County Surveyor Hen- ry Crocker has been authorized to ma?te any "necessary measurements and such tentative agreements as are possible for rights of way, and will submit estimates to the board of supervisors at a called j meeting.

They then considered locating the walk on Washing- * ton street and Alexandria avenue. This fl route would rim fromJColonial to Pieckett's i corner along the existing path, just as the e other proposed route docs; but front Pica- r ett's the walk, under the second proposal, will run across the Boston road, follow Westmoreland street one block to Alex- ^ andrla avenue, where it will turn west s and follow Alexandria avenue to Arling- v ton street at WT A.

The point especially emphasized in the liscussion was the necessity for securing . law for the compulsory removal of latients who refuse to observe rules of tygicne. Many cases were cited where he disease is contracted because of I he efusal of the patient either to go to the lospital or to observe ordinary rules of rotection in the home. The danger of he infection of children wpo are paricularly susceptible to the disease was nentioned by several of the speakers. Atention was called to the conclusions of nvestlgators whose findings are generally iccepted, namely, that the disease is ilniost invariably contracted in childlood; that where the bodily resistance s good the germs remain latent, but where the environment is unfavorable the ,rerms are likely to become active, the noral being that everybody should pracice proper rules of hygiene in order to reep the body resistance strong. A common cause of infection in the tome, which in the opinion of many of he speakers does not receive sufficient Lttention, is the habit of coughing or neezing without protecting the mouth or ?ose by holding a hapdke chief in front >f it.
