Wednesday afternoon at 2 p. m
with Mrs. H. Scoggins continu-
ing the discussion of teen-age
"First of all we as parents must
guard their health, we owe it to
them. Children from the ages of
8 through 13 need competitive acti-
vity, they need to be kept busy
and that is something we as par-
ents do not do enough of. They
need responsibilities. We must
teach our children how to do
things," said Mrs. Scoggins and
continuing her talk:
"Teen-agers must have stability
at home, knowing they will al-
ways have a roof over their heads,
good food on the table and know -
ing where they ean find their par-
ents or the hours the parents will
