Kiwanis Fresh Air Farm Committee Report - 6. 1 case of pyelitis, 2 carbuncles and various minor ailments. Medically, the boys gave very little trouble and but for a few boils and bruised feet, due to an abundance of cinders around, nothing of consequence occurred. The total number of pounds gained by the girls was 110.15, giving an average gain of 3.9 pounds. The greatest individual gain for the girls was 8 3/4 pounds. The total gin of the boys was 136.2 pounds, with an average of 5.04 pounds, the greatest individual gain being 11 3/4 pounds. Among the group whose tonsils were removed, the average gain for girls was 3.43 pounds and for boys 4.62 pounds. The gain this year is considerably more than last year (1.75 pounds) and may be attributed to the fact that this year practically all of the children were underweight and the camp periods were twice as long. The Committee wishes to express its gratitude to Kings Daughters Hospital where the tonsils were removed, and to the nurses of the Health Department, whose cooperation and assistance greatly lightened the work of the examiners. The Medical Committee, Thomas E. Oast, Chairman.
