PAGE FOUR Monroe Monitor. Monroe. Wash.. May 19. 1960 Eighth Graders Show Up Above Nat'l Average "Slightly above national average" was the tab given Monroe public school's eighth graders in the fields of reading, arithmetic and lan- guage based on a battery of tests given recently. Vern Fankhauser, Monroe school district's testing director, reports the eighth graders were at 8.82 (Sth grade, 8.2 month) at the time of the tests. Here is the way the students stacked-up: reading vocabulary, 8.91; reading cxmlprehension, 10.05; etic reasoning, 9.43; arith- metic fundamentals, 9.75; mechan- ics of English, 8.82; spelling, 8.48. Sports Afield Camping is increasing prodigi, ously. In 1958 about 68 million vis- its were recorded on the national forests alone--three times more than in 1946. 2nis volume and in- tensity of public camping ground use, coast to coast, is staggering. Use alone, to say nothing of health and common decency, dictate that cleanliness on the nation's camp- grounds be improved and upgrad- ed. Despite inadequacy and disrepair of sanitary facilities on some pub- lie campgrotmds, no serious epi- demic has yet .arisen from them. That's because the basic rules of human sanitation are presently be. ing met. In the.lVIy issue of Sports Afield Magazine, Lee Yeager dis- cusses a few prindples governing be stored and served in covered utensils. Screened boxes or even ceesecloth will met food cover- age purpeses, the latter without adding hulk or weight in transpor- tation. The handling of garbage, includ- ing dishwater, is also important in maintaining a clean, healthful camp. A garbage pit 100 feet or more from the tent door, properly covered and preferably exposed to full sunlight, is  good solution. Don't compromise on size; have it big and deep enough. One cubic foot per person per week, begin- ning one foot below the ground surfaco, is a good rule-of-thumb. ,Dogs are natural fly-attractors in any warm season.
