The General Assembly of 1937
enacted a law entitled, “An Act
Requiring the Examination of Do
mestic Servants.” In effect, it says
that all domestic servants, shall be
examined at least once each year,
and as often as the employer may
require. All servants employed, or
nuking application for employ-*
ment, shall furnish a certificate to
the employer from a reputable phy
sician, sertifying that such servant
has been examined within 2 weeks
from date of employment, and that
he or she is free from all conta
gious, infectious or communicable
diseases and showing the non-ex
istence of any venereal diesase
which might be transmitted. Such
certificate must show that a Was
sermann test or other approved
tests to diagnose venereal diseases
have been made and are negative.
This law to be effective, requires
l he observance of it by the people

reason the syphilis is so prevalent
today is that it has not been dealt

manner. The time has come for ac

But this action must be well-direct
ed and well-understood that both
the employer and the employee
may not suffer. I mean by this
that, a person may have the dis
ease, as proved by a blood tes.t, but
with proper treatment can be made
safe for employment without dan
ger to those with whom he or she
associates. This is true of tubercu
losis. A person may have this dis
ease but with proper care and
treatment may become—and of
ten does—a cured or arrested type,
and is not necessarily dangerous to
associates. But we must recognize
the fact that these diseases, when
they exist, must be recognized and
dealt with according to the best
scientific knowledge available for
the welfare of the patient and the
