In some of the states of the Union nearly one-flflh of the deaths caused by preventable diseases during the tirst six months of this year resulted from the dread disease tuberculosis, not- i withstanding the epidemic of influenza that swept over this country during the early months, lduho had its full , portion of mortality from that cause During the past few years hundreds of I citizens of the Gem state have fallen j vlotims of tuberculosis and the situa- i tlon is worse now than ever before, being augmented by Influenza. And severe as was the epidemic, in - ! fluenza caused but a little less than : twice as many deaths the first half of this year in most sections of the United I States as did the "great while plague." i Officials everywhere are emphasizing tills appalling fact in urging whole- ! hearted support by the citizens of the , annual Christmas Seal sale, the pur- I pose of which, in the main, is to raise funds with which to light tuberculosis. ■ indeed a very humanitarian purpose. . and there should be generous response to the appeal among the people in every walk of life. Funds raised through the sale of millions pf seals to be offered the Public as a bealtli investment this fall will be used during the coming year, not only to fight tuberculosis, but oth er preventable diseases as well. Ida ho's allotment of the 88,500,000 fund to be raised throughout the nation in the campaign headed by the Na tional Tuberculosis association is not large and I am sure the state will make a very gratifying showing. It may be assumed that the general public does not fully realize the men ace of tuberculosis because the dis ease is not surrounded by so many dramatic features as was the Influ enza epidemic which was given such very general publicity. The people must be brought to re alize that tuberculosis la not only one of the greatest enemies of tha human race but that it can be prevented "and can be cured, If treatment la not too long delayed. Tlie campaign agalnat tuberculoais well as other preventable diseases .mist be carried Into every county In Idaho next year but only by generous purchase of Christmas Seals can It ba none, at least In a manner that tha situation demands.

She has been visiting rural schools, parent teacher associations and pupils' homes in company with County Superinten dent Payne. The value of the public health nurse's visits to the schools lies in her search, not for sick children, but lor those with remediable physical de fects. There are always many children in school, the nurse explains, who es enpe tha physician's attentions, but who have defective tooth, enlarged tonails or pdenolda, who suffer from malnutrition and are generally back ward. Preventive and corrective work among these restores them to normal and raises thq, scholarship average. MR8. FALK ILL.
