Many of the better designers of at-home clothes are taking the television hour into consideration and have made lovely clothes that are suitable either for. entertaining informally at home, ' or for double duty,, at home and abroad. . Mattoon Women's Clubs By ANNE YATES CLARKE Television has brought a new way Because they don't want tc be in of life to many people and with it a new mode of . dressing. It means more evenings at home, more entertaining at home. When you invite guests in to see a special event or for an evening before the screen school and sometimes would much rather be somewhere else, anywhere, else. ' ' What we must discover is why they want to be somewhere else, why they feel so miserable in ' school that they will brave the consequences of truancy.

TO TALK IN MONTICELLO Monticello (Staff) Speech correction work being it calls for a new arrangement of the room, for different clothes, perhaps even different refreshments. No longer is the" "above the table" dresc important as it was in the days of bridge or more lately for canasta." Now, you may sit on the floor, on the arm of a sofa or you will be moving around to see that your guests are comfortable. You will need a flattering dress with a full" skirt that will arrange easily in any of the above poses, or you will wear the slimmest of slacks if you have the figure, with a blouse or weskit that is both comfortable and pretty. Most "television" clothes are not restricted tc wear at home. If your social lite calls for dinner or short evening gowns the same entertaining-at-home dress can be worn to an opening night, to a concert or to a restaurant. It will do just as well for a bridge or canasta. party. Slacks and the more intimate type of hostess gown have more limited uses, but they are still preferred by many women who spend most of their evenings at home and who like their comfort and casual effect. Velvet and velveteen score this year "in both skirts and slacks, and are often teamed to dressy, glittering tops or blouses.

Kipfer of Pontiac and Robert By RUTH COWAN Of the Associated Press - Washington, Nov. 8 ' Women members of Congress tine. We always found that if the straying one found a real friend in a teacher he ceased to stray. He might not become an "A" pupil but he did become a present pupil instead of an absent one. . One child played truant because he was oversized for his class. The other pupils were evenly sized, interested in the same things mainly, and got along well enough. He fitted nowhere. The seats were too small, he couldn't enter into the games, he just didn't fit. His place was at the end of the line where he towered above it like a telephone pole. When he was given a program that allowed him to travel with groups in which his size was less conspicuous, where he could do work suited to his weight and height in the shops, he felt better" and attended regularly. , A SICK CHILD cannot learn. If illness is proved to be the cause of truancy the answer is plain. His health must " come first, lessons afterward. The child who stays out of classes because his clothes are unsuitable surely can be helped promptly by his teacher friends. That is done almost daily In any large school, frequently in small ones, too. The dull-minded child needs special instruction and should not, for his sake and the sake of his classmates and his long-suffering teacher, be asked to take 'subjects for which he has no ability. Whatever strengths he has should be accented by a teacher trained for this special service. WHAT ABOUT the unhappy child whose home background is so miserable that he has no rest for the sole of his foot or the peace of his mind? - . ' . ..-'.. He is the one problem that society must solve bjpproviding the solution' that seems best for his difficulties. Truancy Is ; an indication of a misfit child. It is our duty to find what causes the misfit and adjust things so he can fit. Compulsory education laws cannot take the. place of helpful attitudes and practical service.
