HEALTH DEPARTMENT TO CON iDUCT RE-SURVEYS OF COUNTIES Louisville, Ky., July 24. The services of Dr. Marshall J. Thomp son, of Baltimore, have been loaned by the International Health Board to the State Board of Health to coop- crate in conducting a aeries of re- survey of counties which showed a high percentage of hookworm disease in the original survey made between 1910 and 1916. These resurveys are to be carried on during the summer and early fall. Countiea to be visited include one in eastern, southeastern and western Kentucky. The survey of Laurel county already has been completed, snd a preliminary report shows thst the number of cases in that county ha been reduced 60 percent below 1914 figures. "Thia survey," according to Dr. P. E. Blackerby, Director of tha State Board of Health's Bureau of County Health Work, "with other resurveys in counties that havs all-time health departments. Indicates thst there I a general porgress in sanitary ii rrovements, as it is a well establiin ed fact that hookworm diaeas i tha result of tha pollution of the toil with human discharge.

R, Robertson, Professor as History and Political Science Berea College Germany is reported to be willin to hsve a commission appointed to watch her financial operation. Thi body ia to have free scope to look into everything, but is to hsve n power of control. The object is ap parently to SRSure the allied nation to which Germany owe reparation money that she is acting in good luitn and is managing her finmces with a purpose to pay what she csn. This is a long step in advanco and ought to create better feeling. Sne naa asked for a postponement of money obligation due and this method has been devised to meet the situa tion. The chance of getting loan from other countries grow lea. ni Germany realise she muat plan to make the payments out of her own resources. On July 30. the anniversary f tW beginning of the World War, meet inga will be held in almost every part of the world, to arouse sentiment in favor of outlawing war. In fact th. whole week will be devoted to the cause and attention will be called to various constructive plans to accom plish that end. There is no better way in which this memorial day may be spent It is notable that women are especially interested, as they have a right to be, and their influence will go as fsr toward bringing results as anything can. Suggestion that are practical are certain to receive attention, as the mass of mankind do not want war, but are drawn int it because of inadequate means of ad justing disputes between nations. It is reported, but not officially, that England is considering the matter of cancelling France's debt to her and giving up her share tn German rep arations as an incentive to better in dustrial and financial conditions. Should this be done, it would be an act of great sacrifice and considera ble anxiety is expressed in regard to the effect on England's financial con dition. The cancellation of England's debt by the U. S. is not now expected, and in fact the process of funding the debt so as to make it payable at a future time is well under way. It would be a bold and telling act and would give England a position of lesdership in Europe and secure for her the good will of friends and ene mies alike. There are many objec tions to such an act, and they will be sure to be brought out. Friends of the State of Brazil and of closer and friendlier relations have raised one hundred thousand dollars for the msking of a colossal "Goddess of Friendship" to be presented as a gift to Brazil on the occasion of hor centennial of independence. It fa ex pected that this statue will stand in the harbor of Rio Janeiro as the Statue of Liberty does in New York harbor. At the base of tho statue are four figures, two of the Brazilian heroes of liberty and two Amer'ca'i, Washington and Lincoln. As in tho case of most stctues of this kind, there hss been some criticism, espec ally of the four human figures, and so strong has it become that the figures may be altered or removed entirely. The statue is the work of a noted sculptor and is said to be a fine piece of work. A good deal of interest has been aroused and aome astonishment has been expressed over the purpose of the Archbishop of Canterbury to preach in the church in Geneva where John Calvin and John Knox preached in the days of the reforma tion. This occasion is brought to pass by an invitation of the League of Nations when it meets in Genovi for the third meeting of its assembly. Church of England ministers are generally conservative, but it is good to find that one so high up can be broad and liberal enough to forget the differences of the past and lend his influence to one of the largest snd most diopeful movements of th present and future. Tha League of Nation naturally leads to just such departure from precedent "all along th line. to continue to urge thruout th State that every home (to su.l ml with ( r er facilities for tha disposal of human waste. Tha Kentucky Sanitary Privy and Septic Tank is, of course, rec ommended as th safest mean for rural aewag disposal."
