Vaughan, which was due to illness, Miss Karr took occasion to thank the retiring officers for their co-opera tion and for the vrery excellent aid they had always given the school, and on behalf of the principal ex tended to them a most hearty and sincere invitation to continue the Spast favors. We regret to note that Miss Vaughan, our ever faithful principal, is detained at home through illness.

The regular Tooth-brush Drill was e held Thursday morning. Jan. 9, all the children of the lower grades par ticipating. One day a child was asked if he brushed his teeth daily. He an k swered, "Yes, when the tooth lady . comes." We hope that his is not * usually the case, but that our chil a dren are practicing daily the lessons for the care of the teeth, which are i- taught by a competent nurse. The Project Method in teaching is t' being followed in several depart s. ments in our school, and we hope Is that the results will be beneficial to s our pupils in their daily work.

B. REYNOLDS CanbeEasily., Financial Expert, Making In vestigation for Senate Fi nance Committee, Says New System is Feasible. The American Valuation plan ot assessing import duties, as provided in the pending Fordney tariff bill. Is possible of administration and the only feasible means of compiling a tariff that will afford adequate protection to the American manufacturer. ac cording to J. B. Reynolds. former as sistant Secretary of the Treasury and now director of valuation investiga tions for the Senate Finance Commit tee.. "There is nothing uncanny, nothing mysterious and nothing at all of a tremendously unusual or out-of-the way nature about American Valua tion," Mr. Reynolds says. -Today, ~ when imports are brought into this country they are assessed on the basis of the value in foreign countries. The - Invoice is presented and on that the Importer puts his value. Invoices Practically Worthless 'These invoices-to give them all the credit that they are entitled to-in the g average case are worth a little less. " perhaps, than the paper on which they are pripted. Now, I say. that b after a long experience In handling invoices, and by that I mean that the certification that the consul abroad has to make amounts to nothing. The tn- in voices go through on the day before o a ship sails; they go into a consular o office in any part of the world where t there is a large business between that I country and the United States. You It have a perfect string of people filing In with invoices to get the invoice off f en the next boat with the automatic I afmxing of a stamp. It is a matter of I a clerit signing the consul's name. And a all that it does is to certify that that invoice is on the right colored paper. I Is made out in the right legal form. c and nothing else. t 'There is a proposition now put up a against that. It seems to me it Is a t very simple one. Instead of putting a the duties, assessing the ad valorem I duties which are duties assessed on the value of goods, on the foreign or Invoice value, the proposition is to put 4 these duties on the value of the goods i In the United States. a *-The value of the goods in the United a States is not an unknown quantity. It can be found. All the books, all the papers of the manufacturers. the a Jobbers and the sellers of every kind. are at the disposal of the Government. 1 Prices are known in this country. i We are dealing with an absolutely I known and certaln proposition and 1 the whole Idea is simply that where i there is an ad valorem rate of duty I on goods, we do not try to assess this , on the foreign value, which Is largely is progressing nicely. Both vegeta bles and flowers have been planted. and we hope our spring garden will be even better than in former years. I Miss .Heitmeier and Miss Berger's classes gave a party Friday after noon, Jan. 13. The purpose was to purchase necessary material for the I class rooms. It was a great success, as a very pleasing program had been arranged and many varieties of re freshments were sold. The follow ing children took part in a minstrel show: Lelia Burns. Lillian Jean freau, Elvera Sutherland, Dorothy Babin. Clara Brias, Aline Le Blanc, Edward Hibben, Landers Withering, Floyd Wattigny, William Clsen. Francis Walters. John Culver. There was a doll drill and a Mother Goose drill by the 3-A and 4-B classes. An other feature of the program was a song by Margaret Duffy. The Mothrs' Club met on Thurs day. An interesting meeting was enjoyed. Mr. Lindsey addressed the mothers on the subject of thrift. The club purchased a mimeograph, which will lighten the work of the teachers. The faculty wish to thank the moth ers for their thoughtfulness and ever ready helpfulness. A committee was appointed to visit the Commissioner of Public Safety to make a complaint of the violation of traffic laws near the school. The 55-inch team played a game of indoor baseball at the Y. M. C. A. on Thursday afternoon. 'ihe oppos ing team came from S. J. Peters School. While our team was unsuc cessful, they played an excellent game, being matched against the city's champion school in this work. The team is composed of W. Babin, i captain; W. Clasen, U. Caimi, N. Ford, J. Kennedy, W. Clasen, B. North, J. Culver, F. Wattigny. P. Jones; C. Masholder, substitute; E. Hibbens, substitute, R. Peres, sub* stitute. The following children were per fect in spelling all week: Third B Girls: Ursula Jeansonne, Ruby Web ert, P. Wllls.

McGarr, Clifford Mc Intosh, Junior MoNeely, B. Olsen. In a spelling review in the 3-B class Thelma Sanborn made the highest average and Patrick Kennalr scordd second. Abbie Smith's language paper was posted before the clas for neatness, penmanship and cor rectness. For good hehavior and scholarship, story books were given to Maria Louisa Agular and Louise Essinger in the first grade. BLLUVVIL NOT.

Reynolds., Former Assistant See. retary of the Treasury, Favors American Valuation guess work, but upon the Americas value of the goods that is known in the t'nited Sates. and It is capable of being found out. A Feasible Plan "The American valuation plan. In my judgment, is absolutely possible of administration, and also feasible of enforcement. There is nothing in It that cannot be carried on after a little practice just as well as the present law is. "The idea that It is Impossible to find out what the American value of a piece of goods, is when you are sup posed to find out the foreign value seems, to me preposterous. "There is one more thing to be kept In mind. The only way to take care of depreciated currency at the present time and to make the manufacturer safe and able to carry on his business under depreciated currency, is to put aside the need for the manufacturer to wonder in what currency the duty will be assessed on the goods with which he has to compete, and wonder one day what it is going to be the next. He must have it fixed on the one stable thing in the Onancial world. and that is United States mosty. This Is something that does not change and will not change. And the only way to have stable duties, the only way to have duties that will say what they mean and mean what they say. in the tariff law, s to have a duty that when it depends on the value of the goods it depends upon its Amer ican value and not on the value that It has In a foreign country that Schanges from day to day sad bfrm hour to hour." DEFERRED TAXES URGED AS AID TO REFORE.,TRATION. Lumbermen Drafting Board Program For Conservation of Timber. New Orleans.-Deferred taxation. legislation, increased education, fire prevention and government and state assistance are the chief means by which the timber lands of the nstioa may be preserved for posterity, accord ing to W. H. Sullivan of the Great Southern Lumber Company, Bogalua, La.. and Henry E. Hardtner of the Urania Lumber Company, Urania. La., two of the South's foremost lumber men, who were among the two score leaders of the industry attending the initial hearing of the forestry policy committee of the United States Cham ber of Commerce at the New Orleans Association of Commerce. The hearings were for the purpose of determining a definite national pol icy for restoring the 85.000.000 acres of denuded timber lands in the varloud sections of the country. No definite policy or program was decided upon during the first sessions, but from all indications a final plan of action will be determined by the end of the hearing. The experimental work in Louisiana received much praise and the proposed program of the state undoubtedly will be used in modeling the future policy of the national industry L1 its attitude towards reforestration.
