The Cemetery

From Nutrition and Health, The Borden Company: 1924; page 66.



Tombstones

Bad Teeth

Colds

Laziness

Here lies dirt
killed by soap and water

Illness died here
caused by careful diet

From a fit of jealousy
died
TEA and COFFEE
milk bottle took their places in the hearts of the children

Influenza
died because the children sneezed in their handkerchiefs

Here lies
``I USE NO TOOTHBRUSH''

This is ``The Cemetery,'' showing the tombstones of the various bad health habits which the children have buried

To make one, use a large green desk blotter, or any other heavy green paper, as a base. Distribute the tombstones among all those children who have given up at least one bad health habit since the class started. Each child then comes forward in turn and places his tombstone in the cemetery.
