Sanitation in Kentucky Schools My J.OOAN II CKKU9UK, .Tr. ' In this world of various obstacle and numerous jternlexlties, we are bc- in "pinched" on all side )y results of Illegitimate causes. There arc so many questions boforo the wandering minds of the people that no question is receiving prouor Investigation. One 1 Ihnnrv U ndvaneed end brines about considerable agitation for a time, but the cftVct Is destroyed by the Intro duction of a dlfferont Idea. We must clinf,' to a thine until there is nothing of relative importance left. If a.prop ositlon is explicitly placed before us and we ascertain no real value there in, let us drop it; but if a proposition of vast Importance a proposition with tho word "necessity" written upon the face of it and one that requires alert judgment and nccurato action, then let us consider let us look Into it and sec what there Is in it for us. In presenting the subject, Sanita tion, the face value is sufficient to en gage our lmmediato attention. To have sanitary conditions prevailing in our schools will mean the building of better moral character, Improvement of the intellect, and the prolonging of physical life. How many little chil dren go to school and sit all day in an ill ventilated, dirty, filthy school room. Many diseases originate in such school rooms. Tho environment Is sapping the vitality of the innocent youth. We are responsible, not the Infant. Ignor ance Is such a vice! It is ignorance that causes the major part of the crimes of the country. It Is not illiter acy. We know better, but for the sake of a few frivolities, we neglect the paramount duty of our lives the duly to educate. Ignorance Is merely Ignor ing a thing. Sometimes the very thing that is Ignored is an established fact. Illiteracy Is knowing no better; having no general knowledge of a thing. Ig norance is a dynamo which generates nn electrical current that over powers the minds of tho illiterate, careless, indifferent people. Sanitation must be taught in our public schools if we are to hand down to our posterity ho.lthy, intelligent citizens. All of us can ventilate a room; all of us am use a broom; nil of us can use common water. So we have no ex cuse to be untidy. Plenty of pure wat er, both on the outside and Inside, will produce wholesome effects. Teach the child to drink plenty of pure water, teach him to use plenty of soap and scrubbing powders if nece-sary, to keep his physic clean and healthy. We can do this, can't we? Such is sanita tion. Wo are informed by authentic authority that there are children in our county who attend school and for get to wash their faces before going to school. Such should never he in a country like ours. It's not the child's fault. Because most children like to piny in water. It might he on account of the spring being so far from the house and wj.ter is scarce, but that is not logical, It Is rather presumable at this point thatlit is negligence, or per haps, the lack jof home training. So wo may materially aid the children if we teach them cleanliness, neatness and tidiness. We have discussed sanitation from a personal standpoint, let us next look into the environment of the school building, if we are located tn an un healthy place, the school yard low aud wet, no trees in the yard, out house in such a place as to pollute the soil of the yard and form unpleasant odors and create poisonous germs, we should set to work at once to improvo conditions. If you will make the proper endeavor, assistance Is near. The source of the drinking water should be looked after aud the water tested. No food should be allowed to decay near the building, and If one of the neighbor's old horses dies it should not be dragged into the school yard and allowed to decay I mean by this that much attention must bo given to the care of the yard. There is a careless way of living, which, in some instances, by mere ac cident, does not prove to be detriment al to the pursuer. Some people might indulge in every wicked device, drink stagnated water, eat rotten eggs, nev er bathe and live a century, but such is an accident. There is a scientific way of living by which some fanatics soon perish, but the sound-headed, common sensed person has mora assurance of a long life and a life of felicity that is worth living. Don't be the "old fogy" or tho fanatic, but be the "sure-to-win," tho medium. By the efforts that have, been put forth in the'iast few years, the death rate has been decreased several per cent. Let us emphasize tho absolute necessity of sanitation In the home, at school and everywhere. The child de sires to be clean. He will not go untidy in a tidy room, he won't throw bits of waste material on the clean yard, if you tell him not to; he will put all the waste paper into a box, if you will fur nish a box; he will wear clean apparel if he can, provided you do. It's an easy matter to start the child right, if you begin at the right time fn the fight way. Let us improve sanitation in our schools. It can be done by teaching the child to use water freely; to dress tidy; to be clean at hone with milk, water, food, etc , to cultivate a desire for the right sort of living.
