While coasting at South, Bend, Ind., she had the misfortune to dislocate all the bones in one ankle. As a result, she is not using crutches.

The programme was high class and the refreshments very fine. The latter part of the evening was spent in dancing. As an entertainer, Shiloh lodge can be voted a complete success. The dedication of the new temple at Bismark last week was one of the most impressive Masonic ceremonies i er witnessed in the state.

Continuation Schools of Home Making According to vital statistics infant and child mortality rates in this coun try are unnecessarily high, although in national wealth the nation leads other lands by a generous margin. It is es timated that infant mortality can be cut in half by reasonably intelligent care of babies and of expectant moth ers and by intelligent control of mar riage of the unfit. The American Association for the Study and Prevention of Infant Mortal ity has petitioned state boards of edu cation to urgp the appointment of Commission Continuation Schools of Home Making, to investigate condi tions and needs in their respective states and to recommend effective plans for meeting them through such continuation schools or classes. The need for more Interest in mor tality and morbidity rates is shown by the fact that many states have no laws requiring registration of birth. This is the only civilized country that does not keep an official record of births. Suitable education for home making cannot fail to create a nation wide understanding of the importance of vital statistics- The petition reads as follows: "Inasmuch as our infant mortality rate is unnecessarily high, although in national wealth we easily lead all countries, and inasmuch as the very great majority of pupils leave school before this instruction can be effective ly completed, and rarely have a later opportunity of receiving It, being often deprive^ of proper education in par ental homes by occupation, environ ment, or social conditions be it re solved that the American Association for Study and Prevention of Infant Mortality petition each state board of education to urge the appointment of commission on continuation schools of home making, to consist of men and women technically qualified in home economics, sociology-, school adminis tration and medicine, to investigate conditions and needs in the state, and to report effective plans for meeting them through such continuation schools or classes." Over 2,000,000 young women betwern 16 and 24 years of age are deseribt-d in the census as bread winners, in many places where industrial school are established for improving men's and woman's earning capacity, tlit largest demand has been for class-s In household arts for personal use. This demand has been larger than for any kind of trade instruction. Over 5,000.000 young women There is no doubt that existing re sources are wholly inadequate to pre pare for the vocation of home making, and that its neglect costs the country a heavy toll of lives annually. Infant mortality alone is estimated to cost every year approximately $34,000,000. The federal government through its department of agriculture has assist ed for several years In the establish ment of instruction in home economics throughout the country, especially irt rural district* ^enty-nine states, Cargo's Strongest Savings Institution Capital, Surplus and Undivided Profits $125,000.00 20 Broadway FARGO, IN.

HACTGART MAX STERN STEVE BIRCH R. T. BAKER B. V. MOORE L. W. SCHRUTH R. S. LEWIS JAMES KENNEDY "An Institution That Is a Community Necessity" twenty-flve since 1900, have legislated for practical education, eleven includ ing home making specifically and ap propriating funds for local assistance. It is a fair question to ask whether federal aid cannot be given continua tion schools of home making under state boards of education, since better homes and lower mortality are of na tional concern. The weak point in such Instruction has nearly always been neglect of training in principles and methods of caring for children, especially infants. The petition is accompanied by two resolutions bearing on this defect. One is that such schools should be conduct ed wherever possible in model houses or flats in addition to classroom work, and that care of children and babies be practised in connection with homes, day nurseries, kindergartens, visiting nurses, hospitals, children's summer outings, or in other practical ways. The other resolution is that special ef» fort be made to create day continua tion schools as well as or in prefer ence to evening schools, and also to secure co-operation of employers in arrangements for part-timq schools. These, suggestions are based on ex periments already under observation in ti *.«!• 0 n! wage earners and not in any kind or educational institution between 16 and 24 years of age are eligible for instru tion in home making. These are the years when home making instincts are strongest. They are the strategic years when home instincts are strongest. They are the strategic years for mak ing this instruction most profitable. Nothing given in less mature years can equal that given now. The proposed continuation schools of home making should be sharply dis tinguished in certain points. They con cern girls of marrying years, even mar ried, not children of grammar grades except as they may indirectly Influ ence elementary ideals and curriculum. They concern the well-to-do, not the poor alone the fairly educated as well as the little educated those earning wages and those not doing so. Is a JAMES KENNEDY, V. Pres. B. V. MOORE, Sec.
