U. S. OFFICIAL HAS PLAN 10 BENEFIT lid MEMPHIS M Would Have Government Guarantee Health Condition of Counties Which Comply With Requirements. Counties In the trl-rtntis will rrap uciiein in an aiivrrusiiiK way. Incident to their Improved hrnlth con ditions, f a program mapped out lv Huifteon L. I. Frick. medical officer in cnargn or malarial Investigations In the Mouth, with henrii-iimncrs In Mm. Phis, is carried out hv Hie United States public health service. . Dr. Frick will submit his program to inc surgeon-general of the Vnlted states before It can become operative. Before doing so, however, he is ob taining from all persons possible their flows as to feasibility of the plan. It provides ihat counties shall do a certain amount of health work. This completed, the government will "ap prove" the county. With this approval It will give the county authorltv and permission to use the governments name In advertising to the world that "the I'nlted States government guar antees that this county's health condi tions are excellent." The proposal. If carried out. will en. able counties in the whole lower Mis sissippi valley to deal a final and death blow to the ill-founded belief th-ough-out the nation thnt the region Is not healthful. It will do more to stimulate Immigration and development of idle lands than any other one thing In the belief of some of the men who already - have approved It Association Helping. Dr. Frlck recently submitted nn out line of the plan to the Southern Allu vial Iand association, of Memphis, which la devoting its efforts to at tracting attention to the development of the so-called delta portions of the lower Mississippi valley and to remov ing some of the old prejudices people In the North and East have against the territory. The association not onlv approved Ir. Prick's program but of fered to aid Mm in anv possible wav Directors of the assocfatlon, who in clude lumbermen, planters and business men, say that the greatest obstacle to a steady flow of Immigration Into the lower valley is the old belief that the territory is not healthful. In submitting an outline of Ms pro gram, Dr. Prick said that it probably will provide: "The United States public health ser vice will enter Into agreement with the different state health authorities where, by county health organisations will be Inspected and approved when found to be properly organised, financed and ad ministered. "County health organisations wilt be inspected from time to time by a rep resentative of the state board of health and an officer of the United States public health service detailed for this purpose upon request of the state health officer. The result of these Inspections will be published In the public health reports, together with a list of those counties whose health organisations have been approved. This information will be furnished to the different agri cultural journals of the United States and the counties themselves may make whatever use they may desire of these reports In advertising Improved health conditions within their limits. Four Requirements. "The following requirements will be accepted aa a minimum standard of health organisations In any Southern county: "First Full-time unit with the fol lowing personnel as a minimum: one county health officer, one public health nurse, one sanitary Inspector. "Second. Adequate appropriation for public health work. "Third. An adequate system of birth and death reports. "Fourth. An adequate system of re porting communicable diseases. "In addition to the above reoulre- ments it must be ahown that the health' work of the oounty unit Is being prop erly administered that communicable diseases within the county are being controlled and that from a health stand, point the county can be recommended as a aare place or abode ror anyone de siring to take up his residence therein, before approval of the county's health organisation will be given."' It Is said by Dr. Frick that many counties already have provided for county health work so that they would need to spend but little more than at present. Under present conditions they do not get the "backing" of the gov ernment as Is provided under Dr. Frick'a program. He estimates that $12,000 to 15, 000 a year would take care of work in any county In the lower valley region. Dr. Frlck has charge ot all malarial THE NEWS SCIMITAR.

Then as the boy became more pro ficient In the handling of his various specimens, tie taught them different stunts and charged two cents admis sion to his "show" once a week. Finally young Al was advised to go West and get after blwr game, so he sold his captives to another ven turesome youth and landed in Idaho on one of the first Northern Pacific trains to cross the Montana prairies. In five yents he had a collection of trained ponies, wolves and larger wild antmais, which was the nucelus of the present assemblage of the beasts of the world, and which Is said to be the largest on earth.

Such was the start of the great wild animal circus. MERIDIAN DOCTOR, SHOT IN FACE; IS RECOVERING MERIDIAN. Miss., Aug. 3. fSpl.) Dr. B. 1..
