Tuberculosis is State Problem
"PtW. g, iuu. wnrvcsfrimi-ms
Htlon Southern Medical
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
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
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. \

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

UlKiwan College has made this
country a veritable Baptist, Eden.
The women of culture and. refine

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
