Consequently, the leaflet continues, the careful doctor seeks to determine the source of infection when he finds a case of tuberculosis. Often the search results in the discovery of the "hpfreader" within the family circle or among the family Intimates. "We know that tuberclosls does not just happen," the leaflet states "It is passed from person to person, and the close contact of family life make the spread of tuberculosis within a home difficult to control. Hence It is Important to discover tuberculosis if It exists within the circle of the family, or among servants, visitors, friend*, or neighbors. "Sometimes the clue to an unknown contact In the family circle Is given when a child reacts positively to the 'tuberculin test,' a safe and harmless skin test. A positive reaction shows infection with tuberculosis from some source— perhaps from within the family. Youns children have relatively few chances to hi- infected outside the home, hence u positive reaction to the tuberculin test should start at on<.' a sciirch within th" family circle for the spreader. "Not all tuberculosis comes from within the family circle. One tare- fill study, howrvi-r. has shown that the risk of developing tubereoUi.i is 13 times grt-atcr for members of famihc.-i in which thcro has been a rase of tuberculosis than for persons in (lie community at large." A copy of this leaflet, entitled "Contact", as well as other informational material on tuberculoses, may be obtained without chargt by sending a request to the Iowa Tuberculosis Association. 610 Flynn Huilding.
