PUBLIC HEALTH IN INDIANA
Health (administration In Indiana hag
for a long time past been vigorous and
energetic, as it is in many of our ot'.i
lt states. It has been unique also, pecu
liarly up-to-date and popular In its
methods of attracting attention and
affording instruction. The latest ac
tiiity of the health forces of the state
is thoroughly characteristic. Governor
Kalston has issued a proclamation des
ignating Friday. Oct. 2, us disease pre
vention day. He urges Ihe cities and
towns throughout the state to makw
special arrangements for appropriate
exercises, emphasizing the importance
of public health, and the joint respon
sibility of all citizens therefor in order
to inspire in them a desire to co-operate
In all sane efforts for the preven
tion of physical diseases. The state
board of health lias prepared a spe
cial bulletin containing a copy of the
governors proclamation and sugges-
j tions for the celebration of disease
' prevention day in the towns of In
diana. Seme of these suggestions are
terse and apt and deserve to be circu

"Let every home, each yard and
back yard, the rears of stores and a'l
streets and alleys bo made spec. ia!ly
clean for disease prevention day. I-et
each person wear clean clothes on thut
daj-, take a bath, put on a clean sh'rt,
clean socks and clean collar and get
his shoes shined. Get a hair cut and
a shave, wash your hands and face,
clean your finger naila. and don't spit
on the sidewalks. f.et everybody be
clean and talk cleanliness and health."
Suggested mottoes for disease pre
vention day are also contained In the
bulletin. Some of these are:
"The only good fly is the dead fly."
"Well-kept alleys pay better divi
dends than well-kept cemeteries."
"Public health Is public wealth."
"Bat the rat and swat the fly."
"Don't take patent medicines."
"All the time is clean up time."
"Dust, dirt, dampness, darkness
drink, will always kill."
That the state board of health does
not hesitate to follow its own sugges
tions is shown by the public health
side show recently given at the In
diana state fair. A large circus tent
was Installed en the fair ground.5? with
banners depicting health topics dis
played in front after the manner of
the time-honored side show. The sec
retary of the state association for the
Ftudy and prevention of tuberculosis
acted as barker for the show, end,
through a megaphone, announced to
the gathered crowds the attractions to
be found within the tent. The Indian
apolis newsboys' band gave serenades
at intervals in front to attract the peo
ple. Inside the tent, lectures illustrat
ed with lantern slides ajid moving pic
tures, exhibits, charts and demonstra
tions on various health topics all
served to emphasize the importance
and value of health. It is estimated
that over twenty thousand people
passed through the tent during 'he
state fair. This sort of a campaign
will certainly have a marked result
on jniblic sentiment and eventually
on permanent health conditions in the
state. The people of Indiana are to
be congratulated on having a state
board of health that is active and pro
gressive and especially on having a
broad-minded, intelligent and pub'. -spirited
governor who is sufficiently
interested in the welfare of his people
to place .himself at the head of the
public health movement in the state.
