County Public Health Board Met In Den ton Last Tuesday At the regular meeting of the Public Health Board on Tuesday, Preston, Greensboro and Denton were represented. Mrs. Clayton Taylor, of Preston, is the new secretary, while the duties of thu treasurer will be assumed by Miss Bertha Miller, of Greensboro. Mrs. Harry Nutlle continue:; as piesident and Mrs. Harry Ilmn-dcll as publicity director. Plans wei-u made for continuing the observance of Tag D:iy, which will be on election day, as usual. Our slogan- is "support your county nurse on Tag Day." The local Health Department was fortunate in being able to secure from the Bureau of Child Hygiene of the State Office an exhibit on nutrition which was very attractively displayed in the window of a local firm located near the platform used by the President of the United States in his Labor Day address here. It is hoped that many of the parents were in Denton during the last week-end before th.c county schools opened and took advantage of studying this exhibit. It was a pleasure to assist the Health Officer and Town Commissioners with the conversion of the Health Office Annex, and the Health Office proper, with improvised rest rooms and a first aid station. The latter was managed very capably by the local Boy Scout Troop. It was Miss Smith's privilege, during September, to help in the accumulation of material to be used in a pamphlet being published by the Maternity Center of New York, for prospective parents. Since the opening of school, the health department has been busy on the examination of school children. A visit is first made arranging a day for the visit, the proper place to be used and leaving curds to be filled out. ThL; year the parents arc being invited to the ex- nniitmtion, so that they may see the defects and talk the matter over with the nurse. In some schools the response was splendid, in others it was poor. It is hoped that the interest will gradually grow. Finding these defects early in the school year and having them corrected will give the children a better chance to do good work. Also it means a better attendance since the weather is better than it will be later. The ! c visits by the nurse will be made regularly, at least once a month. The syphilis clinics are better attended since the closing of the canneries. The Fcderalsburg clinic now has a colored maid to care for the cleaning, thus saving the nurses much time. The location of the clinic in the northern part of the county may soon be changed. With new floor covering and other much needed improvements, the Annex now has the air of a full fledged health center, where much activity for the good of the county is carried on. Two mothers' classes will soon be started here. Efforts to prevent the spread of scarlet fnver have been made by visits to nil reported cases. Two crippled school children have received corrective assistance and are now able to join in playground activities. National Youth Administration workers are assisting in copying birth and death records. They also help in the care of clinical equipment. In addition to the work mentioned, the tuberculosis survey will be continued. Screened cribs that were loaned through the Bureau of Child Hygiene in an effort to prevent diseases in infancy have been used in various part- of the county. Parents have expressed appreciation for this service. Midwives are showing the improvement made as a result of the information and training given them by the nurses. Several hundred visits have been made and much literature distributed by the nurses during the month. A COMMUNICATION California, with its beautiful palm drives, flowers, fruits and vegetables, also has fine and extensive highways. We have had some very hot summer days during August and September but have had no rain since April last. They have to irrigate the groves every few days. They have overhead sprinklers, pipes which work automatically and send out spray that is very much like rain. We have had plenty of early vegetables. Tomatoes early in July selling for ten cents per large box. Not so cheap now. Peaches at 30 cents per large box. The clings are the ones they use for canning so they are not so plentiful and higher in price. The Japs do all the vegetable growing. They grow fields of culery in winter and it sells as low as ten cents per bunch. Strawberries were high, too. Pints for 25 cents. We bought quite a lot of the young berries and now the figs and grapes are ripe. We have to go out where they pick them in whole fields of grapes. San Diego is our nearest large city. It is a Coast City, 45 miles from Vista. It has a large Naval Airport, also Military Colleges. My youngest grandson is in the John Brown Military Academy there. Glendale is a beautiful city one hundred miles from Vista and is noted for its fine parks. Forest Lawn Park has many beautiful acres, fountains with swans and ducks on lake and cemetery. There also the Church of The Flowers and the Wee Church of the Heather. Called in Scotch The Wee Kirk of the Heather, where eight t h o u s a n d couples have been married and many notables--Will Rogers, Marie Dressier, and Jean Harlow--have all had their lost rites performed. I see Denton has had the honor of entertaining President Roosevelt and I am pleased to know that you all gave him a hearty welcome. I had a fine view of market street in The Philadelphia Bulletin and some familiar faces of these I well know, J. L. George and Walter B. Long conversing about the President as voters. Mrs. Marcelenc Harris, Vista, California. Quilt Exhibition At Easton Oct. 22 There will be an Exhibit of old quilts and woven coverlets at Easton High School, October 22nd, 11 a. m. to 9 p. m., admission 25 cents. There will be a talk at 3 p. m. by Mrs. Florence Peto, authority on old quilts. The exhibit is being sponsored by the following clubs: Current Events Club, Boston Talbot Women's Club St. Michaels Club Cambridge Women's Club For information, kindly get Stockmen's Tour Set For Next Friday in touch with Mrs. Devid Gregg, "Benu- vais Woods", Easton, phone 163-M, Chairman of Collections. If 'any club member has any old quilts of interest that they will exhibit, please contact Mrs. David Gregg.

