Kinney, M.L.A., in her address here on Sunday in connection with the social Service campaign convey the wrong i impression as to the infant 'mortality 1 Jn Lethbridge was the statement made to the Herald this morning by ;j local j physician, and in his opinion the correct figures would place Lethbridge well up with the. other cities. The fig- : ures used by the lady legislator were ' quite correct, the doctor admitted, so [ far as the vital statistics did not reveal thetrue situation. All deaths are , of course recorded, this being abso- , lutely necessary. Hut all births are . not registered. The law requires it but it is not compulsory with the re- ; suit, that many births are never recorded. Some or the doctors take no Iron- ! hie to report births. Then again, es- | pecially in ihe No. :> and No. fi dis- i trlcts there are often births where the ' doctors are never called into attendance. The result is that the percent- : age. of infant deaths to the total re-! corded by the registrar of vital statis-j tics is higher than the actual figures,! thus putting Lethbridge in an impro- | per light. Under the present plan of i registering vital statistics the truth ' about Lethbridge s inJant mortality | rate can never he arrived at Correctly. ; RUSSELMTES ARE ARRESTED, TORONTO Toronto, Feb. 18.-W.
