RE. 9732 Next to Perpetual Building Ast’n | Program to Improve Welfare of Mothers, Children Presented Pan-American Child Conference Gefs Reports From Four Committees A far-reaching program to im prove the welfare of children and mothers during war and in the post war world was laid before the Eighth Pan-American Child Congress at the Pan-American Union today in a report from four of its com mittees. The various recommendations were to be taken up by the congress for consideration and appropriate action. The Committee on Essential Serv ices for Mothers and Children in Wartime proposed several plans for intensification of health services, health education, nutrition pro grams, sanitary control of foodstuffs and educational work to counteract the psychological effects of war. A 10-point program was proposed “to obtain the economic stability of the family.” This committee was headed by Dr. Mathilde Rodriguez Cabo, director of child welfare, Mexico. International Office Urged. The Committee on Protection of Mothers and Children in Danger Zones, headed by Dr. Carlos An drade Marin of Ecuador, agreed on the need for an international office which would be charged with such protection in case of necessity dur ing the present war. The Committee on Plans for Chil dren in the Post-War World, headed by Dr. Guillermo Morales Beltrami of Chile, presented a four-point program to the plenary session. It included: “A declaration of opportunities that ought to be open for all chil dren in the post-war world, guaran teeing their family life, their health, their education and other essential rights of childhood; a statement of the problems which can be expected to arise during the period of transi tion from war to peace; a recom mendation for International, na tional and local co-operation ip securing these opportunities for children; a statement of the im portance of strengthening and co operating with the American Inter national Institute for the Protection of Childhood, through the formation of committees in each country which will co-operate with the Interna tional Institute located at Monte video.” Financial Quotas Asked. The committee on Inter-American co-operation presented a specific plan for the extension of the Inter national Institute and for determin ing the quota of financial contribu tions to be asked from each Amer ican nation for the work of the institute. Chairman of this com mittee was Dr. Pastor Oropeza of Venezuela. Dr. Francisco de P. Miranda, president of the Commissions on Nutrition and Family Dining Rooms of Mexico, discussed the congress last night in a radio address. Stressing the importance of the "highest possible standards of nutri tion,” Dr. Miranda predicted "the day will come when a basic food supply will be considered as one of the rights of man as essential in a community as water supply.
