Campbell, wlio has con- ducted' the medical Inspection of tho o! the schools.tor. the board during the past year, was read. Tho Herald, consider! It such a valuable report that It is publishing it In full in order that person in the city may an opportunity of reading ;It. The ripurt readi ai follows: Lethbrldgd. July 24, 1911. To the School Board, Lethbridge Pub- lic Schools: beg to hand you herewith, ray report re Medical In- spection o( schools. I examined, ex- cept, as -holed later, the pupils of Central, Centra! Kindergarten, Court- Westminster and Halley schools, the statistics being appended below. I did not enter into the High school, jl did not Intend to when I started, my reason, .being that as the school lite lot tho jtudents there was nearing its close, iifwas hardly worth while. My I .experience has led me to doubt the expediency of it, nnyway, for ren- s'onc: first, tho condition of the clill- dren -steadily improves as higher are encountered, showing inn- !er the wrvlval'of the fittest, or else more care on the part ot the parents, lionce the High school students have JOBS need' of. the examination.

Secondly, as 1 got into the upper grades 1 enconnter- j ed among the girls a sense of o'bjec- lion to the examination, .which would .naturally be more pronounced in the High school. It is a natural womanly feeling and, personally, I would be I very much inclined to respect it. Following are-the results of tho ex- aminations: The 2S rooms which 1 examined had a total roll, according to the" cards turned in, of 1201 pupils. Of these 1035 underwent the compete examination, in addition, to which 28 more were tested as to vision, 35 more as to hearing, and 49 more as to the strictly medical part of el- imination, making- totals of lesJ- I ed for vision, 1070 for hearing 11084 examined medically. Those 1 showing defects are as follows: Detective teeth, S23 or 76 per cent.; enlarged tonsils, 364 or; 33' per cent.; i defective vision, 229 or 21 per tent.; adenoids, 172 or 16 per cent.; on- cervical glands, M- or '-n cent.; defective hearing SI or
