MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE F I V K LOCAL LIBRARY HAS 300 BOOKS ON BABIES Volumes on Feeding and Child Study Most Are Centered on Health Problems of Children. The author of "Microbe Hunters." "Hunger Fighters" and other books of popular science has a new-book just from the press voicing a vigorous protest against allowing children t j starve in the midst of plenty and against the poverty thai nullifies the achievements oi science that might keep them free from disease. The book has very recently been added to the library and, while all of Dr. DeKruif's economic prescriptions may not be swallowed whole, the book will doubtless prove a stimulant to more effective efforts in behalf of babies. Certainly the matters of which Dr. DeKruif writes cannot be too persistently dinned into the ears of a careless public. Dr. DeKruif does not discuss socialized medicine but his vivid word pictures bring' before one a large group of underprivileged children suffering from preventible ills. Many on Feeding. The library has more than 300 books on various phases of the care of little children whose hygiene is so important. Many of them center about the problems of feeding. Some of the more valuable are "The Mother's Cook Book" Toy Barbara Bourjaily, which tells specifically how to prepare food for childreis; "Health Care of the Baby," by Louis Fischer," a handbook and feeding guide for physicians, mothers and nurses, and two excellent books by Luther Emmett Holt on care and nutrition of little children. The library has a copy of "Care and Feeding of Children" by Holt in the Greek language as well as in the English. "Healthy Babies are Happy Babies" by J. H. Kenyon has a significant title. It is a complete handbook for modern mothers. Is Scientific Study.

It contains a wealth of information which every mother should have available on such topics as care of the sick room, teething, emergencies, infections, contagious diseases. It is written in a pleasing, easily understandable style. Has Suggestions. "Two to Six," by R. H. Alschuler contains many suggestions for the parents of young children.

Arlitt is in reality psychology for parents. Mrs. Dorothea Frances Canfield Fisher has several good, books on the care and management of children.

This is the book that created so much discussion at Columbia about whether or not Peggy and Peter saying their prayers should be included. Clothes for Baby Must Be Comfortable Above all other things, the clothes for the baby should be comfortable. Cotton, or cotton and wool clothing, is usually suitable, for these materials are soft and will not irritute the baby's tender skin. The clothing should be: 1. Loose, so that the little body may have room to grow und develop. 2. Soft and smooth, so that the tender skin will not be scratched. 3. Clean and dry, so that the baby will be comfortable. 4. Fastened with tapes, rather than with pins or btittons. ..:'· 1 ' ;S T 6 R E: How OLD is YOUR Baby? ts yours the very newest baby in town?