Any one who has any of the patterns is requested to enter them in the Exhibit. A tour to be held under the auspices of the Maryland Stockmen's Association on 'Friday, October 21, is announced by George K. Bailey, acting president, and Joseph M. Vail, .secretary. Plans provide for visits to .three farms in the northern section of the Eastern Shore. Starting nt Andclot Stock Farm, near Worton, at 10:00 a. m., those making the tour will see some 250 head of breeding Aberdeen- Angus cattle. The next stop will be at the farm of R. M. Carpenter, near Cocilton, where a herd of about BO breeding Hereford cattle and GO steers on feed will be the attraction. The third visit will be made at the Kincaid Farm, Elkton, where Duroc- Jersey hogs will be the feature. The officers of the Stockmen's Association urge not only members to attend, but to bring as many stockmen as possible. They assure a real program, as well as the opportunity to visit some of the outstanding farms of the state. Red Cross Aids 15,000 Stricken Folk Chairman Norman H. Davis has informed the Caroline County Chapter that the Red Croso has given emergency relief to 03,000 people in the New England and Long Island hurricane and flood area, where more than GOO people lost their lives or arc missing. The Red Cross is giving emergency aid and rehabilitation to approximately 15,000 families in this devastated section, Mr. Davis said. An appeal was issued for a minimum Red Cross relief fund of $600,000 to care for the homeless families of the stricken region, and contribu- ti6ns were being received in a quick and generous response, particularly from the New England states. Five area headquarters have been set up by the Red Cross as follows: Providence, R. I.; Hartford, Conn.; New London, Conn.; Brooklyn, N. Y. for Long Island and Springfield, Mass. Thousands of Red Cross volunteers have been working among the flood victims, with the assistance of 150 Red Cross disaster relief workers, who were rushed into the storm area. Mr. Davis said that rehabilitation would be given to families who were without means to reinstate themselves. This will require rebuilding and repairing hundreds of houses, refurnishing, clothing and some aid to small businesses, he said. One of the acute problems is the heavy losses suffered by the fishing fleets out of the New England and Long Island ports. The Red Cross yesterday had mobilized temporary fishing boats and equipment, such as nets, lobster pots and traps, for the fishermen eo that they could continue at work, pending permanent relief measures. The Red Cross also has assigned many welfare workers to investigate problems of families who may have lost breadwinners through death, GO that women and children would have care to tide them over until state or federal relief was granted. "The Red Cross is the only agency that will take care of the human problems of these distressed families''^!^ Davis said. "I am told that the majority of these 16,000 families will prove to be without resources of cash or credit to meet the repairs and other needed rehabilitation measures. "These families become the charge of the Red Cross. We have sent 150 Red Cross workers, including building supervisors, family welfare workers, and others prepared to immediately check with the families. Roofs must be repaired, chimneys rebuilt, some whole houses rebuilt, means of livelihood restored for these thous- C.H.S.

