Recently I was an auditor "of the annual two-day parents' forum put on by Che Health and Parent Education association of Cleveland. The two main speakers were Dr. Paul Furfy of the Catholic university of America, and Prof. Elbert Fretwell of Teachers college, Columbia university. At one session there was a panel discussion by a dozen representative high school youths, with Professor Fretwell leading them. And, how well they did talk! Let me relay one dialogue, in part, between Professor Fretwell and Adele Rose, a student from Glenville high school, Cleveland. Dr. Fretwell: "What do you believe are the good effects o£ student government through student council organizations?" Promotes Self Reliance. Miss Rose: '"Student government promotes a feeling of independence and self-reliance, and gives students a sense of responsibility." Dr. Fretwell: 'What type of adviser is most successful in school projects?" Miss Rose: "The adviser who takes no part in the actual planning of programs until they are submitted to him for approval, encourages student initiative. He should try to let the group carry out all projects unless they are impossibly rash, and should transmit faculty opinions to his club." Dr. Fretwell: "What sort of students fit into the work of student government?" Need Dependability. Miss Rose: "Only students who have not been completely 'babied' at home; students who have had some share of responsibility and can be trusted to carry a project out. The chief character factor needed in student government is dependability, and this is something that must, to some degree, be fostered in the home before it can be tested at school." From Brooklyn, N. Y., came the following letter: "Dear Dr. Myers: Some time ago I read your column On teachers. Now I would like to tell you about a teacher in the school which I attend. Her name is Mrs. Fallen, and she is a health education teacher in Manual Training high school. Of all the teachers I have had in my nine years of schooling, she's the 'tops.' She combines good teaching and sincerity with understanding. I do not know of any pupils who dislike her except those who never get along with anyone. She is as patient as a kitten. I certainly would like to meet any teacher who can t»p Mrs. Fallon. ·'P. S.: Please do not use my name, but I would like you to print the name of the school and the teacher. Just sign my name '15.' " TWENTIETH CEiVTUKV CMJB AT MEEING Twentieth Century club met Monday afternoon at the of Mrs. W. G. C. Bagley, 938 North Federal avenue.

No, no -- he has just heard about the new Spring Suits and Topcoats at Abel Son, Inc. They're the kind of clothes any man dreams about! n* Up! ^A iJ-J,, -^Uj -j^ HICKEY FREEMAN'S TDQ « CHARGE IT! Pay $5 down . . . split the balance over 10 weeks . . . and that's all! 3. A Homburg hot, · with definitely tapered crown, is a boon to the chubby face. OBEISANCE TO OBESITY Obtrusive Waistlines Require Subtle Selection of Apparel We refuse to accept the dogmatic conclusion that the corpulent gentleman is condemned forever to clothes possessing no more character than a potato sack. A moderate amount of surplus waistline need not close the door to sartorial smartness, although it demands greater care in the selection of a wardrobe. For those whose resistance to culinary delights is constantly at low ebb, we have a sympathetic understanding, and a word of cheer and consolation. If you won't heed the doctor's weight-reducing diet, and you won't become a devotee of spartan exercises, you may, at any rate, with no discouraging expenditure of effort or self denial, caparison yourself in clothes that minimize your girth and emphasize your height. Prior to the time that science commenced to apply the stream-line design to everything in sight, gentlemen's tailors used this principle in making clothes for men with stoutish tendencies. 1. The long rolling peak lapel or, for that matter, the notch lapel, does the trick in a single-breasted model jacket. 2. Eliminating the cuffs on trousers is distinctly helpful in giving the desired feeling of length and slimness. 4. Even the collar and tie, properly selected, will contribute to the desired effect. This moderately pointed collar and a narrower tie with a slim knot are recommended. 5. While a double- breasted topcoat is not necessarily a "don't," as you will note from the illustration, this single-breasted coat, fly front, with lapels that roll a bit longer, is first choice. 6. Brogues of the heavy type are not advisable. In their place, we recommend the typical English last shoe of the type illustrated, which carries out the illusion of slimness. IMPORTANT NOTE: In case you have any doubts about what to wear and when to wear it, we should be happy to send you a "Chart of Correct Dress--Approved by Esquire." Just send us a stamped, self-addressed envelope. ESQUIRE will answer all questions on men's fashions. Write MEN'S FASHION DEPARTMENT, THE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, and enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope for reply. COPYRIGHT 1936, ESQUIRE, INC.
