For Instance, many calculators fail to nole the. Instances of multiple births, such as twins and tnplctr,. Obviously (he number of children born is greater than I In; total number ol periods of childbirth. There are various ways .of ,c»l- culallus the death rules "of infants. In r.omc European coun- cent higher from all causes than arc death rates of mothers in the country. If the aue of the mother at the first childbirth is over 25 years ami if she has on the.average less tlinn three children, .slu will .t'Un a [ircater" danger -of rtenth '.Jii clpldbirth (han when the first and other clilldhlrtlw occurred at an earlier twiod in her life. Tlw tendency in modern times Is for women to wait longer for marriage and for the birth of a first child tlinn previously. Dr. Emerson Fays that in some of our modern slates within the past five years one-third of al! deallK of mothers in childbirth have.i'occur- among rather elderly women who died with the first cbl'id." The most important point made In his aunlysis is the demonstra- tion.that It is ' impossible to com pare the rates lor the United tiii-s the birlii Ls not reported "as (states with those of other .coun- a livi' birlii unless Ihc child lives tries because of the difference Ir until it i:; loptl/ed.

The Age of Selection is h is nere Our times are marked by one vast advantage over all past history—freedom of choice for the average person. A young man now has a hundred interesting- careers to consider. His grandfather had ten. Many paths are open to the scientist, writer, teacher, athlete, business man. Wlienwc travel, we often choose between rail and bus and car and plane. Every last thing we buy is one of many offered. ^Jhis is the Age of Selection. For. advertising keeps us informed.
