The New OREGON STATESMAN. Salem, Oregon, Sunday Morning, March 10, 1929 ' ' " ' ' - , : ' :.- - - " Marion County Health Work Weil Into Fmk if ear RESULTS TEL Fl Maternal Death fl at e as Well as Infant Mor tality Cut With the work of the Marion county child health demonstra tion, narented by the Common wealth fund of New York, well Into its fifth and last year, a re- Bume of Its accomplishment ai least so far as statistics tell them has been prepared from the or fice of Dr. Estella Ford Warner. director since last fall. While the work of the demon et ration is probably known to most persons through Us program among the school children of the county, figures on the miani death rate and the maternal death rate rereal the effect the. health work has had In another channel. In the first four years of the demonstration's services infant deaths in the county hare been re duced by nine per 1000. In 1924, the Fund's first year, the lnfani death rate was 64.7 per 1000 of live births, or one in 18. The next year, deaths numbered one in 19. in 192, one In 21. and Iast yeai one in 27. Maternal Death Rate Down The maternal death rate was decreased in one year from .6 In 1927 to 2.2 in 1928. Findings among the maternal cases in which some educational work wa done show that in the county at lares the deaths hi 1927 were 7.6 pfr 1000, but in instances where the mother was under prenatal nursing supervision, with medical care and where a nurse and doc tor were in attendance at birth, with the nurse continuing in serv ice for a period of 10 days, not a single death resulted. Other figures on the point ot birth, show that the death rate i highest under one month, with 34.3 for the county at large. In cases where the mother was under prenatal supervision and had care for 10 days following delivery, the one-month infant death rate was but 20 per 1000 live births. Still births in the county at large num bered 4 5.7 for the one-year per iod, while among the mothers uc der doctor's and nurse's care, there were nq still births. The point of the foregoing fig ures. Dr. Warner points out while granting that educational service is not the only factor In the reduc tion of infant and mother mortal ity, is that the program to educate the eipectant mother to the value of fiood nursing, medical supervis ion and how to care for herself has had a remarkable influence on both infant and maternal death rates. Thyroid Treat meat Helps Findings on the physical exam inations which have been conduct ed among the school., children present some . interesting figures and some that give cause for re flection on the school activity, both from a curricular and extra curricular Btand point. The ex aminations show that in the two groups under which thyroid con dltions are classified, adolescent and diseased, there is a decrease in the adolescent type between the ages of nine and IS, while in the age group of from 13 and. over there is an increase of the dis eased type. In the adolescent type, the decrease is from 37.2 to 28.6 of the total examinations. while in the other type the in crease is from 10.7 to 14.7 of the total examination, Heart conditions in the two age groups, nine to 13 and 13 years and over, show that there are more In the older group, with an almost alarming Increase from 1.8 in the younger to 5.6 in the older. Underweight, too, is more marked defect in the high school group than in the elemen tary pupils. The general under weight of elementary children has shown an Improvement, with a de crease of 28.5 to 19.8. Startling as it may seem, the yural school children show a great er percentage of underweight than do those cf the city, witn 17.5 the figure for the former and 15.i for the city, group. Dr. Warner's theory of the hysical showings made in th school examinations, where even under a health nrnmm ) nnii 'wis UDhill. in cnhot.nltilW K-., ' w-wuv.tiw.il I W t UV. ui m mo ugures themselves. Sho believes the poor showinsr among the pupils can be attributed to the "unhealthy" hours and foods, to the undue stress on social life in and out of school, to the heavier studies at school and the still heavier extra-curricular nrottram all of which fail to allow time for good rest and wholesome foods. Eye Defects Cut Some results of the child health program, more encouraging than the thyroid and heart condition findings, show a decrease in the visional defect of from eight to nve in the age groups; In dis eased tonsils of from 35.9 to 33.6: and in dental' care from 42.2 to 38.6. Under the demonstration's edu cational program, an average of 6000 examinations of children of an ages have been given yearly: an average of 5.000 vaccinations ror smallpox have been given each year; toxin-antitoxin or diphtheria immunizations have been about ft.ooo annually; and dental exam inations have also averaged 5,000 i Disease Reduced ' . Results of the in the communicable diseases sta tistics, which show- that from 1925, when there were J95 cases of smallpox, this disease has" been reduced to 19 eau tn mi vn. WSS. when there were 18-deaths. . .immunization vi hmn in t v yer which program, is reflected A l - . . . - year .there were 23 cases, but there has been no death from this disease since June, 1927. Ty phoid cases, have been decreased one since 1925, when there were: but nine cases. A. rise was noti ceable In 1926 and 1927, how ever cases developed In hop yards here and their history showed ex posure; outside of Marlon county; .The. educational program with regard to milk la told thusly: In. 1925 a surrey made by the state dairy and food commissioner showed 70 per cent of the Salem milk, supply to be dirty, 30 per cent fairly clean and none clean. In October. 1928, six months after the employment of a dairy and food Inspector for Salem through the offices of the demonstration, the survey was repeated, with the report showing no dirty milk, 20 per cent fairly clean, and 80 per cent clean.
