It Is an imperative task, made more so by the state of the world today. -"Disease is never a private matter. Yet multitudes of people live as though they believe that their health is entirely their own business. A sick person must be cared for by others. A diseased body becomes a burden upon society. And a disease like tuberculosis, which Is contagious, makes the carrier of it a menace to all with whom he comes in contact. A tubercular person may be an innocent carrier of a deadly disease, yet he is a menace to human health just as surely as though he Afi Have Si mi id r Typt Of Improvement* Fdh Ntorly Six Miles to Parachute Record -- -.*V r * *«&.«' :?'

It is always a fight against the poverty of those who are financially unable to care for themselves. And most of ail. it la a struggle with indifference, a mood of which moat of ua are guilty.

According to Administrator Abner R. Ferguson .establishment of such standard* ha* long been an FHA objective. It would, he says, result in a better investment for the home owner, a sounder mortgage for the lending institution and a more stable and livable community. Adequate and well-planned street improvement*, soundly constructed at reasonable cost, are a vital factor in the lasting aucewa of any new residential development. Already many Insuring offices have made working agreement* with county, city, and other local author* itie&s in regard to street improvement* and definite standards have been established. Mr, Ferguson said. Bask agreements have been reached with local authorities by other FHA insuring offices. It U the expectation that soon such agreements will cover all the United State, M wcQ as. Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, Uon in tha effort to discover tu- bereulosie wherever it lurks* so that it may be treated and cured. "We may have confidence in our work because tha fight against tuberculosis is a successful task. Real progress has been made.

The land planning division of the FHA has made exhaustive studies of the actual traffic requirements for various types of subdivisions, the types and widths of pavements for different densities of traffic, the high cost of inadequate pavcarents to both the city and the home owners, and the value of close cooperation between city and county authorities in establishing uniform standards." It was pointed out that the FHA land planning division had worked out baste costs for streets in various sections of the country. ar« brokan dow» into ponent parts of streets, sidewalks, storm and sanitary sewers, curbs, gutters, trees, park strips, etc.—with variations for concrete, asphalt* aad other types of paving material Then the standards have been adapted to the sol! and the customs of the cities aud counties in the insuring ana of each office by the local underwriting staff, in consultation with the land planning division and ta cooperation with teal highway englBesrs, land planning com- misstoni, and thHsrr autherttisa.

Iron out many differences between city and county governments, to untangle divided or disputed authority, to aid subdivision developers in making detailed plans and calculating specflc costs and thus eventually to give better values to home buyers. In more than one area, it was stated, city and county highway authorities had been more or less at cross purposes for years. FHA ofli cials cooperated with these authorities in establishing common-sense requirements based on facts and fig- urea. The result was the adoption of uniform requirements by the city, the county, and the FHA.
