The following day, after waking up at noon, I strolled downstairs and carefully, but deliberately, removed the now cold pizza from the ziplock. This is the point in my story where I explain to you why cold pizza is better. But first, I must make clear one small detail. I am not saying cold pizza is better than freshly cooked, oven hot, pizza, because to think that is actually punishable by death in Italy and in any country where Italians reside AKA, anywhere.

What I am saying is cold pizza is much better than reheating the pizza. Once it has gone cold, leave it cold, and eat it. What little money we have generally goes towards things like shampoo I hope , toothpaste please and soda. So when you finally find that special someone two days into freshman year or four weeks into senior year, this is your chance to come forward my secret admirers!

Take Kimball to-go and have a picnic. Pick some flowers from the side of the road. I am NOT advocating stealing from the beautiful landscaping of Physical Plant: They work way too hard for us to mess that up. Make us feel special. Go get your meal swipe combo in lower and eat your sandwich on the Hart Lawn with a nice view of campus, or at the tables in Memorial Plaza with the fountain in the background. It was an hour-long art-infused concert filled with hundreds of background actors, an entire orchestra, and even a full-bodied burlap outfit.

Most importantly, Kanye refrained from playing any other song from his catalog, and wanted the focus of the show to be solely directed towards his fourth studio album, and away from any other material that might be deemed more popular. As arrogant and pretentious as that may sound coming from a nineteen-year old college student who got a B- in middle school chorus class and was mediocre at best.

Critics and fans alike were both confused and disappointed that. These are all legitimate. Mayberry established herself as one of the best lyricists around on Bones, and she more than maintains her standing throughout Every Open Eye as she sings of the trials and tribulations of relationships. Every Open Eye does have some differences from Bones, even though they are composed of largely the same ingredients. It does not have the same jittery and kinetic energy that suffused the synths, pitched vocal samples, and beats in Bones, making it play more as a pop album than an alternative pop one — albeit a slightly weird one.

College students are always on the cusp of the newest social media trends. At Holy Cross, after checking multiple social media accounts daily such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook , students are now regularly checking Chin Up! Saltarelli says that he and his co-founder, John Benenati of Columbia Universtiy, were inspired to create the app in response to seeing so much negativity in existing social media apps. My family and I gave him a cupcake as his special treat, and we watched and laughed in joy as he scarfed it down at the kitchen table.

My dog Bailey is a West Hyland Terrier who started out as the runt of the litter, but ended up being a miracle. He has been there as a source of hope and light almost my entire life. My family constantly refers to him as the Eveready Bunny as he hops around with a lack of knowledge that he is no longer a youth, but over the past few weeks his age has begun to catch up with him.

Dogs are known for their unwavering loyalty, and their unquestionable devotion to those who show them love. Bailey has in no way failed to live up to these expectations. Since then he has grown up with my siblings and I, being there for the most important moments of our lives, from communions to birthdays to graduations. I remember countless attempts to teach him tricks, which were always unsuccessful, but he remained an extremely smart and well-behaved dog. Every night he. As the days go by, with any day holding the unfortunate possibility of being his last, it is more and more apparent the rock that he is for my family.

The comfort he has provided us in times of trouble, the happiness he has granted us in times of sorrow, and the company he has been for us in times of loneliness have been irreplaceable. Just one look into his big brown eyes gives away his desire to give all he has, all of his love, to us. Some ask why dogs mean so much to their owners.

Why are they treated as another member of the family? It is because they become our homes. They become our safe havens. They are the one creature in the world that will never let a person down, but instead lift us up with every step one takes in life. It will be hard to let go when the time comes, but I know that he is using all of his strength to stay with my family for as long as he can. As his legs give out, his resilience shows through, and we will carry him as he has carried us through the years.

I only hope others can experience the love that comes with owning a dog because he has always been there, and for that I will continue to be there for him until the end, and I will always carry him in my heart. Saltarelli, a computer science major, coded the app himself, even taking extra courses over the summer. As the iOS developer, he recreated Chin Up! Saltarelli concluded that Holy Cross has been an excellent foundation for this new endeavor. Students on campus have been supportive of the app and actively use it to interact anonymously with peers.

The Worcester Lunatic Asylum has now been closed for over 20 years, but it has undergone numerous name changes as the mental health field has advanced. Located just beyond The Flying Rhino down on Shrewsbury Street, it was the first public asylum in Massachusetts, founded in , and in its heyday, right around , it supposedly housed thousands of patients. The Worcester Asylum, today, is rumored to be haunted. By that time, due to much reform in the mental health field thankfully!

To this day, it has not been rebuilt. Much of the old gothic structure was torn down in , leaving few buildings standing in its place, including its once infamous clock tower. The Asylum once was a sprawling structure with two wings to divide male and female patients with the central clock tower for administration. The magnificent building is said to have attracted the. And why not? He did visit Worcester. Visitors have reported hearing footsteps, disembodied voices, and plenty of uneasy feelings to go around.

The more wild reports believe the patients of the old Asylum still have never left. Schumer has charmed most of America by unapologetically being herself: uncensored and hilariously blunt. This is not to say hat Schumer is new to the comedy scene, her own show started in , but her long overdue recognition has quickly exalted her to A-List stardom.

