As Health Protection
K. J. Eyer Emphasizes
Importance of Clean
K. J. Eyer, sanitarian for the Dis
trict Health Department, urges thor
ough cleanliness in the home as a
, health protection.
Mr. Eyer has this to say:
• Sanitation is away of life. It is
the quality of living that is express
ed in the clean home, the clean farm,
the clean business and industry, the
clean neighborhood, the clean com
munity. Being away of life it must
come from within the people: it is
nourished by knowledge and grows as
an obligation and an ideal in human
Today people expect to have a long
er span of life than our ancestors as
| a result of the wonderful develop
j ments in the medical field and our
, better understanding of health protec-
Ition. Good sanitation is one of thej
(chief responsibilities of public health.
This is true because of the relation of I
sanitation to preventive medicine.
While it may not be true that unclean
lliness, within itself always causes di
sease, we do know that filth is a!
breeding place for many germs. That
is why it is necessary, in the interest
of good faith, to promote environment
sanitation and personal cleanliness.
One will find the evasion of the
laws of sanitation and downright care
j lessness of individuals, block progress i
! toward bettering the appearance and |
| sanitation of a community and es- 1
pecially healthy living conditions of
the individual. Medical profession
notes that communities or areas in I
which epidemics and disease has been!
most prevalent are those which have
j low health records, rodents, flies, poor
j environment conditions; etc.
The health of each member of the
i family depends upon the health ana
j behavior of all members in the home.
1 In other words, everyone from the old
est members to the youngest must
learn and do his part in order that
the most benefit may be expected
from the family plan of healthy liv
Cleanliness around the home is de
sirable because it adds to attractive
ness, it gives to the home-dweller a
sense of self-respect, it acts as a stim
ulant to right living. It is not easy
for people to he as careful of their
conduet when they live in unclean
places as it is when alt surroundings

' | If dirt should bear no relation to
i' disease, there still would be good and
sufficient reason for cleanliness,
i Nothing is more unattractive than
) dirt, nothing else gives such a sense
of poverty and loss of self-respect.
I All dirt is not dangerous; yet all dirt
is to he avoided. Dirt may be classi
fied as any of three kinds:
1. Dirt which is in itself danger
, ous, like the waste from human bod
2. Dirt which may be dangerous,
like decaying animal or vegetable
matter in which flies breed; for flies
will go to exposed human wastes and
then carry disease germs to human
3. Dirt which is harmless in itself
hut may become dangerous like piles
of tin cans where rain water accumu
lates and mosquitoes breed, or piles
of rubbish which may harbor decay- '
1 ing matter or disease-laden filth.
Health and comfort to a large ex
tent are dependent upon a good sani
tary environment and high personal
hygiene standards. The provision of
an adequate and safe water supply,
the proper disposal of human waste, a
safe milk supply, insect and rodent
control, the proper disposal of gar
bage and trash, general cleanliness
and the observance of health habits,
are very essential. The chief object
of personal hygiene is to attain and
j maintain a high level of health so as
to use and enjoy the blessing of well
| being. Good health makes possible
the highest enjoyment of life and the
best service in the world. Health does
not consist simply in keeping out of
(the hospital. Good health consists in
keeping the body and mind at the bes<*
Today, when so much is heard of
the remarkable progress in the pre
vention of disease, we too frequently
forget that we have had and still do
(have a very effective and inexpensive
.method of preventing illness, namely,
(the use of soap and water. Since our
hands come in contact with so many
things that can be detrimental to our
I health, every member of the family
(should form the habit early of wash
ing their hands carefully and often.
If one will apply a good common
sense application of cleanliness around
the home much can be accomplished j
to make life more pleasant and safer.

'Your Ironing Jobs
Begin On The Line
It’s not on the ironing board that'
ironing begins. Your clothes line is
the starting point.
The way you hang your clothes on
the line can simplify your ironing i

Hang a]l garments on the line by
their strongest points. For example,
hang shirts and pajama tops with the
tail several inches over the line. Pin
at side seams and at center front to
hold shirt front closed and to dry it

hangers. Some jackets may be hung

side seams. Hang skirts and pants
by the waist band. Miss Whisnant
1 says you’ll find that pants dried on
■pants stretchers require little or no
i pressing. ,
Towels and pillowcases will blow
free from wrinkles and creases if they
'are hung about one-third over the
line. Hang pillowcases with hem
open end down.
There’s also a trick to
clothes from the line that will save
you more time from the ironing board.
Fold flat pieces (sheets, bedspreads,
table clothes, etc.) as they’re removed
from the line and place them flat on
the bottom of your laundry cart or
basket. This practice will keep at a
minimum wrinkles that must be iron
ed out later. Fold and place together
those pieces that won’t need ironing
like washcloths and towels. And then
place together in a basket the clothes
to he sprinkled.
