EDITORIAL"How Christmas Seals protect the Health of our Community" is the theme of the 1945 School Newspaper project. All school papers in the state are eligible for participation no matter how large or smalland a Certificate of Honor will be presented to all schools whose papers are selected for contributions in the form of news stories, feature stories, or editorials. Last year in Caldwell, St. Maries and Plummer won recognition. And there isn't any reason at all why New Plymouth can't be one this year.
This issue is our contribution to, the state contest. All of us could not have been selected for the honor stories, there were too many contributed, yet each and every one of us can buy the T. B. seals.
Now that the war is over and our strife for peace has been maintained, scientists have turned away from the military back to the laboratories. Atomic energy is only one of the leads in discovering a cure of this dreaded disease. And with your help in this nationwide drive the money will hasten this timely discovery. Really get in and dig this season.
Payette County alone had seven cases in 1944. Ninety-five cents out of every Seal Sale dollar stays within the state in which it was raised. Five cents supports services of the National Tuberculosis Association. Once the people of the U. S. wish to prevent the rise of tuberculosis, common in wartime, it is within our power to do so. So please buy all you can for this is one of the truly great causes.
SPORTSThe Pilgrims will open their basketball season December 6 at Payette where they will take part in the Snake River Valley Jamboree.
Our first game will be here December 10 with the Northwest Academy from Nampa.
This year we will enter a Sub-District Tournament which will be held at Homedale February 8, 9, 11, 12.
THE CHIP BASKETA National Assembly will be held in the high school auditorium Tuesday, December 4, at 9:09 a. m. Galen Miller, known as "Keep 'cm Laughing" Harvey will be featured in fun and music at the piano. Evereyone is invited to attend. Admission 25c.
Six weeks tests are being given to the high school students this week.
Four new students entered New Plymouth High School this weeks. They are: Nadene Donner, a Sophomore, Laura Donner, a Junior of Emmett, Don Hendrick-son of Duluth, Minn, and Albert Burke of Vale, both Sophomores.
CHRISTMAS SEALS PROTECT THE HEALTH OF OUR COMMUNITYAbout Christmas time, on some cold afternoon just as you've settled down with your magazine or book, there will come a faint rapping at the door. Quite disturbed, because you have to get up right in the interesting part, you answer the door, and what do you find but some small child, who asks you to buy some Christmas Seals. In a hurry you give them ? nickle or dime not even stopping to think what its all about.
That is the trouble with most of us because our homes and families haven't been struck by the dread disease of tuberculosis. I don't have to go into detail to describe it. Everyone knows what it is. But the trouble with most of us we don't think of the people who have it and don't have the money to be treated. That is why we are buying seals to fight this disease. For anybody, even in our own community, can contract it. Even if you give a penny it will help. I don't think of anything else that could be more noble, or helpful than buying these seals. For some day this disease will be crushed and as common as a cold for treatment. Then we will be able to relax with a sense of satisfaction of a job well done.
CHRISTMAS SEALS PROTECT THE HEALTH OF OUR COMMUNITYPart of the money made from the sale of Christmas Seals each year is kept in our county. Each town is allotted a part of this money, according to the amount of sales they made. I believe, in our community this money is handled through a committee of women of the American Legion Auxiliary. They use this money as they see fit, according to the needs of the community. One year I they provided for a rest room in the grade school. This room is used by the county school nurse and in case of sickness in the school room.
They also provide for a test of tuberculosis to be given to every school child. This test will show whether the child has a reaction to tuberculosis. Plans are underway for a nurse sent out by the State Anti-T. B. Association, to give the tuberculosis test in the schools of our county this winter If a child reacts to this tuberculin test X-rays are taken to determine the stages of this disease. The child is then sent to a hospital or rest camp and is given the proper nourishment, exercise and sunlight necessary to combat this disease.
It is also known that we can get tuberculosis through cow's milk. Tests for cows are given to determine whether or not the cow has tuberculosis. This helps prevent the spread of tuberculosis and, of course, saves many lives.
Tonsilectomys are given to the pre-school children. This helps to prevent the children from having run-down systems and makes them not so apt to contract tuberculosis.
These are a few of the many protections offered in our community through the sale of Christmas Seals.
CHRISTMAS SEALS PROTECT THE HEALTH OF OUR COMMUNITYHere in our own community the need for care of tuberculosis patients does not seem so pressing as in other localities, yet there are many people who have tuberculosis, needing care. Tuberculosis has been the greatest killer of all communicable diseases but it is now being combated.
