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

It is tic, the 'rusher' who has the

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.
