Children's Bureau Says Half of
300,000 Babies Lost Yearly
Could Be Saved.
Not a single State in the Union has
a thoroughly effective birth regis
tration sstem. according to the flnrt
official circular Issued by the new
Children's Bureau of the Department
of Commerce and Labor.
In 1910 the New England States,
Michigan and Pennsylvania were the
only States where laws were satls
factoiy and sufficiently well enforced
to register nine births out of ton.
and nine out of ten is poor registra
tion, it is fleclared. This country,
according to available estimates. Is
losing 300,000 babies annually, and
at least half of these could be saved
by bringing to bear simple measures
already known to science.
Good vital statistics, the circular
continues, are needed to enable those
working- for public health to detect
bad conditions and select the proper
social remedy for them. Immediate
notification Is necessary so that the
baby born under adverse conditions
may be promptly sent the assistance
to be given by health authorities, vis
iting nurses and other social
"Registration will assist in the en
forcement of child labor laws, says
the circular, "and compulsory educa
tion laws, giving the State an official
record of the ago of Its children. It
will furnish the child an official rec
ord of his age and parentage, which
will secure to 'him the protection
which the laws of his State endeavor
to throw around his childhood. An
official record of birth and parentage
is. moreover, frequently of service in
legal matters and everyday private
affairs, not only in childhood but
