State Board of Health Will Ask Gen
eral Assembly To Provide
For Colored 8ufferers
That the State establish a tubercu
losis sanatorium for negroes to be built
and maintained under the came general
plan as the present State Sanatorium
for white people is the request of. the
members of the State Board of Health
in a resolution unanimously adopted
that is to : be presented to the State
Legislature at its present session.
The condition on which the members
of the Board of Health recommend that
the colored people of the State be pro
vided with a tuberculosis sanatorium
is that the patient or his family, friends
or the city, or county, or some other
agency, one or i all combined, provide
one dollar per day per patient f or the
maintenance of the institution, and
that the State provide the grounds
buildings and "equipment, and the re
mainder of what is required to main
tain the Institution. -
This request of -the legislature nas
been asked first, for the reason of the
prevalence of tuberculosis among the
negroes of the State and the high death
rate from same, and for the freedom
with which the negroes transmit the
disease both to their own people and
to the white, and, second, for the rea
son that the work of bur State Sana
torium has long since past the experi
mental stage, and justifies, through its
records, asking the State to prevent
tuberculosis among the negroes as it
4s. doing among the whites.
