The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 79

Hygiene Class

Hygiene Class.

The opening lecture, July 29th, duly advertised—was very well attended. The subject was "Physical Fitness in Women," and the lecture was followed by much interest and interesting discussion. Two weeks later the first regular meeting was held and the class formed—subscription 2s. 6d.—there are fifteen members.

The attendance on this and succeeding weeks were: 14, 18, 29, 38, 41, 40.

The subjects dealt with were:—
I.Breathing—Chest Formation and Development.
II.Catarrhal Conditions—Adenoids—enlarged Tonsils.
III.Healthy Living—Food, Sleep, Clothing for Children.
IV.Food and Health—Teeth, etc.
V.Digestive Disorders—Constipation.
VI.The Change to Womanhood.

The meetings were increasingly interesting, and many expressed regret that they had not been more widely known. No examinations were held. Discussion after each lecture was animated, and it was with regret that the series closed.
