Or. Philander P. Claxtom.
Dr. Philander P. Claxton would
like to see all American kiddies in
kindergarten. Dr. Claxton, who is
U. 8. commissioner of education,
has issued a statement pleading for
more kindergarten schools and
urging parents to send their chil
dren. In localities where this ad
vantage has not been provided he
suggests that parents acquaint the
school authorities with their de
sire to have this grade established
for their little ones.

Another warning was issued to
day by Commissioner Frank Wlch,
in charge of the department of
streets and public improvement!),
relative to persons caaght throwing
refuse in the alleys after they have
once been cleaned by the city.
Commissioner Wich announced that
continued violations of his warn
ings will bring arrests.
An alley clean-up campaign was
) started by the city a week ago to
day and about half of the work has
been completed. However, in
many, instances residents continue
to throw refuse In the alleys in dis
tricts that . have already been
cleaned.
Commissioner Wich's plan is to
clean the alleys and have them kept
clean throughout the winter
months, thus avoiding the unsight
ly looking alleys of past winters.
The plan includes the posting of
1,000 signs in the alleys after the
clean-up campaign 'has been com
pleted. These will warn residents
that no tin cans, bottles, rubbish or
any other waste material with the
exception of ashes is to be placed
in the alleys.
In placing . ashes In the alleys
citizens are requested to refrain
from throwina tin can or bottles
on the ash piles as the city uses the
ashes in the spring to repair dirt
roads, and any foreign material in
them makes ashes useless for this
purpose.
Place In Boxes.
All other waste material can be
placed in boxes, barrels or like
containers and will be removed by
the city at any time during the win
ter when notified. This proceedure
will make it unnecessary to carry
on regular collections, but at the
same time the alleys will be kept
clean, the comissioner stated.
