Miss Asplund feels that it is "necessary only to achieve one goal to have the child love to learn. He must be taught to enjoy reading and discover- ing new things fn math. "I think that right now there is too much separation of sub- ject matter, too much differ- ence between math and art, for instance. There should be a feeling of totality about learn- ing.

ITS BEEN CLOSE to four months now, and the grasi L still isn't dead. My battle began somehwere in the beginnings o( sum- mer, and finding out that niece and nephew would no longer need to be babysat. As it was, the world wasn't ready to let me be, and quickly devised a plan to keep me busy. The day the lawTunower was brought out, I knew I'd had it. There it was, in all it's orange bcbladed glory, sneering at me through both grass blowers. The cord was eons long, as heavy as it looked, and twlct as uncontrollable once the mowing process had begun. The mower had seen better days and now tormented mt with two rock-chipped and candy-wrapped dultencd blades. Blessedly, the machine wasn't heavy, and conceded to co- operate for a goodly portion of the lime it was in use. Unfortunately, it was the grass that refused to have any- thing to do with me, and protested vehemently at being cut. After each session, the green shoots sprouted twice as tall and ever so resilient. The back lawn threatened to overgrow a four-foot fence, envelop the clothes line, and almost gave way to several new species o[ large-size bugs. One side threw in the towel and happily sprouted forth dandelions instead of grass. Some evenings would find me staring glumly into the void, dreaming of artificial turf, DDT and the possibilities of gaso- line. In retaliation, the grass grew all the more voraciously, caused me more undue anxiety and continued to clog up the mower with huge soggy lumps. At this point, my only consolation is the advent of winter, and the hopes of permafrost.
