TextBoth pictures are of the same baby, first when he was poorly nourished, and later following a few months of good feeding. This was one of the first babies that came to live in the practice house at Cornell. His name was Bobby. When Miss Monsch first saw him, she was advised not to take him because he was so undernourished that he probably would not live. After a few months in the practice house, cared for by the Home Economics students and fed under Miss Monsch's supervision, he became the baby you see in the lower picture. The smile, the alert look, and the strong back are all signs of good nutrition.
