The Red Cross Christmas Seal
Sale is deserving of the support
: of every individjal in Oklahoma.
It is a fight for health. And a
fight for health is not only a fight
against disase: it is a fight for
positive benefits-for increased
human happiness and efficiency.
The seal sale is under the di-
rect supervision of the Okiahr-
ma Tuberculosis Association,
i working in co-operation with the
National Tuberculosis Associa-
| tion. Efforts will be concentra-
ted against tuberculosis, but tbe
field of endeavor is wider than
this- It includes sn extension
of tbe work slong the lines as
infant welfare, public health
surveys, public nurses, better
school snd home conditions, san-
itation, snd, sbove all education
of tbe public to the neceseity and
advantages of public health
work. Every publi: health of-
ficial well knows tbe needs fcr
end) endeavor in Oklahoma.
The recent state legialature
was most liberal in its apprecia-
tion for health work. The Red
Crom Christmas Seal Sale afforda
each individaul opportunity to do
