SHORT HOLIDAY FOR THEM
High School Students Will HaTe aVa
cation of Ten Days.
The trustees of Columbia High
School decided last night to dismiss
the high school from Friday, Decem
ber 20, until Monday, December 30,
for the Christmas holidays. This is
the shortest Christmas vacation al
lowed at any of the schools of Col
umbia and is shorter than is usually
allowed at the high school. The short
period was allowed this year because
the high school began later than us
ual last fall and a longer recess would
put the close of school in June. The
authorities want to finish the term
before June 1.

has a good effect on the skin, closing
the pores bo that they are not so
open to the cold."
Mr. Field intends to give sometime
during the year a series of five or
six-minutes talks on personal hygiene
to the gym classes.
"A cold is an infectious disease,"
says Dr. W. J. Calvert, professor of
preventive medicine. "There are two
ways of Infection, one from the out
side when germs flying about in the
air get into the body through the nose
or mouth, and auto-infection, that
which takes place from germs already
in the body when the natural resist
ance is lowered.
"Whenever the body is chilled or in
any way the circulation is driven
from the surface of the body, there
is a congestion of the blood in the
mucous membrane of the nose and in
fection results. The cold germs are
transmitted In the secretions of the
mouth and nose. Whenever a person
sneezes the germs are thrown out into
How Colds Spread.
"A cold will spread from one mem
ber of a family to all the others, from
one house to all the others in the
block, just as the measles will spread.
Really, the treatment that should be
used Is the same as Is applied In
other infectious diseases quarantine
of the patient. But that well, it will
be a long time before we get to that.
"Anything that chills the body low
ers its resistance and makes it liable
to infection from the cold germs.
Fresh air is a stimulant in keeping
the body in perfect condition. In the
ordinary house, enough fresh air gets
into the room through the cracks
about the windows and doors. Where
two students live in a room, more
ventilation, of course, is necessary."
According to the way some physi
cian has figured it out, it will not be
long until, when a person in a house
gets a cold, he will be shut off in a
room by himself and given a "bacter
ine," which acts like the diphtheria
anti-toxin. All the other people in
the house will also be given the "bac
terine". This doctor's experiments
have shown that a certain germ
causes a cold and that a man may be
at one time immune to it and at an
other time be susceptible. The serum
which he has prepared has also been
successful to a certain degree in cur
ing and preventing colds.
From Another Physician.
"There may be several different
kinds of germs causing colds," says
Dr. A. W. Kampschmidt. "We really
know little about them. There may
be several different kinds of colds,
some worse than others. If we could
get a serum that would work well, it
could be used to prevent and cure
colds, but it is hard to get a serum
that will work the same on all men.
Fresh air is good and a cold shower
in the morning is good for some peo
ple in the prevention of colds."
Summing up, the best way to get
rid of a cold after you have got one
is to do everything that you can to
get back into perfect health again and
help your body fight it out with those
little bad cold bugs. And remember
these things will help you to keep the
germs from getting the start on you:
Sleep with your windows open.
Avoid a draft
Get out into the open all you can.
Take a cold plunge every morning
most of you.
Wear warm clothing, not exposing
any part of the body more than an
other. Eat regularly.
Avoid anything that will lead to in
digestion or constipation.
Take regular exercise.
And any time you see one of those
bad cold bugs swat him.

GAME "KIDDOO FAILS HERE

Student Attempts to Introduce It bnt
The first attempt, made yesterday,
to introduce among the students of
the University the newest but ungen
tlemanly game of "Kiddoo" failed be
cause the principal lost his nerve.
After saying the "fatal word" in the
game he made a hasty retreat.
This sport, which originated among
the students of the Harvard Law
School, is one in which young women
play an important although not active
part Whenever the players see a
young woman, if one of them thinks
she is good looking, he points two
fingers at her and yells "Kiddoo". If
the rest of the party, after looking
her over in a manner that is intended
to be inoffensive, decide that she is
good looking the "Kiddooer" gets 10
points on a possible total of 50; if
not he loses 10 points. When the to
tal is on the winning side the posses
sor is treated by the rest; on the los
ing end the "Kiddooer" must purchase.
