Russia's five-year plan of economy
and industrial expansion is being re

program for next year calls for an
increase in industrial output of 33
per cent, instead of about 13 pei c'uit.

$2,500,000 worth of American mrlus
trial machinery. In th" first 10 months
of this year she bought $23,200,000
worth. Figures on agticulitrai ma
chinery for the same period show an
increase from $7.000.0n0 to $21,000,000.
Among the Soviet's recent purchas
ing contracts with American firms
have been a $20,000,000 order with the
Ford Motor company for cars and
parts In the next four years, a $lO.-

motive works, a large contract, with
the Westinghou.se company, a deal for
$26,000,000 worth of equipment from
General Electric, and something lik"
$10,000,000 worth of tractors from the
International Harvester and Caterpil

Russia is now fourth among foreign
purchasers of American machinery
and she is regarded as the world s:

Often fhe causes of anger tantrums
are obscure in children. When this
is the casp. they are pretty hard to
deal with for often the cause can be
traced back to some real trouble that
seemed to make no impression at the
time it happened.
Then later on. for apparently no
reason at all, or because of some
trifling irritation, the storm bursts in
all its fury.
The mother usually thinks it is
merely a case of bad disposition—
but, if she would take a little trouble
and think back a few hours, or a day,
or even a week, she might be able to
lay her finger on the real trouble, a
cause usually commensurate with the
outburst. And knowing the habit of
the child to wait with his temper out
bursts. she can do a good bit in the
meantime to soften it or remove It
altogether. Call it bearing a grudge
if you like but specialists tell us that
some children can’t help It They
are made that way.
Anger Mustn't Be Batalnai
It’s a bad thing for a child to nurse
!ls anger. It’s far better If he gets
rid of it at once, or better still If be
never has It at all.
