THUHSDAY, MARCH 30, 1939 APPEAL MADE IN EARLY DIAGNOSIS CAMPAIGN HERE Work in Tuberculosis To Start Next Month Throughout County An appeal to leaders in civic ana commercial activities foi- co- gPfation is being made by Dr. Ralph E. Smiley, chairman of the general committee of the early ° la s? os js campaign of the Cerro Gordo County Tuberculosis association. Dr. Smiley is now selecting his committee members and making concrete plans ror the county's program o£ tuberculosis diagnosis to start next month. Is Serious Menace Tuberculosis continues to be a serious menace to public health ui spite of the substantial gains made in its conquest," said Dr Smiley. "Eight out of every ten persons admitted to sanatoria today are in advanced stages o£ the disease. "Early tuberculosis is easy to cure, but can be found in most instances only through an X-ray examination. Our tuberculosis organization is urging us to unearth within our community those cases of tuberculosis which otherwise might not come to light until cure is more difficult. This our leaders can do by suggesting a physical examination to those whom we may suspect of harboring this disease, and who thereby become a source of contagion not only to their families but to the community as a whole." The spring program will be explained at a meeting of directors of the association and others interested in the work of the organization at the Eadmar hotel Monday noon at 12 o'clock. To Hear Broadcast The meeting is being called at 12 o clock jn order to be ready to listen in on a statewide broadcast from 12:25 to 12:40. This broadcast, sponsored by the Iowa Tuberculosis association, will be the presentation of "Public Enemy MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE No. 1," a dramatization, from station WOI. The meeing will be opened by Paul McAuley, president of the county association. Dr. Smiley will speak on "Reasons for Early Diagnosis." Dr. E. L. Wuiizer, Clear Lake, program chairman of the association, will speak on "Our Plan for Early Diagnosis." Miss Marguerite Pfcffer, Des Moines, field director of the state association, will present "Headquarters Slants," following which there will be a round table discussion and introduction of campaign workers. Following the program there will be a short meeting, at which directors will be asked to approve the recommendation of the executive board, changing the date of the annual meeting of the association from fall to spring.
