SCHOOL MEDICAL INSPECTION.
Dr. E. A. Hines, of Seneca, Delivered
Address Before GroOnvHle Folks.
(The Piedmont, March 4.)
The feature ot the Greenville Pub
lic Health Meet, held at 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon in council cham
bers at the City Hall, was an able
address by Dr. E. A. Mines, of Sen
eca. IQ addition to being a member
of the South Carolina State Board of
Health, iDr. Hines is editor of the
State Medical Journal, and is recog
nized as the pioneer in the South of
tho medical inspection of school
children plan, which agitation Dr.
Hines set on foot more than twenty
The attendance at yesterday's
meeting, considering the inclement
weather which prevailed, was re
garded by Dr. C. E. Smith, director
of public health, and his assistants
as splendid, moro than twenty pub
lic health workors being present.
Dr. Hines presonted a complete re
view of the origin in this State of
the medical inspection plan among
school children, telling how he first
becamo interested in the subject. He
stated that he began his efforts twen
ty or more years ago, at which time
nothing along this lino had been at
tempted In tho South, if in the Uni
ted States. He was then a young
physician, just beginning to practice,
and he did not know how to go about
putting his more or less Intangtbel
plans into operation. Me was afraid
that tho other physicians would
think he had violated some of the
ethics of the profession if he advo
cated any such Idea, and ho was at
the same time afraid that he would
never succeed in making the general
public appreciate what he was try
ing to accomplish.
Ono morning as he was at the
breakfast table with his wife, he
saw a little chap-stoop-shouldered
and giving evidence of being heir to
all the common diseases which af
flict children-proceeding on his
way to school, and then and there
Dr. Hines reached the conclusion
that some one had to make the first
plunge, and that he might as well
attempt it as some one else. He con
ferred with school officiais and of
fered, strictly Incognito, a gold medal
for the school child making the most
Improvement during the scholastic
year In personal hygiene. This was
continued for several sessions until
the general interest of the public
was aroused, and Anally resulted in
the first medical Inspection of school
children being inaugurated in the
public schools of Seneca-that be
ing, to the best knowledge of local
anthorlties, the first attempt made
in that direction in the South.
Porcontogo is I/o wer ed.
Dr. 'Hines stated that when he
first put his plan Into operation In
Seneca the percentage of defectives
discovered in the public schools was
67, but that if the plan should be In
augurated in Greenville to-day, lt is
not probable that there would be
more than 3 0 per cent of defectives
discovered, because of the health
propaganda distributed among par
ents and children and in the schools
during recent years.
Dr. Hines' address yesterday af
ternoon was pronounced ono of the
best that tho health workers here
had ever heard, and appreciation on
j tho part of those present was ex
! pressed to Dr. Hines for the address
and to Dr. Smith for being able to
i secure the Seneca physician.

BOtli ROT AND PHU?THD SSS?. !
Director Barre Suma Vp the Work of
In view of the recent newspaper
discussion of boll rot and the sul
phuric acid method of treating cot
ton seed, and in order that the farm
ers may not bo confused or inadvert
ently misled by any of these articles,
the following conclusions, based up
on more than ten years of study by
tho South Carolina Experiment Sta
tion, are given:
The station's study of anthracnoso
or boll rot dates back to 1908. Tho
progress made has boen reported
continuously in the station publica
tions since that date. Tho extension
service, through its "Weekly News
Notes," has kept the farmers inform
ed as to the practical results obtain
ed. It may be well at this lime to
repeat some of the recommendations
The treatment of cotton with con
centrated sulphuric acid was flrst
tested by Director Duggar, of tho
Alabama experiment station,in la ll.
'He found that it reduced the infec
tion, but not enough to control boll
rot. Our results agree with his. In
1909 we discovered that tho anthrac
noso fungus actually penetrates the
seed before thoy are mature and re
mains alive within the seed until
planting time the following spring.
This important discovery that tho
fungus is carried within the seed was
announced and fully described In the
190S-09 annual report of the station
and has served as the basis for the
control Measures which wero devel
oped, and which have been pub
lished from time to time.
Investigations have been conduct
ed, using different chemicals and
gases, different methods of heating
and drying, etc., continuously up to
the present time. None of the meth
ods yet devised have been effective
for practical use in completely elim
inating the fungus which, living in
the seed, perpetuates the boll rot.. ..
The station does not recommend
the treatment of seed with concen
trated sulphuric acid to control boll
rot alone. For the practical farmer
a better way of eliminating boll rot
is by careful seed selection and crop
rotation and the use of three-year-,
old seed, since In seed of this age all
the boll rot spores have died out.
Tho station has emphasized these
methods through the practice of
which the diseaso has been largely
eliminated from the State, resulting
in the saving of millions of dollars
to the farmers. Where the careless
practice of planting diseased seed is
persisted in, the disease still causes
serious loss. As Indicating the pres
ent limited extent of boll rot, we
were able, in the fall of 1920, after
diligent search, with the help of the
county agents, to locate only one
field in the State from which we
could obtain seed heavily Infected
with boll rot for use in our labora
tory and field experiments. In spite
of the fact that seed :tre brought in
to the station every year from all
over the State for planting in Our
tests, only once have we got hold nf
Infected seed, and at no time during
the past three years has the per cent
of cotton bolls in any field of the
experiment station or college farm
affected with anthracnose, or boll
rot, exceeded ono per cent. Usually
no infection has been found except
in experimental plots, whore wo on
purpose planted diseased seed.
Any one desiring infomation as
to tho concentrated sulphuric acid
treatment of cotton seed will find
full directions In ?ur "Weekly News
Notes" of April 2, 1921. Additional
scientific information of special In
terest may bo had from Station Bul

As to the use of dellnted cotton

strongly recommend. Such seed are
freer of disease, more readily han

Dellnted cotton seed can be plant
