Dear Madame:—

Laving made a long and very interesting study of the
question of walls and their best sanitary as well as decorative treat»
ment, it has occurred to me that the information I ha;e gathered and
the data that I have collected might with advantage be placed in the
hands of the many Woman‘s Clubs in this and other countries and be
used to advantage.

Knowing how practical the work is in the clubs it seems to me
that a department of home sanitation might be of great value, not only
to the homes of the members but to the community as well, and knowing
how broad your sympathies and how keen your interests, I take the
liberty of asking you to cor sider the work for the coming year in your
club calendar.

In order to get some authoritative data, I sent out a series
of questions to the leading physicians in this country and asked them
several questions. Among the queries were these: “Is it true that the
walls of the home under certain conditions become a harbor for tuber—
culous germs and other infectious and contagious bacilli? Do germs lie
dormant on papered walls for years and later come to life and infect
families? Would you approve of tinted walls in preference to papered

From the many answers I quote from an eminent Chicago sanitar—
ian, who says,—“There is not much room for doubt but that papered walls
often harbor infection. In =.ny er perience as health officer in two
cities I have observed the recurrence of many cases of infectious dis»
eases that I could not otherwise account for. Cases where there was the
history of other cases of like disease in the same room, and a fresh
outbreak after disturbance incident to repapering. I ALWAYS ADVOCATE

WALLS TINTED with a substance containing an antiseptic material."'

Many other physicians say the same thing and the consensus of
opinion was strongly in favor of tinted walls. If you care for these
things in detail, I shall be very glad to send them on to you, I am in
business, (but not in the decorating business) and this is merely a
fad, if you will, to furnish study and information. If it so happens
that the information can be turned to genuine service, so much the
better, for I am of the opinion that there is grave need for more in-
telligent sanitation in the home.

Wishing you continued success, believe me, Madame,

Yours cordially,

W all Sanitation
A Profitable Subject for Study.


Chairman Legislative Committee, Michigan Federation Women’s Clubs,

The subject of Wall Sanitation is attracting much.
attention at the present time, claiming its word from
physicians and scientists; and naturally has appealed to
club women, since they are the home guardians. Forthe
subject is vital to the health of every home, for
whatever the surroundings; whether the rooms be
large or small; whether the house be cheap or expen-
sive; whether it is in the city or in the country; whether
it is in a village or metropolis, there is always the ques-
tion of the four walls and ceiling in every room, and so
the subject of Wall Sanitation is one that confronts with
vital interest every member.

It is not an occult or abtruse subject, for sanitation
means simply cleanliness; and Wall Sanitation is but a
discussion of the best ways to make walls clean and
keep them clean. '

Continuous Study.

The subject of Wall Sanitation should present con—
tinuous and continuing study. It should notbe taken up
in a desultory way or any attempt made to cover the
subject in a single meeting.

Suggested Line of J‘tudy in Wall Sanitation.

Causes of Unclean walls.

Dust, steam from kitchen and furnace, coal soot, scales from bodies
of occupants, exhalation from breathing.

The Kitchen wall.

Effects of steam from cooking, greasy steam from range, soot from
range, dust from floor, odors, color, light, creasoting of walls,

Living Room walls.

How frequent recoating, how to over come spots, the best color, the
permanent coating, rough or smooth surface.



Special work with regard to sleeping rooms, open windows, furnace
heat, temperature, color effects, solid wall stripes.

Bath Rooms, Closets and Pantries.
Special conditions, colors, cleanliness and permanency.
Schools and Churches.

Special inspection work with regard to preventive means, effects of
dust and dried sputem on walls, color, heat, re-coating, etc., etc.

Condition of walls.

The first thing to consider is the present condition
of the walls. Here we are usually confronted with a
number of very unsanitary conditions. In relation to
the walls as they stand at present the subjects to be
considered are the coating first, which is us-
ually wall paper; the material with which the
wall paper is applied; the length of time that the paper
is on the wall; the physical conditions of the room,
whether it be light or dark; whether the ceiling be a
high ceiling or a low ceiling, whether there are cracks
in the wall, whether the corners are closed. Very
frequently seams present themselves in the corners
caused by the shrinkage or settling of the house.

