Of these 117 Were far advanced. Nothing could ^nore pointedly emphasize.the Importance of the case- finding campaigns upon which state and county tuberculosis workers and other health agencies have embarked. "The chances of cure are many times greater in the early stages; 85 per cent of the patients recover in incipient cases whereas only 15 per cent of advanced cases get well. "The -increased facilities of the Booneville and the McRae sanatoria, the growth of public health nursing and full-time health officers make the case-finding work of the Tuberculosis Associaiton most encouraging. "Patients who, for any reason whatever, cannot be admitted to the sanatorium, may 'be instructed how to care for themselves or be cared for in the home, as to give them a chance for recovery. And they are taught how to protect others Who come in contact with them. This is most important, for their tuberculosis causes tuberculosis; every case comes from another. Every time aclinic is held in a county, many people learn more about tuberculosis than they have ever known before and this knowledge becomes agreat help in the fight to prevent the disease.
