The foot ball game was called
off lust Friday by Bloonulalo on
account of the rain, The boys of
P. II. S. were eager for a game
rain or shine, but Bloomdale did
not wish to play.
( Next Friday P. H. S. will jour
ney to Prairie Depot to play. A
good game is expected as all play
ers are in fine condition. This is
the last out of town game to be
played by P. II. S. The three last
games of the season are to be
played at home.
Come out and see the boys of
your home town play. You'll not
be sorry for it because the team
has improved fifty per cent over
last year, due to the excellent
coaching of Mr. Ilanely.

Beverly Hayes says: "Buy Red Cross Christmas Seals. They protect
'little children from the ravages of tuberculosis. They build a barrier 'of

' "They spell hope, assurance and ihyslcal and economic rehabilitation to
I more than one million people In the United States who have tubercu

' "Last year 150,000 people fell victims of the disease. Twelve thousand
i of these were' little children. Think f It 1 This death toll Is needless. If

was distinctly original and even
the criticizing Athenians couldn't
find fault with it. We wish people
would show moro interest in our

great deal of competition' between
the two societies this year and
every program rendered is de
cidedly different than the one
previous. The next program will
be given, by the Athenian society

. The Bed Cross Seal as millions of
Americans know It to day, Is an agent
of happiness and health. It was orig
inated In 1007 by Miss Emily P. Blssell,
of Wilmington, Delaware, who learned
through Jacob Klls of somewhat simi
lar seals that were sold In Norway for
the purpose of raising funds with
which to fight tuberculosis.
Miss Blssell persuaded the Ameri
can Red Cross to take up the Idea with
the result that seals were sold in a
limited number of communities In
1008. The sale yielded a revenue of
approximately $3,000. The Red Cross
then decided to Ibsuo tho seals each
year and to turn the proceeds over to
the National Tuberculosis associuuou
and Its affiliated societies for the pur
pose of flnanclngthe campaign against
tuberculosis. The number of seals'
cold In America Increased by leaps
and bounds until In 1017 the total
This year the seals are again on
sale beginning December 1. More
than half a billion seals have been
printed for distribution to stnte and
local agents. In addition to the
seals "Health Bonds" In denomina

are to bo sold In lieu of seals to

A call for volunteers to fight under
the standard of the National Tubercu
losis Association and Its 1000 affiliated
bodies throughout the-country against
tuberculosis humanity's most vicious
foe has been sounded.
A recent health survey, made by the
experts of the National Tuberculosis
Association, brought to light some
startling statistics with regard to the
prevelency of the disease. The find
ings of tills survey have revealed a
national menace, which must be eradi
cated. The figures show that each
year 150,000 persons die of the dis
ease and that there axe approximate
ly 2,000,000 cases of tuberculosis In
the United States today.
The untaught consumptive one who
does not know the rules of health, Is
an Indefatigable spreader of the dis
ease. Wherever he goes, he leaves be
hind him a trail of the deadly germs.

DOUBLE BARRED GROSS
ADOPTED 17 YEARS AGO
The double barred Rod Cross Is
seventeen years old this month. In
dctober, 1002J the International Antl
Tuberculosls Association, then meeting
In Berlin, adopted the cross as the
emblem of the world-wide fight against
tuberculosis. It was proposed by Dr.
G. Serslron, of Paris. It is a com
bination of the Croix de Lorraine and
the cross of tho Greek Catholic
church. Both crosses are symbolic of
charity and help to humanity. Their
combined features were selected and
adopted as the symbol of the hope of
civilization. Four years later, in 1000,
the double barred Red Cross was car
ried Into this country. It was in 1000,
the National Tuberculosis Association
was formed, and for the three Inter
vening years the cross has been car
ried over tho United States by the
National Tuberculosis Association and
Its affiliated bodies, which now num
ber one thousand.
The work of these organizations Is'
financed chiefly by the Red Cross
Christmas Seal sale.
