I think we should strive to make
our school house and grounds the
most attractive place in the commun
ity for there the children spend the
greater part of their time.
Let each school observe Arbor Day
each year and on that day let each
child, parent and teacher plant some
thing. Have the men and boys plant
the trees, dig the trenches, etc. and
the women and girls lay off the flower
beds and plant the flowers.
Instead of planting so many water
oaks for shade I would suggest plant
