DEATH RATE HERE IS LOW
TIIK OMAHA SI'NDAV I'.KK: MAY J1.
Dr. Hastings V. Hart, for thirty
three yrars connected with children's
welfare work in Minnesota and Chi
cago and for the last nine years with
the Rockefeller Foundation, backed
by $10,000,000 for various philan
thropic purposes, was in Omaha Fri
day, visiting the Child Saving insti
tute. He found conditions there su
perior to those in all hut half a dozen
or o places in the country.
"In some institutions of the sort,"
he said, "the mortality is 40, 50 or
perhaps 00 per cent, while out of 100
babies taken to the Omaha institu
tion last year only two died besides
two others that were in a dying con
dition when they went there. There
are thirty-two children in the home.
One reason for the low mortality is
the fact that there are plenty of
nurses, about one for every four ba
bics. Another is the fact that there
is close connection with a hospital,
o that when a healthy baby it born
it is not starved or neglected for ten
days, as is the case especially in New
York, where children are taken to
such an institution as this entirely
too late to save the child.
"Everything at the Omaha institu
tion Is clean and sanitary. Especial
care is taken in regard to the food of
the children. The milk for the older
babies is pasteurized and that for the
younger ones is certified. Then, too,
, there is no lack of ventilation. There
is plenty of fresh air. summer and
winter. When I went in windows
were open at both ends of the room.
Old-fashioned people would think the
air would kill the child."
Dr. Hart talked also about chil-
, dren'a welfare work in general. He
came west to attend a national con
ference of charities in Indianapolis
and then went to St. Louis, where he
visited several institutions for chil
dren. He noted with satisfaction
hat other states are following the
lead of Massachusetts in coding the
care of the children. Formerly what
was done for the child was largely a
matter of chance. Some rich man or
woman would give a hospital or pro
vide other charity, but the plan pro
poned now is to codify the care of
children, just as crime and other de
partments are taken care of. The
same authorities are to look out for
the defective, crippled and dependent.
Some States Spend Money.
The doctor pratsed the work of the
home for crippled children in this
state and continued: "Missouri,
Iowa, Michigan, Ohio and other
states are taking the matter up. In
Michigan, indeed, the fraternal or.
ganir.ations agreed to spend $60,000
,for three years in tearing how to care
for children. The way the system
works in Massachusetts, in twenty.
six counties of New York and twelve
or fifteen counties of Pennsylvania,
for instance, is that when the agent
in any small town finds a difficult
case she ' reports immediately to
headquarters and soon the best ad
vice to be had is provided.
"We find out about the feeble
minded, the epileptic and the way the
various mothers pension laws are
working. One of the most efficient
leaders in this work, is C. C. Carslens
To Care for Own Child.
"We are trying to make the parents
take care of the child instead of mak
ing the infant a public burden on this
or that community. The way laws
operate now there is nothing in the
way of a woman coming to this city
and really making you give her
$2,000. Such tolerance is immoral.
She comes here from a country town
and goes to a lying-in-hospital. Later
she wants to go home. But she
leaves the child behind to be taken
care of by the city. And it costs at
leas'; $2,000 to raise a boy or girl to
the age of 14 years."

rection of Mrs. Greenman. Musical
numbers were given by Mrs. llilmer
and Mrs. Christiansen and a duet
by a mother and daughter, both
graduates of Train school, Mrs.
Clyde Sundblad and Miss Pearl
Sundblad. But the hit of the after
noon was a dramatized language
lesson given by the seventh grade
students of Miss Fritz. This is the
latest manner of teaching grammar
and includes music, acting, jokes
not as our fathers and mothers or
even the present generation learned
their grammar. The innovation
proved most popular to the audience.
Mrs. C. V. Warfield, wife of a
board member, who has shown great
interest in the Mothers' club, was
yesterday elected an honorary mem
ber of the club.
