GENERAL FEDERATION OF WOMEN'S CLUBS
PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT.

Mrs. Elmer Blair, Chairman
The Knickerbocker, Albany, N. Y.


"BABY WEEK"

We are all only too familiar with the horrors of the European
conflict. If that devastating travail through which our brothers
and sisters across the sea are passing has any lesson for us, it
surely is that we cannot afford not to conserve now, while we have
the chance, that greatest of all assets of a nation -- its babies.
To neglect this duty is to abandon hope of the future.

The Chairman of this Department firmly believes that every
Public Health worker who reads the "General Federation Magazine,"
and especially every one of its Members at Large and every Public
Health Chairman of every State Federation of Women's Clubs, is at
heart deeply interested in the success of the Baby Week Campaign.
The serious problem in the situation, as in all similar ones, is to
crystalize that interest into action. Without action no amount of
interest is going to save a single baby. But if everyone who is
interested would DO SOMETHING, no matter how little, the result in
the aggregate would be the savings of thousands of infant lives.

The reports which are coming from the Children's Bureau on
the development of the campaign are encouraging. They indicate a
general realization of the supreme importance of the movement. One
of their most gratifying features is that a large number of Public
Health Chairman of State Federations and of individual clubs have
written to the Bureau for instructions. Your Chairman earnestly
wishes to know how many of these inquirers have formulated definite
plans. When this issue of the "Magazine" reaches its readers the
preliminary work of organization for the campaign should be well
under way. But if for any reason the matter has been deferred, it
is not too late to begin now.

Often the chief trouble is to know how to begin. For the ben-
efit of those who feel this handicap the following suggestions are
made:

First of all, if you have not already communicated with the
Children's Bureau ("Attention of Mrs. Goodwin"), U. S. Department
of Labor, Washington, D. C,, do so at once, asking for plans and
advice applicable to your own situation.

Next, call together immediately the representatives of your
local organizations, of both men and women, and work out a program
suitable for your locality and needs.

NOW, ONE LITTLE THING MCRFE, DO THIS IF NOTHING ELSE, PLEASE.
SEND ME (Mrs. Elmer Blair, Chairman, The Knickerbocker, Albany,
N. Y.) A POSTAL CARD TELLING ME (1) IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS
WORK, and (2) IF YOU HAVE STARTED IT IN ANY WAY.


i ~ ` I "~" I C I I










-2-


Remember, this appeal is not made merely to official repre-
sentatives of federations, clubs or departments, but to every work-
er for or advocate of Public Health, man or woman, who desires
"P-by 7eek" to be the means of saving untold thousands of babies
in this country.

The "Public Health" space (two pages) in the March number of
the ".i'.hsine" (issued the first of that month) will be devoted to
reports which are received on these postal cards. It is confidently
expected that these will form an honor-roll that will take up every
bit of that -rice. The reports will be given by states, and surely
each State Chairman of Public Health is anxious to have the clubs
in her jurisdiction make a good showing -- not merely from local
pride, but from the stirring of a sincere Public Health conscience
and for the encouragement that her good work will give to others.

From now until March fourth the success of the campaign lies,
more than anywhere else, in the hands of the Public Health Chair-
men of the State Federations. If each will do what she can the
magnitude of its success is incalculable. CANNOT EACH ONE OF YOU
WRITE TO EACH OF YOUR CLUB PTRESILEITTS A LETTER WHICH WILL AROUSE
HER TO ACTION, AND ASK HER URGENTLY TO WRITE A POSTAL CARD AS
ABOVE INDICATED?

January, 1916.

in anriver to your lItter of recent Lda!.e in
regard to our schol:arhipT fund, I am glad to furnish'i yci the following
informant ion:
whilee several of cur clubs in t "t. L:t ive
scholarship furds, =nd t!.ere are proba' ly six in .;ll gi'n, :- '.der-
ation only gives one, and this in the kindergarten :onclat'.',r, le
funds being raised by voluntary contributions of ,5.r. fr-om only ap rart
of the clubs t at feel able to contribute in t!is way. It is a free
scholarship, and we give tiis fro :ar cv.-n state fund, t-iose tiat are
given by the clubs sepa rtel3 bilii, iifc' endent of the Federation.
Our scholarship is given in Lhe -* oain'-s college at Tallanascee. The
student awarded this scholarship m:bt be a high school graduate, and
have no other means to receive an education, as this is a teacher's course,
we rather require them to graduate, and we ask them to teach in the
state as msny years as they :ave enjoyed the scholarship. The student
must -ave good recommendation of the federated club.
We have tried very hard to raise a domestic
science scholarship also, but so far have not succeeded, and it is al-
together probable tnat next year w& will i'lternste, and give the student
tre home economics course, Cvich takes three years instead of two. The
Federation scholarship costs $111.00, but T .::ink most of the clubs give
$125.00 for th srB. Ths scholarships in th3 state are free, gift schol-
ar~i-(ps. I would like very much to jave a loan fund, but so far we have
not raised sanm. we are raising a Sta to endowment for our Federation,
and in tit:e it may be possible for us to give other scholarships.
With: New Year's greetings and best wishes for
the success of your worv,
Sincerely,


President.

