THE SCHOOLHOUSE FLAG
DANIEL M. HENDERSON
I watch, within the school yard,
The wee folks romp and race;
I see the alien face;
O’erseas each other slay,
Their children's children play.
I put these to the test: “Whose flag
Streams out from yonder pole?” “It's ours! Old Glory'!” every breed
Gives answer, heart and soul!
Rebuke to those who'd see
Menace to liberty.
These are Tomorrow's men; their lives
We for the Flag engage,
Are common heritage.
That through "Old Glory" run,
-Ladies' Home Journal.
HOW I DECORATE MY CLASS ROOM
LEO M. HOGAN
PUBLIC SCHOOL 19, MANHATTAN Materials
1. Wash for class room plaster: "Moresco,” 40 cents a box enough for an ordinary size class room, any shade.
. 2. Burlap for walls: get old bags and dye them. Then iron them out. 3. Paint and stain: on the supply list. 4. Picture frames: supply list.
5. Pictures: magazines, calendars which the children bring and from the supply list.
6. Flags: supply list.
My school is a very old building and as the holes in the walls became larger from falling plaster, the boys decided to make the room more attractive. With 5 cents worth of plaster we filled up the holes and painted the walls from the top of the blackboards to the ceiling with white “Moresco," which brightened up the room a great deal as it has a northern exposure and the light is very poor because of high buildings across the street. We dyed the burlap green, ironed it and tacked it on the vacant wall spaces around the room beginning parallel with the bottom of the blackboards and ending at the top.
The boys made flat moulding 2 inches wide out of one half inch basswood, stained it and placed it all around the room covering the space where the burlap and “Moresco" covering meet. All this cost the teacher 45 cents and as the boys wished to pay for it, I allowed them to buy a picture instead. They selected “The Horse Fair” and as it costs $1.59 they pooled their funds and made up the money. To show how much I thought of their very fine class spirit I gave them $1.59 to get another one and they came back with “Aurora,” because one boy said it had a horse in it.
Now that the walls looked fairly well and we had two good pictures, the boys wanted more. I did not want the boys to spend their money as each one has a bank-book which I encourage them to use and save for themselves. So we all hunted around. On the supply list we found mission frames in two sizes with adjustable backs. We got four of these and we change the pictures from time to time.
At the beginning of the war a number of steamship lines discarded their framed advertisements of German vessels. So the boys brought in the glass and frames and we scraped and stained them. I only keep the same pictures as long as the boys like to look at them. This year we are having for a center of interest New York City history and its relationship to the allied countries. Our present pictures and where they came from may help some of th chers.
“Joan of Arc" (French). Supply list, 1913.
“Fall of New Amsterdam" (N. Y. City). Ladies' Home Journal, Oct. 1917.

“The Horse Fair.” Gift of class.
. These are all large pictures and when mounted can be placed in the frames, on the supply list. The four pictures from the Ladies' Home Journal are very fine and colored.
We have six small flags (on supply list) which we hang over the pictures representing countries that have contributed to the history of America.
