PUT HEALTH MEASURE FIRST
Value of Proper Civic Conditions Can.
not Be Estimated in Dollars
The cost of public playground parks
and similar recreational features for
the benefit of all our people drops into
insignificance when compared with
the priceless value of safeguarding tte
health of our men, women and clil
dren, and the knowledge that we are
doing our full duty in creating condi
tions which will Increase happiness,
elevate morals and produce better citi
zens. The physique of people in cities
Is deteriorating, and the only way It
can be safeguarded and made more
efficient is through proper provision
of light and air, which are hygienically
basic, and healthful amusement, fun
and recreation, which are the greatest
lubricants for physical welfare and the
greatest protection for moral health.
The ideal of a city, however, must
rise above mere commercial and in
dustrial supremacy, taking the higher
ground of becoming an attractive,
composite home for its residents, both
of large and small means, as well as
for the stranger within its gates.
While the wealthier class of citizens
In any community can build up beau
tiful residence sections on well-laid
out avenues and boulevards, what will
become of those who have neither or
ganization nor money to aid them in
intelligently planning the most meager
comforts of ordinary home surround
ings? The Interests of the inhabitants
of the most unfortunate districts must
be safeguarded.-Chicago News.
FOR BETTER PUBLIC HEALTH
Attention of Rural Communities
Drawn to Necessary Steps in
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Much remains to be done in rural
districts, according to the annual re
port of the secretary of agriculture, to
control such pests as mosquitoes and
the hookworm, to eliminate the
sources of typhoid fever, and, even
more, to give the country districts' the
advantage of modern' hospitals, nurs
ing and specialized medical -practice.
Noting that many agencies, some of
them private enterprises with large
funds, are working for Improvement,
the report says that the department of
agriculture, through its home demon
stration service, is giving valuable aid,
and the public-health service is in
creasingly extending its functions.
To what extent the further projec
tion of effort is a matter for state
or local action remains to be deter
mined, says the secretary, but It
seems clear that there should be no
cessation of activities until there has
been completed in every rural com
munity of the Union an effective sani
tary service and, through the provi
sion of adequate machinery, steps
taken to control and eliminate the
sources of disease and to provide the
necessary modlern medlical anmd dental
faeilities, enalily accessible to the mass
of the people.
Truly Peculiar Bequest.
