THIRTY-SIXTH YEAR. NORTH PLATTIi, NfiU., OliTODKR 1, 1920. x No. 76 HOME NURSING COURSES BEGIN LLNCOLN COUNTY CHAPTER STARTS CLASSES UNDER TRAINED RED CROSS' NURSE. Tho Homo Servlco Section of the Lincoln County Chapter of tho Ameri can Red Cross is arranging for a courso of instruction In Homo Nurs ing. This series of lessons will be given by Miss "Welch a trained nurse and will consist of fifteen different class periods, two being hold each week. Each lesson is. one and onc - half hours long. Tho purposo of tho courso is (1) to glvo elementary knowledgo of personal hygieno and household sanitation, (2) to prevent incipient illness in the homo from becoming sorious and to give instruc tion in tho causes, symptoms and pre vention of contagious! llncsses, (3) to follow tho ordors of your physician and coopcrato intelligently in tho care of children, convalescents, chronics and tho aged. The enrollments In these' classes commenced yesterday and will con tinue through today. They aro being received at tho Red Cross headquar ters in tho Federal building by Miss Sarah Kelly, Secretary of the Home Service Section and by Miss Welch. Every woman in Lincoln County is el igible to membership and should en roll but on account of having only one instructor every woman will not be able to enroll so tho first names only will bo assured of a place. Tho Red Cross is taking up this work because it was found by tho physicians who conducted tho ex aminationof drafted men, that one man out of overy'threc was physically' un- fit for servlco and the causo of this unfitness was due to carelessness or ignorance in almost every case. Sta ti'sticsshow that ono hundred people rtio each year in the average Ameri can community of 25000, whose lives could bo saved if our homes had a better understanding of preventable diseases. Every woman can and should play an important part in building up the health and vigor of tho community ,and hero is tho op portunity for some to prepare for this work. It will make for a better and bigger North Platte. HARD TDITS SOCIAL TO BE HELD TONIGHT.

DIRECTORS MAKE STATEMENT AllOl T THE LINCOLN COUNTY FA IB. Utlitor Tribune, City. Dear sir: It seems as thru tho columns of tho Telegraph that Mr. Co'atos, Proat lent of tho Lincoln County Fair As sociation, hiis beon unjustly criticised for certain things that ho did do and did not do. As a matter of fact tho Fair this year was handled by an ex ocutlvo committee entirely, each mem ber looking after certain things. In fSc tho program was arranged by tho executive committee, but on nc count of tho prevailing high winds it wag Impossible for the freo nt trnctlon to bo given, nnd It also cur tailed the aoroplane stunts that wcro to be pulled ofT. Tho executtvo com mittee which wKs in charge, and which aro willing to assumo a portion of tho criticism, if thoro bo nny. Is composed of tho following men F. C. Plolsticker, J Q. Wilcox, O. H. Thoeleckc, C. II. Walters and J. E. Sebastian. Thcroforo In this Instance Mr.. Coatos was not to blamo any more than anyone of this committee. Wm. Maloney, W. J. O'Connor and n. D. Blrgo woro on tho advertising com mittee and aro willing to assumo tho responsibility of this department. When Mr. Coates look tho Presi dency of tho Fairtho Association was In dobt $6,783. Sinco ho has been In office they built fences that cost $1, 27C, buildings that cost $2,172 and spent $3,580 on tho track, making a total of $13,800, and nt tho present timo: the Association i8 hut $3,000 In debt, which wo think is very credit able on tho part of Mr. Coatos to take tho Fair with $C7S3-indootodness pay ing tho samo off In full and making tho nbove needed Improvements. Tho executivo committeo when they were arranging for tho Fair, were in formed by the City Officials that they would not bo permitted to have a carnival company on tho grounds, 8o of dllirso did not get a merry-go-round, tferris wheel, etc. Tho races and Hart's band woro good, tho farm exhibits worn good and took big money at tho State Fair. Howover thero woro not so many entries In tho agricultural department ns there should havo been. But Mr. Olson did his best and wo congratulate him. Summing it nil up, the Fair was not so had and wo aro still boosters and not knockers. , Now in regard to next year's Fair. Wo feel that next year w0 should havo a larger farm and agricultural exhibit, that will take first money at tho Stato Fair. It was done once and can bo done again for this part of tho Fair Is instructive and educational and should not bo neglected. Theso things well carried out. together with somo freo attractions and a fine lot of horsd racing will give us a real country fair next year. Wo should also havo a carnival company with merry-go-round, forris wheel, etc., so thnt tho boys and girls will not bo disappointed. Wo recommend having auto races on our good half mllo track say July 4th and havo a real race moqt on that dato, or somo other ap propriate date. Mr. Coatos expected tho executive committeo to handle tho Fair and ho is not to blamo any more than tho members of tho commlttoo. Ho work ed hard on it and also spent over two weeks of hia time, besides considor blo money In holping to securo North PIatto'8 present avintion flold for tho U. S. mall, which wo bellovo will bo a big help for North Platto. Therefore, in closing wo might say that wo as a committeo and as bus iness mon still 'romain as boosters and not knockers, oven tho it cost us monoy. Wo "stand for a bigger North Platto and bettor and greater Lincoln County at nil times. Sincerely, EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. : :o: niURCII SOCIETY HOLDS ITS AN- .VITAL MEETING WEDNESDAY.
