From England they crossed the channel to St. Malo, France, where they visited St. Michael's monas-i tery, which figured prominently in the French Revolution. Cycling through France gave a clear picture of the increasing smallness of the very fertile plots and the antiquated methods of ag- riculture employed by the farmers.

They should be taught the safe use of outdoor toys such as roller skates, tricycles, bicycles, scooters and wagons. "By learning what the schools are teaching and, in cooperation with schools and traffic officials, help your children develop safe traffic habits and attitudes," Pryde said.
