IN EIGHTY COUNTIES'
The news of the Columbus Centennial and Home Coming
Week will go into every nook Mid corner of the Stale of
This is made possible through the cordial co-operation of
eighty young ladies from the student body of the Missis
sippi State College for Women.
Through the Publicity Committee, arrangements have
been made for a personal representative in each county in
the State this summer.
These young women have been picked from the student
body of the college for their qualities of leadership and
for their energy and enthusiasm.
It will be their duty to see that every former student
and graduate of the college is invited to come back to the
institution and to Columbus for the big birthday party.
The college will have an important part in the celebration,
and it is expected that thousands of former students of
the institution will come "home" for the celebration.
Columbus and the Centennial Committee are grateful to
these young women for their co-operation. It will be an
important factor in giving publicity to the celebration, and
every nook and corner in the State will hear the story of
the Centennial and Home Coming in Columbus this fall.
It is a splendid plan of co-operation, and the following
motto might be applied to it : " Columbus for the College;
the College for Columbus; both for Mississippi."

As a fod, milk is vital. It is used in every home in
this community. This city's milk supply comes from many
sour; from creameries, from small dairies, and from
private herds. It is distributed in cans, bottles, and in
The public has little or no insurance against milk infec
tion. There is no adequate (inspection at the sources of
supply of the manner in which the pilkis handled or the
animals from which the milk comes.
X noted authority the other day slated that 40 per
cent of the tuberculosis among children in tiiis country
tcday was of the bovine type traceable to milk from
tubercular infected cattle.
One trouble with milk is, that its quality cannot be
easily determined. It requires laboratory work to deter
mine its purity and its wholesomeness. No mere ordi
nance will insure its purity. AU milk in the can looks
alike to the purchaser, whether it be clean or full of
There mut be regulation, strictly enforced, to secure

It wou'd be useless merely to insist upon a milk in

j With Forest Protection Week proclaimed by President
Harding for May 22nd, the Amerioan Forestry Association
of Washington issues a statement for use in the public
' schools that week. The statement is also aimed at tourists
'and campers, and points out what to do ih case of a fire in
!the woods. The Forest Guides and the Boy Scouts arc
also urged to spread the message, which is as follows :.
Never drop lighted matches or smoking materials in the
woods or fields, or along the roads, without putting out
the match absolutely, or stamping the "smoke" into the
Never build an open fire for any purpose near the
woods or fields when the woods are dry"
Never leave any fire until it is out. Drench it with
water or cover it completely, with stones and clrt.
Never pass even the smallest fire unnoticed. Put it out
yourself, or see that a fire warden, the owner, or some
responsible resident starts for it before you leave.
Fire travels with the wind always. Stop its front first,
and put out the sides and rear later. Sand or soil will
smother it, beating will kill it, but water is always best.
Throw water or soil along the line; do not dump it in one
place. Beat toward the fire to avoid spreading it. '
Always work slowly and deliberately in fighting fire So
that every motion counts and your energy is not wasted.
The forest fire loss for the last five' years' reaches a
stajrKering total of $85,000,000, so themerican .Forestry
Association tells us, and measures to help stop fire are
incorporated in the Snell Forest Policy Bill now before
