REPAIR FARM MACHINERY Now is a good time to repair the farm machinery, so as to have it in readiness for next spring and sum mer. Better results are usually harvesting Is done promptly and it secured when the spring work and saves labor. The day or more spent in waiting for extras or in having a machine repaired it should be in I use causes considerable loss in crop as well of time.—Agr. Ext. Dept. SCHOOL NOTES The standing of the pupils in the respective classes for the third month are: Seniors—Viola Olson, first Mary Helen Cassell, second Grace Erickson, third. In the junior class— Nellie Lundlng, first Dorothy Han son, second Edward Nelson and Ruth Lathrop, third. In the sophomore class—Hazel Deem, first: Frank Car penter, second Ruth Smith and Ora Trusty, third. In the freshman class —Donovan Kraabel, first Ella Lock wood, second and Dorothy Lathrop and Helen Turobull, third. Nellie Lunding and Donovan Kraabel have the highest standing in the high school the third month. A number of pupils of the high school are making substantial pro gress. This holds true especially in the lower classes and it is recognized that a line number of parents are in terested In the progress of their child ren, but there are too many pupils yet whose progress is not sufficient to in sure passing grades at the end of the semester and term. The parents of these same pupils have signed their names on the reverse side of their children's report cards pledging to require evening study when the grades fall below "V. F." It seems that the teachers are doing all they can to accelerate effort in the children, but it must be remembered that only the ex ceptional bright student is able to do all tho work required by the state course of study for graduation within the walls of the school in the legal six hour session. Are the children who are failing in their work beyond par ental control or is it negligence on the part of parents is an alternative worthy of due consideration on the part of parents in strenuous times such as we are living in now. Parents whose pupils fail in public schools often put their children into boarding schools, blaming the public schools with their teaching force for their iaefficiehcy, to find that the pu pils really succeed in their new' en vironment. There are public schools, it is true, that hampered by politics or for other reasons, do not do efficient work. And pupils entering boarding schools from these may do better work in the boarding schools than in the public school from which they en tered, but in most of these cases the cause of success in the new school must be attributed to the better results as a result of the new teacher's 1 dis position of the entire time of the! new teacher or sohool. President Nicholas Murry Butler of Columbia University, in an article written for the American Journal of Education, emphasizes the necessity of better educational equipment for the rising generation in order that it may be the better prepared to undergo the privation this generation is laying on it in the form of debts requiring many decades to pay in carrying on this expensive war in order that it (the rising generation) may be free. It is well for this generation to exert itself to the utmost in war preparation using every moment of spare time in useful work, but it is equally import ant for this generation to consider carefully the expediency of depriving the rising generation of the time and means of securing the educational equipment which will be so necessary for the assumption of the responsibili ty of paying the debt that the present generation has incurred to secure the freedom of its offspring. To the same extent that it is not wise to take the time the children should have left to them in the pur suit of an adequate preparation by way of educational equipment is it wise for parents to see to it that their time is not uselessly wasted in too much frivolty, dawdling, and the ac quisition of idle habits which will cling to the child long after it has at tained the mature age and even to the end of life. There is no substitute for consistent hard work in developing a hardy manhood. Kaiser's Hall of Fane Me. The first soldier who entered Bel gium. The soldier who torpedoed the Lusi tania.

This is largely the case with out-door sleeping. With the beginning of the act ive campaign against tuberculosis, but a few years ago, out-door sleep ing was recommended for those suf fering from tuberculosis and for others whose general physical con dition seemed to warrant it. These pioneers were looked upon with Interest by their friends and neighbors who openly expressed be lief that if they survived the expos ure (which was doubtful) they would soon tire of the experiment. As a matter of fact, there area hun dred open air sleepers today where there was one a decade ago and the habit is no longer limited to those who are in ill health. All who have tried open air sleep ing are enthusiastic about it and they constitute an ever growing group. A sleeping porch is coming to be looked upon as an essential part of the iiome. Whole families have tak en to sleeping in the open and have been so benefited by it that they would never again consider any oth er plan. Proper garb to insure warmth despite the temperature is essential. With an accessible warm room for dressing there is no reason why this invigorating and stimulating custom should not continue to grow in popularity. Many men and women, who of necessity must spend their working hours in-doors, can obtain during their leisure at night at least a por tion of the out-door air that Nature intended all of us to have. Sleeping porches can be con structed on the most modest homes ta comparatively small cost and tho •majority of instances they can be guaranteed to save their cost in doctor bills. The change from sleeping in closed, warm rooms to out-door sleeping must be brought about gradually, giving Nature time to meet the new conditions. The very old or very young demand more protection than the adult in the prime of life. Bureau of Public Information. University of North Dakota.
