Watch for their first perform ance. Our Children By ANGELO PATRI ©, Bell Syndicate.—WNU Service THE TEACHER’S DRESS THE teacher’s dress is part of the classroom atmosphere. I would say that It was a very large part of it. The children-look at the teacher all day long. If what they see Is pleasant, if the colors are bright, if the style is good, the pic ture attractive, the children feel better. Anything that makes them feel better makes them do better. The teacher’s dress affects them one way or the other and for every body's sake let us hope It is for the better. Bright red clothes are not for classroom. A red costume would stimulate a class out of bounds. The teacher would have a bad day. Red Is cheerful but it has other qualities that make ft unfit for school wear. Blue Is always good. The children love it. Teachers ought not to wear mourning clothes in the classroom. If they feel they must wear them they ought to be laid aside during school hours. It is our duty to make school a cheerful, pleasant, place. Our trou bles, our disturbed feelings, our prejudices are not to touch the children if we can help it. We will carry our ghosts with us and they will make themselves felt to the children without dressing the part We should leave our mourning at home. Children note the details of the teacher's dress and these stay with them. They become standards for the children in school when they are good. They become pivots upon which to hang personal dislike when they are not good. I have a distinct memory of a teacher who wore a hrown tailor-made dress with a narrow silk braid down the seams. With the dress she wore an orange bow at her throat. I thought her beautiful In that dress. I never think of her save in that gown and the thought never fails to give me pleasure. I wanted my clothes to have that very clean, smooth, pleas ing quality that was in hers. They went so well with her fine face and beautiful manner. There is another picture I have In my memory. It comes every time I see an untidy, careless, colorless person. A teacher gave me that picture, too. She never had a chance to give me anything else. My ears wene closed against what my eyes had pronounced unfit. A teacher’s dress ought to be a pattern, an inspiration, a Joy to the children In her care. Most of the time we find them that way. It is only the exceptional person whp offends. That one Is too many. * i ± •» - z C St. Paul Society News J Mrs. Oscar Tudas, 707 Rondo St., was hostess to the “Square Deal Political and Civic club” at an election party, Tuesday eve ning, Nov. 6, to hear the election returns.
