Defense Measures
LONDON, Nov. 3.- (P) -Prime
Minister Neville Chamberlain's gov-
ernment tonight won its second vote
of cofidence in two days when an op-
posltio1, motion censuring the gov-
ernment for Britain's inadequate de-
fenses was defeated 355 votes to 130.
The opposition motion asked the
House of Commons to censure the
govenrments "admitted unprepared-
ness to protect the civil population
when the country was brought to the
brink of war" during the September
Czechoslovak crisis.
Commons Give Approval
Commons then gave approval to a
government-proposed amendment to
the censure motion supporting "the
governinent's determination to com-
plete with the utmost speed the mea-
sures necessary to provide for the
country's needs."
Government spokesman had prom-
ised a triple effort along that line to
"regain the insular security" of-Brit-
The House of Lords meanwhile
adopted by 55 to 6 votes a govern-
ment motion approving early applica-
tion of the, Anglo-Italian Easter
friendship accord. Commons approved
a similar motion last night.
Sir Samuel Hoare, Home Secretary
who now turns over civilian defense
measures to vigorous Sir John Ander-
son, new Lord Privy Seal, declared
in the Lower House:

"This country can make as good a
system of passive defense as any in
the world.
"We are determined to make it ef-
fective and see that it can play lts fuji
part V(ith a substantial increase of the
air force and a greatly increased sys-
tem of anti-aircraft guns..
He said Britain's system of air raid
precautions, despite all its imperfec-
tions, would stand comparison with
that of any country in the world with
the exception of Germany.

Knight Points
Out 4 Causes
Of Child Woes
Childhood No Paradise,'
Says Educator; Parents
Hear Prof. Nash Today
Conference Ends
Tomorrow Morning
Four major reasons why "childhood
is no paradise" and four factors con-
tributing to a child's well-being were
cited yesterday by Dr. F. B. Knight.
of Purdue University at a dinner in
the League that climaxed the day's
activities of the ninth annual Par-
ent Education Institute.
"The child resents his forced abdi-
cation from the royalty of babyhood,"
Dr. Knight said, "he is continually
meeting disillusionment in his par-
ents and his surroundings, he finds
it difficult to respect and understand
the facts that are forced upon him,
and he must use new capacities that
he did not need and does not want."
To counter these factors, Dr.
Knight suggested in forceful terms
that parents should endeavor to re-
move fear, encourage the child's curi-
osity, give him both love and under-
standing, and live in a genuine atmos-
phere, on the family's own level.
"Parent Education and the Na-
tional Congress" was the title of the
first lecture of the day, given at 9:30
arm. by Mrs. 'J. K. Pettengill, presi-
dent of the National Congress of Par-
ents and Teachers. She emphasized
the fact that the parent-teacher asso-
ciations of the nation should serve
as interpretive agents in parent edu-
In parent education, Mrs. Pettengill
said, four relationships are important:
that of the parent to children, that
of the school to the home, the com-
munity-parent relationship and the
relation of parents to society as a
whole. The constantly changing feat-
ures of all these aspects of parent
education are elucidated by modern
devices like motion pictures, radio,
books, and magazines and coordinat-
ed by the PTA, she added.
Parents should' develop beneficial
attitudes toward their children and
in the children toward themselves, it
was decided by the participants in the
Panel Class in Parent Education held
at 10 a.m. These attitudes may be
attained through various means and
must take various forms according to
the problems with which they deal.
The speakers during the dicussion
emphasized the need for taking chil-
dren into positions of responsibility
