Mr. George and Mrs. Bessie Jackson Stewart and their children, Glenna, Mattie, Eleanor, George, Jr., Philip, and a grandson, Wendell.

When physical punishments do work, parents usually feel guilty and they try to win hack the child's favor by over indulging him. I do not recommend that you, as a parent, be either punitive or permissive. Rather, in this column a new approach for dealing with family problems will be presented--a demo- cratic approach. We are all living in a Democratic Ere when everybody, including our children, is aware of his rights. One of the problems in son, Mrs. Isaac and Mrs. Hattie and their children, Ernest, John Williams, Claasle, Isaac, Magnolia and Viola. Isaac, Jr. mar- lied Mildred McDowell and I remember only their chil- dren, Sonny, Sharon, and Mary Frances. Viola mar- ried William Tolliver and their children were Billy, Yvonne and Katherine. Magnolia and Viola used to baby sit my brother and me while otr parents worked. Aunt Mac used to send cake and pie by Viola to school for us. Mrs. Cash- well's (I-cannot remember first name( children were Isaac, Saint James, Sarah, Richard, Moses and Mary. Mr. Saint James and Mrs. Octavia Cashwell lived be- side us in our first house on the Tannery Row. Their children were Sardie, Ger- trnde and James. Mr. Saint worked at C. J. Casdorph Store and used to bring my brother and me fresh fruit home every evening. The tannery was shut down then and we played on the ponds and would see him coming and run to meet him.

He also took many of us youngsters for rides in his boat on the Greenbrier River when we all lived on the Tannery Row.

After the tannery closed in the late 1920's or early 1930's, my parents and Aunt Mae and Uncle Winston went to Paw Paw {near Cumberland, Mary- land! to work in the tannery there. They then returned to Marlinton aRer the death of their brother, Oliver "Bubie" in Franklin. They thanworked for the B. B. Williams', both at their home in Marlinton and their farm in Hilisboro, which I believe is near the birthplace of Mrs. Pearl S. Buck. They used to work at the old Minnehaha Springs Hotel.
