MANY SIDED 'TEDDY'
How the President Always Sup
plies the Demand
WONDERFUL HONOR IS HIS
Will be President of the International
Congress on Tuberculosis, the
Greatest Assemblage of Its Kind in
History Convenes Next September
President Roosevelt's many-skled
ncss was strikingly illustrated during
the week the conference of Governors
was in session. In spite of the many
interests political, personal and social
engaging his attention, he found time
to inform the officers of the Interna
tional Congress on Tuberculosis of
his acceptance of the presidency of
that Congress, which is to be held in
Washington on September 21 to
October 12. Incidentally, in com
menting upon the importance of the
anti-tuberculosis crusade from an ceo
nomic standpoint, he characterized
the movement as full of hope for the
individual and sure to confer mater
ial benefit on tthe country as a whole
He touched upon the opportunity the
gathering of scientists and investiga
tors from every part of the world will
afford for the interchange of know
ledge and for the consequent increas
ed efficiency on the part of the med
ical profession to be expected. He
referred also to the strengthening of
international ties, and to the profound
realization of the brotherhood of man
to be gained from the union of all
nations in the fight against the foe
the white plague that is common to
all. The President's acceptance was
addressed to Dr. Lawrence F. Flick,
of Philadelphia, chairman of the Com
mittee of Arrangements for the Con
gress. The letter follows:
The mite House,
Washington, May 12, 1908.
It is with great pleasure that I ac
eept the presidency of tthe "Interna
tional Congress on Tuberculosis"
which is to meet in this city on Sept.
21, 1908, and extend its session to
Oct. 12, 1908. Official duties, how
ever, may prevent my presiding at the
initial meeting of the Congress, in
which case I will deputize Secretary
The importance of the crusade
against tuberculosis, in the interest of
which this Congress convenes, can
not be overstimated when it is realiz
td that tuberculosis costs our country
two hundred thousand lives a year,
and the entire world a million lives
a year, besides to material progress,
prosperity and happiness, and being
an enormous expense to society, most
often in those walks of life where the
burden is least bearable.
Science has demonstrated that this
disease can be stamped out, but the
rapidity and completeness with which
this can be accomplished depend upon
the promptness with which the new
doctrines about tuberculosis can be
inculcated into the minds of tthe peo
ple and engrafted upon our customs,
habits and laws. The presence in our
midst of representatives of world wide
workers in this magnificent cause
gives an unusual opportunity for ac
celerating the educational part of the
The modern crusade against tuber
culosis brings hope and bright pros
pects of recovery to hundreds and
thousands of victims of the disease,
who under old teachings were aban
doned to despair. The work of this
Congress will bring the results of the
latest studies and investigations be
fore the profession at large and place
in the hands of our physicians all the
newest and most approved methods of
treating the disease a knowledge
which will add many years of valu
able life to our people and will there
by increase our public wealth and
The International Congress on Tu
berculosis is in the interest of univer
sal peace. By joining in such a war
fare against a common foe the people
of the world are brought closer to
gether and made to realize better the
brotherhood of man; for a united in
terest against a common foe fosters
universal friendship. Our country
which is honored this year as the host
of other nations in this great gather
ing of leaders and experts and as the
custodian of the magnificent exhibit
wheh will be set up by the entire
world, should manifest its apprecia
tion by giving the Congress a setting
worthy of the cause, of our guests,
and of ourselves. We should en
deavor to make it the greatest and the
most fruitful Congress which has yet
boon held, and 1 assure you of my in
terest and services to that end.
With expressions of appreciation
for the compliment conferred in ex
tending the invitation to become pres
ident of the Congress.
Dr. Edward I,. Trudeau has been
elected honorary president of the
Congress, and Viec-Fresident Fair
banks, Speaker Cannon and the gov
ernors of the States have been asked

that capacity include Vice-President

nors Gillet of California, Buchtel of
Colorado, Woodruff of Connecticut,
Deneen of Illinois, Ilanly of Indiana,

