School_
In the beginning
By Allie Tardy
Marcia Jordan
Today, Monday, I have had
the most enjoyable experience
of a short, but precisely to
the point, interview with a
pair of youngsters who have
just had their very first day
in school. I suppose most of
us adults, Regardless of
years, have an exceptional^7
clear recollection or OUR first
day, even though we have
forgotten many days during
the passage of time, and as
one looks into the shining face
and clear eyes of a child who,
today, has marked a mile
stone in his or her short life,
it behooves us to say prayer
John Doty Porter
fully, “Let it be a good world
for them - - a peaceful world
- - let them grow each year
straight and tall and proud in
their inheritance as Ameri
cans.”
So - - first - I had the plea
sure of discussing the aspects
of the first day of that great
j mystery, known as school,
| with young Master John Dot}
I Porter. John Doty is the sou
of Mr. and Mrs. Doty Porter
of Lexington, and since hr
has an older brother, Alfred,
who is this year in the 4th
grade, and since he has lived
some of his earlier years
within a stone s inrow oi rne
school, the whole business of
school is not as new to him
as it is to some who are fur
ther removed from the school
premises. (In fact my daugh
ter, who is a sophomore this
year, made the remark that
-he didn’t knotw what the
high school students were go
ing to do this year without
having John Doty to watch as
he played right outside the
windows on the East side oi
the school). So all in all
school is not so new' to Master
I’orter, but being a part of
;hat school is new, and 1 am
under the impression, at this
time, that- h- was enchanted
v« ith his first day. He told
me la'is teacher was Mrs.
Hush, whom he assured me
was very nice and whom he
liked, in fact he says he liked
everything today except
“There wras just one thing 1
didn’t like. I coucin’t find
Mama.” It seems that he mis
placed his room, too, and the
bathroom, but these didn’t
seem to be of grave import
ance.
In answer to my question oi
what the first grade did to
day, he stated positively,
“Nothing but run and play
and sit down in a desk,” and
what more can one ask. He
was also pleased to repoiv
that he was able to sit b>
| ais friend, Mark Riley, who
he says is his best friend in
the First grade.
Getting down to the serious
matter of learning, I inquir
ed as to what he was most
mterested in learning to do
in school, and it seems read
ing takes precedence over
anything else for he wants to
be able te read “Green Eggs
and Ham” and “The Cat in
, the Hat Comes Back” all by
; himself.
This just about concluded
j our interview, except that he
. snpped on the way out to
tell me that ne did not wear
his new shoes to school today,
deciding on his tennis shoes
' instead. (Old shoes do be
come much better friends
’ when there is so many new
things to be faced up to, sc
I believe pretty good judg
1 ment was exemplified). Any
way, as he was getting intc
, the car. he called back to his
i mother, “Come on Mama
1 let’s go back to school, it’s af
; ter dinner now.” I personal
ly feel certain that Bchool
will be richer and a much
more interesting place, with
.he presence of John Doty.
Little Marcia Jordan was
my second subject for inter
view as to impressions on her
first day at school. Marcia,
who is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Bill Jordan ol Lex
ington, made it very plain
that her happiest thougnt a
bout the first day is most
certainly the fact that most
of (her kindergarten group
will also be in ner room m
school. Also that Mrs. Kusn,
who is her neighbor, is to ue
her teacher. She tninks may
be the hardest part of gomg
to school will be tne getting
up so early in the morning.
tAnd isn’t that tne Hardest
part to all of us, young or
old?). She, also, warns most
of all to learn to read arm
sne says that her lavome
books are just all kinus or
story books.
Marcia, who is six, is a very
poised young lady for her
age, and informed her moth
er that although she accom
panied her to school today,
she would not have to go with
her tomorrow, “because, now
I know tire way.” She was
very obviously pleased and
nappy about the whole busi
ness of school, and upon listen
ing to her mother and me
converse about the weather
being so hot for school, she
said, “It wasn’t very hot,”
which sorta sums up the who
le thing. If an experience is
both gratifying and satisfying
who cares about the weather?
Aren’t kids wonderful?
rat
tales
By Johnny Tardj!
Jeanie and Butch Pepper’s
uncle, Bob caught us a great
old big bullfrog. We had six
frogs but one of them died
and three got away. The one
that died was a little bitty one
and it was red. We kept some
of the frogs in the bath tub
for awhile - • until my moth
er found them.
I went to my grandmother’s
in Sallis and went to her pond
and caught a bass that weigh
ed about one pmnd and my
daddy caught one that weigh
ed about two pounds. I caught
a snake, too. It was about f:ve
feet long and it had a cat
fish. I caught the snake with
a forked stick. I jammed the
stick over his head, then he
couldn’t get away. I punched
his head down in the sand
with the stick and he was
still holding on to the catfish.
Finally he let go.
Last Saturday we had com
pany. The Hendersons. They
used to be our next door
neighbors when we lived in
Kosciusko. Mr. Henderson
Mrs. Henderson, Chuck, Be
verly and Paul all came.
iLey ate supper with us. We
,iad a good time. We played
Freeze Tag and Char|D. Paul
was *t. Paul is 4 years old.
I went to Johnny O’Kelly’s
birthday party L.,i week and
he got a bow and arrow and
a Slinky and two models, a
car and an airplane, two chec
ker boards and some rockets
and some more things. We
had a good time. The nex!
night I spent the night with
Johnny O'Kelly and we were:
going to stay up all night but
we went to sleep with our
clothes on.
I started to school Monday
and my teacher is Mrs. O’Reil
ly. She is a nice teacher. Me
and Butch didn’t get in the
same room this year.
Last night we had some
more company. The Fontains.
They have a little boy nam
ed Clay and he likes to pull
clown things.
I’ll be back.
