Lake Hurons scenic shore highway US Mighty Mac provides a double thrill first as you approach the graceful beauty of the great span arched in the center to allow the passage of ships which have plied the treacherous blueblack waters since explorer Jean Nicolets voy age of 1634 when he was seeking a northwest passage to China The next sensation comes as you be gin the bridge crossing 200 feet above

a hillside sloping down to busy lake shore docks We made our first stop at the little park which honors Jesuit Father Jacques Marquette who established a mis sion for the Indians near this spot in 1671 His grave is marked by a simple crosscrowned monu ment with pink petunias growing at the base A tepeelike shrine with a statue and tranquil foun tain is nearby as is the small museum displaying

Children Get Mad Resentment Is Normal By DOROTHY V WHIPPLE AP Newsfeatures The bell gongs through the street Laura looks up from her blocks Ice cream she says expect antly She jumps upand runs to the door No says mother lits al most supper time ro ice cream this afternoon The tears well up in Lauras eyes I want ice crtam now No dearie not today Laura stamps her foot Youre bad Youre a bad mommy I hate you I know it makes you feel mad at mommy I know you would like the ice cream and it makes you angry when I must say no Life is fuJl of frustrations for little folk No one can grow up and have every single wish grant ed Part of growing up is learn ing how to cope with frustration Frustration brings anger bit terness resentment This is natu ral and normal It is normal for a little child to be angry when he cannot have when he wants right now But so often we teach a little fellow to deny his anger especially anger toward parents Parents have to stand as au thority Parents not only give love and comfort to a child but they must also deny him or some times enforce what the child doesnt want This is part of the job of parenthood But when a child shows his normal resentment against au thority often the parent is shock ed and scolds the child Before long the child learns its safer to hold in the anger When he does express it he is made to feel guil ty and bad for doing so and this in turn builds up more anger When anger is hidden inside it accumulates it grows bigger and bigger and may spill over into anger against all restraint anger against all people Its healthier for the child to be helped to express anger and bitterness Let him know you un derstand how he feels that you dont blame him for feeling bit ter that he cannot have ice cream If he gets his anger expressed without being made to feel guilty about it its over and done with and doesnt build up inside to add fuel to the next episode A child who is abole to express his normal anger is free to love Stored up anger poisons love expressed anger leaves love free to be felt and expressed too Understanding of feelings but control of is a far healthier plan than denial of a natural normal emotion Under standing and control will give Laura the security she needs to build up her own self control and not interfere with her ability to love Office of Rep Fulton Is World of Its Own WASHINGTON Cap itol Hill office
