide clinical facilities for the college, and It Is expected to be pat ronized mainly by the poorer classes. The expenditure that this project will involve is not officially stated, but it is understood that It may run over $1,000,000. Red Cross Grows Rapidly. The American Red Cross society, which Is a semlgovernmental Institu tion but has never received extensive support from Uncle Sam, increased Its membership from 27,000 to 230,000 dur ing the first six months of 1916. Its membership of 27.000 on Januarv 1. 1916, represented Its growth during the ten years loiiowmg its reorganization in 1905. In this country 80 to 40 per cent of the cases requiring charitable relief are aue to sicuneas. TRAINING TODAY'S AND SpontancDus Desire to "Invent' Is Worth Preserving. DO NOT LOOK FOR THE MOTIVE Ir.ifjulse to Create Something Unusual May Be Directed Into Channels That Are Worth While With out Being Suppressed. By 8IDONIE GRUENBERG. THE first day of father's little vaca tion It rained, so they could not go on the excursion, as planned. That gave father a chance to catch up with some reading, as everyone hud to stay indoors. The first interruption came when James brought him an odd con trivance made up of sticks uud wires and strings. James was very enthusi astic, and father patiently laid his book aside to see what was going on. "Oh, father, see how it looks!" ex claimed the Inventor, and as everyone looked on he pulled one of the strings. There was a twisting and straining among the sticks and wires, and one of the sticks Jerked away from Its com panions and stood out straight. The younger members of the family were enchanted, and the youngest said, "Do it again 1" But father failed to get ex cited. "Well, what is it?" he asked. "Oh, it's Just a machine," exclaimed James, somewhat chilled. "Every time I pull the string thut stick flies up. you see." Yes, father saw. "What's the use of it?" he queried, perhaps as much to make conversation and to encourage the child as to satisfy bis own curios ity. James had to admit that It was of no use, but maintained stoutly that It worked. Father was permitted to re turn to his book, and the children went back to their play. But James had not been encouraged. On the con trary, he had been Infected with a sug gestion that might, Indeed in the course of time stimulate him to fur ther effort, but one that would almost certainly take the edge off his spon taneity. Father, with his experience and with his feeling of responsibility, had reached the point of planning his time and calculating his energy expen ditures. He knew a good reason for everything he did outside of the or dinary routine, like reading a novel or going to a baseball game. He also knew a good reason why he followed some of his routine like hanging up his coat or Interviewing people with his back to the window. Everything he did was either the result of habit or the result of deliberate Intention. And he had forgotten that children sometimes act without motive and without purpose. One of the commonest reasons for our failure to get along with young children, und for our failure to get the most out of them. Is our attempt to To look for a possible inventiveness that may in time be turned to good use. understand their actions in terms of our own maturer motives and values. Or rather, there Is generally no at tempt to understand at all, merely a measuring and criticizing on the as sumption that their "reasons" for do ing things are similar to our own. The child does this and that to begin with Just because he has the tmpulse to move, to work bis muscles. When he Is able to handle materials with some precision he will make new com blnatlons and arrangements for no earthly purpose whatever. There Is satisfaction in the doing, as there is satisfaction in play, or in eating; but there is no calculation that leads to the adoption of means for gaining the satisfaction. In time, however, the girls and boys learn to select what they will do. They will do one thing be cause they know they will like the re sults; they will do another thing be cause it brings them some recognition or some material reward. But always there will be Impulses to try something new, something that may have a htippy ending, or something that may have an unhappy ending, but the Impulse is related to the trying, to the contriving, to the doing, and not to the possible As to Golf. It was the office of the great sport ing newspaper, and the golf editor was taking a brief holiday. In his ab sence the Inquiries from readers which the golfing man answered through his correspondence columns were handed to the racing editor. "Which Is the better course," wrote an ardent follower of the royal und ancient game, "to fuzzle one's putt or to fetter on the tee?" The turf man tilted back his chair and smoked five cigarettes before tak ing his pen In hand. Then, when he had come to a decision on the weighty problem, he wrote as follows: "Should a player snaggle his Iron, it is permissible for him to fuzzle his putt; but a better plan would be to drop his guppy into the prlngle und snoodle it out with niblick." Gaining Experience. The realest parts of our experience are those which we have fashioned for ourselves by means of experiment That