Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, April LETHBRIDQE Roosevelt's daughter recalls father's image By GEORGE VECSEY New York Times COVE NECK, N.Y. Mrs. Ethel Roosevelt Derby does not care for the limelight. The 82 year old daughter of Theodore Roosevelt is "as reticent about publicity as my sister is comfortable with it" a reference to her half sister, Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth, the irrepressible grand dame of Washington, who recently celebrated her 90th birthday with rollicking interviews with the press. "I have an instinct for says Mrs. Derby, a widow who lives quietly in nearby Oyster Bay and who is fond of travelling around the country. But when she is at home, Mrs. Derby will visit her childhood home of Sagamore Hill here once a salon for statesmen, historians and artists and now a national historical site. And sometimes she conducts a special tour there herself. If President Theodore Roosevelt is only a myth to the visitors that Sagamore Hill receives each year, he becomes personified when his daughter conducts the tour with graciousness, military command intellectual pride. "Do ask she instructed, staring directly at two college students who had joined her tour party the other day. "I love to answer ques- tions from young people. It is the only way you will learn anything." The learning began with a guide book. Theodore Roosevelt contracted to build Sagamore Hill for in 1884, the year his first wife died after giving birth to Alice. In 1886 he married Edith Kermit Carow, who became the mother of four sons and Mrs. Derby. Roosevelt rapidly became New York City's police commissioner, governor of the state, vice president and then president after the assassination of William McKinley in 1901. At 42, he was the youngest man ever to serve as president. (John F. Kennedy was 43 when he entered the White House in 1961 But every chance he got, President Roosevelt left Washington for his 22-room mansion overlooking Long Island Sound, where his huge clan romped and read and talked. They wore out their visitors and their vigor endures today. Mrs. Derby's tour began in the library, which houses the thousands of books her father read and the 20 he wrote. Mrs. Derby pointed to an elaborate inscription framed on the wall. "Do you know what that is9" she asked challengmgly and then despaired when a visitor conceded his limitations. "Oh, she said." That is the signature of Oliver Cromwell. The symbol means 'protector.' My father wrote a history of Cromwell. A friend in England thought it was so good he presented my father with this signature." Mistaken identity Iris Nowell points out the consequences of being clearly guilty of mistaken identity.

"Don't think of him as a Mrs. Derby said sharply. "He was a conservationist. Sometimes he shot deer for food. He also helped classify many animals. But he was not a hunter. Young people who visit get the wrong impression." Mrs. Derby called attention to a candlestick on the desk. It was used, she recalled, to supply the wax for the seal on the Russo-Japanese Peace Treaty of 1905, which was hammered out in Sagamore Hill with the president applying bearhugs of personality and wisdom to both sides. "People think of T. R. as a said Mrs. Derby. he was the first American ever to win the Nobel Peace Mrs. Derby moved into the high ceilmged living room, that also contained thousands of more books. She opened a volume of "Die inscribed by William, Emperor of Germany. "I can see my father said Mrs. Derby, "sitting in this chair reading a book. We would be perched over there (on a bench in front of the My mother would be sitting there in between. He could read a book a day. He had enormous concentration." Finally she stopped by the dining room, recalling how the family dressed for dinner "in those days." But she also remembered the informal gatherings the children sitting among diplomats and family friends, the talk shifting from politics to legends of the old west ''He did not confide everything in she said of her father "But he usually told us what he was doing." Cartoons from "those days" show swarms of secret service agents trying to follow the president and his clan through the woods and coves of Sagamore Hill while reporters crouched behind bushes to report that T. R. Jr. had skinned his knee or that Alice had a brand new gown. Life was not isolated for presidents even then. "The secret servicemen were our Mrs. Derby said "They were very nice. But we were aware of them." "We were trained never to let any stranger come up to my father, particularly with his hands in his she continued. We always kept a watch, We took it as part of life. We lived with danger and accepted it." Happiness is... NOOK Opening Soon!

In every city there are newly formed organizations for parents who beat their kids, often unmercifully, when they get on their nerves. Parents who do this can now get help without fear of being prosecuted by the law. Thank God we now realize they are sick. These problem parents are often provided with group therapy so they can discuss with other parents their frustrations and anxieties and whatever else is behind the abuse. Often the child is given therapy, too. This helps him see the parents' side, so he can understand and forgive them for the mindless beatings. Every day I read where some mother or father has burned a child's body with cigarettes, or beaten him severely, then told the emergency-room admissions office at the hospital that the child "fell out of the car" or "was knocked down a flight of stairs by the dog.'' Now there is real help for these children and their mentally-ill parents. Will you please tell them how to get it? Concerned In Kansas Dear Concerned: Thank you for giving me the opportunity. The list of organizations that counsel parents who abuse their children can be had bv writing to CALM (Child Abuse Listening Meditation, Post Office Box 718, Santa Barbara, California 93102.
