GRADES THROUGH THE First Grade News In number class each of us has made a little set of flash cards to work with at home. Most of us found it was easy to add one and zero to all of the numbers from one to nine, but we are doing a lot of concept work so that we can add two without counting. Our rule is "Don't ever, ever, ever count your fingers." Our science classes have been about the weather. One cloudy, cold, rainy, winter day we did our best to put into a picture the bad weather which was keeping us inside all day. We each have a calendar in our desk and we keep track of the weather and the temlperature each day. In Language class we have talked about the mistaken ideas and fears we had when we were "Little." Some of these things were told to us by adults and others were the products of our own imaginations. We would like to share some of them with you. Bonnie thought the rain was caused by God squeezing a sponge. David J. believed it rained when the birds poked holes in the clouds, thought it rained and Barby when the THE EMBLEM OF DEPENDABILITY angels took showers. Jimmy thought the thunder was caused by a man rolling a barrel down steps. Susan thought thunder sounded like the people in hoax-en were bowling. Charlie and Diana have worried for fear cracks in the ground would net deeper and they would fall in when they crossed the yard in the dark. Patty and Chris thought that night came when God turned off the sun with a light switch. Many of us thought the key contained the pnvor which made the ear i;o, and nearly all of us have been afraid that then- were animals and other things hiding in the dark. On Thursday we welcomed to our room Susan Welsh and on Friday we won.' sorry to say good-bye to Marlene Larson who moved to her new home near West Union. Second Grade News We have been working very hard the last few weeks on cursive writing and have lieeii enjoying every minute of it. We know how to make .several letters but it is still quite a trick for us to join the letters to make words and to read a written sen • encc. We helped Billy Gillette, David On- and Jimmy Miles celebrate heir birthdays in February. Those receiving 100 in spell- ng were Laderyl Bierbower, Ei- een Bonjour, Billy Gillette, oycc Hull, Cheryl Hienemann. laryl Hienemann, Darla McBride, Jimmy Niles, David Or, lyde Pickett, Diane Pattison, Mary Schmidt, Julie Smith, Norna Tripp, Terry Van Buren, and .owell Voshell. * » » • Fourth Grade News FEEDS "You can pay more — but you can't buy better" Mfd. by BELL BRAND FARM SUPPLY Fayette, Iowa We are at the end of another fix weeks period.

Th;;t posture is always the basis of good appearance is another truism. A reminder will not come amiss. Good posture makes clothes look their very best The right foundation garments are a big hcl}.> to good posture and are essential to good appearance. To know what not to wear is just as important as to know whal to wear. A single important piece of jewelry or a neat collar can lift an ordinary outfit into distinction. That buying a new sweater is a tonic for the spirit is, to be sure, a elieke. We sometimes tend to forget what something new-to-wear can do for us by giving a rosy-tinted view of life. HOW'S YOUR BATING ETIQUETTE? When asked where you'd like to go should you: (1) Have a plan or two, (2) Pick the town's t«p nitery, (3) Shrug your shoulders? If that young man leaves the doings up to you—the "I don't can-" routine's no help. Have a plan or two. But don't insist on dinner at the Plush Room. Make several suggestions and let him choose whalever's in line with his financial bracket. Suppose he admires your dress, do you say — (1) "Really? This old sack?" (2) "Are you kidding?" (3) "Thank you." Some damsels imagine they must shrug off a compliment. But it only flusters your date when you depreciate something he admires. So ... next time ITJ losses a bouquet your way— sweetly say, "Thank you." It's a jnark of poise. After a late date, should a damsel — (1) Invite him into the house. (2) Say good night at the door. (3) Thank him. When the right'.-; no longer young, there's no call for your date to linger. Dismiss him "raciously at the door. (Your .family will appreciaie it!) And please—no "thank-you's" either.
