Southern Baptists Wage Vigorous Warfare
Against Tuberculosis In This Section

—— i ..... . i ——————————————————
In or.e of the mo3t extensive fights
that has ever been made by any re
ligious body in America for the eradi
cation of disease, Southern Baptists,
through their Home Mission Board,
have undertaken the task of combat
ing tuberculosis in the 18 states com
prising the territory of the Southern
Baptist Convention. The first step in
this direction was the recent estab
lishment on a tract of 143 acres at El
Paso, Texas, of the Southern Bap
tist Sanatorium, where $500,000 from
the 75 Million Campaign has been in
vested and where $500,000 more will
be placed by the end of the Campaign
period. The institution is located at
an altitude of 4,500 feet on the side of
Mt. Franklin and commands an excel
lent view of the mountains of New
Mexico, Western Texas and Old
Mexico, whose border is only six miles
distant. Dr. H. F. Vermillion is super
lnt endent.
Included in this plant at present are
the administration building, the newly
completed women’s infirmary and
men’s infirmary, a heating and re
frigerating plant and the superintend
ent’s quarters. Provided for in the
building plans for the future are a
medical and educational building,
nurses’ home. children's building,
dormitories for convalescent patients,
an occupational and vocational therapy
building, chapel, laundry and minor

London.—From Nairobi, East Africa,

desperate bid for victory by putting
both hands into the animal’s mouth
and gripping its tongue.
Africa Is a paradise for the lion
hunter and the literuture of the chase
iis almost endless. Not all lion
hunters are strictly truthful, however.
“For instance, in a remote African
village,” says the writer, “I once came
across a deeply tanned prospector
hunter, who swore that his favorite
method of hunting lions was to get the
animals to sneeze themselves to death.

57,782. The death rate from tuber
culosis is 14.2% higher in the South
than in the Nation as a whole. One
reason for the exceedingly high death
rate in the South is the great preva

culosis, tho death rate among them
being three and one-half times that
among the whites. But inasmuch as
the negroes will doubtless continue to
be intimately associated with the

safe from infection until the negroes,

Selous was particularly anxious to
secure a specimen of the East African
black-maned lion, but on the whole
trip he never even got a shot at 6ne.
Put Theodore Roosevelt got three and
traded tuberculosis, the sanatorium Is ■
carrying on an educational work that
seeks- to inform the public at large
through the printed page, as to the
danger of tuberculosis, how it can be
avoided and how, once it is con-
I traded, its progress can be arrested
through proper sanitary measures at
home. Other phases of the educa
tional program include the training
of workers inside the sanatorium and
occupational and vocational work for
patients. The extension department
is widely disseminating literature on
how to combat tuberculosis. An en
dowment fund that is being created
• for the institution will make possible
a much larger circulation of literature
and also enable the institution to
take care of indigent patients.
The sanatorium is at present seek
ing to devise special plans whereby
i it can serve the negroes of the South
in combating tuberculosis. It is felt
, that the negroes' inability to help
themselves in the matter entitles them
i to this conside&rtkm and that this
assistance should bo given, further
. more, as a means of self-protection on
the part of the whites.
Other Phases of Baptist Work.
In addition to the Tuberculosis
i Sanatorium, Southern Baptists have a
string of seventeen regular hospitals
, in operation and seven others under
course of construction. This hospital
property is valued at approximately
| $7,000,000 and those institutions last
. year t rooted 46,000 patients many of
them boing charity cases. Southern Bap

which approximately 5,000 orphan boys

This little bit of advice may help
you regain your Health,
Strength and Vitality
Thousands of people suffer from nervous
ness. They are run down and miserable without
knowing the reason why.
They do not stop to think that much of their
trouble may be caused by drinking tea and coffee
which contain the drugs, thein and caffeine. When
you over-stimulate the system for any period of
time, the result may be nervousness with its
many accompanying ills. You may fail to sleep
properly and your sleep does not refresh you as
it should.
Postum, made from scientifically roasted
cereals, will help you to overcome all these
conditions. For it contains only healthful sub
stances, instead of drugs, as are found in tea
and coffee.
Postum helps build sound nerve structure,
by letting you get sound, restful sleep.
In flavor, Postum is much like high-grade
coffee. In fact there are many people who pre
fer Postum for its savory flavor alone.
Order Postum from your grocer today.
Serve this rich, fragrant beverage for the family.
See how the children will like it, and how much
better everybody will sleep at night.
Postum comes in two forms: Instant Postum (in tins)
made instantly in the cup by the addition of boiling water.
Postum Cereal (in packages of larger bulk, for those who
prefer to make the drink while the meal is being prepared)
made by boiling for 20 minutes.
