Perhaps he is chemistry, geology, or other studies, but in addition if he is a learning all about the farm, he attends the agricultural class under Luther by E. DuBois.

Principal Hyman's communication follows: To. employers of minors under eighteen years of age: It is my duty to inform you that it is illegal for you to employ any mino'rj under-eighteen years of age without! a legal permit to work. For minors under sixteen years of age, the permit to work during school hours is issued by the county superintendent of schools; for those between the ages of sixteen and eighteen, the permit is issued by the Principal of the high school. The penalty for the violation of this law is very severe for the employer. You aije referred to "General Laws Act 3625, Sec. 7, year 1923, Vol. page and "Statutes year 1919 are entombed. page 1047." I ask all employers of minors to investigate the ages of your minor employees and be positive that you are not violating the law. With the earnest desire to co- operate with you for the good of our boys and girls, the above is respect- fully submitted to you for your care- ful consideration. Very truly, >WM. M.

Fifteen others have been rescued alive.' At least fifty C. C. YOUNG TO BE SPEAKER AT CHURCH MARCH 9 It is natural that farm, mechanics and the study of scientific agriculture go hand in hand. In the former clas he youth learns the mechanical prin- ciples of farming and how to make his own repairs. Under Luther E. Du- 3ois, he learns how to make things grow at a minimum cmtptit with a minimum! cost. The course in agriculture as laic out by the school authorities this year consists of three years of study. This was formerly a four-year course, due to crowded facilities and othei reasons, it was impossible to give the advanced study this year. It is th hope of DuBois to next year give the senior study. Nature Of Studies The student upon deciding upon ag riculture as one of the courses he wil iake at the high school, starts hi fust year with the study of bees, in eluding hiving, swarming, bee dis eases nectar bearing flowers, th rearing of queens, etc. This is don because of the fact that all good or chardists use the bees in cross pol ination, which increases the size of their fruit. This is one advantage of bee culture, aside from profits derived from the honey, ac- cording to DuBois United BANDITS ROB GUESTS VAN NUYS, with sawed-off shotguns, five robbers lined up guests at a party at the home of 8.

She stated that several days ago Louis LaDue of Knights Landing, while rowing on the river, discov- ered several horses marooned on a levee a mile and a half above Knights Landing. Returning to Knights Landing, he procured a bale of hay and rowed back to the levee where he fed the horses.