She charmed the audience with her ability to make fun of herself and her encouragement for others to do the same. The kind of friend she drunkenly eats cake with and tells her deepest secrets to. I would be embarrassed to admit to my own fan-girlness if not for having witnessed this behavior from just about every girl I know. I appreciate that Schumer admits to not having herself together all the time and that she is successful in spite of this.

She holds up no pretense of perfection, and we love her all the more for it. At times, her standup is infamously crude and sexual but this claim of her own sexuality empowers her female fans. Based on the recent outpouring of love for the star, I expect to see many more projects from her in the near future. Thanks for being you, Amy. The lollipop, of course, was the highly anticipated, adrenaline-teased potential of reading something other than Paradise Lost, something contemporary and exciting, and getting credit towards my undergraduate degree.

The needle Guilty, because the absolute evisceration. But pleasure because I cannot say I have ever encountered a book that so viscerally touched me. He calls to question just what it means to be human in a world where grown men can be reduced to nervous breakdowns over the paper quality of their business cards. But contrasted against the outrageously potent images of violence as Patrick struggles to understand his own identity in a world rampant with AIDS, homelessness, and apathy, suddenly it all makes.

Patrick is a victim of a society that no longer cares. Of course, it would be wild to try and make that statement against some of Ellis more adamant critics, especially those feminist advocates who call American Psycho a handbook of misogyny. The brutality he commits against his fellow man and woman as his personality splinters and disintegrated depicts the haunting abscess of meaninglessness in an overly commercialized society.

As society continues to hurtle into unchecked commercialization, to the point of selling marital affairs online, one is forced to ask: where the hell has the humanity gone? Patrick Bateman may have brought on death threats for Ellis, he may have even given me sickening images that I will never be able to forget, but never before has a portrait of humanity in crisis been so profoundly portrayed. In short, you must read this book.

This is a collection for lovers of fairy tale. It is spiked with folklore and pop-culture references. Witches, ghosts, zombies, and aliens exist and waltz seamlessly in and out of the lives of everyday people. Link approaches the hardhitting with an element of whimsy, in a way, tricking you into reading literature.

These stories are funny, strange, and have a kind of power. Calvary is one of such films. Sporting a thick reddishbrown mane and sounding his still thicker Irish brogue, Gleeson covers a great range of emotions, as convincing in his attempts to mold the children of Sligo into proper men and women as he is in sardonically issuing back-handed compliments and even some more blatant insults.

While the film is a clever black-comedy with a plethora of lines that are as obscene as they are hilarious, there is also a cloud of seriousness and deep-meaning that hangs over the few players in this small-budgeted indie flick. For every jest is followed closely with an exasperated sigh, telling of the emotionally crippling environment in which these people live. Where questionable jokes about child molestation are made frequently, there is a great deal of it happening. Where people often contemplate taking their own lives, jokes about such things are tossed around haplessly.

I suppose this is fairly insightful, as people do seem to make light of the real problems they face in order to cope. James as a pragmatist, a genuine caretaker of the troubled, pleases me especially. I enjoyed watching him face difficult questions and giving honest responses, not being afraid to discuss the benefits of having a sex-life a nonmarital one, that is with a man. The fact that Fr. I highly recommend Calvary to the right person. I think that this film will upset and straight-up offend a great deal of people, but all the same, I think an equally great deal of people will find it extremely comical and also quite emotional.

This is an expertly crafted film, any of its perceived faults are intentional and will be seen as the meat of the film by others, and most of all, those who dislike this film will likely shortly forget about it, but for those who enjoy, it will stick with them. If not for a reason other than this, you should check out Calvary. With his luscious golden hair and somber demeanor, Trump is receiving overwhelming support at Holy Cross. With attainable and upbeat commentary, like the proposal to build a giant wall to separate the United States from Mexico and unequivocal right to bear arms, Trump has been sweeping the nation without any media retaliation or public hatred.

The biggest controversy that Holy Cross students have to face in the presidential race is between Hillary Clinton and Trump. Both candidates, while wealthier than the entirety of New York City, have appealed to many poor families by being extremely accessible. Because he. No one seems to have noticed that no Holy Cross students, or Trump, are actually truckers. Last, but certainly not least of the Trump storm on campus, the Democratic student population has taken to a new party game.

The political world was taken by shock as people wondered what could have caused such a sudden departure. While others may have held it. The Tea Party congressmen that occupied his caucus made the job nearly impossible, requiring him to pound the gavel as if it were a war hammer just to keep order. At that time Boehner faced levels of intransigence that are rarely seen even in this partisan era.

He faced off against a caucus that would rather see the world wreaked by economic depression resulting from a default on public debt than allow the Affordable Care Act to stand. In order to avert disaster Boehner did the only thing. Crisis was averted, but at a cost that would soon become all too apparent. Boehner started to feel a pain in his right wrist. When it became so great that he could no longer pop an oxycodone and get on with his duties, he sought medical attention. He soon learned that he had developed Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

The doctor told him that the only way to stop the spread of the Carpal Tunnel was for him to retire the Speakership, and soon. Boehner planned to retire at the end of that term, however, fate intervened. As he struggled on his condition became worse and worse. This summer his Carpal Tunnel reached stage four, and he came in danger of losing his arm. But when Pope Francis visited Congress, Boehner, a lifelong Catholic, got the chance to hold a personal conversation with the Holy Father.

