the approaching winter months. Dr.
W. S. Rankin, state health officer, is
sues the following statement in which
he sums up the. situation thus, "our
attitude should be one of hopefulness,
our position one of safety." He says:
"The epidemic of influenza will re
cur this winter, if the germ that
causes it is not worn out in killing
people, if we have no artificial means
quarantine .or vaccination for con
trolling the disease, or if it has not al
ready affected all of the population

Launching of a new policy regarding
enlistment of illiterate men in the

During the war, a number of the men

POLK COUNTY NEWS,
the Boys 6r
The average small boy apparently
gives little thought as to wherewithal
he shall be clothed clothes being the
least of his troubles. . But if any fond
mother has visions of decking him out
In things that differ much from the
clothes worn by his average, everyday
school fellow, she might as well ban
ish them first as last. Men and boys
are less independent in the matter of
clothes than women and girls are.
This is because they come in for a
lot of frank ridicule from their fellows
the minute they do, anything unusual
in the way of dressing.
Here are two suits for school boys
the kind they like. They are made of
good qualities of woolen goods with
two pairs of knickerbockers to each
suit and boast certain small finishing
touches that will please their wearers,
although they are so conspicuous that
one's attention must be called to them.
For instance the patch pockets on the
coat for the larger boy have flaps that
button down. This is an advantage
that the rough-and-tumble youngster
Those who originate styles for the
flapper are destined to come in for
many thanks from that opinionated
young person when she views the new
winter coats designed for her. Since
specialists give their time and thought
to her needs styles for her frocks and
coats and millinery are no longer
Afterthoughts of those, whose business
Is to design apparel for grown-ups.
Of course when the girl f ron twelve
to seventeen owns a frock or coat that
takes its cue from styles worn by
grown-ups her happiness is complete.
Here Is .a coat which has the long
shoulder and graceful drapery that
rules in the new fall coats for women.
It Is made of velours and is less full
than the coats whose style it follows.
But the arrangement of drapery about
the sleeves gives it an ample look and
makes It roomy, and these things are
the mode for winter - coats. . At, the
back this coat suggests a skirt ;: set
onto a bodice and this effect Is empha
sized by a row of covered buttons
down the center of the body. It Is 'odd
and pretty and girlish.

will gloat. over since he will not lose
his treasures, no matter what position
the fortunes, of war may place bis
anatomy in. A Also a buckle, like that
on the cloth belt, for some reason, has
charms for 'the small boy, that are
lasting. This suit is made of dark
woolen goods, soft finish and with an
indistinct pin stripe. Witn a stiff turn
down collar and gay-plaid tier the boy
looks very trim and well set up in it
For the smaller boy a plain wool
goods is usei to make straight, short
pants and a-moderately long coat.
This is cut with pleats at each side,
and the body is set onto a yoke. A
belt of the? immaterial slips through
slides of It, set n and fastened with
two buttons at the front to make as
surance doubly sure. He may put one
fastening out of commission, but hard
ly two of them at the same time. The
turn-down collar is finished off for
him with a tiarrow tie with tasseled
ends. He may consider this tie a little
.extreme in-style and manage to dis
pense with the tassels.
in Flapper Coats
A small' sailor collar, with three
plaits at each , side, sets an example
which the; sleeves follow by adopting
three plaits for their decoration. Covi
ered buttons, like those on the back
of the coat; finish up the sleeve trim
ming. The coat, falls to the calf of
the leg and hangs straight at the
front. Altogether it is. as pretty as
any model so far brought out for the
coming winter and this Is saying a
great deal to its credit. It Is a con
vincing example of the advantages
that come from expert designing.
Girls from twelve to sixteen need the

DUBIOUS OF JUVENILE G00B1
ludge Conner Fcare That Maximum
Sentences Under tne Law Will
Prove To; Mild.-
Goldsbbro. According to the opin
on of Judge George W. Connor, of
Wilson, who presided over Superior
ZJourt here, the Juvenile Court will
lot prove a success, in this state, and
fudge Connor says that he is afraid,
md much so, that the lawmakers at
Raleigh had gone a little too far in
laving these courts established.
Judge Connor expressed his opinion
Df the juvenile court bill's provision
touching upon the under sixteen
fears of age clause, ana stated that a
large per cent of the criminal cases
tried by the Superior Court judges
were composed of young men of about
sixteen years of age who had violated
the law seriously, from murder on
down the line of petty offenses. Judge
Connor further contends that it is
unwise to turn young men of this
a.ge loose, who had committed serious
offenses upon decent society without
adequate punishment, and with a mild
reprimand and a sort of guardian or
protectorate. He also stated that un
der the new law even a murderer who
Is under 16 years of age cannot be
tried in Superior Court, and predicts
that with the county and juvenile
sourts in working order, there will not
be much left In the future for the Su
perior Court judge to do.
