The National Council on Schoolhouse Con- member of the National Council obstruction is interested in emphasizing two things: one, how to provide Schoolhouse construction, attended the annual National Council fali meeting in Milwaukee where the "Thirteen Principles of Economy in School Plant Design and Construction" was discussed. The conference pointed out the "true economy of schoolhouse construction" based on the 13 points set forth in the National Council publication. Here is a report on the conference with a summary of each of the 13 points prepared by Dr. Wil- a safe, healthful, and attractive school building which is adequate in terms or the community's educational needs; and, two, how to construct this building at the most reasonable cost.

Psychiatrist and Patient Are Newest Joke. Team NEW YORK (UP)—It'may be a true symbol of our shaky - tense age,' a tune when every man seems bent on mooning around in exploration of the outer spaces of his own mind, that a new comedy team has established itself in the everyday world of the common joke. The team consists of the psychiatrist and his patient, plus the standard props of psychiatrist's couch and notebook. The combo sometimes varies, 1 — patient and patient; or doctor and doctor — but the basic idea is the same. Simple, If Not Pure opens the conversation: "Hello. You're fine; hovv'm I?" Slopped Into Goldwynism The thing has, logically enough, slopped over into the field of the simple Goldwynism. Sam Goldwyn is alleged to have said: "Anybody who would go to a psychiatrist ought to have his head examined." ••• AN OLD PHOTOGRAPH ol the Center school in' Deer Creek township may bring back memories io some of Cass county's senior citizens.
