Are Discussed
A bunch of letters and all In the

Most of them are written by girls
who are unhappy in their homes, or
thwarted in their hopes, or by lonely
girls who lack friends and admirers
or who are thrown with uncongenial
associates or else have no compan

To older people this may seem a
trivial woe. It is nothing of the
kind. In the first place no woe is
trivial. In the second, to be pretty
and attractive and to make friends
easily is the heart's desire of every
young girl.
In reading over these letters, how
ever, I was struck by thefact that
not one of them was written by a

Chicago, Oct. 16. —Recent claims
that the Cleveland club led Ameri

in its service flag, sixteen of them
representing players in the Army,
caused President B. B. Johnson to
ask each of the eight clubs in the
league to give the number of its
men in the service. The head of the
league announced to-day that the
Detroit club was the first to respond,
with an officia Hist of twenty-four
players in the Army and Navy; sev
enteen in the former and seven in
the latter; and a manager going
overseas for the Knights of Colum

one man in a shipyard, President
Navin, of Detroit, challenged the
major league to beat Its loyalty per

teen players in service, four of them
officers, while other clubs in the
league are to be heard from.

No. #3. Do Your Children Provoke You or Do You Understand Them?
CHILDREN often seem a nuis
ance. Some really do cause an
endless amount of trouble.
But who is to blame? The child
can't help it If the mother doesn't
understand It.
The following case of how a lit- I
tie girl misbehaved while her mother I
was entertaining a club group is re
ported by one mother!
"Betty, stay out of that room.
Do ypu hear me 7 Come here- Betty,
come here, I say, BETTY!" At this
point, the mother went in .and led
Betty out of the room. In a minute
or two, Betty started up the open
stairway. "Betty, don't you go up
those steps—you'll fall and hurt
yourself. Betty, did you hear what
I said? Come right down off those
steps, right away." By this time,
Betty was near the top and the
mother said in a loud voice, "Betty,
do you want me to get the whip in
the kitchen and whip you 7 Do
you 7 Betty Indicated that she didn't
and so she paused long enough to
make a study of her mother's face
I and in fact the whole situation;
| then she climbed on upstairs.
Her mother doubtless surprised
j her in that she actually went out to
I get the whip, and of course, Betty
did come down when she discovered
that her mother actually had the
whip. The mother then assumed
that she had won a great victory.
But had she?
Let us analyze this case. It Is In
"Take the mother's first expres
sion, "Stay out of that room." This
is a negative suggestion. The proper
way to use suggestion would be to
tell the daughter where she might
play; perhaps accompanied by defi
nite, positive suggestions as to what
she might play.
By using the expression, "Do you
| hear me?" and the two expressions
I following, the mother violated the
; fundamental principle of expectancy,
j The habit of reaping commands is
one of the most common causes of
J disobedience. When a mother tells
| a child to do one thing, and then
I tells him to do another almost be
i fore lie has time to carry out the
! first, he quite naturally feels that
I she must not have expected him
| very strongly to obey the first time
I and he, therefore, does not think of
the following commands as being
Most of the expressions used in
the case described suggested fault
finding because they related to acts
| already committed by the daughter.
| A mere suggestion of fault-finding
I has a peculiar effect upon children;
i whenever fault-finding is introduced
I in any situation, it complicates it—
' makes it difficult to manage from
| that point on. The words of a com
! mand should be spoken clearly but
\ in a slow and calm manner.
| The Idea of substitution never
[i occurred to this mother. The prop
' er thing for her to have done was to
plan for her little daughter's enter
tainment for the afternoon just ts
she did for the members of her
club. Betty should have been given
a fair amount of space in some room
and provided with interesting occu
pation of some sort. It might have
been well to give her some new
Not only would It have been wise
for this mother to use substitution
by arranging for the child to have
a definite place to play and provid
ing adequate material, but she
should have shown Betty that she
was interested In her having a good
' time. She should have gone- occa
t sionally into the room where the
| child was playing, shown her co-
I operation by asking if she wanted
! anything, or by making little sugges
| tions.
The analysis of this case would
hardly be complete without calling
attention to the probability that the
mother's habitual use of wrong
methods played a part in causing the
scene. A mother cannot use wrong
methods in the daily routine and
expect to have a child's manner In
the presence of company perfect.
