Facts About Tuberculosis The Maryland Tuberculosis Association la the Christinas Seal agency for the State of Maryland. There are 1,500 tuberculosis associations and 1,200 smaller committees affiliated with the National Tuberculosis Association in the United States. The tuberculosis death rate in Maryland has been reduced from 204.1 per 100,000 population to 78.6 per 100,000 since the Christmas Seal sales were commenced. Tuberculosis is seventh among diseases as a cause of death and is the greatest cause between the ages of 15 and 45, the most productive period of life. One thousand three hundred and eighty-four people in Maryland died of tuberculosis List year. It has been estimated that there are approximately nine active cases of disease for each annual death. The annual toll from tuberculosis in the United States would be 250,000' if the death rate of the early 19fjp'a still prevailed. Under present mortality conditions the annual death toll is about 70,000. Tuberculosis is responsible for the death of about 4,000 children under the ·age of 15 each year in the United States. There are estimated to be more than 500,000 active cases of tuberculosis in the United States at present. Tuberculosis is preventable and curable and can be wiped out.

General Malin Craig, Chief of Staff, (left) listens while General J. 0. AfaHOoroH* converses with the 9 Army Corps Areas during the telephone conference call which linked them via a coast-to-coast circuit recently for the first time. The first occasion in its history in ·which the War Department in Washington, D. C., was in two-way voice contact with all of its nine Army corps areas at one and the same time occurred recently when Major General Joseph O. Mauborgne, chief signal officer, conferred with the signal officers in the headquarters of all nine corps areas over a coast-to-coast telephone conference circuit. This demonstration of fast intercommunication was arranged, with the cooperation of the Bell Telephone System. Included in the conference circuit were the headquarters of the corps areas at Boston, New York, Baltimore, Atlanta, Columbus, Chicago, Omaha, San Antonio and San Francisco. The commanding officer and his staff in each area heard the demonstration and conversed with one another and with General Malin Craig, chief of staff of the U. S. Army, who attended in Washington with members of the War Department general staff. ' The conference circuit used in this demonstration of the speed with which the War Department can communicate with all its major divisions throughout the country is a recent Bell System development in telephony. Special switchboard equipment makes it possible to link together by telephone persons at separate points anywhere in this country and even abroad, so that all may hear and join in tho conversation. While specially arranged, the conference circuit set up for the War Department was not essentially dilTer- ent from those regularly used to interconnect groups of people for ness or social conversation.

TUMP-OSS ASSOCIATION IKSTHO- MEHTALI iiEDUCriON OF T. B. DEATHS Activkics Su:/po:'.ed By Chrislmas Seals Helping To - Win Fight Against Disease. CHRISTMAS SEAf.S { The thirty-second annual Christmas I Seal sale in Maiyland was started on | Thanksgiving Day in oielcr to provide i the funds necessary for continuing the fi^ht ngaanst tuber- culojis in this state for another year. The C h r i s t m a s Seal ^nle has made possible an intensive a n t i - t u b e r c u l o s i s campaign in Maryland and the United States for more than thiity years. During this time the death rate from this dis- Tubenulosts eacc has been reduced by almost two-thirds. In Maryland, when the oiganized effort to eradicate it got under way in 1907, the death rate was 201.1 per hundred thousand population. Lnst year it was 78.6. This reduction hrs been responsible for the saving of thousands of lives and much sickness. The Maryland Tuberculosis Association, the sponsor of the sale in this state and the" agency which has been conducting the organized fight against the disease, maintains a program of activities designed to eventually eradicate this scourge. Some of the activities of the association which have helped bring about this reduction nrc: tho Miracle House at Claiborne, a tubc-ci'locis prcven- torium for white Mn.rylrnd Children who have be on in contact with the dis- ca ,o lire ivr.!r.ou"i_hed; a statewide system of ficc chest clinics; medical research; n clinic for instructing colored |h: T . iri-im in tuberculosis di.v-nosi ; liraltb education; X-raying 1 and till:'rrrlin tcrt'r 1 ':; nrvl the pur- cl^so rf n n c c ' l i i y di-.nno'tic equip- AH Indians Clever at Chipping Their Flints Though some Indians wore more proficient at it than others, and the methods of some tribes were more advanced tlian those of others, there was very little secret about the making of flint arrow heads, and probably nil the Indians knew how, says a writer in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Flint and similar stones were used not so much because of their hardness as for the reason they could be flaked off and fashioned into the desired shapes as arrow, lance, spear or harpoon heads, knives, saws or scrapers. The flint was to bo found in open fields, boulder beds and elsewhere, and the tribes camped 1 occasionally near the larger supplies to break ofT with rocks or hammers the quantities and sizes of flint chips needed. These were carried home, to bo flaked off and worked into shapes with the aid of sharp-pointed implements of bone. The waste and refuse of the process, as well as the tools cm- ployed in it, have often been found on the sites of early Indian dwellings. The products of the primitive industry range in size from tiny arrow tips to ceremonial spear heads more than a foot Ions . . . . m sj? $ I TOYTOWN- OPENING "S I Better Stores to $1.OO DENTON, MD.

One of the most important factors in the fight against tuberculosis Is early diagnosis or discovering the cases before the disease has had a chance to progress. It is much easier to euro an early case than one which has become advanced and the chances of its being spread arc lessened when it is known about and being treated. The activities of the association are designed to make early diagnosis possible. There arc three groups that must be watched very carefully in order to check the spread of the disease. These groups nrc young people of school and post-school age, -parents and other adults who are in contact with children and young people, and Negroes of all ages. Children and Negroes are extremely susceptible to tuberculosis infection. In_order to eventually wipe oat the disease it will be necessary to discover all of the people afflicted'with the disease and get them und« treatment A» long ns people with the disease are circulating amongst us the spread is going to continue. g All contacts of tuberculosis, suspects or people haviag any of th* so- called "danger signals" should be examined. The "danger signals" are: · cough, indigestion, loss of weight, loss of appetite, fatigue, fever, night sweats and the expectoration of blood.
