ll HI Vol. 25 EAST JORDAN. MICHIGAN, FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 1921. No. 25 Hi irtrti M 111 I Tony Zoulek Barns Burn Loss Is Heavy. No Insurance Carried. Fire of an unknown origin com pletely destroyed the barns and out buildings on the Anthony Zoulek farm Wednesday night about eleven o'clock. The barn and grainery contained con siderable farm machinery and these, together with the buildings are a total loss as no insurance was carried. It was with difficulty that the horses were rescued and about 100 chickens were burned. The family were sleeping and were awakened by the crackling of the Hames to find all the buildings ablaze and the dwelling afire in several places It was with considerable difficulty that the dwelling was saved. Tony and his brother, Ted Zoulek, were quite badly burned about the arms and feet in their effort to save property. Mr. Zoulek sold his farm north of the city and adjoining the County Farm a few months ago and purchased the former Fred Kowalske farm located west of Monroe Creek. He was just nicely getting squared away in his new location and the loss is a serious one. BOYNE CITY TO CELEBRATE FOURTH Have Plans Under Way Monster Celebration For The Boyne Citizen in a recent issue, contains the following article regarding its Fourth of July celebration: "Last year the county celebration of the Fourth was held at Charlevoix, next year it will be at East Jordan but this year it will be held at Boyne City and it is up to our citizens to make it a success. "Aside from the usual features which attend a Fourth of July celebration, a commendable feature of this year's en tertainment will be the home coming get-together movement which is ejected to more closely unite the citizens of Charlevoix county." Under an agreement entered into last year, the three cities of the county were to celebrate once every three years, Charlevoix last year, Boyne City this year and East Jordan next year. East Jordan citizens should co-operate with our neighboring city of Boyne City to make this event a notable one. It is a county affair under the present system, and East Jordan will celebrate next year. Let us remember the gol den rule.

SHORTAGE OF TEACHERS IN RURAL SCHOOLS A SERIOUS PROBLEM The shortage of teachers among the rural schools of Charlevoix County is more acute than ever before. Various causes have been instrumental in bring ing about this condition. In the first place, the teachers who left the pro fession to take up other lines of work, are not "coming back" as was predict ed. Many of the teachers who put off going to school during war times when everything was high are now leaving their schools to finish their normal training. Under the provisions oi the law pass ed by legislature at its winter session, no one can enter the teaching profes sion alter rJiio without at least a year of normal training, and after 1929 the MINIMUM amount of training for a teacher will be two years. With the scarcity or teachers as marked as it is at present, it is likely that wages will remain at about the present level for four or five years, and then gradually rise, as the new laws begin to take effect. There were no third grade certifi cates issued at the April examinations, and it is not likely that any will be granted this August, because the six weeks of normal training which these applicants have had is not enough to fit them to pass the tests, which are based on one year normal training. Students graduating from high school this year, who plan on making teach ing their chosen profession, are, for the most part, planning on a full year, or more at the State or County Nor mal before entering on their work. At the present time there are twenty seven rural schools in this county with neither a teacher nor an applicant for their school. Counting all teachers available at the present time, good, bad or indifferent, as well as prospects not yet investigated, there are just ten. This leaves a total of seventeen actual vacancies in our rural schools, with not even prospects for a teacher. The smaller of these can easily transport to neighboring schools, and that is really their wisest plan. It is to be hoped. that the mists will clear away some what before fall, and that our largest schools, at least, may be able to get teachers. Garden Notes , (By M. A. C. Horticultural Dept.) Did you plant any sweet corn for late summer and fall use? Try a plant ing of Golden Bantam now. It should mature ears large enough for table use before killing frosts occur. Remember that the strawberry is a shallow rooted plant. For this reason cultivation should not be too deep. A good dirt mulch an inch or two in depth is sufficient. It is often easier to prevent "garden troubles" than to cure them after they appear. Keep the plants vigorous and healthy by frequent cultivation and proper fertilizing, thinning and spray ing. If the currant worm becomes serious when the fruit is nearly ripe, fresh hellebore should be used. As a spray, apply at the rate of 4 ounces in 2 or 3 gallons of water; or the plants may be dusted with a mixture of 1 pound of the material in 5 pounds of flour or air slaked lime. Don't leave vacant spaces in the gar den where the early crops have been grown. An ideal vegetable garden is one thrt produces a continuous supply of a variety of crops throughout the season. Plan during June for crops that will mature during the late sum mer and fall months. NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS. Sealed bids will be received by the Board of County Road Commissioners of Charlevoix County at their office in the Court House, Charlevoix, Mich., until 1:00 o'clock p. in., July 7, 1921, for improving 1.151 miles of Class B, nine feet road on what is known as the East Jordan and Alba Road.

