Many beg -the teacher to give Jack rnore lessons to o ot homo "lo keep him off the streets." The teacher usually takes the view that it is out of her province to keep somebody's boy or girl off the streets. And she is right.

During the night tbe water carts bad sprinkled the dusty streets and for a brief space during the early Hours freshness persisted. By halt past nine the heat was unendurable The sky seemed a copper bowl Inverted over the face of the earth. Nothing, however, could keep the crowds from the sale counters at L.acy'3. They pressed in—women in thin silks: women in cheap cottons, the seams straining under their bulging arms; women with expensive handbags and clean gloves: women with neither and with parcels wrapped In sleazy paper, tied with thin, unreliable strings. Boots hated them all to day with a deadly hatred. It was agony to be courteous, to force .Interest Into one's dying tones. Would the morning never end? went on. "You're to see Masterson this afternoon—about four. Cafi you get oti?" Miss Hotighton was within hearing- Goota must not give herself away. "I—I don't know. Not unless It's most awfully Important." "The thing Is practically sewed ip. He lust wants to see you and cool la the burning heut of tfie afternoon. Everywhere was order. Big desks with neat piles of papers clipped and weighted with clear He's in the Mardell Building. Fitly- seventh street. Got that?" "Yes. I've got It." "Well, be there like a good Bin.

"It'a most liTcgu.lar. ..." "1 know, aud thanks so much,' Boots drifted away. She would have to get out — somehow — at four o'clock. The early afternoon hours Tiass squares; shining typewriters; wheeled by. "If I go,' Boots thought, "and nothing comes of It I'll lose my lob here; I'll be done . She was fatalistic about that It had been a life-saver to for." .lob. her. On the . other bafld Mastersoo s book shop would open up a new life. Usnls naturally was optimistic but It was absurd to say It was "all sewed up" when Mastcrsoti hadn't even talked to her. At half past three Boots walked over' to Mr Bliss who was signing a salesbook with a nourish. Her heart was thudding painfully. He.looked wilted; even his white carnation drooped. "I'm feeling 111. Mr. Bliss." It was true. Nervousness had given her a feeling of nausea and her head ached. Everything swam tie- young women with shining waved hair, crisp blouses, oowdered noses. Boots had a dazed impression of almost superhuman tidiness. She was to learn later that Burton Masterson's passion was order and cleanliness and that hg transmitted, this to his staff. Meantime the effect .was to make her conscious of her own slightly crumpled dark frock. The collar hud been fresh that morning but hours In the confusion and heat of Lncy's had stolen Its • virgin crispness. If only she had had time to go home and change. ... She knocked nt 421.

"Me was to deliver on tho first. We're getting protty fed up. The advertising department Is on my neck and you can tell httn I'm of two minds about tha whole thing. If we can get Bay-field I'll let him go. His contract's up. ..." tie motioned to n chair nnd Boots sat down. Tho rapid fire conversation went on. Evidently the person at the other end of the wire was attempting to conciliate the big publisher with very little success. "Ca.u't ba done," he barked finally Into the mouthpiece. "You tell him it's my uitlmjitum. Delivered copy on Thursday or we are nil washed "Well. well. they help to spread infections.

So far it has been accepted as a matter of course, cources being arranged in such a manner that they could not possibly be covered in the term without study of school.

Most prevalent type of skin infection among football players is ringworm, of the . type, that causes so- caJleA a)hlete's fopt. This, however, •will affect not only the feet, but also the grout and'oj.ji.er parts of the body, when cjothing is interchanged or improperly cleaned. The feet may be bathed regularly in solutions containing one-half per cent -of sodium hypossulphite, new widely used in locker rooms of gymnasiums and golf clubs. The ringworm of the groin may be controlled by seeing to it that the supporters are washed every day. White: underclothing may be worn under the supporter and amoniated mercury oinments may be put on the skin to control the infection. Special care - should be given to towels us5ed in locker rooms. Towels should never be put on the floor while the athlete bathes and then used on the body. Towels put on the floor in this way will pick up'ringworm infection and then transfer it to various parts of the body. Ringworm infection spreads mostly in the presence of moisture. Athletes, 1 and others as well, should make sure that their feet and socks are dry before the socks and shoes are put on. The humid air was. like a.ta.ng.lble j fore.her. thins, pressing against tier chest, ' stifling her. Once a girl fainted, down a crowded aisle, and the other clerks peered at each other with harried eyes ,as a space was cleared for the sufferer's passing Boots saw the hands ot her watch crawl around to her lunch period with a passionate sensation of gratitude. She would have Iced tea she would bathe her face and •lands. . . .. As she went to her locker the " He paused Impatiently, .tapping his pointed pencil against the counter.

If -the work is top lengthly or top hard to be .assimilated in six school hours, she has no recourse but to assign certain studies for home. This is governed, too, by the number of pupils in a class and the number of grades in a room. Sometimes; it happenes that there is plenty ot time for study anrj written recitations, but no time for preparation in the class room. She has, of course, the power to assign "repeats" for the child who has failed to grasp certain memory work, or the child who requires much repetition tp grasp an idea. This also includes the child who missed time in school. I believe all teachers would be happy if it were possible to get away j from home work. Happy is thoj teacher who does not have a "key", grade to teach and who therefore can go more lightly on the extra problems or map drawing. When we hear a child say, "Missj Smith is nice, she never gives any night work," it very 1 often happens! that Miss Smith herself is fortunate in having conditions in her room and the grade arrangement favorable to more hcme freedom. But what pleases one parent may incense another. It would be impossible to suit everybody. Certainly if n child is to be kept off.the street it is not the lecher's responsibility but the parents.
