Mrs. Mead gave a most illuminating address before the High School students Tuesday morning charging them to have as a motto, "I am first humanitarian and then an American."

Red Cross Drive:
The number of annual subscriptions to the American Red Cross collected during the past week is two hundred and seventy, and the amount of money donated for local Red Cross work is twenty-one dollars and thirty-five cents. All who have been working on this drive have tried most conscientiously to call at every door. If, however, there is anyone else ready to give money to this cause Mrs. Lucy Redman will gladly receive all subscriptions and donations. The pupils at the Center school, with the help and interest of the teachers, raised fifteen dollars, thereby showing the loyalty and enthusiasm with which they support Miss Chadwick and her health work in the school.
The recess lunch is an innovation that has been most successful and it is well worth a visit to the school to see the sixty or seventy children file into the basement, hand in their milk tickets, quietly take their seats at the tables and drink through straws their half pint bottles of milk, while the older girls pass the cookies for which they collect pennies.
The work that has been accomplished by Dr. Bowen, the visiting dentist, is far reaching in every way. For 14 days, 7-1/2 hours a day he has worked with Miss Chadwick in constant attendance. About eighty pupils have had their teeth attended to. The fact that this clinic has brought within easy reach of every child in Hampton a chance to have his or her teeth attended to at a minimum expense is a great step in the right direction. Teeth are so very important, and it has been discovered that their improper care is responsible for so many of the aches and pains of later life that we cannot begin at too early an age to impress these facts upon our children.
