Joke Title: Actual Rules for Teachers (circa 1915)

1. You will not marry during the term of your contract. (Those single old teacher were MUCH meaner)

2. You are not to keep company with men. (May get ideas of marriage)

3. You must be home between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. unless attending a school function. (This is for all those emergency teacher meetings on how to be meaner)

4. Your dresses must be not be any shorter than two inches above the ankle. (Wait!! We don't want to see your ankles either!)

5. You may not travel beyond the city limits unless you have the permission of the chairman of the (school) board. (Maybe the teachers were all on parole?)

6. You may not ride in a carriage or automobile with any man unless he is your father or brother. (Goes back to the marriage thing)

7. You may not dress in bright colors. (Someone may see you!)

8. You may under no circumstances dye your hair. (We like gray hair on our teachers)

9. You must wear at least two petticoats. (Three if it's the second Friday of the month, or a full moon!)

10. You may not loiter downtown in ice cream stores. (We don't want you hanging around THOSE kinds of places! What would the children think??)
