It is the time when the nation's schools report to the people. The founders of American Education week who paved the Way for the first observance in 1921 little dreamed of the.,tremendous growth in significance and results that it has come to have. It has become, chiefly, a visit-vonr- , . . • 0 / */ .' • schools week and it is estimated that seven or eight million parents and other citizens visit their schools during the observance each year. That is the program adopted in Ludington as elsewhere. Few formal ]rrogiums are planned, but, through the pupils and otherwise, there are invitations to parents and others to come to school some day during the week and see at first hand what goes on. The theme of this year's observance is "Education for the American Way of Life," and the program of the National Education association, which sponsors the annual event appropi'iately adds this definition: 'What is the American way of life? "It is the free way. allowing one to live according to his conscience; "It is a peaceful way, settling differences by elections and courts; "It is a friendly way, judging success by happiness and growth; "It is a co-operative way, emphasizing service to the common good; \ "It is a democratic way, based on human brotherhood and the Golden Rule. "And what is education for the American way? "It is universal, opening its doors to all the people; "It is individual, helping each person to make the most of his talents; "It is tolerant, seeking truth through free and open discussion; "It is continuous, knowing that learning is a lifelong necessity; ."It. is prophetic, looking always toward a better civilization." Such are the ideals of American life and education. There"can be nothing static about them. Education for the American way of life is not something set and already accomplish ed; it is not a fixed tribute to past history and past glories,-It must be, if it is to be a living force, a dominant way of life for the future—"looking always toward a better civilization." The school, as one educator expressed it, must "not be set apart from ^society on an academic hill." It is part of the people, one of the principal institutions created by them to express their aims. As an organization, it lives intimately for 10 months of each year—more intimately with the lives of onr people than any other single institution. This is the picture we are asked to contemplate during American Education week. Bo visit your school this week. See the pupils in their activities a.nd meet their teachers. It is an excellent way to make yourself a-direct part of the task of public eflucation. Halting the Progress of Spinal Curvature , By LOGAN CLBNDENING. M. D. WHAT IS the proper treatment for curvature of the tpinef Curvature of the spine tends to be a progressive disease. Treatment should therefore begin at the earliest possible stage in order to arrest the steady progress. The first step is to get a record of the exact condition at the start with x-rays and silhouette photographs. Then the child's intelligence must be appealed to. Say that if she (girls are affected twice as often as boys) holds herself straight, and does it vigorously and determinedly, it will be of the greatest importance to,the future of her body. Explain Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. that a crooked back held straight looks better than a straight back held slouched or twisted. This can only be done by intelligence and will •power. If she is not intelligent enough to do it, she must be treated like an animal and put in harness.

It is well known among physiologists that guinea pigs are very sensitive to asthma. In fact, most of our fundamental knowledge of allergy, of which asthma is one manifestation, is due to studies in the reaction of guinea pigs to injections of serum or any foreign protein in the veins. This produces shock accompanied by severe asthma. Experiments done only this year have shown that asthma can be Pfaduced in guinea pigs by filling the atmosphere of the room in which they are kept with a light spray of fine particles of protein. It was found that no variation in the severity of the asthma was dependent on temperature, humidity or atmospheric pressure, as long as these conditions remain constant on the day of the experiment. But if there are rapid changes of weather conditions, asthma is produced by half as heavy a protein spray as on constant days. This not only confirms the assertions made by asthma sufferers that Changeable April and November days are their worst ones, but also opens up a possibility of the application of meteorologic methods of treatment EDITOR'S NOTE: Dr. CUndenlng hv •*v*n pfttnphltU which CM b* obUlntd by mdm.

