Glowing Portrayal of the School of
The little red schoolhouse is poetic
in songbooks and sentimental ora-
tions, but it exacts an appalling toll
in the health of children condemned
to spend much of their youth within
its insanitary walls, a writer in the
Chicago Daily News asserts. The
schools of the future will be built
primarily to serve the health needs
of the growing child and the reward
will be a generation of sturdy citi-
zens with color in their cheeks and a
spring in their steps.
Such is the picture painted by Dr.
Max Saham, professor of pediatrics
at the University of Minnesota and a
leading authority on fatigue in chil-
dren. Doctor Saham, in Chicago in
connection with recent baby week ac-
tivities, holds that while America has
been piling up riches beyond those
of any nation in history, its children
have been drifting toward physical
“One iio children have begin-
ping tuberculosis. Four hundred
thousand have leakage of the heart.
One million suffer from spinal curva-
ture and other deformities. Two mil-
lion have defective hearing, and five
million reveal malnutrition,” Doctor
Saham cited these figures as warrant
for a vigorous effort on the part of
the state to reorganize its education-
al program so as to build up the
health of future citizens.
“Sixty per cent. of the 25,000,000
school children of America attend
rural schools. Hardly a rural com-
munity is without one more un-
sanitary, indecent, unfit schools.
Children are compelled to pass their
days in buildings in which no em-
ployer would think of asking work-
men to toil.”
The schools of the future, rural as
well as urban, “will have fresh-air
rooms, lighting will be from the sun,
seats and desks will be adjustable,
lunches will be served, at least one
wholesome, rational meal a day,
physical education under the leader-
ship of experts will be compulsory
and universal, Doctor Saham believes.
“The weak and defective child,
through corrective exercise in small
special classes, will get its full oppor-
tunity for normal development. There
will be clinics for the diagnosis of
mental as well as physical ailments,
with full time physicians and nurses
watchng the health of the children.
“The teachers will be prepared to
instruct in practical hygiene as well
as in academic subjects. All of this
will be linked up with the home—the
school being considered the day home
of the child.”—Exchange.

Dollar’s Purchasing Power is 61.7
The purchasing value of the dollar
since December, 1925, has increased
nearly 6 per cent. and now stands at
the highest point since July, 1924, the
National Industrial Conference Board
announced yesterday through the As-
On the basis of living costs last
month, the board said, the dollar now

the 1914 dollar. It was lowest in July
