Planning' a home—in the case of the average family
—is a momentous undertaking-. On every side are ex
amples of structural inefficiency, architectural jams and
the complete sacrifice of usefulness to beauty or the
reverse. Mrs. Householder is always telling you: "if
we had it to do over I would have things thus and so.''
Hut .i house once built is built to stay while, at least, and
mistakes in its design are apt to be irreparable.
We all have our beautifully vague notions of what a "real
home" should be like, but seldom do we transmute those ideas
into blue prints and specifications without losing 90 per cent of
their merit.
Some of us are fortunate enough to learn home-planning by
experience others must spend a lifetime in a misfit domicile, more
or less content in the knowledge that we could do better another
time, even though the opportunity may not come.
llome planning is a fine art, broader than architecture,
domestic economy and sociology all bundled in one package. And
the reason we build so many misfits is that we ignore a world of
experience and neglect to draw 011 ample storehouses of informa
tion that properly used will insure against serious mistakes.
Our experience, together with our Free Flan Service, wil^
help to solve your building problems. Say the word and we'll be
glad to talk it over.

90,359 E0RD CARS
Two Months Output of Ford Motor Com
pany During March and April
In the last two months the Ford
Motor Company has produced the
enormous total of 90,359 cars, this
including 43,849 cars in March and
46,510 cars in April. This not only
insures the completion of the produc
tion of 300,000 Ford cars between
August, 1914, and August, 1915,
barring the totally unforseen, and
the rebating of all Ford purchasers
within that period, but it means that
the goal will undoubtedly be reached
before the promised time, August 1st.
In fact, the 300,000th car will
probably leave the Ford assembly
early in July and the production pace
will continue almost unabated, so tre
mendous is the demand this year the
world over for Ford cars.
Then on August 1st will begin the
task of rebating about $15,000,000
to Ford purchasers in accordance with
the terms of t.he Ford profit-sharing
announcement. Each of the 300,000
or more Ford purchasers will be mail
ed, of course, an individual check,
probably of $50. The postage alone
on this huge mail means at least

Marcus Smith won first in the half
mile run, second in the broad jump
and Arthur Robertson won third in
the mile run.
The program given by the primary
grades last, Friday evening was
received veiry favorably. The receipts
were something over forty dollars.
This money will be used entirely for
supplementary reading material and
library books for the first three
grades. At present, we have only
two sets of readers and no library
books for these grades, which is a
very lamentable condition. The best
schools have from four to six readers
and the pupils thus crave an abun
dance of easy reading before they are
forced to take up something too diffi
cult for them. The love for good
literature is developed before the
child is able to read. Consequently
during the first three years of a
child's school life it should have read
to it by the teacher the very cream of
the best literature. As the child lis
tens from day to day to these gems of
literature its vocabulary iB increased
and it is given food for thought.
Fluency in oral composition in the
lower grades makes for fluency in
written composition in the upper
grades. There is no greater crime
being committed over this broad land
of ours than that boys and girls are
being taught to read and not taught
what to read. It will be one of the
aims of our school system during the
coming year to develop such a desire
for the best in literature that the
mechanics of reading will be second*
ary or that boys and girls will insist
on being taught to read that they may
read for themselves the good things
that have been read to them.
The exhibition or work in music
and art by the seventh and eighth
grades will be given in the gym
nasium of the high school on Friday
afternoon at three o'clock. Everybody
is cordially invited to come and see
the work that has been done during
the year in art, which will be on dis
play at that tiipe. The program of
music will be as follows:
