Tuberculosis, Infant Welfare and
School Health Work Featured
During Year.
Three special features in the public
health field have been carried through
out the year Just past, namely tuber
culosis work, infant welfare work, and
school work.
In the tuberculosis field very desir
able results have been attained. At
present the record is as follows. Ac
tive cases, 89 Suspected cases, 33 Ar
rested cases, 58 Died during the year,
17 Moved away, 7 Became arrested
cases, 7 New cases, 20.
For the previous year there were 100
active cases, 36 suspects, and 40 arrest
ed cases. During the past five years
there were lMf&eaths as compared with
117 of the former Tecord.
Since Marshall county has been ac
tive in local tuberculosis work, whuh
was begun in 1911 when the local health
association was organized as the-Mar
shall County Anti-tuberculosis Associa
tion, there seems to have been a grow
ing impression that there was more
tuberculosis here than in other like
communities. In order to enlighten
those believing &uch to be the case, two
posters have been prepared, one exhibit-
w&Ffta^^^#^Hif4Tte situation. The^e posters sho\v that the
death-rate of the county lias beeu con
siderablj lowered, and that it is some
what lower than that of the state.
Education Work
Since educational work was first be
gun in the county, 52 Hves have been
saved. This record is based on the de
crease in the death-rate. And since a
life is valued at $5,000, the savuijf of
52 lives means a financial saving- of
$260,000 during the past eight years, or
of $32,500 annually during that time
Our death-rate has been lowered, lives
have been saved, but since tuberculosis
is a preventable disease, any death-rate
-is too great for anv county
The tuberculosa ca^es at the present
time are distributed as follows: Oak
land Park Sanatorium, 9 Sunnyrest,
Crookston, 2 State Sanatorium, Walk

Five clinics were held during the
year for the purpose of detecting new

general educational purposes. These

Warren High School Basket Ball Team
Is Eliminated In Opening
Contest By Ada.
Fosston won the basket ball cham
pionship of this district at the tourney
held at Crookston last Thursday and
Friday. Warren lost its game to Ada
on Thursday, by an 18 to 14 score, and
was therefore eliminated the first day.
The game between Warren and Ada
was the fastest contest of the tourney
as both steams were evenly matched.
Warren displayed the best teamwork
of the two quints^ At the end of the
first quarter Warren led by a score of
4 to 8. The half resulted in a score of
8 and 8. At the end of the third quar
ter the score was 13 and 13. The last
quarter was the*downfall of the locals,
Ada making two field baskets and a free
throw while Warren made but a free
throw. The game ended with Ada 18,
Warren 14.
This game was the last one played
Thursday evening and evidently if it
could have been one of the first games
played the score would have been dif
ferent, as the Warren quint showed
much better teamwork but luck was
against them in basket shooting. Ada,
on the other hand, made a great many
of their^shots with luck in their favor.
Swandby Leads Scoring
Swandby led both teams in shooting
baskets* making four. Lindstrand
made one and Warner also made one
Swandby also made two free throws.
The Warren boys who played were as
follows. Swandby, Lindstrand, Melgard,
Warner and Hanson. Mattson went in
for Lindstrand in the last quarter on
account of four personal fouls being
called on the latter. Campion also
went down with the team but was not
used in the game.
Fosston and Thief River Falls play
ed the first game of the evening and
Fosston won. by a score of 36 to 16.
The second game was played by Fer-

was th claim made E Potter
president of the -Minnesota Farm
Bureau Federation, at the annual
meeting of the Marchall County" F*rm
Bureau association held in the court
room of the county court house yester
day. Mr. Jotter was the principal
speaker of the day and had many IIK,
teresting things to say concerning the
work of* the state federation. Directors
and bureau members from all parts of
the county were present.
Business sessions and an interesting
talk by F. E. Balmer, head of the
county agents of the state, constituted
the morning meeting at the court"
house. Mr Balmer suggested an out
line for Marshall county farm bureaus
to work from during the coming year.
Some of the matters he suggested
might be taken up and considered by
the members were: What is the chief
source of income? What factors are
hurting still greater returns from this
source? What can the farm bureau do
to remedy the limitations? Establish
ment of a goal for 1921. The work to
be done Dy the farm bureau for the
obtaining of these results.
Sources of Income
The speaker enumerated a list of co
operative measures which would bring
the desired results and brought out
many interesting factors of general
help along these lines. In the discus
sion it was brought out that the chief
source of income in eastern Marshall
county is considered as dairying while
in the western part of the county small
grams are considered, as yet, the chief
source of income.
At the afternoon meeting M. L.
Warner, secretary-treasurer of the
Marshall County Farm Bureau associa
tion, reported the work of the morn
ing meeting and explained the system
and disposal of the membership fees

and girls' club leader, spoke on the
work that the boys and girls of the
state are doing in the club work where
the clubs are organized and the work
is conducted under the direction of a
leader lie urged that Marshall county
take up this work, citing the very fa
vorable results being obtained in the
counties of the state where the work
is carried on under leadership. He
suggested the securing of a man to lead
in the work ui Marshall county and
told of the interest the work already
manifested in the county.
In a long and interesting talk Mr.
Potter covered a multitude of subjects
pertamnig to the farm bureau work
and what is being done for the benefit
of the farmers throughout the state
in the state legislature and in other
way^. He urged good livestock and
the sowing of fewer acres and the rais
ing of more per acre. He urged clover,
pasture and livestock in addition to
small grain crops in order to get a
larger return from the land. He claim
ed that there is not one quarter of the
cows in the state paying for them
selves because of their inferior grade
and imoroper feeding and livine condi
tions. He said that it is a poor idea
to give a well bred animal into the
hands, of a scrub man "and that this
was the chief cause of poor results in
dairving in the state
Bureau is Big Need
In regard to the farm bureau" he
claimed that a business organization
for the farmers Is the big need of to
day. "We believe in the open shop",
was the statement the bureau president

of the business men of the towns and
