“Why, no one looks sick!” visitors
to the sanatorium are often heard to
exclaim. Which ia true. The phe­

that only the incipient eases are ad­

the strict regimen of rest, plenty of
nourishing food and fresh air soon
add weight to the body and put color
into the patients’ cheek.*. Alio, there
is an atmosphere of good-fellowship
among the patients, and between the
patients and their physicians, which
promotes cheerfulnes.% is itself an
excellent tonic. Further, the mem­
bers of the medical »taff are, for the
most part, themselvea arrested cases
it tuberculosis, a fact that helps to
increase the confidence of the patient
in his physician and in the treatment.
The important thing in the treat­
ment of tuberculosis is the education
of the patient. Six months is the
length of time that the average in­
cipient case requires to recover from
the disease. During this time the
rules of healthful living and the spe­
cial care which the ex-tuberculosis
patient must observe in order to keep
wdl, are so thoroughly drilled into
him that the chances of a relapse are
almost nil, provided he continues to
observe them. As an illustration of
how conscientiously the patients obey
instructions, there is the story of
last summer’« ball game at which
Christy Matthew «on, “ex-T. B.,” and
the idol of the Saranac colony, pitched
the first ball. The patients at Tru­
deau are requested not to talk loudly^
because of the strain this pl^res upon
»he throat and lungs. The impulse
on this
occasion, however, was
stronger than the will power of the
fans, and one of the crowd in the
grandstand rose and shouted “Three
good cheers for Matty! But.” he added
quickly, “not too rousing boys, re­
member!” And one of their number
who had been put on “absolute
silence” by his physician whispered
hoarsely, “Gosh, I can’t cheer for
you Matty, but I’ll cough for you!”
The conscientious patient thus
trained, upon his return home« spreads
• he gospel of good health among his
friends. Besides knowing how to
take care of his own health, he under­
stands the principles of community
hygiene. He knows the dangers of
spitting; he knows that flies are
germ carriers; he haa learned that
cattle spread disease
through infected milk and that, there­
fore, all cattle should be tuberculin
tested or their milk pasteurized. So
that the business of “curing” at Tru­
deau affects not only the individual
patient, but trtole communities
throughout the country to which they
come back to continue their lives of
social and economic uteBulneas.
Hundreds of other sanatoria for
the treatment of tuberculosis have
been established throughout the
eounti-y during the past 15 years.
But many more are needed to care
for the many cases for whom there
are at present no vacant beds. To
raise funds for this purpose and other
phases of the tuberculosis campaign,
the National TuberculoBis association
and its affiliated organizations are
holding their annual sale of Christ­
mas seals in December.

Not Settled
Monitor, San F'rancisco
Oregon’s action on Tuesday haa not
settled by any means its school issue.
The winning of a skirmish doesn't
settle a war, and perhaps it’s just m
well that thia education question
should be brought to a definite set­
tlement and bring with it a new dec­
laration of the elementary right« of
man. The way to state paternalism
has been of late too much like the
famous Vergilian descent to Avernua.
Oregon may be doing an unconscious
service to the country in bringing
people beck to a clearer atmosphere
for the understanding of principles
of liberty and justice. At least she
has shown one method in which the
power of the ballot may be misused,
and has given a classic illustration
of the way in which some things
should not be done.

We have advertised ourselves as

the pec.ple have voted to close private

child the ward of the state. The elec­
tion proved that Catholics and Lutn-

taining religious schools ars not
wanted and that religious toleration
has been abolished in favor of sec­
tarian fanaticism.
A Disgrace to the State
Oregon Voter
Enactment of the miscalled com­
pulsory education bill by the voter«
of Oregon b a disgrace to the state.
It is only a matter of time before new
legislation will be enacted to permit
private and parochial schools to exist,
but the disgrace of this vote will not
be wiped out until it is forgotten.
Oregon will surely reverse itself, for
the law inflicts a hideous wrong, and
wrong so cruel will not survive even
in a state that temporarily waa so
inflamed by prejudice that it per­
mitted this unjust law to be placed
upon its statute books.

One Loophole Left
Portland Oregonian
It will be noted that the parent or
guardian must send his child to “a
public school" and he is guilty of a
misdemeanor for every day’s failure.
If the Oregonian is able to interpret
the measure correctly—and it thinks
it is—the parent or guardian who
sends his son or daughter out of Ore­
gon to a private or parochial school
goes contrary to the law. So far as
we can see, however, there is nothing
to prevent his moving with his family
to another state.
