This promise was made in a recent rJuctur.0 ill-Washington by-Ward Shup- anl of the Bureau of- Indian Affairs. It symbolizes' a reform in Indian utU ministration that has long' Ijeeii overdue. ^ As Mr. Shepard says, tin: effort lo "civilixc" Ihe red man according lo while standards vi-as doomed to faiU urc from Hie sliir|;. To IVansplJint' a stoim age people into an intricate in-, dusli-inl" civilization is ;i hopeless Insk. It has led lo confusion, injustice, un- liappiness, ami n serious deterioration uf Indian life. We owe a luigc debt to the Indians, though we don't often realize it. llelp- ing lliein to develop in llieir own \vny will be a partial repayment. 1 understand nil Ihe ,,?:tm mcm cy llicy (Hie Democratic national coiniitUlce) liuve Is cclnc lo buy up Herbert Hoover's book.

Furthermore, health authorities believe that the infant mortality rate is a good measure of- medical and public health elfort. It means that, even during the financial depression, medical and public health officials have held their own In the balllc against disease. It is ol great significance lo realize (hat Portland. Ore.: Spattlc. Wash., and Oakland. Calif., have for several years been anionfc the first wilh Ihe lowest infant mortal-' lt.v rales.

The Infant mortality rate is a reflection- not only of the medical and public health care available in a community, bul also of the social and economic stains, ihc climatli. conditions, and similar lactors. Nevertheless, among the radon of greatest Importance is Ihe pro vision of a clean, carefully controlled food supply. Infant mortal- Hv rates have be.c» lowered pri- nuirlly by ciiUiu L - r. vii 'he num- ber'of deaths from ct)*uucry ami from-, diarrhea! disorders, due lo Infected water and infccte dmilk.
