SOLD INSURANCE But times were riper for in- surance salesmen The McClungs. who eventually had five children, made the first of many moves when Mr. McClung became a circuit manager for Manufacturers' Life Meanwhile. Nellie began a writing and lecturing career, influenced by her mother-in- law, an early leader of the Women's Christian Temperance Union, and Sylvia Pankhurst, the British suffragette who toured Canada in 1911 Mark McClung remembers when the anti-suffragettes campaigned savagely against his mother "My father always saw the humorous side of he said At a very early age. he trained me to shaft people good-naturedly and I've never forgotten him telling me if I ran up against people who dis- agreed with mother's politics to say 'My name is Mark McClung My mother is a suf- fragette and I've never known a mother's love "I never did have to say it. except when on display to amuse my parents" friends and they, of course, thought it was hilarious." MARRIAGE HAPPY Mr McClung said his parents' happy and fruitful marriage was the to his mother's success. "Both were strong Liberals and humanitarians For mother, the Liberal party was a good vehicle lor her liberal ideas, but once the party deviated, it was wrong and Nellie was right.' he said Nellie's political career was launched in 1911 with the for- mation of the Winnipeg Political Equality League Its major success was to secure women the vote in Manitoba and the initiation of suf- fragette legislation The McClungs then moved to Edmonton and Nellie was elected to the Alberta legislature in 1921.

What do you mean suggesting that the wild, un- controllable brat could be hyperkmetic and his mother should have him tested? You went on to say they have drugs for such kids Isn't it bad enough that millions of adults have become pill-poppers? You want to get the kids on tranks. too9 What most kids need these days is a well-placed hand on the you-know-what. The tip- off was when his mother just sat there and let the hellion run wild And it wasn't even their home They were guests! You really blew it. An- nie Dear D.: There ARE plenty of kids running wild who could profit from a potch on the posterior But some of them ARE hyperkmetic and all the potching in the world won't help. I view this column as an op- nnr-tijnitv IA educate Millions of mothers never heard of the word hyperkmetic. much less the problem I believe in ruling out organic and neurologic problems first It is easy for a professional to test a child for hyperkineticism If the doctor says the child is normal, then go ahead and potch him But wouldn't it be a sharne if the kid were not normal and you never took the trouble to find out?
