    Bellefonte, Pa., July 25, 1930.
Educators between closing and
opening of schools, discuss “What
is education? What should it do?
How can we form the young?” etc.
Educators should start with the
meaning of the word “educate” and
stick to that. It means “to lead
out,” to bring out of the youthful
mind that which is in it. It does
not mean to force the opinions of
teachers on that youthful mind,
Dealing with raw materials,
science and idustry “educate” those
materials, by bringing out the best
that is in them.
They seek for hardness in steel,
for resiliency and wear in rubber.
They don’t try to make rubber of
steel, or steel of the rubber. But
that is exactly the process applied
to many young minds.
And for that reason, in reading
the biographies of many successful
men, you find that their first proof
of ical ability was their ability to
evade the processes of education.
And the greatest good fortune
was an irregular education, or none.
Washington says Secretary Mel-
lon will devote his vacation to teach-
ing banking and corporation man-
agement to his son, Paul, back from
a post-graduate course at Cambridge.
An attentive son can learn more
from his father than from a thous-
and professors put together, if his
father KNOWS. And Mr. Mellon
does know.
In a grave in Westminster Abbey
a father and son lie side by side,
Pitt, who kept Napoleon out of
England, and his father, the Earl of
Pitt, a delicate boy, was taught
in youth by his father, and, later,
studied statesmanship at his father’s
dinner table, listening to Chatham
and other older men. He entered
the House of Commons and wa$
Chancellor of the Exchequer at
twenty-two and Prime Minister at
Mr. Franklin D. Roosevelt says:
“Character building begins in the
cradle.” Parents should train chil-
dren from their babyhood.
An old English horse trainer
asked: “When should I begin train-
ing my colt,” and told that the colt
was three weeks old, said: “You
have lost the three most important
weeks.” : '
Children should be trained with
kindness and explanation, never with
whippiiilg or other brutality, from
But don’t waste too much time
correcting and nagging concerning
faults that the child will out grow
with time; and not other wise.
Dr. Frankel, learned Metropolitan
Life expert, says the philosphic
mind rules the child best.
Between the ages of three and fif-
teen, according to Dr. Frankel, each
child goes through all the various
stages through which the human
race as a whole has passed, from
the Stone Age to the present day.
“The philosophic mind,” knowing
that a young child is a young bar-
barian, and cannot be anything else,
does not foolishly expect too much,
and force the child to be a hypocrite.
However, one thing is more im-
portant in the bringing up of chil-
dren than the philosophic mind, or
anything else, and that is AFFEC-
TION, and especially the love of a
No science can take the place of
It is to the mind's expansion and
healthy growth what food is to the
body. There is no substitute.
From time to time the Bureau of
Motor Vehicles receives queries re-
lating to the operation in Canada
of motor vehicles bearing Pennsyl-
vania dealer’s plates. Commissioner
Benjamin G. Eynon, writing to each
orovince, gleaned the following
British Columbia—Use not per-
New Brunswick—No reciprocity.
New Brunswick plates must bg
jecured. A a
Nova Scotia—Use permitted only
:0 bring car to destination; tourists
orivileges denied.
America must save its children
from standardization if it is to save
its soul!
That is the plea of Adrienne Mor-
rison, famous mother of the three
Bennett sisters, Constance, Barbara
and Joan.
Miss Morrison herself isan actress
of importance, having played in
many well-known roles, including
Shakespearan ones. She is of the
seventh generation of actors in her
family, and made her first stage ap-
pearance at the age of six months,
in her father’s arms.
“American children are the most
patterned infants in the whole
world,” she said. “The American
parents to have their offspring ‘“suc-
cesses,” in the money sense of the
word, is standardizing the young to
a deplorable extent.”
Miss Morrison feels there are many
ways to counteract the machine
influence of the machine age in
which we live. That is, of course,
if parents are willing to seek them
out. She expressed it:
“Teach children to use their lei-
sure intelligently and beautifully and
they will become individuals, each of
whom will be interesting in his own
particular way, and will make his
own contribution to life’s richness.”
Her own exepriment as manager
and director of the Children’s Play-
ers is an outcome of her belief that
today’s youngsters need food for
their imaginations, that they yearn
for a sense of healthy adventure in
their lives, and need clean romance
and genuine glamor.
