II is tin* opinion of many educators
Hail a week more vacation during the
holiday season does not interfere with
the-year' RWnrk of tin- pupil, for white
the Christmas spirit is in the air then
little else thought of by tho ohiI
liren. Moreover, the longer holiday po
nod brushes the cobwebs from ninny a
