Medical journals are not often accessible to students and practitioners of education, and therefore the wealth of material in these journals regarding the health of school children is mainly lost to the educational world. The present bulletin is the result of a desire to put this material at the disposal of superintendents, principals, professors, students in normal schools and colleges, and even medical inspectors who may not have access to all the journals here represented. This bulletin contains the summaries of the best articles on the subject of children's health. The purpose has been to select, from the many articles studied, paragraphs of those articles only that add to the literature of school hygiene new data, new points of view, or noteworthy statements of current opinion. Some of the selections are not strictly within the limits of school hygiene, but are suggestive for the general health propaganda of the schools. The number of articles selected on the different subjects corresponds fairly to the proportion of varied and useful material available, some phases of school hygiene having been discussed little or not at all in the medical journals. No articles were chosen if they were known to have appeared also in educational journals, State health bulletins, or reports of two recent international congresses (Hygiene and Demography, Washington, 1912, and School Hygiene, Buffalo, 1913), as this material is widely accessible to students of education. Individual sections contain footnotes. An index is included. [Best copy available has been provided.]
