“Mirrors of our times” might well describe the comics. From this assumption Mr. Kessel, teacher in the Chicago Public Schools, has made his study of the assumptions revealed in newspaper comics and categorized them under the headings of: race and nationality, morality and ethics, government and politics, edication, and socio-economics. “Assumptions may not in themselves be bad; everyone makes assumptions, but it is important that we help children to recognize assumptions when they are made and to think about them critically.”
