FRESH AIR IB
HAS FOOLISH IDEAS
Health Officer Suggests
Reasonable Ventilation
For All
IS NOT CONSIDERATE
It is not Necessary to Turn Living
Rooms Into a Miniature Wind Swept
Prarie.
1 In an recent interview, Health Of
ficer, Dr. L. E. Foulks, in discussing
the value of* public health educational
propaganda, said:
"lit -is very unfortunate that many
people have a tendency, to go to ex
tremes in trying to follow out some
simple rule of health. This is very .
aptly illustrated by the actions of
what we may well call the 'fresh-air
fiend.' It an ay sound a little harsh
to call these people fiends, but some
of their work is so deadly and they
insist upon carrying out their fool
ish ideas without the least considera
tion for the comfort, health or rights
of others, that their actions at times
can only 'be looked upon as fiendish.
When we advise a person as to the
importance of fresh -air, we simply
mean in the first place he should go
ouit in the open as much as possible
and thereby obtain not only pure air
under .-natural and normal conditions,
but the sunlight and exercise also,
that naturally go with iit.
In the second place, we mean that
in his place of business and in his
home, he should see thbt proper and
reasonable ventilation is secured. ou
will note that' Ksay 'reasonable"
ventilation in order to differentiate
it from the foolish ^ind unreasonable. ?
Now right here is where our "fresh
pir-fiend" starts 'in with his fool
stunts. The word 'reasonable', is not ,
in hi? vocabulary. He has no idea what ]
it means, and he would not thank you .
if you toM him', either. \
'He igets this fresh arr desire firm- 1
ly fixed in his not too ample mind, :
and he is fully satisfied that it is ]
the one and oavly panacea-'for all hu- ,
man ills, frcm corns to*consumption. ,
He becomes firmly convinced that if
he can only keep himself filled up to
thje muzzle with fi?sh air, he is di
sease-proof, germ-proof and.doubtless
fool-proof! fAnd what is more, he is
going 19 have fresh air at any cost?
that':is *t any cost to others, for you
must remember that our typical
fresh-air-fiend has absolutely no con
sideratioivfoir any person but himself.
Now that is just where the rub
come iin. He will 'enter a room where
yott-afe quietly, peacefully 'and com
fortably resting, and after sniffing
about like a Bulgarian cheese hound
for a few moments, will say: "My,
my, why- you need some fresh air in
here.".-Then he will go tp the win
now and raise the sash, as far a> ...
will -go, letting in a draft of damp.
cMily air on your unprotected per
son. You soon begin to sneeze.
he don't-notice that and says: Thei
don't vou call that fine? Nothing like
plenty of fresh air!" And then^ you
gr\it your teeth and say: "! ? ? ?
etc.
Alt laws and rules are founded on
common sense, hence the fool actio?;
of such r ranks as above described, are
always calculated to do much harm
by turning an otherwise plain, simple
and valuable rule of health, into an
actual menace as well as an absurdity^
In order to get sufficient ventila
tion, it is -not at ?T 1 necessary to
turn our living rooms into miniature
wirid-swept prairie. A room swept
by chilly draft 'of ?ir is a 'hundred
times -more dangerous to health
than a poorly ventilated one.
I might explain Tight here that
many of our old ideas about ven'ti
lation have been sadly upset by re
cent very exhaustive scientific tests
conducted 'by the New ""i ork State
I STOCKHOLDERS meeting
The annual meeting of the stock
holders of the Howard Lumber Com
pany, Incorporated, will be held aK
its principal office, 111 South Fair
fax street* Alexandria, Virginia, at
11 o'clock A.'-M., October 27th,

Commission on Ventilation It has
been fully demonstrated beyond any
question of doubt that an ordinary
sized family in a. room of reason
able size, caanot possibly, reduce the
oxygen con'tejntMoy increase; the car
bon dioxide to such an extertt as will
have any ibad effects upon the oc
cupants. And this without any 'attempt
at special ventilation. There are only
two factors that are harmful under
such conditions* and these are the
temperature and humidity. Hence in
ventilating the Inning rooms of a
house, it is only necessary to do so
to such as extent as will maintain
the proper temperature and t'he nor
mal per cent of humidity. And right
here is the trouble in many houses
during the winter season. The steam
from the kitchen is often permdtted
to penetrate the living rooms and
thereby raise the humidity almost to
the point of saturation', or 100 per
jcenit. 'A sinVplie [indication of high
humidity is the formation of moisture
upon the windows. This high degree
of moisture is not only injurious to
health, but it 'also ruins your furni
ture by soft?ninig the glue and warp-1
ing the woodwork. So remember that j
.heat combined with mbisture are!
the two (iangfrous fr.ctors in a poorly
ventilated room. In other words if by
simple care and reasonable ventila
tion the temperature and humidity
are properly regulated, you need not
worry about there .being too little
oxygen cr too much carbcto dioxide.
