Children Should Be Permitted to Take Books Home By GARRY C. MYERS, PH. D. Child Training Authority. FOR MONTHS I have been at the point of blowing up, and here I go. I hope I hurt nobody. It is over what parents have been writing me from various places in our country where free text books are provided children, telling me that their children ar e not allowed by their teachers to carry their school books home. The reason is not to preserve the books; anyway, children should and 1 these handle H E L P I N G T H E H O M E M A K E R At Damon's Store By MRS- MARY MOKTON. Menu Hint. Tomato Soup Crackers Cube Steaks Scalloped Onions Baked Potatoes Cabbage and Carrot Salad Baked Bananas and Cherries Coffee This menu is intended for a cold day. The onions are peeled, sliced into a buttered baking dish, seasoned with salt and pepper, then covered with scalded milk in which a tablespoon of butter has been dissolved. Cover with bread or cracker crumbs and bake for about three- quarters or one hour. Today's Recipes. Baked Bananas and Cherries--Cut four large bananas in halves, crosswise, or use eight small ones. Lay in a buttered shallow baking dish. Boil together for a few minutes one :up of the juice from canned cherries with two tablespoons sugar and one tablespoon flour or tapioca. Add the cherries and bring to a boil. Pour over the bananas, dot with, butter and bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 30 minutes. The bananas must not be mushy. Makes Sons' Ties. "When my husband's ties are discarded I use them for boys' writes a housewife. "First ties, I cut That Accurately Predict The Spring Fashions? BRIGHT PRINTS OR NAVIES JACKET AND ONE-PIECE STYLES Imaginative Necklines . . . Graceful Sleeves . . . Pleats, Shirring and Fagotting . . . Enchanting Flower Trims and All That is New for Spring.

I then rip the under seam of the widest end, take out padding, press, shaping a little narrower, and sew it up again. The narrow end I leave as is. I tie these two pieces as for wearing and on each end that sticks out sew a piece of narrow elastic .0 fit two-thirds around the neck Dn the other side I sew a piece of matching material and on the two ends I sew a snap. The elastic fits around the collar and snaps on the side, which is easy for a boy to do itmself. In this way a man's rensive tie becomes two ties for a ray. My five-year-old son is proud of his ties made 'just like daddy's.' " Neat Stuffing. When' stuffing a fowl, to avoid having as much dressing on the outside as on the inside, use an ordinary can filler, such as is used in filling fruit jars, and you will be surprised how easy you can stuff ;he fowl without spilling any dress- ·ng. What do you think of this idea? "We have little ones, and morning brings many necessary tasks. When quests are here we awaken them n the morning by knocking gently on their door. We take them warm wash cloths and towels. Next we supply extra pillows and shoulder showls or robes. Our guests are then ready for their breakfast trays They can eat, read the paper anc dress leisurely before joining the family. It is surprising how much time this jives the hostess to plan lunch and set her house in order Our guests find this procedure delightful." So writes one charming hostess. WHITTEMORE COUPLE WILL BE MARRIED WHITTEMORE--The approach ing marriage of Hubert O'Brien anc Miss Sylvia Thilges of Bode was announced at St. Michael's Catholii church for the first time. . .;._ Returns to Home. KENSETT--- John Arendts re turned to his home at Hayfield Minn., he came here to attend th Aarbak funeral. Mrs. Johnson also returned to her home at Lake Park Minn., having been here for sonn time with her brother, Mr. Aarbak books with paper and to them carefully. Learn Things Wrong. The reason teachers give is that children might learn things wrong if they are allowed to carry their books home with them, or that their parents might make them do some home work when none is assigned. But don't blame the teachers. They have been told this nonsense by some who have trained them to teach. The assumption seems to be that the school has all the genius and the home all the stupidity. This we parents resent. A great many parents have "brains," even though hey happen to be parents. Many arents themselves like to read their hildren's textbooks. In many lomes there are no other books. Some parents like to read these xraks with, their children. What an offer a. finer parent-child com- adeship? Besides, if the child, say, in the ifth or sixth grade, is a poor reader --and many are--his father or mo- her of average intelligence might profitably read to him from his geography, history or science book, showing him how to get at the main joint in the paragraph, and say it n a sentence of his own words. Then if there are younger children n the home from three to five years old, the older child in the second, third or fourth grade might choose ;o read from his reader to the baby jrother or sister. I can think of no jetter way to stimulate good read- .ng in the school child and to help ;he one who is a poor reader, A parent might, moreover, want to read from this easy hook to the young child or, as in a case of those who have not learned to read or speak English with ease, *o read to himself from it. Stop That Dangerous Resident of Grafton Since 1898 Succumbs GRAFTON--Frank Gottschalk 7, passed away at his home Friday after an illness of several months rle was born Sept. 18, 1858 at Wax- r elde, Germany. He came to America when three years old, and settlec it Johnson's Creek, Wis. He moved .0 Iowa in 1870 and settled at Rock Creek. In 189S he was married to Alvina Nack and then settled on a farm west of Grafton. In 1932 his ife preceded him in death. In 193' he moved to Grafton. Children lef are Mrs. Elizabeth Rasmussen o Buffalo, N. Dak., Mrs. Gertrude 3onker of Manly and Lena, Delia and Caroline, who are at home. Seven grandchildren and three sisters, Mrs Minnie Heckstein of Mitchell; Mrs Martha Gottschalk of Tracy, Minn and Mrs. Ida Wahl of Grafton, als survive. Co-operate With Home. Nevertheless, some parents wil' use these books to the child's disadvantage. Some will inflict bac learning methods on the child, or methods wholly different from thos he employs at school. Yet the aleri teacher who knows her children wil soon discover these discrepancies and ways to win the parent's operation. Why can't more of our educators, especially those who train teachers, keep in mind the home and lead them to win its co-operation rather than to ignore it? I suggest that parents who are distressed over this problem write the editor of this paper about it. No doubt he would like to conduct a forum on the subject, printing the parent's point of view, also the teacher's.
