TTO«D*Y, AUOOTT 22, IS BACK ON JOB Expects Comrades At Fair Next Week DBS MOINES »U>> - The spirit that forced the "Boys ja Blue" to victory in 1865 still Jives, and the Iowa G. A. R.'s spry little adjutant general, J. P. Rlsley, 87, is proof of it. Two weeks ago General Rjsley was seriously ill and attending Physicians issued doubtful bulletins from bis bedside. But the general himself was not doubtful, for he knew there *as work to do. He took a turn for the better and last Saturday came down to his basement office In the Iowa statehouse. "You see," he explained sprightly," there was so much to be done down here that I just had to get better in a hurry and get at it." "Right now," he continued, "I'm in the midst of getting out a general order calling attention of veterans to Old Soldier's Day at the Iowa State fair. Aug. 29." The general, scoffed at the idea that he might overwork-in view of the weakness with which his illness had left him. "Anyone is better off working." he explained. "This special order has to go out. Besides there was a lot of routine matters piling up. Xo. there'll be no overworking." Last year 48 G. A. R. members attended Old Soldiers' day at the fair-and signed the register which General Rialey provided. "This year I hope there will he a larger number," he said. "If the weather' is good there's no reason why we cannot have a second reunion here at the fair this year." ACQUITTED! Wearing the same dress and the same smile that has featured her appearance through the duration of her sensational trial, Mrs. Jessie Costello. accused of the poison murder of her husband, is pictured as she arrived at the Salem, Mass., caart to hear the verdict of not guilty.

Their, /tvuruxi of "IketH* "tHim. 1b«wi j'ackci" Getting Ready for School "Within a few short weeks the peal of bells will announce the opening of another school year and mark the introduction to school life of a new group of children," notes the Iowa state department of health. That there are certain health hazards related to the school environment, there can be no doubt. This applies particularly to the group of communicable diseases. During the summer months there is lessened prevalence of the majority of infectious conditions, dne in large measure to the fact that children are outdoors, enjoying sunshine and open air from dawn to dark. With the approach of cool weather, much of the time is spent indoors, where grouping, proximity, heated rooms and inadequate ventilation of public buildings favor the spread of germ and virus diseases from person to person. Parents can do much to lessen these health hazards by increasing the resistance of their children thru vaccination, immunization and the correction of physical defects which impair health. "Last May before the close of the school year, many preschool children were examined in connection with "Summer Roundup" or child health conferences sponsored by the Iowa Congress of Parents and Teachers, American Legion auxiliary and other voluntary health organizations. Much of this work wag done in the offices of attending physicians. On these occasions, major emphasis was placed on the importance of immunization against diphtheria and vaccination to prevent smallpox. Defects of vision, of hearing or posture were discovered, malocclusion and decay of teeth were noted and some of the parents reported repeated attacks of tonsillitis i n the case of John or Mary, who also had bad tonsils. Parents who have not as yet done so. are urged to act promptly and to avail themselves of measures which will add much to the mental and physical well being of their children who are soon to enter school. "In Maryland where vaccination for smallpox is compulsory, responsibility rests with pare'nts to see that children are successfully vaccinated before admission to school. "Any teacher who permits an unvaccinated child to enroll is liable to a fine of $10 for such an offense. During 1930. 193i; and 1932, but one case of smallpox was reported in Maryland. In Iowa vaccination may be required 'when smallpox is prevalent', which unfortunately is often too late to avert an epidemic As a result, during the same 3-year period when Maryland reported one case of -.allpox..6,440 cases of this loathsome disease were reported in Iowa. "Parents who safeguard their children against readily preventable diseases like smallpox \and diphtheria can dismiss the dread of illness in ths home from these causes. Such parents likewise fulfill an obligation to others in the community, by helping to prevent the further spread of contagion." Dr. William F. Ogtmra, noted economist of the University of Chicago, is shown at his desk Just before he resigned from NRA's consumers'- Advisory council after a dispute with Mr*. Mary Rumsey over policies of the board in checking undue price . increases. FIVE I.
