Scratch p4a for ami at thte aftW PARENTS A3 EDUCATORS Tha Call of tha Clock By Nelia Gardner White Dear Mother: Have your children ever said "I can't come just now, Mother I'm busy with my blocks!" No doubt the building of blocks was at that mo ment very important, more im portant than we ran realize. But more important still should be the response to the demands of time. Some of us are martinet always insisting on the accomplishment of a p-wen task at a given time, till our children come to look upon time as a relentless, hateful giant. I think a great deal of the slothfulnesa of this world come from that arbi trary insistence that thing be done on time. The things hated in child hood are gladly cast aside a soon a maturity come. But isn't there some way to make punctuality and a well-ordered life a beautiful and desired instead of a dreaded thing? F'or it is beautiful. Time is not hard and relentless; if it is used rightly, life beeomes smooth, peaceful and hanpy; if used wrongly, life is a tangled mass of folks who always had to rush to get to places on time who rushed to get their meals ready who 'Vshrd about their cleaning and their sew ing. It is an unlovely quality. It i near'y always when von come down to the fact the result of prev iously not having done thing on time. Their clothes weren't in order for calling the dishes needed weren't clean their materials had not all been purehaed for the pro posed aewing there wasn't any aeouring powder on hand for scrub bing. Not one f us wsnts a child to grow tip to be that kind of a Person, who neither givea nor gets harnineaa. However, that state Is only a nst oral one, arising from a failure to appreciates the importance of time. It is tic, the 'rusher' who has the most kdsure time. It is the one who Anen each task a it comes, doe.' it thoroughly, Irare nothing forf'aonve other time.' Of course we'ie all only human and we all hav lapse, btit it's just in so fr aa ws meet duties unafraid and will ing! that or work become easy, pllaaur instead of dred MONEY to LOAN on FARMS and RANCHES Can handle some good brick building loans. Loans closed promptly. F. M. MADDOX Lubbock Stat Bank Bldf. Lubbock, Texas But how ran we get nir children to see the importance of this? First, I think, emphasis should be placed on the pleasure that accompanies that instant response to the call of the clock. The "Come this instant or you won't get a bite of supper!" i only too common. It seems to me it's only fair, while the child is young, at least, that he should be told that supper time is near at hand, that shortly he'll be called in from play. Perhaps you can let him know of something he likes that's going to be for supper. You'll find that he comes much more read ily when it is time. And soon promptness becomes a habit, pleas ant habits cling to us. Why not work to make into pleasant habits all necessary duties that have to be observed through life? Wonderful result come' from the expenditure of a little patience and time. Von can nave a game of g-iing-to-bed time, and exploring trip of Mr. Soap of wash-up time and an inde pendent, j-rown-up event of dress ing time. Punctuality really isn't hard if we ran only remember that the accomplishment of thine at a certain time is what w-e desire, not the accomplishment of thing be cause we order them done at a cer tain time. Let us keep this leon in our mother consciousness if we want our children to become men and women whose lives are smoothly peaceful, ordered so that thejr may find time for thing that make for culture and soul-growth.
