From State Board of Health. -According
to the President's ad
dress at the White House Confer
ence on Child Health and Protec
tion, "the problem falls into three
groups: First, the protection and
stimulation of the normal child;
second, aid to the physically defec
tive and handicapped child; third,
the problem of the delinquent, child.
Statistics can well be used to give
emphasis to our problem. One of
your committees reports that out of
45,000,000 children in the United
States, 35,000,000 are reasonably nor
mal; 6,000,000 are improperly nour
ished ; 1.000,000 have defective
speech; 1,000,000 have weak or dam
aged hearts; 675,000 present beha
vior problems; 450,000 are mentally
retarded: 382,000 are tubercular;
342,000 have impaired hearing; 18,
000 are totally deaf; 50,000 are par
tially blind; 14,000 are wholly blind;
200,000 are delinquent, and 50,000 are
(Based on these figures, there are
in Oregon approximately 250,000
children reasonably normal; 46,000
improperly nourished; 7,600 have de
fective speech; 7,600 have weak or
damaged hearts; 5,000 present be
havior problems; 3,000 are mentally
retarded; 2,000 are tubercular; 2,000
have impaired hearing; 125 are to
tally deaf; 300 are partially blind;
100 are wholly blind; 1,500 are de
linquent, and 3,000 are dependent)
"And so on, to a total of at least
10 millions of deficients, more than
80 per cent of whom are not receiv
ing the necessary attention, though
our knowledge and experience show
that these deficiencies can be pre
vented and remedied to a high de
gree, The reports you have before
you are not only replete with infor
mation upon each of these groups,
they are also vivid with recommen
dation for remedy. And if we -do
not perform our duty to these chil
dren, we leave them dependent, or
we provide from them the major
recruiting ground for the army of
ne'er-do-wells and criminals. But
that we be not discouraged let us
bear in mind that there are 35,000,
000 reasonably normal, cheerful hu
man electrons radiating joy and mis
chief and hope and faith. The fun
damental purpose of this conference
is to set forth an understanding of
those safeguards which will assure
to them health in mind and body.
There are safeguards and services
to childhood which can be provided
by the community, the state, or the
Nation all of which are beyond the
reach of the individual parent. The
ill-nourished child is in our country
not the product of poverty; it is
largely the product of ill-instructed
children and ignorant parents.
"The passion of the American
fathers and mothers Is to lift chil
dren to higher opportunities than
they themselves enjoyed. It burns
like a flame in us as a people. In
deed, human progress marches only
when children excel their parents."

It's the Brain That Counts.

about ninety-eight cents. Seven
bars of soap, lime enough to white

kept clear you must keep your body
fit and well. That cannot be done
if one drinks liquor. A man who
has to drag around a habit that is a
danger and a menace to society
ought to go off to the woods and
live alone. We do not tolerate use
of morphine or cocaine or opium
and we should not tolerate intoxi
cating liquor because I tell you
these things are what break down
the command of the Individual over
his own life and his own destiny.
Through alcoholic stimulation a
man loses his co-ordination. That
is why liquor is no advantage to the
brain. You hear people tell how
they had their wits quickened tor
the first half hour by liquor but
they don't tell you how later their
body could not act in co-ordination
with their brain. You will hear on
every side men bewail the loss of
their drink, tf their personal rights,
but the rights of the few who can
not see ahead or have the future
of their nation at heart must be
regulated to safeguard that great
body of future citizens who are now
ready to step into the ranks. You
boys have something ah?ad of you
in the problem of preventing the re
turn of liquor. We have not lived
up to our laws, but I repeat, educa
tion is what we need to combat this
condition. When we have our
younger generation completely edu
cated we will not have types who
say: "Why should I not have my
ights as a citizen?" It is through
the boys of today that we hope to
see a sound and everlasting prohibi
tion worked out in this country. If
there ever was any great man who
accomplished anything through the
use of alcohol I would like to have
the fact pointed out. We in the
