24 2 col—camp meeting not favored by Williston's minister? Editor The Graphic—In your issue of last week an announcement ap peared of a "Big Interdenominational Camp Meeting" to be held in this city in the near future. I presume religious "I. W. W's." have the same right to enter any community that in dustrial "I. W. W.'s." have. How ever, they of all others, should make no announcements that border on false pretenses and mislead the pub lic. This article gives the impres sion that this "Interstate Camp Meet ing Association" is an organization recognized by the religious bodies named and that the meeting here is in cooperation with the local church es. Nothing could be further from the truth. The President of this or ganization wrote me last March in this matter. As their meetings are conducted on the emotional, second blessing holiness line, I refused .to have anything to do with it. As the HOLD GRAIN LAW 600D-FEE LARGE EVERY FEATURE HELD CONSTI TUTIONAL WITH EXCEPTION OF THE FEE SECTION Bismarck, N. D., Aug. 21.—The su preme court has handed down an opinion upholding the constitutional ity of the state's new grain grading act as regards all the features, ex cept the provision for charging a fee of 25 per cent in excess of the amount required to finance operation of the act, the surplus to be used for creat ing a fund for building terminal ele vators. The court heljl, however, that the unconstitutionality of this fea ture does not prevent the fixing of a fee sufficient to provide funds neces sary for the operation of the act, un der which Dr. E. F. Ladd as chief in spector is appointing a corps of 2, 200 deputy inspectors, one for every elevator in North Dakota. The act provides that every bushel of grain or bit of other farm produce must be inspected, weighed and graded by a deputy inspector before it can be pur chased. The act was attacked thru habeas corpus action brought by C. M. Gaulke o^ Grand Forks, who was arrested for buying and inspecting grain without license. LET YOUR IDLE BOOKS HELP OUR SOLDIERS Our young men are sacrificing their education, business, professional train ing and home life to serve their coun try. They need books and current mag azines for study, recreation and diver sion in lonely moments. You can help them by donating books and magazines which will be forwarded to army camps, the front, and the hospitals. Books on the War, Popular Travel, History, and Biography, as well as Short Stories, Detective Stories, Stories of the Sea and Adventure, are desired. Any readable book of general interest, will appeal to the soldiers, as there are men of varying tastes among them. "DO YOUR BIT" by immediately bringing to THE PUBLIC LIBRARY such books as you wish to donate, or notify the library and they will be called for. MUST VACCINATE SCHOOL CHILDREN The following letter received this week by the county superintendent of schools is self explanatory: Anna Peterson, Williston, N. Dak. Dear Madam: I desire to call your attention to Section 425 of the compiled laws of 1913, which reads as follows: "Each parent or guardian having the care, custody or control of any minor or other person shall cause such minor or other person to be vaccinated." The State Board of Health under re cent ruling fixes the time by stipu lating that all children shall be vac cinated before being admitted to school. I would ask you, therefore, to kind ly enforce this mandate in the terri tory over which you have jurisdiction by notifying the different school boards and teachers, requesting them to inform the patrons of their schools to have all children vaccinated, who do not present evidence of recent vaccination, before entering the fall term of school. The teachers should be further instructed and ordered to Camp Meeting Not Favored By Williston Ministers President is a Methodist minister I kota Congregational ministers, and referred him to Rev. Mr. Harriss of could confer upon us no greater fa the local Methodist church as the proper person for him to write. I have called up the ministers of the local churches who are in town and find that none of them have been con sulted. The members of our church es and our citizens generally should understand that the local ministers have absolutely nothing to do with this camp meeting. It is engineered entirely by a group of "religious car petbaggers," responsible neither to into Confgregationalism from another the local churches or their state bodies, and is not entitled to either the moral'or financial support of the community. So far as the Congregational Church is concerned, I' wish to say that it does not believe in the camp meeting idea and has no sympathy with the system of sentimental hys terics and' "Holy Roller" gymnastics fostered by organizations of this type Congregationalism believes that in re ligion, as in all other spheres of life, "all things should be done decently and in order." The only possible ex cuse for connecting the Congrega tional church with this movement is that the Vice-President of the or ganization happens to be an extremist of this type who recently blundered denomination. This man occupies a small missionary church, is entirely out of harmony with the spirit and teachings of Congregationalism, is in no sense representative of North Da vor than to again change his ecclesias tical relations without delay. As Chairman of the Board of Directors of the North Dakota Congregational Conference, I wish to state most em phatically that this Interstate Camp Meeting Association is not counten anced by and in no sense whateyer represents the Congregational church es of the state. James Hoffman Batten. Williston, N. Dak., Aug. 20, 1917. exclude any pupil who has not com plied with the vaccination law. Any violation by school -directors or teachers in allowing or permitting children to enter school without com plying with this requirement will be subject to prosecution. Trusting the State Board of Health may have your immediate cooperation in this matter, I am, Yours very truly, C. J. McGurren, Secretary & Executive Officer.

