A few reasons why we should build
an Eastern Oregon Tuberculosis San
atorium:
Geographically about two-thirds o f
the state o f Oregon lies east o f the
Cascade mountains. More than 175,-
000 people live in this territory. For
the last six years an average of 79
; per year o f these Eastern Oregon
1 people have died of tuberculosis.
The National Tuberculosis associ­
ation, which has had extensive survey
experience, states
that a careful
search in any community will un­
cover approximately seven living
active cases o f tuberculosis for each
annual death. There are then, with­
out doubt, some 500 active cases of
tuberculosis in Eastern Oregon.
The chances for recovery o f any
tuberculosis patient are greatly in-

sanitorium in Salem.
This institution, which has in­
creased its capacity from time to
time, has still only 190 beds with
which to serve the needs o f the
whole state. It has always a long
waiting list (44 on September 14,
1926). In the last 6 years it has
admitted 933 patients, while, en­
tirely for lack of space, 422 other
patients who also applied for care
were never admitted at all. These
patients who did not get in would

It must be remembered that the
location for this sanitorium will be
selected by the State Board o f Con­
trol, that it will admit only patients
who have been in Eastern Oregon
at least a year, an that every san­

ern Oregon will relieve the pressure
at Salem just that that much and so
will help the Western part o f the
