Tn^MwrWre t_vwTd PTay ^SnTa "CTatflf -With tax Dollars .Are Fon Reasonable? If ever a word was entitled to sue its abusers, it is the word reasonable? Just think of the way it is used. "He will be reasonable." In short, he can see where HIS interest lies '— and act ac- oordingly, even if it means shading a point. "Oh, he's reasonable." With the inference he won't be too troubled about ethics. There is a sort of contempt about the word, as though the reasonable man wasn't worthy of much respect. Now the dictionary definition is quite different. It reads "sensible; having the faculty of reasoning; rational; governed by reason in acting or thinking." To go further — in defining "reason," "the entire mental or rational nature of man, as distinguished from the in telligence of the brute; that which is right or befitting." Therefore, a reasonable man should mean one who acts or thinks things through, who is not motivated by the an imal instinct of self-preservation, but who does that which is right." A truly reasonable man will do his own thinking. He will ndt run'with the mob. When he. figures out a. course of action, he will adhere to that course. He will not be swayed from his purpose unless he is genuinely convinced — and then <only in line with his basic principles. A reasonable nian will h'sten to arguments, but he will evaluate both >tlie arguments and the arguer, analyzing not merely the facte but the motive behind their presentation. A reasonable tfiah Shows moderation in what. he. does and says; He spends more time thinking than he does talking. And when foe does talk he has something to say because he knQWs what he thinks. A reasonable man may not necessarily be brilliant — but he is always sound, because he has reasoned things out and through to a logical conclusion. A reasonable person is a good one to, have for a friend He likes you because you are you, not for what he can get out of you. You can depend on him in good times and bad. By the way — which kind of "reasonable" are you? Counseling The Aged In ..arlier times, when families moved less and were more closely knit, the aged were generally cared for at hojne, One reason was that for most of them there was no place else to go. In our time, many of the aged spend, their final years in old people's homes. This does not mean that older persons commonly see life in a home for the aged as a desirable thing. Some have deep misgivings about going to. such a place, and become despondent at the thought of it. New insight into, this problem has emerged from psychological tests evaluated by Valencia N. Brock, professor of nursing at the University of Wisconsin. She finds that the period of waiting before entry into a home for the aged ••— commonly six months to a year — is Kkely to bring emotional stress which may become so severe as to. require corrective therapy. Apparently, says Professor Brock, the waiting period triggers psychological reactions that may be quite disturbing. In her judgment these feelings often result from fantasies and preconceptions of what life in an institution is like. They are likely to disappear gradually "after entry into the "home, she says, but counseling in advance may greatly ease the problem. It is a thing to be kept in mind by those Responsible for.'the well-being of aged relatives. ®tt$ Gleam Of Light Only a sh6tt time ago, it apbeared that little Czecho- .itovjifcia's jgoVernnient had pulled off the astonishing trick df forcing MosCow to back down. Then Ulbricht of East terman hastened to confer with Czech officials, and again seemed that he had been bested and that the process of tibralization would toe allowed to continue more or less unhampered. Now all tlfat.:3fe a bitter memory. Those who suggested that it all lodfaed "too easy, and that Czechoslovakia would _e_sel the iron heel,,hkve proved to be right. Nor is there #nica. cause for hope that the United States, the United Na- tionS, world opinion or anything else can avert a heartbreak- ij_£..sptback fo Czech aspirations. Yet the picture is not pholly black. _3Tor a fundamental weakfte&s of the. Soviet political system, a weakness glimpsed from time to time in the past, has again been exposed. By iseverting to the use #f nsiked force to impK) _fe its Will on a sma sateite power, Moscow has shown thstt it ai.ked the poiticamoxfey to achieve this. That is a. damaging confession of weakness, It will not heh> C_*choslovakia nqw—but in time that evident weakness may cause Moscow rnose trouble than it baifgaiaei-fer.
