"As business or professional men or farmers we are apt to be too busy making money to think of our boys and girls. Wheat is the basic indus- try of this country, regardless of our particular occupations. If some man were to come along, advertise that he could show us how to make two bush- els of wheat grow next year where one grew this year, and give ':eason- able assurance that he knew what he was talking about, every huMness man. every professional man and every farmer in Palouse or sttrrouud- ing territory would rush to scar him in such numbers that no hall in the town would be large enough for the audience. On the other hand, I am wondering if the people in thi~ town are many of them like the ones in other towns I have known. When some person comes along with a pl'~h for growing better boys and girl.q, the value of which cannot be measured In terms of dollars and cents, Instantly many people shake their heads and say we cannot afford It." In summing up his address, the speaker stated that parents must be made to realize more forcibly that parenthood is a privilege which car- ries with it duties and responsibilities which cannot be shunned or avoided without disastrous results. The home is the basis institution on which all other institutions depend. Without the right kind of homes, the school, the church and the state are helpless, industry itself would fail and our whole social and economic structure would go to ruin. Xenodican Club Meets After a six weeks vaetation the Xenodican Club met at the home of Mrs. E. E. Boone and again resumed its work for the ensuing year. After the business session, which was devoted mostly to the further- ance of the public library, a dainty hmeheon was served by the hostess The club wil meet ,with Mrs. dispute in which a large amount of money is involved we want the best legal assistance available. Likewise when we want our appendix cut out or some other difficult operation per- formed on our bodies we want the most skilled surgeon available. Stan- drrd medical schools today require that a physician must have six years' training ~tbove the high school hefore he can receive a diploma licensing him to practice on our physical bod- ies. That is just as it ehould be, a~td- we do not stop to figure the cost of a physician's services when the physical welfare of a son or daughter is in- valved. On the other hand w~*do sometimes stop to count the cost and ask whether we can afford it or not when the matter of securdng a well- trained teacher for the mental wel- fare of our boys and girls is being eonsidered. As for my own daughter, if I were placed with my back to the wall. where I had to choose between her mental and physical eyesight, I would choose her mental eyesight every time. If I had to make a choice I would far rather she would lose her physical eyesight than the intellect- ual acuteness and brightness of her little mind. "'But we must not place all respon- o.ibility for the intellectual training of our children on the teacher. To il- lustrate, if I let nay daughter say 'git' and 'jist.' 'is' for 'are.'

I have no right to com- plain tbat the schools are no good if the child does not learn to use good English. The fault is" my own," Mr. Lazenby explained that he could talk about his own daughter and had to answer to no one but Mrs. L::ze,~by. while it was a much more dangerous thing to talk about o~her oeople's boys and girls. Continuing, Mr. Lazenby said: "I have met parents who openly stated that they had to work hard all lheir lives and that they wanted to give their children an education so that they would not have to work. Such teaching is a curse to the child. Dean Millet of the University of Washington stated in a recent Spo- kane address that of 'the 2700 frez~h men who applied for admission to the California that the Tokay grapes grown there were sold recently for $250 per acre on the vines. Mr. Shropshire states that he has grow- ing on his ranch Tokay grapes, al- 'mends, walnuts and peaches, and that his income front the ranch furnishes :him with a comfortable ilying. HIOH SCHOOL STUDENTS WANT ATHTELIC FIELO Fmnzen Puts Matter Up to Chamber of Commere~ at Lanchean Saturday. The Chamber of Commerce lunck- eon l~lff hint Saturday was marked by several interesting talks by mem- bers and others concerning plans for social and civic improvements for the city of Palouse. Chief of these was a talk by high school coach Ed Franzen, in which he stated that in- asmuch as he Was an alumnus of the Palouse High School and at present was employed as athletic director of the high school that he was veryi much interested in the welfare of the schools. He brought up the matter of an athletic field for the high school athletics and layed a proposition before the chamber or commerce whereby he thought a suit- able field could be obtained. He had his drawings and diagrams with him and entered into the feasibility of securing such a field and told very definitely how one might bc secured. During his talk he filed application !'or membership in the chamber of commerce and was accepted. A committee consisting of Mr.Fran- ten, Mayor Heckner, J. B. Dudley, Thee. Luesing and A. P. Murray was appointed to consider Mr. Franzen's proposition and make investigation. I. C. Peterson brought up the matter of the crowded condition of the schools. His talk was followed by R. W. Elder, principal of the south side building, who said he had nothing to say further than what everybody knew and said that the school board was fully aware of the situation and that if it could in any way arrange to relieve the sit- uation it was ready and willing to do so, President Ja C. Northrup then called on Mrs. Ethel Wood, who was present, for a talk and she gave a very interesting talk outlining her plans for the Girl Scouts and told something of the work already done. She asked for the cooperation of the chamber in furnishing the girls o: the city with suitable means of re- creation. Her talk was ~llowed by Rev. ~V. M.
