The school aims to give children a good command of the fun- damental process--the three R's. Health habits and attitudes essential to healthful living are emphasized. The development of good citizen- ship is announced as one of the pri- mary tasks of modern education. The school aims to give training essential to effective home life. The foundation for vocational efficiency, is laid in the public schools. Training children for effective use of leisure time is men- tloned as another primary object. Summing up, it is declared that the public school aims to increase the gen- eral mental and moral efficiency of children. This declaration of the primary ob- jectives of modern education, as an- nounced by the National Education Association, proves that the program of modern education is practical, constructive and idealistic. PATRIOTISM "Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well-wisher to his pos- terity swear by the blood of the revo- lution never to violate in the least particular the laws of the country, and never to tolerate their violation by others. As the patriots of seventy-six did to the support of the Declaration of Independence, so to the support of the Constitui:'ion and laws let every American pledge his life, his property and his sacred honor. Let every man remember that to violate the law is to trample on the blood of his father and to tear the charter of his own and his children's liberty. Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every Ameri- can mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap; let it be taught in the schools, in seminaries and colleges; let it be printed in the primers, in spelling books and in ahnanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaim- ed in legislative halls and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it be the political religion of the nation; and let the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the grave and the gay of all sexes and tongues and colors and conditions, sacrifice unceasingly upon its altars." --ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

SHOWS HOW FISH DROWN WHEN WATER IS TOO COL0 (By Science Service) Fish may die from a cold bath, a] cording to a report made by prff~ Frank Smith of the zoology depart ment of the University of Illinois to the U. S. Bureau of Fisheries Prof. Smith conducted his studies a[ Douglas I ake a small body of watO ' " i rJ. in the northern part of Mlch.g~.[~ There are a number of deep plac~ in this lake where the water does no " ' be" circulate, and in conseque'nce it comes much cohler than the layers yt water immediately above, so that t~~ thermometer will show a drop of s e.. eral degrees in two or three feet. T111~ condition is frequently encountered itl deep, quiet lakes everywhere. Fish of several species, lowered to varying depths i,n wire cages, remain" ed alive if kept above the cold depthS' but died if they were left in the reglrJ of low temperature. Chemical analY" sis of the water showed that there was much less oxygen dissolved in the cold water than in the warmer layerS' and also that other chemical conditi~s at the lower level were unfavorable for the support of life. Although sea water containS f~r more chlorine than it does iodine, sea plants contain more iodine than chlorine. When a comet is moving away frf the sun, its tail precedes it.
