The fact that a dime cha’n letter is still the means of
arousing a paganism we lipped was buried in the p.ist with
enlightenment brought about Christianity, slipws that we still
hare a thin skin of Christian civil zation and that it does not
take much tp brng about a recrudescence.
The dime racket—for that is what it is meant to be in the
minds of the promotors—was attached tp the old idea of a
chain prayer letter, the perpetuation of which was a dread

We are not adverse to send-

that there is a lot of good m s-

The American Red Cross will
conduct a series of aquatic schools
throughout the country during
June in the organization’s contin-
uous effort to reduce drownings
and other needless accidents.
Two schools will be held in the
midwestern area from June 10 to
20. One will be at Camp Lincoln
for Boys at Lake Hubert, Minn.,
and the other at Lake Lucerne,
Eureka Spring, Ark. Registera-
tion will begin June 9.
Nearly 8000 persons are drown-
ed in America every year—enough
to make one of the major disasters
of history if they were all chroni-
cled on one page at a time. Since
more people learn to swim every
year, in ocean, lake, river or pool,
the figures of drownings each
year might also be expected to

RAIN MAKER FAILS
AMARILLO—After several ef-
forts to produce rain artificially
made by Tex Thornton by dis-
charging shots of TNT in the
heavens through sending it up in
small balloons, efforts have been
postponed. Thornton says he
will return soon and push effort
further. He is confident of suc-

Miss Edna Druliner aaddressed
a large group of ladies Thursday
afternoon at the American Legion
home on the results- of her inspec-
tion among pupils of city schools.
Miss Druliner, Red Cross nurse,
employed by the Grayson county
chapter, was introduced by Miss
Ollie Bird, health committee chair-
Miss Druliner pointed out that
a high percentage of Grayson
county pupils are affected with
eye, ear, nose and throat ailments
and that steps should be taken to
correct them. In carrying out
this idea, Miss Bird has called a
meeting for May 9, at the Legion
home for three representatives
from each P. T. A in Denison,
namely the presidents. welfare
chairmen and one mother, to work
out means of correction.
