C., and containing an at- tack in varied forms on the Initia- tive measure No. 49, known as the school bill are now being circulated in this state. The editors of this magazine, which circulates among the national law-makers, the state law-makers, members of the bar, and other professional men throughout the United States, have devoted an entire issue to the Washington school proposition, and are intensely alarm* ed over the situation here. Rev. Calvin P. Bellman, managing editor of the publication in an article entitled "What the Anti-Church School Slogan Means" points out the virtues of private or church schools, and gives concrete evidences of the good that has been accomplished through these institutions. He says: "The slogan of those who would destroy all private and church schools is "One country, one law, and one school.' Let us see just what this means. "With the thought of the first and second declarations, 'one country' and 'one law,' we are in harmony. We believe that all who enjoy the privileges of United States citizen- ship should be Americans without qualification. All should be amen- able also to one law. This is only reasonable. "But why one school ? When our government was established, public l schools were unknown. Whatever educational facilities there were in the colonies, which later became state, were private and church schools and sectarian academies and colleges. "Now does 'one school' mean a single educational system, and thai maintained by the state? Certainly it can mean nothing short of that, for the movement to blot out elementary private and church schoolscannot long be confined within the limits of the first eight grades of school work. There are comparatively few of the men nowadays who wield a molding influence in governmental affairs, either state or national, who have not gone beyond the eighth gade; so if it could be shown that state school training in the first grades is essential to good citizen- ship, how much more essential would it be that the men who, as law- makers and executives, are to shape the destinies of the nation shotfld be trained in state institutions rather than in academies, colleges and uni- versities not under state coati-el, such as Lel'and Stanford, Jr., University in California, George Washington University in our national capital, mentary departments of colleges maintained primarily for practical normal training. Their teachers, ex- clusive of native teachers in mission schools, number nearly three thous- and, very many of whom hold cer- tificates from public school superin- tendents. "That the work done in these schools is fully up to state stand- ards is attested by the fact that, whether required by state law or not, these schools are not only al- ways open to inspection by public school officials, but they invite it, and the grades given by them to their pupils are recognized without question by the public schools. The same is true of certificates of academic work and college degrees. "The Seventh-Day Adventist Col- lege of Medical Evangelists at Loma Linda, Californai,.is rated 'Class A' by the American Medical Associa- tion. Connected with Loma Linda Medical College is the White Memor* ial hospital and dispensary in Los  Angeles. This is now one c the largest hospitals in the city, and has a standing second to none either in east or west. "These facts are given not to boast, but simply to show what the move- ment for the destruction of private and church schools, as they exist and re carried on by Seventh-Day Adventists, proposes to strike down "True, so far as yet proposed, the movement for 'one school' has not, in so many words, proposed to prohibit church or sectarian schools above i the eighth grade, but he is blind in- deed who cannot see that to strike down the primary schools maintained by this denomination would be to cut, as it were. the very taproot of, theig entire educational system, for the primary schools are the source of supply for students, the feeders of the academies, the colleges, the Loma Linda medical college, and the White Memorial hospital and dispensary. "We have said nothing of fifty medical sanitariums scattered all over the world, operated by Seventh- Day Adventists, nor the score of trained nurses graduated by them. every year, every one of them going forth, as do the medical graduates from Loma Linda, to do all they can to make the world a better, more desirable place in which to live "And this whole system, this grand work of education of an in- 'creasingly large number of young men and women for Christian ser- vice, is :olaced in jeopardy by this ill-advised movement, rapidly swell- ing to nation-wide dimensions, to make impossible the maintenance of private or church schools.

Following came a delicious collection of re- freshments served by the following: Mrs. F. E. Gerber, Mrs. Tony tbo- elli, Mrs. M. ]3orsheim and MTS. Chris Jensen. The hall was exquisite- ly decorated with fall flowers and a wonderfully fine colored collection of autumn leaves.

Schools were first held out of doors and the teaching was conducted orally, similar to the Hindu Brahman schools. Among lhe Hebrews the laws were expoundeff by oral teaching from the porches of the temples. The amount of instruc- tion greatly increased from the mere oral teaching of the law until it in- volved letters and arithmetic. Among the Spartans the education was almost entirely, along new lines. Elementary schools became common after the Christian era and in 64 A. D. they were made "obligatory. In Athens nearly all of the schools were private. teaching music and literature, read- ing, writing, arithn{etic, geography and drawing. In early Rome the schools taught reading and writing and some- times arithmetic. MRS. STONE a Beauty Specialist will demonstrate United Drug Co.

Somali Fond of Song Musical instruments--even the tom- tom, so dear to the heart of most Af- rican natives--are unknown to the Somali, who. none the less, take great pleasure in singing and dancing. 'heir songs are not by any means cas- ual chants but have special signifi- cance, and are applicable to certain occasions. For example, there Is a "Song of Thanksgiving for the finding of water, after a long Journey," and songs for the loading and unloading of caravans, but most of their music Is of a religious nature; and there is a "Song of Burial." sung when the AT YOUR SERVICE Camp-Riley Drug Co.
