You'll get advice to help Columbus, to create world peace When I was a child I always wondered when was a good time to talk. You couldn't do it In school, at the table, in the car, in church, in bed, or when someone else was talking. I think I was 15 or so before I realized my name wasn't "Shhh." Today in this column is a good time for children to talk. A Mr. Bernagozzi who teaches the third grade in a school in New York puts out a class newspaper every month, and his students have some interesting things to say. When asked if they were Christopher Columbus's mom or dad, what are some of the things they'd tell him before he left on his voyage, they answered: "Don't fall overboard ... be nice to the Indians ... take a bath once a month ... put on new clothes before you land ... don't fall off the edge of the world ... don't hog all the food at dinner ... wash your hands before eating ... don't forget to write ... put on suntan lotion ... don't fool around At Wit's End By Erma Bombeck with the steering wheel and bring back gold for us." (The only thing they missed was "Go to the you-know-where before you leave home.") When asked what they would tell him if he was still alive, one child wrote, "Yo don't have to go around the world now for spices or jewels or silk. You can go to Macy's and the malls to get what you need." Given one wish, another child wrote, "I wish that I could go to the nursing home and make everyone feel better. I know that people in the nursing home used to be teachers and nurses and have other important jobs. I would want them all to be well again." And another, "I wish for the whole world to stop being bad. There would be no more crimes like killing and stealing. People would get along together everywhere." They talk about their ambitions to "be a famous artist when I grow up. I'll sell my pictures for $99. They will be in stores and museums." They talk about what they think freedom is. "It means I'm free to walk around my neighborhood in shorts and eat bananas when I feel like it." About how to cook a turkey they wrote: "First you take off the paper." There's even a resident third-grade critic who reviewed the Broadway musical "Starlight Express" with the following comment: "Once you understand it is about a railroad race, there isn't much more to the story.'' Mr. Bernagozzi is a wise teacher to listen once in a while instead of talking. Maybe this country should have been as wise when 11 children from the United States, Poland, Finland, West Germany, Japan, Afghanistan and Switzerland asked to meet with President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev during their meeting last year. They bore messages of peace from 230,000 children throughout the world. They were refused. A 13-year-old West German girl, Claudia Thorun, said, "We just wanted to tell them we want to be so old like Mr. Reagan and Mr. Gorbachev." I have never heard of a better reason for peace.
