More Babies Like These

These nine little tots are all sound, healthy stock. The generations behind them had unconsciously been practicing Eugenics through the process of natural selection. By luck, as it were, no strain was bred into the several families that would have caused these children to be unsound mentally, morally, or physically.

It is through Eugenics that we shall have more babies like these, and shall eliminate the possibility of children like those shown in the other illustrations to this volume.]
