NATIONAL" HEALTH WEEK - ”
The situation of national health
make a public question of deep con
| cern for all the elements of the peo- !
pie in our common land. Our race i
should have a sincere interest in this
matter. Lowest in the economic scale,
smallest in social significance and
weakest in physical power, it becomes
-imperative that we take advantage of
i any opportunity which will enable us
! to increase our store of general
knowledge and thereby add strength
and vision to the social efficiency of
National Health Week will soon be
with us. Whatever of program shall i
be provided for that occasion must !
be eagerly scanned in an effort to
, provide every facility for the people j
at large to get a clear understanding
,of health as it aff.utls the enure na- :
I We are one-tenth of the nation. If
lone-tenth of 'he nation is in ignorance
of the laws that serve to maintain
health, it means Hiat the nation will
finally succumb to the ravages of pes
tilence and disease. Black or white !
has nothing to do with the matter
except where criminal intention aims
to keep any of the elements in igno
rance of the laws that provide the re
lations of improved social conditions.
This is why the more intelligent
members of the race should busy
themselves to the end that every in
dividual of the group shall be made
aware of the significance and import
ance of the coming Health Week.
Health Is our biggest asset. Without
it, we ilTust fade from the face of the
earth. With health we can survive
to take a worthy place among the
strong peoples of the earth. Remem
ber Health Week and Keep It Holy.
