The work of the State association,
which has been coming more and
more into prominence during the past
few years is said to have been very
successful in promoting more con
genial relations among the various

inter-denominational in nature, the as
sociation stresses the need of early ec
clesiastical training and preparation.
The headquarters of the association,
which are at Salisbury, poeaens a (cir

There is always a large demand for
these books by the various religious
workers of the State, it was said, and
the officials are responsive to requests
for these religious treatises. All post

Another Strong Sermon By
Rev. J. W. Davis At
Many people are attending the
South Henderson revival this week to
listen to the splendid sermons de
livered by Rev. J. W. Davis, pastor
of the North Henderson Baptist
church. Rev. L. B. Reavis, who con

7 45, favors the congregation each
evening with a special number which

Other engagements for Anics are al
ready being arranged, However, and
regular visits to these places will be
made, the schedule to be announced
in a few days, so that all who wish to
avail themselves of the treatment may
do so. The health officer estimated
that nearly 2,000 persons had been

it can be if the people will respond
to th eappeal to avail themselves of

Dr. James M. Parrott, of Raleigh,
secretary of the State Board of Health,
and State Health officer, has issued
a warning to the people of the State
‘hat typhoid is more prevalent this
year than for some years, and points
to preventable illness in these times,

The following statement was made
by Dr. Parrott:
Dr. J. M. Parrott, State health of
ficer, has just issued a statement say

In fact, typhoid fever is increasing
so rapidly and In such widely dis
tributed sections that the State De
ipartment of Health is deeply con
cerned over the matter"
"This concrn becomes all the more
great," continues Dr. Parrott, "be
cause the funds of the State Depart
ment are very limited and the pro
blem of tracing out and finding each
case is more than ordinarily a local
one. I earnestly and firmly advise all
people to be vaccinated and consult
their doctors and local health services
concerning the proper sanitation of
their water, milk and food supplies."
This is the first step in finding the
answer to the question “How many
people shall we allow to die front
Dr. Parrott goes on to say, "I am
definitely of the opinion that typhoid
fever has not assumed anything that
approximates the proportions of an
epidemic, but I do feel that the situa
tion is fraught with real danger, and
that we must not fail to keep up our
high standard of sanitation through
out the State. In 1930 the death rate
from typhoid in five of our cities
which have a standard milk ordinance
and well-regulated water supply, and
in which there is a reasonable amount
of vaccination against typhoid fever,
was 2.7 and that,, too, in face of the
fact that those cities are medical cen
ters to which typhoid cases gravitate
and which receive the ‘credit' for the
death. During the same year, 1930
the death rate from typhoid in five
rural counties which do not have
standard milk ordinances and well
regulated water supplies, and in which
vaccination has not been as thorough
as it ought, the death rate was 12.7."
Concluding, the State health officer
states, "Typhoid fever is a disease
which can easily be prevented by a
simple procedure—immunization. I
take this occasion to urge our public
officials to remember that, while sick
ness is always a serious matter, it is
a real calamit during this depressldrt.
and that it is always much mofe"im
portant to have ea low death rate than
a low tax rate."
Social progress cannot be forced
from without; It must wait for de
