A party of Clevelanders whfc remem

through Woodstock remembered that it

Seeking Child Welfare.
From the New York Post
In the appointment of a municipal
child welfare commission, said to be
the first of its kind In this country, the
Hbclallsts in Milwaukee have made a
praiseworthy move toward the better
ment of civic life. The resolution adopt
ed by the council provides for a body
of five members who shall continue in
office for three years, for the purpose
of Investigating the problem of Infant
mortality and all conditions surround
ing child life in the city. For the ex
penses of this work the council appro
priated the sum of 15000; and a spe
cial provision authorizes : the commis
sion to raise other funds by private sub
scription. To cooperate with the com
mission's efforts the Milwaukee Visiting
Nurse association has offered the serv
ices of trained nurses, and other public-spirited
organizations and citizens
have promised their an. Mayor Seidel
is commended foe his choice of ap
pointees to tba new munloipal body.
One "of the members. Dr. John M. Bef-
fel. to whom credit for the creation of
the commission Is due, was Mayor

Mr. Dunloavy said it would be com
mendable. The sad-eyed man appeared pleased.
- "Give me two aisle seats for two wom
