Chicago, April 10.--Fifty years of teaching in the Chicago public schools have dispelled the idea from Miss Har riet N. Winchell's mind that depar tures from the "three R's" are fads. "I do not understand the word 'fads,'." she said. "I do not acknowledge the so-called fads. Anything that plays a good part in interesting the children that teaches them anything at all-is useful and should be encouraged. If only people-the well-meaning public that sees, but does not :nderstand- could take a peep behind the scenes they might not condemn fads. A fad is a transitory thing. Manual training, houshold arts, drawing, music and natural history and kindred topics are not transitory. .They are vital parts of life and should be treated as such. They interest the child because' he realizes that they are vital and, ac cordingly, he accepts each innovation according to its industrial value." For halt a century Miss Winchell has been connected with the Chicago public schools. She was a girl of 20 when she began as a first grade teach er after her graduation from the Chi cago normal school in 1864. A month later she was transferred and in 1867 she became head teacher to the Tilden school. Among the prominent people that have attended her classes are Richard T. Crane, Jr., Charles R. Crane, ('. . G Billings' and Mrs. Bill ings, then Miss Blanch McLecish, Lil lian Russel, Beatrice MacKenzie and "Tad" Lincoln.
