in cnargn or malarial Investigations In

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
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

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
"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.
"The following requirements will be
accepted aa a minimum standard of
health organisations In any Southern
"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
