It Takes More Than Glamour To Make Proper School Teacher - &_ BY RUTH MILLETT Johnny is a high school fresh man. It is important to America whether or not Johnny learns to think straight in the next few years. It is important to America that Johnny, growing up in one of Amer ica’s small towns, has the very best leadership. It is important that the grown-ups who guide his thinking will be people who are capable of giving Johnny a true picture of what is going on in the world today, of what he owes his country as well as what it owes him. Never before has it been quite so important for young Americans to have the finest type of leader ship that can be found. The generation that is in school today must believe so strongly in the American way of life and be so willing to support it in every way that no form of foreign prop aganda can mislead them. Since this is true, it would seem that school boards and school su perintendents who choose the teachers for the young people of their community would be con cerned about finding the most in telligent, capable teachers that they can find among educated loyal Americans But are they? “Peppy” Teachers For Times Of Peril Well, here are what school su perintendents in Iowa want in their women teachers—according to the head of the Placement Bureau at Iowa State Teachers’ College. They want teachers who aren’t fat, who walk briskly but don’t stride, who are “peppy,’ and who (most important of all) don’t smoke. This is 1941. Men, women and children in civilized countries are playing hide-and-seek with dive bombers. No one knows whether democracy, as we know it today, will survive. The future of every boy and girl in this country is in secure Hard, perhaps desperate times are ahead. And yet we are still choosing our young folk’s teachers on the basis of a nice figure, peppy per sonality, and no ‘bad habits.’ Poor Johnny! No wonder he is a sucker for misguided youth movements. 5 Bulgaria has been the scene of violence and bloodshed from the earliest times.

These, with those who have never been wedded, whose gross income was $800 or more, must file an in come tax return. Every married person, living with husband or wife, is no joint return is made, who has a gross income of $2,000 or more, must also file an income tax return. If the husband and wife each has am income, and their aggregate gross income is $2,000 or more, they must file an income tax return. Husband and wife living together at the close of the taxable year may file a single joint return (even though one has no gross income), or make separate returns of the income of each. If separate re turns are filed, one may not re port income which belongs to the other, but must report only the income which actually belongs to him. If a joint return is filed, the aggregiate income disclosed is sub ject to both the normal tax and the surtax. The liability with re spect to the tax on a joint return is joint and several. A joint return may not be made if either hus band or wife is a nonresident alien. If a joint return is not made by an agent of the taxpay rs, it must be signed by both husband and wife and sworn to before a proper officer by the spouse preparing the return, or if neither or both pre pare the return, then by both spouses. Where separate returns are filed by husband and wife, the joint per sonal exemption of $2,000 may be taken by either or divided between them in any proportion as agreed upon. Husband and wife may elect each year to file a joint return or separate returns. Where, however, joint or separate returns have been filed for a particular rear, neither husband nor wife may, after the date of return, file an amended return or returns on a different basis for that year.

Jessell’s Wife Cannot Perform in Night Club BOSTON, Jan. 31.—OP)—The tra ditional prerogative of her sex to be a bit vague over ages failed to serve Lois Andrews Jessell, wife of comedian Geo’rge, today and she cannot perform in a Boston night club. Soon after state officials had ex pressed themselves as satisfied that Lois was 21 and therefore entitled to entertain in establish ments where liquor is sold, some one resorted to a flash of lightning calculation, based on the fact that Lois gave her age as 15 when she and Jessell were married about a year ago. That left 16, a figure confirmed in Los Angeles, where she was born in 1924. So the Labor department notified the night club Lois’ appearance would bring prosecution, and the night club told Lois—no, no, no.
