A boy and his father make the grade

Ray Richards parked in the drive and headed toward the back of the house. Spring was daubing the lawn with green, and he knew he would have to do something about the yard before it washed away. He wondered where he would find the time, for there was trouble in his house.

The trip

All through the sweltering summer of 175 years ago, the leaders of the American Revolution toiled in Philadelphia to create mankind's outstanding document of freedom-- the Constitution of the United States. They had fought a bitter war against the British to make possible this document; and some 70 years later, their descendants were yet to fight another bitter war, in which brother was pitted against brother, to preserve the union of free men that the Constitution guaranteed.

IS PTA DOING ANYTHING for our SCHOOLS?

"One day, my son came home from kindergarten screaming, 'Mom, you've got to go to the PTA meeting tonight, you've just got to!' and I read the paper he brought home saying that the PTA is solely responsible for any and all good relations between parent and teacher. He added that the only parents who don't belong are the ones who just don't care. So I went because naturally I cared and because everybody seemed to want me to pay the 50c that proved it. I walked into my son's kindergarten room, waited in line to introduce myself to the teacher, and right off the bat I put my foot in my mouth by asking, 'How is my son doing in school?' The teacher laughed for a little while, then explained that this was no time to discuss a student, 'not in front of all these people.'
