That the school-room is the most
important influence in child health in
the community was the topic develop-
ed by Sally Lucas Jean, health con-
sultant of New York City, yesterday
afternoon in a lecture delivered in the
auditorium of the Dental building.
"Practically every school in the United
States has hygiene instruction," says
Miss Jean. The school-room has been
called the "house of health", and all
schools should strive to deserve this
Miss Jean compared the practice of
health habits to that of dressing.
We observe a certain regularity in
the fashion of dress but neglect this
in the selection of our food. The
school lunch is a great factor in teach-
ing the child health habits. In a
Florida school the children make out
their own menu for luncheon. Each
child in this way learns to select a
well-balanced meal. He is also
taught in a pleasant way to eat un-
familiar foods. To support the school
lunch is one of the happiest ways of
bringing a communityatogether in the
interest of child health.
Shows Health Ignorance
Miss Jean went on to show how as-
tounding is the ignorance of health
practices still existing in the school-
room and nursing class. In a survey
of one of the teacher's colleges it was
found that many did not know such
things as what are the starchy foods
and that disease germs are taken into
the body by carrying the fingers to the
The correction of child defects is
another probem for the schoolroom.
Some of our country schools have in-
stituted the "blue ribbon" project, aj
plan which consists in interesting theI
people of the districts in the means of
securing attention for the defective
child. Although this project will not
work everywhere, all communities
should adopt some unitary plan for
"Until we think of the child as a
whole," says Miss Jean, "we cannot
arrange the best possible school health
program for him." Doctors, nurses,
teachers all must work together.
Each individual in the community;
must do his best.l
Dawn of New Era
It will be many years before all
teachers and nurses can be scientifi-
cially educated, but that does not pre-
vent their having the scientific point1

Miss Bragg stated that in a survey of Pitts
Massachusetts schools the number of Bosto
children who were underweight in a Phihi
group of 8,000 has been reduced from
24.9 per cent to 4 per cent. This was
done largely by placing personal re- I

Prof. Bartlett commented on the adop-

gods into the Batak belief but stated
j that their adoption as the sons of one
of the principal indigeneous gods
pointed to a strong native religion be-
fore the Hindu influence.
