COUNTY DOUBLES CHRISTMAS SEAL SALES OVER 1940 (Kosauth. county, under the chairmanship of Mrs. <E. A. Genrlch, sold 106 per cent increase in Christmas Seals over any previous year. This was reported to the state convention •of the Iowa Tuberculosis Association held in Sioux City last Thursday and Friday and at which Mrs. Genrlch was one of the three county chairmen In the state on the program. Attending with Mrs. Gen- rlch was also Mrs. C. C. Inman, of Bancroft. Iowa Now Third in Nation It was announced at the convention that Iowa is now third In the nation for the lowest number of T. B. cases. Nebraska slipped to fourth place, which was occupied by Iowa last year. Mrs. Genrich said that the convention discussed the problem of the after-war increase in T. B, something that has been true after all wars. The association is perfecting plans to combat this increase. Because of the tremendous step-up in industrial centers and because of the possibilities of fighting men contracting the disease on the world-wide battle fronts the association feels that there will be much need of hard work in the next few years. Already an increase has been reported in some industrial centers the past few months, Mrs. Genrich said.
