SAYS BRIDES RESORT TO "ANY
Dr. Albert A. Ogle of Indianapolis
has explained .in detail to a Day
Book reporter what he meant when
he declared in a speech before the an
nual convention of the American In
stitute of Homeopathy that the
teaching of some mothers caused
brides to resort "to any measures"
to prevent childbirth during the

childbirth records are low.
"Such conditions in almost every
case result in driving husbands from
their homes to indulge themselves
elsewhere," continued Dr. Ogle. "The
layman must know the truth and

proper teaching to supplant criminal
prudery of parents can conditions be
