Established, September 1910. Seven physicians are employed, one for each school center-eight schools, two of which are within halí a block of each other. Each physician visits his school at 9 a. m. on each of the five school days of the week, receiving $1 for each visit. The parochial school children are also sent to the examining physicians

Every child who has been absent one-hall day without prior knowledge and consent of teacher must obtain from physician of his school, a clean bill of health before he may resume school work. A free infirmary and two visiting nurses are supported by private subscription. Poor children are treated free and the nurses visit the homes.

"The effect of medical inspection has been to increase the average daily attendance in the schools. With practically the same total enrollment this year that there was last year, there have been 8,2774 days more attendance than for the corresponding months of the year The same number of teachers ... able to care for an average of 83 more pupils in daily attendance this year than we had last year at no additional expense for instruction. :.. We have found the medical inspection one of the most valuable adjuncts to our schools."

Every record card should provide accommodation for a number of examinations, at least four. ... It should provide for a record of the notification to parents .. together with the date of such notification and official information as to whether or not the defect has been corrected. The age, grade and social condition of the child should be noted and briefly commented upon ... in connection with the record of his physical defects. ... The principal defects ... are only ten in number and ... may well be given a definite mention upon the record card, since an inspector is less likely to overlook a defect in a child when he is compelled to make a definite record whether or not it exists. For this reason the eye, nose and throat, the ear, teeth and nutrition should be given permanent space on the card; and the skin, the skeleton, the glandular and nervous systems and the mentality should have

a definite mention.” CORNELL, Walter Stewart. Keeping of records. In his Health and medical inspection of school children ... 1912. p. 45–57.

vaccination in the public schools of St. Louis, 1912. In its Official report, 18: 564-68, February 13, 1912.

Regarding the vaccination of 577 children vaccinated by the vaccine physicians of the health department, and 218 vaccinated by physicians in private practice, in contrast to the excellent public vaccinations, it was found in several schools that the private operations by certain physicians were unitormly negative.

In the cases in private practice it was discovered that the proportion of takes for the year was "still dangerously low, leaving 63 unprotected persons per 100, instead of 22 per 100 among those vaccinated by the health department."

The inspections for the last two years exhibit the great advantage of public vaccination. The regular vaccination of public school children is the most important prophylactic work done in the city.
