Sheets of the .1952 Christmas Seal
feature the double-barred cross and
a glowing candle in an old-fashioned
brass candleholder, Miss Wood said.
The red double barred cross is the
registered insignia of the National
Tuberculosis Association and its 3,000
affiliates, and it is also the inter
national symbol of the modern cam
paign against tuberculosis. "
Since the early part of this cen
tury the cross has served as emblem
under which the voluntary associa
tions have fought the spread oi tu
berculosis in communities throughout
the nation, a fighfc largely financed
by the American people .themselves
through the annual purchasen of
Christmas Seals, Miss Wood pointed
The international insignia of the
fight against tuberculosis is an adap
tation of the historic Cross of Lor
raise. he emblem, of the Dukes of
Lorraine, , France, under which the
First Crusade was carried out. The
doublebarred cross was adopted as the
emblem of the modern crusadt against
tuberculosis on October 23, 1902, dur
ing the first organized international
conference on tuberculosis in Berlin,
Germany. Twenty nations, including
the United States, were represented
at the conference. :
