Mrs. Mannie Is
Mrs. Virginia Mannie, spoke to
the Child Guidance Group on
Novenrfber 16 on the "Art of
Communication." She said that
communication can be verbal or
nonverbal. You can’t talk to
someone and expect to get your
ideas across if you are not a good
listener in return. If a child can ask
questions and get answers, he will
understand. Remember each child
.is different, so see what effect your
message has on him. If he doesn’t
respond, try saying it another way.
Analyze what your child is saying,
then you will know what to say.
When trying to communicate
with your teen-ager, don’t put
yourself in a position where you
will have to prove yourself. If he
says he will not do something,
before you say "yes, you will", and
have to back it up, put yourrself in
his place and try to find out why he
won't. Listen to what your child is
saying because sometimes people
say a lot of things they don't really
mean, you have to read between
Mrs Mannie showed a film on a
new technique in teaching
children. They start children from
underprivileged homes, ages six
months torour years, three to nine
hours a day. Each teacher has four
children to work with. They
surround him with toys and the
words that go with the toys, teach
him not only to count but what
comes after a number, and try to
lengthen attention span. This new
teaching method' is being
criticized. When asked what her
opinion was Mrs. Mannie said she
didn’t feel you should follow every
fad. Education swings from one
extreme to the other If a child is
ready, teach him. Practice the art
of listening to your child then you
will know when he is ready to

"Hang up,” says Harold John-
son, Manager for Southwestern
Bell here. "Use the phone on your
terms. Don’t talk to anyone you
don't want to, whether they’re
selling something, seeking in-
formation, playing a prank or
mouthing obscenities. Don’t give
them an audience and they’re not
likely to call back.”
Johnson said the phone company
has other suggestions^on how to fight

selves. When someone asks, "Who
is this?” don’t tell them unless you
recognize the voice or until he

"And where a threat is in-
volved,” he continued, "such as a
call threatening injury to person or
property, kidnap or robbery, call
police and the telphone company
immediately. There are laws
against abusive calling, and we
have methods of tracing these calls
to their source.”
The law makes it a misdemeanor
to use profane, vulgar or indecent
language, threats, harassment or
enticement by use of the telephone.
Conviction carries a fine from $100
to $1,000, one to twelve months in
jail, or both.
Johnson said experience has
shown that annoying calls come
from almost anyone—not just from
strangers, but sometimes from
close acquaintance, neighbors or

source often. Many come from a
relatively small group of people—
