Gives Results of X-rays
4,788 persons in Leaksville Township
were X-rayed in the recent survey made
by the Division of Tuberculosis Control,
State Board of Health and the Rocking
ham County Health Department. Of this
number 3,206 were mill employees, ap
proximately 80 per cent of mill people
The results so far of the mill survey
has revealed six positive cases of tuber
culosis and one possible case of cancer
of the lung. Two of these were found
to be minimal and two moderately ad
vanced. Twenty-eight persons who have
been asked to have retakes made have
not returned for the X-rays. Outside the
mills four cases of tuberculosis have
been found. Three of these were found
to be old cases and one a new case. Of
all the high school groups X-rayed no
tuberculosis was revealed. This includes
Leaksville, Draper and Douglas high
It is interesting to note that nearly 50
per cent of the cases found are over 50
years of age. Tuberculosis has been
known for many years to strike at the
most productive age group, making tu
berculosis economically one of the lead
ing diseases. In the United States today
tuberculosis is seventh is the leading
