Be Consistent WithChild,
Sociologist Tells Institute

Parents who spank a child one
day. only to coddle him the next
for the same offense. make it im-
possible for their offspring to
understand or trust his universe.
Dr. Mildred 1. Morgan, Florida State
University sociologist. told dele-
gates to UK‘s fifth annual Family
Life Institute recently.

Dr. Morgan told the UK audience
that consistency in the emotional
climate of the home is of major
importance in giving children a
feeling of stability.

A child with one over-protecting
parent and another who is stern and
unyielding must be a tight-rope
walker. she said. “Indeed fortunate
is the child who knows that both
his parents can be counted on to be
the same and they stand to-
gether in the things they believe
about him and his behavior.“

Committees Then And Now

One hundred and seventy-live years ago the committee system
in our national government apparently functioned better than it
lltlt s today This could be because in 1776 committees were ap-
p tllllt‘tl for noble purimses—such as for the Writing of the Declara~
tinn oI Independence.

t present it appears that Washington committees are formed
fur no nobler purpose than to dig up political dirt about opposi-
tion bigwigs. One wonders whether there is any comparison
lu-twwn the framers ot the Declaration of Independence and the
party—mimled politicians senile: on a number of current govern»
nwnt committees.

The Fight Will Go On

\pparently there is now some basis for believing that the fight-
inu in Korea will soon end.

lint .1 truce in Korea will not mean that the line has been held
1'_' znst totalitarianism. Above all. we must not be lured into the
'vmlisli dream that the world is on the verge of peace.

The .\nn'rican people must have foresight enough and courage
