TUBERCULOSIS SANATORIUM New Cases of Tuberculosis The executive committee and the district chairman of the Butler county tuberculosis sanatorium committee held a regular semi-weekly meeting at their headquarters in the Rent schler building in Hamilton, Monday afternoon. New plans were made to appeal to the people of Butler county for the support of the tuberculosis sanator ium bond issue. Mr. Joseph W. Fichter, Oxford, County committee chairman, presided in the absence of Mr. J. A. B. Lovett, general chairman. The committee discussed the tuber culosis problem from the rural angle. Mr. Fichter pointed out that the rural section of the county has as much of a tuberculosis problem- as the urban, saying that an average of 17 people per year have died from tuberculosis in the rural sections in the past five years. This is compared to an aver age of 47 deaths per year in the cities. "The average person believes," said Mr. Fichter, "that farmers and rural people are not as susceptable to tuber culosis as are city dwellers. However, this is not entirely true, because the rural sections of Butler county have about one-third of the population and one-third of the tuberculosis deaths, so that the problem is one for the entire county." A tuberculosis sanatorium is an as set in many Ohio communities, the committee says in its bulletin. Point ing to 16 other Ohio counties who maintain their own sanatariums. The first county sanatorium was establish ed in 1906 in Cuyahoga county, which now has over 500 beds. The last county to provide care was Tuscara was with a new sanatorium in 1937. The largest sanatorium in the state is in Cincinnati, where there are 630 beds. These 16 counties are progressing each year in their battle against the great white plague. While Butler county, compared to the more pro gressive counties is years behind. NEW BEER_PERMITS Transfer from Hoy Morton, 317 Maple avenue, Hamilton, to Fred Morton and Roy P.

But today, the continuation of good government in Hamilton is seriously threatened by the slot-machine and policy rackets. At several times during the past two years, when public indignation at open flaunting of the law has be come strong enough, these gambling devices have dis appeared, but only to reappear in even greater num bers. Today, the need and demand is for definite assur ance of the COMPLETE and PERMANENT ELIMI NATION of these rackets which take immense sums of money from our children as well as adults without rendering any service whatsoever, which injure Ham ilton's reputation, and which tend inevitably to cast ROBERT J.

No longer does anyone dare to suggest selling our gas and electric plants to private interests, or that we return to the old political handling of the city's affairs, with the "spoils" and patronage which went with it. No longer is there active opposition to the well-proved policy of employing a capable, professional city man ager, without political ties or other entangling alliances. Is it any wonder—when the direct benefits secured from 10 years of non-political handling of the city's affairs by Council plus highly efficient management are to be seen on all sides of us?

These published statements by two present members of Council, both of whom were elected on the Charter Ticket and who are now candidates for re-election, endorsed by the Democratic organization, help to ex plain the present situation. Because of this situation The Charter Commission has selected and endorsed seven candidates who believe that good government cannot continue if the slot machine and policy rackets are allowed to operate, and who are pledged to and enthusiastically endorse the following platform. All are well qualified—by integrity and through civic, professional or business experience—to help guide the affairs of the city. If you believe in the things we stand for and they stand for, we urge you to vote—in the order of your pref erence—for ALL SEVEN. THE CHARTER TICKET PLATFORM 1. Continuation of the policy of employing a capable, professional city manager without political ties or other entangling alliances. 2. Continuation of the successful ownership and opera tion of our public utilities. 3. Continued operation of the city on an efficient, non political basis, without spoils or patronage in any form. 4.
