ALONG ABOUT THE SECOND week in November comes National Education week when parents go to school to confer with the teachers, and everybody thinks a bit more about how important schools are. It suddenly dawned on me that this year I will have my last chance at a parent-teacher conference since our youngest, Jeanie is in her last year of high school. * * * I DON'T EXACTLY KNOW where all those years went. It seems Just a couple of years ago we bought BUI his resting rug and fat crayons and sent him off to Mrs. Laird's kindergarten. But it was eighteen years ago and now we have not only long since sent his two sisters to kindergarten, they've all become adults with plans for their own little kindergartners, (I strongly suspect our grandson, Billy will be ready for school next year, even though he won't be old enough). *** AFTER THINKING ABOUT it for a while, I came to the conclusion that if this is to be my last year for parent-teacher conferences, it will also be the last year 1 can logically drag out my Ten Commandments for Teachers. I promise that this will be its swan song: *** 1. - THOU SHALT SEEK OUT THE worthwile qualities in each of thy pupils. Though there be 30 of them, all squirmy wiggly, coming down with colds or forming spitballs, thou shall remember that genius often lurks under unlikely surfaces. It may be thy privilege to awaken a future Edison, a Lady Bird Johnson, or an astronaut. Or thou may at least have the satisfaction, years hence, of saying none of thy pupils landed in Jail for more than ten year terms. + * * 2. - THOU SHALT KEEP A HAPPY FACE. Though thy new shoes be killing thee, though thy rent is due and thy purse is empty, thou shalt not take it out on the kids. Thou shalt stand UD before the little monsters, and smile I * * * 3. - THOU SHALT HAVE "THY ears open to receive the confidences of thy pupils and thy mouth closed lest those fascinating tidbits revealed in Show and Tell time slip out. Though the tale of how Mamma is mad at Daddy, what Papa is going to tell his boss when he gets the chance or how Mamma thinks she might be expecting would make devastating conversation at thy next tea party, thou shalt forget thou ever heard them. \ * * * 4. ~ THOU SHALT DEVELOP A DISCERNING eye worthy of a physician. Thou must be able to spot rashes on tummies and dispatch students to the school nurse with speed enough to keep the rest of the class from an epidemic of measles. Thou must inspect for dirty ears, varied vermin of the scalp, extreme fatigue caused by watching the late TV show, impetigo and hoof and mouth disease. Thou must distribute band-aids for cut fingers, sympathy for bruised shins and referee service for fights. • O 1 5. — THOU SHALT LEARN THE fine art of double-talk for parent conferences. Though it be true that a kid is plain stupid it is not seeming to tell his mother this. Thou can always fall back on such terms as lack of reading- readiness, nonconformity to his peer group (bites the other kids), resentment of authority (bites the teacher), or failure to plan his time schedule efficiently (frequently fails to make it to the bathroom). * * * 6. - THOU SHALT TAKE A FIRM STAND on the matter of homework. Verily, homework is fraught with tribulations. Though thy assignments be meager, there shall always be the complaint from the pupils, "Our teacher is tough — too much homework". Though they assignments be mountainous, thy supervisor shall say, "Assign more homework". And thou hast homework, also — correcting all those papers from thv pupils' homework. * * * * 7. - THOU SHALT GIVE THOUGHT TO thy raiment. Thou shalt dress prettily enough to appeal to thy students' sense of the lovely. Thou shalt dress plain enough so that the fathers of thy pupils do not consider thee whistle-bait and brine down the wrath of thy pupils' mothers upon thee. Thou shalt dress demurely enough so the most conservative member of the school board shall consider thy contract renewable next lime * * * J ' 8. - THOU SHALT KEEP ONE STEP ahead of thy punils Truly, in this day of television, the public library, and the encouraging of the inquiring mind, this is a problem. Thou must use up thy riches, stored during the winter to attend school in the summer. Thou must get thy degree. * * * 9. - THOU MUST LEARN TO SUBORDINATE thy taste for luxuries to the size of thy paycheck. Verily, I say unto you such riches as a decent winter coat, fine carriages, braces on thy own offsprings' molars and steak every third Wednesday apnear as a molehill to a mountain compared to the privilege of training young minds. If the way seems rough consider that there are truly harder ways of making a living. But wouldst thou really like selling refrigerators to the Eskimoes in Alaska? * * * 10. -THOU MUST REALIZE THAT THOUGH thy problems be legion, the parents of thy students have perplexities of their own. The path they tread is not so different from thy own. Their paths are shadowed also by bank overdrafts, lengthening hours of labor, inability to see real signs of progress and criticism of boss or customer. But at the end of the way beams the same bright goal *•- more teachers and 1 parents, doctors and housewives, plumbers and scientists, statesmen and stenographers all living together decently in the best world we can make ill DURING THE WEEK OF OCT. 30 through November 5, people nav ng birthdays include Carolyn Bickert, Lee Schenck Randy Nielsen, Tom Straub, Charles Harmon, Mrs. F.
