the diligence of its state board of
health will, I am sure, be one of the
first to show a mortality almost nil
from this disease.
Hits N. D. Legislature.
"Our state board of health made an
effort to secure an appropriation to
equip and maintain an anti-tubercu
losis crusade and although it was de
nied them by the legislature, the sec
retary, with the assistance of the di
rectors of the state bacteriological
and pathological laboratory, Dr. Rudi
gc-r, has nevertheless about completed
these pfe^arations and planned a most
thorough and efficient campaign
through the state.
"To further and promote state leg
islation and appropriation and to as
sist the state board of health in car
rying on its work unhampered for
financia-l reasons, it has become neces
sary that we realize our position and
mediocre influence in such matters,
before the legislative bodies sitting at
Bismarck. Your present committee
has not met with the success they had
hoped, not because of their inactivity
or inefficiency, but from the fact that
legislators like the great majority of
the laity look upon medical legislation
from a commercial standpoint and
through their lack of education and
appreciation of nur work are "too prone
to la"bel Our demands with tbe stamp
of personal greed or gain.
Sterilization of Criminal*.
"One of the most important legis
lative acts which is focusing the at
tention of intelligent people every
where, is the sterilisation of defectives
and habitual criminals as a necessary
measure of social economy. Statisi
tics show that the mentally defective
classes, natural criminals. Imbeciles,
insane and epileptics, have multiplied
in the last thirty years more than
twice as fast as the total population."
Dr. Beaudoux then quoted a lot of
important statistics to show the in
crease in criminals throughout the
United States during the eight year
period of 1899-1906.
"Legislation forbidding the marriage
of first cousins or those of close corti
gangutnity should also" be IrteluAed Itt
the same legislation owing to' the
fact that statistics show that tfri'ch
marriages result in a large cent
of feeble-minded children, etc.**
N. D. Medical Journal.
..One of the most important sugges
tions made by Dr. Beaudoux was a
recommendation that a committee of
five be appointed to outline the organi
zation of a North Dakota Medical
Journal at this meeting.