PAUL'S reply to the question where was he from nine-thirty to five minutes of ten was promptly given. "I was lying on my bed in my room at the cottage." "How long had you been there?" "I think about 15 minutes. I talked with mother In her room for a while and with my sister in the living room. Then mother—she was in bed—thought she would try to sleep and Pauline had some letters to write, so I went to my own room. I was there when I heard the—scream and went to join In the search." "And you, Mr. Orton?" "I was reading in the living room of my cottage." "Were you the only one In the cottage?" "I think so. I know Barry was In and out a couple of times during the evening, but at that particular time I am sure he was out. "And what did you do when you heard the scream ?" "Dashed outside. I could hear running feet and voices, but the fog was so thick I didn't see anyone until I met Miss Gordon over by the rose arbor." "Why did you go In that direction ?" "Because I thought the scream came from that way." "Mr. Barry." Lancy dismissed Orton, with a curt nod. "Where were you at the time named?" "In the living room of Miss Easton's cottage?" Lancy scowled. "How long had you been there?" "Practically all the evening, if j you except a couple of trips over to my cottage." "At what time did you make the trips and for what purpose?" Barry hesitated. : "Speak up," snapped Lancy. "It shouldn't be hard to answer a simple question," "It isn't hard, but liable to misconstruction when I tell you I went to my place for a bottle of whiskey. That was the first time. The second time I went for a letter %vhich I wanted Miss Easton to read. I haven't any idea what time it 'was." "I see.'And what did you and Miss Eaton do when you heard the scream?" "I started to run out. but Miss Easton was afraid to be left alone, so I stayed with her." "And just when did you learn that Mrs. Peake was dead?" Barry considered. "I don't know," he said with an air of frankness, "but I should think in about a half hour." "Who told you ?" "Orton." "That right, Orton ?" "It is." It seemed to me that Barry's face lighted with relief at Orion's prompt reply. Lancy appeared not so pleased. "Hu-um!" he said softly as he fingered his chin. "The only ones who have disinterested alibis are Miss Peake, Miss Gordon, Miss Button and Mr. Abbott." Dr. Paul spoke angrily. "I should | think the fact that the door was iopen between my mother's and sister's rooms at the time would constitute an ironclad alibi for them. I can see where I haven't one, for there was a closed door between us." j Lancy's reply was as smooth as whipped cream. "I said a DISIN- iTERESTED alibi, doctor. That adjective, means a great deal in my business." He looked around as mildly as though he were about to present us all with good conduct diplomas. "Surely you wouldn't say that Miss Easton'a and Mr. Barry's alibi is worthless! Still it Is not disinterested, they CLOSE friends." being such I caught a swift exchange of knowing glances between Coral and Barry. Then I realized that Lancy's alert eyes were probing each face, summing up the effect of his apparently complacent words. He saw that meaning exchange as "-"11 as I did. His words "And what did you do when you heard the scream' meant just nothing. I was certain of that. "Dr. Peake, you left the others on the terrace when your dog began to bark, didn't you?" "I did." ' "But you had not reached the run when you heard the scream?" "That is correct." "Don't you think It took you a long time to go around the house to the run?" "I do. I could have done it In one-tenth of the time if it had not been foggy. But after I ran into two shrubs and fell over a lawn chair, I gave up trying to hurry." "I see. And what did you do when you heard the scream?" "I started back to the house as fast as I could go." "Why to the house?" Lancy's voice was changed. There was a steely note in it which made me shiver. "Because I thought it was Josle screaming on the terrace. She was badly upset when I left her just a moment before, and I thought something had frightened her." "Go on." "I met Josie, Rhoda and Duncan coming around the corner of the house. They thought the scream came from the direction of the run. We wasted some time trying to decide where it really did come from, then started back toward the run. Before we got there we met Sally and Orton. We talked; then I went to the run. Paul met me just as I got there. Orton came over and suggested we look in his cottage, as mother had agreed to see him that evening. In about ten minutes Duncan came and told us—" His voice trailed off inte silence. Could those searching questions mean that the detective suspected Neal? The horrible thought flashed through my mind like a blinding white light, a light that penetrated every corner, that brought into prominence something unknown before. I knew now why I so disliked Coral Easton. I, heartwhole and unconcerned, who had gone through the last seven years without a second thought for any man. I—had fallen for Dr. Neal Peake. Fallen for is a mild expression. I loved him. I worshiped him. I had been there three days and he was the whole world to me. And he—he was in love with Coral Easton. I couldn't trust the feeling I had had that he was beginning to sicken of her wiles and ruthlessness. That might be a belief born of my own desire. What a mess! I was caught In the meshes of a net I had not seen until its folds enveloped me. I, freckle-faced, red-headed Sally Gordon, loved a man I had known just three days and who didn't care one whit for me. I don't know what had been said while those wild, horrible, delightful thoughts ran through my mind. But when I came back to normality every one was leaving the room. I looked up to .find Lancy's eyes on mine. A speculative light gleamed In them. I found myself blushing as tiotly as though, caught in a reckless indiscretion. Some way, I couldn't rid myself of the belief that that detective had the power to read my mind. "Come with me, Sally. 1 want you." Josie's voice roused me. With an effort I tore my eyes from Lancy's steady gaze and rose to my feet. I could hardly walk. I was as teetery as a sub deb on her first spike heels. With a strong effort I brought my mind back to the world around me. "What can I do for you, Josie?" I asked. She slipped her arm through mine and guided me to the terrace door. The fresh sweet air blew the remaining confusion from my bemused brain and I sank into a chair beside her with a sigh of sheer thankfulness. "Sally, I believe Captain Lancy thinks either Orton or Barry killed mother."

SCOTTVILLE News From Mason County's Second Largest City, Agricultural and Dairying Center MRS. FRANK BARCLAY, Correspondent (Telephone: Office, No. 1; Horn* 126-F-14.) American Farm Products Market Is Improved by European War Demands I returned to Detroit Friday and CHICAGO, Nov. 7.— (#)— Tons of grain pouring from elevator soouts into vessel holds for shipment through the Great Lakes today attested to improved wartime European demand for some American farm products. As rapidly as ship space could be obtained grain was being funneled into bottoms here. Boats were in demand because of expanded requirements for charges of grain as well as other commodities, particularly ore to feed the booming Calumet steel furnaces. Tall elevators that line the Calumet and Chicago rivers were disgorging their grain into waiting ships below at an even faster pace than some commodities could be shipped into Chicago. For example, soy bean shipments last week by boat and rail totaled 1,904,000 bushels, compared with receipts of 1,005,000 bushels. The rush to put grain into vessel bottoms and clear Chicago wharves was due partly to efforts to fill delivery on accumulated business be'fore navi- was accompanied to Scottville Ration closes and also to increased European demand for soy beans, which is breaking all export records in that commodity, and for corn.
