the proposed route Saturday from Colonial

lompulsory Removal of Patients
Advocate as a Preventive
The necessity for further municipal conrol
of tuberculosis was brought out at
n experience meeting held Monday
vening at the rooms of the Association
or the Prevent ion of Tuberculosis, n
ook, however, the form of a symposium
n the topic: "The Spread of Infection
ti Tuberculous Families."
Amonp those who participated in the
iseusslon were Dr. A. L. Murray of the
lealtli department, Dr. \V. T. Tewkslury,
superintendent of the Municipal
'uliereulosis Hospital; Dr. Charles A.
'fender of the Children's Hospital, Miss
sabel L. Strong, superintendent of the
nstructive Visiting Nurse Society; Mrs.
million Kd wards, Miss Olive Cordon and
liss M. H. Pierson. special visiting
lurses to tuberculous lainllies.
Contracted in Childhood..
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. The fine spray produced by such
:oughing on the part of an active case

also passage of the bill foiv the compulsory
