Ave, "The House With av Heart" Says 24,500 Babies Saved In Past Year WASHINGTON (JP) Uvea of 24,500 'babies in the United States were saved last year as a result of the work of various agencies for child and maternlal care, the children's bureau of the department of labor reports. The Infant mortality rate was the lowest in the history of the United States, the bureau states through its chief, Miss Grace Abbott. The estimate of the babies saved is based on the death rate prevailing in 1921 before the Sheppard Towner bill providing for state and federal care for mothers and infants was passed. According to the bureau's figures the 1928 baby has just twice the chance of living out his first year' that a baby in 1921 had. The children's bureau has co - operated with the states in the development of an educational - program of the health of mothers and babies. Last year was the sixth that the funds created by the maternity and infancy act have been available. Forty - five states and the territory of Hawaii participated in the campaign to raise healthy and happy babies and to save the lives of mothers. Thousands of pre - natel and child health conferences were held. Nurses on state staffs made more than 600, - 000 visits to homes of expectant mothers, helping them plan for better pre - natal care for themselves and scientific care for their babies. More than 150,000 expectant mothers were reached through instruction in classes and correspondence courses. As a result of all this, not only is the infant mortality rate, long stationary, has begun to show indications of a downward trend. No Danger of "Flu" Epidemic In State Appel HARRISBURG, (P).
