High Death Rate Speeds Bureau’s Plans. Washington.—A national program for the prevention of maternal mor tality and morbidity throughout, the United States is outlined by the chil dren’s bureau of the United Stales De parfcnient of Labor in a report on' ma ternal mortality. Tliis report, the work of Dr. Rob ert Morse Woodbury, formerly di rector of statistical research for the children’s bureau, brings together and analyzes all available material, botli American and foreign, on deaths of mothers during childbirth, and is con sidered one of the most important pieces of recent research in the field of the bureau’s N work. Children’s bu reau officials feel that it indicates the necessary emphasis during the com ing decade in the effort to reduce deaths among both babies and moth ers. Mortality Rate High. Maternal mortality rates in the United States are today among the highest in the civilized world, and but a slight decrease in these rates has occurred since the beginning of the present century, Doctor Woodbury’s report states. The significance of these facts from a national *point of view is found not only in the loss which this means of the lives of wom en presumably at their prime, b u t also in the far-reaching effect of ma ternal mortality on the infant death rate. “A v#ry considerable proportion of all deaths of infants under one year of age,” Doctor Woodbury points out,' “occurs during the first month of life from causes which have their ev/fin in the care and condition of lathers during pregnancy and confinement. In the United States as a whole it may be estimated that approximately 100,006 deaths of infants under one month of age occur every year. Re duction in the mortality from these causes depends upon improvement and extension of facilities for prenatal, confinement and postnatal care. It may also be estimated that at least 100,000 stillbirths occur each year. The same measures which will safeguard the lives and health of mothers dur ing pregnancy and labor will also tend to reduce the stillbirth and neonatal mortality rates.” Doctor Woodbury estimates the to tal annual number of maternal deaths In the United States on the basis of 1921 birth-registration area statistics to be 18,281. However, a careful survey of sources of error in- certifi cates of death throughout the alfea leads him to the conclusion that the true number of maternal deaths Is probably as much as 12 per cent In excess of lliose reported,, making an estimated yearly death toll of more than 20,000 women. The maternal mortality rate in 1921 was 6.8 per 1,000 live births. The provisional 1924 rate was 6.6. Poverty Proves Obstacle.' As with infant mortality also, pov erty is found to be an important fao : tor in maternal death rates, these in creasing as the husband’s earnings fall, probably because of lack of prop er facilities and adequate for tlie poor mother. Color and national ity are also important factors in ma ternal mortality. In the birth-regis tration area for 1921 the negro ma ternal death rate was 67 per cent higher -Than the white rate. On the other hand, Hie rate for foreign-born white mothers was slightly lower than for native white mothers. Among the nationalities included in the foreign-born white group the rate was lowest for mothers'born in Rus sia, and next to lowest for mothers born in Italy. At the other extreme wpre the rates for mothers born in Ireland, Great Britain, Canada, Hun gary and Germany. The racial stocks represented in the nationalities for Which the rates were highest are, It is pofwted out, those which principally compose the native white population. 20,000 Persons Lost Yearly in New York New York —It Is almost impossible to be lost or missing for a consider able length of tUne In New York. Probably in no other city in the world are so many persons reported lost, strayed or stolen. Every day brings, on tlie average, 60 inquiries to the po lice for missing persons, a total of more than 20,000 a year. Os this num ber less thata half,of one per cent are classed as permanently unaccounted foK The missing persons bureau of the police department comprises 40 detec tives, men and women, especially trained for the work. Searches are organized much more completely than Is generally realized, and once the machinery Is set in motion the effort becomes comparatively simple. 4 Auto Perils Mount Washington.—The perils of motor ing are mounting. Official statistics are that 3,274 persons already have i been killed this year In- 66 cities, j Norfolk, Va., is the safest city and Camden, N. J., the most dangerous, -"iudeing by averages. ____ _ NOTED TRAMPS PLY ROADS IN SCOTLAND , Aged Woman Says She Never j Slept in Bed. - Kannoeh Moor. Scotland. —The most 1 picturesque tramps of the United ! Kingdom are Scotsmen who ply tho f broad high road which runs along i ! Loch Lomond and across the wild and I j desolate Ratirioch moor to Inverness, j Probably the best known is “Long { | Jock.” For half a century this total- ; ; ly blind mendicant Jias fiddled his way i i along the Perthshire roads, accompa | uied by two dogs. He shares all his | meals with the dogs and at night j wraps his six-foot tartan plaid about i them and himself and sleeps out un der a tree. “Old Johnsdn” is another. He's a j genial fellow in a Balmoral bonnet and tattered frock coat. He has a i wealth of humor and is known to be T a master of repartee. He has been on the road for 80 years. Highland tramps, or “tinkers,” as they are called around Rannoch moor, speak the Gaelic language. They move in clans and are known by the family names, which often go back for centuries. The oldest member of the clan is the chief and his word is law* They are strict Sabbatarians and will; not even blow Cheir bagpipes for alm3 on Sunday. One old woman who has been on thei tramp in the western highlands for 75 years boasts that she has never slept in a bed. She has brought up a family on the king’s highway and wears a wedding ring that has been j handed down from mother to daugh ter in her.clan for 300 years. They have a jplly life. Every five > or six miles along the road Is a ‘ “tramp’s hotel” —a barn or hut where they can rest for the night or find j shelter from the storms. The high land farmers and shepherds know: them by name and exchange greetings, whenever they meet. *_ Taxes and bank«failures never wor ry thefn and at the end there Is a j tramp cemetery in Stirlingshire called * “No Man’s Land.” CABLING THE HOCS i/iii . j Fred Patxel of bmaha is the cham- hog caller of Nebraska. His cry can be heard by the porkers for thrqe miles or more and he has challenged’ all comers to meet him in a test of lung power and seductiveness.
