Dinner honors 30 killed in Walter Ock a Nesit Ane Cash tie teachers colleges became so absorbed in methods and in psychology of the child that they forgot that a teacher does not just teach she teaches a subject and ought to be required to know that subject with sufficient competence to inspire the students interest. Granted that methodology has its value the subject is the honoured at Sheaffer Plant of course religious prejudice is not unusual anywhere and appears in Many forma in the United states. It is often aimed particularly at catholics and jews but educated men and women ought to know better and ought not to permit their minds to be cluttered with the rubbish of Ages.

It is permissible to Post in class-100ms the Wisdom of Socrates of confucius of Voltaire and even of Karl Marx but it is not permissible to Post the ten commandments to remind the children of the moral Law Day work week at ordnance Plant four of the guests. Mrs. Clark and soc attended fifty years ago. The opponents of the ten commandments contend that to remind children that it is gods Law not to murder and steal is to violate the american Constitution particularly the first. Amendment which has nothing to say about the separation of the state from morality. As the school authorities do not wish to set into controversies they Are opposed to posting the ten commandments even As a pin up. So those who favor giving the children an Eye opener that it is Stone to commit adultery have gone to the legislature to have a Law passed making it permissible tor a St Hool Board to Post the ten r Man dents. The Bill is encountering some to share in $10,000 gift gun victim s car makes Stop Here youths cases in juvenile court w Capon will admitted it would seem that beaten up school teachers and the parents of raped and otherwise pregnant daughters would demand that the school bring a Little morality into the classroom.