Why not have a "National Study Your Lessons Week?" We have other "Nationol" weeks, such as "Cover Your Textbook", "Fire Prevention", and "Write a Letter" weeks, so why not a "Study Your Lessons Week" too? In many schools, there is a feeling among some of the pupils that scholastic achievements and athletics don't mix. This idea should be abolished, and the sooner it's gone, the better off the schools will be. Studying is sometimes considered "sissy", so many students who are really capable refuse to study. Another excuse for not studying is the fear of being called "teachers-pet". In reality, very few teachers hove pets. The great majority of teachem are keen enough and fair enough to distinguish between earnest effort and sham. A good mark honestly won by hard Seventh Grade News Kemp Nownam visited Valley Forge last Sunday and made an interesting report in our History clasfi. We are studying the Revolutionary Period and of course enjoyed the talk. We are looking forward to another treat for Kemp says he has the promise of a visit to Gettysburg National Cemetery when our class studies the Civil War. Freshman News The freshmen have been digging around these last few days in search of a measly dime. But it's not so measly when you think of a little French mademoiselle or monsieur popping np and asking you to hurry up and get through school so you can be married. Yes, you've guessed it. We're going to start a correspondence course. We pay ten cents to a professor in Boston, Mass., and he sends us a name. The little incident mentioned above has really happened. Don't be surprised if you see some of the freshmen buying tickets to the "Queen Mary" or the "Normandie" in a couple of years. Mr. Stull mentioned it a few days ago, and hoy, did gome of the girls blush. We haven't heard from our Science tests mentioned last week, but 111 try to let you know soon. Sophomore News Our Biology class finds us busy with our unit on "How Living Things Use Their Food". We are studying the composition of living things and the need of each part of the composition.

"Tests at one 'experiment station show that lime and sweet clover over a period of years has boosted corn yields from 39 bu. to 63 bu., and has cut coats from 64c a bu. to 47c a bu." At a meeting attended by representatives of all branches of the dairy manufacturing industry in the Baltimore and Washington areas, held at the University of Maryland on October 5, a permanent organization was formed to promote the beet interests of the industry. Dr. 1 Charles W. England, associate professor of dairy manufacturing at the University, was instrumental in arranging the meeting. He stated that there arc similar organizations in Chicago, New York, Cleveland, and Indianapolis--the one in this area being the fifth in this country. It was pointed out by Dr. England that dairying is the largest agricultural industry in the State from the standpoint of income produced annually, and that while there have been effective organizations of producers for a number of years, there has been no organization of those who are vitally interested in the welfare of the industry, but are not actually engaged in production of milk. The name chosen for the new organization is the Maryland-District of Columbia Dairy Technology Society. It is the intention, according to Dr. England, to hold meetings regularly at which authorities on various phases of dairy manufacturing will present the latest scientific information available. Officers elected nt the meeting were: Dr. Randall Whitakcr, of Scaliest, Inc., Baltimore, president; S. H. Harvey, who operates a dairy in the Washington area, vice-president; and J. R. Parks, of the Green Spring Dairy in the Baltimore area, secretary-treasurer. ands of people. Families are now being told by the Red Cross relief headquarters in all of the storm torn sections to register their needs. "The Red Cross is grateful for the cooperation of the many government agencies in the area. The WPA is doing a fine clean up job in the stricken towns, and is cooperating everywhere with the Red Cross. Other agencies, which are prepared to loan money where families have resources of credit, are clearing through the Red Cross relief headquarters. " I feel confident that every need is being met promptly. Our Chapters met an overwhelming relief task in the early days of the emergency." A resume of the reports made today to Mr. David, showing the extent of the suffering, follows: Connecticut: G,100 families. Massachusetts: 4,000 families. Rhode Island: 2,340 families. Long Island, New York: 750 families. New Hampshire: 1,000 families. Vermont: 600 families. Within a few hours after the hui- ricane struck,' Red Cross Chapters were marshalling their forces, and were housing, feeding and clothing refugees in almost a hundred points. In Hartford, Connecticut, last Friday and Saturday, the Red Cross had 2,200 persons, including 100 infant babies, in its charge. Through arrangements with Willard B. Rogers, Hartford hotel man, efficient' plans for feeding were arranged. Three city school?, a State trade school, the County Building and nn armory were used to house the refugees, who were supplied with army cots, mattresses and blankets. Last Saturday, for example, the Red Croso served the Hartford refugees, for breakfast, ost meal, boiled eggs, bread and butter and coffee. The lunch was similarly wholesome and at night they had hamburg steak, potatoes, pic and cake and tea, coffee or milk. The children and older poo- lessons . only one week, while we should study them all the weeks during our school year. Let's start this idea in Caroline Highl Literary Report For the last month, the Seniors have been