A small one shall become a great nation. Question and Two Answsers: What is to be done for the babies of our crowded cities in homes where tradition, ignorance and poverty prevail? A careless community answers: "Oh, most of these children will die anyway, and those who struggle up to feeble or deficient manhood will be cared for in some institution." The thoughtful citizen answers: "Instruct the mothers! The death rate of infants has been reduced in Cleveland and the health of children in such homes has been established by teaching their mothers day after day how to feed their babies and how to give them good care. The children will contribute to the strength of the city instead of being a burden upon it."
