There is a sentiment growing in
Polk county in favor of the election
of our County Superintendent of
Schools by vote, instead of by appoint
ment, as at present. Quite a number
of our citizns from all parts of the
county have expressed themselves to
us, some against, but by far the
greater number.in favor of the move.
All of those who spoke to us favoring
the election over the present method,
said it was their earnest desire to do
all they could to help in upbuilding
the school system of our county and
that' it was also their " earnest desire
that there be no politics of any -kind
mixed' with our school system; to lay
aside all questions of party affilia
tion and to vote for their candidate
for County Superintendent upon his
qualifications as a school executive
regardless of his party affiliations.
The originators of this move are
both democrats and republicans, men
who are interested in the betterment
of the school system of Polk county;
and their reason .for favoring this
move is that -they believe it for the
best interests of our schools to make
this change. They have no fight to
make upon any man or set of men, but
are only trying to do wiiat they horf
estly think will result in better
schools of the entire county.
Our school system has -reached a
stage where it needs a superindent
on the job twelve months in the year.
We want the best man we can get for
the position and think he should be
paid enough salary to - justify him
giving his entire time to the duties of
the office, as it is impossible to do jus
tice to our school children with any
thing less. Polk county's greatest
asset today is its children. Let us
give all of them as good education as
money can buy.
If you are in favor of good schools
and want to see old Polk stand at the
head of the list, educationally, make
your arrangements to attend the
meeting to be held at . Columbus on
the first Monday in January, 1920. It
does not matter whether you favor
election or not, be on hand and give
your idea. Perhaps you may have a
better plan. If so be there and tell
.us about it. ;

URGE RED CROSS SEAL
DAY IN ALL SCHOOLS
Surgeon General Blue Asks That
Churches Also Join in Move
ment to Further Sale
The 1919 sale of Red Cross Christ
mas Seals will begin on the first day
of December. With the opening of
business on that day an army of vol
unteer salespeople will sound "Buy
Red Cross Christmas Seals!" the call
to arms In the war of-extermination
against tuberculosis. The sale will
extend through December 10th.
The annual Red Cross. Christmas
Seal sale provides the chief income
of the National Tuberculosis Asso
ciation and its one thousand affiliat
ed associations which are in the very
forefront of anti-tuberculosis organi
zations. The 1920 programme of the
allied organizations calls for greatly
increased activities. To meet this
extension of effort a combined bud
get of more than $6,500,000 is re
quired and with this goal In view the
intensive sales appeals will be made.
A recent health sufVey resulted in
startling disclosures. Until the snr
vey tuberculosis experts were, to i
large degree, In the dark as to the
real extent of the ravages of the dis
ease In this country. All doubt on
this point has been cleared up and
the estimated total of active cases is
placed above the 1,000,000 mark. To
; search out every case of tuberculosis
fn the country is the ultimate aim of
the National Tuberculosis Associa
tion and its allies.
Teams are being formed In every
community. Business men are form
ing sales organizations and similar
bodies are being organized by former
INVEST IN HEALTH BONDS
Dividends in the Form of a Reduced
Tuberculosis Death Rate will
Surgeon General Rupert Blue has
issued an appeal to observe Christ
mas Seal Day In the schools and in
all places of worship in the United
States, December 5, 6 and 7. The ap
peal follows :
"Over one hundred and fifty thou
sand Americans die annually from
tuberculosis. This is an appalling
waste of life when we consider that
tuberculosis is classed as a prevent
able disease. Moreover, because this
loss of life occurs almost entirely In
the ranks of the young adult - popula
tion, health authorities - the' world
over have come to consider the "con
trol of tuberculosis as . still the' most
pressing health' problem confronting
them. Every year the National Tu
berculosis Association, by selling Red
Cross Christmas seals, raises a consid
erable sum of money to be used in a
nation wide campaign to combat tu
berculosis. This year a special ef
fort is being made to interest school
children" in this work and Decembei
fifth, sixth and seventh have been
designated as days on which the
eeals are to be sold in the publiq
schools, synagogues and churches.
Because of the seriousness of th
situation, I trust that the campaign
this year will be particularly suc
cessful. "RUPERT BLUE, Surgeon General,
United States Public Health service".
The National Tuberculosis Associa-
tlon and its . 1000 .affiliated organiza
tions offer this yearrinv addition to
the Red Cross Christmas Seals, Health
: Bonds on which annual dividends in
the form of fewer new cases of tuber
j culosls and a reduction in the white
j plage death rate will be paid. The
bonds have been issued for the coh-
vonience of those who cannot use the
number of seals their contributions,
will call for:
Do not wait to be URGED
to buy Red Cross Christ
mas Seals. 4
Go to the local campaign
headquarters and make
your donation. Every seal
sold is a blow at TUBERCULOSIS.
Within two weeks over a billion
Red Cross Christmas Seals will be on
sale In every nook and corner of the
United States'. These seals are sold
to finance the campaigns against tu
berculosis in this country. Of even
dollar received from the sale of Red
Cross Christmas Seals, 91.7c remain
in the state where the seals are sold
for the benefit of the organized anti
tuberculosis campaign in that state. ;
Out of the remaining 8.3, the ex
penses of running the campaign ar
first deducted, and whatever is left la
then divided between the American
Red Cross and the National Tuber
The Red Cross Christmas Seal cam
paign is not for the purpose of financ
ing the work of the American Red
Cross or its chapters. It is for the
purpose of financing the National Tu
berculosis Association and the various
state tuberculosis associations. The
Red Cross Christmas Seal, launched
in 1908 by the American Red , Cross,
has been issued in the name of the
Red Cross since that date. In March
1919 the American Red Cross agreed
to allow the National Tuberculosis
Association to use its. name andv em
blem on the usuab Christmas seal.
This year the Red Cross has no other
part in the Tuberculosis' Seal Cam
paign. The Red Cross Seal is Tu
berculosis Seal. Those who buy - it
are supporting the tuberculosis work
in their own communities!
To support the programs of work
outlined in the forty-eight states and
insular possessions for 1920 in such
a manner that results in the -savinf
of thousands of lives may be realized,
will demand the sale of at least 650,
000.000 Red Cross Seals at one cenl
each. Tuberculosis can be suppress!