He announced that Miss Ida Ratslaff a canning' demonstrator would give a demon stration in the Congregational church basement Sept. 1 for both town and country women. It is rumored that Attorney Gen eral Langer will shortly cause an investigation of every home in the state to learn just how much intox icating liquor is stored away for pri| vate consumption. Whether this work will be done by the states at torney or sheriff of each county, or whether an official smeller will be sent into each home is not yet known, nor whether the liquor found is to be confiscated, but the fact that a man has intoxicating liquor in his possession in North Dakota may cause him a heap of worry—unless he is a professional prohibitionist. at Camp Dodge, Des Moines, Iowa. on Sunday where they will prepare things for the conscrip army.

DEAN RUSSELL ON SC0UTINQ James E. Russell, dean of the Touch ers' college, has this to say of the Boy Scout program: "Our children are in school a total of one thousand hours In the year. The average child of school age is awake a total of 9,475 hours. The normal child is getting impressions, using Ideas, reaching conclusions, fixing hab its, organizing his modes of behavior four hours outside of school for every hour spent in school. I would consid er myself a prince among school men if I could devise a school program in which the curriculum should appeal so directly to a boy's interests and the courses of study apply so servicenbly I to adult needs as the Boy Scout pro gram. Every task in scouting is a man's job cut down to a boy's size, "The appeal to a boy's interests is not primarily because he is a boy, but particularly because he wants to I be a man. Scan the list: agriculture and angling, blncksmithing and busi ness, carpentering and civics, dairying and mining, music and plumbing, poul try and printing, first aid and polite ness, life-saving and nature study, sea mnnship and campcraft, patriotism and cooking, and scores of other accom plishments and activities requiring ac curate knowledge that Is susceptible of direct and immediate application to everyday life. Everyone of these tasks holds the boy, not only because he is a boy and likes to do them, but also because they are tasks which grown men find useful. It is the man in the boy that is eitiphnsized, and the type of manhood idealized is that which strives 'to stand for the right against the wrong, for truth against falsehood, to help the weak and oppressed, and to lovfi and seek the best things of life.' Hence the Scout oath taken by every boy on becoming a tenderfoot: 'On in.v honor, I will do my best (1) to do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout law (2) to help other people at all times (3) to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.' "Scoutcraft Is not intended to be a substitute for schooling. It is a device for supplementing the formal instruc tion of the Schools, by leading the boy into new fields and giving him a chance to make practical use ol' all his powers, intellectual, moral, and physical. The best thing about it is its extraordinary diversity, reaching out to boys of all degrees of mental ability, in all kinds of social environment, and creating for them a real need to do their level best. "But the most significant contribu tion of the Boy Scout movement to ed ucation is its pedagogical methods. As a teacher, I take my hat off to Sir Rob ert Baden-Powvll, the genius who in a bare decade has done more to vital ize the methods of character training than all the school men in this country have done since the pilgrims landed on the New England const." ALL SCOUTS SHOULD CAMP. Out-of-door activities are fundamen tal in scouting. Only in the Scout camp can the Scout attain his high est ambitions and the scoutmaster his fullest influence. Nothing but lnsurtnountable difficul ties should prevent any troop from having the privilege of spending a week at least in the open. The camp may be co-ordinated with gardening or crop gathering. A few hours a day of productive labor will be worth while and will stimulate the appetite for recreative activities. Cut ting the camp out of the Scout year is like leaving the yeast out of the bread. FILLING THE LEADER'S PLACE. places must be filled immediately from the ranks of the patriotic men who must stay at home because of. those who are dependent upon them or be cause of physical disability. 8,000 GARDENERS PARADE. Five thousand members of the Boy Scouts of America took part in the "Wake Up America" parade recently held in Greater New York. Many of the boys carried hoes and rakes, some were supplied with first-aid equipment and others carried signal flags. In this way the marching Scouts indicated how they intended to do their "bit" during the present national crisis. SCOUTS HELP CITY CANNING.
