Accolades to Be Held in All
Schools at End of V Crusade. Through the agency of Maj. B. J. Lloyd, ot the Un'ied States Health Service, accolades will be held in prac tically every 5chool in the country when the second annual tournament of the modern health crusade como> to an end this school year. This was the statement made a' the National Tuberculosis Association offices where the crusade was- organ lied, and where the new tournament was announced. The tournament, held simultaneously all over the coun try, for fifteen weeks begins with the opening of the term this fall. Last year, the first in which the annual jousts with disease took plac*. found many "pages." ??squires" and "knights" ready to be given their! titles of knights banneret, the high eat degree of honor to be received by crusaders. In many cities and towns ascolades were held and on the western coast Majojr Lloyd per sonally gave the four "blows" t? hundreds of "sir knights" or bovs itnd girls who had faithfully perform ed eleven?health chores for the en tire tournament and so became knights banneret. At the capitot in Washington tha largest accolade of the crusade held with Vice President Marsha!! acting as 'league master and confer ring the honors on the candidates. The steps of the capitol building were filled with children who had fought a winning fight against disease. There are 3.000.000 children in the cruaade. and it is estimated that more than 75 per cent of them will w'n honors in the tournament. By com pleting the eleven health chores tor the fifteen weeks tl^y will not oniy receive their titles, but will win badges and pins for tfce lesser ranks of page, and squire^ and gold ami silver buttons for the ranks of knignt and knights banneret. They also win banners showing their class has been 100 per cent successful in the crusade. This iii one of the vital phases of the fight against the White Plague, which will be directly effected by t:ie success of the country-wi^e cam paign of education now being con ducted by the National Tuberculosis Association and its 1.000 affiliated state and Christmas seal sale from December 1 to December 10. when more than $6,500,000 must be raised to carry out completely the intensive program for the coming year.