The point I wish to make here is
that ventilation, like anything else,
can be carried to extremes, and when
this is done, it Incomes a danger in
place cf a benefit.
If a man wants to sleep in a roon
with snow drifting1 over his bed, ?vhy
by all means left him do so. If can
stand it, all well nni good, but it
don't prove that others can and
should do likewise! You know that
the medicine that will cure the shoe
maker, may kill the carpenter! You
cant give the same does to every
person and expect all to live through
it! How many of us have suffered
from the fresh-air-fiend who boards
the 'train arid takes the vacant seat
just ahead, and promptly raises the
window, no matter how cold th$. day
tniay be. There are few cars on any
railfroad at the present time which
are not reasonably ventilated, but
that fact don't worry our fresh-air
fiend at all. He personally wants air,
and lots of it. and he don't care a'
hang about anybody else. The strong,
direct and chilling draft passes by him
and hits you square in the face. You
can't change .your place, for no va
cant seat is left. So you, along with
the others in the seats 'back of you,
have 'to sHt- andi shiver. It is through
the fool.actions of just such a weak
minded. shallow brained, poor imita
tion of a human being, (that many
people have been sent to premature
graves. Such a person as that needs
the prompt attention of the fool
killer, .and he needs Trim quick.
BARS TEUTON DELEGATES
Secretary Wilson's Ruling Closes
Conference To Them
Washington, Oct. 22.?Under Secre
tary of Labor Wilson's interpretation
of the treaty, voting in the forthcom
ing International Labor Conference
writ be confined to those delegates
representing only the nations men
tioned in the annex of the League of
Nations covenant, it was declared in
a statement by the Secretary made
public yesterday. This interpretation
would bar Gorman and Austrian dele
gates from voting.
The Secretary's interpretation,
which holds that the United States in
convening and organizing the con
ference has assumed certain obliga
tions which it cannot, permit even the
Supreme Council to abrogate, is in di
rect conflict with the Supreme Coun
cil's own ruling.
As a solution of the difficulty, Sec
retary Wilson suggests that an in
formal conference be called for dis
cussion of subjects by all delegates,
provided final determination was left
to the members proper.

C. S. Clark, executive secretary of
the Third Red Cross Roll Call at Na
tional Headquarters, Washington, T).
C. delivered in part the fol'-wing
address:
The greatest organization of Mercy
the world has ever known is stand
ing waiting for something to do and
something to do it with. The Ameri
can Red Cross, that during the Nine
teen months of itho war enrolled over
twenty million adult Americans in its
membership, gathered and spent more
than four hundred million- dollars,
created articles of necessity and com
fort valued o- one hundre-J million
more; is standing on the threshold of
its next chapter of activity. With
the coming of the third Red Cross
V. \\ Call, whi-h is ?/? celebrate the
j;i!-irCTsavy of '.he sigi. ing of the
arm.fdice, an* will ck-M T>n Nov
el irr Ht.': ih- lied Cross expects
-e-enroll it* rren.he'*.-.:'; t< enlist
million? mve; in) to sc a
fund of Fifteen Million Dollars with
which to close up its war work and
begin the activities of its recon-truc
tion campaign.
When the armistice was signed
everybody made up "their minds that
the war was over, and after a few
hours of hysterical and' emotional
celebration everybody prepared to get
out and to get down to normal peace
t:m?e activity. It was -.supposed by
thoughtless observers that wartime
machinery would immediately be
trashed-. The peculiar thing was that
when it came to the American Red
Cross it simply refused to be trashed.
In spite of the relaxation that fol
lowed the armistice; tn spite of the
ten-fold more debilitating influence of
an epidemic of influenza that shut
down half the country and made im
possible any propaganda work, ot in
deed any public meetings; in spite
of it all', 19,948,920 adult American5
deliberately walked up and enrolled
themselves as members of the Red
Cross.
This membership of course is an an
nual one. It must be renewed from
year to year, or the Red Cross as a
going organization would cease to ex
ist. save at the hands of a few hun
dred permanent members made so by
generous gifts in the past. Thcie will
be no tremble about the enrollment.
Not only our present membership,
but hundreds of thousands more are
waiting, eager to be shown wmt
there is to do, and as eager to do it.
