school child problem. There were
talks and lectures on child health,
recreation, home problems, singing,
and a number of other subjects,
which are of vital importance to the
child's welfare. Also there were talks
which were of special benefit to the
adults on community building, child
training, education through play, the
business man and the farmer, and a
number of other talks of interest were
made by people who know And have
studied the question from every point
of view for years.
Their helpful influence Jias been
responded to by the people, and the
good of such a convention as this will
be felt throughout the community.
One of the special features was the
teaching the school children songs
and plays, and the examination of the
children by experts for physical de-
fects. and it was found to be an
alarming fact that a great per cent of
the children are in need of attention,
along the line of ears, eyes, nose and
throat and teeth. Later the people of
this community will have a clinic un-
der the auspices of the University
and the physical needs of the chil-
dren will be looked after.
Haworth is having the Institute