I am 2writLin PTrs. Moore and se rd ing her a copy of this letter also, and
also enclosing you cony of letter I am writing to Mrs. core. This will
give you the inside information. DYe want botL you and Mrs. 'Loore Pt
these meetings. I will have 7rs. aoore, E'is- Thorpe, and rcr!.':.hy Mrs.
Stanley as my guests, and when you W t trough wit.h Vurt vij.it '"!' ;'Mrs.
Craig, you can come over w.thi us il o .
You and Mrs. M'oore can nake these visits with me, and
go fror Daytona to Gninesvil-e, -her-e T T LO 2ley wo'.l d be glad to live
you for th-e 1lst, if Uiey decide l.o l v.r :-.r meeting then. In the imoan
time, will notify ouu If 'l.re Is :rv c aR..i in t' is da te, and if you
wish, I might give you a little time now in your section, but I would
really prefer not to go down on the east coast just now, as have some
engagements up Live Oak way. I am Lugive the first part of 'arch to
Section 1, and t-e a2 st of March to Section 3, ard you see February is
full, and I Co to Tallahassee the 13th of January, Quincy htie 14th, and
M.nticello the .5th, so I am goin- to be soume busy lady all spring. I
would rather fix some later date and come to tie east coast when possible,
and I would advise that you arrange meetings with clubs t:atwe did ndt
visit last year. I may go to Cuba wit; T'r. Jennings later in the spring.
If I do, I would like to wcrk tre clubs ss I come back with you, and I
could give you this time, whicT 1 v.'ould not liu-i of probably until the
last minute, but you are such an "on the minute" lady yourself, that you
can arrange on very short notice; nd your women are so enthusiastic that
they will rsepond at once, and while I will give you as much notice .s I
can, I do not knono ow just v:hen it will be. I would want to hold another
park committee meeting then whide I am in Niaiu, and I might go to the park
again.
Our preliminary work is beginning to Lase shape, and
we 1ad a very splendid meeting on December 226 at trs. Bryan's home. There
were ten club presidents present, and t-ey took 680 of the dime strips,







#2--Mrs. F. L.


or on an average of one str-i for each member. These little holders

I appreciate your letter t very ae- uc. indeed, and
S1le I .ave not had a letter from "re. "ood yet about the park, i will
be in position to give T-er information wm en do asks for naae.
I would appreciate very much a notice for 7"lorda
in ts Ladies' Mere J.urnal. re are certainly placing natural scenery
on cur program of Federation work, and last year our forestry cAidlraun
advocated tat they plant a tree for the baby instead of giving it a
silver spoon, and we asked tLhe county commissleners to provide in their
budget for tree planting and preservation of natural sceeray along the
h'igt.hways. "e will urpe tree planting on tle le xi ig:way as well as
the locai roads.
I hawa not succeeded in securing a forestry o:lair-
man t;is year as yet, but we 'raw made a special co aittee for the park
whlid, will be a standing eaomittee for our park wor.. This park is
really a tropical jungle, being below the frost line, and has a great
wealth of rare tropical growth. l r. 'rmall, of ite botanicall gardenss of
TOew York, is just new making 'hs second visit Vtis year to our park.
:;e is ery ent-usiastic, as many ct tie oat er colentists are.
T am enclosing you a letter w oih J oa going to
ser! to tiVe clubs very Goon, .iic will give ycu an idea of t'e way we
are Soing to raise our first funds fbr immediate use for ulaintefnance for
our park. '-e already oave several scientists-of note m.o are going to
help us formulate lane to work to in laying out t e park, and for our
future planting. It will be same time of course, before t ese plans are
perfected, so tiat we can adopt t-ea, but our idea is to ave theu so
planned t at t-y cannot be a anged by eac adiinistrati n and new park
comAittee, and iave it look liak very mauci like a crazy quilt instead of
a well planned garden. I L'ink we will plan our park according to t'e
3uitenzore CardeLIs of Java. Dr. Small says tiat t.oe rowtI in our park
is very similar ItaeB to t-.at of thle ast Indies. It may be t at we can