In this meeting the Pope told Boehner that he had been an exemplar of public service and gave him his blessing to step down. With Boehner soon to retire, there is much speculation as to. Kevin McCarthy of California, the current majority leader, is favored to take on the role of Speaker, but he will face the same problems Boehner did.

Whatever the future holds, we salute John Boehner, a public servant who always did what his country needed from him, no matter the cost. There will also be a couple of additional classes to prepare new drivers for life on the road and will be mandatory every three years for registered drivers. Road rage class, touching upon proper vocabulary for cursing among other things, will allow angry drivers to accurately communicate with other, probably angry, drivers to iron out differences while on the road.

There will also be a course on offensive and, con-. The offensive driving course will help drivers skillfully execute bold power moves, while the defensive course will help compensate for the abundance of aggressive drivers on the road. A study out of the University of Massachusetts found that these improvements in driving instruction will likely help decrease multi-vehicle accidents.

There are a high percentage of accidents due to the absence of blinkers and sudden swerving. The tourism industry in Massachusetts is also expected to improve due to these new licensing conditions. Augustus, the Mayor of Worcester, believes that the increase in driving age along with the offensive driving course will allow the roads to become a safer place for people who like to. The Worcester Police Department, however, has spoken out against the new legislation.

It is predicted that there will be less accidents, and therefore police will have less to report. Hank Hartford, the Chief, thinks that in order to compensate for the lack of action, he might make the department crack down more on speeding. For an idle moment enjoy the task of seeing how many ideas it contains which are the familiar ideas of children, and how they all have been " made different. Red Riding Hood was a dear Uttle girl who set out to take a basket to her grandmother. But in the wood, after she had been gathering a nose- gay and chasing butterflies, " just as I might do," any chUd might say, she met a wolf!

And what child's ears would not rise with curiosity? That was usual enough; but everything was different, and the charm is in giving the child a real surprise at every step. The house was not like an ordinary house; it was in the wood, and more like a play-house than a real one. There was a room, but not much in it; a table, but there was not on it what is on your table — only three bowls. What they contained was usual, but unusually one bowl of porridge was big and hot, one was less big and cold, and one was little and just right.

Upstairs the bedroom was usual, but the beds were unusual when Goldilocks lay upon them. The Bears themselves were usual, but their talk and action was a dehghtfxil mixture of the surprising and the comical. Perhaps this love of surprise accounts for the perfect leap of. Certainly the theme of a Ught in the dis- tance has a charm for children as it must have had for man long ago.

Brothers Grimm fairy stories - Rumpelstiltskin

Sense impression. Good things to eat, beautiful flowers, jewels, the beauties of sight, color, and sound, of odor and of taste, all gratify a child's craving for sense impression. This, in its height, is the charm of the Arabian Nights. But in a lesser degree it appears in aU fairy tales. Cinderella's beautiful gowns at the ball and the fine supper stimulate the sense of color, beauty, and taste. The sugar-panes and gingerbread roof of the Witch's House, in Hansel and Grethel, stir the child's kindred taste for sweets and cook- ies.

The Gingerbread Boy, with his chocolate jacket, his cinnamon buttons, currant eyes, rose-sugar mouth, orange-candy cap, and gingerbread shoes, makes the same strong sense appeal. The beaviifvl. Closely related to this love of the material is the sense of the beautiful. Pleasures of the eye and ear, of the imag- ination and memory, are those most easily objecti- fied, and form the groimdwork on which all higher beauty rests.

The Bedtime Story Book: Classic Tales From Childhood

The green of the spring, the odor of Red Biding Hood's flowers, the splendor of the Prince's ball in Cinderella — these when perceived distinctly are intelligible, and when perceived delightfully are beautiful. Language is a kind of music, too; the mode of speaking, the sound of letters, the inflection of the voice — all are elements of beauty.

But this mate- rial beauty is tied up in close association with things " eye hath not seen nor ear heard," the moral beauty of the good and the message of the true. The indus- try of the little Elves reflects the worth of honest effort of the two aged peasants, and the dance of the Goat and seven Kids reflects the triumph of mother wit and the sharpness of love. The good, the true, and the beautiful are inseparably linked in' the tale, just as they forever grow together in the life of the child. The tales differ largely in the element of beauty they present.

Little Two-Eyes stands out as one containing a large element of beauty, and Oeyvind and Marit represents in an ideal way the possible union of the good, the true, and the beautiful. This union of the good, the true, and the beautiful has been expressed by an old Persian legend: " In the midst of the light is the beautiful, in the midst of the beautiful is the good, in the midst of the good is God, the Eternal One.

The spirit of wonder, like a will-o'-the-wisp, leads on through a fairy tale, en- ticing the child who follows, knowing that something will happen, and wondering what. When magic comes in he is gratified because some one becomes master of the universe — Cinderella, when she plants the hazel bough, and later goes to the wishing-tree; the fairy godmother, when with her wand she transforms a pumpkin to a gilded coach and six mice to beauti- ful gray horses; Little Two-Eyes, when she says, — Little kid, bleat, I wish to eat! This is a form of curiosity.

