Big Drop in Infant Mortality
Rate Is Attributed
Columbia Hospital for Women was
highly praised last night by Dr. John
1 A. roote, dean of the Georgetown Unl
j verslty School of Medicine, for the high
; degree of efficiency it has attained in
| its pre-natal work. He was addressing
; the regular meeting of the Monday
Evening Club in the Y. W. C. A.
Dr. Foote's talk dealt mainly with the
recently published report of the Bureau
of Efficiency on public health adminis
tration in tse District.
Mortality Bate Drops.
In the past 30 years, he said, the
infant mortality rate in Washington has
dropped from a high of 350 per 1,000
to a low of 64.9. This sharp decrease
was attributed to the fact that better
and cleaner milk and water are now
available for Infants.
Public education on the matter of
pre-natal care, he said. Is also re
sponsible for the Improvement. He
pointed out that the Infant mortality
rate in this city is much higher among
the colored population and in other
cities among the foreign element. He
urged that special effort be made to
educate colored people.
Report la Indorsed.
Dr. William Gerry Morgan, president
of the American Medical Association,
also discussed the report in a general
way, indorsing its major recommenda
In a general discussion following the
addresses, members of the club urged
immediate action to carry into effect
the recommendations in the report.
They pointed out that President Hoover
is keenly Interested in child welfare and
would be apt to lend his support to any
undertaking designed to improve con
ditions in Washington.

Col, Walter C. Cole Replies in Let
ter to Representative
By the Associated Press.
DETROIT, January 21.—A defense of
the Reserve Officers’ Association of the
United States, particularly of its activi
ties in sending representatives before
congressional committees, was made in
a letter from Col. Walter C. Cole, na
tional president, to Representative Col
lins of Mississippi, which Col. Cole
made public last night.
The letter was inspired by remarks
of Representative Collins on the War
Department appropriations bill cm Jan
Declaring that “it is a great disap
pointment to learn that there is a mem
ber of the House of Representatives so
much in ignorance of the purpose of the
national defense act,” Col. Cole made
his defense in the form of questions ad
dressed to Representative Collins, each
query beginning with the words, “Do
you know” or "Do you believe.”
The principal points were:
That the association has never been
affiliated with any political, religious,
sectional or secret organization.
That it has never asked Congress or
any governmental department for a
favor or privilege for a member.
That representatives of the associa
tion never have asked a congressional
committee for anything which does not
legitimately come under the provisions
of the national denfense act.
