Unlucky on Wheels
But civilians show no such re

riding- from Virginia back to
Washington in his own new and
shiny car. he stopped at a nctdog
stand for refreshments and park
ed well out of the road to the

less. Another motorist whooped
around the corner in a round
house curve and chewed off all
the left side fenders and a wheel
on the general's oar. That was
bad, but a week or sor later when
the restored and revarnished ma
chine rolled up to the war depart

the polo battle ground. When ne

The high ranking polo foul crar
is quite a sight when he mounts

like a breast plate on his horse's

The evil effects of such cross
purposes are apparent. Differenc
es among parents are reflected in
the confusion of ths child. How
shall he know what is worthwhile
and what is foolish, what Is right
and what is wrong? To put this
burder of -decision on ths young
child is most unfair. For during
his early years hs needs nothing
so mnch as the assurance that his
parents know what is right. If
they disagree among -themselves
the child's world becomes a wil
derness. Parents, being human, are
bound to differ now and then In
their ideas of what Is wise for
their, children. Certainty, these
differences are worthy of discus
sion. But parents most thresh
them out in prirata untn they are
ready to enter upon a course of
action that looks consistent and
harmonious to ths child,
