A KISS FOR HIS BRIDE
i ,
Dan Topping, wealthy New York sportsman, is shown here kissing
his bride, the former Sonja Henie ice skating and film star after
their marriage on Chicago’s fashionable gold coast. While their
names had been inked romantically for more six months, Topping
and Miss Henie became engaged about a week ago.
Written by a prominent, well known Alaska mining engin
eer May 31st, 1940, quote "During the period of 1934 to 1940
Macmillian Lubricating Oils have been used for our diesel
j engines gasoline engines and bearing lubrications. In all this
time there has been no stuck piston rings, no deposits of
hard carbon around valves or exhaust ports and no evidence
of gumming or sludging.” Can you afford to delay investigat
ing this wonderful oil? See —

SPECIAL MEETING OF
HEALTH COUNCIL
On Friday, July 5, Chairman
Henry G. Miller called a special
meeting of the Nome Health
Council. Special guests for* the
evening were Dr, Courtney
Smith, Assistant C mmissioner
of Health in Alaska and Dr. Carl
E. Buck, Field Director of the
American Public Health Associa
tion of New York. Dr. Buck came
to the Territory at the request of
Dr. Council and that of Surgeon
General Parran to make a study
of health conditions and health
facilities with the view of mak
ing recommendations for neces
sary health legislation.
After the reading of the min
utes of the previous meeting by
the secretary, Lorene Hagen, Dr.
Smith expressed appreciation for
the opportunity to meet the peo
ple in Nome. He stated that he
hoped those present would give
their opinions of the public
health problems and needs of
Nome and the Territory in gen
eral.
Dr. Buck spoke saying that he
wished the meeting to be kept in
formal and that everyone would
feel free to ask questions and
give information about things in
this community with which he
was not familiar. He pointed out
that information and recommend
ations for he present progress of
public heath protection both in
the Territory and in local living,
and recommendations for need
ed health legislation was want
ed.
Some of the public health
needs mentioned by those attend
ing the meeting were improved
sanitary conditions, proper care
and isolation of cases of tuber
cuosis outside the home, malnu
trition among the lower econom
ic group and the probability of
dental caries being caused by the
lack of a balanced diet. Although
in many places expectant moth
ers become negligent in seeking
regular medical care before and
after the child is born, Nome
does very well. Child Heath Con
ferences which afford medical
supervision of well infants and
preschool children are well at
tended. Syphillis was mentioned
as a public health problem and
Dr. Morcom stated that the ra
tio of Syphilis in the white pop
ulation here is very low altho
it shows more among the native
group.
All known cases are being treat
ed regularly. Dr. Buck said that
tuberculosis is a problem of real
concern. It is not solely a prob
lem of finances as it is the fact
that there is no place to put the
patients—a lack of hospital beds.
The program for legislation
which has been prepared con
sists of terms to place the Terri
toria Department of Health on a
legal basis giving it authority to
act and funds to take care of its
principal business. The rules and
regulations of the Department
would then have to be enforced
and would be so arranged that
they would appy to t'he whole
Territory and that the local or
dinances of any town could be
more strict but not less so than
the Territorial laws.
Another provision is to provide
for a hospital of about 700 beds,
built on a pavilion plan, to care
for tuberculosis patients, crippled
children, and mental cases. This
would take care of all the cases
that at the present time we are
forced to send to the States. With
a hospital of sufficient size, the
proper specialists could be had.
Several locations have been sug
gested, Haines, Anchorage, and
the Matanuska Valley.
Dr. Buck informed the Health
Council that revised editions of
the proposed legisation will be
sent as soon as they are complet
ed. He asked that the Health
Council as one of their projects
make all citizens of Nome famil
iar with the contents which are
of vital interest to all.

MAJOR GAFFNEY FLIES
“BLIND” TO ANCHORAGE
Alaska’s first long-range "blind
flight” was in the Fairbanks’ avia
tion log book last week.
Major Dale V. Gaffney, com
manding officer of the Ladd Field
Air Corps Station near Fair
banks, returned to the city’s air
port about midnight last Tuesday
night after having completed a
flight to Anchorage navigating
by instruments only.
The major was accompanied on
the flight by Lieutenant Marvin
E. Walseth of the Air Corps. The
"under the hood” trip provided
an authentic orientation test also
for the Summit and Anchorage
radio range stations. Major Gaff
ney “flew the beam" to Summit,
then bore over to Anchorage on
the signal emanated by the Civil
Aeronautics Authority’s range
station there.
The “beam-line” routs between
Fairbanks and Anchorage was a
two hour 45 minute flight for the
air corps men, cruising easily in
an army observer. j
