That's what cheating amounts to. And though it :nay be beaten in petty in- stances, it can't in the long run, for the Rules of the Game are made by the majority--and the majority is go- ing to see that they're kept. Your boy will understand that more clearly than you may suppose. For unless troubled by some blockade or wrong slant that ought to be sought out and set straight for him. no nor- real boy wants to stand alone against the rest of the world. Cheating usually can be traced to one of a very few causes. It may, grow out. of laziness, unwillingness to study or work, fear of punishment, desire to "shine", or a feelin~ that adult-made rules are unfair. The existing temptation is to nag a boy who cheats, or to watch his move- ments wiith accusation in your eye. Obviously that kills his self-respect. 1,063,(lFd individuals were given food, Aptdicants for refunds of 1934-35 And if he is spirited, probably he will shelter, clothing, medical care, build- taxes which may be. claimed under cheat in sheer defiance of your sus- ing repairs, household equipment or technicalities which form the basis for picion. vocational assistance, a proposed court action, may file their Unfortunately, cheating is prevalent Assistance was given during the 5"ear to 271,676 ex-service men or their families; 43,617 :hen in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard; First Aid instructions to 256,884 per- sons; established 2,796 Emergency First Aid stations and mobile units on the Highways; enrolled 81,291 addi- tional life savers; Red Cross Public Health nurses made 1,035, 764 visits; and Home Hygiene and Care of the Sick instruction zvas given to 54,830 persons in 4,204 classes.

We urge upon all the people of our constituency- that they "avail themselves of this opportunity to come together at the Communion Service. Let us rally to the standard of our common Lord. On Sunday evening the church will hold a patriotic service in honor of the approaching Armistice Day. On this occasion Mrs. Isabel Cline Renton has consented to sing three' solos. W'e esteem' it a great privilege to have the services of this gifted singer for a Sunday evening program. Our large choir under the direction of Miss Lois A. Elliott,, with Miss Gross 'at the organ, will be heard in one of its best anthems. The minister will deliver the patri- otic address. All patriotic organiza- tions, and all patriots who are not worshiping elsewhereat that hour, are invited to. attend. John B. Toomay. -0, ATTENTION, MASONS Regular Stated Meeting tomorrow evening, November 5th. Come and hear the Master and Senior Warden report on the proceedings at the Grand Lodge, recently held in San Francisco. claims at Avalon City, beginning Tlmrsday, October 28th. Claims also may be nlcd at the County Auditor's office on the third floor of the Hall oi Records, m Los Angeles. The branch office is being opened by County Auditor H. A; Payne to convemcnce the public and in compli- ance with the desire of the Board of Superwsors to g~ve all taxpayers every possible opportumty to participate in refunds in tlae event that the Supreme Court should rule any portion of the 19.54-35 taxes refundable Branch claim stations are being opened by the County Auditor in ev- ery one of the torty-odd incorporated cities of Los Angeles County, as well as at the Chamber of Cona:nerce of- rices in Hollywood, North Hollywood, Eagle Rock, Venice, West Los Ange- les, Wihnington, San Pedro, and at the SouthsiOe Chamber, 5927 South *fain, the County Court House at Lancaster and at the:Belvedere Court House, 227 North Gage St. In addition, claim forms a~e being inserted in the. annual tax bills being mailed this week to more than 300,000 Los Angeles County taxpayers by the Tax Collector H. L. Byram. Refund claims must be filed with the county. within three years of the date of pay- ment of taxes, although no action will be taken toward paying claims until the Supreme Court has made its de- cision on ttle alleged invadidity of the levy, Mr. Payne vointed out today. Claims must be filed by the person : who paid the taxes, or by an success- or in interest and must be"signed and sworn to before a Notary Public or deputy county clerk. Claim blanks may be mailed or filed personally. The tax refund procedure is almost, identical with that applying to the 1933-34 taxes when thousands of tax- payers filed demands for refund fol- lowing a test suit by the Southern Service Corporation attacking the val- idity of the 1933-34 tax levy. For quick resutts-.'rrv an Adletl in games and sports. That is due chiefly to the custom (largely sub- scribed to by adults) of heroizing the boy who outshines his fellows on the athletic field, to the complete exclu- sion of those who may try hard, but don't win. Often a boy becomes so eager for honor and acclaim that he is moved to accomplish it by fair means or foul. Contrary to common custom, honor should go also to the good loser, the boy who does his level best, who betters his record whether he wins or not--as well as to the boy who walks away with the laurels. But even under existing handicaps, the athletic field, prol~erly supervised, is a splendid place for a young boy to develop a sense of honor and sportsmanship. Curiously, a boy who wouldn't think of cheating in other things may do so in examinations. And that is some- how understandable. It is a game that youth plays against adults, against experience, against faculty. Examinations, a youngster sometimes feels, are unfair. In that case, he should not hesitate to talk it over frankly with his instructor. Perhaps he can write a paper better revealing his knowledge without the prepared. questions. Frankness may make cheating unnecessary. With proper direction, a boy usuat-~ ly outgrows cheating. If he doesn't, the trail is apt to broaden as he grows ohler, to encompass other dishonesties which may warp his character and ruin his life. It is a chain whose first links may appear inconsequential, but Which needs to be broken early, care- fully--and very, very definitely.
