One of the points which must be token
in consideration is the number of deaths
occurring from unknown causes, that in,
cuseg m which no diagnosis was made
by the physician. Many such deaths
would bo included among other diseases
if the facts were known. It speaks
well then for the medical profession of
Vermont that there were in 1013 only
3.1 deaths per 10(1,000 population put
down as due to "ill -defined or unknown
causes . .New iork leads tlie east on
this item with 1.5, but the other states
show as follows: Massachusetts, 5.7;
Rhode Island, 7.9; Connecticut, 9.5; New
Hampshire, 12.1; Maine, 23.5.
In addition to these facts, it should
also be stated that the Vermont state
board of health has become known
throughout the entire country during the
past year by its methods of dealing with
the scourge of infantile paralysis, and
that it is setting a pace in the study of
this disease which forms an entirely new
epoch in the history of preventative mcd
ieine. While other states had very lit
tle idea of the number of eases of this
disease. Vermont secured a complete clin
ical record of practically every paralyzed
ease, and these have since been supple
mented by charts showing the museles
affected. All of this is being studied
and urranged, so that the valuable data
thereby secured will be available for the

Secretary Charles F. Dalfon of the
. Vermont state bourd of health points out
that Vermont is making rapid strides
in the control of disease, barring canc er,
the "tinkuown disease," and he defends
the general reputation of the state in
the following interview:
Much prominence is being given to
the fact that Vermont in 1913 had the
highest death rate, from cancer of any
state in the registration area. While it
is fitting that jve should take cognizance
of this condition and do everything pos
sible to correct it, the idea should not
be allowed to exist that Vermont has n
bimihir reputation in regard to other dis
eases. Cancer is a disease about which
we know practically nothing as to the
cause, and the only treatment is early
surgery. ,
AVhen the statistics are shown in re
gard to the diseases which depend for
their prevention upon state control and
correct medical treatment, it will be
found that Vermout either leads (he
whole I'nited States or is well to tie

ihere are indications that the heavy
death roll among the American men in
the first cabin was due to a scarcity of
lifebelts, many of them having given
the Jife preservers they had obtained to
helpless women.

that no American man got into a boat

definite it is accepted generally as the
correct version of Mr. Vanderbilt's last
