We Are Patriotic Only In Spots, He Says—Cannot Economize In Care Of tirowing School Children. _ A Children's Clinic is a necessity. A community might easily economize in many directions, but not in cases where the health and efficiency of the future citizen is Involved. Our most precious possisslons are our children, and to consider the health of the chlld dren, is not only an obligation, but a necessity, if the state is to be saved from becoming a hospital for incom petents. Two-thirds of the physical ills that affect the people are the re sult of neglect and ignorance in child hood, and moet, if not all of these could have been prevented by a little expert treatment In the child stage of development. Many a boy and girl have been handicapped all through life because some malady in childhood was neglected or overlooked. In the press of our complex civilization oach human unit needs to be at his best but this Is impossible if the roots of some lnceplent disease have been allowed to fasten upon him In his youth. We are fussy about trained minds and educational equipment, but criminally careleess about healthy bodies, a child with the rickets may have a good brain, but a good brain needB a good body as an efficient instrument. It does not speak very well for boasted children to die every year and multi tudes more to go out Into life blighted by diseases that we took little or no pains to prevent. We have a wrfhder ful knack of tinkering with results, but an almost staid ndeffercnee about preventable causes. We have millions of money for pleasure and show. We spend our fool's ponce freely on things that are merely selfish, but when It comes to great moral and social in terests our economy is almost a pro verb. We are patriotic, but only In spots. We train our boys and girls to appreciate their groat national privi lege, and that is well. At the same time we abrogate (he plain duty of patriotic citizens by balking at the bother and expense of fitting thorn for really worth-while citizens in the vital matter of sound bodies, as well as trained minds. Then there is the question of vicious Labile. Those who make a study of child life know how prevalent these habits are, and how they blight Iho mind and soul as well as the body. Many a child's life has been cursed by habits acquired at a time when he was Ignorant of their damaging effect upon his whole bolng. Teachers know of these habits, parents guess at them, but only the wise physctan cooperat ing with the parent can hope to drul with them successfully, and then only If taken in time. Yes. Ia>t us have a children's clinic by all means. Let somohody with suf ficient authority und skill deal with the question of lnceplent diseases In children, and save the little ones from misery now and later on and give them as good a chance physically as we aro striving to do intellectually.

"Everybody a swimmer, every swim mer a life saver," is the slogan of the American Ked Cross. The methods that are now used by the Ked CroBs are the result of years of study by life saving experts. There ar four definite points to be remembered in life saving and they are as follows: 1— Rescue of the drowning, com prising the approach of a persosn in danger, the location of a sunken vic tim, towing the subject to safety and land carry. 2— Self protection, Including the method by which to guard scientifi cally and humanely from the attacks of those one would rescue. After Treatment Explained. 3— Resuscitation, embracing all means of restoring the apparently drowned. 4— After Treatment. UnlcsB you are a good swimmer yourself and can keep cool in times of excitement such as when a boat over turns, or when one is suddenly pushed into the water, don't attempt to make a rescue. Two may lose their lives instead of one. To approach a subject It Is advis able to approach from the rear or reach out and grasp the arm of your subjoct, quickly swinging him around by pulling him towards you. To locate a sunken victim, awim out to the point where last seen to disappear, duck, dive and swim down, or If the water is not over ten feet, It would be advis able to make ono duck dive after an other by springing from the bottom quickly, taking a breath and diving again. How to Carry. Towing to shore is done by differ ent carries. The head curry, the cross shoulder carry, two-point carry, un der-over-arm carry and tired swim mer carry. Each carry has its purpose. You may us one in bringing in a fight ing subject, another to bring in a tired swimmer, but In each carry you should andoavor to give your subject us much air as possible.
