SPRING HOUSE CLEANING
One member of the Booster's
club was surprised beyond words
to find band members entbusiast-
ticclly cleaning the band room
Monday. There was dusting,
sweeping, beating the rug, and
stacking musical instruments was
in big swing when this unobserv-
ed person looked on—to see her
son happily dusting a worn rug.
"What spring does to people,"
remarked this lady to one of the
teachers only to be told that
band members always dust and
sweep their room—they make it
an honor to keep it clean because
they are truly happy to have this
Only a few months ago Ga-.t-
Tons were not known in this
community although the formula
used in the coir.ponr.dlng of Cas-
Tons by one of the largos', phar-
maceutical houses in the coun-
try has been a favorite prescrip-
tion used with great success in
the relief of stomach and duode-
nal ulcers, indigestion, acid dys-
pepsia, sour or upset stomach,
Classiness, bloating, heartburn,
j constipation, bad breath, sleep-
' I:3sr.css, headaches, and jaded
appetites. But today it is anoth-
er story for Gas-Tons are known
in hundreds of homes as the
product which has brought health
and happiness to members of
their family, when these condi-
tions were due to excess acid.
There are stories of men and
women who had given up hope
of relief until they were told by
some former stomach sufferer of
the days and nights spent suffer-
ing, with no relief in sight, but
who after trying Gas-Tons for
a short time were on the road to j
recovery and who are now happy j
to state, with great pleasure, thatj
none of the old symptoms are j
with them and now they sleap j
all night long, go about their j
regular work avid pleasure, eat;
the things they like most with no j
ill results. And all the stomach 1
Sufferers know what this means, j
•Therefore it is no wonder to
them why, Ga::-Tons sales have!
grown by leaps and bounds and I
they can easily see why these j
former stomach sufferers are able |
to go about with a smile on their j
xaces in place of the old grouch.'

druggist in each town. Gas-Tons [

MUSIC TESTS GIVEN
How musical .are you? Has
my child musical ability? These
are questions that can be answer-
ed to a great extent before the ex-
pense of an instrument has been
I assumed. Readers Digest recent-
! ly carried an interesting article
on this subject. A number of ed-
ucators have worked out different
| types of tests showing musical
ability or the lack of it. Mr. Mar-
! tin has ordered test dealing with
rhythm and pitch. These are be-
; ing given at the grade school in
; the public school music classes,
and it will probably be given in
, high school, too. In this way a
person with a strong sense of
i rhythm may be discovered.
The results so far are quite in-
I teresting and is hoped that this
project will soon be completed.
