PUBLICITY URGED FOR TUBERCULOSIS Association Opposes Secrecy Now Surrounding Registrations. Secrecy which now surrounds the registration of tuberculosis patients In the District Health Uftlce, does not make for the best protection ot either the patient or the community, according to tl e sense of a meeting of the dt rcctorn of the Association for the Pre vention of Tuberculosis held last ntght. The directors met at 923 H street northwest, and went on record as favor ing a wider latitude for the health of fice In the use of Us Information touch ing the sufferers from the "White negue.' Tho directors determined to continue their efforts to support the health of tlco In Its request for municipal tuber culoma nurses. In this connection the directors reiterated their position in fuvor of the law for the segregation of careless and negligent tuberoulosls pa tients. Furthermore, it was decided to urge the Commissioners of the District to promulgate the proposed regulation that children suffering from tubercu losis in a communicable form be ex cluded from the regular classes of the public schools, The appointment of a director of school hygiene also was ui eeo. II can readily be seen what value to the cr.ext guard could he given bv a rallied observer,, two. three or four thousand feet In the sir. 1C miles nut (r sea In sformv weather. The saving of one vessel and her cargo would more than par for cost of the entire serv ice. , "But the service would not cost much. In France and Germany before tho F.uronean war more than ll.MO.Ono was railed bv private subscription for tho enlargement and Improvement of the aerial service of the two governments. -t is estimated that .tho total cost of the flflv stations to be estbllhed would be bne-thlrd of that, or $10,000 for each station. . "The only thing that Is needed for he organization of the patrol Is the XlO.ono. The question of gettlns- that In a community like Washington doesn't seem to me to be so serious. Chsrman Winneld Jones of the Chamber of Commerce committee on mllltla. suggested that the preliminary organization bo Immediately formed and that each of those present sub scribe to one share of sfnek In a prospective corporation. This was done. . . . . ., Mr. Jones was then appointed the head or a committee to complete vlnns for a meeting at the Chamber of Com merce to b held next week. Admlrnl I'oorv.

Members of tho association have, pledged themselves not to. support any delegate to tho Republican or Demo-" cratlc national conventions who Is not In favor of suffraga In (ho District.

Mr. Noyes 'and his associates on the commlttco urge upon Congress the adoption of either ono of three methods of establishing th'o 'political status ot residents of the District and giving, to tho citizens or the Capital represen tation In the national legislature. Tho report Indorses and-advocates, first, tho enactment of tho propo-cd Chnmberlaln constitutional amcndiront, which, retaining full nnd excluslvo con trol of tlin nation' city bv tho nation through Congress, for tho purpose ot liatlni.nl representation oniy gives too rolrtpnU nl thn Dlstrlet tho status of c'tlzcns of a State nnd entitled them to Bcuators, Representatives anu rresiaen llnl electors. Should Congress be unwilling ta.gho the District two Senators, tho report proposes ns an alternative, a sudsuiu tlon of the amendment introduced in 18M by foinier Senator Henry W, Blair, glWng tho District one Senator. Finally, should Congress be unwilling to cranl nt this time, directly" through tho Constitution, cither ono or two Sen ators, the commlttco suggests that the Constitution bo amended so as to give Congress the power to grant representa tion when. In Its Judgment, the condi tions entitling to representation shall have been met by the District. M. PHILIPS 1233 Seventh Street N. W. LOCAL MENTION.
