Yule Gifts To Teacher

W)-The Bethlehem school board

Christmas gifts for the teacher
too much competition between
little Johnny and his classmates.

board members decided the com

ing among school children had
become too expensive for smal
ler Income families to bear.
Not that an occasional apple or
cookie for the teacher is ob
jectionable, Hedge said. It's just
that children who can't afford
expensive Christmas presents
sometimes have given way to a
feeling of frustration.
