THE BAKEUSFIKLD CAMKORNIAN. TUESDAY, AUGUST 25. 193fi S0CIA Film Health Program Nets Dividends to City Pupils O NE of the most' extensive and successful health programs ever conducted In the Bakersflold city schools was carried through successfully In 1835-30, Judging from the annual reports ot Miss Dorothy Somcrvllle, nurse Inspector and her assistant Mrs. Winifred Saala. The reports were on flic today til the office of L. E. Chcnowcth, city uupoi-- inlendcnl ot schools. Complete physical examinations were given to a total of I486 boys and girls by Dr. Harry Lange and Dr. C. T. Mcade, part-time physicians, employed by the school dlslrlct during the year. Each physician spent three hours a week doing general examinations and special physical examinations. Extensive Examination A lotal of 1608 eye, car, noso and throat examinations were given and among the cases recommended to private physicians for treatment were, vision, 134; noses, 170; lids, 638; ears, 3; throat, 472, and teeth, 44, and suspicious glandular, 1. A total of 080 complete physical examinations were given, 810 seventh'apd clghlh grade boys were given heart examinations; a total of 3014 tuberculin tests were given, and children with detrlmenlal health defects were recommended for treatment to family doctor. This was the, first time health examinations were provided to children throughout the schools, and those who soqmed to show the great- esl need were selected first. As time permitted routine work was done In grades, one, four and 7B. In addition to the tuberculin tests, other preventive work was carried on. A total of 330 children were given Immunization agalnsl diphtheria, 390 against smallpox. A total of 2261 children were weighed and measured and 27 were given noso and throat cultures. A lotal of 1213 children were given audiometer tests and children with defective hearing were recommended for treatment. Miss Somervillc wrote in lier final report: "Because of this the special selection of grades for the pupil examination, the findings of defects by both doctors are higher than they would bo for an averago group of children. »Wo. will be glad when every child has had at least one complete physical examination, but a very encouraging beginning has been made. "A total of 11 heart cases were found among the 810 heart examinations and 17 were found in the tiSO general examinations. Parents seemed most appreclallve of the knowledge of heart, glandular and abdominal findings as many were unaware of tho conditions. Follow- up examinations revealed that definite Improvement had been made after special care hnd been given by the family physicians. "The corrections made Include the following: eyes, 140, fitted for glasses; 155, seating adjustmpnl In class; 73, change of lenses; ear, 111,, seating adjustment In class; 73, removal of wax; 4, lip-reading; throat, 186 tonsil and adenoid removals; teeth, filled, 829: stralghlened, 69; pulled, 981; postural defects, back, 29; shoulders, 38; knees, 26; ankles, 23; feet, 53 skin blemishes Improved, 141; exlra' nourishment, 209; restricted exorcise, 180; extra rest at school, 160; extra rest al home, 264. "A total of 24 children were admitted to tho preventorlum at Kcene. •"One hundred and four children were cared for In sunshine school and rest classes al Lincoln and Hawthorne schools. Concentration on a limited number of children who are In most desperate need of physical attention not only gives tho child resl and extra nourishment he needs, but also results In obtaining a much higher percentage of correction of defects. These defects are frequently at .the basis of tho extreme mal-nutrltlon. Also these classes have proved Ihelr worth with the heart cases who had restricted exercise or rest substituted. Improvements and accomplishments ot this group have been particularly fine this year. It has taken a long time, strong courage and plenty of Intcrast and patience on the part of the nurses and teachers who have been In charge since Its beginning to bring it up to the fine standard It now has. "Health education was also a part of tho curriculum. Miss Ruth Williams was a member ot the health instruction staff an sworlng- emergency calls from the 14 city buildings. In her report special tribute is paid to Miss Williams by Miss Somerville, tho former having retired after 18 years of service in the schools. The nurse-lnspeclor said of her co-worker; "During the past 18 years, Miss Williams has been city school nurse. For 12 years, she worked alone. During the past six years she has seen rapid growth In enrollment and marked development In tho Interpretation of the school health program. "Hers has been a lifetime of ac live service for humanity—beginning during the last century In the Spanish-American War. Now in tho middle sixties, she Is retiring, happy In the work she performed, loved ant respected by all who have known her."
