State Fire Marshal Tolls Why He
Bans Dangerous Fireworks
This country has a great victory
to celebrate the coming Fourth of
July but: Not with dangerous and
destructive fireworks 1
The bovs are home: they do not
want to hear loud explosions or
smell any gunpowder.
There was enough of that in
Europe to last them their natural
The same rules on fireworks is
sued by this department last year
are in force now t
The reason (besides the noise,
dirt and expense) is that property
and human life is at stake.
Without any added horrors of
the Red peril, Ohio has burned over
160 people to death already this
year an.d crippled twice as many.
The loss in the United States for
one or two celebrations with fire
works in one year is $275,000.
"We need every cent of that
money and the other huge amounts
we carelessly burn every day to pay
off the debts incurred in war!
There are lame, halt and blind
people enough (left by the under
tow of war) without an added
casualty list made by a foolish dis
play of fireworks July 4.
Let us have the same sane Fourth
we had when this country was in
the grip of a world's conflict.
In the year following the Span
ish American war, people celebrat
ed? in such a manner that there
were 215 deaths and 5,092 injuries
credited to the Nation's birthday.
Then fire prevention men and
women got busy and campaigned
more vigorously man oeiore io
stop the slaughter and let people
see the unreasonableness of the
celebration in that 'manner.
' The list of dead dropped to 28 in
1918. This year it should strike
The toy balloon, the chasers and
all fireworks such as will leave a
combustible hase are under the ban
of this department.
A "sctpiece" will be allowed
only when so charged that sparks
will not be thrown a greater dis
Ancc than 5 feet, (when such exhi
bition is allowed by ordinance) , and
it must not be discharged within
100 feet of buildings or combustible
material. It must be fired by an
expert and all precautions taken
against fire and accident.
Dviiamite and cannon crackers,
and the deadly toy pistol firing a
blank cartridge, must not appear
at any time.
The wheat is' ripening, and hay
is in the barns. A toy baloon may
wipe out a season's crops. They
should ,not be made by private
people, nor should they be manu
factured and sold. The hot air
tissue paper balloon has millions
of dollars in fire waste to its
Roman candles and skyrockets
are a menace to property and to
life, and a change of wind or a
misjudging of the angle at which
they are discharged may cause a

Yields Show Ohio Should
Much More Fertilizer.
The amount of commercial ferti
lizer used in Ohio last year, if
equally divided, would have cover
ed each tillable acre with only 44
pounds. Medina county was in the
lead with an average of 96 pounds.
A few years ago the use of commer
cial fertilizers was considered nec
essary only on poor land ; today its
use even on the best of land is ac
cepted as a mark of good farming.
Without the phosphorus which
commercial fertilizers supply, clo
ver yields decrease and the home
made manures are unable to pro
duce maximum benefit. At least
200 pounds per acre of acid phos
phate, or its equivalent, is needed
by farm land for each year that it
produces a crop of gram or hay.
(At present only about one-fifth of
this amount is used. The wheat
crop responds welL to liberal ferti
lization and should receive a heaw
application of acid phosphate not
only for the benefit to the wheat
crop itself but also for the encour
agement to the clover which f ollows

control measures, according to R.
B. Cnuckshank of the College of
Agriculture, are to spray with a
mixture consisting of one ounce of
arsenate of lead to 1 gallon of
water, or one ounce of paris green
to ten gallons of water. These
spray materials will stick better if
a cubic inch of soap is dissolved
and added. Since the cabbage

QUIT SCHOOL TOO SOON
Children Should Finish High
School, SayB Pearson.
A letter sent broadcast to parents
and teachers by F. B. Pearson, Su
perintendent of the Department of
Public Instruction, urges that
school children should not be al
lowed to drop out of school when
barely through the eighth grade
and as the subject should receive
the most careful attention we are
reproducing the letter for the bene
fit of our readers.
Columbus, Ohio, June 16, 1919.
To Teachers and Patrons:
Statistics show that of the pupils
who finish the eighth grade only
about thirty-five per cent complete
tne work ot the high school, what
becomes of the other sixty-five per
cent has not been determined. If
a ship should start across the ocean
with one hundred passengers on
board and should arrive on. the
other side with only thirty-five sur
vivors, there would ensue a rigid
investigation, but the high school
loses sixty-five out of one hundred
enroute and neither parents nor
teachers seem especially disturbed.
If pupils, teachers and parents
could be induced to wear mourning
when a pupil drops out, we might
thus generate public sentiment. If
the depressing loss is due to the
course of study, somebody ought to
have the wisdom to formulate a bet
ter one; if this loss is due to the
character of the teaching, somebody
ought to be able to show us how to
do this better ; if the loss is due to
the indifference of parents, some
body ought to be able to convince
them that their children could
profit by the work of the high
school. Whatever the eause, the
situation calls for careful consider
ation. We should invoke the aid
of the press, the pulpit and the
community m an earnest effort to
change this situation for the better
and it will be well for us to insti
tute a follow-up program this sum
mer in an effort to induce every
eighth grade pupil, not only to
enter the high school, but to conr
tinue the work until he achieves
