tween Influenza and tuberculosis was
recently made by Sir Arthur News

English public health service, in his
analysis of the tuberculosis death rate
In England.
In order that the people of the Unit

of other countries Surgeon General
Kupert Blue of the United State* Pub
lic Health Service has Just Issued a
warning emphasizing the need of spe
cial precautions at the present time.
"Experience seems to Indicate," says
the Surgeon General, "that persons
whose resistance has been weakened
by an attack of influenza are peculiar
ly susceptible to tuberculosis,

sons ln each state despite the fact that
most of the states have made the dis

where reporting has been in force for
jnany years, over 35,000 cases of tu

partment of Health. Those familiar
With the situation believe that the ad
dition of unrecognized and unreported
cases would make the number nearer

years in Framingham, Mass., revealed
gOO cases of tuberculosis In a popula

In his statement to the public Sur
geon General Blue points out how
those who have had Influenza should
protect themselves against tuberculo
8ls. "All who have recovered from In
fiuenza," says the Surgeon General,
"should have their lungs carefully ex
«mined by a competent physician. In
fact, it la desirable to have several ex
aminations made a month apart. Such
examinations cannot be made through
the clothing nor can they be carried
eut ln two or three mlnotea. If the ;
lungs are found to be free from tuber
culosis every effort should be made to
keep them so. Thla can he done by
right living, good food and plenty of
fresh air."
Danger Signa
The Surgeon General warned espe
cially against certain danger signa,
such as "decline" and "colds which
