    THE National Baby Week Council, 117 Piccadilly, London, W.I, has issued its report for 1934. The propaganda subject for the year was “The Making of an A 1 Nation”, and special propaganda dealt with “The Diet of the Expectant Mother“and “Food and Feeding”. National Baby Week is to be held this year on July 1-7, and the special subjects suggested for consideration are “The Welfare of the Pre-School Child“and “Good Nutrition of Mothers and Children”. A poster competition is arranged for boys and girls of 'senior schools', and prizes are offered to parents for the best essays on one of two subjects: “What should be done were there an Outbreak of Diphtheria”, and “On the Effect of Overcrowding on the Welfare of Mothers and Little Children”. The Council will gladly advise and give help on propaganda work, the choice of subjects for lectures, etc., and on other matters relating to infant welfare.
