Above the Smoke of Battle and the Dust of Violated Homes

Earth Under Them and Sky Over Them' H

ERE we are, eating three times a day, homes

clean and complete, friends near-by. Inconvenienced now and then, but independent and assured!

We have paid out some Red Cross money a while back, too.
Paid it out-and forgotten it. That's how much it hurt.

Might not be a bad idea to have a look at what that money has been doing?

Maybe it will be good business to sort of check things up?
(Maybe it will be good for our souls, incidentally.)

That money went, dollar for dollar, where it did a full day's work, wherever it was.

half-formed dread of the thing that came at last.

Now they have the “earth under them and the sky over them "-not one thing else. Their sons are fighting, destroyed, or ill-used prisoners. Their daughters are missing."

It's for you to say whether this great work of mercy shall stop. Whether the Heart of America will speak again in the same wonderful voice that poured forth the hundred millions of the first Red Cross War Fund. Those millions have fought the good fight-they are gone.

The Red Cross is yours, just as our Army and Navy are yours; yours to support with the same fervor and loyalty that leads you to the bottom of your purse for Liberty Bonds.

It's for your voice to say whether your Red Cross shall falter now or sweep onward, greater and more helpful than ever before.

And it's your dollars that must answer.

New Methods in Child Training

Fast Superseding the Old Highest Authorities

Endorse Them Being a good parent is the biggest job on earth. Upon how we train our children depends their entire future success and happi

Yet what training have most of us had in this all-important work? Instead of using scientific methods in our contact with the most delicate mechanism in the world-a child's mindwe often use methods that do irreparable injury.

What chance would a fine Swiss watch have if, knowing nothing about watchmaking, we tried to adjust it with a hatchet and a crowbar ?

As absurd as that may seem, thousands of loving parents with their whole beings wrapped up in their children's welfare are using methods fully as unsuited-fully as dangerous and harmful.

For a child's mind needs far more intelligent care than the most delicate watch ever made. And very often the method we use to correct one bad habit is the very cause of other bad habits which can easily wreck the entire life of the child.

Where We Go Wrong The trouble 'in the past has been that when a child is disobedient, untruthful or "naughty, panish the child for exhibiting that symptom.' What we should do is to attack the cause. Not by punishment, but by co-operation.

When we attack the symptoms instead of the cause, we very often irritate the cause instead of removing it.

Millions of children are deceitful because the parents in trying to overcome some other bad habit have caused them to be deceitful.

Who Is To Blame? When a child is straightforward, obedient and willing-when it is courageous, generous and fine in every way, it is that way because the parent made it so. And the reverse is equally true. When a child is untruthful, selfish and disobedient, it is not the fault of the child but of the parent.

You can make your children what you will. Character is nothing more than a set of established habits. Whether these habits are good or bad depends on the parent.

The parent has no one but himself to blame for the conduct of his offspring, not only when young, but throughout life.

cured, Professor Beery shows in each instance exactly how some other parent in the same situation has applied his methods to secure results.

For instance, suppose your child is aged four, and is afraid of the dark. All you have to do is look up this trait in the index for children of that age and then turn to the proper page. Here you will find in detail an example of how some other parent cured a child of this fear through Professor Beery's methods. No other teacher of child training has ever attempted to handle the subject in such a practical, easy to apply way. It means that in addition to a constructive, thoroughly organized system of child training, you have the daily help you need to overcome all undesirable characteristics as they develop.

Personal Service In addition_to the complete Course in Child Training, by Professor Beery, members of the Parents Association enjoy many other equally worthwhile benefits such as the privilege of personal consultation through the mail with Professor Beery on any particularly vexing child training problem, exchange of experiences of other members through the Association's Bulletin which is issued regularly ; free Purchase Service, which enables you to buy children's books at publisher's prices, advice as to schools, camps, etc. But we have not the space here to give the whole wonderful story.

Free Book Explains All " New Methods in Child Training” is the title of a 24-page illustrated booklet which describes the work of the Association and explains Professor Beery's remarkable ('ourse in Child Training. It also contains letters from members outlining the astonishingly satisfactory results they have secured through these New Methods. A copy of this book will be sent at once to any interested parent who merely writes a letter or postcard ; or, mail the coupon below. It is suggested that you write at once, as the Association is making a special offer to new members which will undoubtedly be withdrawn shortly. Send today—no obligation.

of the average parent that they have done as well as they have.

But now, for the first time, there is constructive help at hand. A great organization, the Parents Association, an international society with members in all parts of the world, has been formed to guide parents in the upbringing of their children.

The principle upon which this association was founded is that in dealing with children confidence is the basis of control.

Professor Ray C. Beery, A.B., M.A. (Harvard and Columbia), the founder of the Association, after years of exhaustive research and practical experience, has created a complete Course in Child Training, endorsed by leading educators everywhere, which is available to members of the Association.

This course is unlike anything that has ever gone before. Instead of dealing in generalities, it is intensely definite and practical, and tells the parent exactly what to do in each individual case to produce immediate and permanent results. It is meant for the modern busy parent of children from the cradle to 18 years of age.

The “Case” Method The method used by Professor Beery in his Course in Child Training is essentially the same as that now used in teaching the law, except, of course, that it is condensed and remarkably easy to apply.

Instead of devoting pages to a theoretical discussion of the various traits and habits which are to be

How much satisfaction do you get from a newspaper ?

Do you put it down with a confident feeling you have learned the exact facts of the principal recent occurrences that have taken place throughout the world?

Do you find therein information of sufficient interest to warrant passing your newspaper along or cause you to save it to read again?

Do its statements speak with authority ?

The readers of The Christian Science Monitor can answer these queries in the affirmative because this great international daily newspaper has its own reporters all over the world gathering true stories of daily events, which are published uncontaminated by personal opinion or biased conclusion.
