This July 5,1921. J. N. RUDDLE, Clerk. Geo. R. Kenney, Sol. for Complt. ?-4t , .', ' , One of the very important services which a Public Health Nurse may render to any community is that of observing the conditions of the school children. It is always neces sary to know it the school children of a community are physically sound. Each year new children enter the schools and these children as well as those already in school should be in sound physical condition. If they are nqt they cannot possibly accept and use the education which our schools offer and It is quite as much a public duty to put good health within the reach of our children as it is to put education. For this reason many schools throughout the country include a thorough physical examination of the school children as a part of their regular work, but in those schools where this is not done a Public Health Nurse may well include this as a part of her regular day's work. Such a nurse has many opportunities to observe the school children and because of her practical eye, she is able to note when they seem physi cally defective and closer examina tion usually reveals the cause. The signs of mal-nutrition, for Instance, are very easily recognized and by us ing any good pair of scales the Public Health Nurse may soon determine by the child's weight if it is physically below par and it becomes a part of her duty to explain this o parents and make them understand how even an apparently well boy or girl maj really be in need of special attention In places where physical examl nation of school i3 regularly under taken as a part of the school work the nurse is still an important part of this work for it has been proven by statistics carefully compiled that where such a nurse visits the homes and explains the condition of the child to the parent 80 per cent of the physical defects are corrected while in places where there are no nurses only 20 per cent of corrections are, made. Recent examinations of school children have revealed a surprising number of small sufferers from va rious forms of heart trouble, and when such cases are found the Pub lic Health Nur3e is a wonderful help in supervising' trie hours of work for these children; in explaining the dangers of over-exercise and in di recting the kinds of play which it shall be permitted. This informa tion 13 invaluable to both teacher and parent. Prof. P. P. Claxton, U. S. Commis sioner of Education, speaking of this subject says: "Health 13 the first ob Ject of education; among the various agencies involved In an effective pro gram for guarding the health of the school children and teaching them health habits none is more important than the school nurse. More school nurses are needed. A school system without a school nurse is an lncom plete system. : If a nurse in a given community cannot be employed for this alone, the Public Health Nurse may devote a fixed portion of her time to this special work. It has been estimated that of the 22,000,000 school' children in the United States 16,000,000 are suffer ing from some form of physical de fect. No examination by any physi cian nor any suggested treatment could change this condition unless the understanding of the parents is had' and the ; co-operation and con sent as- well. By that .means alone can these children be given the at tention they demand. The Public Health Nurse by her visits to the home and by her untlr ing efforts to explain to parents what their children need, has become the greatest possible help in securing health for those children most in need of it. Many of the physical defects found in children are simple and can readi ly be corrected during childhood; these, however, if neglected become grave and result in physical condi tions which endanger health in the grown up person. All of these dan gers a Public Health Nurse can' ex plain to parents without unduly alarming them. This work is al ready being undertaken by a Public Health Nurse in may places through out the country and coupled with the general work she does, especially to that given to expectant motrTcrs and to babies, constitutes one of the most important forms Of service which may be rendered for a home, a fam ily or a nation. For this reason the Red Cross Chapters employing1 Pub lic Health Nurses are strongly urging the health of children as a feature of the work of all' such nurses and one which must result in inestimable good to the community and thus to the nation.
