Clingan, JCounty Health Officer, IDe Queen, Ark. Bear Dr. Clingan: ■ Confirming my conversation Bi th you over the phone today, ) Berewith reduce it to writing: J The State Health Officer of Ok ■lahoma and the County Health ■Officer of Le Flore county advised - me that the only smallpox in the' ■ State of Oklahoma in close prox- 1 l.mity to Arkansas at this time is ■ confined to Le Flore county. In ■conference with these two health •officers in Fort Smith Jan. 9, 1922, J ■it wr agreed that if the Oklahoma authorities would requin* 1 ■JI citizens leaving Le Flore coun-! «y to present a certificate of recent' Bnccination, signed by a legally Bconsed, practicing phjmician of, Bo Flore county, no quarantine l Beetrictions would be issued by the' ■Arkansas health authorities the citizens of Le Flore Mhia conference such an order was Weeued by the Oklahoma health au thorities and notice served on all Bailroads, sheriffs, mayors and bthcr police officials to enforce Such an order. The railroads all immediately complied with the Exception of the Frisco railroad, kdl am today in receipt of a telegram from the Surgeon Gener al, of ths U. S. Public Health Ser 'i'ce. as follows 1 : [ “Washington, D. C.. Jan. 18, ’22 Barrison, Little Rock, Ark. Frisco railroad appropriately in-' Btructed as to vaccination of per ■<ms traveling out of Le Fiori bounty, Oklahoma. President rail rr?d advises company desires to| t'o everything possible to assist in p o’ectin*' public health and will iShsue appropriate instructions ar. i<' vaccination. Cumming.” said health officers further ftr’v r.ed me that every clt’zen Tn Oklahoma, had been vac ■■’■n'cd which means that r.mall- BF ' will very soon be eradicated B(”n that city. the moat severe ’’nt at this time. D i would recommend th'it you. as j f unty Health Officer, publish a that all citizens comming ■hto your- county from Le Flore county, Oklahoma, without a cer tiheate of recent vaccinnt’on will either be subject to immediate woccination or placed under quar antine for a period of fourteen days. This, in my judgment, will ren DE QUEEN BEE der all the safeguards necessary jat the present time. Any attempt on the part of officials of Sevier county to enforce a blanket quar-j | untine against the citizens of Le‘ ’Flore county would entail a con ’ iSiderable cost and necessitate complete inspection of all trains coming into De Queen, requiring! | the conductors to furnish informa .tion as to point of entrainment of, jail persons desiring to detrain at | De Queen. Previous experience' has shown this to be quite cum-- (bersonie and causing great incon j venience to many innocent I travelers and entailing great ex pense to tiie community attempt ing to enforce such an order. 1 I would further recommend that all citizens of your county be vac cinated as an added precaution, as persons exposed to smallpox in j any other section of the country max come through clrcultious routes, develop smallpox and ex pose many citizens. I would fur ther suggest that you call on your County Superintendent of Educa tion to give you an early report on all schools now in session in your county as to whether or not the teachers, employees and pupils have all complied with the state law. Any school not having com plied with this law should be visited immediately and proper .steps taken to enforce same. En- ! | closed is a copy of said law show ng the Supreme Court approval. INo school should bo dismissed on account of . mallpox as vaccina tion furnishes the only reliable eans of cuinbattiir: the disease. Should f inallpo.x occu in any school vicinity, the children not having been successfully vae ;ciliated should be revaccinated as n added precaution. i J presume you have a sanitary [code, but we are sending an extra copy undei separate cover. Sec i Lions 48-52 will give you the au thority to enforce measures for the j protection of your citizen in case lot smallpox. ; It seems that with the present day technique in vaccinating, and j the information at hand as to the 'means 1 of controlling rmallpox, that no community should issue a jquarantine against the disease as every individual can be immunized and thus protected without caus ing the local o»* state government to expend large sums of money land also without blocking the (channels of commerce and caus ing great economic loss to the community quarantined. j Keep me posted as to develop- I merits and let us have your week l.\ morbidity reports promptly each week ns it is only by means of i these reports that we may be ad p t'rd of any unusual outbreak. Yours fraternally, C. W. Garrison, State Health Officer. ANNOUNCEMENT.

C., Jan. HL— ihe Federal Iteuerve Board has brought upon iLself the bitter eri of the Democratic member* of Congress by permitting the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to undertake the construc tion in New York City of a mngni ficient bank building which, when completed and furnished, win cost more than $20,000,000. Such an enormous expenditure of money, it is claimed by the Democrats, is a vicious waste, es pecially in view of the rrotrictionn by the Board of Farm Credita, against which restrictions the t Democrats have protested fer i nearly two yeare. Congressman Otis Wingo, whs has led the fight in this matter tn the house, made the following’ statement on the subject: “Early in 1920 the leaders of th- Republican Congress started .. ys! in itic campaign to restrict th*.- i xtension of credits through |i> • Federal Reserve System to the f .in, t:, of the south and west, b ’der the lead of Congressman ' of Ma: saehuselts, and other Republican leaders from the north d east, tho cry of inflation was vised, and the policy of so-called u< ilatiun wum started that resulted so disadriously to the farmers. 1 protested repeatedly against this viciouw policy, but my protest* were ignored. “The fanners of the nation," continued Mr. Wingo, “are entitled under the Federal Reserve Act to the same credit privileges as manufacturers and other com mm ial interests, and 1 shall con tinue my to see that they receive these deserved benefits. “Instead of spreading the*e ' lions on marble palaces, the fir ds should be used for extend ing much needed credit to the di*- tressed agricultural sections of the country.” I ’dinner party.’ A charming dinner party waa given by Mr. and Mrs. W.
