is regarded' a& the more important, for

of a large numberXof liberal members
who are determined to not only bring
an 'end to executions In Irelam but to

GIVES $100,000 TO
Metropolitan Life Insurance Company
Makes Cash Donation to National
Society—To Conduct Community Ex
Washington, May 11.—Announcement
was made of a gift of $100,000 to the
National Association For the Study
and Prevention of Tuberculosis by Dr.
E. R. Baldwin, president of that body,
at its opening session today. The gift
is from the Metropolitan Life. Insur
ance Company and is given for the
purpose of demonstrating by a com
munity experiment for three years that
tuberculosis can be controlled just the
same as any other Infectious disease if
right methods and adequate resources
re available. It la planned to select a
own or city of about. &,0W> inhabitants»
pro.bably.to "New York or Massachusetts
an d" to apply there' all-o^ the k*owled*e
on the treatment and prevention of tu
berculosis available, with a view to the
ultimate eradication of the diMgse. If
•the national association can demon
strate that tuberculosis can be con
trolled In one community, it will start
a campaign to apply this knowledge to
every city and town in the United
Dr. Baldwin also emphasized the
most significant developments in the
anti-tuberculosis field during the past
"In our educational campaign," he
said, "we are applying more Intensive
methods of group education in schools,
churches, lodges, labor union?and even
among physicians and nurses.
"The last year has aUo witnessed
'"some significant administrative devel
opments. The decided movement in the
direction of standardization of methods
of work Is highly commendable. The
Interest taken in the interstate or fed
eral relation to the tuberculosis prob
lem is most significant. Research, both
into the medical and social causes of
tuberculosis, is being emphasized anew.
The national association must answer
many Important questions before it can
go much farther with its work. More
research is needed to do this. It Is
gratifying to note the ever-increasing

public funds expended in tuberculosis
has increased from 25 to 65 per cent,
indicating that the communities are
more and more realizing their responsi
