EVERY CASE TO BE TRACED
Pupils Showing Slighest Symp
torns to Be Rigidly
In an effort to rheelc the epidemic of
measles running rampant through the
Richmond public schools, a mass
meeting of teachers and principals was
held yesterday afternoon at the John
Marshall High School. The main flour
of the big auditorium was well filled
with teachers of white schools and the
gallery crowded with the colored teach?
ers. Nearly MO esses of the disease
have been reported to the Health De?
partment since January 1. fourteen
schoolrooms having been infocted.
Superintendent J. A. ('. Chandler.
Chief Health Offleer E. C. Levy and
School Physician N. T. Ennett were
the speakers. It was decided to be
impracticable to close all of the schools
at this time. as. with the disease already
B Idespread over the city, that would
nag reach the trouble. The object of:
the meeting yesterday was to put :
teachers on their guard and Instruct,
them how the earliest symptoms of
measles might be detected, and such |
pupils at once excluded.
Dr. Levy explained that epidemics of,
measles are recurrent every third year, >
and that the disease Is spread most '
generally through the gathering to
gather of children in schools and Sunday
-? hooia. The disease, he stated, was
always contracted by direct contact,
never through clothing or other articles,
and never through the medium of a
third person A teacher who was im?
mune, he said might safely v isit a case
of measles without danger of carrying
the disease to other pupils.
The eruption appears on the four?
teenth clay after the exposure, but
from the ninth day after the exposure?
that is. for five days before the eruption
appears?the disease is highly con?
tagious. That is to say. it will not do
to await the outbreak of an eruption of
measles to exclude a child from school, .
as by the time the eruption appears
the child wtli have had five days in which
to spread contagion to others The early
Symptome. DT Levy explained, were
cold in the head, cough and inflamed
eyes, with certain yellowing spots on
the Inside of the mouth
The disease, it was explained, is sel?
dom fatal In children of school age.
and for that reason is sometimes
spoken of lightly, but It has a very high
motralitv rate with children under .
four vears. making it highly desirable
that the teachers should warn pupils .'
sent home with measles not to expose .
vourger children ift the home Young
children in a house where there is a
case of measlee will almost certainly
lane it. and Dr. Levy urged that In such
cases a physician be called at once?it
will not do merely to give the baby a ball
does of the elder child's medicine.
Dr Eennett explained the p:an
agreed upon between the health and
school authorities for keeping close
trsck of each case with the aid of the
teachers Whenever a case la reported
to the Health Board by attending phy?
sician, a district nurse or physician will
ascertain the first date of eruption, and
the school and room an the child at
tends, sending a card to the St hool
Board at once with this information.
Allowing nine days from the day this
child was first exposed, the teacher will
be put on notice of the probable time
when other cases may be expected, and
will be ebnaled to watch cloeely for
svmptoms of disease. Printed matter
on the subject of measles is to be dis?
tributed In the schools for the children
to take home, and every effort will be
made to meet and conquer the epidemic
without closing down the entire school
svttem So fsr there hss been only one
death this year from measles, but N
was noticeable in the epidemic of |?10
thst most of the deaths came sfter the
number of cases was on the wane, and
when the contagion had been carried
from the schools to small children in the

BUREAU OF MARKETS
MAY BE ESTABLISHED
Senator Holte Smith's Bill Fa?
vored Unanimously by
(?Special to The Times-Dispatch.) i
Washington. January 17.?The House i
Committee on Agriculture to-day agreed
to report favorably the bill of Senator (
Hoke Sroith. of Georgia, for the creation |
of a bureau of markets in the Depar*-1
ment of Agriculture. The vote on the
biU was unanimous.
It is learned that Representative
Lever, whiie favoring the bill, was no*
entirely satisfied that its provisions
were broad enough to give authority
for the work ?which he thought neces?
sary to be done in order to carry out the (
purposes of those who have suggested
this additional piece of machinery for
the enlightment and benefit of the
farmers. In addition, it is his idea that
on account of tbe crowded condition of
the House calendar, it would be im?
possible to pass the bill even with the
favorable and unanimous report of the
Committee on Agriculture. Hence, it .
is understood that Mr. Lever offered
in the committee an amendment to the
agricultural appropriation bill, which
must pass Congrese. carrying an appro?
priation of 160.000 to become available
July 1. 1913. for the purpose of giving
the Secretary of Agriculture the au- '
thority and the money with which to
hegin the work contemplated in the
measure, wkcch suggests the creation of
a bureau of markets In that depart?
ment. This amendment was adopted.
Mr. Lever believes it to bo the begin?
ning of a movement which ultimately
will so far toward the solution of the
vexed problems of the high cost of
living: providing, as it will, the ms-,
ehinerp by which the producer sn ;
conaumer are brought closer to gather
and furnishing means by which the
estimated annua.1 loss, on account of
bad marketing, of tl.5*0.000.000. can be
saved to the American people.

University of Pennsylvania and

Philadelphia. January 17.?The poet*
tion taken by Pennsylvaina that Louis
Sanville is eligible to represent thai
university in swimming meets with
\ other college teams may lead to a
disagreement with the A. A. U. Tho
registration committee of the Middle
i Atlantic Association has found that
Sanville is guilty of professionalism;
and is. therefore, not eligible to swim
as an amateur. This finding is unheid
by the national body, according to
Oustavus T. Kirby.
The A. A. U. preferred charges
against Sanville and at a bearing no
was declared a professional, as it wag
i claimed he had accepted remuneration
, for giving swimming lessons at Haver
ford last, summer.
The Pennsylvania faculty committee*
? after reviewing the case, was of tho
' opinion that the charge of prefessional
: ism was not well taken, and that, in
their opinion, Sunville had not over
! stepped the murk. So far as Penn?
syivania is concerned, Sanville's a ma
' teur standing is O. K.
The registration committee of the
! A. A. U. held a meeting yesterday to
consider Penn's action, and at its clogs ?
