Mrs, C, M. Franchere as chairman of the department has supervised the work. Gold stars have been awarded to 318 for conformance tc standard weight and measurement. In addition to offering an opportunity to mothers to keep an accurate check on the weight of their children, the clinic provides a complete physical examination once a year to each child brought to the clinic. Dr. Madelene Donnelly has been the physician in charge o£ the clinic and has been asaistec by Miss Ruth Fisher, city nurse ' Records of the health of each child brought to the clinic are kept in a permanent file. The clinic is the only department of the Woman's club which operates throughout the year. It is held from 1 to o'clock on the first Friday afternoon of each month. It is open to all who are interested in it. Mrs. Franchere is assisted by a committee which includes Mrs. Edward O. Babcock, vice chairman; Mrs. Walter Hyde, Mrs. F, C. Bslick, Mrs. W. F.

Brand New Baby Is Big Responsibility Whenever we look at a brand new baby, be he first or the seventh, we behold him with the same sense of wonder, the same hope, the same aspirations. We have a sense of awe at this new bit of life starting on its way and at the same time a tremendous sense of responsibility for its welfare. We take a silent oath to learn all we can about him and to do everything we can for him. Flavor Plays Big Part in His Food Flavor plays an important part in the child's food. In a food-preference study with nursery school children, cream of tomato soup ranked several points higher than cream of pea soup,, equally attractive in :olor and alike in ease of eating. Although in .general the flavor of children's food should be bland, meals which contain one accenting flavor such as toma- :oes, a fresh fragrant fruit or tantalizing bacon, are more popular with children. A strong flavored vegetable needs to be combined with · a )land one to give pleasing combinations of flavors. SPEAKING OF BABIES . . . EVERY ONE OF THEM... should drink plenty of milk every day to insure the perfect formation of the limbs arid a strong, robust body. No diet is complete without milk and no milk is so rich in vitamins and minerals as Holstein milk from our farms.

Herring has proclaim-, ed Friday, May 1, as child health day and the beginning of health appraisal week. The governor in his proclamation said the state department of health and child welfare plans to "improve, broaden and extend its activities in the interest of the health and welfare of mothers and children." "The realization of the benefits made possible by the public health provisions of the social security act depends largely upon the determination and purposeful recognition of the health needs of the several communities and the effective bridging of the gap between knowledge and practice," Governor Herring' said.

S. E. PHONE 3910 Furnishing, Decoration, Hints Told Main Lighting of Room Should Be Indirect. When your child outgrows the room you arranged for him as a baby, Sow can it be rearranged and redecorated to meet the needs and interests of a growing boy or girl? One of the first requirements in a child's room is that its furnishings and decorations shall be sturdy and able to stand hard wear without being injured. With this fact in mind, linoleum--guaranteed to take constant usage and yet keep in good condition with a minimum amount of care--is chosen for the floor covering. A game of hopscotch inlaid in the floor is an attractive and perfectly possible feature which will delight the heart of any child and establish the fact at once that this room is a place where a boy or girl can do things and have a lot of fun. If this is so, it is important that the room be easy to care for so that hard play will not injure it. Any mother will be glad to know that not only can a linoleum floor be washed, but so can the inlaid linoleum portions of the wall in the playroom and the painted walls above. Curtains, bedspread, the wallpaper in the bedroom and all the metal and wood furniture should be washable. Teach Child Habits Early. Most mothers realize the importance of beginning early to teach a child orderly habits and a desire to take care of his belongings. The difficulty is that in most homes there is little provision for storage room for toys a.nd all the one hundred and one things which children collect and prize. Too often they are pushed into a closet and the door shut upon them when not in use. The room should take into fact that play materials need to be easily accessible. There should be open shelves for books and other possessions and two ample cupboards, one on either side of a workbench for more storage. The latter may have doors of linoleum which can be used as blackboards to constitute one of the most striking' features in the room. Staples used for handles hold the erasers. The smaller child can stand when he wishes to create chalk fantasies on these blackboard doors, while the larger child can kneel or sit on the floor. Indirect Lighting Best. The main lighting in the room should be indirect so that glare, the enemy of good eyesight, is eliminated and a gentle, diffused light gives a pleasant quality and good illumination in general. In addition, lamps should be so placed as to give light whenever the child is working or playing. In the desire to have children's rooms gay and childlike, the tendency Is to overdo bright color. A soft two toned color scheme for the background is more pleasing over a period of time than would a more startling combination of color. Any of several harmonious combinations could be used. We suggest that you incorporate your child's favorite color. Although the background ot the room is one of quiet color, the room itself can be made gay and childlike by spots of color introduced'by toys, books, pictures, flowers in the gay china pots, the tea set and the juvenile magazine. Color Important in Child's Food That children do observe color in food was evidenced by the ·4 year old boy who said to his mother, "Your turnips are black and I don't like them. They're white at the nursery school." To teach an appreciation of the lovely, fresh color of foods is a worthy aim. A nice *harmony of color is not difficult to obtain when bright vegetables are served. In preparing a creamed white vegetable such as celery, an egg may be beaten into the sauce to add a bit of color and give «. members of the Woman's clubj
