Education is a continuing process and it does not necessarily stop with the end of -formal schooling. I fully expect to go back to school someday when the opportunity presents itself. Meanwhile there's quite u bit to be said for the vicarious post-graduate course I'm taking right now, I'm being educated by three little minds in three little pointed' heads—our dearly beloved offspring. THE FIRST TIME I WENT IhrmiRh school, either the courses were easier or 1 must have spent a grout deal of time wool-gatherinff. The kids nowadays, even down in the grades, learn things I hadn t heard of when I was in school. Social studies, names of plants, perspective in art, three part harmony in music, Robert's Rules of Order, Mendel's Law, and many things such as pronouns, direct and indirect objects, common denominators that 1 once knew and have forgotten. They also have another thing, invented since my school days—homework. ^ HOMEWORK IS A BENEFICIAL educational process, designed to supplement the youngsters' classroom learning, by an advocate of adult education. The adult education is for the parents, for a little learning is bound to rub off on a s parent during homework even if he merely holds the book to check on the right answers Due to the looming semester 4csts, we've had quite a bit of homework &t our"house.lately.

Bill,who is studying Invertebrates for Biology in the kitchen answers, "Tell Jane Ellen to go by air and you won't have to answer the ^question," A few moments later there's a snbrt from Jean'in -the bedroom. "Ha. .Bill! You think you're so smart! The next question* in'our workbook is, "If Jeane Ellen goes to India by air, what' continents will she puss over?" Then there is a three-way argument over .whether the best route to India is east oveV the Atlantic or west over the Pacific. IN THE LIVING ROOM, MARY ANN is trying to attach memory gimmicks so'that she can remember the names of paintings and "their : artists. "Any picture about farming like, 'The Gleaners is pretty apt to be by Millet. That's easy to remember because there is a grain'named millet. Just so I don'.t>get it mixed up and say a picture- is by Corn." "The Age of Innocence" is also easy to remember she'tells us.

NV-4 — 15' wide 4 flexible sections IN > ANY HOMEWORK SESSION, there are frequent interruptions for glasses of milk or kool-aide, a slice of pie, a mound of ice cream or a peanut butter sandwich. An army is said to travel on its stomach; scholars study on -their's. The thing that puzzles me is that the kids can learn almost anything they put their minds to, but they never seem .to huve enough genious left over to put away their dirty milk" glasses,'"close the cupboard doors, pick up the orange'peels or remove their shoes and socks from the middle of the living room floor! HOMEWORK IS OFTEN USED AS an excuse to Ret out of household chores. Jean tells me her best method of learning is to read aloud and will I please listen to this story about Abraham Lincoln. The only time she can possibly find to do this is when there are dishes to do. Naturally, she can't be expected to dry glasses with a book in her hand, so she is excused from the process. While I scour the electric fry-pan I hear about Abe borrowing books to read at home. I point out that Mr Lincoln did his homework by the light of --the fire after -he had completed his chores. I also remind her that she too has a borrowed book—from the Algona Public Library and that she will have to pay her fine out of her own money. Jean quickly, switches to a story about Clara Barton. ..,.,. ONE LOCAL FATHER, A former teacher, found that his son wasn't getting very good grades in the subject the father once- taught. He was asked why he didn't help the boy with his homework. The father replied, "When I was teaching school, I got so sick of -students saying that this is the way Dad does it that I made up my mind if my own kids couldn't do their own homework they could go ahead and flunk!" AT OUR HOUSE we don't give too much help with homework beyond holding the book for the kids and it is just as well, loo If I were to be perfectly truthful with our offspring, and I air not about to be, I would have to admit that although we keep digging at them about their studies, they are all three geeting bellei grades than either their father or their mother did. However, we take it as a personal triumph when; they successfully pass a test make an improvement in a subject or bring home an A. But the thing that thrills me most of all is the enjoyment they seem to go out "of learning. This zest for knowledge can be a quality tha will stand them in good stead all of their lives. / * + * FATHER CAME HOME FROM his fishing trip loaded will fish It looks as if I'll get a chance to-try cooking them just abou every way there is. So far we've had/them plain fried after they were dipped in bisquick but I am templed to try cooking Ihcrr the way one of my men readers suggests. You make a baiter of pancake flour and beer and then fry the fish. He says it docsn t work so well if the people drinks the beer, gets fried and then cooks Ihe pancake flour in fish. I HAVE SOME NICE baking-size-Northerns and I'm also going to adapl a chicken-cooking recipe to fish. The Ruth Circle girls down at the Presbyterian church were fixing chicken for Men s Club the other day. They dipped the pieces of chicken in melted butler or salad oil, rolled them in corn flakes crumbs, placed them on foil lined cookie sheets and baked them in the oven. I Iried il at home and the chicken was delicious.-1 don't sec why it wouldn t work just as well lor fish. IF YOU HAVE ANY ideas on fish-cooking, please send them to rne to use for next week's recipe, Any other recipes would also be welcome because I'm running very low. —GRACE. j CROSS-CUT ACTION KNOCKS OUT WEEDS see th? «fi%s*t, cross-cut tooth »r- rengement pn the ring.
