A coocensus or opiuion of many physicians and the majority of,girls physical education direclors throughout the eou)ty is to the ef- fect that girls interscholastic basket hall is not for the best interests of the participants. The athletic board recommends therefore that grls in- terscholastic basketball bc abolished in North Centr;d Washington after this year, and that a varied, care- fully planned, well balanced pro- gra'm of physie'd ,,dacation for them be carried on within each school. It is also recommended that schools when sche ul g football games dur- ing the coming year play lhpir games on Saturdays. Most schools having football teams favor Saturday games as it does not interfere with much of the re'ular school work. The porsonm,l of the district board: O. J.
