Fletclier'back to Johnson where they are taking tlie training course A Charity to Lessen Charity This year of unemployment brings to the mind of most of ns the very heavy burden that all who have must carry for those who have not Statistics show that the physically and mentally sick are the ones who lay the heaviest burdens on the giving associations they are the first let out when a cut in working forces becomes necessary they have not provided for such an emergency and must lie cared for in consequence Statistics also show that a family of five persons must have a steady income of $2300 a year if they are to have adequate medical and nursing care when they are sick This as incomes run makes it possible for only 20 of the families of America to have adequate medical and nursing care when they are ill Surely it is not bard to conclude from these facts that one great way to lessen charity is to increase the health of our citizens It is particularly important for our children for they are in tlie formative stage when corrections' are accomplished easily Proper food protection from contagious diseases proper health habits and corrections of defects for these children would make a very different place in which to live in tlie coming generations Every cripple tuberculosis contact and under par child is a charity charge for our sons and daughters to carry Every thinking man and woman should look their community in the face and ask: we providing adequate health protection for our children in the form of health habit training health nursing vaccination or inoculation and other