HOUSE, Chairman. RICHARD LEW& Clerk: A suspicious man is suspicious of himself. Who remembers when a dime and no war tax bought a pretty good deck of cards? . Nine Hundred - In Attendance Fine Program at Commencement and Dedicatory Exercises. The Commencement and Dedicatory Exercises at the school house last Fri day night surpassed ' even what had been anticipated. Although the night was the hottest of the season, over nine hundred people were in atten dance. The exercises lasted over two and one half hours, but so interesting were they that the intense heat did not lessen the attention of the audience. Harold Jarvis of Detroit delighted all with his beautiful songs. Probably no other sffcger ever appeared in East Jor dan who created such a favorable im pression, and who received such uni versal praise as -Mr. Jarvis. Two of his songs, "Beautiful Isle of Some where" and "No Night There," both sung by request were particularly greatly enjoyed. Prof. C. O. Davis of the University of Michigan spoke on "The High School as a Social Center." Mr. Davis has made a special study of this subject and he explained very clearly how the East Jordan High School can be of immense "benefit to this community. E. E. Gallup of Lansing spoke on "The American Spirit in the Public School.'' Mr. Gallup emphasized team work, co-operation, and self-sacrifice in school and out of school. He also discussed in a very clear manner the future of agriculture and the relation of the high school to it. IraD. Bartlett, on behalf of the Board of Education, presented the twenty graduates with their diplomas and also expressed an appreciation of the work done by Contractor Rogers in plan ning and constructing the building, and also of the work in general accom plished by Supt. M. R. Keyworth. RESORT INSPECTION STARTS THIS WEEK Thorough inspection of summer re sorts in the northern part of the state is insured this summerthrough co-operation of the food and drug division of the department of agriculture with the state department of health by the traveling laboratory trnck which left this week to start the season's survey in Mason County. In addition to W. C. Brockway, assistant state sanitary engineer, and George Stucky, bacteriologist, the per sonnel of the "lab on wheels" will in clude 0. E. Strictland and B. Proulx, special food and drug inspectors! Testing of all milk and water supplies as well as performing diagnostic bac teriology for physicians, will fall to the bacteriologist. Surveys of the sanitary conditions of resorts, inspection of ser age and garbage disposal systems, wat er supplies, drainage, fly and mosquito control, sanitation of bathing beaches, bath houses and pollution of streams and lakes, will be carried out by the sanitary engineer. Slaughter houses, meat markets, soft drink and confec. tionary stands, restaurants, bakeries, stores, creameries, and dairies will be inspected by the food and drug special ists. The itinerary of the motorized labora tory includes the coast and most of the interior couutiei from Mason County north around the northern shore of the Lower Peninsula, and as far south along the eastern coast as time will permit. Combined earnings of Michigan sum mer resorts in 1920 have been approxi mated at $100,000,000, giving the busi ness a ranking of second or third among the state's industries. It was to aid in the safeguarding of the health of state's citizens and visitors and to pro tect the resort industry that the travel ing laboratory and technicians spent three months in the field last season at an expense of less than $2,000, the scope of the service being broadened this summer to keep pace with the de mand for the work.