Miss Morrison has a company of
professional adult actors who give
the kind of plays that all children
yearn for. Classic fairy tales, the
best of the imaginative moderns,
plays that meet the vivid imagi-
nation of the child and carry him far |
away into the lovely land of make-
believe. They are calculated to stir
his own imagination and satisfy his
hunger for beauty and adventure.
“Americans are perhaps the most
machine-minded folks in the world,”
Miss Morrison said. “Of course any
people that has pioneered its way
into greatness is apt to worship the
tools that helped it. But because of
this mental attitude, we measure
“The result? We set rules for this,
that, and everything, and look as-
kance with those who do not fall in
line and follow. Of course we want
our children to fit into the mold
with precision and perfection. That
is what is hard on the growing
We stifle their individuality, kill
the spirit of individual adventure,
destroy their initiative and choke
their imagination and desire for
beauty by prescribing rules for
everything. These qualities are the
rightful heritage of every child.
They should be fostered, not hurt.
“Jt is more than wrong to teach
the child only how to make good in
his work, America far more needs
instruction in how to make good
in lesiure.”
Motor Vehicle Commissioner Ben-
jamin G. Eynon today called atten-
tion to the fact that motor car
owners and operators who have
changed their address since is-
suance of 1930 licenses will do well
to notify the Buerau of Motor Ve-
hicles at Harrisburg if they wish to
receive applications for 1931 reg-
“Within a couple of months,” said
Commissioner Eynon, “the addresso-
graph section will begin the prepa-
ration of forms and operators li-
censes for 1931. It is impossible for
the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to
know when a car owner changes
his address, therefore it behooves
him to give us this information.
Change of address must be made
on Bureau Form M-18, a copy of
which may be obtained in the office
of any automobile club, notary pub-
lic or injustice of the peace.
“Unless we get immediate action
from those who have changed their
address, we will have a repetition |
of what has occurred for several
years past. In other words several,
hundred thousands of those appli-
cations will be returned. It is a
very simple matter to procure and
mail one of these forms and car
owners are not doing the right
thing when they fall to live up to
the provisions of the law.”

—Overcrowding of chicks in the
brooder house may lead to such
vices as cannibalism and tail pick-
ing. Providing 40 lineal feet of hop-
per space for epproximately 300
chicks has permitted chicks at the
Pennsylvania State College to obtain
all the feed desired when wanted.
—Fruit should be thinned out if
the usual June drop has left more
fruit on the trees than will mature
properly. Thinning will improve the
quality of the remaining fruit.
—Weeds mus. be annihilated mer-
cilessly even if the weather is too
hot for comfort. Permit no weeds
to go to seed in lawn or garden,
Such prevention will save work and
worry in the future.
—During the summer an occasion-
al visit should be made to the tree
plantation to see if weeds and grass
are overtopping the trees or wheth-
er insects are doing any damage.
Tramping back the weeds and grass
along the rows will allow sunlight
to reach the trees. Insects can be
killed by hand or controlled by ap-
propriate measures. Consult your
county agent.
—Roses must always be planted
firmly. The top 2 or 3 inches of
soil should be cultivated every week.
Never sprinkle the rose bed; apply
water freely so that plenty of mois-
ture will reach the root system.
—Beef cattle specialists of State :
College recommended regular feed- '
ing and plenty of water for baby
beeves. Cool, airy, well-bedded
quarters will provide comfort and
aid gains.
—Quality products are profitable :
because they satisfy customers and:
get repeat orders. |
—A good dairy cow probably con-
sumes more water than any other |
domestic animal. The more feed
consumed, the more water the cow
requires. : [
—The time to select exhibits for
the coming fairs and farm products
shows is at harvesting. Pick uniform
typical specimens rather than the
largest individuals which can be
—Perennials which are planted
for next year’s borders must re-
ceive sufficient moisture to germi-
nate the seeds. If it is not possible
to plant after a soaking rain, the
soil should be thoroughly saturated, '
—Fewer mistakes in culling hens
will be made when the flock has
been porperly fed and the hens
given a chance to lay as many eggs
as they are capable of producing.
—Strawberry beds should be re-
newed or renovated just after pick-
ing time. It is not always necessary .
to reset the plants. Your county
agent can give you helpful informa-
tion on this subject.
—Watch for the little red mites
which hide in the cracks and crev-
ices of roosts, supports, and walls.
These small parasites suck the blood
from chickens at night. A good
mite paint can be used on the.
roosts and supports for their control.
—If rose blooms are cut before
10 o'clock in the morning and after
4 o'clock in the afternoon the
flowers will not wilt so quickly as
when cut in the middle of the day.
