Springfield, 111., Dec. 30. Leader

treaty million dollars, this morning
rained C D. Waldo, principal of the
Cut Aurora high school, election
ss next president ot the Illinois
State Teachers' association. . Mr.
Waldo is 35 years old, the youngest
man ever elected to the presidency.
' Responding to the applause that
erected bis election, and combining
mi speech and the report ot the
resolutions committee, which the
eoaventlon unanimously adopted,
liter several drastic changes, which
tar committee had recommended,
Mr. 'Waldo said:
"Teachers must have another in-
ereau in pay. Present salaries are
not drawing trained teachers to the

Robert C. Moore, secretary or the

mittee conditions in mininsr and in

predicted last night in a discourse
by Professor F. R. Moulton of the
University , of Chicago before the
American Association tor the Ad

Professor . Moulton told the asso

quadrennial session here,'- that
man's intelligence- today will hate
the same -ratio to the man of future
years as the toad has to tka Mtk
century human beings. . '
The future life of planets is a
matter of a trillion year or so,
Professor Moulton said, aad theo
ries of collisions between planets
are baseless, at least any collision
is improbable for several thousands
of millions of years. , .
Possibility of cancer 'cure and
treatment of other skin diseases by

found possible. Professor Wood also

A contribution totaling $200 was
collected by the public schools of
Rock Island for the relief of the
distressing needs of the students

ation of the students throughout

the American Relief administration.
The fund subscribed by the var

: A large majority ot the scoutmas

banquet tendered - them, by the
local council. An informal pro
gram was given , during the ban
quet by Scouts Frederick Scknitser,

Marie Bergot gave several . read
ings which were thoroughly enjoy
ed by the scontmastera. Scout

Following troops leaders acted as
instructors for the evening: Steve

the next one will be held shortly
alter the nrst of the year. The
course as outlined by local head
quarters has been officially O. K.'d
by national headquarters and the
men who complete the course will
be. given diplomas. National head
quarters sent the word that this is
the only city on record where the
scoutmasters themselves help out
as instructors. This speaks well
for Rock Island and for the quality
of its troop leaders.
The scout band did its good turn
yesterday afternoon by giving a
concert at Bethany home for the
youngsters there. The small
youngsters at this place thoroughly
enjoyed the visit of the scouts and
