Eight Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune NEWS and VIEWS By Mary D'Andrea For grade schoolers (and their teachers), there is absolutely nothing like the last day of school. It's that great day when the schools release the tide of America's future and the 'teachers fondly dump the kids back in their parents' laps for three whole months. ! What a day for the kids! They can't wait to get out and rush to the parks, or pools or wherever else, kids go when the last bell rings. ; THEIR EXUBERANCE is astounding ,'and amazes the teachers, considering that 'toward, the end of the.term, these sleepy-looking-dream-; •' ers answered teacher's questions : with the most completely blank expressions imaginable.. Now suddenly at the sound of', the final bell; they explode into vibrant life and:bolt for the door,' ; And I imagine many: a teacher has had a. sudden pang and the frustrating thought, "They didn't learn a thing this year"... ." But actually they retain, something. They store the knowledge far back in their minds, lock the doorand forget it until September. ; . - THE ONLY IMPORTANT THING how .is freedom. That old saying, "no more tea.chers, .no more books, .no more teacher's dirty "looks,", still goes today. So the kids are free. 'And Mom, and Dad,, you'll have to face it, They're all yours again ... for three months. , . \ . '•. . ' Just think, no' more late-evening struggles with fractions and verbs, . . .,. no more early- 1 morning fights over.the.bathroom and breakfast ... no more packing lunches and satchels . no more bickering .about who's going to wear what and why boots are important in bad weather ... no more last minute rushes ( for buses and bicycles ... , .-'!„• JUST PEACE AND QUIET . -•. ,. until'.around / the middle of July. Then you'll discover: ' , Kids on vacation dirty more clothes than kids in school which means more washing and ironing and who feels like ironing on a hot day - in; July.(or any other day) ... . : . Kids on vacation eat one meal a day, beginning with the time they get up to (he time they go to bed which means a constantly messed up kitchen because kids like to help themselves . . . Kids on vacation have contests among them- selves to see,who can get the dirtiest the quickest which means at least two baths a day and that doesn't do a thing for the water bill . . . KIDS ON VACATION are noisy from dawn to • after dark because, naturally^ they want to be outside all the time which means that crabby neighbor will be calling every.day to tell you to get Tommy out of her flower garden and she doesn't care :if his baseball IS under her prize rose bush ... Kids on vacation suffer, ''constantly from nicked knees and scraped shins ("But, Mom, I don't know how it happened") which .means first aid and that, of., course, means a battle ' royal because iodine burns ("Blow on it! Blow on it! It burns! Oh. I'm dyih':..") and soon you'll begin to think the whole .summer will be spent "blowing . . ." Kids on vacation are always hungry and, in addition to a constant parade through the kitchen, there-.-are two or three trips to the hot dog and cflst'ard stand which means upset stomachs and that calls for another battle royal because "I don't like that old medicine and I WON'T take it... KIDS ON VACATION run in packs which means'they'11 probably think your yard is the best place to play and that means, kids .in your kitchen ("Can. I have a drink of water") . , . kids in your bathroom ("But I couldn't make it home")..', ..kids in your living room.(I wanna • watch-television") . . . lads in your basement ("We're lookin' for spiders to scare the girls with") . , . and you'd better check under the beds, too. But kids on vacation really do something for one segment of the population . . . have you noticed the happy and relaxed look teachers have when' you happen to meet them on the street? .'.-'•'•' . Qh well, Mother, there- are only 88 days left until the first day of school. SIGN OF THE TIMES - Bachelors talking about how many books of trading stamps they've saved:. .. ("it'll only take me five years to save enough for that motor bpat . . .") Dreamer! ' ' DEFINITION OF A MOBERN MdTHEB-One who can hold safety pins and a cigarette in her mouth at the same time ...
