FIGHTING THE WHITE PLAGUE
Educational Posters by the Thousand
to Be Displayed All Over
During the next three months, the
bill boards of the United States will
display 20,000 educational posters on
tuberculosis, according to an an-
nouncement made by the National As-
sociation for the Study and Preven-
tion of Tuberculosis.
This will conclude the campaign be-
gun s year ago, when the National
Bill Posters' association donated free
space to the tuberculosis cause, the
Poster Printers' association ofTered
free printing and nine paper manu-
facturers gave the paper for the post-
ers. The combined value of these sev-
eral donations for this three-month
campaign is nearly $100,000.
The posters are In six different de-
signs and are all printed in three col-
ors. They are seven feet wide and
nine feet high. Already nearly 2,500
of these posters have been hung on
the bill boards of 46 different cities,
nod it is planned to distribute 20,000
more before April 1 in over 400 towns
and cities. Any. anti-tuberculosis so-
ciety in the United Etates may re-
ceive free of charge, except for trans-
portation, as many of these posters as
can be hungi on the boards in its ter-
ritory. The National association with
the tuberculosis committee of the Na-
tional Billposters and Distributors are
conducting the campaign.
The posters show In graphic form
how fresh air, good food, and rest
cure tuberculosis; how bad air, over-
work and closed windows lead to con-
sumption; and how the careless con-
sumptive menaces the health of his
family by spitting on the floor.

SENATOR HATCHETT IS AUTHOR
OF IDEA TO AMEND
SHORT SESSION IS HELD
Blow In House Aimed at Pool Halls In
Small Towns Arouses a
Storm of Protest
Oklahoma City.—The house of repre-
sentatives devoted nearly all of Its
short Saturday afternoon session to
some violent parliamentary lighting
over house btl No. 161 by King, which
alms to abolish public pool halls ex-
cept In incorporated towns and cities.
Klve different roll calls were had. and
the bill was killed twice during the
scrimmage, but In the end emerged
still ullve, and adjournment was forced
by its friends before Maxey of Potta-
watomie, leading the fight on the bill,
could get another roll call with which
he intended to put an effectual end to
The author and friends of the bill ar-
gued that such a law is needed as a
kind of adjunct to prohibition enforce-
ment. In the rural districts, they said,
pool halls are only Bhlelds for "joints
and bootleg whisky."
The enemies of the measure said
that it Is a discrimination against the
farmers; that It would shut off the
only amusement the country boy had
In the small towns and at cross-road
The argument was much Intermixed
wiih motions to kill, pass, etc., and
voting down began soon after the bill
was up oil a motion that it do not
pass. This was defeated by a vote of
31 to 30; the bill was then forced
through committee of the whole;
killed on a final roll call forced by Its
enemies; revived by a motion to re-
consider; killed again, and uninten-
tionally revived again when those op-
posing it thought to cinch its defeat
by the motion to reconsider and table.
The "cinch" motion failed of a major-
ity vote, and Speaker Durant ruled
that the bill had thus been restored
to life again and had a place on the
calendar. Mnxey was at once on his
feet demanding another final roll call,
but a motion to adjourn took prece-
dence, and the much troubled bill is
still to be finally disposed of.
The bill by Senator Smith to repeal
the county division law and put a Btop
to county cutting was reported out of
committee back to the houBe without
recommendation, nnd was given a
place on the calendar. The bill by
Hammond forbidding the depositing
of public money in banks "Shaving"
county or state warrants, was unfav-
orably reported out of committee.

rules by the committee of the whole
when they secured the revocation ol

London.—Fear of the plague has
started a war on rats In several towns

the domestic cat Is under suspicion,
and many have been sacrificed In the
effort to prevent the plague.
An Iron cart, ordinarily used to col-
lect all sorts of dead animals. Is now
used exclusively for rats, and travels
•round the district dally with a man
walking ahead and calling on residents
to bring out the rats that have been
killed. The official notice states that
it has been proven beyond a doubt
that certain animals In Woodbrldge
died from the plague and a raid on the
rats Is directed because they are be-
lieved to have much to do with spread-
Efforts are being made In London to
