for the teacher it is a lot more fun.

"It's interesting to come to a place where you stop and take
stock as I've been doing this anniversary year. As I
look back, I realize that great things have been hap-
pening in kindergarten and primary education in the last
forty years. I think the children are happier now than
they used to be, more normal in mind and body because we
understand them better. But it is only a beginning we have
made after all, in spite of our records and our measurements
and everything there is so much yet to do! Children I wish
I could stay in kindergarten with them forty years more!"

HEAVENLY DISCOURSE

By Charles Erskine Scott Wood

Drawings by Art Young and Hugo Gellert

The all-star cast includes Billy Sunday, Satan, Roosevelt,
Jesus, Rabelais, Ingersoll, God, Mark Twain, Bishop Brown,
St. Peter and others. The discourse sparkles. "Voltairean!"
Romain Rolland calls these brilliant dialogues. Wit, biting
truth, slap-stick humor, imagination. Laughter rocks the
heavens and human foundations tremble.

JOHN MACY "A glorious book, serious and funny, sad and up-
roarious."

INEZ HAYNES IRWIN "Is breath-taking, and the racing dialogue
both suave and acid."

FLOYD DELL "The satires are, in their wit and truth and imagina-
tion, the expression of a large and noble mind."

CHARLES W. WOOD "Just a word of caution. Do not give this
book away indiscriminately."

YELENKA THE WISE 1.50



BY ANNE DARLINGTON

Old folk tales woven into plays and operet-
tas. Most dramatic but simple to produce.
They have been given very successfully.
One particular merit is that they are so
arranged that they may be rehearsed in
small groups although using a sizeable cast.
This is a great advantage.

The Saturday Review of Literature says :
"They are so well done as to make enter-
taining reading for anyone. The prose is
excellent, the action lovely and the peculiar
charm of each nationality well guarded."

A CCORDING to tradition, Janu-
/V. ary first is the date on which good
resolutions are made. That's a poor
time for them. September first is bet-
ter. For most of us the new year
opens up after the vacation period. It
is then that ambitious plans are made
and the work for autumn and winter
mapped out.

On this September first, what have
you resolved for the coming year?
Why not promise yourself to spend
that wasted half hour each day in some
interesting subject outside your daily
routine?

Each organization listed here wants
your interest, your friendship and con-
structive help. Each is engaged in
making 1927-28 a year of social en-
lightenment. Each depends upon men
and women like yourself as collabora-
tors. Set yourself the task of being
sponsor and friend for one of these
organizations in your community.
