There's quality in the fabric? quality in the hand tailoring'; quality in the fine silk thread; quality in the etyle. Most of them made by Schlosa Bros.' & Co., the famoufi Young Men's tai lors loaders in style for al most half a century. We fit the older men and stout men too! Don't imagine that be cause most of pur illustra tions show young men wearing our clothes we haven't much of anything for you older men. Quite the contrary. We have a big line of "conserv ative" models for those who want something a little more dignified than the snappy, breezy types that the young fellows fancy and mu3t have. Though, for the matter of that, most of oar young men's models are entirely suitable for any well-set up, clean-cut man, regard less of whether he's twenty or sixty. See Large Window Display.

Distinctions are not always easy to make. Really more ' than these do not see well. Note nearly 2-5 have bad teeth. The folowing modified rules as recom mended by the committee of the Ameri can Pifbllc Health Association on Medical Inspection of Schools, may very aptly be applied to the situation in Pensacola: 1. A system of medical Inspection of schools be established. 2. This system to be under the control of the health department. 8. Work consist of (a) Exclusion of contagious cases; (b) Detection of phys ical defects. 4. Maximum . number of pupils 3,000 under one doctor and one nurse. 5. Clinics to be established under con trol of health department for (a) Purpose of correcting physical defects; (b) Pur pose of treatment of defective teeth den tal. (Only for those unable to pay.) 6. Nurses devote whole time be train edon adequate b alary. It Is pretty generally known In this community that definite concerted efforts have been on foot since early in February to bring about conditions which would make for better health. The final plan was to have a full functioning health de partment which could sustain the weight of routine matters of sanitation as well as bear the brunt of an emergency like an epidemic or disaster. A medical officer of the U. S. Public Health Service was detailed to work n conjunction with the state , and local authorities to this end. '., There were no 'provisions made . for school Inspection. But as work in the schools Is a recog nized means of approaching the health problems of a. community, plans were im mediately laid to handle the neglected Situation. ' Some time in March the board of educa tion and county commissioners Jointly had employed a social worker' ror the rural schools of the county. She was to assist the- district health officer who agreed to examine all the rural school children. The following work was to be effected as indicated. The work began promptly and physical inspections were completed In this way.' This in conjunction with the city work gives a fair idea of the physi cal health of all children attending' school in, Escambia county. The physical Inspection cards provided by , the state board were distributed to the schools In the city limits. The teach ers filled out the general data regarding the children. During April the medical officer examined nearly 1,200 children. During May when the work had to be rushed owing to the close of the session, a physician detailed from the Child Wel fare bureau of the state board of health completed the work by examining aboilt 1,200 more pupils. Ladies volunteering under the Bed Cross assisted as clerks. ' The co-operation shown by the school board and superintendent of schools was all that could be asked for. The princi pals and teachers when they understood the serious import and high desirability of the examinations assisted materially in obtaining the data necessary for record. The children as a rule conducted them selves very well. The following work is the most essential and specialized branch of any health de Iai'tment . and is .' called public health nursing. It should be under the direction of the health officer so that all activities can be corrected and synchronized. But it should be under the immediate super vision of an experienced nurse. Her minimum requirements should be that she is a graduate nurse and has had further more a year or more of field training. She may have obtained this in any of several, ways, as by special instruction courses or by actual daily work in the field under competent heads. ' v It wMl be a much larger task in Pen sacola to begin the work and organize a eystem from the bottom than in some pjaces where work has been going on and an understanding on the "part of- of ficials and the public has been developed. For this reason care will have to be ex ercised in selecting a competent nurse to start off. There are arguments both for and against the employment of a local nurse, without any special field nursing training, compared to bringing in a nurse from some other locality with the ade quate preparataion. This must be settled and will be shortly by tnose directly in terested and involved. At present a notice is being sent to the rarents of each child with a defect. This oolld be sent in the mails, but it hati been demonstrated" in otner places that not 25 per cent of such notices result in any action for the benefit of the child. "Letting well enough alone"' is probably more responsible than the lack of money to pay for help. However, the Red Cross aids are to deliver the notices In person. These ladles will give the personal touci, and in many cases be able to persuade the parents to take some action by explaining the r.ature and possible bad consequences of the trouble. But a trained nurse wiTI be able to go further than any of these for the reason that her education has been along the lines that teach her how to give aid for physical 1113. Parent tcachers meetings and other congregating groups give opportunity for talks and demonstrations on the work. The home service department of the Red Cross Is undertaking to forward this work right now when needed. Mention has been made of aid rendered by mem bers In school work. The question of es tablishment of clinics and of - obtaining aid In the form of medical treatment for those unable to pay partly or completely, Is a very Immediate one. It will not be neglected It is quite certain.- SENATE HAD TO ; SWALLOW PILL IT ROLLED FOR HOUSE During; its closing hours the houss put one over on the senate and the latter body bucked Itself to death over the matter, not caring to swallow the pill it had prepared for the house. Reference is here made to the dispo sition of the primary bill.-which was passed by the senate and then killed by that body. Much time was taken up in both ends of the capitol working; on the primary bill introduced by Senator Cash. The house added a great many amendments. The most important of these was the Striking" out of the cam paign book provided for in the Bry an primary law, and making the board of county commissioners elective from the county, at large. It went over to the senate, during the afternoon of the day before ad journment. The senate concurred In Lemon Juice For Freckles Girl! Make beauty lotion at home for a few cents. Try It!

"When it came back to the house a few hours before the time set for final adjournment, Mr. Edge, of Lake county, explained that he did riot like the failure of the senate to accept these amendments, but tha't the only chance to get the single primary sys tem abolished at this session was to accept the bill just as it was. - Following the suggestion of Mr. Edse. the house receded from all the ..monts which It had proposed CUiiviluu'tv4vw - and which the senate had declined to concur in. Ordinarily, there would , have been no more to do but have the bill en rolled and signed by the officers ef the two houses and send It down to the governor, where It was generally believed it would- be vetoed. But the senate saved the governor the trouble. It took the bill up and filibustered on it until the time for adjourning sine die.
