While studying ear- ly Chicago in their social studies class, the students engaged their different talents in labora' very ways. In order to depict where the Indians lived, they made corn shuck dolls, quivers, tepees, and a large totem pole similar to Ihosc made by thc Indians. This classroom art project was roundly praised by all who saw the stu- dents handiwork. No wonder. Miss Mildred Marsh, 3rd grade teacher, is smiling as she points lo her students with pride. The students also appear to be pleased with themselves. THE BULLETIN NEWSPAPER AND THE WOODLAWN BOOSTER CIRCULATION OFFICE HAS MOVED TO 633 EAST 71st STREET (19) IRENE'S BEAUTY SHOP 483-3275
