Discussion of productions for tho current year will bo held. of a n»w and interest- course for seniors was out- tned today by H. B. Robertson, eacher at the local high school. 'This course has the express purpose of turning out practical and intelligent clerks for either large or small retail establishments and merchandising as a subject is essentially a practical one," Mr. Robertson said. Explains Scope "This course covers the history of retailing, the study of the retail situation in general, the organisation and Administration of typical large, modern, city department stores and the duties and functions of their various sections. The course }s being taught BO that students will'bo able to go directly into a store and know how to act and what to do. It will also indicate for what vocation a student wishes to qualify, whether it bo buyer, floorwalker or office boy." Also included in tho course are discussions on locations for stores and how to select them, the placing of departments, how to greet cus- tomers, open a sale, show merchandise, make change and sales slips 1 and also on chain store methods, mail orders and methods of meeting competition. The course promises to be not only interesting but extremely profitable and practical." Dramatics, Too A requirement of tho merchandising course la that tho student also take the new vocational dramatics, taught by Miss Ethel Robinson. The purpose of this requirement is to teach tho student not only merchandising but to teach him how to handle himself in a store. According to Miss Robinson tho purpose of tho vocational dramatics la to teach the qualities of personality to the individual. "Because a position In a store depends on the individual's contact with the public, lie should develop diction, poise and good posture. This subject is Intended for that purpose. Any student work, ig In a store should leam not to bo awkward with his hands or his body." iy OLIVK ROBERTS BARTON) I WISH all parents who read this would consider It seriously. First, will you ask yourself If you wouldn't make over your John or Mary if you had a chance? Be very honest, pleaae, honest with your deepest buried thoughts. Acknowledge that you would prefer to have a Mary without her quick temper; that John would have been a boon to your pride if only ho wouldn't cry so easily, or perhaps if ho took to manners better. Never a parent lived, I bellovo, who wasn't secretly worried about tho shortcomings of a child, almost every child. Expect Too Much It is about thla matter that I invite your analysis, ' Why do you do it? Why do we all do It? Why do wo build up In our r This New ZENITH is the Radio Everyone Is Talking About!

But wo do it, and doing it wo dls rodlt tho other qualities each child possesses, because all children toil In Ittlu and exceed in much. It makes rouble for our nerves and life moril unhappy for tho growing family, It cads to too much talk, to too-porsla ent reminders and strains the love of child for parent. I know that many shll-Jran seem ,o be impossible. This happens, to a certain extant, through hered.iaty endency and a groat iloal through txperlenco and environment. No Road to Perfection If a child could be raised accord ng to a chart from early babylioot n an atmosphere suitable to his ten denotes and surroundlngx, that coulc anticipate his weAttnesses and ovor come them, build on tho beat and llscourago his faults, then perhaps t might be possible to have the per- 'oct child. But wo work in the dark to a largo •xtent during his babyhood and oven hrough the early prenahool yearn. When it Is almost too late, wo discover that Mary has inherited im .inreasonablo temper or John a shyness and •ermlUveneaa beyond com- |)loto euro. AVell then, there they nre.

Tt only works part way mid we mutter, "Disappointment li, Iho lot of all parents." Must Accept Reality No, It should not bo so. Parents nhould look upon their children as they would upon next door neighbors. They are what they are and as Much must bo accepted and mada the most of. With this attitude of mind moth- r>r» can set to work to cultivate) tho good und discourage the bad. They will get results certainly but not complete results. They can in time, however, «ay happily to their spouspH, "I/colt at Mary today. Not perfect, but how much more considerate than Hho used to bo." Or about John. "Ho is no much braver. He ban dona Ma best and HO havo wa." Parents talk about heartbreak, but they could savo themselves a lot if thoy would stop building sky-castles and peopling them with unreal children; If they would nay, "Wo know their limitations, so now let's inulio Iho best of them." Heartbreak Is uaually refusal to accept tho truth, a "fool's paradise" shattered. 4 t » All the wealth of Mongolian women Is worn on their hair.
