WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15, 1998 (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS OSCEOLA NEWS B, &lfy. Wl. Starr ********* Pupils Set Pace for Teackers, Mrs. Clarence Grig shy Finds STARR GAZING PAGE FIVE! * Old fashioned thlng» like cloak- roomi, pot-bellied stoves, drinking dippers, school bells, lunch baskets nnd recess are spoken of almost In a whisper In the presence of children of this television age. Those old school terms that bring back memories are as strange to children of this day as Einstein's mathematical deductions and his equation for nuclear reaction are to me. But, time marches on and children get smarter and smarter as each new generation comes along. "School teachers," according to Mrs. Clarence Grlgsby, "are comelled to keep abreast of the times." Her second grade students aren't asked "How much is four take-away two?" That hasn't got enough zip to it. She plays a game with them by "issing out bingo cards and corn. • >e game is called quizmo —i for 'jfldemic reasons. She stands before the children and gives out a problem and they place a piece of corn on the correct answer. "Addition and subtraction can be taught in half the time," she informed me. Remember.the old Friday after• . noon spelling bees? Here's a modern version Mrs. Grlgsby uses: An imaginary baseball diamond is visualized by the children. Two sides are chosen just like in the good old days but instead of the reds and the blues, It sounds more exciting to give each side the name of a baseball teajn. It's hard to make a child stand in a straight line so she uses the baseball game with their basemen shortstops, left and' right fielders and batters. If he spells his word correctly, he goes to first base, if he missed. It's an out and if there are three outs, trie other side comes in for their spelling — and that is what is meant when they say learning can be fun. * « MRS. GRIGSBY, who began her school teaching career in Osceola in 1922, has moved along with this changing world. "Children," she said, "are like their elders, they don't like monotony. To do the same thing and in the same way, day in and day out, is enough to keep a child from being happy in school. Keeping the child interested in their daily routine cuts down on punishment. I have found ,ln my 31 years of teaching small children, that the uninterested child is the one who gets into the most trouble. "The old method of punishing a child by whipping him, making him ;* stand in a corner or keeping him in after school doesn't solve problem," Mrs. Grigsby said. "I lind that to let them leave while their class Is in progress impresses them more than fashion way of discipline. Only one trip out of the room is necessary «mally to let them know that It they want to be a part of the class, where all their little friends are, The Kore»n vet«an'« banquet was • huge iucceH Friday night, the food was excellent (and hot). Aubrey Guy did himself proud in his Informal manner of talking before a crowd, and most of all the object behind the celebration should be madfwlnto in annual affair, lest we forget. There were certainly a lot of serious looking people sitting at the tables. . . Young wives and parents of boys "over there" bore the expressions of serlotB thinking. One couple In particular was Mr. and Mrs. George Parrish, who lost their only son, still In his 'teens, in the early days of this war. Aubrey tried and tried Jiard to point out the humorous side of the situation, bui to those who have suffered, there can be no humorous side. He who receives a benefit with gratitude and humility repays the first installment of his debt. Citizen Genet landed in Charleston, S. C., on April 9, 1793, as minister to the U. S. for one of the revolutionary governments of Prance. He became a citizen here when he fell out of favor with a new government at home. At Albany, in 1825, he published the first correct statement of the theory ol the airplane. Only within the last century tomatoes were proven not to be poisonous. Native to South America, they now rank third among U. S. vegetable crops. They belong to the Solanaceae family, as does the tobacco and potato—and what's any better than eating one from the vine, with a cold biscuit? how: 114 cups sifted all purpose Hour, it teaspoon baking powder, J4 teaspoon soda, i teaspoon salt, I'A teaspoon ginger % teaspoon cinnamon, v, cup cooking oil, (if oleo is used, omit the salt) V4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed, 1 egg, well beaten, >.(, cup dark molasses, >,i cup boiling water.

Don't worry if the batter looks thin, It's s'posed to. On the Social Side... Back in April, 1788, "Body-snatching," riots took place in New York City. No doctor was safe for three days and nights because a medical student's prank called attention to the fact that cadavers for dissection were being stolen from graves The riots brought forth legislation that licensed ^SKiijii nnd make other regulations that are the foundation ol organized medicine.
