Mrs. Draper Long reviewed "Men Against Death" by Paul de Kruif at the last meeting of the book review section of the Woman's club literature department Wednesday afternoon at the Y. W. C. A. Opening her review with reading a protest of the author against dying-, Mrs. Long pointed out that the author emotionalizes science in his book. "The book bridges the gap to the world of science for lay people," Mrs. Long said, "and when you finish the book you realize that you have learned much in addition to enjoying yourself immensely. The author puts scientists in various situations and gives their reactions so skilfully that it'seems fact. If the situations are fictionized, the scien- I tific facts never are." Savior of Mothers. Mrs. Long told the stories of a number of the scientists and their disciveries which are included in the book. The first of these was of Semmelweis, the Viennese doctor whom the author calls "The Savior of Mothers." Dr. Semmelweis as an interne in a Vienna hospital in 183U was appalled at the number of deaths of mothers from childbed fever. It became his passion to discover the cause and he tried everything and finally came upon the idea that the deaths were caused by blood poisoning. He refused to write up his discoveries and so got no credit, although the death rate was reduced from 30 in 100 to 1 in 100 in his hospital. He became insane and died at the age of 41 in an insane asylum. After his death his work was recognized. Insulin Discovered. The second account Mrs. Long gave was of the discovery of insulin by Dr. Banting, a young Canadian surgeon, in 1922. Working on the theory that the cells which are absent in diabetic persons can be transferred from animal to animal or from animal to human, Dr. Banting experimented first with dogs and finally with a friend of his, Joe Gilchrist, who was the first human to b treated with insulin. Mrs. Long told of the work of Alice Evans in discovering that Malta fever can be caught from drinking unpasteurized milk.'

T. A. PLANS LAST MEETING The high school P. T. A. will meet Thursday, April 19, at 7:30 o'clock in the high school auditorium for its last program of the year. The program will be followed by refreshments with the freshmen mothers to charge of entertainment. Dislike for Reading Overcome When Child Realizes Its Meaning By BIIOOKE PETERS CHURCH Sanford was eight years old and at the foot of his class in reading; ! furthermore, he was the oldest boy j in his class. His father, mother, teachers, all were distressed about his inability to read, and about his lack of interest in the subject. But Sandford had an absorbing interest outside of books. When another child would have been curled up in a corner reading adventures or reveling in fairy tales, he, with, pencil, paper and paint-box, was creating these things for himself. He spent every spare moment drawing or observing in detail the wonderful world about him, or the scenes with which his imagination teemed. A book to him was pctures, and unless it was illustrated he rejected it. With such a child the problem may be difficult, but should not be ^superable. Obviously be must have books with pictures. If possible graphs accompanying these. They might give a" short sketch of the artist's life and method of work couched in simple language, which might rouse the child's curiosity to such a pitch that he would overcome his natural disinclination for letters and puzzle the words out. To a child, reading seems an in*, explicable and arbitrary idea on the part of adults. He is slow in realizing that there is any meaning to the little black marks on paper which liis elders for some obscure reason find so absorbing. The connection between the spoken and the written word does not enter his brain at once, and with some children much later than others. Only when he finds there is meaning to printed matter does he overcome his indifference or actua dislike for reading. 250 Present for Annual Instruction North Iowa Counties Send Delegations to Mason City for Session.
