Rural dis tricts must have nursing services, the Children's Bureau .finds, if. infant mortality in remote regidns is to be reduced and human life conserved at this time when the nation's human resources are being wasted by war. Results of the Bureau's first detailed study of the care available for ba-bies-r-and mothers in, rural communi ties show that .one infant in every 25 of the section observed failed to survive, or that four per cent, of all children die before they reach the age of 12 months. The bureau's first survey was com pleted in a prosperous county of Southern Kansas, bordering on Okla homa. Similiar studies are in prog ress in Wisconsin .and North Caro lina. The population in the Knasas county is widely scattered, ,but no home is more than 20 miles from a doctor, and telephones and good roads minimize the disadvantages of great distances. In spke of these favorable circum stances, the report records that two thirds of the mothers had no medi cal care before their children were born, and more than one-third had no visit from a physician after the day of the- birth. Four-fifths of the wives of farmers had to work for large farm crews at the time when they specially needed .to conserve all their strength. . . . !