—Cows may eat and may also
use for bedding, timothy hay, quack
grass, etc. These roughages require
from 18 per cent to 20 per cent
digestible protein in the grain mix-
ture. Such mixtures are more ex-
pensive than when alfalfa or clover
is fed.
— Providing cows with proper feeds
in accordance with their ability to
produce and taking good care of the
manure from each cow are the two
sure ways for cutting down the
cost of producing butterfat.
— One pound of grain should be
fed for each four pounds of Holstein |
milk produced. One pound of grain '
should be fed for each three pounds
of Jersey or Guernsey milk pro-
duced or feed each cow one pound
of grain for every pound of fat pro-
duced by her in a week. mo

A total of 1,371,476 seedlings and
transplants of forest trees were
shipped during May from the nurs-
ery at the new Western State Pen-
itentiary at Rockview, according to
a report of prison industries pre-
pared by Harry F. Andrews, super-
intendent of prison industries.
Of the total numebr 975,900 of
these seedlings and transplants were
shipped to other states in the far
west, the south and the New Eng-
land states. The list of states to
which shipments were made includes,
Indiana, West Virginia, Michigan,
Maryland, Illinois, Tennessee, Mon-
tana, Missouri, Connecticut, Iowa,
Utah and New Jersey.
In addition to the foreign ship-
for a watershed at the Western
State ~Penitentary where 38000
young trees were shipped. The
total value of the total numbers of
young trees shipped from the nurs-
ery amounted to $8,979.99,
The report also shows that dur-
ing the month approximately two
miles of seed beds were prepared
and sown to various species of for-
est trees.
The value of planting seedlings
and cultivating woodlots at state
institutions is annually demonstrated
at institutions where the lumber is
cut for needs as they arise. There
are approxmately 6,000 acres suited
for the production of timber at
the several institutions.
At the Warren state hospital as
much as 100,000 board feet have
been cut in a year for use at .the
institution. At the State Industrial
Home for Women at Muncy a small
saw mill is operated by the tractor
belonging to the institution and
30,000 to 40,000 feet of lumber are
taken out annually.

Applicatinos from school districts
for special class teacher reimburse-
ment, which have been received at
show that there are in Pennsylvania
at the present time 758 approved
special classes with 11,370 handicap-
ped children receiving instruction
from specially trained teachers.
These public school classes of handi-
capped children include children who
are mentally backward, crippled,
malnourished, deaf, partially sighted
blind, and with various types of
tion adapted to their special needs.
The records show that sixty-four
districts have organized special
capped children. Philadelphia has
563 such classes. Other school dis-
tricts with five or more classes are:
Pittsburgh thirty-five, Harrisburg
seven, Johnstown seven, Easton six,
Chester five, Donora five, Lancaster
The 1925 assambly passed a law
appropriating sufficient funds to
reimburse school districts maintain-
classes with
porperly licensed teachers. The fi-
nancial aid provided by this law has
stimulated the organization of swych
classes and has proved a boon to the
handicapped childrtn in the state,
officials assert.
Pennsylvania farmers killed eighty
deer during June, an increase of
twenty-one over the same month in
hatches may be satisfactorily mar-
keted as broilers.
—Fastening hardware cloth or
baby chick netting under the low
roosts, then slanting it down to the
floor helps to teach chicks to roost
when no more than a week old. The
roosting habit will save many a chick
—Clover leaves make excellent
greens and roughage for hens. There
is no danger of harming the poultry
if just the leaves are fed. There
might be some danger in allowing
them to eat the stalk because it is
tough and hard to digest.
—TEggs contain phosphorus, iron,
calcium, common salt, potassium,
salts and sulphur in easily digested
sheep. Farmers over a wide area were at a loss
to check the marauders. One moonlight t
the owner of a valuable flock saw a strange dog
running. Immediately he telephoned his nei
bors and slipped out of the house to protect
own animals. Within half an hour he heard a
distant volley of shots. Slistely Ja telephone
rang to inform him that the killer had been
esught red-handed.

Working Capital
here are more business failures in the Uni-
ted States because of lack of enough cash
on hand to carry on business properly and
profitably, than from any other cause. The
man without working capital is handicapped in
every way, and his end as a business man may
safely be predicted.
The chances are strongly against success.
Business nowadays is a hard game, and
proper equipment in experience, judgment—
cash is absolutely necessary.