The International Congress on Tu
berculosis comes to this country on
tthe invitation of the National Asso
ciation for the Study and Prevention
of Tuberculosis. Preparations for the
Congress are under way all over the
world, and it promises to be the great
est gathering in the interest of public
health ever held in this country. A
preliminary announcement, which has
just been issued, contains in addition
to the plans and the provisional pro
gram for the seven sections which
will make up the assemblage, the per
sonnel of the committees of arrange
ment in tthe States and Territories in
this country, and in the other coun
tries that will take part in the Con
gress and in the exhibition. Every
State in the Union is represented in
this list, and twenty-eight foreign
countries. Fifteen hundred persons
are named on the State Committee
lists for our own country and over
1,250 in the register for other lands.
Great Britain takes the lead so far
as numbers are concerned with a
committee of 247 members of which
Sir Wm. Church, ex-president of the
Royal College of Physicians of Eng
land, is chairman. Sir T. Clifford All-
but, Professor G. Sims Woodhead,
and Dr. Wm. Osier, formerly of the
Johns Hopkins Hospital, constituted
the committee on organization, and
among the other members of the gen
eral committee are the Countess of
Aberdeen, who is at the head of the
sub-committee for Ireland: Sir
Thomas Barlow of London, consult
ing physician to the King's house
hold; and Professor Sir Rubert Boyce,
member of the Royal Commission on
The French committee with a
membership of 154 members comes
next, and the German list with 144
takes the next place. M. Loubct the
former president of France is honor
ary president of the committee for
that country, and the register of this
and of the other European commit
tee is virtually a "Who's Who" of the
most distinguished investigators in
the field of preventive medicine. In
addition to tthe scientists and medi
cal men of marked distinction, a
large number of officials of high soc-
il and political rank are included in
the list. Members of the French
committee have indicated their inten
tion of making what they have called
"sentimental journey" en route to
tne Congress in Washington, this
tour will take them first to Canada,
where they will make a historic pil
grimage of the territory at one time
owned by their country.
The German committee contains
many notable names. That of Robert
Koch, the discoverer of the tubercle
bacillus, stands pre-eminent among
them, and the long list mentions men
of affairs like VictorV Prince Ifoheno
and Covey, Ernst von Mendclssohcr
Bartholdy, a member of the Prussian
Diet; and Dr. von Iiethmann-Hol-lweg,
Imperial Secretary of the Inter
ior, and Vice President of the Prus
sian Ministry of State.
The Congress will hold two plenary
sessions, one at the beginning and
the other at the close of the meeting.
These will be of general interest, and
will be intended principally for the
exchange of greetings from the offi
cial delegates. There will be seven
divisions of the Congress, and fhe
scientific discussions will take place
at these section metings. All but one
of the sections will be devoted to the
consideration of the tuberculosis
problem from a strictly scientific point
of view. The remaining section will
take up the problem from the the hy
gienic, social, industrial, ami economic
standpoint. This phase of the subject
has not been treated separately in the
programs of the previous internation
al Congresses, but the wide interest in
the preventive measures that are be
ing undertaken in this country, fully
justifies the devotion of a distinct
section to these interests.
Mr. Edward T, Dcvine of New
York, the chairman of this section,
has arranged a program of unusual
interest. The economic aspects of
tuberculosis will be taken up at the
opening session; and the phases of the
subject to be discussed include the
burdens entailed by the disease, on
individuals and families; on the med
ical profession; on industry; on relief
agencies; on the community, and on
social progress. The speakers will

University, Prof, Walter F. Wilcox
of Cornell, Mr. Sherman C. Kingsley
of Chicago, Dr. Martin W. Barr, Sup
erintendent of the Pennsylvania
School for the Fceble-Mindod. Mr.
Talcott William, of the Philadelphia
Press, has promised a paper on the
problem as it a fleets Philadelphia, his
subject being "The cost of n city's
ransom; an estimate of the expendit
ure which would lie required to con
trol tuberculosis in Philadelphia."
Mr. Homer Folks, Secretary of the
State Charities Aid Association of
New York, will discuss "Effective
control in small towns ami rural committees."
Under the general theme of "Ad
verse Industrial Conditions," the
topic to he discussed includes the in
cidence of tuberculosis according to
occupation, overwork and nervous
strain as factors, the effect of improve
ments in factory conditions on the
health of employees, and legitimate
exercise of the police power in pro
tecting the life and health of employ
ees. The speakers scheduled to take
part in these discussions include well
known specialists like Mr. Frederick
L. Hoffman of New Jersey, statis
tician of the Prudential Insurance

of the University of Wisconsin; Dr.
James Alex Miller, of New York; Mr.

state and municipal governments in
the control of tuberculosis; and Prof,
C. R. Henderson, of the University of
Chicago, who will discuss "Sickness
and Invalidism Insurance."
Discussions on the early rccogni
tion of tuberculosis and the after care
of persons in whom the disease has
been arrested will lead up to an inter
change of news on such projects as

ments in the homes, farm colonies,
etc. Among these who will contri
