three each for Zebulon and Dowda
swatted four.
Zebulon spotted the visitors five
runs in two innings Sunday after

cluding a home ihm by catcher

After a wild first inning, which
saw two hits and two errors pro
duce four funs, Frank Lewis and
his mates settled down to hold
Clayton in check. Lane led Zeb
ulon at bat, getting three hits and
scoring four runs in four times at
bat. Big Harry Dowda hit three
for five. Lewis, Gregus, and
Thompson got two each.

Wake County Health Officer
We will begin our annual ty
phoid and diphtheria vaccination
campaign on May 31 and will con
tinue for three weeks through
June 19, 1948. Dispensary points
will be held throughout the entire
county at centers most convenient
to the greatest number of people.
Call together any group of rep
resentative citizens of your com

ion: What do you most desire for
yourself and your community? I
think the answer would be. free

mean good health for each indi

This community in which people
live is no healthier than the peo
ple who live in it. This has been
true in the past, and it is true to
day. There can be no isolationism
in the field of health and, today,
with rapid means of communica
tion and travel, it is difficult to is
olate an individual and it is more
difficult to isolate a community.
Full Time Program
The fight against infectious and
communicable diseases is a task
for each individual in the com
munity and the combined popula
tion of the community. The all
inclusive objective of any sound
program for the prevention of
communicable diseases, and the
eventual eradication of them, de

tivities for which the health de
partment, local governments,
individuals, and groups of indi
viduals, and groups of individuals
are responsible.
1. It is the duty and responsibil

provide and make available to all
the people the best and most mod

trolling communicable diseases by
the administration of vaccines and
sera and the application of other
preventive measures.
2. It is the duty and responsi

corporated towns to provide water
and sewerage facilities for all its
citizens not 50 percent or 90
percent part of the time because
of water cut off for non-payment
of dues but to 100 percent all the

In situations where leases had
expired on or before April 1, 1948,
a “reasonable time” has been al
lowed for filing reports because
landlords in some areas were not
familiar with a provision of the
new law requiring such reports
by April 16, and because of delay
in printing the new forms, (D-96)
he explained.
The Area Rent Director also
cautioned landlords that the new
leases to secure or exhaust the 15
percent increase provision of the
law must be filed with his office
within 15 days of execution.
