Health Department Urges Understanding "Many people do not actually understand the true health conditions that exist in their own communities," states the Iowa State Department of Health. "Our citizens in far too many instances do not know how to recognize poor health conditions. They need health education as to ideal health standards." "Many citizens have a desire to give their support to a movement for health improvement, but they do not know how to proceed," further states the health department. "Often there is no organized Health Committee or Health Council with wide representation from all organizations in the community to take the lead and utilize their services." It is important that every singlt citizen in every community in our state becomes aware of his own health needB as well as the health needs of his community. When people recognize all phases of better health, they will work for better health. Some community organizations have health committees, but often they lack the vision of complete community health. The united efforts of all health committees in a community would broaden the | jn service of each group. United efforts produce greater results. Every community and every county should have the advantages of a health council. What will you and your organization do about this problem? We need more people who will do. Too many simply complain. Community cooperation brings the community development and health is a part of community development. On October 11 and 12 at the Community Development Workshop to be held at the Savery Hotel in Des Moines there will be an excellent opportunity to study the procedures and methods that can be used for developing community coperation. An invitation is extended to all community organizations to send representatives to the workshop and especially to attend and participate in the health workshop section. Here you will find what other community organizations are doing and be able to bring back to your own community many ideas of value. tensive traffic work, trol football tional states (Continued from page 1) use of planes not only in control but in criminal Use of planes in traffic con- have been demonstrated at games and at the Na- Plowing contest.