In the old tale, as the wood was the place outside the usual habi- tation, naturally it was the place where things hap- pened. This adventure the little child loves for its own sake. Later, when he is about eleven or twelve, he loves it for its motive. This love of adventiu-e is part of the charm of Red Riding Hood, of the Three Bears, of the Three Pigs, or of any good tale you might mention. The child Kkes the fairy tale to tell him of some one who succeeds.

He admires the Uttle pig Speckle who outwitted the Wolf in getting to the field of tiu-nips first, or in going to the apple tree at Merry- Garden, or to the fair at Shanklin; who built his house of brick which would defy assault; and whose clever- ness ended the Wolf's Ufe. This observation of suc- cess teaches the child to admire masterliness, to get the motto. Age quod agis, stamped into his child life from the beginning. It influences character to follow such conduct as that of the.

Little Red Hen, who took a grain of wheat, — her little mite, — who planted it, reaped it, made it into bread, and then ate it; who, in spite of the Goose and the Duck, secured to herself the reward of her labors. Akin to his love of running, skipping, and jumping, to his enjoyment in making things go and in seeing others make things go, is the child's desire for action in his fairy tales; and this is just another way of saying he wants his fairy tales to parallel life.

Sharp, a lady of ninety, edited by John Ruskin, who added the third, fourth, eighth, and ninth stanzas, and illustrated by Kate Greenaway — has this pleas- ing trait of action to a unique degree. The child loves a joke, and the tale that is humorous is his special delight.

Humor is the source of pleasure in Billy Bobtail, where the number of animals and the noises they make fill the tale with hilarious fun. There is most pleasing humor in Lambi- Mn. Here the reckless hero frolicked about on his little tottery legs. Where I shall fatter grow. Then you can eat me so! Later, on returning, when the animals asked, " Have you seen Lambikin?

On, little Drumikin! Tum-pa, turn-too! Here the child can identify himself with the Dog and thereby join in the sport which the Dog makes at the Snow Man's expense, just as if he himself were en- lightening the Snow Man about the Sun, the Moon, and the Stove. There is most deUghtful humor in The Cat and the Mouse in Partnership, where the Cat has the face to play upon the creduUty of the poor house- keeper Mouse, who always " stayed at home and did not go out into the daytime.

Poetic justice. Emotional satisfaction and moral satisfaction based on emotional instinct appeal to the child. He pities the plight of the animals in the Bremen Town Musicians, and he wants them to find a refuge, a safe home. He is glad that the robbers are chased out, his sense of right and wrong is satisfied.

Poetic justice suits him. This is one reason why fairy tales make a more definite impression often than life — be- cause in the tale the retribution follows the act so swiftly that the child may see it, while in life " the mills of the gods grind slowly," and even the adult who looks cannot see them grind. The imaginative. Fairy tales satisfy the activity of the child's imagination and stimulate his fancy. Some beautiful spring day, perhaps, after he has en- joyed an excursion to a field or meadow or wood, he will want to follow Andersen's Thumbelina in her travels.

He will follow her as she floats on a lily pad, escapes a frog of a husband, rides on a butterfly, lives in the house of a field-mouse, escapes a mole of a hus- band, and then rides on the back of a friendly swallow to reach the south land and to become queen of the flowers. Here there is much play of fancy.

But even when the episodes are homely and the situations familiar, as in Little Red Hen, the act of seeing them as distinct images and of following them with interest feeds the imagination. For while the elements are familiar, the combination is unusual; and this nour- ishes the child's ability to remove from the usual situa- tion, which is the essential element in all originality. By entering into the life of the characters and identi- fying himself with them, he develops a large sym- pathy and a sense of power, he gains insight into life, and a care for the interests of the world.

Thus imag- ination grows " in flexibility, in scope, and in sym- pathy, till the life which the individual lives is in- formed with the life of nature and of society," and acquires what Professor John Dewey calls Culture. Very few of the child's fairy tales contain no animals. Southey said of a home: " A house is never perfectly furnished for enjoyment unless there is in it a child rising three years old and a kitten rising six weeks; kitten is in the animal world what a rose- bud is in a garden.

The episode of the hero or heroine and the friendly animal, as we find it retained in Two-Eyes and her little Goat, was probably a folk-lore convention — since dropped — common to the beginning of many of the old tales. It indicates how largely the friendly animal entered into the old stories.

A portrayed of human relations, espedaUy vnth chil- dren. In Cinderella the child is held by the unkind treatment inflicted upon Cinderella by her Stepmother and the two haughty Sisters. In the Three Bears he observes a pic- ture of family life. A little child, on listening to The Three Pigs for the first time, was overwhelmed by one thought and cried out, " And did n't the Mother come home any more? He can do it most readily if the character is a small individual like Red Riding Hood who should obey her mother; or like Goldilocks who must not wander in the wood; or like Henny Penny who went to take a walk and was accosted by, " Where are you going?

