Tuberculosis is State Problem "PtW. g, iuu. wnrvcsfrimi-ms Htlon Southern Medical Association Tuberculosis is a State Droblein and, as audi ought to be handled by the State with a central agency fur the re|K>rtiiig of every case and a method of attaca strengtliened by a co-o|>erative sanatorium es tablished by the State and main tained by various agencies, politi cal, aocial, business, insurance, fraternal, and religious iu the Slate. Tliii Is the opinion of the Slate Board of lfealth and will las the central theme of the Secre tary of the Statu Board, Dr. \V. S. Hankie, when he addresses the ICighth annual meeting of the Southern Medical Aaesociation in Richmond, November 912. At the eighth annual moating of the association, the North Carolina State Board of lfealth will be re presented by its president. Dr. J. Howell Way, of Waynesville, it* secretary and treasurer. Dr. W. S. Rankin, of Raleigh, and by Dr. L. B. McBrayer, superintendent of the Slate sanatorium for the treatment of tuberculosis. On Tuesday, Dr. Rankin ad dresses the association <hi the "State's Policy in the Manage ment of Tuberculosis." He ap proaches his subject in the light of "Tuberculosis as a , State Pro blem," and shows that the State's death rate is .a responsibility be loiigtug directly to the State Board of Health, and that one fourth of this responsibility is due to the preventable death rate from tuber culosis. He says in part. "Tuber" cuh>i>is is therefore clearly and distinctly a State health problem of such magnitude as to call fur a definite end comprehensive State policy." In determining this (state policy lie points out the average State's inability to bear in to the weight of this-burden and suggests plans and policies as follows: "While the average State cannot herself carry her burden of tuberculoid^ she can have it carried. The State can divide the burden into many parts; the State can carry the lar ger part, a part large enough to encodrage by her example the cooperation and assistance of all the political, fraternal, religious, business, social and insurauce or ganizations within her realm; she can correlate and direct the co operative elforts of these multiple agencies and so bring to bear con certed attack all along the retreat ing iilie of the greatest enemy of the race." He suggests as a means of * pro perly grasping and apportioning the tuberculosis prdblem that there be a State law requiring the re porting of tuberculosis to a central office on a suitable blank form, and proposes ns a plau of attack,, a cooperative sanatorium to be con structed by the State and main tained by the various cooperative agencies above referred to; the correspondence school to be main tained out Of the maintenance funds of tile sanitorium and to have as its fuuctious: First, to re ceive the reports of the cases of tuberculosis in the State under the law requiring such retmrts to be made; yecond, to bring together the needy, incipient and moderate ly advanced consumptive case and the organization of one -kind or another that lias interest in the case; third, to matriculate all cases of tuberculosis reported uot in the sanitorium as members> of the cor respondence shoot. \ West Chowan Association. ~ The West Chowan, sending re presentatives of more then 12,000 Baptist, met iu its thirty-second session at Harrellsviite. The Ban Usts of liarrellsville had rebuilt their church, enlarging and beauti fying it, and w.ere ready for the visitor*- This little town has- one of theniceet churches iu the State fur the aiasof the place.

Mitehell, Vice Moderator; N. W. Button. Clerk: Dr. R. P. Thomas, Treasurer; and Rev. R. B. Liuberry, Historian, were reelected. No association could boast of more capable offi cers. The watchword of the West Chowan is - development. Many churches are 'making progress, while others are making little .or no progress. But with the strong pastors and tlie many aggressive laymen there is no doubt but tluil the West Chowan will remain, as she has for years been, one of the most powerful Baptist bodies in the bounds of the Southern Bap tist Convention. UlKiwan College has made this country a veritable Baptist, Eden. The women of culture and. refine ment throughout the Association make it a place moat enviable to live in.- Chowan College is pass ing through a crisis but ''we have no do.u1>t that the result will be a furtherance of every good cause and the strengthening of the Col lege. The men of this section kuuw what the College has meant to the entire Association and the State will rally aroifud the school and President Lineberry and free it of debt, and it wilt take its place among tbe foremost finalist colleges in our Southland. The West Chowan is one of the most ?y?l bodies to every de nominational enterprize that wo have in the Slate. When the masses of this grest Baptist As Huciation shall have been develop ed to the point that many have al ready attained, it will be that there is no rival in all the laud for the position and influence of thisgreat Association.?By J.
