schools have been interesting them
selves in The -Reformer 's plan for
collecting and selling old newspapers
and magazines for the benefit of the
playground fund was indicated this
morning when school opened after
the Christmas vacation.
There was hardly a room in which
at least a few pupils did not bring in
some papers and magazines, and
many more were expected this after
noon. One youngster proudly in
formed his teacher that his grand
father had an accumulation of about
1,.'0U pounds of old papers which
were going to lie turned over to the
boy to help tho cause along.
As soon as possible arrangements
for a regular collection of the accu
mulation of papers and magazines
from the schools will be made. It
is probable that the first collection
will take place on' Thursday or Fri
day of this week, and thereafter the
papers and magazines will be
weighed and paid for at regular in
tervals. The Reformer will publish
the standing o the different grades
