Mrs. Mary Alderton, teacher, is in charge of the project. The "nutrition express," as the train has" been christened, was first plac.ed on display .in the classroom. Later It >was moved to the school cafetria. On Thursday it was placed on permanent display in'the health center at the school. Miss MarRarw Morrissey, • R. N., public health nurse for the Cresaptown district, who aided in supply- Ing study material on nutrition, said the exhibit is available for display at lay health meetings, prenatal clinics, infant hygiene clinics and in nutrition work. Booklets on foons necessary for • good nourishment were provided by the Health Department and the Board of Education. Allan McGill was chairman of the student committee in charge of preparing the "nutrition express" display, assisted • by Clem Armstrong, Roger Winters, Robert Jones, Robert O'Neal and .Michael Gal- lihcr.

NIAL Don't get excited about the new draft figures. They'may turn out to be slightly deceptive. Back in August the Army announced it'would need -10,000' draftees in November. In September it called for 15, December. And in October it told Selective Service It, wanted 20,000 in January. Those are the draft figures. The Army waited till the last day of November before, saying how many men it would need in February. Usually it gives. Selective Service about 90 days advance notice on its monthly draft needs. Last month it waited till Nov. 30 and then announced it expected to take only 5,000 men for February. At the same' time it, reduced its January call from 20,000 to 10,000.* The Army said "limitation of. the military budget" -is the reason for reducing its January call and for asking for so few men in February when the best guess was. it would ask for at least 20,000, maybe more. Judging from this, it would look very much as though future draft calls will be a lot-less than originally expected. But don't count, on it. If you have got used to the idea of including yourself in the country's draft" plans keep right on doing it. Because at the- drop of a cigarette butt .the Army can double or triple its monthly draft calls. •' The. Army has a good psychological reason for announcing drastic draft cutbacks at this time. President Truman and his Budget Bureau say the National Military Establishment should get-no more than $15,- meet all its commitments. It's not only the Army which may Diamond Elected Head Of.

The Navy and Air Force will share the $8,000,000,000 reduction in the overall military budget —if Congress goes along with the President and votes only the $15,000,000,000. The 80th Congress (which -goes out of office. Jan. 3) is strongly on record, for building up the -Army to a total of about 900,000 men. That was the reason for the draft in the first place, that and the need for a Ws ready reserve, absorbed in these other ways, and there's no way to find out. Meantime, don't change your draft plans. Exceeded Expectations Thomas Jefferson was of the opinion that Washington, D. C., might have, 100.000 'inhabitants at the end of 100 years, and might ultimately attain a maximum population of 200,000. The District's population was listed as 683,031 in the 1940 census.

That's what the '80th Congress did last Spring, when the Air Force plugged for its program— and got it over the President's recommendation against it, Cutting draft calls is one of the surest ways of putting the budget question squarely in front of .Congress and the people..
