Just as there are different types of toys for each age level, so there are toys that serve different pur poses in each age group. There are manipulative toys, toys for physical development, balance and skill, toys for dramatic, imag inative play, toys to teach arts and handicrafts, and toys to encourage an interest in nature, science, hob bies and pets. A child needs some of each in the form best adapted to his age level. Toys for babies should be selected primarily from the standpoint of safety. They should have no sharp edges, no loose parts small enough to be swallowed. Animals with eyes glued or pinned on, toys covered with poisonous paint or made of glass or china are taboo. The best choice is something that can be washed when it becomes soiled.

Yule Record Begins In Fifth Century There is no mention of a Chris tian observance of December 25 as Christmas before the fifth century. There is. in fact, no record to in dicate what date Jesus was born. Various researchers have set the day as January 6. March 25, May 20, April 19 and November 17. In order to win Christian converts away from their observance of the pagan mid-winter festival, early churchmen induced them tb ob serve the birth of Christ Jesus at that time instead. Thus December 25 came to be established as Christ mas. Real Santa Claus A Youthful Saint The name of Santa Claus is mere ly slurring the Dutch San Nicholas, which is. of course, St. Nicholas. American children are probably the only ones who say it exactly that way. Nicholas was an actual person. He was Bishop of Myra, in Lycia, Asia Minor, in the first part of the fourth century. He was also the youngest bishop in the history of the church. From the day of his birth Nicho las revealed his piety and grace. He refused on fast days to take the natural nourishment of a child. But Nicholas was not a barefoot recluse vowed to poverty. His fa ther was a wealthy merchant, and his riches enabled him to be a dis penser of the good things of life. The feast of St. Nicholas was originally celebrated on December 6. Later, when church people in the late Middle Ages tried to suppress the festivities which grew up around the Boy Saint's day, his festival came to be associated with Christmas day. Hang Stockings For Santa Claus Why have stockings come to be a traditional receptacle for Christ mas gifts’ Although historians can give no authentic answer, they point out that children's stockings are usual ly hung by the chimney to keep warm or dry out, so it was natural that Santa Claus should pick them as the place in which to deposit g.Il in certain regions of France it is the shoe that is put out on Christ mas Eve Some authorities say that shoes and stockings were put near the fireplace for the same reason that an old boot was asso ciated with a wedding— in order to bring good luck and drive awav evil spirits.

ANSWER: A partial remedy is ’ to give the bricks two coats of a cement base paint, to be bought from a dealer in mason supplies. This is a powder to mix with wa ter. This will protect the surface of the brick only; it will not hard en them throughout. Very poor bricks should be replaced with a harder burned variety. QUESTION: I intend to put in a hew cement walk in the gangway, I and need to know the amount of j sand, gravel and cement that I ■ will need. ANSWER: There is much more to be said about laying a sidewalk than the proper mixture of ce ment, etc. For complete informa tion on laying concrete walks as well as proportions and amount of necessary material, ask the Portland Cement association, 33 West Grand avenue. Chicago, to send you a copy of their booklet on this subject. QUESTION: We had planned to use a creosote stain on a white cedar rustic fence, but understand that this would be injurious to the adjacent shrubbery. What type of paint would you recommend? ANSWER: As the cedar is re sistant to deterioration, it will hardly be necessary to apply any kind of finish unless you have a special reason for doing so. A liquid wood preservative that can be brushed on could be used in stead of the creosote, or else a good spar varnish.
