THE GEM Schools and Healtfy. DURING the month of September several hundred thousands of young Americans will leave their homes to attend some insti- tution of learning. How many parents realize just what that phrase, " leave home, " means? Few, we fear, really grasp the idea embodied — the fact that not only are the moral influences of the home life no longer to surround the child, but that the careful supervision of their physical welfare with which the parents have guarded their sons and daughters is to give place to another, and, too often, a different state of affairs. Even the most careful parents will neglect to make sure that the hygienic surroundings of their children in the school are all that they should be. If the curriculum of the school is satisfactory, the corps of teachers made up of well-known educators and the " social atmosphere " of the place of a sort that seems desirable for the young man or woman, it is the habit of parents to congratulate themselves upon hav- ing found " just the place " for " Jack " or " Alice. " If an additional query is made it probably has to do with the general healthfulness of the locality. How often is there any inquiry made into the sanitary and hygienic status of the school? If it is a boarding school, who asks any- thing about the kitchen except as to the abundance of the food? Who asks about the plumbing, the ventilation, the disposition of sewage? Who asks about the water supply? It seems almost beyond belief, in these days when health is con- cededly dependant upon proper sanitary and hygienic surroundings, that the head of a family could for a minute lose sight of these matters and send his dear ones to a place about which he knows nothing con- cerning the care taken to preserve the health of the residents, when reflection will assure him that the most sedulous care is necessary. The United States Health Bulletin has had occasion to examine into this subject quite extensively during the past few months and if some of the facts that have come to our notice during these investigations were generally known, we believe that prospective patrons would be shocked at the unsanitary and disease-breeding conditions existing at some of the highest priced and most fashionable schools. These investigations have been made without the instigation of the proprietors and generally without their knowledge, consequently they are absolutely unbiased and unprejudiced. Among the. schools that met with the general approval of the experts investigating these matters for us. and which we have no hesitancy in recommending to our readers is the Taylor University, Upland. Ind. We know nothing about the course of study at this school for it is of no interest to us. but if the same care is taken with mental welfare of pupil as is shown, and plainly shown, to be taken with the physical, we feel that it deserves the support of parents and encouragement of the public. Are the days of Dotheboys Hall so long past that parents can trust their chiidren ' s future to the care of strangers without the most search- ing investigations? — U. S. Health Bulletin.
