The Park Hospital Has Served This Community for Quarter of a Century In 1909, 25 years ago, the Park Hospital was established in Mason City. This modem institution, centrally and conveniently located at the Northwest corner of the City park, has served and progressed with this community for a quarter of a century. The great mission of the Park Hospital is to guard public health, care for the sick and In-' "*" jured, and to bring little tots into the world. It has given faithful service day in and day out, and the clientele has steadily grown. View of the Nursery at The Park Hospital This view, to the left,. shows the "first home" for many tiny boys and girls. Hundreds of wee tots have spent their very first days and nights in the Nursery at the Park Hospital. Jn t h i s department little ones receive continuous car.e and motherly attention. And then they ara t a k e n to their homes and mothers commence singing, "Rock-A-Bye Ba'ay, in the Tree Top." P A R K H O S P I T A L NORTHWEST CORNER OF CITY PARK MASON CITY, IOWA Long Life New Deal's O f f e r i n g Professor at Columbia Sees Planning for Health. By Haven Emerson, M. D. Professor of Public Health Administration, Columbia University. Never in American history were there so few little children among us or so precious. And never since the records of human births in the United States became trustworthy did so many of the children born live to become grandparents. In the "good old days" babies were abundant. At least three times as many were born ini proportion to the population as are born each year in these times of the New Deal. Yes! But baby burials were numerous too, and hardly three babies out of four lived out their first year of life. (Today only one in twenty is lost). A wasteful anS careless way of life, of course, but generally taken for granted by our ancestors. If many babies died there must be plenty more where those came from, and so there was much loss of mothers in child-bearing, as well as bitterness and sorrow in the wiping out of many infant lives. Planning Security. Today in the midst of our national recovery we have found some of nature's secrets and are putting our discoveries to work. It has not been by accident but by planning that we can now rejoice in a great security for child life. These plans include almost every family in the nation, many of the powerful forces of government and education and a network of volunteer effort that reaches every community. Once a year we pause for a day to marvel at the success of past endeavors, to look critically at the failures that continue and to determine how fairer, surer, more generous childhood can be promised for the years ahead. This May day is dedicated to the child of America to remind us that persons are more precious than property and that the growth of a personality is of greater value than the accumulation of material profits. There cannot be anything desperately or permanently amiss with a continent of families while every token of child health registers improvement. Guard Mother's Health. We have learned how necessary it is to guard the happiness, the physical vigor, the way of life of the mother waiting for the baby's birth. There is the almost universal custom of medical and nursing guidance for the healthy babe every month or so until it becomes a runabout child. Parents have learned the value of the summer round-up, or the semi-annual round-up, or the semi-annual health review of each child to insure uninterrupted growth and development. The school by teaching and example lays the foundation for knowledge and life-long use of the habits of ood health. Good government has guaranteed widely over the country clean water and clean milk; good housekeeping has brought :lean clothes and clean dishes; jood health habits' bring clean . Bodies and clean minds. Look to your health department for .eadership in child health; rely upon your physicians and nurses to tell you how to practice health in nursery, playground and school; create vol- · mteer forces to meet unusual needs and discover new ways of child protection. By such means shall our children inherit a health that is the best of wealth. RIGHT HABITS FOE LIFE John Dewey has told us that 'participation in household' :asks becomes an opportunity tor knowledge." Certainly right habits formed at home become right habits in later life..Lessons regarding the rights of others and subordinate personal desires and actviities to the feneral interest of the house- lold, train the child to meet he same situations in later fears outside the home.--Parents' Magazine,
