W "'hpn the American woman left hr place in the home" on elec on day she paved the way for the option of a piece of legislation that will do more for the home perhaps "ian any one law in American tiw ' ory. Early next week congress will onsidr the first legislative propoaal made by the women of America since uniersal suffrage was granted.

Briefly the women ask that the rdera! government, in cooperation tith the states of the union shall ducat a ronne mothers in the mater- nty periods so that they will not only ae the proper knowledge of . ygiene before and after the birth of tneir children, out in neeoy cases. iirses and physicians shall be ready o come to their aid instantly.

The United States stands 14th in the list of civilised countries wh ich have tak en n p the p ro bl e m. New Zealand which has had woman's suffrage longer than any other coun try, stands at the top of the list and has greatly reduced her infant mor tality Great Britain, also has been in the front rank in this movement. The Sheppard-Towner bill, pro posed by senator Sheppard of Texas. Democrat, and representative Town er of Iowa, a Republican, would ap propriate S2.600.000 at first bat with provision to increase It annually till it reaches $4,000,000 and the states of the union would be asked to ap- j propriate dollar for dollar in the same way that the federal govern- ( ment and the states have cooperated ' in building roads. It is not com pulsorv. a state may decline to co operate but probably not many of them will refuse. Now Is Time to StriLe The senate committee on pub. 1c health has reported the bill favorably and senator Kenyon, who has charge of the agricultural bill being die- J cussed in the senate has promised to 1 give way for consideration of the j Towner-Sheppard measure so that it will get prompt attention. The wom en insist that unless they get action this session, preferably next week. I there will not be another opportunity to get the matter before various state 1 legislatures until 1932. As some of i them meet only once every two years. and usually daring January and j February so that postponement of this subject until the extra session of cfloereM In snrtnjr would be hurt ful to the cause. The women leaders declare that 2&6.000 deaths is too mnch to allow. It is three times the number of casualties on the American battle front during the war. And therefore the leaders in the move ment are not disposed to brook in definite delay. Whm women were enfranchised and the activities of suffrage leaders warm ntMsniml as ha vine come to an end. everybody wondered in what direction the energies of the leaders would go. li nauonax women s or ganisations have got together and with a lolnt legislative committee her they have quietly polled mem bers oi uie senate ana n outre ana legislated the details of the measure. Some congressmen were distant at first, thinking the attention of public nurses might be forced upon people, bnt It was legislated that there -were thousands of poor people who would ha frlad to est anr sort of attention and that in no case was It compul sory that aid be accepted. B1H Likely to Pass The Catholic welfare societies and the welfare organisations of other churches have got behind the bill and i tU vwnllt nf ranrresi show that It : will pass by an overwhelming vote. It is Interesting to observe that the bill does not create any new leaerai bureaus or big salary list, me aa mlBtetratlon of the whole thins: will rest largely with the state hygiene public neann Dureaua, prooaoiy m cooperation with civic associations. hn thA whole thine win be sys tematically co-ordained so that the children of America may be safe- vmnM nad the race of American men and women correspondingly strengthened.
