SPIRIT OF BREVARD
Editor Bre^vard New»:
As a representative of the State
Bdard of Health, I wiirii to make
grateful acknowledgement on behalf
of the State Department and. for my
self personally, for the wonderful
manifestation of appreciation and co
operation in regard to the clinics con
ducted in this county for school chil
dren. The citizens have giver every
support that could be desired in*both
material contributions and personal
service. The quick response to the op
portunity offered the school children'
by the bureau of medical school in
spection of the State Board of Health
has been beyond all expectations.
Indeed, I am not hoping for such
results in so short a time as have been
realized in Transylvania again.
The actual work has covered about
five weeks, over five hundred child
ren have been inspected for throat
defects pai^ticularly and one ’hun-
dren and ten have been operated on
successfully. Of the total cases op
erated on six were negroes. Fourteen
free cases were operated on.

the county in the past few days and members of the Scout
are playing havoc with pastures in'^®m®*ttee, Rev. W. E. Poovey and
the county and in some cases are eat
ing com. The worms are doing the
most damage in the section around
Rosman, Cherryfield, and Pisgah For
The farmers should keep a close
watch for them in their neighborhood
and check them if possible.
The Department of Agriculture at
Raleigh advises that the best method
to stop worms from traveling from
one field to another is to plow several
deep furrows around field and main
taining ' a thick dust if possible in
furrow. As worms collect in these
furrows they may be killed with a
drag. Another method sometimes
used is to apply a heavy dose of paris
green to a strip a few yards wide
around a field threatened, if there
is^ no stock to be grazed on field.
The army worm is the younger
stage of a dull brownish moth. The
moth passes the winter as a half

emerges in the spring as a full grown

percent of the people with whom I
have spoken are impatient of the po

I that this nation shall assume the ob-

with them 1 think I find their
thoughts running thus:

world league must inevitably lead to
a return to the old national rivalties
and inordinate ambitions, with fresh
conflicts and a renewal of hostilities
^ They are not ambitious that
America should assume European or
be some additions to the teaching
corps for the coming year. A number responsibilities, they feel that
of new courses are to be added to the
curriculum of the local schools and
prospects are bright for one of the
most successful years in the history
of the institution.
