[ SCHOOL AND YOUR CHILD
*T John Corey, Appalachian State Taachan Collage
So your child’s teacher is a
What can you do about it?
There’re many things, but in
forming the teacher of her
shortcomings or demanding , an
other instructor certainly isn’t
the immediate answer declares
Professor Cratis Williams, dean
of graduate studies, Appalach
ian State Teachers College,
Boone, N. C.
First, ascertain for sure if the
teacher isn’t up to par. And
. don’t depend entirely upon Jun
ior’s judgment, advises 'Dean
Remember, every child meets
a variety of teachers, some of
whom he likes, some he dislikes.
Often there’ll be a personality
clash so that one child gets
along poorly with a schoolmarm
while another gets along well,
adds Dr. Robert J. Havighurst,
famous University of Chicago
education professor and writer.
The child that doesn’t get
along “must learn to put up
with such a teacher unless the
conflict between the two is so
great that everyone agrees there
should be a change,” states Dr.
Teachers form a part of re
ality to which children must ad
just, according to Professor
Havighurst. He remembers a
sensitive and spoiled eight-year
old who came home at noon in,
tears because “The teacher’s 1
voice hurts my ears.”
The mother gave the boy a
hot bath, put him to bed and
then took the lad out of school
and tutored him herself.
This probably was a mistake,
Havighurst thinks. The mother
should have sympathized With
the youth but at the same time
acquainted him with the fact
of .life that boys must learn
to get along with people—even
"'those with unpleasant voices—
and sent him back to school.
Occasionally, there’s a situa
tion where a teacher is bad for
nearly all children, admits Dr.
Havighurst. In this case, par
ents can do little other than to
complain to the principal or su
perintendent so that the teacher
will either be removed or under

When a farmer sig*s to par

that he is going to help build a

This participation is a recog
nition of his responsibility to
help protect the nation’s soil
and water resources. It also
signifies that he is cooperating

Appalachian’s Dean Williams in
In the meantime, however,
Junior’s still in the lemon teach

Williams says this:
Giving the instructor a piece
of your mind seldom helps.
Neither does it do any good
to let Junior know there’s a
clash between home and school.
Probably the best thing is to
visit the teacher and inquire in
a friendly manner how you can
help Junior improve his school

, the boy doesn’t appear to be
working up to his usual capacity.
This indirect hint and your dis
play of interest in the class may

Lesson Text: Psalms 96; 103
Today we consider the import
ance of learning to say “Thank
you,” especially to God.
Psalm 103, which we are
studying today, is a pean of
thanksgiving to God for all his
goodness to us. It is, indeed,
one of the noblest of all the
Psalms. Its witness *o the truth
that “God is love” is unsurpassed
in the Old Testament. As we
read its verses, who among us
can fail to be moved by its
charity, the beauty of its cad

difficult it seems to learn to
say “thanks!” It is as if we
are afraid that, by being gra
cious, we are parting with
something of ourseives, and
against that we rebel!
But gratitude is a virtue we
should cultivate. To give thanks
is a just debt we owe to oth
ers. Although it is the least we
can do, it means much to them.
Our gratitude strengthens their
faith in God and man, encour
ages them in virtue, guards
against their becoming weary in
well-doing, and gives them a
sense of worth and joy that is
beyond the price of rubies.
The practice of gratitude is
helpful to us, too, as individ
uals. Only those who remember
to give thanks fully enjoy their
As we look around us, it is
easy to see the grateful people
in this world. And if our eyes
i are truly perceptive we will no
tice a strange phenomena.
All too often the people who
fail to give thanks for their
blessings are the very ones who
have the most to be thankful
for. A beautiful home, wealth,
position, a life that is full of
ease, with none of the tensions
of poverty, no risk of the dread
diseases that poverty so often
trails in its wake. And these

THE CHURCH FOR ALL . . .
ALL FOR THE CHURCH
The Church is the greatest factor on
earth for the building of character and
good citizenship. It is a storehouse of
spiritual values. Without a strong Church,
neither democracy nor civilization can
survive. There are four sound reasons
why every person should attend services
regularly and support the Church. They
are: (I) For his own sake. (2) For his
childrens sake. (3) For the sake of his
community and nation. (4) For the sake
of the Church itself, which needs his
moral and material support. Flan to go
