The Caroline County Medical Society met at the Brick Hotel in Den;on on Tuesday, November 22nd, at 7 p. m. Following dinner and refreshments, the Society was fortunate to hear from Dr. W. D. Noble, of Easton, who spoke on "The Acute Sur- ;ical Abdomen." Dr. Noble's lecture was very interesting since he divided he abdomen into three portions and isted the symptoms and signs that are usually found in reference to dis- 'ases which necessitate surgical operation for correction. D'r. Noble also Lsted the surgical findings at the ime of operation under the respec- ive pathological conditions that give ise to these symptoms and signs. Allowing Dr. Noble's lecture and the iusiness meeting, Dr. Fred N. Nich- 1s, President of the Caroline County rlcdical Society, invited the members o a meeting at his home during the month of December.

Newton Cox, superintendent The time limit SB six months, unless bad weather should delay operations. Six classrooms, three on the north side and three on the south side of the present building, two lavatories and two locker rooms are being added to the .three-story building. The addition will be of brick to match the original building. Local labor will be employed whenever available and, if more masons are needed, they will be brought in from Cambridge, according to the superintendent. Hiss I. Jewell Simpson, Assistant State Superintendent of Schools in Charge of Elementary Instruction, will be the speaker at the next meeting of the Denton Parent-Teacher Association which falls on the night of December 13th. Miss Simpson will speak on her last summer's trip to Central Europe. We all remember the very excellent talk made by Miss Simpson last year when she addressed the County Teachers Association and I am sure that every teacher and many of the patrons of our schools will want to hear her talk on "Conditions in Central Europe." It is unlikely that Miss Simpson will be able to give this talk in the county again as she has been swamped by requests. Therefore, we extend this invitation to you and hope that a large number · of you can arrange to be present to hear her. The meeting will be held in the Caroline High School Auditorium at 8 p. m.

PRECAUTIONS Here arc some precautions advised by the Bureau of Chiltl Hygiene of the Maryland State Department of Icalth for the protection of babies ind young children from colds and heir damaging after effects. "Doctors from nil over the country ·eport a striking increase in the number of common colds occurring in the ;cneral population. This is a danger ignal of great importance. Babies and young infants are particularly susceptible to colds. In this, as in many other instances, prevention is nuch easier than cure. Treatment of olds in babio; and young children is not very satisfactory. Some infants who contract colds early in the year vill be coughing and sneezing all win- er. The danger docs not lie so much n thu cold or running nose itself a; n the complications which come ater. Not only is the child's general csistance lowered but the cold offers .n excellent avenue for more daiigor- us germs to get into the body. "Prevention is not easy but is very much worthwhile. The method to fol- ow is simple but requires diligence and attention to details. In the first ilace, don't take the baby to crowded places. Do not allow neighbors, riends and relations to play with the ·cry young infants. For the older hild, attempt to make the contact a; short as possible and refuse to allow t at all if the visitor is coughing or jncezing.* The germs discharged in oughing or sneezing may be sprayed jut over remarkably long distances o that a person with a cold should not remain in the same room with a »aby. "The same precautions apply to members of the household but, of ouree, it is impossible for the mother o stay away from the baby when she ms a cold. If this happens the moth- should wear a mask whenever she near the baby. An effective mask may be made by binding a square of B 'auze, 3 by 4 inches in i-izc, and ty- ng tapes to the corners. On the front if the mask one should pin a piece jf paper towel. The paper is a better protection than the gauze but must changed when it becomes moist, fhe mask,can be fastened over the nose and mouth by tying the tapa- ichind the head or cars. ,"Bc particularly careful about vashing the hands before handling .he baby, nnd before preparing the jaby's food. Careful observance of all these dct-iib will prevent a great number of colds, much discomfort ind serious illness. Nose drops for .he prevention or treatment of a cold ihould never be used except under a ihysician's directions. "It is very important for the child's general health to be kept up to M ligh a level as possible. The well jaby who is getting enough of the Jght kind of food, plenty of cod liver oil, ,and tomato juice or orange juice, s in a much better position to rcsis: :olds and other infections. "Every well child under the regular supervision of -a doctor. For thasc who can not afford this service the Bureau of Child Hygiene maintains clinics in all of the counties of the State.

Under the present method the Federal contribution for this is $15 a month, which the states must match.

BUY CHRISTMAS SEALS Prompt returns for the tuberculosis Christmas Seals were asked by the Maryland Tuberculosis Association as the thirty-second annual rfale of these Seals got underway last Thanksgiving Day in an attempt to provide the necessary ammunition Tor another year-round anti-tuberculosis program in Maryland. "If all who received Seals in the mail will pay for them promptly and then use the Seals, they will be doing jxtra service in the campaign," William B. Matthews, mana'ging director of the Maryland Tuberculosis Asso- 'iution said. "Prompt returns arc most heartening in the Seal sale--especially to the chairmen of the local associations," he continued. "Early payment for Seals saves time, energy and money and we hope the people of the counties will continue to respond promptly they have always done. Just how far the Christmas Seal candle will be able to spread its light depends on how many Seals all .of us buy. and use on our holiday mail." In Maryland the Christmas Seals make possible such activities as: the Miracle House, diagnostic clinics, medical research, health education, X-raying and tuberculin testing. A teaching clinic in tuberculosis diagnosis is also maintained for colored physicians. The association is also instrumental in organizing and advising local associations in many of the counties.
