the rent John, nor John's John, and
often unlike either.."
From the teacher's standpoint the
pupil's personality Is even more com
plex. There 1m the real John; John's
Ideal John; Thomas' Ideal John; Su
nan' Ideal John; the Hchool'ti com
poxtte ol John; mother' John; fath
er's John; John's adult friend' John;
and the teacher's John. All of which
doubtless contlrms you In the belief
that John lit an Individual of varied
personality. He In. More than that,
each of these personalities has to he
reckoned with. Even John has
more than a K'lnimerlug of the Idea
that he hus nine lives. And he counts
upon his multiple personality. Often
he Is a hydra-faced actor who glories

composite of parental guidance
evolves from the factors of commun

community. Skillful adepts are these
boys and girls In pointing out the
other home variances In an effort to
pull down their own home barriers
and restrictions that suit not their
An Influential home that allows Its
children unwarranted freedom and
almost utirest rained liberty of action
Is a radical community menace. The
cry, "The simple life," or "Back to
the farm," hits a great deal more to
It than appears on the surface. In
our headlong rush to get away from
Puritanical Ideas Is It not possible
that some of us have rushed too far?

THAT HE WILL RUN
The announcement In Sunday's
Oregonlan that V. It. Fills will be a
candidate for renomlnatlon for con
gress In the second district has prob
ably Injected Into the campaign one
of the strongest aspirants for the
place yet aunounced. Mr. Kills
served the state acceptably for sev
eral terms In this position and on
that account will undoubtedly re
ceive the support of a large number,
of the voter of this district. Mr.
Kills lives at Pendleton, where for
several years he wus a lawyer of
prominence and a Judge of the circuit
court. In public ami private life his
record has lieen a dean one and his
entrance Into the race for congress
will odd considerably to what prom
ises to be a spirited contest.
