Teachers Get Mighty Tired Of Public By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - Remarks that schoolteachers get tired of hearing: "In addition to your teaching duties, Miss Elmo, we expect you to act as chaperon at school dances, put on three plays a year and serve as career counselor. We sure would appreciate it, too, if you could help take tickets at the football games this fall." "Well, yes, you have the experience all right, hut speaking frankly, we'd hoped to get a younger teacher with a more advanced degree. After all, the job pays $3,650 a year." "We realize you have to make both ends meet, Mr, Johnson, but I'm afraid we can't countenance moonlighting. It just doesn't look right for a high school civics teacher to hold a job on the side as a night watchman." "I think you'll find us a pretty liberal school board, Miss Elmo. We haven't burned a library book in three — no, I think it's four years." "My teacher used to hit my palm with a ruler if I couldn't spell a word. You won't do that to my little Oswald, will you?" "This is by no means a hidebound community, Miss Elmo, but I think you'd make a bigger hit with the parents if you—uh— wore a little less makeup and— uh—didn't use a cigarette holder in public." "Yes, Mr. Johnson looks harmless enough now, but my cousin knew him in college and says he was always circulating petitions for something or other—I forget what." "Ain't you the new schoolmarm, ma'am? Whatcha got on for tonight? I'm free as a bird." "Johnson, what's this nonsense you've been giving my wife about my boy being socially shy? I've told that kid a dozen times I'd areak every bone in his head if he didn't speak up in class when it was his turn." "I admit we're paying you less than the town dog catcher, Mr. Johnson — but he's the mayor's, brother-in-law, and besides, he has to work all summer." "My child never acts that way at home. If he didn't learn it here at school, where did he learn it?" "We're proud to have you, Miss Elmo, but I guess nobody' will ever take the place of Miss Greene in our hearts. She served in our school system for 45 years —until she retired this summer and entered an old ladies' home with the money she'd saved."

When it held, East was ready to perform a neat trick. He led his singleton diamond. His plan was to take his king of trumps at the first opportunity and put his partner in with the king of clubs whereupon a diamond ruff would send South to the showers. Unfortunately for East's well laid plan, Dick Walsh of Los Angeles who sat South, saw what East was up to and took steps to counteract his nasty plot. Dick had to keep West out of the lead and he worked things out nicely. He won the diamond in dummy and took the heart finesse. Then he cashed his ace of hearts, returned to dummy with the ace of trumps and led the jack of hearts. East played the king whereupon Dick discarded his remaining club. This play of discarding a loser x on a loser left East in the lead with no means to get to his partner's hand. East led another club. Dick ruffed, gave East his king of trumps and racked up the rubber.
