tlon to recall their own childhood.
! they need not have been so late In
, ! discovering what to nil who under
. stand children Is an obvious fact
. i The child mind ns complex as the
. ! adult’s —? It would be safer to call
, It more complex. In many lanes of
knowledge and thought that are fa
miliar and well charted to the
grown up, the child moves In a con
stant fog. He hns hardly catalogued
a thing In his mind when something
happens to upset his theory and
leave him In the dark about what It
Is all about Scarcely have doubts
' on an Important principle of life re
solved themselves Into d»flnlt«
: knowledge, than an adult contra
diction lo action or speech, an adult
hint or patronizing smile, sends him
floundering again.
A child has so many ideals, so
many hopes, so many wonders and
j questions on which he forms con
clusions which bring dlsappolnt-
I meats and doubts and disillusion,
j that he Is In a constant labyrinth
of thought, up one alley and down
| the next—usually. It must be said,
after some adult who doesn’t know
where he Is going, but doesn't care
so much ns the child! For the
! child’s very world depends on the
! answer to these thoughts. The
adult's world Is formed—and how
ever well or badly he may be adjust

i la up against.
■ | Far be It from me to paint adults
ias sure of life or ourselves. But
> there are many things we know,

der and guess. And about the
things that leave ns as floundering
i and helpless as tbe child, we at
least know that we cannot know!

HOW TO*\_
shoott
By Bob Nichols
BSK hoot ins Editor. Field and Sir ran oat
VO MAN can hope to become a
i> very good wlugshot If be lays
his gun away ten months in the]
year and takes It out again only
when the autumn gunning season
rolls around. Especially In his de i
veiopment stage, the hopeful shoot- !
er needs practice the year 'round
Much of this practice can be what
la teemed “dry shooting." That Is.
mere practice Indoors with the gun
empty.
“Dry shooting" will materially
help you acquire good form nnd
si>eed In your gun mounting. Keep
your gun standing handy In a cor
1 ner of your room, where you can
snatch It up for a few minutes’ prac
tice In the evening before you turn
In. Keep all shells for the gun un
• der lock and key where children, or
’ grown-ups with children’s minds.
can t get at them. Never slip shells
5 In your gun In the house. To do i
so Is to Invite tragedy I
Grab up your gun for a few m!n- ]
utes each day. Not more than two
or three minutes at a time, for prae 1
i tlce does you little good If you con
Untie after your arms are fa- j
i tlgued.
. Practice mounting the gun to
your shoulder. Get so you can do !
- It swiftly but gently. Never Jerk
’ It up spasmodically, or Jam the but?
- bard back Into your shoulder.
Bring It up smoothly, pointing It
1 Instinctively at a spot on tbe wall i
1 paper as It comes up to your fact
' and in to your shoulder, then giv
Ing It the finer aiming adjustment
Just as you pull tbe trigger. Keep
- both eyes open and see how grad
I ually It becomes easier and easier
: to point the gun accurately with the
I full power of your two-eyed vision
t Push the gun stock In close to your
• face so It won’t be Decc»snry to tilt
your head too far over to look down
» the barrel. Your gun butt should
• rest clear In on your shoulder, clear
t in the the base of your neck—never
i out on the arm.
Don’t snap your hammers. You
j may break a firing pin. I’ut the
I safety on. You can practice pull- j
■ j ing the trigger Just shout as well
- j this way.
Stand erect as you practice. Not
i stiffly like a ramrod, but easily
i erect Keep your head erect and I
. vour chin down. To tuck in your
r bin before you mount your gnu
» nay prevent you from getting the
> lad habit of craning your head and
■ neck out over the gun stock when !
‘ you shoot. Get the habit of keep !
■ ng your chin tucked In as you bring
• your gun up, and you’ll find that
> your barrels come up Into easy
aligament much quicker. Mount
, mg yotir gun with chin tucked In Is
[ s simpler movement Doing it with
, the chin sticking out results In n
. -ompound movement your gun
> omes up and your chin comes j
» down. Frequently they do not meet ;
it the same point. Your head may ]
! oe craned out too far over the stock
i >f the gun. When this awkward
■ -drain Is Introduced, the shooter
• | frequently raises his head an In
stant before firing and up goes his
gun muzzle and he over shoots.
With your chin tucked snugly In
vour face soon burns to assume »
i fixed shooting position. Face and
gun stock no longer try to “find
I each other In the dark.” The hands
having been taught their duty, bring
i the gun stock up Into the aecus
tomed position, w'here cheek and j
eyes are all ready waiting to take
> possession of the finer adjustments
i of the aim.
Hunters who haven’t yet learned
to assume correct head position be
fore bringing the gun to shoulder
julte often get a bruised cheek bone
They blame the pun. Usually It
isn’t the gun’s fault at aIL
Good shooting form—and good
shooting, too —results from a syn

“Sensitization Diseases”
Found Largely Inherited
Hay fever, asthma, eczema, food
idlosincrasy and similar minor dis
eases caused by excessive sensltiv
ity to certain pollens, dusts, foods
or other common substances have
heen found to be Inherent family
weaknesses In 33 per cent of 7.000
students studied by the University
of Michigan health service.
Since 1030 complete medical his
tories of 7.000 students entering the
university have been registered and j
checked for accuracy by parents
of the students, according to Dr
Buenaventura Jiminez In the Mich
tgan Medical Society Journal.
It was found that 12 per cent of
these students had previously had
hay fever, rose fever, asthma or ec
zema. A second group, 22 per cent,
reported having had urticaria, gas j
tro-lntestinal upsets, food Idlosyn !
crasy, frequent "colds” and bead 1
aches of the type usually caused bj
sensitization to some substance or ;
food. A third group. 19 per cent, re
ported themselves so far free from
i such annoyances, but wth a history
of sensitivity among other members
of the family.
"Although the health service fig
ures show a prevalence of sensltiza
tion diseases exceeding all previous
estimates, they are well attested
and emphasize the need of more at
tentlon to these condition*."

Responsibility
** ‘A child Is the repository of In
finite possibilities’ and comes Into
the world a potential asset to society,
as It comes In response to a universal
call, and In fulfillment of a natural
law. If It ever becomes a liability,
the fault Is more with society than
with thu parents or the child, as so
ciety has the advantage of the ac
cumulated knowledge nnd wisdom of
tbe ages, to which the child has an
Inherent right, and society, as well
as the parents nnd the child must
suffer and pay for what the child
i does not get"
This responsibility is one that so
; clety must carry. To shirk It Is no
economy. To pass It on to the child
without providing the preparation
that systematic early education will
give is to fall In our responsibility
to the past, the present and the fu
! tu re.
