Fayette School News Kindergarten— We have some soft and fluffy bunnies up around our room. We used chalk to make them. Everyone has had at least one turn now at the easels. We know that we should clean up after we finish painting and each dny we are doing better. We've been having quite a few absences with colds. Mrs. Clark helped us the day that Mrs. McCormack was absent with laryngitis and a cold. We have been talking about the Signs of Spring: buds on trees, robins in our yard, grass that is getting green, boys and girls on bicycles and roller skates, and farmers beginning to work in the fields. We are looking forward to lots more warm weather. Greg Capell and Barbara Ycar- ous celebrated their sixth birthday on April 2. Packety House" under the direction of the Upper Iowa Junior Dramatics Class. In science we are doing a unit about birds. So far we have talked about the robin and blue jay. We have found that they are both friendly birds and like to be around people. The blue jay is our most heautiful bird, but he has a bad habit which we do not like. He steals eggs and young birds from other birds nests. Jean Kunkle's reading group is ready to start a new reader. The name of the book is "Finding New Neighbors". They are sure this book will be very interesting. painted turquoise. John has arranged a spring scene on one, with flying birds above a church. Some birds are perched in a white tree. We are enjoying working in our worklxioks about cafes and cafeterias. It is interesting to follow the adventures of Sarah and Jerry as they learn how to do their work and spend their leisure. John has nearly finished the txxik, "Squanto and The Pilgrims". Donna is still absent, but expects to be back in school soon. In our Health unit, we are learning how to care for our nose, ears, and eyes. We learn through stories and through discussion. First Grade — Mrs. Mayer Mrs. Marcia SchmiU. a student teacher from U.

Friday we invited the Kindergarten in to our reading class. We wanted them to see what they will be doing next year when they are first graders. We read them a story about Sally's visit to the zoo. In Science class this week we performed 2 experiments which proved that air has pressure which can be used for power. We also enjoyed another experiment which Seventh Grade Fourth Grade — Writing conversation has been our work in language class. Many people have received replies to their business letters which were written to obtain information about the different states. In reading Jim's group dramatized a story to which the students had to think up their own ending. They did a fine job. Those students contributing toys and tools to our unit about energy in science were Jack Frey who brought a hard drill. Dean Tague who brought a hammer, and Becky McGee who brought a top. Ways to overcome friction and how friction can help us was demonstrated. Minneapolis. Minnesota and its products have been our discussion :n Social Studies. Delvin Van Bogart and Larry Jamieson made a "Key Board." All the locker keys are kept on it for better organization.

It was very interesting to look at our weather chart for last month and see how many days it snowed. We were all disappointed that March didn't go out like a lamb. April 5 was a big day for three of our second graders. Steve Curtis, Wanda Hulbert, and Tanya McBride were in the play "Rackety Mrs. Swartz Our Christmas mobile has been changed to a spring mobile. We took down the bells and red and green ornaments and replaced them with birds. There is a robin, cardinal, chica- dee, red-headed woodpecker, meadowlark, blue jay, phoebe, Baltimore oriole and goldfinch. The bulletin boards have been Where Are the Books? ( No. 23 In a Series ) Off one of the well known New England costal resorts lies a fairly large island which has a good sized summer colony. This colony has been in existence for more than 75 years. Many of the descendants of the founders still spend their summars there. The island Is described as the oldest summer settlement in the region. The Maine Guide says it "is like a small city during the summer months; in the winter it is inhabited only by caretakers." The Island was visited by an English explorer as early as 1605. But even such a place has community interests that must be served. To do this there is a corporation with a board of overseers. There is also a town office. The point of all this was n letter in the region newspaper from a man who threatened legal action against the overseers. It seems that he was unable to see the island records. He complained that as far as he know, "We are the only Town or Village in Maine which is run by absent treatments from Boston." It is a prime rule in American government that public records with certain exceptions are open to the public. In this respect thy public record is closely akin to the public notice. Both are intended to keep the public informed about public business. And it is part of the bona fide newspaper's function to publish such notices so that "The public may know," as it has a right. —•— On and After This Date ( No. 24 (n a Series ) A lot of human nature underlies many kinds of public notices. Sometimes there is a happy event which calls for an announcement. Then again, there may be an undertone of trouble or human conflict buried in the notice, A fairly common notice of the latter sort is where a person gives notice limiting the debts for which he will accept responsibility. One form reads: "On and after this date I will not be responsible for any debts other than those contracted by myself." Or a specific person for whose bill the signer denies future responsibility after the date given, may be named in the notice. Most often such notices are used where husband and wife have difficulty and the former wishes to prevent the latter from running up further bills on him. Sometimes, however, a minor child may be involved or some other legally incompetent person. In any case, this type of notice has a dual purpose, It puts the person who places the notice on record as to his stand in the matter, and it warns creditors that they will extend further credit at their own risk to all other persons indicated. Since it would be difficult to warn all creditors personally, the notice in the newspaper of general circulation is used to give such notices wide circulation. This is provided for by law, although there is some disagreement on whether the notice is absolutely binding. Boaters mutt pay for State park space used Boaters who use state park boat docks regularly are required to pay for the space used, the State Conservation commission reminded today. Renters of the commission docks are charged $2 per week, $5 per month or $20 per season. There is no charge for the use of launching ramps or automobile parking areas on state property and these facilities are being expanded as fast as possible. Many of the park lakes now have floating docks ready for this summer. At most parks with lakes the concessionaire provides rental boats. Maximum rental rates for these have been established by the Commission and are as follows. Row boats, 50 cents per hour for the first three hours and 25 cents per hour thereafter and not to exceed $2.00 per day. Boats on which motors are to be used 75 cents per hour for the first three hours and 35 cents per hour thereafter and not to exceed $3.00 per day. Additional accessories such as life preservers, lights, and fire extinguishers may be rented from the concessionaire. In order to comply with State law, the renter must rent or provide these additional items. Two more state park officers are changing parks this spring, and another lake is being lowered, the State Conservation Commission announced today. Officer changes are as follows: Officer Dean Dalzier - Old park Walnut Woods State Park, West Des Moines and his new park is Springbrook at Guthrie Center. Jim McEldoon - old park - A. A. Call, Algona and his new park is Lake Manawa, Council Bluffs. Jerry Kann, formerly of Palisades-Kepler, Mt. Vernon, has resigned to enter private business. Kann was scheduled to take over the officer duties at Lake Manawa. As announced previously, Don Cole, formerly of Springbrook, will be Make it a habit to keep your feet on the ground and you'll never have far to fall.
