THE CAPE WEEjKLY TRIBUNE, TAPE GIRARDEAU. MISSOURI
EFFECTIVELY FIGHTING THE WHITE PLAGUE.
The health educational eimipiiinn which has lcen carried on
through the schools of Missouri against tuberculosis with the
Red Cro.-s Seal during the past three years has met with a re
sponse from pulilic school superintendents principals and teach
ers, that has passed far beyond the most cherished hope of the
oflicers of the Missouri Association for the Relief and Control
of Tuberculosis, which in this work, is acting in co-operation with
the American Red Cross and the National Association for the
Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis.
While this campaign has been carried on with tuberculosis
as the leader, the fight has really been one for the health of the
ehild in the school and in the home, though now we know that
tuberculosis is essentially a disease of childhood, that in
fection takes place and the disease starts in that period of jife
and develops either then or more frequently in the period of
parenthood under the stress of motherhood or hard work in sup
port of family.
In 1!H0 this campaign was carried on in five populous cities
of the State. In I'.Hl it was carried on in 1011 communities;
in 1012. in U"0, and in the campaign of this year the Associa
tion has good rason to believe that its appeal to teachers to take
up the work will be responded to in 1000 cities, villages and school
districts in the State.
Effort has been made this year to extend the sale of the
seals to about 10 per cent of the one-room rural schools. This
extension of the campaign to rural communities would be impossi
ble without the unselfish co-operation of the most overworked
and most conscientious public oflicers in the Mate the County
Superintendents of Schools. Through them and only through
them can the Association carry out its projected plan to bring
to each family in the State, even to it in the remotest cabin
home in the wooded hills, occasion to consider its health and
its welfare in relation to the local community and to the State,
and to give it opportunity to do its share in helping save Mis
souri 5,000 lives a year the death toll of tuberculosis.
When one considers that the average annual salary of a teach
er -in Missouri outside the superintendents and principals of high
schools, the most poorly remunerated servant of the State, is
but $453.80 and that approximately 9,000 of them receive a yearly
stipend of less than that amount, can one hope that an appeal
to them for additional service to the public should meet enthu
What more generous response than that which has been given
by teachers to this appeal for gratuitous help, could be wished
for from those who receive but $1.50 a day for the service which
they render to the State? When once the functions of the State
to rightly educate and to guard the health of its people are ef
ficiently performed and the implied service is rightly paid for,
crime and poverty and their attendant trains of ills will for the
most part pass away.
The hearty co-operation of the schoolmen and schoolwomen
of Missouri in this educational campaign shows their realization
of the importance of health in education, of health in its relation
to the welfare of the State and what is more significant, their
realization of their own responsibility to the community for the
health as well as ecudation of its people.

WILSON A ONE-TERM MAN WOULD aST THREE DAYS
THE ADVANTAGE OF GOOD ROADS.
No city or town in the country will deny the fact that, if
they have good roads, that such highways are mainly responsi
ble' for their business success. It is pretty generally conceded
that no public improvement has better effect in a commercial
way than good roads. Farmers do not care to drive to any
city or even a nearby town, in bad weather, if the roads are not
in good condition. It is worth something to have the farmers'
Automobiles are not very pleasant to ride in where roads are
not in good repair, hence, the large parties that pass through the
country usually postpone such trips until the weather is more
agreeable. Loss of business from automobile parties means much
to many cities of the country, lloads need attention especially
in the spring and in the fall.
There are at present :.". 000 miles of sand-clay roads in the
United States, mainly in the Southern States, according to the
Oflice of Public Roads, United States Department of Agriculture.
If the working of the roads i deferred until late in summer, when
they are dry, they are not only mueh more ditlicult to put in
proper shape, but the cost of repair is greater than if they were
worked early in the spring.
Previous to 1S0-I comparatively little, it' any, of these roads
existed. The popularity of this type of load is due to the facts
that it i- cheap, comparatively firm and durable, easy to construct
and repair, and that the matt rial- out of which it is l.iiilt are
plentiful in many sections of the country.
The sand-clay road i made by mixiiiti the sand and clay

Is pledged to the one-term principle
and therefore cannot consistently ac
cept the nomination.
Republican leaders from time to
tlnip have whispered the name Goeth
als In their conferences. Some of
them, however, even the extreme re
actionaries, still seem to have some
kind of a hope that means will be
found to Indorse Theodore Roosevelt
without being obliged to give over tho
party name, Republican. Tho old
party's chieftains seem to think they
will be obliged to nominate somebody
having strong personal appeal If there
Is to be any hope of success.
Goethals May Be Willing.
It has been intimated here and
there la Washington that men who
know the governor of the Panama ca
nal zone think he has shown some
signs of an awakening ambition to h"
president. Col. Goethals, Judging by
what he has done, probably has hb
share of wisdom, and, while army nnd
navy officers notoriously have been
flounderers when they huve entered
frke swamp of politics, Goethals possi
bly might prove to be an exception.
While the Republicans have been
whispering about Goethals and the
poFslbility of nominating him and
trusting to his supposed great per
sonal popularity to pull him through.
It has been told to them also la whis
pers that the zone's governor Is u Pro
gressive. In the present frame of
mind of the Republican leaders the
fact that Gocthalt Is n Progressive
may make little difference, for all they
will have to do will be to knoc k the
capital out, spell progressive with a
small letter and add Republican with
a capital after an Inserted hyphen.
Progressive at Nominee.
It seems as certain as things cna
be, so far In advance, that unless tho
Democrats make some awful blunder
the Republican party next time will
nominate a man who has been con
sistently progressive, or who can
prove that ho has become a progres
sive even If his conversion came at a
late hour. It did not tako Champ
Clark's word of prophecy to put Wil
liam K. Horah Into the front rank of
runners for tho Republican prize. Tho
Goethals matter remains yet to lie
