High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - April 7, 1974, High Point, North Carolina 2a High Point Enterprise sunday april 7,197 by Forrest Cates the Bright boys on Madison Avenue Are trying to find out about headaches so they can put out another one of those reports and earn their pay. They figure newspaper City editors ought to know a lot about headaches since City editors Are a headache lot. In a questionnaire they asked City editors things like How Long have your headaches been with you once a Day several times a week and what do you do about them shout drink Coffee walk around suffer in silence take something they failed to mention the Best thing a kicking the daylights out of your dog a but leave a place to write it in the questions Are pretty polite until you get to the Bottom. Right out in the open they ask a a what a the Best cure for a hangover a not do you have hangover just How to cure them. Personally i resent the implication that City editors have hangovers. I Don t necessarily deny it i just resent it. Since practically everybody has an ulterior motive for practically every thing a Guy has to be careful he does t panic then he opens his mail these Days. I opened a letter from a Public relations outfit the other Day and practically broke up my Happy Home. The first line in the letter said a when did you last take a look at your propeller not just to see if it was still there but to Check it for Nicks and cracks a i realized with a Start that i did no to even know if my propeller was intact much less whether it bore Nicks and cracks. I dashed madly Over the House looking for the missing propeller berating my wife and kids for misplacing it. Finally my wife trapped me in a Corner and explained i did t have a propeller never had one and better Damn sight never buy one what with having neither air plane or boat to put it on and we needing so Many other things before we got either. Calmer i finished Reading the letter. It turned out it was talking about boat propellers. If you Are fortunate enough to have a propeller with or without boat. I d strongly advise you to Check it for Nicks and cracks a or else you surely Are headed for the bad place or something else awful. I he Way City editors Are deluged with statistics. It s a wonder they retain the few buttons they have. La hat you have tit do is rationalise figure out who is behind All those Odd and Assn Adry facts the mails bring. Here s a few a Odd facts a from last week s mail a nine out of to Forest fires Are caused by you know who started that Rumor. A lady Forest Ranger of course. A women have twice As Many nightmares As that had to be conveniently contrived by a faithless wife to explain Why she called out a strange Man s name in her sleep.

Wilson who is running for the democratic nomination Tor the . Senate has spent $55,000 on his Campaign. $20.-000 More than the Law allows according to records tiled with the Secretary of state in Raleigh.

Wilson told the associated press that he had read the account and it was Correct.

Miss etude son is the daughter of or. And mrs. Jesse Ruderson of Henry Street. Master teacher brings out Best in pupils last week when Lena Couch of Caldwell school in Greensboro was named runner up in the Terry Sanford award Competition at the annual North Carolina Assn. Of educators convention in Charlotte. High Point could feel a Little personal Pride too. Miss Couch is a former teacher at Johnson Street school and i particularly remember her because she was my son s fourth Grade teacher the Terry Sanford award is presented annually to an educator who has displayed outstanding innovation and creativity and miss Couch was especially commended for inspiring her students to social action. Her students at Caldwell were instrumental in enactment of a state Law prohibiting the Sale of live animals As toys. The Sale of baby Chicks at Al Aster seemed especially cruel to the students i have had several opportunities to hear about miss Couch s excellence in teaching. In a graduate school course in social studies last fall my professor told about his child a teacher approaching the teaching of values and social studies with such an original approach. He told about How enthused his child had become about school since he had been in her class. This was a professor who uses a great Deal of creativity and original approaches in teaching himself so i considered that a top compliment for a master teacher from a master teacher a who is she a i asked and when he answered Quot miss Lena Couch i shared his enthusiasm a i remember a i told him a that when my son was in fourth Grade she was a household word at our House. Miss Couch was so great and had such a sense of humor and could think of the Hest projects and school was really fun. Talking about her called for just one big Etc. For him you could not talk about miss coach without saying and she. And she this is the nature of creativity in teaching to me. Its not just the subject matter but the intangibles the teacher is Able to transmit to her students that county. I Kne a miss Couch then in 1 the capacity of a Parent but i knew her As the teacher of some of my friends children in later years. I remember one Case in particular. I said when i Learned that the son of one of my friends was in her class a does no the just love her a a strange look crossed her face. A the says she s too strict she answered. A the does no to think he a going to like the boy had been having trouble with All of his subjects and frankly did t give a Hoot about school. By midyear i saw the Friend again and asked if her son was still unhappy in school. A unhappy a she answered. A be s never loved school so much in his life. He does All his Homework and can to wait to get to school every the teacher he had thought was too strict. And she was and i assume still is strict. But she is strict in the sense that she As a teacher intends to see that each child gives the Hest of whatever is in him to give. No talents or abilities Are going to lie around wasting in her room. Just As she As strict around he he a in by Faye Marks though she was fair and just As she could be firm she could laugh with the children As Well. She had High expectations of her students and As is usually the Case when you expect the Best they tried to reach her expectations. Her specialness came across to me in a funny Way a couple of years ago years after my son was out of her class. I was discussing Corporal punishment in the schools with someone and i said a Well i can to speak from firsthand experience As a Parent because neither of mine have Ever been paddled in i the son who had been in miss Couch s class looked at tat me with a a who says?�?T1 i expression. A live been paddled said a when a i asked disbelieving. A in the fourth Grade a said in an offhand Way miss couches room i just could t belive it. His idol of those Days paddling him. When he was in her room it was like a Home on the Range a never was heard a discouraging word. She was perfect in his mind and that was that. A so what did she paddle you for a i asked marvelling that he had never before mentioned it. Well the infractions were minor but they involved not taking the responsibility for something he had been told to do forgetting it even alter school reminders it s a responsibility in be never known him to forget since which in my mind is a Case for Corporal punishment As Well As creative teaching. She does not remain an ogre in his mind a far from it a and As he says a it was no big deals. He deserve it. And i agreed that he die although As i said i Neve even knew it took place. I know that Many Parent in High Point an Greensboro thank Thi creative but pleasantly Fin teacher for instilling in the children a sense of fair Plaj of responsibility a sense humor a love of learning i m sure the Greensboro parents feel grateful to it for helping the student realize the excitement it becoming socially involve not just talking Abri changing the world by getting in there and doing i the Terry Sanford Awai involves a great Deal it Competition because there a lot of creativity an innovation going on in of schools of North Carolin and miss couches initial b Honor was being select Winner in District 7 of to Nae. To be runner up in to state is a tremendous Hono and As Caldwell school a Greensboro share i Couch s elation in a Sui nobody will mind if hit Point and Johnson Strei school s a buttons pop a Litt bit with Pride too 4 4
