Bruno, profes- scr of Sociology at Washington University here. In a study of tiie casual relation between illness and dependency he found 83.1 per cent of St. Louis families receiving charity were also in need ol mcilicnl care and that 2.37 per cent were physically disabled. A study of 22,000 deaths reported by 12 insurance companies reveals a higher death rate among the poorer classes, Bruno reiwrted The infant mortality rate increases definitely as the income^ of the parent declines, he ulso reported. foung Megapod Must Literally Scratch to Live WASHINGTON.
