Informative Type Introductory Type grown-up people say \tbla formality I makes m telred. What ’ s the dif ­ ference whether you go first or I go first? What if a man does lose patience and russet a bit? You j can ’ t always be on dress parade. They won ’ t tat you on the courts unless you wear a certain dress, they won ’ t let you on the links un- 1 leas you can make It under ninety. There ’ s no fun In playing If you can ’ t Just dub along.\ But dubbing along Is not playing the game. If your lack of good form, your lack of skill, causes you to Interfere with other players. If comfortable and that Is not playing the moat Importan of all games, living. Teach a child howto play. In the early stages of growth teach the how to acquire skill. When he has mastered the game* and gathered experiences he will begin to grow spiritually. Then It la time to call j This means of course that the patient must have a certain degree of Intelligence and that the doctor must give the cose the necessary ’ j amount of time. The second method Is known as the suggestive method which may even Include hypnotism. Certain, suggestions are-made to the patient that will help him to ’ ’ get above\ ; his symptoms or depressions. | The physician attempts toj strengthen his will power, to keep ! him busy with thoughts about other matters than his ailment. A third-method Is the \analytical ” method, or psycho analysis as you so often see It called. This takes In dreams, and slips of the tongue. The patient Is allow ­ ed to talk about anything and every thing that comes Into his mind and the doctor notes tho subjects he talks about, and what 1s more Important the subjects he avoids. By bringing the avoided subject or aubjects to the light, the doctor can often show that It Is really not so Important as the patient thinks It Is. Also that his Ideas about It are all wrong, what the right Ideas arc, and so forth. Now you can readily see that persons who are just beginning to have mental ailments need careful treatment and It Is the trained specialist, who knows how to appreciate the matter, who should get the best results. When you think about the treat ­ ment of an ailment of the body you naturally have medicine In mind but what about the treatment of an Although some drugs sre used when extreme necessity arises, the treatment of mental ailments, thst It In the early stages, la by the use of the doctor ’ s mind on that of the patient This Is what Is known as psycho ­ therapy which U not a hard word when you remember that ’ ’ psycho ” means the mind, the “ therapy ” means treatment. Now mental specialists differ In the vfby they go about the treat ­ ment. but Is usually by one of three or four methods. The first Is what Is called the educational method where the doc ­ tor takes complete command of things and undertakes y> educate the mind of the patient. This la often called the Dubois method. He goes Into the whole mailer with the patient, teaches him enough anatomy, and physiology, to know what hK mind should do nor ­ mally, also some pathology, which la what a condition Is called when It Is not normal, that is diseased. He ’ ’ enlightens ’ ’ the patient In every way poaslble and persuades him to take the proper view-point about his complaints. County Court Ho us# SHOPPERS QUIDE Painting — Decorating S.

GlRUGAGvP Why We Call the Month “ May' Hare la one of the moet romantic months of the year, one of the moat seductive words In the English lan ­ guage, one of the most beautiful embodiments of all that a word or syllable can contain and convey of Its origin In beauty, love and life. For the name “ May\ comes to us directly from the Latin \Magius subsequently softened to \Maius. ” and probably in turn derived from the Sanskrit \Mah. ” meaning “ to May, in other words. Is the grow ­ ing month, the growing month for flowers, for love, for'light spirits and heavy crops and high amcl- Through many languages this Idea is expressed In various shades, depending oftthe temperament of the people of the land. The old Dutch name, for Instance, was \Blou-maand. ” meaning \blossom ­ ing month.\ The old Saxons called the month pf May \Trimllchl (three milks) because during this month they could milk their cows three times a day. While In France, dur ­ ing the days .-when the-French Re ­ publican calendar was standard. May was called \FloreaJ. ’ ’ the time of flowers.

