Public Health Service es timates that.33,000 cases of trachoma exis in the mountain section of Ken tcuky alone.. Seven counties, In 1912 showed 12 per cent of the popula tion to' be suffering from fthis com municable eye disease, formerly coin sldered as a foreign ailment not ex isting in the United States. This dis covery led the Public Health Service to make further studies of. the pre valence of the 'disease and' in a recent survey of twenty-three counlies, IS.- ,016 persons were examined of; whom 1,280 or over 7 per cent, were found afflicted with this mutilating eye dis ease. In some of these counties the percentage found infected was, as high as 26.4 per cent while in others it . fell to 3 per cent. The majority of those examined were school ; chil dren and the findings' may he taken as representing fairly accurately con ditions among adults.' Almost all of those examined were whites, as the negro population is very small in the mountain section of Kentucky. In asmuch as the bulk of the population in these counties comes from old American stock, foreign immigration cannot 'be blamed for the prevalence of the disease. The U. 6. '. Public Health Service - regards its . estimate of 33,000 cases in 35 mountain coun ties aa conservative, . though , approxi mate, and has established hospitals at various points for the treatment of the disease and the education -of the general public . as to the means of its , prevention. Trachoma un doubtedly .exists in many other places In this country. It is ceralnly wide spread among the Indian tribes and the Public Health Service is endeav oring to eradicate the . disease and prevent its spread. - - The .Ric;& Hutchins building ' In Boston "was destroyed by. lire at a loss of $JioO,000.

IXP ' Two views are held among schooi teachers and superintendents, as to what ehall be done with pupils that fail to keep up. The old time teacher was rather -inclined -to pass -them along. The student, it was argued, would Idse interest; if compelled to drop 'back into- another class. He had probably got all that can be had out of that grade or stage of work.- He will get more to let him so on than to make him grind over the same work again. A few yeans ago there was a wide spread impression that a good ath lete could slip along through almost any college. : Of recent years, both in colleges and High schools, there seems to flbe a stricter feeling about scholarship requirements for ' ath letes. : " ' ' , That many of the colleges are now imposing : severe tests wa? suggested by the news reports of the past week, to the effect that at' Cornell univers ity. 14 4 men have been dropped as the result of the mid-year "exams."
