Y.—Summertime is now the safest time ot the year for babies, whereas 40 years ago the summer took the heaviest loll of infant life, according lo Dr. Louts I, Dublin, second vice- president, and statistician of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. This favorable development is n direct result of the control achieved, over diarrhea and enteritis, "summer complaint/' as H was known lo mothers about the turn of the century. In New York State, for example, the death rale from diarrhea and enteritis has dropped 95 percent In the past (our decades— from 32.9 per J,000 live, births in 1904-08, to 1.5 per 1,000 In 194-1-13-16. "It Is a striking fact that In the earHer period the infant death rate from diarrhea an! enteritis alone was matcrinlly greater than is the present death rate under age one from nil cmiws combined/' Dr. Dublin out, FiKidi Kil uca tlo n Credited The progress made against clinr- rhea and enteritis Is attributed lo the improvement in the quality of water, milk, and other foods, the better education of mothers wllh respect lo feeding and care of Infants, and the immensely improved measures of general sanitation. "Great progress h?s also been made In reducing and controlling ninny other diseases and conditions of early life, particularly those of mroumental origin This is reflected In the changing proportion of infant death occurring in the first I month of life. About 40 years ago there were appreciably fewer deaths in the first month than in the re- | niMnder of the first year. At prcs- j cut the number of deaths in the ! first month of life is more than j three litues the tolal for the re- \ maining 11 months of Infancy," \ Dr. Dublin comments, with the ! added point that deaths ii> the first month of life have also been significantly reduced Jn recent years.
