The boys can play better if you are there to cheer, so if you want Hampton to win back them up.

The Health entertainment given by the children of the schools under the direction of the Public Health Nurse and the teachers was one of the most novel and attractive entertainments given at Hampton for many months. The children took their parts with efficiency and zeal and showed that they had been well drilled. Miss Cutts' children did especially well and their physical exercise drill was particularly pleasing. It is hoped that regular physical exercise training may eventually be introduced in the school curriculum. The little Mother Goose children all looked and spoke their parts admirably and the domestic science girls displayed an intelligent appreciation of the importance and values of well balanced diets. All this means better health for our own children as well as for the generations to come. The singing by the entire school was one of the most pleasing features of the entertainment. Everyone must feel better informed in regard to the health work which is being taught in our schools. The short talks by Miss Douglas, New England superintendent of Public Health nursing, were most interesting. And, incidentally, Miss Douglas considers Hampton one of the most progressive towns in the matter of school and public health work which she visits. About $35 was cleared which will be used for supplies which are need in the First Aid room at the school. Special thanks is due to Mr. Crocker who came over from Amesbury to run the Red Cross reel for this entertainment. He has shown a splendid interest and cooperation in this work. Among the needs of the First Aid room was a blanket. Several times children have been taken ill during school hours and brought to the nurse who had to use a coat to cover the child. This was to have been purchased but Mr. Cole very generously took one from his store and gave it to the school. Thank you Mr. Cole! Mrs. Hemingway has been very busy making out the health report cards for the children which will soon be sent out to the parents. Remember her hours at the school will be from 9 to 10 daily during the summer months.
