SCHOOL ought to be a lovely
place. Children thrive best In
beautiful surroundings. That does
not mean elegant surroundings.
Things can be beautiful without
being elegant, or expensive, or
loud. Beauty is always best when
dressed in simplicity. ;
A school building ought to be
long and low, spread out on the
grass like a brooding hen. Vines
should dress the walls and old trees
shade its grounds. Flowering
shrubs should snuggle tn the cor
ners where children’s feet do not 1
reach them, and tucked in about
their roots the spring bulbs should
The inside of the building is
where children live. That means
that it should be as beautiful as It
can be made without becoming ob
viously decorated. <
I think there ought to be one
good picture in every room. I like
that picture to be the one that ap
peals strongest to the children who'
use that room. Pictures ought to
Inspire the children, so they must
be those that the children can read.
They can only read a picture that
calls upon their experience and
their dreams.
I would not have a lot of chil
dren’s work pinned about a room.
It gathers dust. i
Schoolrooms are not a good
place for plants and animals, birds
and fishes. If we can make them
beautiful for the children we are
doing well. t
First, let us make them clean.
The walls, the floor, the ceiling and
the woodwork, all ought to be clean
as brush and cleansing water can
make them. The furniture should
be smooth, its fair surface un
marred. The chairs and benches
ought to be comfortable. It costs no
more to supply a comfortable bench
than to buy one that makes a child
hunch and huddle and squirm to
find a comfortable angle in it.
There must be plenty of light
and air. A dark room with poor
ventilation is never beautiful. The
closets and wardrobes should be
sufficient and they should be con
venient. When hooks are higher
than children’s heads they cannot
hang their things on them and they
use the floor Instead. Whatever
makes for cleanliness, order, con
venience, and comfort will make
the classroom and the school a
beautiful place to live. This is a
good time to check up on paint and
washing powders, furniture and
equipment Where the children live
ought to be a place of beauty.

Goo J Taste Today
©/“Etiquette,** “The Blue Book
of Social Usage,”
WRITING Paper for Men: Good
taste exacts that stationery
for al) men be very conservative.
Color of writing paper: White,
cream, the deeper shades of blue, or
any of the grayish mixtures known
as granite. (Plain gray is better
for an older man than for a young
one.) Smartest style of paper:
Either bond or Irish linen or gran
ite. Any plain paper with cut edges,
proper. Size: Large rather than
small. Size: Double sheet 5% by
8% inches in best taste. Single
sheets slightly larger. Unlined en
velopes with plainest flap. Stamp
ing: Address or block initials, or
full name and address. (Mr. is
never included under any circum
stances.) A man’s business address
is put on the face of the envelope
rather than on the flap. Personal
paper has the address (if any)
across the flap. Color of stamping
(or printing): black or blue or gray
or brick red. Ink: Blue or black.
Writing Paper for Women: White,
cream, all blues, grays and mauves.
Very pale powder pink bond paper
is just on the edge of possibility
but to be avoided by the unknow
ing. I wish I might approve of green
but I really can’t Size: Very small
or medium large, Single or double
sheets. Very smart is the double
sheet of paper that fits without fur
ther folding into a big envelope.
Texture of paper unlimited, but cut
edges are more convenient than
rough. Any colored border fash
ionable—even green or red —if it be
very narrow, but gilt or silver edges
tabu. Stamping: Monogram, ini
tials or address in color to match
the border. A girl’s name—either
“Mary Smith” in full or “Mary,”
embossed in color, Is popular for a
young girl when writing to her own
friends. On paper for social use the
address without the name is proper
on the flap of the envelope as well
as on the paper—or if the monogram
or name is stamped on paper, the
address is often put across the flap
of the envelope. Envelope lined with
plain tissue to match the color of
the stamping (and border) or no
lining. Avoid violently patterned
envelope linings except for Christ
mas cards. Ink: Black, neutral,
tint, blue, violet. (Green and red
are tabu).
