CThat does not live in hygienic surroundings. CThat ever suffers from undernourishment. CThat does not have prompt and efficient medical attention and inspection. C That does not receive primary instruction in the elements of hygiene and good health. CThat has not the complete birthright of a sound mind in a sound body. CThat has not the encouragement to express in fullest measure the spirit within which is the final endowment of every human being.” v. . Underwood Photo.
