piling up thousands on this thing. It's
in the interest of Vermont.

would have left in Hardwick.
"There arc two things in my plat

W hy is there such determined op
position to health work in the
schools? Because of so much sus
picion. Some parents are opposed be
cause they do not want any defects
tound in their children: otners tear
tne methods of examination which
they sujpect arc adorned. We heard
o, tew days ago that an influential
man m town said that he would vote
against medical inspection because he
would not have his children put into
a room with a lot of others and strip
ped and examined as were the sold
iers. This is only an absurd suspic
ion. Nothing of this kind is ever
done in the school examination so lar
as my knowledge extends.
"Some people suspect that medical
inspection is a scheme of the doctors
to get more practice. Don't you think
present conditions let alone arc a
pretty good promise of work for
"Some teachers object because it is
a nuisance for them to have to make
these health tests. I don't blame
them. It is most absurd to require
teachers to attempt to do that of
which they know nothing.
"Taxpayers object because they
susnect added expense. A few years
ago, I made examination of our
school report, and found that the
town was paying about $4,001) pet
year for children to repeat their
year's work. It was estimated by the
superintendent that three-fifths of
these children failed because of ill
ness. Its costs a good deal more per
year tor a child s education now tnan
ten years ago.
"Under the new law, if a town votes
for medical inspection of schools, the
state provides the inspector free of
expense to the town.
"All the objections to school hygi
ene as it could and should bo con
ducted are purely imaginary, while
the benefits would be untold.-
"I want to describe to you school
h'Hcnr as it is conducted by a phy
sician friend of mine in South
Oran"". N J. There are 1,000 chil
dren in the schpol. The school doc
tor and a trained nurse spend one
half of every dav in the school build
ing. The doctor has an- office (or it
seems more like n pleasant rcrption
room, in the main building. Every
child ij tnken into the doctor's office,
and examined privately twice a year
and a record is kept for comparison
with former examinations. The
school doctor gives no treatment, but
reports jvith recommendations are
sent to the parents. The children
learn to trust and love the doctor as
well as they do their teacher. In fact,
the doctor with her special knowledge
of each child is of ereatest assistance
to the narrnts in getting and keeping
the children well.
"The doctor's salarv is $1,000 rer
year and the nurse's is the same. The
nurse works all day. making home
calls in the afternoons.
"So closely is thf health of the
children inmded that in th eleven

until a doctor should come. The doc
tor, although he was held up at the
Portland street railroad crossing, ar
rived shortly before the ambulance,
and gave Boycc first aid. Later he
was taken to Brightlook hospital.
Crowds of automobiles, hearing of
the accident on the St. Johnsbury
streets or happening upon the scene,
gathered alor- the road and viewed
the car and the Harlev-Davidson mo
torcycle. The front axle of the Ford
was bent back, the radiator split, the
lamps smashed, and the wishbone
bent. It is now at Woodbury and
Bcnoit's n-arage on Railroad street.
The molorclyce's front was demol
