EFFECTS OF TOBACCO.
Data Gathered by Yale's Doctor
The effects of tobacco on mind s
body are of perennial interest to
interested in the health of otlie
Among recent adverse criticisms
the use of tobacco that of Seaver , <
rector of physical culture at Yale Ui
verity , is evidently based upon cai
ful observation. lie finds by a tal
lation of records of the measuremet
of all the students taken in the Yi
gymnasium during nine years that t
smokers average tifteen months old
than non-smokers , and that their si
in every respect , except weight , w
! inferior. The height of the non-smo
ers was 7 millimeters greater ; the
lung capacity SO cc. greater , and UK
weight was only 1.4 kilograms lej
though over a year younger. The o
served rate of growth at this a ;
would lead us to expect that the smo
ers would surpass the non-smokers I
2 millimeters in height and 100 cc.
To estimate the effect of tc-bac *
when they reach full maturity on bo ;
from 1(3 to 25 , a comparison was ma (
of the men of one class , which w
divided into three groups , the first n <
using tobacco , the second using it re
ularly , and the third using it irreg
larly. During undergraduate life , e
sentially 3.5 years , the first grov
grows in weight 10.4 per cent moi
than the second and G.6 per cent inoi
than the third ; in height the fir :
group grows 24 per cent more tha
the second and 11 per cent more tha
the third ; in girth of chest the fin
group grows 20.7 per cent more tha
the second and 22 per cent more tha
the third ; in capacity of lungs tli
first group gains 77 per cent more tha
the second and 49.5 per cent more tha
the third. Seaver refers to the obse
vations made by Dr. Hitchcock , (
Amherst College , in a similar seric
of measurements of young men , n
doubt suggesting to Seaver the poss
blc value of such studies.
It is impossible to determine the ei
feet of tobacco on mental processe ;
but as giving some indication Seave
mentions that only 5 per cent of th
highest scholarship men at Yale use
tobacco , and whenever it is desired t
secure the highest possible physics
and mental working ability , for exair
pie. in athletic sports , tobacco is on
of the first things forbidden. If th
whole period of physical growth is di
vided into periods of seven or eigh
years , HIP third period is devoted t
rounding out. At this time the inos
strenuous mental application is begin
and opportunities for recreations an
curtailed ; at this period also the to
bacco habit is usually begun , if at all
As a large part of the functional ac
tivity during this rounding-out perioi
pertains to growth , Seaver believe :
that it is logical to remove the moto :
depressant influences in order tha
there may be the greatest possible in
crease in size and improved activity
This position has been taken by tin
directors of governmental schools no'
nnly in this country , but in Europe
Many private schools have been fol

ten years , and Seaver suggests thai

In 1S70 a process for extracting oil

Cottonseed oil is used on the table ,
