Dr. ten der explained that under these con ditions, humidity and temperature could not be controlled accurately. The Lions Club's gifts, the latest scientific designs, are equipped with controls that can regulate heat and humidity to the finest degree, and with registers that show the doctor at a glance the physical conditions surrounding the infant in the box. In addition, there is an opening iq each to permit the admission of oxygen. At the same time, the glass win dows on top and front give a clear view of the baby to the attendant. He also indicated the importance of these scientific instruments that maintain life when he pointed out that Haywood county has a high rate of premature births and one of the biggest birth rates in West ern North Carolina.
