May 4 - Parents Day
Sour Lake, Texas, May 4 - Parent’s day at the Sour Lake school is firmly established. Its right to a place in the sun of the institution was proved yesterday when city and countryside, dolled up for the occasion, chucked their affairs for the affairs of the rising generation. Briefly, Parents’ day is a day set apart for the inspection of the work of the student body of the institution, which is both Sour Lake’s High school and Grade school. The first idea for the day, originated and sponsored by Superintendent J. G. Fuqua, formerly the principal of the high school and other public schools of Beaumont, was probably conceived to give parents an opportunity to check up” on the progress which Mary and John were making with their studies - to find out for a certainty whether “the high taxes are being spent rightly.” Advanced Methods. Now if that question was asked, either audibly or to one’s self, the answer has been snapped back. It was not given to the thousand or two people who visited the school by Superintendent Fuqua, nor J. L. Johnson, principal of the high school. That is not directly. It was a case of their work speaking for itself. It was a case of unquestionable, hard facts staring the seeker in the face. It was a case of resolute sticking out at you wherever you looked. The day was an education for the parents. It put the era of the “little red school” a little further in the dim background and displayed the tremendous value of the modern public school, with “all the advantages,” as one dear old lady put it, “that they didn’t have when I was a girl.” And a much younger woman, standing near by, remarked that “the things that these kids have today to fit them for the skirmish of life, as compared with the hit-or-miss system of public education of only a few years ago could almost give a fellow a slight touch of the blues.” Yesterday was the day when Superintendent Fuqua and his stall of teachers laid their cards upon the table, showed Sour Lake and Hardin county what they were doing for and to their children, and let them judge for themselves, whether the results be good or bad. Old Schoolhouse Gone. The Sour Lake school presents two rather contrasty pictures. One is faded. the other is bright. Six years ago on the school campus sat an old wooden house not so very far removed from the “little red one.” Its walls were written upon with pencil and chalk, and its woodwork bore the cuttings of countless “Barlow knives,” if you can remember that far back. If Octavus Roy Cohen were writing this he’d say that discipline was then the thing the school had “everything else but.” And results were along the same line. They were well scribbled up and whittled down. But at that the school was hardly an exception. There were many like it. It simply repredented a day that was about to close, and which has now disappeared as “good riddance.” The other picture, a considerably better executed piece of work: A modern building, whose children are disciplined and like it fine; who are nurtured as would be rare orchids, not all treated alike as a row of bricks in a kiln but as variegated, delicate, human plants that they are - each personality given its own chance to bloom in the sunlight. That is the modern idea as practiced with wisdom in a modern school. Sour Lake is a small city, perhaps little known aside from its reputation for producing considerable petroleum and possessing the largest crude oil line pumping station in Texas, but here goes the prediction that it will be heard from in a few years to come. As a point we offer the following and humbly ask forgiveness of our young friend. Anyway he gives consent. Fifteen and freckled as ever you saw a boy freckled in your life, he was credited with holding the “cussin’ championship” of Sour Lake, if not Hardin county. He admits it himself. He was a bright youngster, but he didn’t like government in accordance however with the dislike of every normal boy and his very brightness made the men jibe him and so he “cussed” long and loudly. He today is the best known boy in the Sour Lake school and the most trusted boy in that school, and that is saying a great deal because there aren’t many who aren’t. More than Just a School. Sour Lake has more than a mere school. It has a thing that its children love and when you make a kid love something you’ve got him thrown and tied all in one operation. There’s one youngster in the kindergarten who refuses to go to only one class a day. He takes both of them and always makes a day of it at the school. And that, mind you, isn’t because the boy is the son of Professor Fuqua, either. Just a few of the things your children could get if they lived in Sour Lake: Classic dancing, piano instruction, modern methods of business, public speaking, physical culture and the usual “readin’, ritin’, an’ ‘rithmetic,” brought, however, strictly up to date. And then there is domestic science. A row of lassies, sunny, perhaps now and then singin
110121 Big Tidy Up
I should have spent a week over the Christmas break doing a big summer clean..but I went away instead. Changing the angle on my drawing board last week has had a huge knock on effect over two rooms... after 2 weeks of spending my evenings working hard at it I have achieved much but with still more to go. So this sketch tonight, while watching a fantastic game of cricket (nice to see an Australia win this summer for a change!), was a great way to celebrate getting in control of my over-abundance of books but also a reminder of the deep dark corners that still need work. BTW 1 - on the left is an abstract plan(ie. not showing the furniture) of the two rooms under review (at the moment!) and what I still need to do BTW 2 - these two shelves represent less than a third of my books/ magazines. (hmmmm, I don't know what to do with all my architecture magazines - I have 11 years of British AR all in a row in order... I can't throw them out can I?) BTW 3 - I saw an image this week of someone who sorts her books by the colour on the spine(via Designsponge?) It looked stunning so I thought I would try it for one shelf. A lot of fun but I prefer to sort by subject. BTW 4 - the short shelves in the middle are for my sketchbooks. Needed some sorting to fit all my sketchbooks from last year in there and I only have room for 4 more... so there will be another bookshelf crisis later in the year. Ok... time to get ready for tomorrows big sketchcrawl... we are meeting at Manly Beach!!!
