THE QJFTON PUBLIC
Lynn Squires, lecturer and psychol-
ogist, addressed the student body in
chapel Tuesday morning on the sub-
ject “Success.” To all who know Lynn
Squires it is unnecessary to say that
the address was a good one and that
all enjoyed it immensely. Mr. Squires
conducted a series of lectures in the
city auditorium two years ago and is
considered one of the finest speakers
who has ever been in Clifton. At the
request of his hundreds of friends
here he is delivering a series of lec-
tures at the city hall this week. We
are always glad to have Mr. Squires
with us as his lectures are vital and
interesting and because he has a gen-
uine interest in boys and girls. ™l____, ...____

P. T. A. NOTES
In the National Parent-Teacher
Magazine we find the following:
“The purpose of the Parent-Teach-
Is not to raise children easier, but
to raise them better.
Js not to make money, but to
lives. M 1 * - s
Is not to criticize the home, but to
raise its standards.
Is not to ignore bad schools, but to
secure good ones.
Is not to operate in schools, but to
eo-oparate with them.
Is not to find fault, but to find
la not to make every child a prodigy
but to give Kim a chance."
In accordance with the adage “It
is better to prevent than to cure,"
the P. T. A. is thia week sponsoring
port of her findings will appear in
next week's Record. -Pub, Com.
