HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
The following article is made up of
the beat ptrasraplvs selected from
compositions written by Dl H. S. stu-
dents upon the origin, came, methods
of transmission, statistics, and treat-
mnt of tuberculosis.
These paragraphs were gleaned by
Mi.t, Opal Harbaugh and arranged In
the form given, but each paragraph,
represents the thought upon this im-
portant subject of some student
■ Combined, they form a most Inform-
ing article upon the subject.
| Tuberculosis is an infectious di-
sease caused by a minute germ call-
ed the Tubercular Bacillus Tubercu-
| : «is may affect any organ of the
body but is found most commonly in
'he lungs and bones.
Nearly every adult person has be-
| come infected. This does not mean
'hat the germs have found entranoe
I into the body and have impressed
themselves upon the tissues in such
la in i iner that their presence can be
determined by certain well-known
tsts. These inactive cases may be
1 converted into active cases by weak-
ness caused by some other disease,
! or by a cold, or some unusual physi-
Tuberculosis is never hereditary,
but is acquired after birth. Most in-
fections occur during early childhood).
The genms are found most commonly
in the sputum of those suffering'
with the disease. They may be found
occasionally In the pus discharged
from other organs of the body affect-
ed by tuberculosis disease such, for
example as the knee joint
Prolonged intimate associitlon of
healthy persons with those having
acuta tuberculosis leads to infection
Infection may be acquired also
under some circumstances by the in-
halation of the dust of dried and
ground jp luptam In the homes and
the streets. Most commonly, however,
as a mode of infection the germs are
conveyed to the mouth upon the fing-
ers of children who have been play
ing in contaminated places—the floor,
aide walks, gutters, etc. Or with lood
I handled by careless consumptives, in
| the home, crowded shops, cars, and
places o< assembly. Milk from tuber-
cular cows Is also a common source
The deaths from tuberculosis In the
United States now average 150,000 a
year. Every three and one-half min-
utes some man, woman, or child dies
from its ravages.
One-tenth of all the people who die
in the United States are victims of
Yet Tuberculosis is a preventable
and curable disease.
The National Tubrculosis Associa-
tion with its 1,990 affiliated oarganiza
lions plan to search out,, every undis-
covered case and put the afflicted per-
son in Tftie way of obtaining proper
treatment This work is financed
chiefly by the sale of Christmas seals.
Lend your support by sealing your
letters and Christmas packages with
Tuberculosis Chrr.stmas Seals. On sale
at all stores from December 1 to 25

"Think and Thank"
for Motion Today
"Think and 7' t\as the motto
upon the fnmlly v.:cat ot the great He-
brew philanthropist Sir loses Monte-
flore. It would be uu appropriate
armorial motto for America today.
These two little English words, differ-
ing In a 3ingle vowel, were originally
Identical. In the Anglo-Saxon tongue,
a "thank" was a "think." Thanking
comes from thinking, and thankful-
ness from thoughtfulness and thanks
giving from thought-giving. This will
be a season of unusual thanksgiving—
for we are made to think as we have
not been wont to think. It will be
a very selfish soul that this ««•' .n
fails to think-of the sorrows ana ..e
sufferings of others.
Look back at that first Aia# .can
Thanksgiving. Strange skies, sparse
settlements, sparse larder, savage en-
emy, but thankful spirit! What makes
the memory of the Pilgrim so pre-
vious? His thankfulness ! As Howell
"It is no Improper comparison that
a thankful hear* Is like a box of pre-
cious ointment which keeps the smell
long after the thing Is spent."
The Pilgrim and the Puritan have
passed on, hut they have left us a
precious possession—a Thanksgiving
day and the Thanksgiving spirit
Theirs was the Indomitable spirit be-
cause they "thanked God and took
courage." They landed undesignedly
on a "rock-bound wintry strand," but
they thanked God and took courage.
They found no gold, but they did find
the golden grain of a first harvest and
they thanked God and took courage.
They found a rude wilderness, but
they thanked God and took courage,
■ nd furrows were turned and towns
were buHt and cities grew and facto-
ries flourished and culture developed
and Instead of a wilderness a garden
blossomed and the fragrance of their
memory still survives and the spirit
of their grace still inspires.
Is Absolutely the
Natural Health Method
in Existence Today.
