We re-affirm ous stnnd for antinarcotic education and make vigorous protest against th.3 type of billboard advertising which purposes to recruit to the ranks of cigarette users the young girls of the nation, and wliich gives to our young men Ihe impression that tb« use of lobacco is an asset In an athletic career. 2. '-Vhereas there are County Health Units in only twenty-three of the seventy-five counlies o;' Ar- kamas; and Whereas, lions and all other departinenls of health work are vitally handicapped by the lack of County Health UnlU; Be It resolved, that we, the Arkansas Branch of the National pre-school examina- Congress of Parent, 1 ; and Teachers endorses legislation to secure Increased appropriation whereby the stale may complele Us program for County Health Units. 3.
