Excerpt from Talks on Health for Georgia Teachers: Issued From the State Department of Education, Atlanta, Ga;, March 1, 1911 Some of the topics are necessarily disagreeable. It would be much more pleasant to ask for exercises on the Good, the True, and the Beautiful or some other aesthetic subject, but one acquainted with the facts can honestly disguise to him self the real need for the practical instruction given in the following pages. Please do t neglect these distasteful lessons. The Augean task must t have appealed to the classic taste of the old Greek, but this did t deter him from his disagreeable duty. I confidently appeal to the civic pride and patriotism of every teacher to aid in this important work. By tactful management, these talks can be properly presented. It is a matter of common sense as well as civilization, that help and instruction be given on subjects so vitally concerning the health and happiness of all.
