IN HEALTH MOVE
Or. Dukt, State Health Commissioner,
Urges Public Interest in Health
against preventable disease and gen-
eral deterioration of physical morale.
I realize that "morale" is a sadly over-
worked word these days; yet I must
Insist that high morale with respect to
any department of public endeavor is
the thing most to be desired. So 1 am
going to stick with the term "morale"
and efcll attention of the state at this
time to one of the most Important
morale building movements ever pro-
jected,—The Modern Health Crusade.
Briefly, this Is an "a-b-c" course,
for school children between the ages
of six and sixteen, in the ordinary
roles of disease prevention. It Is nat-
ional in scope; but as a state official
1 would, not endorse It even though It
nearly a year In Uncle Sam's service.
We are suroly glad to have him with
us again. His parents gave a social
Saturday in hhi honor. A large crowd
attended and all reported a splendid
time. Apples and candy were served.
Several of the community attended
the Literary at Dill last Thursday
night. All reported a good program
and a fine time.

move If I did not think it a good thing
for the state.
As a matter of fact, I think the
Health Crusade as projected, and is
already well under way in Oklahoma,
Is one of the most Important bits of
education ever undertaken. If I had
administrative authority so to do, I
would order every school superinten-
dent in the state to put on the Crusade
regardless of whatever else might
confront his teaching force. My func-
tion, however, is merely that of advisor
But I wish to transcend that function
Jn the case of this campaign to the ex-
tent of becoming an exhorter.
Schoolmen of Oklahoma, and I dare
to address you front to front without
seeking approach through ray fellow
office holder's authority—I refer to
Superintendent, R. H. Wilson—I plead
with you to fall in line with the Mod-
ern Health Crusade movement. It
ought to sweep the country with
promptitude and whole-heartedness.
The State Board of Health has been
compelled to sit by and wring its hands
in despair while hundreds of Okla-
homans died off of Influenza. I recall
that 800 of the best physicians of the
United States, in convention in Chi-
cago shortly before Christmas, were
compelled to bow their heads in hum-
ble helplessness before the scourge-
—Influenza. The net result of this
conference of the world's best medi-
cal opinion was the declaration that
Influenza could be prevented only by
adherence to the common rules of
hygiene and sanitation.
Now along come two great national
BOCletieB.—Red Cross and the Tuber-
culosis Association—and take up the
work of spreading Information as to
what the common rules of health are.
The community that spurns the ef-
forts of these two organizations is
foolhardy. There can be no such thing
as reconstruction unless we set about
bulwarking public health. The only
way of safeguarding public health is
to start the child right, and by that I
mean making him sponsor of his own
fine physical fitness. Make him so
familiar with health axioms that he
will avoid things that menace good
health. Imbue him with a mania for
hygiene. It can be done. It must be
done. The rules of themselves are
almple. What is most Important now
la to shake the consciousness of the
young, and through the school children
the consciousness of adults so that
they never again will be people con
tent jUBt because they happen not to
need a doctor. They must come to
the point where they know of their
own efforts that sickness is unneces-
sary .therefore Im^ssible.
f Now, and I still presume to addroBs
the schoolmen of Oklahoma, there can
be no evasion of responsibility in the
matter of Joining the Modern Health
Crusade. I don't care how busy you
are; It makes no difference to me as
a state official, as a physician or an
Individual how far behind in their

