Aunt Net By ROBERT QUI1.LEN "It ain't necessary to ask people whether they like .what the government is doin'. If your garden is parched, you like rain, but if your hay ain't in, you hate it." Possible to Solve Problem of Disease Experiment Conducted in Michigan by Noted Doctor Proves It Can Be Done, Says Clendening Grim Reaper Judge Subpoenaed - By LOGAN CLEXDENTNG, M. D. FOUR OR five years ago my friend, Dr. Stuart Pritchard, told me when we met at a medical society meeting that he was going to ·retire from the nctive practice of medicine. I deprecated this because he TVJIS a brilliant diagnostician in diseases of the lungs, one of the foremost authorities on tuberculosis in. the United States. He replied that he had something bigger in mind. He had, he felt, in his work in life that far only been trying: to drain a. stagnant lake by taking an eye-dropper fall of scummy water from its surface at a time* Now he had an opportunity to show what a thoroughly planned engineering scheme would do to a stagnant human lake of disease and maladjustment. He said he probably would be criticised by the powers that were for violating certain principles in medical ethics, but he then consigned them to a place jrraphically described by a Signer Dante in a highly-praised little effusion published in the thirteenth century. Banish Disease What he was going to do, he said, was to show that disease and human suffering could be banished from the earth; or, at least, to make n more reasonable statement, reduced to a point where they could be discerned only by diligent search. I thought then, to put it mildly, that he was somewhat over-enthusiastic, but it appears he has made good. What happened was that the W. K. Kellogg Foundation of Battle Creek, Michigan, donated enough money -- $46,000,000 -- to demonstrate in sevcTi counties in Michigan near Battle Creek, with a population of 220,000, that a thorough and well-directed program for medical care could approximate Dr. Pritchard's ideal. Dtnrn Their Throats Dr. Pritchard "went mt things in a rather autocratic roarncr. He just naturally forced health down the throats of that community. But he got results. Ha established efficient, non-political health departments. All the children were examined and treated --free, most of the time--for whatever ailed them. The t most modern scientific methods of/handling the women in childbirth were introduced. All the new-born babies in that community were! handled as if they had been the quintuplets; that is, in a thoroughly modern scientific manner. Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. Proper immunization against diptheria, smallpox, whooping cough, typhoid fever and goiter were instituted. The' conditions of living were made sanitary and doctors of public health took charge of sewerage and insect pests, water supply and other matters. Schools Rebuilt The schools were rebuilt or re- cquippcd so that they had sanitary toilets, electric lights, more sunshine, attention to the eyes, ears and bodies of the pupils. Most of all, the teachers were renovated, their preparation and education improved. He must have had plenty of opposition to begin with. But he has finally convinced the hardest bunch of opposition of nil--those he was trying to help. In a vote of these counties on the question of whether the people were willing- to tax themselves 25 cents apiece to continue the work, they voted "Yes" almost unanimously. What has been done there can be done all over the country. It proves that we can solve the problem of disease. We may not have made much progress in governing ourselves, or in eliminating the scourge - ·of war, or in leveling human economic inequalities, but the fundamental source of happiness can be controlled.
