Mayor J. C. Walton Leads Health
Parade in Oklahoma City.
Mayor J. C. Walton, of Oklahoma
City Governor-elect of the Rtate.
Saturday lead the health parade
which opened the Fifteenth Annual
Seal balo for Oklahoma Citv.
In accepting the invitation to lead
the parade the Mayor says, "This to
my mind is a most unique and satis
factory way of calling attention to
the prime importance of paying more
attention to public health particu
larly child health.
Although the tuberculosis death
rate has been cut more than half
since the inception of the anti-tuberculosis
campaign, yet the annual loss
of 10,000 people from n disease
which is preventable and curable
proves the end of the road is not
yet in sight that there must be no
turning back until the plague is
wiped out altogether.
Not only tuberculosis but those
other diseases which in themselves
arc a menace and which help to in
crease the ravages of tuberculosis
must be eradicated. It can be done
in only one way by education of the
public in all the rules of health.
To show my official endorsement
of the parade and movement which
should be participated in by every
representative civic group in our
community, I cheerfully agree to
ride at its head.
With best wishes for the entire
success of the Seal Sale campaign."
J. C. WALTON.