reading letters. As a culmination of their study, they have been trying their own hand at writing letters. One of the most cleverly written and humorous letters in our text was written by Thomas Huxley (j the English scientist, to his very good friend, Matthew Arnold. It seems that Huxley had visited Arnold and in the excitement of leaving, forgot his "beautiful brown smooth- handled umbrella". He asked Arnold if he wouldn't please bring the umbrella to their club. The truth of the matter was that the umbrella was not beautiful but old and shabby, and if Arnold ever entered their club witn the old umbrella, he would never live the disgrace down. Two members of our class wrote very clever answers to Thomas Huxley. The first of these was written by Robert Thawloy; the second, by Thomas Longford. Harrow, England. July 10, 1868 tfy dear Huxley, This Jo in response to your very clever letter of July 8. Upon its reception I immediately went to the umbrella stand as directed. There resting in the stand wns^your beautiful brown smooth-handled umbrel- a. Undoubtedly your grandfather must have taken great pride, m owning such a relic. I'm sure it pleased you no end to receive this heirloom. Umbrellas are such bunglcsomc things that I'm quite sure that you will not mind waiting for it until your return visit here next month. Anyway, weather indications are such that we can expect dry weather in the forthcoming month. You will understand my predicament I'm quite pic had an afternoon lunch and the babies received a cereal diet. sure. Faithfully yours, Matt Arnold. Harrow, England. July 10, 1868. My dear Huxley, Please accept my deepest sympathy over the loss of your so much cherished umbrella. Because of important business arrangements, I find it impossible to deliver it (your umbrella) personally, and to have one of my servants bring it over is out of the question. So, to cause no further delay, (as you may need it) I am having it sent by mail. You may re^t assured that your forgetfulnoss has not put me to any trouble. So please accept my best wL-hes that it reaches you safely and unharmed. The Sophomore class is glad to welcome a new member, Thelma Nichols from Pennsylvania. Junior News Your old junior reporter is back on the air again. After a test in Chemistry we all feel better. Yesterday Mr. Crouse visited our class and asked the pupils some questions on nitrogen. In English we are still reading books in the library, but now each day four pupils give short reports on books read to interest other pupils so they will also read them. Although we have laboriously studied the American Revolution under Mrs. Rairigh, we again renew our efforts with Mr. Stull. Last, but not least, in Miss Spiccr's estimation, we have good old French. "Je ne suis pas dans la falle dc classe" or in English, "I am not in the class room/' Perhaps some of us wish that we weren't in class room when a test comes around. Senior News L'abbc Constantin, the old priest, walked slowly down the hot and dusty road "in the bright sunlight. He saw on the wall of the chateau of Longueval the posters announcing the sale of this large place which was going to be divided into four lots. The priest hated to see the old estate divided up and wondered who the new marquise would be. Who would supply the clothes for the poor like the last marquise had done? He recalled the times he had been walking by the farm of Longueval and had stopped at his friend Bernard's who gave him his supper and took him home by means of his horse and carriage. On the way they joked and had a good time. By this time he had come to the estate of the Lavardens. At the iavitation of the mistress he stopped awhile. While he was resting, he recalled the past history of their family. The father was dead but the son Paul, had all the characteristics of his father. He was a worthless boy- who cared only for a good time. While Paul was taking the priest home they met John Reynaud, who was entirely different from Paul because he had to earn his own money. His parents died when he was 14 and he Sincerely, Arnold.

We are very glad to welcome Marjoric MacDonald, who has returned to C. H. S. for a post graduate course. One of our star athletes, Clyde Pcntz, has made the freshman foot- jail team at Juniata College. Oscar Part'ons evidently believes in the saying "Go West, Young Man". He has enrolled at the University of Nebraska, where he is studying aviation. Arthur Nuttle is a student at nearby Washington College. Marie Noble paid C. H. S. a visit on Thursday, October 6.

During the course of the conversation they told John that Mre. Scott, an American, had bought the whole of Longueval. Then John ae- arted as he had to be about his ork. As he left the priest thought: There is no ono in all the world bet* cr than John." ' This ends the first chapter of 'abbe Constantin. T u e Seniors have received the mon- y from the P.-T. A. for the book for heir room. Now the big question is What book shall we get?" Athletic Department Last Friday Ridgely almost beat Jcnton, but the game was a tie 8-8. The girls played the third game of he season at Ridgely. They were not up to their usual form. Although Lilian Weir had a sprained thumb, he played a good game. Helen Pearins, was also injured on her, leg but this did not prevent her from plyinf. They were both very good sports. Our next game will he with Preston. We realize this will he a hard game so we are going to practice hard. Last Friday, Denton overcame Ridgely on the soccer field. With sloppy playing on both sides, but with good headwork, the score at the end of the game was 6-0. Burnley Wyatt kicked one goal and Wai (Ton to P«*« 8, piMM) KWSPAPERl EWSPAPERl
