Gingham dresses are in evidence among the high school girls, hut springtime is the reason, ratherjthan economy.,,1 ; "It's a -cinch we're going'to wear overalls." one enthusiastic member of the H. S. O. club said this morning. "You see we fellows most have to be cause we can't afford new clothes and our old ones are wearing out. Then any fellow enjoys being able to loaf on the steps or other dusty places without having to think of being care ful of clothes." ' The manual training instructors, J. Hoehner and A. H. Winters, are ultra fashionable for they were easily the first ones on the high sohool to be noticed wearing overalls. In fact, they have worn them at their work for sev eral years. Fashion, practicability and economy are happily combined for them, they consider.

Each asked for a hearing by the board separately from the hearing to be granted officials of eighteen rail unions. Chairman Barton of the board over ruled the protest of Doak of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen against acceptance of the yardmen's requests. Barton said the board could not refuse to receive requests for ac tion but that later it would decide whether it should hear the "outlaws" separately.

If you are one of the few who try to make the most of your hair, remember that it is not advisable to wash the hair with any cleanser made for all purposes, but always use some good shampoo. Tou can enjoy the very best by getting some -can-throx from your druggist, dissolve a teaspoonf ul in a cup of hot water: This makes a full cup of shampoo liquid, enough so it is easy to apply it to all the hair instead of Just the top of the head. Dandruff, excess oil, and dirt are dissolved and entirely disappear. Your hair will be so fluffy that it will look much heavier than it .is ' Its luster and softness w 11 also delight you, while the stimulated scalp gains the health which insures hair growth.
