The growing demand for reliable information on health Education to be used in the public school are being used in the public schools of Texas. It has stimulated the Director of the Bureau of Child Hygiene and his staff to work up this outline of a health program for the elementary grades of the public schools of Texas. The success of our entire educational system is fundamentally dependent upon health which can be secured primarily by adhering to the principles and facts in this Thesis. Health largely determines the factors of interest end endurance. Interest and endurance largely determine efficiency during youth. During maturity a more serious test of life largely determines happiness. Happiness largely determines disposition and attitude.

In teaching children to develop strong healthy bodies should be one of the chief aims of our school. Unwise habits of eating end breathing are often the cause of weakening the body and sowing seeds of the future ill health.

The daily habits as to cleanliness, exercise, rest and protection of the body are also very important factors in gaining and preserving health and strength. Habits in all these respects are formed early in life, and the longer in correcting one's habits the more difficult it is to change them.
