, T. B. Seal Sale
Begins Next Week
The double-barred cross is strikingly
symbolical of the anti-tubercu
losis crusade in this country. As
clearly defined as the two bars on
the cross lire the two main principles
of tuberculosis control.
These two principles can be stat-1
cd in a few words. First, find the J
person, who has tuberculosis.
ond. prevent the spread of the disease
The two principles are far-reaching.
Thus, one can see the extent of
the fight facing tire ^national Tuber
culosis Association and its more
than ltJOO affiliated association*
throughout the country. Christmas
Seal dollars are the sole support of
the fight that is being waged.
When buying Christmas Seals we
are not 'giving' our money to help
'-anyone elae. Christmas Seal dollars
are not given to charity. They are
iponey Invested in health.
Sale of the Seals will begin here
next Monday according to Mrs.
Mack Oantt, chairman. Seals will be
mailed to a list of citizens and a
house to house canvass witl he
' made to increase the sale of the
seals in Kings Mountain.
