Noise Abatement Committee.—  Mayor Rossi has appointed a committee of physicians, engineers, lawyers, civic organization officials and other lay persons to study noise abatement in San Francisco. The department of health of San Francisco, working through its division of industrial hygiene, has made certain recommendations to the newly appointed committee, following a two weeks intensive survey with special noise detecting instruments.

Low Infant Mortality Rate.—  California recorded the lowest infant mortality rate on record in 1935, 49.5 per thousand live births. Of 3,973 infant deaths recorded, 2,546 were among white infants, giving a white infant mortality rate of 39.5. On the other hand, there were 1,184 deaths of Mexican infants recorded, giving a racial infant death rate of 100.7. Ten per cent of Mexican infants born in California last year died during the first year of life, while less than 4 per cent of white infants died during the first year of their existence, according to the state health department.