Didn't you see the silver bells, swinging, swinging In the little summer winds, and the cockle shells gleaming brightly In the yel- . low summer sun? Didn ’ t you see the little maids, round-cherkcd and bright-eyed, with frilly skirls and bobbing curls, a *>art of the gaidrn ns much as the bright bobbing tulips or lb* dripping sweet harebells? But alas! for the childhood of another generation! It was only In your dreams you saw them — you as well iu 1. When we were less than six no blue bells grew brightly In a magic garden beside the sea, no yellow crocuses poked up bright heads In gay Insinua ­ tion that this Is a pla'ce to dance — no pebble-white paths ’ lured lit ­ tle maids out of garden beds away to tho garden gate. Our day, let us say softly. Is done. The dullest of our children need not blunder through their little years without glimpsing a nursery ’ paradise; the keenest of them need not stand chagrined because the realization of a day-dream Is not half so fine as was the dream Itself. For Mistress Mary's garden Is an actuality now beside the Sound, a part of a wonder-world for children lying open at our doors. Saturday I went up to-TIByland. vested with all the hypocrisy — unconscious h^pcrlsy — that marks the adult when he or she approaches the children'll domain. I suppose children get a rare thrill out of Playland — l>tit I ’ m not sure It exceeds the one' that comes to adults who visit there. The children aren't consciously aware of the perfection of Playland, All they know Is that the things ore Just their size — the red sec-saw doesn't go too high and -the blue aping won't reach too far; the slide has steps one Isn ’ t afraid to climb and the roller-coaster has dips just sufficiently breath-taking but not at all terrifying. That. I Imagine. Is what the children know. Playland is a place of fine sensation, all care ­ fully graded to the young nerves and.soft bones of those whose minds art still filled with nursery rhymes But the adults sec the perfection of Playland. a domain without \don't#. ” Mature eyes cannot but soften ut the sight of that lovely Utile garden that puts out Its shingle unashamed; mature phy ­ siques cannot but regret (heir grown clumsiness at the sight of the swim boats that glide over a miniature canal, at the sound of the toy motors that whiz about a smooth track, at the gaudy pur ­ ple and yellow rockers- balancers — or whatever you call them- from which even the IHtlcs't person can tumble without peril We In this generation arc in a unique position to appreciate Playland. Our children who arc little today will grow up accuse tomed to It. accepting It as part of their legitimate Inheritance, after the fashion that youngsters have. They won ’ t question how It came Into being, .or puzzle over what bright summer days were like when one went on an outing and everything had been cut from adult cloth to fit an adult frame But We know what they were like. We can appreclUe Playland. re-live.our little dreams of a child-sized moat -and ii child-size boat — and pretty maids all In a row — and wander once agnln In a delicious realm of make .believe, this time come unbelievably true There were two outstanding things obvious to a grown-up in Playland — two essential difference* between little people and big people. The first Is the way the little ones take one thing at u time — detail by detail — oh. mostly detail. 1 saw one youngster, en ­ tirely unaware of tho delights Inherent In the see-saw. standing gravely contemplating a crack in the board. When approached by her nurse, who wanted to give her a ride, the young woman screeched with wrath and chagrin because the nurpe. in blundering grown-up fashion, thought she ought to sit right on that fascinat ­ ing little crack. U was plain that the obviou.. thing to do was to remedy the crack. The youngster was Incensed at the nurse's stupidity, and finally was allowed — o resume her contemplation of the rift. ’ at which she stared with the solemn concentration of on Indian fakir. Another youngster refused entirely to look at Mis ­ tress Mary ’ s garden. She was aBsofbtff with Joy by\the Utlle ’ JSieJwr- fence that surrounds it. v \Oh de dear little febee! De dear little fence! ” she kept repeat Ing. and was all for taking a picket or two home with her { The live ponies meant nothing to a third who was in a transport of delight over the wooden kittens and puppy dogs ’ heads that decorate the fence posts hedging out tho pony compound. And yet another thought something ought to be done about the wooden floor In the play-yard — \fulla boles. Mommey.\ he kept saying, ’ ’ somebody boko tho for.\ The Tor ’ is mado up. of course, of nar row boards laid about a sixteenth or an'inch apart. i The second thing obvious to the bystander at Playland'!# the fine nervous organization with which our youngest generation Is en ­ dowed. They all seem perfectly fearless — perhaps by contrast. I. a eravet) coward, was forced to go on the roMer coaster. I suppose I ought to protest that U Isn't very bad. But 1 was made to wall, firmly jn land wfth broad flat heels and 1 can get sufficient thrill out of a rocking chair. I don ’ t need to go whizzing and whirring about In the elements to secure a vicarious thrill. However. I had to go on the roller-coaster. You understand, of course, that I mean the roller-coaster made for the children. Probably It isn ’ t over ten or twelve feet high. It takes only one bod dip and whirls sharply around only one corner. When we drew up to the start ­ ing place, at the end of the tide. I.waa weaK with tho wrath that always fills me --very time 1 get on one of those things and with the fear I can ’ t get over. But my three-year-old companion said, with a'fine succulent flavor to her words, as though she hod just eaten something particularly luelous. \Fine! Fine! Dat was fine!\ Her contemporary in the front seat was not so easily satisfied, however. He was blonde and blue-eyed, all of two and a half years old. and he banged his heels excitedly and shouted. \More! I want more! I want more dat bumpey-bump! ” I didn ’ t Two Toms of Alabama m At Charity Pageant TELEPHONE NUMBERS OF PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE Whit* Plain* Polio* Depot Whit* Plain* Fir* from th random affair of earlier vogue.