SPECIALISTS AID MICHIGAN CROP TESTS Specialists from the United States Department of Agriculture are co-operating with farm crops men at the Michigan Agricultural College this year in the handling of numerous crops ex periments which are expected to be of great value to growers of the state. Dr. A. J. Peters, in charge of clover investigations for the government, is furnishing the college crops depart ment with strains of imported and American legume seed, and has made arrangements for cooperative develop ment of forage crops on light soils of the Upper Peninsula. Seven acres of flax increase plats on the M. A. C. farm are being checked by R. L. Davis, of the flax department of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Work with peas at the East Lansing and Upper Peninsula experiment sta tion grounds are being handled by H. N. Vinal. Cooperative bean tests are under way with Wilbur Brotherton handling the government end; while J. G. Willier, corn specialist, is work ing with the college staff on variety and ear row tests with corn. "As a result of this cooperative plan" says Prof. J. F. Cox, head of the M. A. C. Crops Department. "Michigan is enabled to take advantage of the great resources of the U. S. Depart ment in carrying on test work in the state. Evtensive work with beets and other crops is in prospect. We are planning to push the cooperative end of the experimental program hard." Don't be negative.

SUMMER HINTS TO CAR OWNERS GIVEN BY STUDEBAKER DEALER Tells How to Get Maximum Efficiency from Automobiles During Months When They Are Used Most Advice to Motorists Coy era a Number of Important Points. With the summer motoring season here and the call of the open road at hand the time of year wheh owners use their cars more than at any other season they are naturally more eager than usual to so operate their cars that they will get the maximum of efficiency. As an aid in this direction, timely ad vice is given to owners by Fred G. Craig local distributor of Studebaker cars. In an interview on service, he says: "In general, motor car owners should bear in mind that the heat of summer, combined with the harder and more consistent use to whtch they put their cars at this season of the year, causes more evaporation than at other times. This applies not only to water in the radiator but also to oil. "During the hot weather months at-' tention should be frequently given to the radiator; the owner should see that is kept filled, and at intervals it should be flushed out and filled with clean water. In connection with effi cient operation of the cooling system, fan belt adjustment should be made, the fan is needed in summer. The position of the spark lever should be watched to see that it is kept in an advanced position, thus assuring better cooling of the motor. "Minor parts, such as spring shackles wheel bearings, steering connections and universal ioints renuire nilincr more often in the summer. It is well that a heavier grade of lubricating oil be used In the motor, than in colder weather, and oil should be drained from the motor at intervals not to ex ceed every 1,000 miles. Better perfor mance will result when this is done. "Careful attention should" be direct ed to the brakes to see thaj they are kept in as nearly perfect condition as possible, for during the summer they get greater usage, with more traffic to contend with and more cars on the road. "Tire pressure should be watched more closely on tires that have been in use for a long period, because tires expand more in hot weather. The owner should have a tire gauge and use it in inflating. In taking long trips the owner ahould be provided with a good spare tire, and should go over all tires during the trip to see that they have no defects. "Every owner wants to have his car car in the best possible condition dur ing the summer months, for it is then he uses his automobile most. To get get this maximum efficiency, he must exercise greater care in going over the car." WHEN TO STOP ADVERTISING A certain trade journal once request ed a number of its largest advertisers to give their opinions conceruing the best time to stop advertising, and the following replies were received. When population ceases to multiply and the generations that crowd on after you and never heard of you, stop coming on. When you have convinced every body whose life will touch yours that you have better goods and lower prices than they can get anywhere else. When you perceive it to be the rule that men who never advertise are out stripping their neighbors in the tame line of business. When men stop making fortunes right in your sight solely through the use of legitimate advertising. When you can forget the words of the shrewdest and most successful business men concerning the cause of their prosperity. When every man becomes so thoro- ly a creature of habit that he will cer tainly buy this year where he bought last year. When you would rather have your own way and fail than take advice and win. When nobody else thinks it pays to advertise. Few things are harder than having faith in the masses when they don't have faith in you. If you have nothing to recommend you but your dignity, you are not as important as the rattle of a Ford door. If you put off until tomorrow the things you should do today, occasional ly somebody will come along and do them for you. .