Having considered the conditions of the wall, the
conditions that exist as they now are, the next step is to
consider the situation that has produced these results.

The atmospherical conditions have been one factor;
but the most vital factor perhaps, has been the inhabit-
ants of the room.

Periodical Cleansing.

Walls are usually left undisturbed as long as
they look fairly clean. This usually means a period of
of from one to tWU or three years. No one would think
for a moment of leaving windows to be cleaned an-
nually, or bi-ennially or tri-ennially, yet we have been
leaving walls in just that condition. There is added to
the wall the same dirt that is added to the windows only
the glass being clear and transparent, the dirt is more

Disease from (Halls.

It is no doubt true that much of the disease which
suddenly injects itself into a household in seemingly
mysterious ways has come through the wall as a vehicle.
The concentrated breaths, the accumulation of dust
from the carpets, and dirt from the streets have each
added their quota to produce a condition that is far
from cleanly white at the same time the color ofthe wall
hangings may not be destroyed. Because the appear-


 ance of a room is artistic: because the colors are unfad-
ed; because the harmony is maintained, it does not fol-
low that a room is clean even when it has been wiped
down with the ordinary cloths. This is especially true
with regard to papered walls whose porosity makes a hid—
ing place for many germs and whose seams and laps
present a resting place for all kinds of bugs and dirt.

How to J‘ecure Clean walls.

Secure a wall that is sanitary as well as harmonious.
The best medical opinion says that this can be done
only by tinting the wall with a material made from an
antiseptic base. The most preferable material is always
that which is made into a solution by the addition of
clear cold- water. There is nothing more cleanly than
water, and when clear water is added to a substance
that is mineral in its origin and antiseptic in its effect,
an ideal trinity is formed.

All these subjects are worthy of study and in fact,
are most vital elements that enter into the home today.

Legislative work.

Wall Sanitation has now been considered by the
Lake Placid, (N. Y.) Conference where the nost ad-
vanced experts on the subject of Home Economics are
gathered, the leading Colleges of this country where

Home Economics is taught have added Wall Sanitation
to their list of topics.

The Womens Clubs of Toledo, Ohio, have
introduced an ordinance prohibiting wall paper in
tenements, etc. New York State, section 108 page 55,
now has a stringent law on the subject. Chicago. in sec-
tion 1229. makes it a part of their municipal code.
Massachusetts has a bill pending, No. 528. New Orleans,
La., prohibits wallpaper. Boston,Mass.,prohibits paper
with arsenic in its coloring matter.

Kansas City, Mo., has a new Tenement House Com-
mission to consider the subject. New York State offi-
cers and Missouri State officers as well as others have
endorsed the work of ‘ Wall Sanitation.”

Much effective work can be done by the legislative
department along these lines. There is no field which
presents greater opportunities for the amelioration of
social conditions than securing the passage of laws with
reference to the introduction of harmful elements into
the home and there is no more harmful element n the
home of the poor especially than wall paper or
unclean coatings as well as dirty coatings. It is not
only dangerous in its coloring material which is largely
composed of arsenic, much of which is free. but it is also
harmful because of its tendency to harbor disease germs.
bugs and much animal and other filth

Dear Miss Clay:

I have looked up the matter of Kentucky's pledge for
Oregon and find that your assessment was $84.90. #55020 of this has
been paid, as you will see by the little statement enclosed.
I will now add to this the $14. 50 for which I herewith enclose

When I left the office yesterday afternoon I fully
emected to return to say my Goodbyes to Miss 837161“! and you. however,
I found that it was best for us to go to the end of the line to take
the car and Mrs. Kelley Was late getting back to her room, so I did
not go book to the office. I went with Mrs. Kelley and Miss
Blackwell to Youngstown and saw them safely started. Mrs. Kelley
wanted me to say to you all that she hoped you did not think she
was lacking in courtesy because she did not come into the Headquarters

for a little final visit. Miss Phoebe Sutliff came to see her
about a Child Labor Committee which Miss Sutliff has recently
organized here and they spent the time in. talking about that. I
promised Mrs. Kelley thatI would say Goodbye to you all for her.

With love and all good wishes, I am,

You rs f ai thfully,
