Let the Growing Boy Have His Rabbits
and Know Their Funny Habits.
By E. C. HUFFMAN, Denver Realtor.
Parenta rise in holy wrath at the landlords who refuse to allow chil
dren to live in their apartment houses.
Yet, in my opinion, children should not be cooped up in apartments,
where there is no yard in which they can romp. Growing children need
the fresh air, green grass and contact with the soil.
life in an apartment house leaves the growing boy without the ne-
seeeity of doing small chores that tend to give him the habit of work bo
must do when he is grown. This generation is inclining more and more
to the idea ot letting the other fellow do the work.
My advice to parents is, take the children out into the open. Let
them know what it is to carry in the coal after school. Let them know
the joy of digging into the fresh earth. Start the child at work in a gar
den plot in the back yard. Let him see nature at work. I^et the growing
boy have h/s rabbits and pigeons and know their funny habits.

What the Women of America Are Doing
Today to Help Keep Down Unrest
By REPRESENTATIVE JOHN MAC CRATE of New York.
We have listened to men discuss the burden resting upon officials
who administer the financial affairs of the city, state and nation, and we
have wondered what these government experts would do were they lim
ited to incomes as are the women of our homes.
Governmental officials are continually exceeding the amount allotted
to their departments and congress, too frequently without condemnation,
appropriates more. Did the average housewife of America spend what
comae to her from the family with the open-handed carelessness of some
departmental heads the unrest which we see about us would be multi
plied a thousandfold. It ia utterly impossible to calculate what the women
of America are doing today toward keeping down riot and revolution.
If eux efficiency experts in the field of government could make a
little go as long a way and could adjust expenditures to income as well
as do the women of our households, thia nation would soon see ita in-