Through the sale of Christmas Seals, sponsored by the National Tuberculosis association, our state and county have been doing much toward the prevention and cure of tuberculosis. Ninety-five cents out of every dollar stays in the state, so you can see that quite a headway can be made against tuberculosis. Although our community does not have a sanitarium or hospital for the care of tuberculosis patients, we are doing many things to prevent it. All these things are made possible by the sale of seals.
One of the many types of tuberculosis is bovine tuberculosis. Humans are susceptible to this type. It is caught by drinking milk of tubercular cows. One of the projects for preventing tuberculosis has been to eliminate all diseased cows in Payette county. Since this is a dairy section, this work is important. Most of the tubercular cows have been eliminated thus destroying our cause of tuberculosis.
Another project of the state and county has been to provide milk to all school age children. Milk is one of the important factors in improving health in our children, hence preventing tuberculosis. School children have been given tuberculin tests for many years. This is a single test and all children should have it. If tuberculosis is found in the early stages it can be cured before too much damage is done. This has been a state and nationwide project.
The county has also provided tonsil operations for all who needed them.. This is another indirect step in preventing tuberculosis.
X-rays are one of the most succesful ways of finding tuberculosis if a person is a suspect. Paying for these X-rays is another way in which seals help in the fight against tuberculosis.
Education of the people is also very important. The National TB Association has put out many pamphlets describing the cause, prevention and cure of tuberculosis.
These are only a few of the many things that are being done in our community. You can see bow important it is that we all buy Christmas Seals. It is the only way this work can go on and we don't want to let it down. This year won't each of you buy as many Christmas Seals as possible?
CHRISTMAS SEALS PROTECT THE HEALTH IN OUR COMMUNITYThe sale of Christmas Seals has always been an important event for as long as I can remember. This year it is more important than ever because there are more cases to battle than ever before.
The problem of prevention involves several factors. One is an early diagnosis, which not only helps the patient, but enables him to keep from infecting others. A valuable aid in establishing the diagnosis is the tuberculin test. To do this requires money.
Those who fall victim to TB die of neglect - neglect of the individual to learn modern methods of diagnosis and scientific treatment; neglect by the community which fails to provide effective means to prevent the spread of the disease.
The schools throughout the United States are asked each year to canvass the neighborhood surrounding their school to sell as many seals as possible. There is a contest each year, too, to see which class in each school can sell the most seals.
TB must be prevented. It can be prevented if the people will cooperate with official and voluntary agencies in our community in the fight against this disease. It is said that "The first and greatest need is education; education of the people and through them education of the state".
Ninety-five cents out of every Seal Sale dollar stays within the state in which it was raised. Five cents supports services of the National Tuberculosis Association.
Let us all get behind this drive and back it to its full extent so that our state, as well as our community, may have all it needs to carry on this great cause.

SAWDUSTThe Juniors of New Plymouth High School practically walked away with the Inter-Class Tournament Laurels last week winning the last game from the Seniors 33-14. Early in the tournament the Juniors got off to a fast start by drubbing the Freshmen 40-4 in the second game of the day, as the Seniors topped the Sophomores in the initial game. The following, day the Sophomores defeated the Freshmen 14-13.
JUNIORS WIN TOURNEY
FRESHMEN PARTYEveryone arrived early so as not to miss anything, but finding the -mor locked they used the south windows.
When Mrs. Goldsmith arrived, the dancing begun, a few games, and then more dancing. Refreshments were served and gobbled down fast by Robert S., Claire G. and Ronald W. ate their share also.
All helped clean-up and as the evening was still young many went to the Odd Fellow's dance. Some "prominent" couples were Margie B. and Ernest T., Mary C. and Ronald W., and Juanita M. and Eugene R.
JUNIOR CLASS PARTYThe Juniors gathered at the hall about 8:15 for one of their famous parties. Dancing was the evenings main event. All of the prominent Junior couples were present including a few customary stags. Another of the evenings main events besides the pop, sandwiches and potato chips was the fascinating game of "who could tear down the most decorations". All vied for top honors.
The needle on the phonograph finally played out and Annette G. played the piano until she too was nearly at the point of exhaustion. Elva W. then tried her hand.
The advisor called the evening | a success about 11:30 and closed the building.