The child is interested, too, in the strange people he meets in the fairy tales: the clever little elves who lived in the groves and danced on the grass; the dwarfs who inhabited the earth-rocks and the hills; the trolls who dwelt in the wild pine forest or the rocky spurs, who ate men or porridge, and who fled at the noise of bells; the fairies who pleased with their red caps, green jackets, and sprightly ways; the beautiful fairy godmother who waved her wonderful wand; or those lovely fairy spirits who appeared at the moment when most needed — just as all best friends do — and who could grant, in a twinkUng, the wish that was most desired.

The diminutive. This court was my home. In me he delighted.

atnimolescu.ga By him I was knighted. Did you never hear of Sir Thomas Thumb? Doll i' the Grass contains a tiny chariot made from a silver spoon and drawn by two white mice, and Little Two-Eyes gives a magic table. The child takes keen delight in the fairy ship which could be folded up and put into a pocket, and in the wonderful nut-shell that could bring forth beautiful silver and gold dresses.

The little wagon of Chanticleer and Partlet that took them a trip up to the hill, and the tiny mugs and beds, table and plates, of Snow White's cottage in the wood — such as these all meet the approval of child-nature. The child at first loves sound ; later he loves sound and sense, or meaning. Repeti- tion pleases him because he has limited experience and is glad to come upon something he has known before.

He observes and he wants to compare, but it is a job. Repetition saves him a task and boldly proclaims, " We are the same. Porcupine's; I wish I had a pair of red rubbers like Miss Puddleduck's. Bushy Tail, Miss Puddleduck, and old Mr. Ground Hog, the same petition to sleep all night, " Please, kind Mr. Bushy Tail, may I sleep in your house all night? Repetition here aids the child in following the characters, the story, and its mean- ing. It is a distinct help to unity and to clearness.

The Elephant's Child is an example of how the lit- erary artist has used this element of repetition, and used it so wonderfully that the form is the matter and the tale cannot be told without the artist's words. Rhythm and repetition also make a bodily appeal, they appeal to the child's motor sense and instinc- tively get into his muscles.

This is very evident in Brother Rabbit's Riddle: — De big bird bob en little bird sing; De big bee zoon en little bee sting, De little man lead en big boss foller — Kin you tell wat's good fer a head in a holler? The song in Brother Rabbit and the Little Oirl appeals also to the child's sense of sound: — De jay-bird hunt de sparrer-nes; De bee-martin sail all 'roim'; De squer'l, he holler from de top er de tree, Mr. Mole, he stay in de ground; He hide en he stay twel de dark drap down — Mr.

Mole, he hide in de groun'. The simple and the sincere. The child's taste for the simple and the sincere is one reason for the appeal which Andersen's tales make. In using his stories it is to be remembered that, although Andersen lacked manliness in being sentimental, he preserved the child's point of view and gave his thought in the true niu"sery story's mode of expression. Since real senti- ment places the emphasis on the object which arouses feeling and the sentimental places the emphasis on the feeling, sincerity demands that in using Ander- sen's tales, one lessen the sentimental when it occurs by omitting to give prominence to the feeling.

His speech is characterized by the simplest words and conceptions, an avoidance of the abstract, the use of direct lan- guage, and a naive poetic expression adapted to gen- eral comprehension. He is not to be equaled in child conversations. The world of the fairy tale must be simple like the world Andersen has given us. It must be a world of genuine people and honest occupations in order to form a suitable background for the super- natural. Only fairy tales possessing simplicity are suited to the oldest kindergarten child of five or six years.

To the degree that the child is younger than five years, he should be given fewer and fewer fairy tales. Those given should be largely realistic stories of extreme simplicity. Unity of effect. The little child likes the short tale, for it is a imity he can grasp. If you have ever Us- tened to a child of five spontaneously attempting to tell you a long tale he has not grasped, and have observed how the imits of the tale have become confused in the mind that has not held the central theme, you then realize how harmful it is to give a child too long a story.

Unity demands that there be no heaping up of sensations, but neat, orderly, essential incidents, held together by one central idea. The tale must go to the climax directly. It will be remarkable as well for what it omits as for what it tells. The Norse Doll i' the Grass well illustrates this unity.

Boots set out to find a wife and foimd a charming httle lassie who could spin and weave a shirt in one day, though of course the shirt was tiny. He took her home and then celebrated his wedding with the pleasure of the king. Here one feeling dominates the tale, the Pine Tree was no longer contented. So she wished, first for gold leaves, next for glass leaves, and then for leaves hke those of the oaks and maples.

But the robber who stole her gold leaves, the storm that shat- tered her glass leaves, and the goat that ate her broad green leaves, changed her feeling of discontent, until she wished at last to have back her slender needles, green and fair, and awoke next morning, happy and contented. Fairy tales for little children must avoid certain elements opposed to the interests of the very young child. Temperaments vary and one must be guided by the characteristics of the individual child. This stand- ard would determine what tales should not be given to the child of kindergarten age : — The tale of the vdtch.

The witch is too strange and too fearful for the child who has not learned to dis- tinguish the true from the imaginative. This would move Hansel and Grethel into the second-grade work and Sleeping Beauty preferably into the work of the first grade. The child soon gains sufficient experience so that later the story impresses, not the strangeness. The tale of the dragon. This would eHminate Sieg- fried and the Dragon. A dragon is too fearful a beast and produces terror in the heart of the child. Tales of heroic adventm-e with the sword are not suited to his strength.

