SCHOOLS AID IN CONSUMPTION FIGHT,
Children Are Taught How to Preven
New York, Dec. As a result o
the great campaign against tuber
culosis now being carried on through
out the world, many of the public
schools in the United States are tak
ing a new departure in teaching to
the children the nature, causes dan
gers and prevention of consumption
A text-book entitled "Simple Les
sons on Tuberculosis or Consump
tion" has just been placed in the
seventh and eighth grades of the
District of Columbia. The Massa
chusetts educational authorities,
acting under a law of the Legisla
ture of 1908, are establishing courses
of instruction on tuberculosis in all
of the schools of the State. In ad
dition to these public movements
many of the private organizations
throughout the country have estah
lished, and are establishing, open-air
schools for consumptive children, it
being estimated that about two per
cent, of the pupils in the larger city
schools have tuberculosis.
The first public school for consum
ptive and preconsumptive children
to be established in the United States
was opened in Providence, R. I., last
January. The sessions were held
entirely in the open, and the bene
fits of the fresh-air treatment were
combined with the teaching and
training of the public schools.
This experiment led to other move
ment, both public and private. The
Brookline Anti-Tuberculosis Society
opened a school for tuberculosis chil
dren in July which is still successf ul-
y conducted. In Boston a school
for consumptives was opened under
private auspices in July, it being the
intention to keep it open for the I
summer months only, but so success
ul were the results of this work that
the city school authorities recently
decided to take over the work and
set aside & pdrfnanent building for
thi3 purpose. In Pittsburg a similar
school was opened in September, and
the marked benefits which the child
ren have already received from this
training have led to Its enlargement.
he Board of Education of New
York City has just granted a teacher
to the Bellevue Hospital Day Camp
for the purpose of Conducting a
school there, and a consumptive
teacher has been secured to teach
the consumptive children. This
school will be conducted on the deck
of an old ferry-boat. In all these
schools the children are kfept in the
open air all day long. Most of the
buildings used are open on three
sides and are so constructed as to
furnish unlimited supplies of fresh
air without draughts. Desks, black
boards and other paraphernalia are
provided in these schools just the
same as in the regular institutions.
The children study and recite in. the
open air, even during the coldest
weal her, and the precentage of colds
among them is far smaller than chil
dren in the ordinary public schools.
In most of these fresh-air schools

The prices are lowest,
the goods best and
soapstones are provided for keeping
the feet warm in cold weather.
In addition to the specially con
ducted schools several of the states
have required that the important
facts about tuberculosis be taught
in the lower grades of public institu
tions. Michigan was the first State
to adopt measures of this kind. By
an act of 1895, the public schools are
required to give instruction on the
nature of tuberculosis and other in
fectious diseases. In New Jersey
progressive steps are being taken by
teaching the children in the schools
a set of aphorisms on consumption.
In Massachusetts a section on the
nature, danger and prevention of
consumption, is being inserted in all
of the physiologies. In this District
of Columbia a special text-book has
been provided in which instruction
is given concerning sleeping in the
open air, the dangers of spitting, the
way to prevent consumption, and
other kindred topics. Dallas, Tex.,
is the latest city to adopt the meth
od of teaching children about con
sumption in the schools, and within
a few days a "Tuberculosis Primer"
will be in the hands of every pupil in
the public schools. In North Caroli
na a seperate section on tuberculosis,
placed in all the physiologies, Is
taught to all the children. In Balti
more steps are being taken to carry
on a systematic campaign of educa-,
tion among school children by means
of lectures and circulars. Many oth
er cities of the country are following
this plan. A petition has been sent
to the Governor of South Carolina
requesting that a text-book on tuber
culosis, similar to that used in Wash- j
mgton, be placed in the public
schools. Several of the other States
are also taking along similar lines.
This movement for the popular
education of school children on the
causes and dangers of consumpt.on
. is receiving a great impetus, and
i 10 u" "ua ''J' "
j within five years the majority of
children in the United States will be
taught concerning the evils and dan
gers of tuberculosis before they leave
the lower grades of public schools
