We love to look upon their ruddy, happy faces. We recall that gentleman of the old school who never failed to lift his hat to a passing school boy because of *hat the lad might become in the course of the years. Never in the history of the world were educational opportunities so greatly utilized. Parents will scrimp on foods and clothing in order that their children may have a good schooling. Communities pour out their funds liberally for buildings and equipment-R is the one great, successful, socialistic venture from which the American people will never retreat, in other lands, too, especially among the depressed and backward nations of the earth, the thirst for education is hardly less intense. That is .why Porto Rico and the Philippines are appealing so loudly for the Yankee school-marm. That is why our missionaries - in Japan and-China are forced : tc$rear'school buildings Tclose by the churches -which they establish. Moreover the range of education is constantly being eslended and fte quality of the instruction improved. The man of 50 who goes into, a well-equipped modern schoolhouse today is amazed at what he sees; and bears. Long- 'ago education ceased to be a matter of the three R's "reading, -'riting and 'rithmetic." Today it means 'not only the former branche? of study, but the kindergarten, manual, training, the cooking and:. the sewing schools. Then, too, th; way in whish the truth is imparted has changed. The teacher does not drive in a few facts by sheer force plus the occasional use of the ferule, but tries to lead the-awakening mind Into fair *and profitable fields of knowledge, and to keep the pupil, interested, alert, and aequisite on every side of its nature. All of this modem development ed with a Cline sang. tap dance < and Loyd No definite date ' was »et Jor the November meeting.

Dramatic Qub Play Gist Is Selected Here The cast for "Mignonette," three-act drama which Is to be the initail public presentation of the Ames High School Dramatic club for the year, was selected this week by Mrs. Ferne Gaunt, director of dramatics, following a series of tryouts. Jane Clement will play the leading dual roles of Mignonette and Rose Deardon, her great niece, mhile the leading male roles have been assigned to Jack Chase, Paul Morgan, and Robert Bliss. Others in the cast are Helen Cunningham, George Arnold, William Bliss, Eugene Armstrong, Walter Madlsoa, Helen Thels 1 , Gay Starrack, Betty Ames, Gertrude Mann, Marian Davis, Opal Buttplpb, Betty Swanson, Ruth Mitchell, Margaret Maitland, Rose Marje Allen, Mary Bush, Ben Blanchard, Stanley Clobridg*, and Claire French. The play will be coached by Mrs; Gaunt. Mr. and Mrs. J. Do nn( si] an had M heir guests recently Mrs. L. M. Tlst and daughter, Mrs. L. M. lodges. P.ernAdlne Hortjres and ttrs. Anns Blair of Cumberland gives greater dignity and importance to the educational movement. And it behooves the average man, whether he has children or not to keep In touch vith it. Dont view tie school system entirely from without Acquaint yourself with the forces and'per- sonalities concerned in it; ,Gest the points of view of ^teachers and of superintendents. Make them, feel your sympathetic interest, your appreciation of the city, or of the .tremendous influence, for good or evil which they control. And we ought not to ejpect too much Of tie schools. They : can do a great deal, but cannot do everything, They cannot in a few short years, produce a ?5,000 man out of a 50-cent boy. They have a great deal of material to work upon that Is at the start 'crude and unresponsive. Give them time to make a gentleman, a scholar and a patriot out of your boy. And remember that the school or college is not the only agency responsible for his development. The church anc the home have tLeir function anc if there be not cooperation between them and the scho 1, if instead, the thill work at cross purposes, the result is likely to be disastrous to the growing boy or girl. Believe also in the higher education, not simply the higher education in its technical sense, but in that higher education -which frees and enlarges the mind'and brings into joyous activity the spiritual powers. A child is not educated when he is stuffed;with facts. Neither is he fully educated when he is taught to observe and to think with scientific accuracy. He must also have his soul opened to the meaning of life, his ears unstopped that he may hear the myriad voices thru which the universe speaks and proclaims the glory and goodness of the invisible God. There are wjse limitations that prevent the public school from doing everything possible along this line. And yet I know public school teachers, . who without stepping across the bounds of propriety, do bring their pupils into touch With the highest things Certainly In tho choice of a private school or college ono may have this end in viftw. And day by day in himself And In others closest to him one may cultivate this sense of .tho eternal.

HAVE HUSKING VACATION STOHY CITY— StuJpnts of th« Story rity schools will holr Ktndiffl Monday folowlng H them. The last year to give special help "to parents who wished to direct their children's reading. A small book- ease was set .aside and provided with lock.and key. As soon as library patrons discovered that clean copies of the most. suitable children's books could always be found there the'collection became popular, and the Faculty Women's club set aside $50 TO provide books for it. _ One of the treasures just purchased with that money is "My Book of History/' a four-volume set of universal history by Olive Beaupre Miller, editor of "My Book- house." With its splendid illustrations and carefully written text this is one of the best histories on the,market for children. Because of its length, ond seriousness it is not so suitable for undirected reading, but parents "will enjoy using it witb.7tb.eir children. For those .who wish to study England-there are four books. "An Island Story" and "English Literature" by Henrietta Marshall are companion volumes, beautifully illustrated. "The History of Everyday Things in England" by Quen- nell brings together a great deal of material with many pictures showing the life and customs of the English from 1066 to 1800. "Through Merry England," by Stevens, emphasizes the geography of the country. No better reading course than these four books could be found for older boys and girls. Younger children will be delighted- with the group of 10 picture books -translated from the German, Swedish and Danish, with the original illustrations. For some years European picture books have been more attractive than ours, and our children are fortunate to have the best of them in the excellent translations now available. Thre« other books in the group arc remarkable for their illustrations. "Pinocchio." the large edition printed In Italy with the colored pictures of Attilo Mussino is the best and most expensive edition on the market Jacynth Parsons, a young English girl, has done the pictures for "Songs of Innocence" by Blake. A foreword by W. B. Yeats explains how this young girl's talent was discovered and tells how she came to do these most satisfactory illustrations. "One "Day with Manu," written and illustrated by Armstrong Sperry, tells of the South Sea Island boy. The block prints which accompany the story ore worth a trip to the library. It Is most fortunate that In our struggle to make f-nds meet there still organizations which are able and willing to contribute bftanty to HIP IIVPS of chlldron who, above all, should not b*> mnd«\ to for a v,v,i(3 ontn strophe in 125 INITIATED BY AMES HIGH GIRL RESERVES FRI.
