FORMAL OPENING OF NEW
HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING
While the formal program for the
public opening of the new high school
building has not been mapped out the
main features are now complete. The
opening, as previously announced,
will take place Friday, Dec. 12. At
first it was intended' the exercises
should be held only in the afternoon,
out when it became apparent that
many who would like to be present
could not do so except in the evening
it was decided to have exercises both
afternoon and evening.
These exercises will consist of short
programs of addresses in which many
will be heard, but their time will be
limited. Among those who will speak
are the members of the board of edu
cation, Supt. llayden. Principal Darby
and a number of prominent educators
from abroad. Among those expected
are Supt. E. G. Cooley, of Chicago,
Prof. John W. Cook, of the Normal
at DeKalb, Prof. Hatch, of Chicago,
formerly principal of the local school,
and representatives of the faculties
of I hicago, Northwestern and the Il
linois state universities.
The programs both afternoon and
evening will be opened with invoca
tions and enlivened with music. Dur
ing and after them the visitors will
be free to inspect the building from
basement to garret. In the morning
the regular school work will be car
ried on and those who wish may call
then and see the school in actual op
eration. Now that the football season is end
ed the work in the gymnasium is be
ing regularly taken up. This week
the classes in physical culture are
being organized and the systematic

RAISE THE PRICE OF MILK
The Bock Island Dairymen's associ

decided to give notice of an advance
in the price of milk. The general
rates have heretofore been five cents
a quart or 15 cents a gallon. The ad
vance will make the price six cents
per quart or cents, per gallon.
The dairymen-give as a reason for
taking the action the high prices that
prevail for all sorts of feed, which
they say has increased the cost of
production in proportion to the ad
vance that has been decided upon.
They deny that there is any connec

course of the city health department
