Hundreds of communities this
year celebrated May Day a« Child
Health Day. Health commissioners
county, city, and village officers,
lawmakers, schools and women’s
clubs joined in the ceremonies.
In some places, birth registration
was stressed, and a new tree was
planted near the home of every new
baby born on May Day. Commercial
firms contributed advertising for the
cause, and many department stores
distributed pamphlets for mothers.
Factors emphasized, as contribut
ing to Child Health were: The
drinking o f more milk, the use o
pasteurized or certified milk, a clean
water supply, proper sewage, an in
vestigation of the sanitary cortdi-
tions of the school house, a push
ing of the park and playground
movement, popular education as to
vaccination and i m m u n i zation
against diphtheria, smallpox and ty
phoid fever, and community health
stations where mothers may bring
their children for medical examina
tion and advice.
As for the children themselves,
they sang and danced on the green,
