The question of Incarcerating pris?

Health Officer i:. i. Reardon before
the Hoard of County Commissioners
This |8 a complicated question and
one that will never be solved correct?
ly until the county commissioners
build a hospital annex to the county j
jail or build a largo and more mod- 1
em lanitary jail.
The recent state Board of Health j
regulations, which ar.- law, absolutely
forbid prisoners with communicable I
diseases being placed In any city or
county prison unless the >ick prison- j
era are separated from the well pris?

The sumter health officer contends
that it is the business of the County
Commlssloneri to provide a suitable
county jail or hospital annex, and that
It is the business of the local board of
health and health officer to enforce
the State Hoard of Health laws.
Therefore at Tuesday's meeting of the
county board Health Officer Reardon
insisted that Davis Wells ,a tuber?
culosis prisoner be removed from the
county jail or separated from the oth
er prisoners. There are other provis?
ions of th- State Hoard of Health laws
not being complied with in the coun?
ty jail, but the county Commission?
ers have not had time since the State
Hoard regulations were received to
comply with all the new regulations
luch as providing a bathing place for
new prisoners, and fresh clothing for
them while their clothing is being
! washed and disinfected, and other
requirements of the new law.
The State Hoard of Health laws
take precedence over all other laws
as laws protecting public health al?
ways have precedence over conflicting
l'nles? the tuberculosis prisoner is
immediately separated from other
prisoners the local health officer will
call in the State Hoard of Health to
enforce Its mandates.
It now begins to look as though the
county officials with the assistance of
the county legislative delegation will
have to move to the end where a
more modern jail will be erected or
