NOT PROYIKG SUCCESS
An Average of Only five
Children Dauy Are
The free kindergarten furnished by
the Surgical Dressing department of
the Red Cross is not proving a very
successful experiment as there has. been
hardly an average of five children a
day to eare for and Wednesdav there
In order to secure the heln of mothpra
. . i.
wno nave small children, this depart
ment made arrangements whereby child
ren snould be given kindergarten work
free from the hours of 9:30 to noon and
from 1:30 to 4:30 in tho afternon. The
mothers were to bring their children to
the postoffice where an automobile
would convy them to the Garfield
school. Unless there are more who wish
to take advantage of this offer, the
free kindergarten will be discontinued.
According to Mrs. M. L. Meyers in
charge of the surgical dressing work.
the working girls who have been giving
two evenings a week hav proven to be
enthusiastic patriots and have done es
pecially good work the past two weeks
helping to get out the special quota of
army dressings. Within a week or so,
as -soon as this speeial work has been
cared for, tho- women who are giving
their time to this patriotic work will
devote their time to sphagrum moss.
While there is a lot of work for ad
ditional workers, Mrs. Meyers says the
women of Salem are to be eommended
for tho interest taken in the surgieal
dressing department and the way in
which they have responded to the call
from timo to time when headquarters
has asked that the quota be largely in
creased. Case of Disspondency
Despondency is often caused by in
digestion and constipation, and quickly
disappears when Chamberlain's Tab-
tots are taken. These tablets strength-

us that one of our great war prob

identical with that confronting the

America needed wooden ships a
century past as. she does now. At
Salem, "the witch town," there was
building a frigate, or war vessel, "a
noble structure to maintain our
rights upon the seas." Knos Briggs,
the contractor, found the work we

was not promptly forthcoming. Soi
