ix. lappuse - THIS volume is the result of studies in methods of Americanization prepared through funds furnished by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. It arose out of the fact that constant applications were being made to the Corporation for contributions to the work of numerous agencies engaged in various forms of social activity intended to extend among the people of the United States the knowledge of their government and their obligations to it. The trustees felt that a study which should set forth, not...
184. lappuse - In New York State 73.1 per cent of all births to foreign-born women were to Italian, Russian and AustroHungarian mothers.
82. lappuse - ... months old. The babies were grouped also according to the kind of house in which the family lived. The death rate for babies whose homes were in one-family houses was 86.1 per 1,000; in houses containing seven or more families 236.6 per 1,000. Similarly the rate showed a steady increase according to the number of persons per room. It was 123.3 per 1,000 where the family had more rooms than persons; and 245.9 where there were two or more persons per room.
vii. lappuse - Americans in fuller common understanding and appreciation to secure by means of self-government the highest welfare of all. Such Americanization should perpetuate no unchangeable political, domestic, and economic regime delivered once for all to the fathers, but a growing and broadening, national life, inclusive of the best wherever found. With all our rich heritages, Americanism will develop best through a mutual giving and taking of contributions from both newer and older Americans in the interest...
433. lappuse - ... a conviction that, as all races have contributed in the past to cultural progress in one way or another, so they will be capable of advancing the interests of mankind if we are only willing to give them a fair opportunity.
29. lappuse - ... foreign born is that made by the War Department in selecting drafted men for the army. The large numbers involved make the results reliable. To understand the statistics which are here cited it is necessary to know the definitions which the War Department gave to Groups A and D among the men examined.1 Group A was composed of men who are vigorous and without any physical defect which might interfere with the full performance of military duties. Group D contained those who were found to have conditions...
70. lappuse - I know that the idea prevalent among Americans is that the alien imports his slums with him to the detriment of his adopted country, that the squalor and the misery and the filth of the foreign quarters in the large cities of the United States are characteristic of the native life of the peoples who live in those quarters. But that is an error and a slander. The slums are emphatically not of our making. So far is the immigrant from being accustomed to such living conditions that the first thing that...
vii. lappuse - Americanization is the uniting of new with native-born Americans in fuller common understanding and appreciation to secure by means of self-government the highest welfare of all. Such Americanization should perpetuate no unchangeable political, domestic, and economic regime delivered once for all to the fathers, but a growing and broadening national life, inclusive of the best wherever found. With all our...
188. lappuse - More than 30 per cent of the births among the women of this race took place without a qualified attendant. More than one half of those delivered by midwives, less than one fifteenth of those delivered by physicians, and about one fifth of those delivered without a qualified attendant had babies who died in their first year of life. Fifteen of the nineteen Serbo-Croatian women whose babies died under one year of age kept lodgers. The native mother usually had a physician at childbirth; the foreign...
268. lappuse - L people, come from sturdy stock. Upon arrival in this country they have round, well-shaped heads, rosy cheeks, and strong bodies. With their kerchiefs over their heads they make fascinating pictures of health. They have had an abundance of milk and fresh air in their own countries. Here they live at first in crowded districts. Milk is counted as a drink, not something to eat; therefore, because the family income is small, it is left out of the diet almost entirely. If these children are fortunate...
