GRAFTON, N.D. -- In April, the Center for Tobacco Prevention and Control Policy (the Center) launched a new marketing cam- paign aimed at preventing North Dakota's children from using to- bacco: The campaign is meant to raise awareness of the ongoing threat tobacco use poses to our children. According to the Campaign for Tobacco=Free Kids, 3,000 children in' the U,S. try tobacco for the first :time everf day and; at this rate, 11,000 North Dakota children will die prematurely because of to- bacco-related diseases. That is largely because the tobacco indus- try spends $25.7 million in North Dakota each year marketing their products to recruit new users. Jeanne Prom, executive director of the Center, says that the tobacco industry spends a majority of their promotional dollars marketing to- bacco products to children. "Tobacco is an industry that kills thousands of its regular cus- dollars towards products like snus and chew that have fruit or mint flavors. Tobacco companies target kids by introducing new smokeless tobacco products that look, taste and are packaged just like candy. rate of 7.8 percent. According to the American Cancer Society, using smokeless tobacco increases the risk of developing cancer of the mouth and throat, esophagus and pancreas.

The ex- tra $7,000 has been pledged by some citizens, who will raise the money in the community. The pouring of the concrete footings began early in the month. Even before the footings were finished, two carloads of Hebron brick were on the ground ready to be used on the exterior walls. At the end of the month the newspaper announced the appointment ot a principal of the new agricultural school, William A. Broyles, who has been a teacher of agriculture at Ellendale Normal school for the past three years. He was born in Indiana and raised on a farm. Broyles will take up permanent residence in Park River in August. School will be held in the Opera House during the fall term, until the agricultural school build- ing has been completed. The Lankin news report mentions that after a lecture by AE Brown a! the opera house, a number of Lankin residents organized a Socialist lo- cal. A day later the total number of members had risen to twenty.

It was rumored that the farm help in the area has been living quite high on the dainties that were left behind. An advertisement in the Park River Gazette sought a new chief of po- lice effective July 1. In addition to his police duties he will be the jani- tor at the city hall, and will be street commissioner. Any citizen of the US may apply--provided that he is a total abstainer. Myrtle Finneseth has just been appointed stenographer at the First Na- tional Bank. She assumes the position of Miss Eva Thompson, who has resigned. The work of repairing and enlarging the Presbyterian (Federated) Church has begun. The church will be raised several feet, and a cement basement set under it. There will be eleven graduates from the local high school this year. Cecil Birder, who is attending Notre Dame, won the 440-yard dash, and the half-mile relay in a recent dual track meet. Ed Anderson is loading up a [railroad] car with farm effects and head- ing for Goose Lake, Saskatchewan. Enoch Wick is looking for land in Alberta.

Skorheim said, "There has been a lot of discussion about what goes where -- we want to make it as clean as possible." Both schools need to have their individual schools in order before the transition is to take place on July 1. At that point the reorganization will take effect and Adams and Park River will become Park River Area School at which time the new school district will be allowed to conduct business and begin operation.
