J MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 27 1931 DANGER IS GREAT IN TUBERCULOSIS FROM INFECTION High Communicability Needs to Be Realized, Says St. Louis Man. _ IES MOINES, Feb. 27. /P--Fhy- Eicians as a group have not yet realized the danger from infection and the very high commumcabillty of tuberculosis, said 3. W. Becker ot St. Louis, executive secretary of the Missouri Tuberculosis association, in a prepared address before the Iowa Tuberculosis association convention here today. Recent medical research has demonstrated, he said, that there is a clear transition from primary in- · fections and the childhood type o£ tuberculosis to the distinctly adult type, that this transition occurs in children and youth from constant contact and exposure with the adult type, and that tuberculosis is highly communicable. "Each open case is a storm center and focus of infection,' and if these storm centers are controlled the vicious circle of adult type of infection can be broken up and the spread of the disease stopped," he asserted. i Re-Education Is Needed H6 concluded that there must be '8. re-education of the practicing physician who did 'not receive the newer information about tuberculosis in his training and who has not taken seriously the danger ot infection by contact from the adult type. Dr. W. E. Wolcott of Des Moines pointed out the difficulty of educating: and caring for handicapped children in the rural districts because of the scattering of the population. He advocated making the care of these children the concern of the state as a whole. Surveys showing that 50 per cent fcf patients of tuberculosis sanatoriums were not alive five years after their discharge caused the establishment of a boarding club by the Hennepin County Tuberculosis association, 'said Kathryne Radebaugh of Minneapolis in an address. Employment Was Requirement "Our ex-patients had what seemed to be an adequate medical nursing and social follow-up," Miss Rade- baiign explained, "so it seemed that the one great lack was suitable em- ploymeut." The tuberculosis association, co- bperating with the Minneapolis public schools, now provides vocational training for patients and holds them in the boarding .club until they are able to provide ade- {mate quarters for themselves. ' The wear and tear of the present Hay^method.of living 1 , both in busi- iiesSTCndrin th'e home, is one of the causes of heart disease, said Dr. I. C. Riggin of New York, executive Secretary of the American Health association, whose prepared address followed that of Miss Radebaugh. He pointed out that physical fitness and vigor are necessary ito withstand infections such as rheu- Neqlect them Take the recognized standard remedy that contains both quinine and a laxative, Laxative QUININE ^ Tablets STUBBORN SORE QUICKLY YIELDS TO RESINOL *Toralong timelwas incapacitated :by a sore whicH resulted from a. iBlivcr run under my thumb nail.

Pcnkert, 1517 Seventeenth St., Des Moines, is "a typical one. She says: "I have used California Fig Syrup with my boy for three years and with Mary since she was a tiny .baby. Whenever they're the least bit constipated or restless I give them a little. It has them comfortable, happy, well in a jiffy. Their splendid condition proves I knew best when I decided to oisc this wonderful preparation with them." i Physicians endorse the use of pure vegetable California Fig Synip when bad breath, coated tongue, dullness, feverishncss, listlcssncss, etc., show a child's bowels are in need of help. Weak stomach nncl bowels are toned by its gentle aid; appetite increased; digestion and assimilation are so assisted that weak, undernourished children quickly improve in weight, strength and energy.
