PUBLIC HEALTH FIRST
(By J. A. Whitehurst Pres. State
Board of Agriculture.)
The annual Tuberculosis Christmas
Seal sale has started as this is writ-
ten. Reports indicate that is is
meeting with tremendous success. I
am glad to hear it for there is cer-
tainly nothing more essential to Ok-
lahoma than a healthy citizenship.
Without health a state can no more
survive than an individual I have been
told and I believe it is true that
there are at least 40000 persons in
Oklahoma afflicted with tuberculosis
in a more or less advanced stage.
Three thousand citizens of Oklahoma
enough to form a respectable city
die of this disease every year. And
the pitiful thing is that most of thei-e
deaths occur among young persons
state-builders city-buildeis produc-
ers. The money from the Tuberculosis
Christmas Seal bale goes into the
work of curing these people and in
teaching others how to avoid contract-
ing tuberculosis. Tuberculosis Christ-
mas seals sell for on? lent each.
This is a small sum to give to such
a cause yet many pennies contributed
by the state will seive to send the
Great White Plague flying into re-
treat. Every Oklahoman is asked to buy
at least 10 of these eals this year.
I sincerely hope that Oklahoma will
give this quota and that soon we
can take our place among those Mates
who can say that they are spending
at least as much to cure and prevent
diseases among their pcopli as they
spend to prevent and cure diseases
in their farm animals
HARD TO KILL
That a course in matrimony will
inure a man to dangers and disaster
which would prove fatal to a single
man who was not accustomed to re-
ceiving the jabs and jolts which fall
to the share of his more venturesome
brother is practically demonstrated
by James Freeman of Omaha Neb.
who has a bullet in his heart and is
still alive. He was shot by his wife
from whom he had been separated.
When he returned home he is said to
have threatened her. She met him at
the door and fired point blank. He
Walked to the nolico station Tionrlv
(three miles away where medical at
tention was given him. He was re-
moved to a hospital and an X-ray
taken which showed the bullet nestling
in the heart.
