A. Scar borough of the Colville high school, is being handled largely by the teachers and school patrons of the county. The successful work being done in nearly all of the Schools of the county by the Modern Health Crusade and the Nutrition Work is responsible for the interest being taken by school teachers and par ents. The Christmas seals support these two important lines of work. The Modem Health Crusade teaches to the children the princi ples of cleanliness, neatness, physi cal exercise, proper diet, promptness, obedience, an* regularity. The value of this work has so impressed it self on teachers and pupils that every effort is being made to con tinue the work. The Nutrition Work is for the pur pose of bringing underweight chil dren up to normal weight, in order that body and mind may function coordinated, thus giving opportunity for parent and teacher to get proper results in home and school education. Christmas Seal Sale Each December the National Tuber culosis Association furnishes Christ mas Seals for sale to all persons to use on their Christmas letters, packages and greetings. The seals are three colored lithographed em blems, like postage stamps, and their use signifies that the sender is willing to spend a small sum each year in working for the health of humanity.

Colville, Mrs. Ross Culver. Protection, Not Charity Mission of Xmas Seals (By Mrs. Ross Culver, Colville chairman of Seals sale.) I would like to see a Christmas seal on every letter and package mailed in Colville during December, and I know every man, woman and child in the city would buy as gen- erously as possible if they fully re alized the wonderful work thcs% little seals are making possible. A con tribution to the Christmas seal fund is not charity—it is really self pro tection, for tuberculosis is a con tagious disease and the successful fight against it means greater safe ty for the individual as well as the community, state and nation. When you bring your letters and packages to the postoffice and you already have purchased seals, bring them along too and the girls in charge will be more than glad to stick them on for you. Sixty per cent of the funds raised in the county will be used in this county, the greatest share being used in the nutrition work in our schools.

DANCING QUESTION BRINGS DISCUSSION Parent-Teacher Meeting Hears Interesting Expres sions on Resolutions Nearly a hundred of the patrons ol the Colville Hchools braved the ten-lielow-zero weather Tuesday eve ning to attend the regular monthly meeting of the Colville Parent- Teacher Asociation, at the court room. The entire business of the eve ning was upon the report of the committee which had been previously appointed by the president, W. L. Sax. This committee comprised Chester R. Wiley, J. W. Henderson, G. L. Putnam, L. P. Johnsen, C. J. Rhode, Geo. W. Schwerdfield, H. A. Scarborough, Miss Ruth M. Yenney, Mrs. Ellen Page. The committee met on the evening of Dec. 4, and by unanimous vote decided to pre sent the following resolutions to the association: , Committee Report In consideration of the increasing lack of parental control and of the increasing laxity in the enforcement of the laws, designed particularly for the protection of the morals of youth, and the fact that the schools are threatened with failure in the accomplishment of its aims and func tion?, the committee begs to submit the following resolutions for the ac tion of this body: 1. That the Parent-Teacher Asso ciation requests the city council to pass an ordinance forbidding the use of screens, or any other object which will obstruct a clear view from the street of the interior of the pool hall or card room. hall shall be partitioned off to form hall shall be patitioned off to form rooms, booths, or other inclosures, the interior of which cannot be view ed from any part of the main pool roam. 2. That the Association endorses the resolution of the sheriffs and prosecuting attorneys as adopted by their conventions this year, regarding the control of road houses, and recommends that the legislature pass the bill framed for this purpose. 3. That this Association condemns the practice of students attending public dances unchaperoned, and urges upon each parent that appro priate action be taken for prohibiting those under hia control from so at tending such dances. 4. That the school board be re quested to prohibit dancing in any and all school buildings. 5. That the Association favors the continuance of the lyceum, ath letic contests, motion pictures, plays, and other forms of entertainment and amusement as being practiced at the present time. 6. That an applicant for town marshal be recommended by this Association, who will always keep in mind the best interests of minors. That we heartily endorse J. C. Cohoon for city chief of police. Discussion of Questions All of the resolutions were ap proved by the vote of the association, with little discussion, except No. 4. A number of interesting points were brought out in the discussion of dancing in school buildings. Among the mx high school teachers in the audience, the opinion prevailed that it was better for the school to con trol all school activities, including dancing, than to leave the matter of dancing to the haphazard method* which might prevail in a community beset with conflicting ideas regard ing dancing. The student body com mittee concurred in this idea.