He has not yet entered the realm of bold adventiu-e where Perseus and Theseus and Hercules display their powers. The fact that hero-tales abound in deUghtful literature is not adequate reason for crowding the Rhinegold Legends, Wagner Stories, and Tales of King Arthur, into the kindergarten. Their beauty and charm do not make it less criminal to pre- sent to little children such a variety of images as knighthood carries with it. These tales are not suffi- ciently simple for the little child, and must produce a mental confusion and the crudest of returns.

Giant tales. This would omit Jack and the Bean- ttalk. To a child of such sensibiUties the cutting oflF of heads is savage and gruesome and should not be given a chance to impress so prominently. Life cannot be without its strife and struggle, but the Uttle child need not meet everything in life at once. This does not mean that absolutely no giant tale would be used at this time. The tale of Mr. Miacca, in which " Uttle Tommy could n't always be good and one day went round the corner," is a giant tale which could be used with young children because it is full of delight- ful humor.

Because of the simplicity of Tommy's lan- guage and his sweet chUdishness it appeals to the child's desire to identify himself with the character. Tommy is so clever and inventive and his lively sur- prises so brimftil of fun that the final effect is entirely pleasiag. Some tales of transformation. The little child is not pleased but shocked by the transformation of men into animals. A little girl, on looking at an illustra- tion of Little Brother and Sister, remarked, " If my Sister would turn into a fawn I would cry.

A simple tale of transformation, such as The Little Lamb and the Little Fish, in which Gretchen becomes a lamb and Peterkin a little fish, is inter- esting but not horrible, and could be used. So also could a tale such as Grimm's Fundevogel, in which the brother and sister escape the pursuit of the witch by becoming, one a rosebush and the other a rose; later, one a church and the other a steeple; and a third time, one a pond and the other a duck.

In both these tales we have the witch and transformation, but the eflEect contains no horror. The tale of strange animal relations and strange creatures. Tom Tit Tot, which Jacobs considers the most delightful of all fairy tales, is brimful of humor for the older child, but here the tailed man is not suited to the faith and understanding of six years.

Rumpelstiltskin, its parallel, must also be excluded. The HmLse in the Wood, and its Norse parallel. The Two Step-Sisters, are both very beautiful, but are more suited to the second grade. In the kindergarten it is much better to present the tale which empha- sizes goodness, rather than the two just mentioned, which present the good and the bad and show what happens to both.

Besides there is a certain elation re- sulting from the superior reward won by the good child which crowds out any pity for the erring child. Snow White and Rose Red contains the strange dwarf, but it is a tale so full of love and good- ness and home life that in spite of its length it could be used in the first grade.

Unhappy tales. The very Uttle child pities, and its tender heart must be protected from depressing sadness as unrelieved as we find it in The Little Match Girl. The image of suffering impressed on a child, who cannot forget the sight of a cripple for days, is too in- tense to be healthful. The sorrow of the poor is one of the elements of life that even the very little child meets, and it is legitimate that his Uterature should include tales that call for compassion. But in a year or two, when he develops less impressionabihty and more poise, he is better prepared to meet such situa- tions, as he must meet them in life.

The tale of capture. This would ehminate Proser- pine. No more beautiful myth exists than this one of the springtime, but its beauty and its symboUsm do not make it suitable for the kindergarten. It is more suited to the elementary child of the fourth grade. In fact, very few myths of any sort find a legitimate place in the kindergarten, perhaps only a few of the simpler pourquois tales.

It is better to leave the literature as it is and oflEer it later when the child reaches the second grade.

Description

The effect of this tragic end has been realized by Josephine Scribner Gates, who St. It most happily makes the little lame boy who was left in Hamelin when the Piper closed the door of the mountain, the means of the restoration of the other children to their parents. The very long tale. This would omit The Ugly Duckling. The Ugly Duckling is a most artistic tale and one that is very true to life. Its characters are the animals of the barn-yard, the hens and ducks familiar to the little child's experience.

But the theme and emotional interest working out at length through varied scenes, make it much better adapted to the capacities of a third-grade child. This is a fine tale telling how the youngest of three sons succeeded in winning the king's favor and finally the princess and half the kingdom. It is evident that not only the subject- matter but the working out of the long plot are much beyond kindergarten children. The cmnplicaied or the insincere tale. This would ehminate a tale of compHcated structure, such as Grimm's Oolden Bird; and many of the modern faiiy tales, which will be dealt with later on.

The fairy tales mentioned above are all important tales which the child should receive at a later time when he is ready for them. They are mentioned be- cause they all have been suggested for kindergarten use. The whole field of children's literature is largely unclassified and ungraded as yet, and such arrange- ments as we possess show slight respect for standards. There is abundant material for the youngest, and much will be gained by omittiag to give the very young what they will enjoy a httle later, much better and with freshness. In regard to this grading of the classics. Had I twenty girls they should be brought up exactly in this fashion.

But with all due respect to Lamb it must be said that Lamb is not living in this scientific day of discovery of the child's personality and of accurate attention to the child's needs. Because the Odyssey is a great book and will give much to any child does not prove at all that the same child would not be better off by reading it when his interests reach its life. This out- look on the problem would eliminate the necessity of having the classics rewritten from a new moral view- point, which is becoming a custom now-a-days, and which is to be frowned upon, for it deprives the lit- erature of much of its vigor and force.

The old tale will not always be perfect literature; often it wiU be imperfect, especially in form. Yet the tale should be selected with the standards of htera- ture guiding in the estimate of its worth and in the emphasis to be placed upon its content. Such relating of the tale to literary standards would make it quite impossible later in the primary grades when teaching the reading of Three Pigs, to put the main stress on a mere external like the expression of the voice. A study of the story as literature would have centered the attention on the situation, the characters, and the plot.

If the voice is receiving training in music and in the phonics of spelling, then when the reading of the tale is undertaken it wiU be a willing servant to the mind which is concentrating on the reaJity, and will express what the thought compels. The fairy tale first must be a classic in reality even if it lacks the crowning touch of perfect form given through the re-treatment of a literary artist. In Rey- nard the Fox we have an exact example of the folk- tale that has been elevated into literature. But this was possible only because the tales originally pos- sessed the qualities of a true classic.

Any fairy tale' which answers to the test of a real classic must, like these, show itself to contain for the child a permanent enrichment of the mind. Fairy tales must have certain qualities which be- long to all literature as a fine art, whether it is the literature of knowledge or the literature of power. Literature is not the book nor is it life; but literature is the sense of life, whose artist is the author, and the medium he uses is words, language. It is good art when his sense of life is truth, and fine art when there is beauty in that truth. The one essential beauty of literature is in its essence and does not depend upon any decoration.

As words are the medium, literature will distinguish carefully among them and use them as the painter, for particular lights and shades. Ac- cording to Pater literature must have two quahties. Literature will have mind when it has that architectural sense of structure which fore- sees the end in the beginning and keeps all the parts related in a harmonious unity.

It will have soid when it has that " vagrant sympathy " which makes it come home to us and which makes it suggest what it does not say. Test the Tale of Cinderella by this stand- ard. And its " vagrant sympathy" is quite definite enough to reach a maid of five, who re- marked: " If I 'd have been Cinderella, I would n't have helped those ugly sisters, would you? These particular hterary marks which differentiate the lit- erary tale from the ordinary prose tale have been pointed out by Professor Winchester in his Principles of Literary Criticism.

They apply to the old tale of primitive peoples just as well as to the modem tale of to-day. This ap- peal to the emotions is its unique distinguishing lit- erary trait. Literature appeals, not to the personal emotions but to the universal ones. For this reason, through literature the child may come in time to de- velop a power of universal sympathy, which is not the least value literature has to bestow upon him, for this sympathy will become a benediction to all those with whom he may have to deal.

In order that emotion in the tales may be literary — make a permanent appeal — according to Professor Win- chester's standards, it must have justness given by a deep and worthy cause; vividness so that it may enlarge and thrill; a certain steadiness produced by everything in the tale contributing to the main emo- tion; a variety resulting from contrasts of character; and a high quality obtained through its sympathy with life and its relation to the conduct of life, so that the feeling for the material beauty of mere sights and sounds is closely related to the deepest suggestions of moral beauty.

The best literary tales will possess emotion having all five characteristics. Many tales will exhibit one or more of these traits conspicuously. No tale that is literature will be found which does not lay claim to some one of these qualities which appeal to the broadly human emotions. The Town Musicians of Bremen ex- hibits vivid emotion, for all four characters are in the same desperate danger of losing life, all four unite to save it, and to find a home. Andersen's Steadfast Tin Soldier is a good example of steadiness of emotion, as it maintains throughout its message of courage.

The Tin Soldier remained steadfast, whether on the table just escaped from the toy-box, or in the street after a frightful fall from the window, or spinning in a paper boat that bobbed, or saihng imder the crossing, or lying at full length within the fish that swallowed him, or at last melting in the full glare of the hearth fire. It is a very good example, too, of vividness of emo- tion. The Little Elves illustrates steadiness of emo- tion, it is pervaded by the one feeling, that industry deserves reward.

The French tale, DrakesbiU, is es- pecially delightful and humorous because " Bill Drake " perseveres in his happy, fresh vivacity, at the end of every rebuff of fortune, and triumphantly continues his one cry of, "Quack, quack, quack! When shall I get my money back? All the great fairy tales appeal to emotion of a high moral quality and it is this which is the source of their universal appeal.

It is this high moral quality of the spiritual truth, which is the center of the tale's unity, holding together all the parts under one emotional theme. This is the source of the perennial freshness of the old tale; for while the immortal truth it presents is old, the person- ality of the child that meets it is new. For the child, the tale is new because he discovers in it a bit of him- self he had not known before, and it retains for him a lasting charm so that he longs to hear it again and again.

The beauty of truth, the reward of goodness, and the duty of fairness, give a high emotional qual- ity to Little Two-Eyes; and Sleeping Beauty illustrates the blighting power of hatred to impose a curse and the saving power of love to overcome the works of hatred. Considering folk-tales from the standpoint of emo- tion, if asked to suggest what author's work would rank in the same class, one is rather surprised to find, that for high moral quality, variety, and worthy cause, the author who comes to mind is none other than Shakespeare.

