M m SOBJECTS Great ititorest is being taken in ths �f9ton8 which are being oomliicled In the Y.M.C.A., Wesley hall nnd Wesley church in connection wltli Child Welfare. The session opsnoil yesterday with a great crowd ;n attendance and It is very praiseworthy that the citizens of Lyetlihrlrige are rnaUzlng tlielr responalbilitlos in this regard. Demonstrations. A most uniclue part of the program \^'as the Little Mothers' doinonstra-ttioii cla.'is hi Hliiili four girls den)on-Btnited the bathing of a baby with a kill thai many bii older person might have envied. The hall was crowded to �ee this and was one of the most vitally interesting pans of the evening, the Kirls doing the work absolutely unassisted. Perfect Babies. Prohahly the most interesting ol" all were the tiny bnndles of humanity that wore yesterday and this nfter-noou boing charted. It was remarked by several that they were the most beautiful lot of babies ever collected In one place and Lelhbridge may well be proud of them. 11 la a noticeable fact that there were a number of absolutely perfect babies. The charting was conducted upon the following plan: \ Age, weight at birth, how long breast-fed exclusively, age when weaned, why weaned, what foods, previous lllnessej (with age), whooping cough, measles, respiratory diseases, digestive diseases, other diseases, weight, height, dimensions of head, chest; abdomen, general nutrition, fat, bones, muscles' skin, hair. eyes. ears, nose, mouth, teeth, tonsils, adenoids, glands, heart, lungs, liver spleen. Ext. genitals. Afternoon Sesjion.- The afternoon session in Uie Y.M. C.A. opened at three o'clock with ilr. C. E. Cragg in the chair and the sin�- ng of the national anthem. .Vayor Hardio opened the session by n few remarks regarding the child's right to the utmost attention that can bo given it, and the need tor education in this line. This was followed by a very splendid solo by Mrs. Layton. ' after which Dr. Galbraith gave his address on "Prenatal Care of the Mother." Pre-Natal Care. Dr. Oslbralth outlined tho idea that child welfare must begiin witli the grand-parents, dividing the Innuonci^s that bear upon the mother into two great groups, the eugenic and the habits of life. Ho then gave some very practical advii-e to mothers re- ! gardlng worry, food, clothing, exercise, work and tiic sori.ii side of her life, emphasizing avoidance ot cx- � tremes in. nil things. B'ollowlng this' the Itev. Bishop ot Red Deer, secretary Child's Welfare and Social Service department of Alberta, spoke a few ( words regarding how tho future of; the homes, the city and .�t:ite wore � wrapped up in these children and how ; culpable it Is to sacrifice tho child on i the altar of Ignorance, lie statod that j the death rate in Alberta is fiT per! 1000 children, comparing it with that' of Now Zealand where under proper direction it was reduced to 4 per 1000, hoping that the time wcAild soon come when Instead of our animal asset we would boast of our boys and girls. Rev. Mr. .Dobson. Rev. Hugh Dobson then spoke upon "Conservation of our Human Resourc- i es." That child welfare is the su-' preine issue of a nation Mr. Dobson soon convinced his audience in a most clever address that was full of tacts. One lesson that has been learned In this war, .Mr. Dobson stated, is the supremacy of the human resources. Ha noted how the leading statesmen ot Great Britain, franco and the Un- m ^ eUSttlOH RUBBER mm "Cat'sPaw walkipu- you're taiki^g^ That'* the finest sport I know.

Sktr.tit Sllltt ". half the death occur under 5 years and 65 per cent, ot the deaths occur under 19 years when their econ-oiiiic and potential value is all before them. No Real Democracy. Mr. Dobson pointed out that we are not in a position to be a democracy when we waste 30.000 children annually, and the ability of a nation shows up In making itself strong to stand tyranny. He then gave some very interesting comparisons with regard to the expenditure ot governments on the care ot animals and their expenditures with regard to the care of the child, the bahince not being on the child's side. The speaker further emphasized "the-fact that the life of the child depends upon heridity, the education ot the parents for parenthood, proper regulation and clean food, and the prevention ot iniectious diseaseo, especially measles and whooping cough. The meeting closed with the singing ot the national anthem. Evening Lectures. The evening lectures were held In Wesley church so as to accommodate the large crowd that gathered. The meeting opened with Bey. Hodgins in the chair, and a hymn was then sung followed by the L,ord's prayer. Dr. Lynn gave his address "Care ot the Child During the First Year" in which he gave many interesting .'facts la connection with the care ot the child, its temperature, respirations, weight, development, teeth and measurements. He then went ftn to describe the proper foods, the use of artificial food, special directions for milk tor ailing babies, tvnd the difficulties In the care f the child during the first year. He also Explained very clearly the different diseases such as jaundice, crickets, convulsions, and their remedies. At the close of his interesting address solo was sung by Miss Minnie Hazel after which Rev. Hodgins spoke a few words emphasizing the fact that the child should be developed mentally, morally and physically, adding that we too often neglect the superstructure. � [ Industrialism and Family. The subject of Mr. Dobaon's address was "The Effect ot Industrialism and War Upon the Family." The speaker ot the evening pointed out very forcibly that the family is the fiindamental Institution, that church, school, business enterprises, and even tho nation are developed upon the family. The tiling we are Btruggling for today Is the full development of the child which only comes under freedom. Mr. Dobson went an to give a comparison of the old days of home life and the present days ot dndustriallsm, noting 'the tranBltloa of the centre ot industry from the home to the community. Where the mothers and daughters In the old days manufao tured the clothing, food, carpets, etc.. In the hom^, now they do it in factories, and as they have become wage-earners � their progress in the world has become marked until they are no longer dependent upon marriage as a means of livelihood. Two Gains. This passing from the homo to the communilty has created a condition of steady disintegration ot family life, Mr. Dobson went on to explain. It has created the impulse'tor transition from Illiteracy to compulsory education. It has also resulted In two gains, that education becomes national wide, and that solentitlc metliods have been developed In teaching, .though the speaker remarked at thlB� point that we are merely playing with education by having a N^ornial course ot three montha, when It should bo two or three peara. Two Losses. It has also resulted in two losseSi first that of vocational education. The child has been taken from the vocational training recetved In the home and put into schools where onV now they are putting on some training of this sort In cooking, sewing, art, and lastly but ot the highest importance, in some very few schools tho care of the child. It has also resulted in the loss of religious Instruotion, all the children getting al'ong this lino being hour a week in Sunday school Our aim should not bo merely'to pro mote cleverness but knowledge that must h$ used tor the good ot human Ity. EducatlonalistB are now saying that there should be'religious Instruction, Ho also nitide menttou ot the moving Pictures which might he of ine^itiraable value but are now a menace on account ot tho distorted views Uiey.glve, Noting then that Industry, education, play with the chlJdreri have mov-� ed into,Community lite.

The fathers have a strong duty In this direction jcspocially while no many fathers are away at the war. Duty, in this line is there In the name ects. Rev. Mr. Buchanan, father of W. A.
