There has for some time been a
well defined movement on the part of
the Tri-City Social Service club and
other organizations towards a system
a:ic campaign against tuberculosis in
the three cities, and the founding of
a tent colony for its treatment. What
bearing the legislature's bill may have
on this movement remains to be seen,
when the committee makes lis report.