Perhaps, with all due respect to literature's idol, one might even venture to question which receives honor by the comparison, Shakespeare or the folk-tales? The Uttle child is open to emotional appeal, his heart is tender and he is impressionable. If he feels with the characters in his tales he develops a power of emotion. In Andersen's Snow Man it is hard to say which seems more human to him or which makes more of an emotional appeal, the Snow Man or the Dog. He is sorry for the poor Shoemaker in The Little Elves, glad when he grows rich, delighted for the Elves when they receive their presents, and satisfied at the happy end.

Since Hterature depicts life and character in order to awaken noble emotions, it fol- lows that one must omit to present what awakens repulsive or degrading emotions. And it is for this reason, as has been mentioned under the heading " Ele- ments to be avoided," that the tales of the witch and the dragon must be excluded, not for all time, but for the earliest years, when they awaken horror.

Through fairy tales we have seen that the emo- tional power of the child is strengthened. This has been effected because, in the tale just as truly as in life, action is presented in real situations; and back of every action is the motive force of emotion. This cumulative power of emotion, secured by the child through the handling of tales, will serve daily a pre- sent need. It will be the dynamic force which he will require for anything he wishes to accomphsh in life. It will make a difference in his speech; he will not have to say so much, for what he does say will produce re- sults.

This growing power of emotion will carry over into feelings of relation and thus lead to judgment of values. This evaluation is the basis of reasoning and answers to the child's daily call to think from causes to consequences. This increasing power of emotion develops into the sesthetic sensibilites and so results in a cultivation of taste and an understanding of life. Emotion therefore leads to appreciation, which, when logically developed, becomes expression. Fairy tales, thus, in conducting emotional capacity through this varied growth and toward this high development, hold an educational value of no mean order.

Emo- tion can be aroused by showing the objects which ex- cite emotion. Imagination is this power to see and show things in the concrete. Curry says, " When- ever the soul comes vividly in contact with any fact, truth, etc. It is the faculty that can create ideal presence.

Of the Imaginaiive Faculty, would distinguish three classes of the imagination: — a The associative imagination. This is the power of imagination by which we call into association other images that tend to produce the same or aUied emo- tion. When this association has no common ground of emotion it is fancy. The test for the associative imagination, which has the power to combine ideas to form a conception, is that if one part is taken away the rest of the combination goes to pieces. It requires intense simplicity, harmony, and absolute truth.

Andersen's Fairy Tales are a perfect driU for the asso- ciative imagination. Literature parallels life and what is presented calls up individual experience. Any child will feel a thrill of kinship with the experiences given in The Tin Soldier — a little boy's birthday, the opening of the box, the counting of the soldiers, and the setting of them upon the table.

And because here Andersen has transformed this usual experience with a vivacity and charm, the tale ranks high as a tale of imagination. Little Ida's Flowers and Thumbelina are tales of pure fancy. This power of im- agination shows the real character of a thing and de- scribes it by its spiritual effects. It sees the heart and inner nature of things. Through fancy the child can- not reach this central viewpoint since fancy deals only with externals.

Through the exercise of this power the chUd develops insight, intuition, and a per- ception of spiritual values, and gains a love of the ideal truth and a perpetual thirst for it. He develops genuineness, one of the chief virtues of originality. He will tend not to have respect for sayings or opinions but will seek the truth, be governed by its laws, and hold a passion for perfection.

This power of imagina- tion makes of him a continual seeker, " a pilgrim upon earth. This is that special phase of the imagination that gives to abstract beiag consistency and reality. Through the contem- plative imagination the child gains the significance of meaning and discerns the true message of the tale.

When merely external resemblance is caught, when the likeness is forced, and the image created believed in, we have fancy. The contemplative imagination interprets the past in the tale and relates it to the future. It shows what is felt by indicating some aspect of what is seen. The labor of the spirit seeking the full message of the fairy tale, often is rewarded with bits of philo- sophy which are the essence of its personal wisdom. Even the Woman Suffragists of our day might be amused to find, in The Cat and Mouse in Partnership, this side-light on one of their claims.

The Mouse said she did not know what to think of the curious names. To which the Cat replied, " That is be- cause you always stay at home. You sit here in your soft gray coat and long tail, and these foolish whims get into your head. It is always the way when one does not go out in the daytime. This is the case in Andersen's The Emperor's New Suit, a gem in story-telling art — more suited to the second grade — where the purpose of the story is veiled, and the satire or humor is conveyed through a very telling word or two.

Pipes" could not be repaired or replaced. Pipes was one example of equipment that predated the new facility because some therapy equipment was moved from the department's former location on the old hospital campus.

    The issue with Mr. Pipes is what started discussions about the need to update the facility, which remains the largest freestanding pediatric rehab facility in the region. She said all areas received a face lift with new flooring, paint, color scheme, furniture and added storage. The area makes up most of the south side of the Rehab Center at Chester Boulevard. The rehab complex was the first major step in Reid Health's relocation more than 10 years ago from its former location at Chester Boulevard.
