Kids don't have to hate school

Boys and girls who don't like school usually learn less-- and learn more slowly-- than those who do like it. A youngster may well be bright enough to do superior work, but if he has no taste for school, he may barely squeak by in his studies.

November 4, 1952

On November 4, 1952, we Americans are going on trial before the entire world to answer these charges: (1) We were too busy making money to take an interest in our government and our community. (2) We did not believe in the democracy we boasted about. (3) We were cynical, and did not believe there was any difference between the American political parties or the men who were seeking office.

Today's building materials and methods mean-- Cold-climate comfort

Janesville, Wisconsin, is not noted for its moderate climate. In fact, people there will tell you with a rather fierce pride of temperatures ranging from 27 degrees below zero in winter to 110 above in summer. Winters there are long and severe, with 30 inches of snow on the average; summers can be very warm.

Color schemes with a future

There's an idea for you in the clean-cut, simplified color schemes which are now the favorite of some of the country's most creative decorators. We don't mean some special color which may be popular today and ready for discard tomorrow. That's too extravagant for us! Rather it's a special new way of choosing and combining colors-- such as doing a complete room in light pastel blue with all the furniture in brown; or a bedroom with chairs, curtains, spread in yards and yards of identical chintz, maybe violet, pink, and black with violet walls.

See yourselves in The Mirror of Youth

I asked guys and gals in all four classes at our school when they thought was a good time to start dating. The answers all ran about the same: "You have to consider each individual separately." "Some people are ready to start having dates sooner than others, so it's hard to say for sure." Several thought high-school freshmen or 15-year-olds ought to start going on dates. Everyone agreed that the first few dates should be planned so that the couple would be with other couples their own age-- double or group dates.

Hunting can be a family affair

When autumn's crisp weather rolls round and the leaves are brittle and brown, do you have the urge to join the thousands who troop to the outdoors-- to the hunting fields and woods-- for an exhilarating, tangy, sport-filled day? But you don't go because you don't know how to hunt? And no one in your family knows how to hunt-- and the kids want to learn-- and you want to teach them the RIGHT way-- but you're stuck because of lack of information?
