Don Smith and Dr. Jack Webb as the examining physicians.' Several of the Blytheville Schools already have held then- round-ups and work is being done so that the children will be ready for school entrance this fall. Others will be held during the summer. Every year, the Parent-Teachers Associations of the elementary schools in Blytheville, with the co-operation of the Mississippi County Health Unit and the doctors in the community, sponsor these clinics for the children who will enter school at the beginning of the next, fall term. These clinics, called summer round-ups, are a vital part of the PTA program. Youngsters, who attend are given complete. examinations by doctors who volunteer their time. When defects are found, recommendation for correction are . made, or the parents are advised ' to take the child to the family physician for treatment. Nurses attached to the Mississippi County Health tTnit assist at the round-ups and arrange conferences with parents on nutrition and innoculations when the results of the examinations indicate such are needed. The special forms .used at the Round-Ups are filled out in du- plicate; one copy is kept on file at the Health Unit, and one is given to the child's teacher when he enrolls at the beginning of the school year. These forms are kept up-to- date and are passed on from grade to grade with the pupil. All parents of children who are to enter Central School as beginners next year have- been urged to have their child present. If attendance is not possible, the forms are available at the Health Unit at any time. They may be filled out by a physician and returned to the Unit.
