This survey will be made for the purpose of ascertaining the need of greater facilities for the Caswell Training school, which is a state Institution.

All who know of '^ny feeble minded in Wilkes are asked to get in touch with Mr. McNeill at tb® earliest possible date.

Health Officer Urgii^ Regular lations Periodical Examinations By Competent Physician Ne- cessay For Health FOR BENEFIT OF PUBLIC Constitutional Diseases Easily Eradicated In Earlier Stages, He Says Dr. A. J. Eller, county health officer, in a statement for publi cation today, urged the people of this section to look after their own 'welfare more closely by hav ing periodic examinations by competent physicians. In giving out this statement he called attention to some facts about medical treatment that should be common knowledge among the people but which are being disregarded, among them being that the more common constitutional diseases and weak nesses can be fought most suc cessfully if the physician is ap- priased of the patient’s condition while the disease is in its earl iest stages. With this in mind Dr. Eller Is earnestly asking the peo ple, especially adults, to have periodic examinations, to ascer tain whether or not they are suf fering from any constitutional disease. Commenting further on the subject of medical examinations Dr. Eller stated that he is giving this advice for the express bene fit of the public. He emphasized the need of examinations as a physical Inventory, pointing to a good business bouse as an illus tration. A business man will in variably take an Inventory of his property but oftentimes will- neg lect an inventory of his own body, he said. With the coming of fall weath er and the season for colds Dr. Eller is advising the people to be very careful and help in every way to keep down cold epidem ics. He asks all school children to cover their mouths while coughing, declaring that cold germs are more widely spread by coughing than any other way. Children who missed the health officer on bis regular ap pointments for vaccinations are urged particularly to be vacci nated for diphtheria to prevent any epidemic of this dangerous disease.
