of chicken pox, 11 cases of diph-
theria, 320 cases of measles, 75
cases of polio, and 199 cases of
whooping cough occurlng In the
state In the week between July 10-
17, Dr. George W. Cox, State
Health Officer, has made an ap-
peal to all parents to have their
children undergo a thorough phy-
sical examination before entering
The appeal was made to coin-
cide with the announcements of
the various opening dates of
schools throughout the state.
"It is a medically established
fact that a child’s health has a di-
rect bearing on his progress in
school,” the health officer said. “It
Is no longer sufficient to provide
the child with books and new fall
clothing. Today we realize the
health factor must be considered
if the child Is to reach his optimum
Dr. Cox said that since the
child spends most of his time in-
doors with large groups of chil-
dren, It Is imperative that he be
Immunized against communicable
diseases when such protection Is
possible. The spread of such dis-
eases Is facilitated in conjested
He said the examination should
Include a dental check-up and in-
spection of the eyes, ears, nose and
throat. The best health insurance
tor any child Is constant super-
vision by the family physician and

HUNT8VILLE, Texas, July 30.—
It Is strictly bad policy to be late
to class at Sam Houston State Col-
At least, that’s what Prof. J. D.
McLeod told members of his his-
tory class recently.
The next day the good profes-
sor was late to class himself and
to show students his good inten-
tions he brought with him a 50-
pound watermelon which he served
to members of the class.
Studies were dismissed until the
watermelon was eaten.

BARUCH, the SCRIBE
Bible Material: Jeremiah 32:6-15:
36-37: 43:5-6—Jeremiah 36:
Then Jeremiah called Baruch
the son of Neriah; and Baruch
wrote from the mouth of Jeremiah
all the words of the Lord, which he
had spoken unto him, upon a roll
of a book.
And Jeremiah commanded Ba-
ruch, saying, I am shut up: I can-
not go Into the house of the Lord:
Therefftre go thou and read in
the roll, which thou hast written
from my mouth, the words of the
Lord irt the ears of the people In
the Lord’s house upon the fasting
day: and also thou Shalt read
them in the ears of all Judah that
come out of their cities.
It may be they will present
their supplication before the Lord,
and will return every one from his
evil way: for great is the anger
and the fury that the Lord hath
pronounced against this people.
And Baruch the son of Neriah
did according to all that Jeremiah
the prophet commanded him,
reading In the book the words of
the Lord In the Lord’s house.
And they asked Baruch, saying,
Tell us now, How didst thou write
all these words at His mouth?
« Then Baruch answered them,
He pronounced all these words
un$o me with His mouth, and I
wrote them with Ink In the book.
Then said the princes unto Ba-
ruch, Go' hide thee, thou and
Jeremiah; and let no man know
where ye be.
And they went In to the king
Into the court, but they laid up
the roll In the chamber of Ellsha-
ma the scribe, and told all the
words in the ears of the king.
So the king sent Jehudi to
fetch the roll; and he took It out
of Ellshama the scribe’s chamber.
And Jehudi read it. in the ears of
the king and in the ears of all the
princes who stood beside the king.
Now the king sat in the winter-
house in the ninth month: and
there was a fire on the hearth
burning before him.
And it came to pass, that when
Jehudi had read three or four
leaves he cut it with the penknife,
and cast it into the fire that was
on the hearth, until all the roll was
consumed in the fire.
Yet, they were not afraid, nor
rent their garments, neither the
king nor any of his servants that
heard all these words.
Then took Jeremiah another
roll and gave it to Baruch the
scribe, the son of Neriah; who
wrote therein from the mouth of
Jeremiah all the wocds of the
book which Jehoiakim king of Ju-
dah had burned in the fire: and
there were added besides unto
them many like words.
The events under discussion in
this particular lesson happened
for the most part in the fourth and
fifth years of the reign of Jehoia-
kim, king of Judah. This would
place them about 605-604 B. C.
These are the twilight days for the
kingdom of Judah, with decay and
disintegration in evidence on all
hands and complete defeat and
downfall just around the corner.
Jeremiah was the lone prophet
of God who sought to stem the
tide, who called the people back to
God, who accused them of degen-
eracy, sensualism, and double-
mindedness. But his pleas fell
upon deaf ears as the nation
hastened to its doom. Baruch Was
Jeremiah was called the weep-
ing prophet, he profisled during
the most critical time of Judah.
King Jeholaklni, did not want the
people to know the truth, and It
was Jeremiah’s duty before God to
give the people the truth; he was
afraid to go into the house of God,
so he sends his secretary Baruch
Into the house to read the truth.
The truth will make us free, if we
seek to know the truth which Is In
God’s word of 66 books from Gen-
esis to Revelations.
In this lesson we find a man
little known to the people but a
man who wanted to do his part to
serve in the best way he could,
that is, what we need to do even
though we feel we are not capable
to do much; we need not be a
preacher, we need not be a teach-
