Friday and Saturday, were told by Miss Anita Jones, assistant director of the Maternity Center association of New York, and Miss Alyce Rooney, Des Moines, acting director of public health nursing, stale department of health. The nurses were gathered at an nstitute on maternity care, held under the auspices of the state department of health. They came from Butler, Cerro Gordo, Floyd, Franklin, Grundy, Hancock, Hamilton, Hardin, Humboldt, Kossuth, Mitchell, W e b s t e r , Winnebago, Worth and Wright counties. Similar institutes for nurses in other counties will be held during the next month in Council Bluffs, Des Moines, Sioux City, Dubuque, Davenport, Iowa City and Burlington. Knowledge Not Applied. "The medical profession is no baffled by the causes of death a childbirth; the tragedy is that w do not apply our knowledge to th. great mass of American mothers.' Miss Jones attributes a large par of the blame for needless loss o life to ignorance, negligence anc lack of facilities. "The greatest of these is ignorance," she declared. "Ignorance causes expectant mothers to delay seeking care until it is too late; it causes them to seek inferior care Because they do not know what to expect from their doctor, hospital and nurse;- it causes expectanj 'athers to think they have done verything humanly possible when hey supply the funds to pay the doctor, the hospital and the nurse, no matter what Idnd of care their vives receive. "Many informed mothers suffer unfortunate consequences at childbirth," she declared, "be- :ause they put off the day when hey plan to consult an experi- nced obstetrician. The best of medical care cannot help a woman when it is too late, . nor is he best advice of value if it is ot followed." Program Outlined. Every prospective parent, ac- ording to Miss Jones, should ave detailed knowledge about he early signs o£ pregnancy, how o choose a good doctor and hos- ital, the hygiene of pregnancy, ow to prepare for delivery, the need for expert medical care dur- ng pregnancy, labor, delivery and for six weeks after the baby rriyes. She outlined a complete pro- ram which every expectant mother should follow if she is to eceive adequate care. It is: 1. A complete examination by a competent doctor early in pregnancy. followed by the treatment nat 15 indicated. 2. A dental examination early n pregnancy and the care that is needed. 3. Medical and nursing super- h SI ° n V *i are and instruction hroughout pregnancy. 4. Attention to any problem hat may affect the health of the baby or mother or may disturb her peace of mind. 5.

Maintaining that under the city manager form economy in government has been achieved by reduced salaries and curtailment in ';he number of employes, the Maion City Trades and Labor assembly at its regular meeting in Lhe V. F. W. hall Thursday even- ng passed a resolution to circulate i petition for a vote on changing .o the old mayor and alderman torm. "Ever since the city manager alan has been in effect," the resolution stated, "economy in government has been brought about at the cost ot city employes. The cuts in salaries of policemen and firemen, which occurred during the depression, have never been restored. Wage cutting and the curtailment of the working forces of departments of municipal government is not true economy, at least from the viewpoint of employes, and if the voters o£ the city wish to change the present form of government, the parent body of organized labor is determined to give them a chance to vote on the question." Two other resolutions, one a protest against the appointment oE Works Progress Administrator -·eorge Keller, and the other condemning the General Motors corporation for "refusal to deal with :he automobile workers on a collective bargaining basis and commendation for the attitude of Governor Mui'phy of Michigan in the automobile labor dispute were also adopted by the assembly. At the close of the session a donation of $5 was voted to the Red Cross for the relief ot flood suf- 'erers. It was also voted io give a smoker at the next regular meet- ng, Feb.
