Mothers Of Small Children Face Coming
Of Summer With Dread Of Baby Illnesses
Every woman who is the mother
of small children has a secret'
dread of the summer illnesses and i
irritations that so frequently steal!
the joys from vacations and are
such a strain on a child's health.
According to Dr. Charles Gilmore
Kerley, the famous child specialist,
the very best way to safeguard a!
baby's strength during the summer
is to keep him well during the rest
of the year. He has especially ad-
vised mothers against the summer
dangers of the three F's: flies, fin-
gers, and food, the latter being by
far the most important item.
