Want Homea for Children.
Members of the State Board of Control
left today for Davenport for an inspec
tion of the Iowa Soldiers' Orphans' home.
The board is anxious to place the chil
dren now at the Davenport institution in
homea over the atate and la working sys
tematically to do so. The modern Idea
ia that a real home la much better for
the child than an institutional home, and
il la hoped to make the Davenport home
more of a receiving station, from which
the children can be placed out in the
course of a few months. There are now
Oil children in the home. Two agents
are employed by the board in finding
homes for the children, and a third agent
may possibly be added. Chairman Dixon
is anxious that vocational training be em
phasized in the educational courses at the
home, and more of this work will be given
in tha future.
