Thanksgiving Day will mar-k the
beginning of the 28th annual nation
wide Christmas Seal Sale in the in
terest of the warfare against tuber
culosis. The sale in Maryland will
be conducted under the auspices of
the Maryland Tuberculosis Associa
tion. The proceeds will be used for
the support of tuberculosis work in
this State, some of it going toward
the expenses of the clinics conducted
throughout the counties under the
joint auspiges of the State Depart
ment of Health and the State Tuber
culosis Association. Some of it will
go toward special work that is being
done for children who are under
weight, or who have been exposed to
tuberculosis, and some will be used
in educational work to show how the
disease may be warded off, or pre
vented altogether.
Urging everybody to help in the
fight against tuberculosis by buying
the special Christmas seals, Dr. R.
H. Riley, Director of the State De
partment of Health said, “One of the
splendid things about the annual
tuberculosis seal salg is the oppor
tunity it gives everyone of us to have
a part in the fight against that dis
ease. The seals are only a penny
apiece—so that even the children
can help.
“The picture of the tiny red
house against the snowy background
of mountains and trees that you see
on the seal this year,” Dr. Riley
continued, “is a reminder of the
courage and vision of Dr. Edward L.
Trudeau, one of the greatest leaders
this country has had in the warfare
against tuberculosis. He was strick
en with the disease himself, when a
very young man, just at the begin
ning of his medical career. He
went to the Adirondack Mountains—
to die —his friends thought. But
instead of dying, be began to get
better, and slowly regained strength
and health. He never became com
pletely well —the disease was too
far gone for that—but his life was
prolonged for many years of great
“He took up his medical work
again, and taught others, impressing
upon them the benefits of pure, fresh
air, plenty of sunshine, nourishing
food, long hours of rest and sleep,
and careful medical supervision. The
little red cottage in which some of
his first patients were housed, was
the starting point for the kind of
hospital and sanatorium care, now
available all over the country, for
those who are ill with the disease
“ All methods used in the care of
those who develop tuberculosis have
a two-fold purpose. First, care of
those who are ill, with methods of
treatment that will help arrest the
progress of the disease and bring
back health; second, the prevention
of the spread of the disease to others.
“The money raised by the sale of
the Chirstmas seals is used largely
for PREVENTION. When we re
call the courage and heroism of the
leaders —like Dr. Trudeau — in the
fight against tuberculosis, we realize
that it is a great privilege to do our
part against it.
“The tuberculosis seals give us
this chance. Let’s do our utmost.”
