MARKET SQUARE THE PLACE
Holiday to Be Marked by an Open Air
Program Suitable to the
A municipal Christmas tree will be
one cf the objects towards which the
civic department of the Woman's club
of Rock Island will work during the
next few months. Such action was
taken at a meeting of the department
yesterday in the parlors of the Ma
ponie temple, which by the way, will
be the meeting place during the year
of all the departments of the club, and
the playgrounds committee, of which
Mrs. F. C. penkmann Is chairman,
w i!l have In charge the arrangements
for the public tree. Plans have not
been made as to the manner in which
the project will be carried out but it
is probable that the tree will bo plac
ed in Market square, will be beauti
fully trimmed and lighted and that va
rious choirs and choruses of the city
will surround it and sing carols and
Christmas rones. The tree will be for
all children and will undoubtedly le
a,'j innovation for the city that w ill meet
with the heartiest approval of all the
children as well as the grown-ups.
Muncipal Christmas trees have been
a feature of Christmas week in a num
ber of the cities of the country and
have proved wonderfully attractive
and interesting to every one. With the
prospect that the Christmas season
w-Hl be a sad one for many people of
the world, the tree at this time will
be doubly welcomed. No gifts will be
given, the poor children of the city
will as in other years be taken care
of by The Argus Sar.ta Claus Fund,
but all may hear the songs and get
the Christmas spirit.
Dr. Wright Speaker.
The meeting of yesterday afternoon
was addressed by Dr. Kiui'.y Wright,
who spoke on the subject of "The air
we breathe and the air we should
breathe." Dr. Wright in introducing
her remarks spoke of fresh air as the
most essential thing of life and told
briefly of the composition of the air
that is found in dwellings. She told
of experiments that have been made
in testing the air at various places
where people congregate and of the re
sults of inoculation of the germs of
contagious diseases on guinea pigs.
The assertion has been made that
dirty air kills more people than dirty
water, dirty milk and dirty food com
bined. She spoke of the great neces
sity for ventilation in all dwellings,
public houses and street cars and of
the beneScial results that have been
obtained by fresh air treatment for
various diseases. "From the view
point of efficiency in business, fresh
air pays," Dr. Wright said. "The im
provement In comfort and general con
dition of employes has been noted to
show itself in greater regularity of
work from these workers."
Preceding the talk by Dr. Wright,
Mrs. Joseph Coldsmith read, "The
King of Boyville," by William Allen
