Cm? siihdrli good mother is plenty of POST TOASTIES says- Z, SESSION OF SCHOOL BOARD VAS BUSY 01 DECISION TO HOLD COMMENCE MENT AT HIGH SCHOOL WAS MADE; CUT IN HEALTH BOARD APPROPRIATION PROTESTED. The school board, at is regular meeting last night, decided that the high school commencement exercises shall be held at the high school audi torium; voted to wire the representa tives of Escambia county, at Talla- assee, asking them to vote agains I reduction of the health board appr prlation, and received and took u. der advisement a petition from lead ing, colored citizens asking cer i changes in the physical conditio" their schools. ' The fuU membership of the woard was preesnt at the meeting and the actions taken were unanimous. The choice of the auditorium for the commencement exercises was taken shortly after hearing representa tions Indicating that such was the wish of the. majority of the graduating class, as expressed yesterday. The decision to petition the legisla ture was taken after hearing a p de tailed report from Dr. Tatom, of the state board of health, regarding con ditions in Escambia county, Pensacola and elsewhere, and questioning the doctor on a number of points. Dr. Tatom told the board that the statutes of Florida require the exclus ion from school of any children af fected with trachoma, as it is a con tagious disease, and . if not treated leads to blindness. He said this would mean, on the enforcement of the law, the exclusion of ten per cent of the rural school children of Escambia county and nearly six per cent of the children of Pensacola, thus denying them the right of education. Ha stated that the passage of the pend ing -legislation, ' reducing the health tax, would positively mean the dis continuance of child welfare work in the state, and inability of the health board to adequately cope with any serious epidemic that might : break out. In answer to a question as to what would be done to cope with the serious j hookworm an dtrachoma situations in Escambia county, the - doctor stated that he" was taking steps to have the federal health board cooperate with the state board in establishing free clinics here. He also stated that as one means of combatting the spreaa of the hookworm disease, he had, during the past year conducted a cam paign against surface toilets, with a result of 8,000 changes. In answer to a question from Judge Beggs as to why the board of health had not used all the funds available to them the past year, the doctor re plied tat $25,000 had been set aside as a reserve fund to be used in case of epidemic . Thepetition regarding the colored schools was presented In behalf of the colored Parents and Teachers' Asso elation by Dr. S.. W. Jefferson and L. N. Williams, and suggested the fol lowing changes: "That the term of primary grade 1 to 5 be set at eight months; that schools 52 and SO be consolidated, and the vacated property sold and the funds applied to the erection of a large modern building on the south west corner of the property of No. 3 school; that to the present literary courses of school 3 a domestic science course be added for girls and a work shop With trades teacher for boys, both under competent Instruction; that the grades at school 3 be the sixth and higher only; that city ewerage be substituted for the present unsatisfac tory cesspools; that all pupils of grades 1 and S, living east of Pala fox, be required to attend the east school and all others the west schools for those grades; that the schools, especially school 3, be painted, boOi for esthetic and for preservative rea sons. The members then took the matter of the division of their appropriation under advisement. ALABAMA GAME WARDEN TALKS TO LEGISLATORS (BY HERBERT F ELK EL.) Tallahassee, May 8. J. J. Pettljohn, director of educational extension, de partment of interior, bureau of edu cation, with headquarters at Washing ton, D. C, and John H. Wallace, Jr head of the game department of Ala bama, author of the Alabama game laws and former candidate for gov ernor of that state, addressed the legis late tonight in Joint session, the form er on university extension and the latter on the preservation of game, upon which each is said to be an au thority. Mr. Pettlpohn explained what ! meant by university extension work, related his experiences in various states and urged the importance of community co-operation under direc tion of trained instructors. He said he had examined the bill now before the Florida legislature and found that It was drawn by persons having clear ideas of university extension. Whethe. or not the budget was right he could not say. Mr. Wallace, who is a lover of birds land animals and has devoted his life fourth time he had been called upon to address the Florida legislature a-d Im press upon It the importance of game preservation. He said it was the only state that wouldn't stay hitched, that this, his beloved sister state, would pass a law one session and repeal it the next. He made an eloquent ap peal for the game of the state and clearly outlined , what should be done by this legislature in the way of new laws on itJe subject at hand. DEAR FOLKS I AM a great believer in the principle of proving one's statements. There 1 are some people, you know, ; who question the value of a $20 gold piece. Therefore, : they seek some expert to test ? its value. ( I have been telling" you about I the Wilson &.Co. Certified; Ham and Bacon and-1 have not the slightest doubt that j many of you have already j made a satisfactory test of i ,v,eir excellent quality but I S u.ought I would try an ex- j periment the other evening, i I bought a Wilson Certified ! Ham and had it cooked for j dim :r. I invited several j friei.ds to take dinner .with ! me. I did not tell them that ' they were being served with I a Wilson Certified Ham. I ! did not ask them how tl-ty liked it. I knew it had be n cooked just right and I thin"-; I know how to slice ham a well as anybody I wailed to hear expressions of opin ion from my guests. One a young lady who ,3 a secretary to the National . Honor Guard of the Salva tion Army, started the tall rolling by remarking to mv daughter: "Why, Eleanor where did you buy this ham? It is the most delicious I ever ate." Then another guest, who is a Y. M. C. A secretary spoke upland said: "Isn't this ham wonderful ? Why it melts in your mouth, and what a de lightful flavor it has." And so it went, all around the table. Everybody expressed a very favorable opinion as to the quality and taste of the ham. You know a Wilson & Co. Cer tified Ham is big enough to ' serve many people. There were several people as guests at my table a couple of them being golfers, with very keen appe tites yet there was enough ham left to serve a couple of lunch eons to several people. When I told my guests finally ' that they had been served with a Wilson & Co. Certified Ham, they said to me: "We don't blame you for being bo enthus iastic about the quality -of the foods prepared by that firm. They certainly make good all of your claims about them? Then they asked me a lot - of questions about my, experience with the workers in the Wilson & Co. organization, which I answered, but they were espe cially interested in a story I told them about the Good Fel lowship Clubs which have been organized in the -Wilson & Co. plants. A recent experience with the Fellowship Club members in the New York plant gave me the cue to tell them how wonderful the workers are and how they pull together, for their own bet terment, as well as for the betterment of the business. The New Tork Fellowship Clob was just getting under way. They held an election of officers and they elected the General Manager of the New York plant as their President. There is no Aristocracy of Workers in the New York, or any other plant. Officials and the rank and file of workers mingle together on the same platform ot brotherhood and sisterhood. One of the incidents of the meeting that impressed me was that two vice presidents of the Wilson & Co. organi zation came on from Chicago to at tend and to talk to their fellow-workers. A distance of 1000 miles separating the New York and Chicago plants does not Interfere In the least with the chain of good fellowship that securely links aU workers . In these and the other plants Into a bond of mutual sympathy, cooperation and understand ing. - " This Good Fellowship idea is the back- . bone of the Wilson & Co. business and makes it possible for the 6rm to pro duce the highest and to , 1 ' dnce the highest grade of Certified Food Products and to send them every- -where with this reassuring slogan: "The Wilson Label Protects Your Table." Sincerely, William C. Frees&JTa, 250 Fifth Ave, New York city, "
