Here Is Just
the Can You
Should Have
For Garbage
Preparation of the Rock Island
high school to receive next year's
class of freshmen and the prepara
tion of the prospective freshmen
for high school is already under
way. This week a bulletin, the
high school -News Letter," com
piled by Arnold Lau, principal, is
being distributed to all members of
the eighth grade by Mr. Lau, who
accompanies it with a talk to the
classes on their future school ca
"Every day spent in school pays
the child nine dollars," is one of
the points made in the booklet.
"Uneducated laborers earn on the
average $500 per year for 40 years,
a total of $20,000. High school
graduates earn on the average $1.
000 per year for 40 years, a total
of $40,000. This education requires
12 years of school of ISO days each,
a total of 2,160 days in school. If
2,160 days in school add $20,000 to
the income for life, then each day
at school adds $9.02. The child
that stays out of school to earn
less than $9 is losing money, not
making money."
The booklet further outlines the
requirements for graduation from
the high school, first year electives,
and various kinds or courses.
Enroll Tuesday.
On next Tuesday Mr. Lau will
take the enrollment from the eighth
grade, thus permitting the pupils
to have a week in which to study
the outline of courses and decide
on the subjects for which they wish
to register.
The cooperation of parents is
asked, and they are invited to con
fer either with room teachers or
the principal ot the high school in
regard to the courses for which
their children enroll, and to assist
in the making of
choice of subjects. "
un the enspllment made at the
present time, high school classes
and the securing of teachers for
next term will be based. It is es
timated that 225 freshmen will en
ter the high school next fall, an in
crease of about twenty-five over
last year's registration.

U used regularly.
Women have reported to us that their
hair grew as much as four to six
inches after faithful and conscientious
use of FAMO, which is the one hair
preparation which can be used daily
with beneficial results.
It also grows men's hair, even where
baldness is beginning to appear.
Unless the hai roots are absolutely
dead, FAMO will grow hair.
FAMO grows new hair because it
destroys the seborrhea germ which
is killing the hair.
The seborrhea bacilli go down into
the glands and attack the hair roots.
Unlets they are destroyed they will
eventually kill the hair.
With the germ at work the hair is

it cannot conquer alone.
FAMO will give the necessary aid to

FAMO will destroy the dandruff
bacilli and make the hair grow luxuriantly.

scientific experimentation in one of
the recognized pharmaceutical labora
tories of Detroit.

to physicians for years but have
never before been used on the head.
FAMO has accomplished wonderful
results. Every member of the family
should use it regularly. It contains
no alcohol.

It Adds a Wealth of Joy
to Family Life
The Cleveland Six adds joy and recreation to the family life in a
most unusual degree. It is such a conifortable car, so easy to drive,
so distinguished in its refined appearance, that the mother and the
children find real delight in it.
And the Man of the House, no
matter how critically inclined he may
be in mechanical matters, finds in the
Cleveland Six a triumph in motor
car construction, a car which he will
drive with enthusiasm.
The Cleveland Six touring car
seats five in comfort. The soft
cushioning and the low, under-slung
spring suspension, wipe out the road
bumps. The car is handsomely fin
ished and the upholstering is of
genuine hand-buffed leather.
And the motor! If you want to
know what a motor it is come in and
see the car. Ride in it. Drive it
yourself. Then you will know. There
are few motors indeed that can com
pare with it in actual performance.
