The Fine Arts Department of the Washington State Federation of Wo- men's Clubs has received a set of beautiful hand-colored slides from the Curator of the National Collec- tion of Art in Washington, D. C., Dr. W. H. Holmes. There are 126 of these slides which are coes from the brushes of many of the old ma.:- ters from the 16th century down to the present time, according to Mrs. Harry Paul Pierce, chairman of the fine arts department of the federa- tion. Many of the British, French, Ital- ian and Dutch artists as well as a representative, showing of famous American painters are includled in the exhibit. In addition to these are 25 hand-colored slides depi:ting many of the late war heroes of Amer- ica and the Allied Nations. There are enough pictures in the collection for two good programs and they are accompanied by a lecture prepared by Dr. Holmes.

Washington State College, Pull- man, Feb. 25.--In order to work out a more complete set of rules ancl regulations for the low bacteri count competition, to be held among Washington dairy farmers rising milk machines, the opening date of the contest has been extended to March 1, according to a report is- sued by the Washington Committee on the Relation of Electricity to Agriculture. "There seems to be some misunder- standing as to the purpose of thin competi.tion," according to L. J. Smith, secretary of the committea and head of the agricultural engineer- ing department of the State College. "It is intendled to test the dairymen's ability to make" the best possible canitary use of milking machines and is not for the purpose of com- paring different types of machines. "The impression has also gone out that the competition is being foster- ed by the college of agriculture, TliS is ,ot'the case. The eompetitio originated and is being conducted by the state committee. After carefu| consideration it was' dbcided that only" those farmers within the range of city dairy inspectors could enter th contest, because, otherwise it wouldl be difficult to make the necessar inspections and bacteria counts.'

There is always a sadness about death, but particularly so, waen it claims one who has just completed the first step on life's cycle and who is about to start out on life's serious busi.ness. For this young man, pleas- ing to look upon, bright and pleasant to meet. and who, in the natural or- der of things, was looking forward to a long and useful life, to have to answer the Master's call just on the threshhold of man's estate, was not easy, but the wise and loving Father of All Mankind sent the years of sickness and suffering that he might be ready and willing to go. The Monitor, with hosts of friends, extend to the sorrowing parents, sis- ter and brothers sincere sympathy.

We have been buying so-called dark bread, believing that we were getting Whole Wheat, but we can notice the difference now.
