several times in his five years of
travelling from school totschool, spe-
cializes in profile caricatures but is
also adept at sketches. The carica-
tures, which invariably meet with the
vociferous approval of all but the
subject, take about two minutes each
to sketch, and are then inked to pre-
serve the lines.
The peculiar part of it is that there
are always new victims ready to sub-
mit their classic profiles for the swift
conversion of the discerning eye and
accurate pencil of the artist. Each

complimentary than the last. Per-
haps it turns out to be so, but the
subject never concurs.

ties, saying that the girls dont resent
seeing their features mutilated but

"Like the earth and other planets,
comets move in orbits around the
sun," Professor Ma xw e l1 stated.
"These orbits may resemble an oval-
shaped curve known as an ellipse, or
they may have the shape of an open
curve, known as a parabola, which
includes three-fourths of all comets,"
Professor Maxwell continued by re-
viewing the discovery of the various
comets during the past few years,
showing the number of comets whose
course and position can be calculated.
"'The light of a comet is something
of a mystery," it was shown. "Some
is partly reflected sunlight, but also
seems to be in part a kind of fluores-
cent light excited by the sun's light

meteors," Professor Maxwell said. "If

In order to present the constructive
side of the question of what topics
should be taught under the head of
hygiene, a list of desirable health
education subjects was presented.
This list includes: mate selection to
control heredity disease and improve
health of the offspring; the balanced
diet regulated in amount by body
weight; out of door activity with in-
creased emphasis on personal skill
and less on winning; increased em-

Others are: improved personality

parasitism and the body's defense
against such extraneous organisms;

such as drugs, alcohol, chemicals of
industry, and foreign proteins; the
effect of mechanical injuries such as
