April 30 has been set aside this year

served ln 200,000 churches ln the
country ln a manner similar to that
of "Tuberculosis Sunday" ln 1910,
when 40,000 sermons were preached
on the prevention of tuberculosis. In
the first official announcement of the
occasion, made by the National Asso

of Tuberculosis, the leaders of the
movement state that they hope to en

Instead of requesting the
churches to give to the tuberculosis
cause a special Sunday service, the
national association Is going to ask
this year that meetings, at which the
subject of tuberculosis and its pre
ventlon can be discussed, be held on
Sunday, April 30, or on any other day
near that date, either In the week
preceding or the week following.
"What we want," says Mr. Living
ston Farrand, executive secretary of
the National Association for the Study
and Prevention of Tuberculosis, in a
elation for the study and prevention
report on this movement, "Is to have
this whole subject of tuberculosis dis
cussed In all of the 200,000 churches
of the United States at as nearly the
