MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUAKY 24 Ml 1937 SEVEN IETY Let's Be Gay, Boys; Don't Be the One in Conventional Black NEW YOHK, (/Pj--Shades of bewilderment settled darkly over New York's average well-dressed men Wednesday. In a M'istful way, they wondered if it was not just a dream that came haunting around as an aftermath of lobster and crepes suzettes at midnight. But it was only the prediction o£ delegates to the men's style show of the New York custom cutters' club of what the wel- tiressed man will wear-" . . . Dinner jackets in robin's egg blue . . . or pastel shades of plum, maroon, green, fawn, capri blue . . . With four pleated cummerbunds in harmonizing colors, around the midriff, instead of vests . . . military-cut blue evening capes, a la Vienna, with flaming scarlet lining . . . and tyrolean bonnets w i t h ' a 4-inch shaving brush on the side, clipped from the chin of a bearded mountain g o a t - . . . " In brief, it is ordained, the male of the species is going gay. "We have simply slopped making black tuxedos," announced Frank C. Nagel, official spokesman for the stylists.

Child Psychologist. Parents who care visit their child's school when welcome. Unfortunately some teachers do not welcome the visit, some principals do not, and some whole school systems permit visiting by parents only on certain days or by special dispensation. What a curious philosophy of education, when any school authority would discourage visiting school by parents! Whereas the child, of the elementary grades usually is eager and proud to have his parents sit as visitors in his class room, the child of the junior and senior high school prefers to have the parents stay away. I remember the shock which Mrs. Myers and I experienced when our eldest child, on entering the seventh grade, junior high, informed us deliberately that he hoped we would not come to visit in bis classes. Not Being: Done. He explained that it just wasn't being done except by a few parents whose children were not getting on well at school, or by parents' who came to quarrel with the principal or teacher, or seek some special favors for the chilfl. Regretfully we acceded, of course, to his request. As each of the next two children entered junior high we were ready for the announcement about school visiting. What might be done to break down the objection by adolescent students to school visiting? I have asked this question of groups of parents and groups of teachers in about half the states. The nearest approach to a solution of the problem is the parents' visiting day, or visiting night with school in session, the students then volunteering to attend. . Only the Teacher. More often only the teachers are present, each in his own classroom. To this room the parents come to learn about the work done by their children. But it appears that parents whose children excel at school are most likely to show up on parents' night while .those whose children lag tend to stay away, dreading to have their children discussed in the presence of a neighbor. In case your child, particularly in the lower grades, reports something at home which enrages you try to utter no opinion at the time. Let the child go on so as he does not speak abusively 01 the teacher. Wait a few days unti you cool off. In the meantime pray for poise and self-control. And when, finally, you do go to see the teacher, master your emotions anc try "to talk the matter over" reasonably. Hemember that you. heard only one side of the matter and by a child who was limilec and biased in his judgment and probably had a magnifying imagination. hopped onion, four cloves.
