i PAGE TWO Liner Ready for- die Worst MEMPHIS, T«nn., Sept. 20 (UP) 1 —Aided by Major J. A. LePrince, veteran U. S. Public Health Service engineer who helped Gen. wil- Jism C. Qorgas conquer the yellow fever plague in Cuba, the Univer-. sily <)t Tennessee Medical College is conducting one of the most extensive studje^ ever made !n' an effort to conquer the disease that, has reduced tho Souih's Industrial .output, one-third. If the study Is successful, Memphis, center of the mid-South, name day may be known as the city where one of Dixie's biggest curses was defeated. Piwase Affect* &fXW,000 According to - scientists at the univeistty, malaria Infects more Iban 3,000,000. Southerners anni^ ally. Here,,, they (Mint, out, ib an Idea of the necessity and 'importance of the study: I The "Report on, the Economic Ccndltlon,s of tye South," made uy a group pi pronjtyent Southerners at the request of President Roosevelt, states that the' presence of malaria has reduced the- Industrial output one-third. 2, V It were possible to put a monetary tag on malaria, the- an, nual cost of deaths alone would c\ceed 539,goo,000 v the repoit says. And this fligure dees n<jt take into consideration, the cost of illness including days of work lost. Despite these, alaanlng figures, i datively Jlttle serious work on the_ fundamental study of inataUa has been done, University of Tennessee doctors point out. Mosb of the advances made In controlling jnalaila In the past few years have been due to the woik of, the U. S, Public Health Service, which has dusted swamps, oiled, lakes and destroyed mosquito- breeding places Big- >york Remains This work, the scientists point out, is impoitant, and its, ellects should, not. be minimized. But It is surface work-it Isn't reaching the core cf the problem. It's merely! holding m check something that ib ready to run rampant nt any moment. Now tho Umveislly of Tennessee holds out no hones of staining oiscoveries or developments Here's what it is doing- In a series of lectures by members of the st^ff, Memphis doctors who have been active In malarial work, and experts such as Majoi LePrince, everything that Is known of malaria Is being discussed. They aie resorking and u, u , ranging thl? known material conveniently Then they arc challenging il Some of it, is Uue. they explain, some false. T.hoy nre trying to separate the true from the false. Then with this complete, study before them they will try to" fill in, the gaps. They will Ivy to go on from the pcint where knowledge I of the disease stops—and there Perhaps, the it|«al control methods will be discovered Great Opportunity for Seruce "It is a monumental opportunity for tho University of Tennessee" said Dr R A. Diggs, of Hie stai,.' Malaria has got to be curbed. Wq aren't doing it v,ith what we uncw no?, Therefore, wo must do "The South 13 the uation's worsl malaria field because tho climate is adapted to the growth and development of the malarial para- "Ttie Mississippi Delta, and right across the river from Memphfc, around the swamps and lakes of Arkansas are two of malaria's t!e- gest strongholds in the South " Like all scientific v,ork, it' mav take year.s f;r any concrete results to appear But from something bunco to Mri'" C^Vcy";' "iiRveiins bunco to'Mrs. carl Seld ov, • " " I> score to.
