PAGE SIX 00BIES Editor-in-Chief, Cetholic Action of the South AT DINNER TIME A father sat down at the dinner table one evening, and noticed that his little daughter had dirty hands. He scolded her, asking, "What would you say to me if I came to eat with dirty hands?" The daughter sweetly replied, "Well, I think I would be too polite to mention it." Many people create an unfavorable, derogatoy impression by their actions during a meal.. i dren. In this way, the lessons will i be much more quickly and pleas- antly learned. Dinner time is about the only Even the character and the stand- ing of a guest, who is not well known, may be misjudged because of his table manners. It is im- portant, therefore, to a child's future welfare that he be trained in the proper conduct at table. Mealtime may not always prove to be the advantageous period to teach correct eating technique, especially when constant nagging is indulged in. The fundamentals of the proprieties, however, can be established when the child is still too small to ear at the big table. But, once he is big enough to join the family during meals, he is primarily interested in eating, because he is hungry. Having his mind solely on food, he will be irritated at. interference. A better system is to "play din- ner" with the children once a week, at an "off" time, when they are not too hungry. Set the table completely and correctly, making it interesting by serving some food of which they are fond. Supervise the game, but let the older ones teach and correct the younger ones, seeing to it that everything works out according to rules and regulations. It can be made fun !occasion during the day when the ',whole family is officially together. I This is true, of course, when the father does not consider his pro- lession or business a thing of l greater importance than his fam- ily. It is a grave mistake for fathers not to make it their boun- den duty to be on time for the evening meal. Of course, oc- casional upsets may happen, as in the life of a doctor. But, work and calls can be so arranged that, generally, he can be on time for his supper or dinner. The annoyance caused by ir- regularity is not worth any ma- terial gain. The children are hungry, and do not get fed on schedule; they have been anxious- l y waiting to see their daddy, and he does not come home; the food stays in the kitchen until "it isn't fit to eat;" Mother becomes cross, and the cook gets peeved. The situation is not healthy, from any standpoint. So, what does the father gain by having a couple more highballs downtown?

His little troubles can be discussed and his successes may become matters of interested comment. In this way, a more closely knit family tie can be affected, and a greater sym- pathy and understanding among all may be established. It will be of great benefit to the youngsters if Daddy and Moth- er also take thei innings, with good judgment, in telling of their triumphs, handicaps and worries of the day. It will make the chil- dren prouder of their parents for the good they do, and for the success they achieve; it will give them an idea of the struggle the older people sometimes have to make for the sake. of the family's happiness. The children will be- come more appreciative of what their parents are doing for them. They will tend to be less selfish and more considerate when they are brought to realize that their comfortable home, the clothes they wear, the three good meals they daily enjoy, the education that is given them, and all such benefits and blessings, do not just drop out of the sky. Most children'to- day do not fully appreciate their parents' efforts in their behalf. Everything is taken too much for granted. Easy, pleasant, seeming- ly purposeless conversation at the dinner table, with the family alone, can most effectively drive home many a pertinent lesson. The regular daily meal, at which all the members of the family are present, should be looked upon as the golden opportunity, of which proper appreciation is shown by appearance and behavior, to im- press the stamp of good breeding upon the children in the matter of correct table manners, and to develop family loyalty, and soli- darity by constructive eonversa-  tion. Tie patience and long suffer- ing of God should be a subject of continual thanksgiving. Is it not wonderful how He has borne with us and we so miserably perverse the while? How many absolutions have we not had, our last merits restored to U, fresh braces given? What a miracle of patience God has been!
