Apologies for the chopped-off image below but my scanner is only A4 size. However you get the jist of it – or do you? I’m not sure I do?! The publication is called ‘The Young Teacher and Emergency trainee’ and the photo features a young girl in a striking halter-top and shorts one-piece standing in a field holding a pile of hay and a pitchfork. Is it something to do with ‘make hay while the sun shines’? I wouldn’t have thought so but who knows! There is no reference within the journal to the photo on the front page and I’m at a total loss as to how it relates to the articles about the Burnham salary recommendations for teachers in 1947.
The journal also has a black&white movie still of Kathryn Grayson, the actress and operatic singer, beside an article about the use of films in the classroom. I would imagine the article is referring more to educational films but a photo of a movie star would certainly have been more eye-catching. Maybe that’s what the front cover is about – appealing to the new generation of teachers in the late 1940s.
