AIDING THE BODY AIDS THE MIND. The Standard has advocated the public school lunch and 16 pleased to ncte that where the experiment has been tried nothing but success has been met with. Colliers for this week has an ex cellent article on the subject from which the following Is an extract: "The real point of this 6tory might be more vividly illustrated by photo graphs, not of public-school lunches, but of the children who go home and don't get any lunch "That little army of Americans In the making, marching In, heads up two by two. with their own band splintering the air with "Row! Row ! Row!" or "Waitln' for the Robert E Lee" this school Is in the heart of the Italian quarter, on New York's east 6ide The. fathers of these chil dren were of course away at work, often the mother is away too. or If not, hard at wok, perhaps, on piece work at home You can Imagine some of the smallest, like the Utile girls on the right-hand end of the front row, toddling home on a cold Winter! day, or through the rain, I climbing the dark tenement stalrB to hlft for themselves. Even If the mother is at home and there is enough to eat, ghe may have neither the time nor understanding to pre pare a proper meal, and the chances c.re that there Is nothing nut bread and coffee or tea. "The majority of such children as tbcee have tea or coffee once a day, and probably a third or them to judge from the figures or the volun teer committee, which has taken the matter up In New York City and berved experimental lunches in sev eral schools have tea or coffee more than once. If they are fortunate enough to have a few pennies, "lunch" often means nothing morp nourishing than the "Jawbreakers" or iicorice sticks sold by pushcarts and cheap candy shops. A very consid erable portion of them come back unfit for work in the afternoon. "Such conditions are so typical that experiments In public-school lunches are now being tr;ea In some I forty-five, cities In this country In many European cities such ventures I DECORATIONS For Fashion Show, Auto mobiles and Floats ON DISPLAY AT I I 2564 Washington Ave. Call Early 1! I HERCULES I I SCHOOL SHOES are made on lasts that agree with growing feet that allow children to walk correctly. 1 j HERCULES SCHOOL SHOES are the choice of parents who care to keep their chil dren's feet healthy and happy. They are fine wearing ahoes for every occasion. I i CLARKS' m have passed the experimental stage long since. in high schools, such lunches are. of course, no novelty. In many small cities rMiere there is no danger of Insufficient good, the ff.ln in time, dlsclpllno and general efficiency from having a warm meal Served at noon has led to the estab lishment of a more or less elaborate school lunch. Women's clubs often take charge of the work, contribut ing: their services and selling the food, generally, at a slight profit; or the lunch of the latter 60rt in some of the New York City high schools. "The lunches started by the volun teer committee mentioned here are of a different kind. They are Intended to combine a maximum of nourish ment with a minimum of cost to give a sufficient meal to those who have only a few pennies, Instead of the ten or fifteen cents generally spent for high-school lunches. The committee s purpose was merely to demonstrate the need and the prac ticability of the public-school lunch in such neighborhoods as It picked out, with the hope that, having so demonstrated it the city would take ever the work. The demonstration Is complete in the Judgment of the volunteer workers and of the teach ers in whose schools It hae been tried nrd the city, although declining as yet to take over the work, has given the committee enough money to start four central kitchens from which six teen schools can be served. "In 1911-12 the volunteer commit tee served 174.190 lunches to an av erage of 1500 children a day, in sev en schools For these lunches where each dish cost a penny, the children pa.'d $5,730.36. This covered the cost of the food itself, but the cost of service and administration made a deficit of slightly over a cent on each lunch. "The principal dish at these lunches is a thick soup, made with spill peas, beans, macaroni, lentils, or meat and vegetables and the soup has to be carefully adapted to the nationality of the school, for these children, not having enjoyed a very wide experience In the matter of food, are likely to consider Ined ible things they have not encounter ed at home. The soup costs a cent, and everyone Is supposed to take It Two slices of bread or three graham crr.ckers are also a cent. These make the piece de resistance. Then there Is hot cocoa at a cent a cup, and a "penny tabic" where a bit of salad, fancy cakes and cookies, sweet choc olate like that found In slot machines r nrl ciicrar.rnntAH annloo r,n a cHrLr (a curious but vastly popular des sert) may also be bought for a cent Three cents, judiciously applied, will buy a tolerable luncheon and an ex cellent one when the children bring their own bread from home and 5 centa invested In soup, bread, cocoa, and cakes enough for a man. In deed, the lunches are sufficiently at tractive to be taken by the teachers, generally, In the schools where they have been tried. "Providing for children who cannot afford to pay for lunches Is one of the embarrassment encountered Anything like visible discrimination would be fatal, and the objection to "charity" on the part of parents whose children can afford to pay, however little 6pare cash there be at home, makes It necessary that the lunch be at least nominally pelf sustaining. It Is, so far as food Is concerned will be even more so with the central kitchens and If ev ery child spent 5 centa, the cost of service could be met as well. Thus far the committee has maae up the deficit, and In a few cases lunch tickets have been bought for partic ularly needy children by the or ganized charity societies. Several children In each school earn their lunches by helping to serve. "The Improvement in tne physical condition of children who were sul len or stupid during the afternoon session, before the lunches were tried, leads their teachere to believe that the school lunch, simple as It is, Is their most substantial meal of the day, Its advantages on rainy or very cold days for there are court yards in the schools sufficient for exercise are obvious enough. The prospect of discontinuing it Is view ed by the teachere In whose schools It has been tried with something like consternation." oo INCREASE IN TYPHOID FEVER One doctor in the city has nine cases of typhoid. Other physicians perhaps have an equal number. Those fine cases are more than the entire state of Utah should have, but we have