Tuberculosis Clinic Here
Exclusive of Fluroscope Tests, 108 White and 12 Colored
Persons Examined; Two White, Two Colored New
Positives Discovered; Skin Tests Given
Statistics on the two weeks of tub
erculosis clinics held at Scott Parker
Sanatorium here, ending last Satur
day, were made public today by Z. P.
Mitchell, health officer, who reported
on the findings of Dr. W. T. Thornton,
of State Sanatorium, who conducted
the clinic. It was shown that a total
of 170 persons received tests of one
kind or another for tuberculosis, and.
it has no meaning, but as the years
pass by he puts a meaning into his
name. All that he does and all that
he is gives meaning to his name until
the time comes when the name is an
expression of the man. Some names
are rich in association and full of
Numerous names of history. Bibli
cal and secular, were named by the
preacher as illustrating his point.
‘Most of us, ’ he said, ‘‘will never
b e able to make for ourselves great
names, but we can, by the grace of
God, make make for ourselves good
names—and a good name is better
than a great name that is not good.
*‘We have been thinking tonight of
t?he name of L. W. Gerringer. Not a
great name someone may—not a name
that will go down in history like the
name of Benedict Arnold or a John
Dill.inger—no, but a good name, and I
would rather have it than many name
that has gone down in history, for it
brings to mind the memory of a true
servant of Christ, who loved his Lord
with ai real devotior.. it is the name
of one who was faithful to his Lord
in unremitting and indefatigable serv
ice. one who used his talents to the
best of his ability.
“The highest praise that Jesus ever
"mentioned as being given to any of his
servants is the praise that he said
would be given to those who faith
fully used the talents God had com
mitted to them. Could anything be
finer than to have that from the lips
of Jesus!—and we believe that our
brother has it, for he was constant
and faithful in his service.
“As we think of our brother let this
thought iemain: He won souls for
Christ who shall greet him in Heaven,
he left the world better for having liv
ed in it; he left example to every one
of us that should stir us to use to the
best of our ability the talents that
God has given to us and he left a
good name, whose memory is blessed’’.
Dr. Mitchell said it was the best clinio
he had ever been connected with.
Included in the 170 total were 50
fluroscope examinations. An analysis
of the 120 others, who were given more;
minute examinations, showed 108 white
and 12 colored patients tested. Os that
number, two white and two colored
reacted positively as having tubercu
losis; thit is, four new cases that had
not been previously examined. There
were six suspicious cases of white peo
ple, but no suspicious cases of colored
Negative white patients were 76 and
negative colored nine, a total of 85,
meaning that no evidence of the dis
ease was found.
Twenty-four white and one colored
patients who had previously been ex
amined were tested again at this clinic.
Skin tests were given to 55 children,
46 of them white and nine colored, and
of that group 17 white and seven col
ored reacted positively, indicating an
infection. All of them had been in
contact with the disease.
'Of the childrn found with the dis
ease, X-Rays were given to ten white
and four colored.
The fluroscopic test alone is not as
sufficient and not as accurate as the
more complete examinations, but were
given because there was not time for
the more detailed work, Dr. Mitchell
explained today.
