Hall is working out a list of erood speakers whom he hopes to hr-ino- to th institute to take chartre of the sectional meetin'gs in which . matters relative to the work of rural grade and high school teachers will be discussed The joint county institute is a new undertaking in this county, it having been the custom formerly to hold separate township meetings. It has been decided that a trial will be made of joining all the townships into one institute and thus standardizing and improving the type of iistruction in many cases. CHRISTMAS SEALS WILL SAVE LIVES Funds Secured Through Sale Will Go Long Ways Toward Eliminating Tuberculosis The Indiana Tuberculosis Associa tion, which has in charge the 191 sale of Double-Barred Christmas Seals throughout the ninety-two counties of Indiana, in co-peration with the local anti-tuberculosis associations estimate that based on conclusions, reached as a result of the famouh Framingham demonstration, $2 per capita per annum will buy excellent health protectior for a community, and will go a long way towards eliminating tuberculosis, if the work is extended over a sufficent length of time." The statement corttinued: 'Taking the population of the United States as a whole, and extending) the payment over ten years, this would mean an investment of approximately two billion dollars. In other word's, by paying that amount of money less than the cost of one issue of Liberty BorJds during the war we could save thousands of lives in America, and a steady drain on the population of a million active cases of tuberculosis. "If tuberculosis could be entirely conquered, the actual saving in dollars and cents, after deductirtg the investment of two billion, could be placed at 23 billion dollars. We also would add on an average 2 1-2 years of life to every American citizen. Thus, money spent in anu-tuoercuiosis work is arf investment on which re . a a 1 ? turns are ten-fold. And the 6hare of the individual American in such a program if everybody would buy his or her share of the Christmas Seals-would be but a year, or less than 4 cents a week. . ' I . j , : so that in the five contests played the Black and Gold athletes have piled up a total of 208 points while the oppon ents have been able to register but 70. To no individual on the Fairmount team goes the credit for this string of Tictories. It is the team work that has bror-M the local quintet to the front and that is the nice thing about it. Any visiting team will find a com- Wnntion of five men that work with almost machir.'e like precision, with splendid spirit, snappy passes and ac- curate basket shooting. And it will funeral tomorrow. HALLIE HAMILTON COACHING FOOTBALL.

Billy Webb of Terre Haute will referee the contest. The lineup at the start of the contest Friday will consist as usual of Payne 1 and Hollingsworth as forwards.
