Transferring the Industry from a

however, because factories do not hate

most of the states have made the dis

Where reporting has neun in force for
many years, over 115,000 cases of tu
hereulosls are registered with the Je-
partment of Health. Those familiar
with the situation believe that the ad
dition of unrecognized aud unreported
cases would make the number nearer
50,000. The very caroful health sur
1 vey conducted during tho past two
years in Frainlngham, Mass., revealed
j 200 cases of tuberculosis in a popula-
I tlon of approximately 15,000. If these
proportions hold true for the United
! States as a whole they would Indicate
that about one In every hundred per
sous is tuberculous.. Each of these
constitutes a source of danger to be
