A meeting place with an auditorium suitable for convention gath-
erings i,h kosher kitchen facilities is sorely lacking.
The combining of the offices of all Jewish organizations at one
central place is bu. another idea thai has veen ventured. It would ^u,
down the overhead cos, for all of them and increase tremendously
their efficiency, eliminating lost motion, overlapping of efforts and
insure whole-hearted cooperation among them. One central office
would also increase the accessibility to the newcomer as well as ,he
resident seeking information and it is evident how much easier and
quicker they could be directed to the proper channel.
Suggestions have been made from time to time and solution to these
and many other problems are being offered continuously. Communities
throughout the country that have councils, report that progressive
strides have been made through this agency, and much is being accom-
plished that heretofore needing united action had been left undone.
Many areas are now instituting councils.

solution of the aforementioned problems and others that arise. The

action. Who is going to start the hall rolling?___________________

Avoiding the Humdrum
Before Shirley Temple begins a
new movie, her mother and teach-
er always tell her the story about
the country in which the play is
set. This gives her a full back-
ground in her work and arouses
her interest in the character that
she is to portray. That is one rea-
son why she is such a quick pupil,
and why she learns so intelligent-
ly. It is very sensible to use such
tactics on your child, too. She
need not necessarily be an actress.
Children will learn more quick-
ly if they have an interest in the
particular subject. Add interest
to the task by expanding its back-
ground. Any simple deed will fit
into this system. For example,
consider a way to teach your little
son how to tie his shoelace. The
subject of knots is interesting to
any boy. Let him know about the
different uses of various knots,
the way boy scouts study them.
Then, whenever he must tie his
shoelace, it is no longer a hum-
drum job. Seeing them, in a larg-
er scope, makes life's little duties
