The School Board has had the fol

school building in the hope that it

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC
It has been the policy of the Wolf
Point School to encourage the use of
the Public School Building for com
munity purposes. The general trend
of public opinion is toward a greater
use of public buildings for education
purposes. The logical argument is,
"Why should a $100,000.00 be put
into a building and the public get
only six hours' use out of it each
day? 1

a thing, this article is published. If
a few objectionable features can be
eliminated, the building will continue
to be used as it is at present. *1 hese

Therefore the children are to have

Permission Required
First: Organizations have used
the building without permission from
the school board. This is not to be
done, as it causes conflicts and no one
is directed to look after the building.
Second: Organizations using the
building are requested to replace
equipment removed, close windows
opened, and turn out lights that are
lowered. We are glad to pay for
turned on. Our light bill must be
necessary light, but not for unnec
essary light.
Smoking Forbidden
We have a rule of "No
Third :
Smoking in the School Building."
We have very good reasons for male
ing this rule and wish it strictly ob
served. At first this was not the
rule. We allowed smoking in one
room off of the gym. The result
was that some school boys thought
they could smoke if the men did. In
the second place, cigarettte stubs,
cigar stubs, and ashes are disagree
able to pick up even if we cared to.
There was danger that youngsters
would find these and use them,
Again, the janitor had cleaned up
once, and it menât a second sweep
ing. Tobacco scented dead air the
morning after is very disagreeable
for our students to inhale. In order
to get rid of this the superintendent
or janitor many times had to air the
building late at night after the peo
ple had left. Cigarette smoke, es
pecially, seems to permeate every
nook and crevice of the building. It
seems to travel worse than chlorine
gas. The person or persons responsi
ble for bringing each organization
must see that this rule is observed.
Otherwise, our only alternative is to
refuse admission to the organization.
It is disagreeable for the school auth
orities to have to tell people to cut
out smoking in the building.
Community Service Desirable
We want to see our present policy
of "Community Service" continue
and are thus putting the facts up to
you. The above may seem little
j things and they are, to single indi
viduals. However, when taken to
gether they assume a size large
enough to be dangerous to the policy
I of "Using our Public School Build
i ing as a Community Center." The
Board has even been so generous to
to allow the free use of the building.
I We are only requesting a little per
1 sonal service in return for these
privileges.

THE FARM BUREAU AND
THE BUSINESS MAN
(From Jan. Farm Bureau Bulletin)
The Farm Bureau, a farmers' or
ganization, organized for the pur
pose of rural betterment and not
created for personal gain, but to ren
der service, has grown to such an
extent that today it has the largest
individual membership of any farm
ers' association in North America.
Practically every agricultural county
in the 48 states of America has a
Farm Bureau organization. There is
The Farm Bureau has
a reason,
been of real benefit to the rural com
munities, having followed a plan of
sendee without entering into politics
or religion, or any other element that I
is liable to cause disagreement. Many
of the business men of the towns in |
agricultural communities are mem- |
hers of the Farm Bureau and are j
good boosters for its success.
Commercial organizations have a
live working agricultural committee, j
j or Farm Bureau committee, working j
i for better farming conditions along 1
with the Farm Bureau. In fact, in j
[ most instances, the Farm Bureau and
the Commercial Club organization
} work hand in hand for the same pur
pose.
In outlining the Farm Bureau i
program, the Montana State College
recommends to the county units the
following: "The Promotion of Cordi- j
ality between Neighbors and Square
Dealing between Town and Coun
It is in this spirit that the business
man is co-operating with the Farm i
Bureau in its activities, for their
I mutual benefit. The question has
I been asked many times; "What is the
! Farm Bureau, and what does it stand
I for?" The following is the officially
accepted definition of the Farm Bu
reau as furnished by the Montana
State Committee on organization of
Farm Bureaus.
"A County Farm Bureau is an in- |
! stitution for the development of a ,
county program of work in agricul- ;
j ture and home economics and for j
I co-operating with State and Federal
Government Agencies in the devel
opment of profitable farm manage

which farmers and their families ex
i press themselves concerning all mat
ters relating to the advancement of
I agriculture, home and community
I life."
Since we find that the Farm Bu- =
rean is endowed with the necessary |
essentials for the welfare and devel- |
opment of the agricultural commun- =
ity, it will no doubt continue to have | =
the support and co-operation of the =

Owing to the high price of feed
grains, an alarming falling off in the
production of pork in Montana and
other states is noted. The present
surplus, it is predicted, will be fol
lowed by a serious shortage.
Frank A. Vanderlip declares that
the greatest underlying reason for
high prices is excessive use of paper
money by the United States and
other countries during the war.
Paper money in 10 leading countries
