"Science and healthful living go hand in hand. Science has furnished us the knowledge to improve our health and is adding to this knowledge daily. Countless numbers of men and women have spent and are spending their entire lives in furthering this knowledge. That scientific knowledge alone has not cured all of our ills is easily established. There is a shortage of hospital beds, doctors and nurses are overworked, and still many people for one reason or another are suffering from a lack of medical treatment. Of course, there are many ills which do not respond to the treatments known today, but many more could be prevented by applying the knowledge we have. In a large measure, it is the responsibility of the school to bring this knowledge to growing boys and girls, as well as adults, and to help them to apply it in their daily lives. We cannot evade this responsibility nor can we cease to look for better ways and means of doing it. There is a challenge here for all school people--a challenge which must be met"--Introduction.
