* Baby Clinic Feb. 6«h
Ever> thing s >ems to be ready
for a baby clinic in Taloga quite
a number of people are interest-
ed. Our local doctors have readi-
ly agreed to make the proper ex-
aminations. About 6U score cards
were leu with Mrs. Paul from a
former examination and Dr.
Luyd nat> of lured the use of his
fir.e office rooms over the Bank.
l'he score cards uaed are issu-
ed by the American Medical
Ass'n and were formed after
thousands of children hud been
exam. ied. They are ijuite com-
plete. They have about thiri>
questions concerning naoits and
deportment a like nu.nber con-
cerning the mental d'-velppe-
ment, an! ten measurements and
a hundred questions in the gen
eral phoical examination, Sinpe
all 8coi are based on the aver-
age normal child our children
usually score higher than *e
think they will. The cards will'
score from one to thirty tix
This is a very important woik
and according to Dr. A K. Lew-
is state health commissioner is
usually neglected in tne rural
counties. His annual reDort shows
that infants are generally
healthier in cities than in th<
country, Vvork and studies of
this kind have reduce ! the in-
fant denth rate in Ok lahoma
city nearly 22 percent. He ala >
states that negroes and indians
are dying faster than they are
born, indians and ne>/.. ns proba-
bly give less thought to the
health and care of infants, than
their white neighbors, it the
above rep >rts are true.
Dr. Maddox will have charge
of the dental examination, Dr.
Skinner ind Dr. Loyd will have
charge of the examinations and
will direct arrangements and
plans for the clinic. Mrs. Paul
will have charge of the entries,
as the babies will be examiaed
in the order they are entered; if
present, it might be well to call
or write her before Feb 6th the
day of the examination.
If there are too many entries
another day will be s«t to com-
plete the examinations. Our doc-
tors are a help in meetings of
teis kind and few people have
their,children examined without
finding some little fact that they
are glad to know about. There
are no charges.

car was $2800 f. o. b., but the
next year seen a big reduction
and a continue drop followed un-

price reached $325. At this rime
the war caused the cost of man-

went back up to $525 on Mar. 3,
1920. This company was one of
the first to reduce prices since
the war and the car is i.ow sold
