A child of an original turn of mind often creates another child to enjoy talking to or about, says Nancy Lysen. Iowa State university extension associate in human de- wlopment and family relationship*. Ewn a child who plays with other children much of the time may do this when he is alone. Sometimes, however, n child is driven by loneliness to invent imaginary companions. In such cases, parents may want to make an extra effort to see that he has real companions more often, if possible. Mrs. Lysen believes that the best approach is for parents to assume a matter-of-fact attitude towards their child's Imaginary playmate, recognizing that many children go through this phase during the pre-school years. In others words, do notscold or punish him for it, but do not "lead him on" or encourage him to talk about his imaginary friend because you think it's "cute." If an imaginary playmate becomes a scapgoat for your child's wrongdoings, take a good look at the way you have been handling your child's mistakes. Have you let him "get away" with saying the playmate did it?" This way of escaping the consequences of his actions could set up a harmful pattern. However, your child's effort to shift blame is a sign that he is Ix'ginning to separate good and bad. He needs your help in developing a conscience and should not be made to feel too guilty about his "badness." JUST A REMINDER Please turn in your Butter-nut coffee strips and Instant coffee jar labels at once. Tills is a Christmas project sponsored by the American legion Auxiliary, and makes possible the purchase of many sturdy toys for children in our state institutions and orphanages. Call Mrs. Howard R. Johnson, Child Welfare Chairman, at Blue 89. This Fifth Grade — Mrs. Downlng's This past week has been a busy one. We have started to work on Christmas gifts in our spare time.

Patty Alhouse, Marjorie Henry and Janice Stoneman missed one word each. Besides our regular language work we have been writing letters. We received a letter from the fifth of the Morse Elementary school of Morse, Louisiana asking us to be their pen pals and to tell something about our state. Nearly everyone in our grade has a letter ready to be sent to. them. We are still discussing the Solar system in Science. Chris brought another map of the moon for us to see. We had only one perfect paper of our progress test in arithmetic. Most of us received good grades. Our mistakes were mostly simple little mistakes in computation. It showed us that we should proofread more carefully. We have been reading from supplementary books in reading class. We have been doing more oral reading from these books, trying to improve our speech and put more expression into our reading. Our club president, John Orr, appointed committees to plan our Christmas activities. Our decorating committee plans to decorate our room next week. We exchange- ed names for our Christmas gifts last Wednesday. —•— Mrs. Everett's We just have to brag this week. We had 20 perfect spelling papers on our Friday test. Everyone agrees that having dictation more often la helping us learn our words. We completed chapter seven in social studies. We had our test on Thursday. There were 44 points in the test. Linda Himmel had the best score. She had 42 points correct on the test. Our room is taking on a holiday atmosphere. We have made Japanese Latern Santa Clauses and have them strung on wires in our room. We are making window silhouettes with colored transparent paper backings. We also drew names for a gift exchange.

Honestly, Paul, they are n't that hard. They're just simple tang twasters!! Jean Ann, I still think your purse is cute, even though Paul thinks it's something else! P. S. How's the bump on • your head? Some people will do anything to get out of school, won't they? Sharon, me thinks you'd better come back soon!! Say Barb, we know you're hung-* ry after basketball practice, but don't you think eating ankle wraps is going just a little too far!! All of Betty Crocker's Crumbs (Senior girls) took a homemaking test, this past week. Now tell me girls, how do you boil water? No, no, not the tea kettle-use the electric fry pan!! We are happy to report that most of the shorthand girls ( and Larry ) are "whizzing" along about 40 w. p. m. Why was everyone in biology so anxious to bring twigs to school for class the other day? I do hope Ron B. gets hpid of a calendar and finds out what month it is. Then he'll understand why we girls wear sweaters in the middle of winter! Does this answer your question, Ron?
