More Than Four Thousand
Persons Treated In Dis?
pensaries of Four
Itiohmond, Vn., Oct. HO,
Virginia has recently passed
through an epoch in its public
health work and health officers
are rubbing their eyes to con?
vince themselves that the re?
port ol Assistant Commissioner
Allen W. Freeman can be true
when be stated that in four
mountain counties of Virginia,
two hookworm inspectors ex?
amined more than twelve thous?
and persons f o r hookworm
disease and treated more than
four thousand who were found
to be infected.
These startling lignres, how
ever, are borne out in the Offi
oial quarterly report of Dr.
Freeman, which covers the op?
eration of hookwoorm dispon-l
saries in the counties of Bed?
ford, Franklin, Henry and Pat
rick during the past three
months. Carefully checking
up every patient's record. Dr.
Freeman finds that the state's
agents examined mioroscopi- 1
cully specimens from 12,301
persons and gave treatment to
4,134 infected persons.
In some of the counties, roc
lords have been made which ox
Iceed the fondest dreams of:
heulth oflicors. Crowds ap-!
poured daily at the dispensa- j
ries, entire families came fori
treatment, winde neighbor-|
hoods adjourned to consul I the
physician in charge. At Buf-|
falo Itidge, Patrick County,
during the course of a single
day, 430 persons came for ex?
amination and all were given
full attention before the dispen?
sary closed. This sets a new
standard in Virginia and is re?
garded as the largest single
day's work ever done by a sin?
gle inspector in the South.
The percentage of infection
disclosed by thesdexaminations
is also arousing much interest
in public health circles While
the State Board of Health has
never encouraged the view,
there has been a belief that
Virginia did not face us Berious
a problem in dealing with the
hookworm us did some of the
other Southern States. "It is
quite true," said Dr. Freman
yesterday, when asked for in?
formation on this point, that
we are not as heavily infected
us North Carolina and certain
sections of the fur south, yet
the dispensary records disclose
very serious conditions.
In Patrick county, for ex
ample, our inspector examined
:i,770 porsons and found 1,000 to
Uo infected. This is 44.il of the
total number examined. Of
course, n majority of those who
were examined suspected that
they hud the disease and, in
consequence ligures based on
these examinations will not in?
dicate the true infection of the
county. Yet the record is by
no means reassuring. In many
counties of the State we must
conduct an extensive and de?
tailed campaign if we are to
treat all thdSO infected."
"Kven when we have treated
'every positive case, "Dr. Free?
man continued,*' the problem
is not solved, for those who do
not take precautions are almost
certain to become reinfected.
The real solution of the hook?
worm problem lies in prevent?
ing soil pollution, Not until
all the people erect and con?
sistently use sanitary outbuild-'
ings can wo hope to rid Virgin?
ia of this distressing scourge."
The State Board of Health is
loud in its praises of Drs. \V. |
A. BrumficTd and It. K. Millor,
who were in charge of the ills
pensarios in these fourcounties.
Excelling all records previously
made in Virginia, these inspec?
tors often worked twelve hoursI
ajday to oxamiho the multitudes
that came for treatment. "We
are proud of the rucord made
by Drs. Brumfiold and Miller,"
said Dr. Freeman, ami we feel'
that they have performed a
very great public mtv ice.
Their work was most exacting,
ami t lit-conditions of their la-j
hor were hard, hut they made
a notable success where failure
would have been OXCUSablo.
Dr. Miller will open a dispen?
sary soon in Caroline County j
and Dr. Brumllold is preparing
for work in Die extrem.- South?
western counties."
In view of lie- discussion'
among our people as to whether
or not bonds should he voted in