predicted that this fall Ogden ) f would suffer a typhoid outbreak ow ing to the contaminating of the wa ter supply of the city by campers along Ogden river. With the city forced tn draw nearly all its water from the river, following the rains which have washed the excrement of ten thousand people Into the stream, nothing lees might be expected. No blame attaches to any one, hut It Is a condition from which this city must escape at the earliest possible time The state board of health bulle tin for August has Just been received We note there wero 128 cases of typhoid In Utah, of which 41 wore In Salt Lake county. When we con sider typhoid as a preventable die -ease, that Is a severe Indictment If the epidemic Increases in this city, the people should seek to be Immunized by vaccination as prac ticed in the army. Those who do not trust In the ef ficacy of vaccination should boll all their drinking water. oo A SOMEWHAT BELATED WAIL. The Salt Lake Telegram Is In dis tress because congress 16 attempting to revise tho tariff That paper Is opposed to Democratic politicians, without expert training, proceeding tn change the tariff schedules, and makes these "mments. "If a man wanted a watch cleaned he would hardly take it to a black smith. "If h wanted suit of clothes made he would hardly apply to a cheese maker "If he wanted his plow repaired he would hardly call In a schoolmaster ' For forty years the editor of the Telegram has been praising this rerj thing H has rejoiced that his pnr ty has made politics out of tariff and won victories on that Issue. Not until tariff ceased to be a party tenet by which to conjure, did he see a great light and discover thnt tarifl revision should be in the keeping 'jf experts freed from political bias or the corrupting Influence of a Munu facturers Association or others with sinister motives Tariff should never have been made an Issue in American politics It has been the most demoralizing force In our government. It ha6 been a standing bid for those seeking unfair advantages and special privileges to throw their strength to one side or the other in our political struggles; it has thoroughly commercialized our politics and bolstered up the most eorrupt element In national affairs; it has Invited the expenditure of great sums of money to carry elections. And yet tariff is essential to our industrial growth and national wel fare. But from the first the applying of Import duties should have been in the hands of a commission riuallfied to deal with the problems Involved. o SMALLPOX, WHOOPING COUGH AND MEASLES Of twenty-seven counties In this sttte, seventeen are now free from smallpox. Including Weber county. This is the first time since the Spanish -American war, when fn epidemic of the disease swept Utah, that so large an area of the state has been without the afflic tion. There remain twenty-one cases In Salt Lake county and seventeen cases In Summit county, with from one to nine ca6eB in the other eight counties, of which Box Elder has live. Before winter, which is the period of greatest danger of a spread of the disease, extraordinary' efforts should be made to stamp out the contagion. The state board of health should search out every' case and Inquire as to the arrangements made for com pletely isolating the afflicted. The same investigation should be made for whooping cough and measles There were 151 cases of whooping cough In Utah in August and thirty six cases of measles. Utah county has forty-four cases or whooping 'cough. Thl6 Is one of the mo6t fa tal of children's diseases ann should be controlled before cold weather . nr INCREASING THE SUPPLY OF GASOLINE. A special dispatch was sent out from Flndlay. Ohio, the first of the week, announcing the discovery of a new process by which the Standard Oil is able to Increase the amount of gaBollne recoverable from crude oil. The process Is said to Involve a new method of making gasoline, since it breaks up the hydro-carbons of pe troleum Into the combinations needed, condensing them under pressure It Is predicted that the new fuel soon will appear on the market at 20 per cent less than the present price of gasoline. Seventy-if Ive per cent of crude oil can be converted by the process Into gasoline. This will be good news to the own ers of automobiles and motor driven machines, as the price of gasoline has been approaching almost a prohlbl tlve point for a majority of motor owners. There are now 1,000,000 automobiles In use In the United States, which is 700,000 more than there were In 19K) At this great rate of increase, the automobile Industry was rapidly over taking the supply of gasoline obtain able from the limited production or the higher grades of crude oils With this discovery, the automobile busi ness can go on expanding without danger of reaching a point where the big oil refineries can not meet the demand for motor fuel.

E Barren, H. W. Potter. Charles Greener, E E Young and A. G Hansen COAL CONTRACT FOR SCHOOLS HELD UP Formal notice was given to the bord of education at Us meeting last night, that a writ of garnishment had been filed in the courts bj tho Ecc'es Lumber company against Con tractor P. A. Isaacson who was awarded the contract for remodeling the Grant school. Architect Leslie Hodgson reported that the estimatc3 show that Isaacson will make a good profit on the work Acting on the report, the board moved that Presi dent Hyrum Pingree call upon the claimants and acquaint them with th. fact, believing that when It is learned the contractor has a tidy amount coming the writ will be withdrawn, When the minutes of last mooting wore read, the board decided that the contract for the year's supply of coal had not been given to the Utah Fuel company but that a sample oar had been ordered from the company to b given a te6t. If the coul Is satis factory, the board will discu68 the awarding of the contract at the next meeting. Although a delegation of High school students presented a petition signed by 145 boys, asking for dri'l to be resumed, the board did not con aider the matter. Ab the number of petitioners is the usual number that desire drill and as the question had been fully considered when It was de cided to do away with the subject. It is not probable that drill will be re instated In the curriculum. Among the appropriations made were one for $25 to pay Ogden's share In the coming district school conven tion, one for $60 to put an exhibit at the State fair, and an appropria tion for buying kindergarten mate rial. A bill for $1500, covering work doDti by the Ogden Plumbing & Heating company on the Grant school, was i allowed with several other smaller I bills. AGENT SENT TO CHINA Washington. Sept. 25.
