In the older Greek education one-half of the school day was regularly spent by the Greek boys in exercises and games designed to make them strong and also to teach them the mental significance of sound health. During the middle ages this high ideal of soundness and sanity was lost, and even looked upon as spiritually dangerous. There is emerging to-day a new health consciousness. Medical inspection of school children has for its chief purpose the early discovery of physical defects or disease, so that such defects may be corrected in early life, or that contagion may be reduced to a minimum. The work began in this country less than 20 years ago, but the U.S. is now in the midst of the most rapid development of this part of the public educational service. Information is eagerly sought from all parts of the country. The manuscript hereby transmitted, entitled "Annotated Bibliography of Medical Inspection and Health Supervision of School Children in the United States for the years 1909-1912" was compiled in the Division of School Hygiene and Sanitation of this bureau. It is a digest of the chief literature on this subject published in America during the past four years, and will be very helpful, especially to school and health officers. Appended are: (1) Blanks and records; and (2) School activities in relation to children's eyes. An author and subject index is included. [Best copy available has been provided.]
