"Therefore, I, Warren G. Harding,
President of the United States, do

"Citizens in every State are urged
to give special and thoughtful atten
tion to the needs and aids of the pub
lic schools. It is particularly recom
mended that efforts be addressed to
practical expression of community in
terest in public education. To that end
organizations for civic advancement
and social betterment are , earnestly
requested when is can be made pilac
ticable, to provide, programs which
will inform the people concerning the
vital needs in this direction, instruct
them regarding shortcomings and de
ficiencies in present facilities and
bring to their attention specific, con
structive methods by which, in the
respective communities these deficien
cies may be supplied.
' "The subject of public education,
has always been very close to the
American heart, and to the fact that
it has been made a chief responsibil
ity of local governmental units, we
largely owe the wide diffusion of edu
cational facilities. It is believed that
a widespread and earnest effort at
observance of education week would
do much to emphasize this feeling of
immediate responsibility. Therefore it
is suggested that the pulpit, press,
schools, and public gatherings be en
listed in behalf of this special effort."

Do the right thing at the right time.
Act quickly in time of danger.
In time of kidney danger, Doan's
Kidney Pills are most effective.
Plenty of Manning evidence of their
worth. Ask your neighbor!
Mrs. B. F. Louder, Dinken St.,
Manning, says. "I had a slight at
tack of kidney trouble which started
with smart pains through the small
of my back. Headaches bothered ie
a good deal, and sometimes I was so
nervous I couldn't hold anything in
my hand. I was bothered with dizzy
spells, too, and black specks often
camte before me, in fact, I was feel
ing all out of fix. A friend told me
about Doan's Kidney Pills and I got
some. Doan's not only helped me but
cured me entirely of the trouble as
I haven't been bothered since."
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy--get
Doan's Kidney 'ills-the same that