experience which runs against us in the dark, in the confusion of our uncharted course, U not nearly eo val- rewards of punishments. When the child does something thnt is out of the ordinary we ore not t look for a pos sible Inventiveness, that may In time le turned to good use. So niueh of what grown-up people tin every day 1m reliul to getting cer lain rewards thnt we nre iu danger of overlooking the fact thut we would do quite otherwise If we were eutirely free. And we overlook the fact that some of the best work we our selves accompliHh Is quite devoid or any "motive" of material rewurd. Thus we get Into the habit of Interpreting ail conduct. Including the children's in relation to the question "What's the use?" But this question is quite proper, it is even necessary. Children must learn to conserve their energy and to make full use of their time ond of their re sources. The only danger Is that we shull narrow the range of "uses" that ure to guide us and our children In controlling and directing the Impulses. We must recognize that having fun solving puzzles or contriving glra cracks or whittling a stick Is quite as legitimate a motive for a child as get ting satisfaction by mending clothes or building a fence or "making money" Is for adults. It Is better for the child to be mak ing something for the fun of making it than to do nothing for luck of some thing "useful" to do. The Edisons and Fultons and Howes are rare enough ; but every normal child Is conslderobly more of an inventor than we ordinarily recognize. Most of us stop Inventing rather early in life because those who are a few years older ask the stupid Some of the best work we accomplish is quite devoid of any motive of ma terial reward. question, "What's the use?" We dis credit the inventor because he does things out of the conventional, or be cause we do not see the value of the tinkering. When he happens to make something that the rest of us can use we are likely to assume that he did the "useful" thing because he wanted us to reward him for It. But the facts are probably inverted by us. We re ward the useful results, and thus en couraged him to try again. We should do all we can to preserve the child's spontaneous impulses not "pickle" them und us the child grows older to direct them Into useful chan nels. He will learn soon enough what kinds of contrivances are worth while; the first thing to guard against is the suppression of the joy of doing and contriving. FEATS OF TURKISH PORTERS Fierce Kurds Carry Great Odds No Burden Too Great, and Their Pay Is Small. More varied, as a spectacle, than the veiled women of the Gulata Bridge are the hamuls, or coolies. Most of these curriers are Kurds, fierce people of the eastern mountains who have fallen into the low estate of selling their strength to city dwellers. I know the feats of transportation achieved by Chinese servants, by Jap anese go-rlkkies, by hill women of the Himalayas, by dusky coolies of India and the Straits, but to the Kurdish ha mal must be accorded the pulm as burden-bearer. Yonder man carries on his back a bedstead and mattress fastened on top of a great basket. The next man car ries 20 watermelons as one load. Here Is another with 24 square feet of plate glass mirror In a frame, and following him one who carries a roll-top desk, and on top of that an office chair. There must have been a furniture sale somewhere, for the next fellow bears a sofa and two purlor chairs. Now comes a hamal groaning under the weight of two kegs of white lead or paint a heavier load than his mate's more showy burden of 38 five gallon oil cans. And here comes one with ,33 wooden boxes on his back. Not all the hamals are young and strong. Here comes an old Albanian, whose load of figs bends him to the ground. As if to point the contrast two boys with huge hampers on their backs come prancing and playing pranks. Is not this next coolie carrying the heaviest load of all? On his back is a full-sized pucklng case, and lashed to It are other large wooden boxes. That Is no white man's burden. A not un common load for hamals, I am told; is 300 pounds. Is there any other city In the world where men work so hard to earn five or ten cents? Youth's Com- j panion. uuble as that which we wrest from our own purposeful adventure. Wre speak of an experienced dairyman, for exam ple ; did his experience dawn upon him suddenly like a vision? No, he went In search of it; out of numerous ex periments came experience. In like manner we gain our experience of life. The "When and Where." "When and where do you begin to train a child so that it will not tell lies and steal?" Inquires a young moth er of Nashville. The "when" Is when the child is about eighteen months old. The "where" Is located on the south side of the child when it is headed north, and half-way between its head and its heels. Houston Post Improving. The mere monologist, however clev er, Is universally voted a bore among us; the wit who wanted to crush peo ple, like Samuel Rogers, we simply would not tolerate. All this Is because we are kinder, and whether it means that we are less brilliant or not it cer tainly means that we are better man nered. ;BUCKEYE NOTES I Ksws front All Sections if tit Stati I Western Newspaper TTnlo Nws Ssrrte.