-, a


"2-- 'rs.. *


get osae vry valuable suggestions from ni also.
'ur greatest need now Is funds to provide an Luazediate care
taleVr, and a lodge or residence. T-.e '.ormt's Club of Miaai, rnio are to
entzcr'taln t e 'ederaticn at it next meeting in Dovenber, will provide
a special Lrain to take tbe women of t.e convention to -omestead, and
froL. omestead tmey will be transported in autnobiles by four or five
local clubs, tie remaining twelve or fifteen miles to the park. In
t e mean time, the county cemziissioners have let a contract for hard
surfa .ing a road from loraestond, 24 feet wfa read bed, 16 feet ,ard
surface, to t'-he "oraue County line, or about four miles, w ich will come
trout' our park.
"rs. ". ?lagler, you will rem-lmber, gave us a section and
a ,half, GO acres, an equal acreage to-the park. Tils land was located
four miles from t'he park. ""e 'ave recently exclhnged lanrd with tle
r'tte, and secured a section immediately adjoining and contiguous to tle
park. o:Io new read turns just outside te park, and outs diagonally
t.raju; i t.c new sEection we 'ave just secured, r ic' will give us 2-1 te
2-., iules of hard surfaced road trougi our property, w 2e-i wo id cost
us about "18,000.3O if Ge iad to build same. "~ia paik is a sort of in-
laad island, partly surrounded by a rock bottom prairie, wA.ich is covered
wit', water te gr.ater part of tie year. in tVe park lands, we 'have
about 160 acres, 1.ich if properly drained, will make a beautiful garden
spot. T.ie eindorment land we are told, we can rent for tomato growing,
fcr from "10.00 to :15.00 per acre, and of course, now t at it can all
be kept by one care taker, it will simplify our problem largely, and save
us a great d.-al of expense in handling same.
I ope at the time of aor convention in rovember, it will
be possible for some of tV General Federation board to visit us, and
realize what a wonderful t.dng we are undertaking in tie line of censer-

I will let you knra .i-w we succeed In our collection for

My dear Mrs. Knight:-

I was very glad indeed to i-ave your letter of
December 11th, and am sending same to our art chairman. I feel that she
will be greatly interested, as I realize t'-at it is the Effort of your
Federation to place art before the country generally.

Te are making a great effort in Florida to have
art regarded in a better light, and feel that we have made quite a
bit of headway, as we had a speaker at our Federation on art this time,
and a large display of basketry and rug weaving, etc., by the club women
generally.

I congratulate you on your splendid exposition,
and regret very much that it was impossible for me to attend.

Sith New Year's greetings from the Florida Feder-

ICy dear ra s. -'err-i 1:-

.- C!9rCd rna an Fwer' d air 1 letter- s:a r',er, out
went to J."J mi for a -eek, aEo nrl ji:t no: go. Lt.in i" t- vs ~ ir --t

i tink. it is a .: d idea to 0be "ia.:.y to a5sk
for ,ove r.libert f.unds. .1 o u..i t. up s. tc:' : r e oluti ons, prs
t.er i oy your organization, a sk tIe board fr- fund. for canning cuib work,
ain also ask t' o govereni, at fIor' 'unds to hi .p vi it: tao -cr!-. T'is
resoliutlon shoiOLLd embody a re-uest t. ?.t all clubs in the co.7nt.y cooper-
ato wiithi your cluo, and p~ss sil.lar re,_olutions. i would tWen .ave
copies sufficient iade to over every club in tie county, of t'is resolu-
tion, and send same to them, ;.skir tlem to endorse resolution and re-
turn .3aTe LO yu. VWhen you have all these resolutions eindorsed and in
hand, 1 would file t'a m L wit~ Li school bCtrd, asking, them to make rro-
vision for a certain amount for this work, then it. will be easy enough to
got .TIss Agv.s Ellen ar-ris, "tuate ffrn.t, "'oman.'s Colle6ge, Tallahassee,
to make provision aor your allowance from tne government. :he would be
deliCgted to .'o so, I feelsure. You would probably not R t more than
.00 from her for your work, but you should at least have the work not
less t an eight or nine months, but you should nave li100.00 per month.
If you could get your county to give you ,6.00CO, tnis would carry tlie
work, if you could get Miss larris to give SZ30J.UO.
You would have to be able to thoroughly recommend
your agent before you cuild appoint her, aFd yuu should have Miss Harris'
sanction, then you could a1ve her duly appointed by the school board,
and get the superintendent to place her directly under his supervision,
with Miss Harris also as she is in charge of all agents. You should
get a settled woman, I should say, as the young girls do not always meet
t.e requirements. The whole idea is to get hold of the rural home, and
improve it as much as possible.
In taking this resolution before the school board,
you had better take a representative f om each club to be present, and ask


- I I







p 2-- Trs. H. ",


an audience with the board. They should pass a resolution granting
the amount for th.e work, to -mke it official, and the superintendent
should write letters to all the school teachers in the county, asking
them to cooperate wit- tre agent, and giving his official sanction to
t'e work. You might get tie county commissioners then to Live you a
Ford machine fcr your agent, as tiey have done tlis in some counties.
If .,ou proceed with a great de.Al of policy, I feel sure that
you will succeed. Let we know how you get along with the work.
Tith best of :;ocd ie ad e and Neb" Year greetings,
Sincerely,
