COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 101G TB Is Principal Health Problem • Vonderbilt Findings ' Hove No Bearing On Tennessee Death Rate *: WE, THE WOMEN Overseas Wives Will Rescue Uncle Sam - BY ALBERTA LOSS Vnlted Press SUM Correspondent NASHVILLE. Tenn., March 21. P)—Dr. R. It, Hutcheson, state 1th Commissioner, Wednesday »rned that recent findings of Vanderbilt University doctors on lying ag^i*—or calcifications—by no rffcans, push tuberculosis from its Ujp nSn^ r ss the state's number otic ^-"wghlem. , . raised the work of Dr. Amos jirtsiti'aHij-'his associates who last *k revealed -that many lune irs are hot symptoms of tubercu- lls, but result from the mild form _ fungus disease known as his- tdplasmosls. However, that does not mean that any person has been erroneously hospitalized for tuberculosis In Tennessee, Hutcheson said. "We doivt put them In the hospital until they have a lung cavity or positive tubercular sputum —both of which are indisputable evidence of the disease," he commented. : JThe nftr findings have no bearing whatever on the high death riite from tuberculosis in Tennessee, the official said, reminding that folks dont die from a "harmTes 1 ! fungus." The last official national comparison (1943) In the state health offices placed Tennessee third in the nation with a tubercular death rate of 65.7 persons per 100,000. Only Arizona and New Mexico, meccas for advanced tubercular cases, had a higher rate. .

Chances are he has forgotten the tliousand-and-one annoyances and small problems of family life. If he solves those or Just sits around and fumes about them, he won't have much time for worrying about culosis negative" on X-rays that showed no other sign of tuberculosis. But until the recent work at Vanderbilt the department had to ic satisfied with the negative diagnosis, "We arc Indebted to Drs. Chrls- le and J. C. Peterson for the help hey have given us in our lu- jerculosts program and we expect to continue working with, them In an e ffort to more clearly define ;hc cause of calcification In the argc group of cases now being tentatively diagnosed histoplasmosls. Calcification In these patients may be due to many other causes than either tuberculosis or hlstoplasma- sls," Hutcheson explained. The University of Tennessee also what Is wroiiB with llic Army.
