Tuberculosis Sufferers Are Aided
By Swedish National Sanatorium
Colorado Institution Sells May Flowers
The Swedish National Senator
ium of Englewood. Colorado, came
into being about 46 years ago,
born of a need to care for st'rand
ed and needy tuberculosis suffer
ers, who had come to this area in
search for health. It has never de
viated from its original purpose.
but has continued to serve folks
from all walks in life. Through
the years of its existence it has
continued to expand, and every
modern discovery for the cure of
tuberculosis has been adopted at
the Sanatorium.
The Sanatorium has more pa
tients at the present than it has
ever had at any one time, and the
need for expanded facilities to care
for them is evident. Plans are be
ing made for an extension to the
present Mayflower Pavilion to
meet this need.
About 30 years ago the May—
flower, that had been and is still
being used so extensively in Swe
den in the fight against tubercul
osis, was brought to America by
a group of business men in Prov
idence. R. I. The funds provided
through the sale of the little flow
er go exclusively to the Swedish
National Sanatorium to aid needy
patients. The Mayflower has now
become the emblem of Hope for
tuberculosis sufferers both in this
country and in the bountry of its
birth. Sweden. As the little flower
comes to you again this year, its
message is fresh and new.
Qualifying tuberculosis suflerers
can be assured that through the
funds provided through its distri-g
bution. a welcome awnlts them all
the Swedish National Sanatorium.
Lack of necessary personal funds
to defray the cost is no longer s
barrier between them and their
search for health.

New Secrets (In
German Invasion
Secret documents concerning the
Nazi invasion of Norway may be
brought to light if the Oslo sal
vage company_ “H6vding” finds it
feasible to break up the 10,000-ton
German cruiser “Bluecher.” Lying
at a depth of nearly 400 feet on
the bottom of the Oslo fjord, the
pride of the Nazi navy was sunk
by Norwegian coastal artillery and
torpedoes at the break of dawn
on April 9, 1941.
Salvaging at such a great depth.
presents considerable problems,
but in June “Howling" will send
down divers equipped with special
pressure-proof seel hoods to ex
amine the vessel. It may prove
necessary to blow up the ship with
explosives and then try to hoist
the scrap steel to the surface. If
possible. the divers will attempt
to retrieve intact the Wealth of

at 10.000 tons, but is actually be

However. Norwegian experts sus«

being dismantled by “Howling."
This particular operation won't be
