Need More Doctors
There is a grea)t shortage of doc
tors in the rural areas of North
Carolina; this was true even before
the war, and the situation continues
to grow worse.
The Department of Rural Sociol
ogy at State College, under the di
rection of Dr. C. Horace Hamilton,
quotes data from the American Med
i al Directory, and the N. C. Medical
Society to show that in 1940 only 31
per cent of the doctors of North Ca
rolina were found in the areas where
73 per cent of the people lived.
Where one doctor is needed for
each 1,000 people, there was only one
doctor for 6,174 rural people in