Notice of Sale of Real Estate.
Sin IM M
Probably Start in April. To Provide
Funds to Complete the Job. Known
as the Victory Liberty Loan.
The Fifth Liberty Loan is to be the
Victory Liberty Loan. The bonds are
to be offered for sale to the American
people to provide revenues needed to
complete the job. Therefore, It Is to
be the last of the series of Liberty
The size of the loan is to be deter-
mined by the financial needs of the
Government at the time It Is offered :
but it will not be much smaller, if any,
than the Fourth Liberty Loan, which
was for 16,000,000,000.
How long the bonds are to run. tbe i
rale of Interest they are to hear, what \
kind of bonds the Government will j
put out, are matters to be determined i
by the Secretary of the United Statesj
The date for the opening of the cam- j
paign for subscriptions to the Victory
Liberty Ixian cannot at this time be I
foretold. It probably will be in April. J
The foregoing statement concerning i
the Victory Liberty Loan was madfe j
to the state and district chairman of
I he Liberty Loan Organization, Tenth!
Federal Reserve District, by Lewis B. j
Franklin, Director of War Loans, j
United States Treasury, at a confer-
ence in the Muehlebech Hotel, Kan- j
sas City, on January 22-23.
The leaders of the great Army Here j
at Home, which has met with such
wonderful success in putting over
previous Liberty Loans in the Tenth
Federal Reserve District, were called
into conference by J. L. Cross. Tenth
District Director of the Government j
Loan and Savings Organization, to
discuss the problems involved and to
lay plans for the campaign for sub-
scriptions to the Victory Liberty Loan.
Every state in the Tenth Federal Re-
serve District, and practically every
district subdivision of the states, was
represented. The state chairmen of
the Women's Liberty Loan Committee
and the state directors of the War
Savings Committee also participated.
While conditions have changed I
somewhat since hostilities ceased, and ■
while the wln-the-war spirit which
cheered the boys in battle has been
dimmed by the fact that the war has
ben won the chairmen reported that
the people of the Tenth Federal Re-
serve District are not now lacking in
patriotism. And when the campaign
opens they will be found ready to
back the Government with subscrip-
tions to the fifth and last Liberty Loan
to finish the job, settle up accounts
and bring the boys home.
One chairman from Kansas voiced
the sentiment of the conferees when'
he said: "There are 110 million people ;
and the best people in the best coun-
try on earth, that ought to be happy,
today that they don't have to buy 24
billion dollars of bonds Instead of 6
billions. 1 think the Government,
should stabilize the bond, but if they j
don't we are going to buy anyway. The
reason is because w^ are American;
citizens, and we sent the boys 2 mil-
lion of them, over to France to win the
victory, and we are going to bring
them back, and it takes money to do
Mr. Franklin, on behalf of the Gov-
ernment, explained the state of war
finances and told of the necessity of
a Fifth Liberty Loan.
"We promised the Allied Military
Council that we would deliver in
France by July 1918, 600,000 he said.
"We actually had on foreign soil 2,-
000,000 men. We promised them by
July 1, 1919, we would have 4,000,000
soldiers fully armed and eeuippqd for
the fighting line in France, and we
would have made good had it been
necessary- Of course, we had to pre-
pare for these 4,000.000 men. Des-
pite the wonderful success of our
boys in France, we had not really got
started to fight when the Germans'
quit. We are paying for a party that |
is over: but it was a good party." j
Reports from the state and district j
chairmen disclosed that the splendid
Liberty Loan organization is in fine
condition for effective and efficient
work In the forthcoming campaign.
The influenza made great inroads on
the county chairmen in many parts
of the Tenth District, and a few of
the district ehairmen also were num-

FARMERS TO PEACE BA8IS.
Washington, Feb. 1.—Farmers of
the United States wer urged today by
the Departmnt of Agriculture to re-
turn to sound farm practice in the
coming season, abandoning certain
emergency measures adopted during
the war, bo as to assure ample sup-
plies of all kinds for this country and
No cause for alarm as to the ability
of American agriculture to maintain
its position in world trade during the
period of readjustment is forseen by
the department, which declares that
a considerable demand from European
countries for foodstuffs was almoBt
assured for a year or more.
The signing of the armistice found
the United States with fairly large
stocks ot foods, but with smaller
stocks of feeds. It was recommended
that pasture lands plowed up for grow-
ing grains and other food crops should
be reseeded to grass and that regular
and satisfactory rotation of crops be
A wise live stock program was said
to include maintaining horses and
mules, without material increase; a
normal increase in dairy cows and beef
cattle, conservative increase in swine
until the relative shortage and high
prices of feeds are overcome, an in-
crease in sheep consistent with facil-
ities and in poultry of a minimum of a
purchased feed is required.
The indicated plant program was
said to be not so definite. The depart-
ment is certain that farmers will be
justified in maintaining their acreage
of corn, oats and barley, large pro-
ductions of which are necessary to
live stock production, but the policy
as to wheat, of which Europe will need
728,000,000 bushels, depends upon a
complicated set of conditions yet un-
determined. It appears desirable to
increase hay production by 25 per
cent. Arreage planted to cottqn, of
which an apparent deficit is Indicted,
shoud be adjusted so that the farmer
may produce enough food and feed
for his family and live stock. Peanut
production, increased during the war
because of the demand for oil, should
be readjusted as a part of crop econ-
omy. Those who intend to maintain
home gardens were urged to plant for
their own needs rather than attempt to
market their produce.
