Harrison, member of the Park hospital staff, and Mrs. Harrison. (Russell Photo) Croup Should Get Treatment at Once There are two kinds of croup a simple kind that is not dangerous, and another serious hind which is really diphtheria of the larynx, or voice box. Simple croup usually starts at night with a dry cough and trouble in breathing-. The breathing is noisy. When a baby has such an attack, the first thing to do is to make sure that he is not having the first symptoms of diphtheria. ~If he has simple croup, it will help to put him in a warm room ("about 80 degrees) in which towels that have been dipped in warm water, are hung-, or in which a. teakettle is kept boiling-. This keeps the air moist. The first symptoms of croup due to diphtheria are the same as those in simple croup, except that they come on more gradually and are more severe. The baby usually has fever, between 101 and 102 degrees. De- Jay in the treatment of this kind of croup is liable to prove serious, so in case of doubt always have a throat and nose culture made. Varied Diet Found Most Necessary " The first essential in planning meals for a child is to include a generous supply of those foods which furnish necessary elements for maintaining a healthy, rapidly growing body. It should be remembered too that the preschool child must be furnished with food for a relatively high energy ex- :hange. It is highly important ;hat the child leafn to eat a varied diet in order that his appetite may aid him in providing these essentials. George, age 5, was preparing :o eat a carrot that had just come from the grocer's. His mother protested that he must bring it to be washed. After much insistence he said: "But, mother, I'm not the type that washes carrots." Learning to Eat Is Big Job for Child Watch a 2 year old eat a bowl of soup and .you will observe how many trials he makes before finishing it. Soup on a menu usually increases young children's total time of eating about 10 minutes. Although it is advisable to teach children to eat soups, one must realize that these processes are tiring for them. Creamed soups thickened to the consistency of medium white sauce, cio not spill from the spoon and are easily handled by the young child. WANTED SOME REASON Wendy, age 3, had been tucked in for the night and was supposed to be asleep when her daddy surprised her standing at the head of the stairs. "What are you doing there?" he asked. With disarming honesty she replied, "Why I was just trying to think of something to call you for." K E E P T H E M H A P P Y Rosy c h e e k s , strong bodies, olerf- minds -no weaklings a m o n g H e r - mansons' boys and girls Pure pasteurized milk has made them strong. Contains all of the rich nourishment of raw milk. Combines that extra factor of safety supplied by pasteurization. Milk so treated has simply been heated for thirty minutes at 142 degrees--a temperature which kills all harmful bacteria. This process kills the germs of diphtheria, typhoid, tuberculosis, Malta fever and other dreaded diseases whose germs are often found in raw milk. No wonder physicians insist that most all milk be pasteurized. You should demand no less. If you do not already receive Hermanson's pasteurized milk at your home, phone 646 and we will gladly serve you. E R M A N S O N B R O T H E R S ' D A I R Y Rules to Follow for Keeping Baby From Getting Sick Here are some rules to follo\\ to keep the baby from catching a cold or other sickness: 3. Don't take the baby into a crowd if it is possible to avok it, for someone there may have a catching disease. 2. Don't let anyone kiss the baby on the mouth or on the hand. The baby puts his hands into his mouth in spite of al that you may do to keep him from it. In this way, he mighl carry germs to his mouth it someone kisses him on the hands. 3. Don't let anyone handle him unless it is necessary. The baby is not a plaything. The fewer people who come in close contact with the baby, the less liable he is to catch some disease. Protect him carefully. 4. The baby should be 'the only one to play with his toys and they should not be handled by any others except those who put them away. ANOTHER TRUANT? To young Frankie school is just another one of those things that life thrusts on small boys, like clean faces and ears. His mother, who is a teacher, was sick with influenza and had to stay in bed for a week. Frankie seemed not particularly concerned until Saturday came Then he said, "Mother, you must be awful sick to stay in bed on Saturday." Watching Baby Grow Important Mothers Should Allow Development in Natural Way. Every healthy baby is c:m- stantly squirming and kicking and waving his arms around and opening and shutting his hands, even when he is asleep. This is nature's method of strengthening his muscles so hat they will be useful to him. Be careful not to hinder these movements by such restrictions as too tight clothing o r blankets. Remember that all muscle leveloprnent comes from use. One of the most outstanding as well as most rapid forms of leveloprnent which occurs dur- ng babyhood is increased con- rol over the different muscles f the body. It is important for 'ou as a mother to know at fhat age to expect certain 'liases of muscle development o take place so that you can se this knowledge as a guide n planning the training of your aby. Also this knowledge hould help you to avoid forcing our baby to do things before is development will permit him o do them without injuring his ones or muscles. can be had of insuring more time with baby, time for his airing, his bath, his education, time for the thousand little attentions that baby needs, than by employing the many services of Lyons Cleaners. Remember that it's very easy to rob yourself and baby of one or two days in every seven. PHONE 600 CLEANERS LAUNDERERS - FURRIERS
