PAGE EIGHT HEPPNER GAZETTE TIMES, HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, NOV. 10, 1927. Protect the Children by Keeping School Open From SUte Board of Health. Boards of health and school direc or are often at a loss whether to close schools or to keep them open in the presence of an outbreak of communicable disease. The problem is not so difficult with the milder in fections, as public panic in the pres ence of these diseases is seldom great enough to force school closure. With the continued high prevalence of diphtheria, scarlet fever or infantile paralysis in a community, the health officials are often obliged to consider whether or not schools should be closed. One may well e?k, here, what forces health authorities to close schools in such circumstances. In general the answer is the pressure of public opinion. The public can scarcely be blamed for wanting schools closed. They have been led, for years, to believe that the closing of schools would stop an outbreak of contagious dis ease. School superintendents, how ever, are beginning to see that the closed school is not an efficient bar rier to the spread of an epidemic. Lay members of boards of health and some physicians yet believe that there is no other way to control outbreaks of contagious diseases. Under such conditions, with public opinion clam oring that "something be done" one can hardly blame the press for fol lowing what would seem sound, name ly public opinion. It is unfortunate when the officials of a community do not act together. The community in which the educational and health authorities work together for the common good is fortunate. In such a community, you will find, even in time of panic over an outbreak of contagious disease, that the thinking people, including the physicians and the press, will support the opinion and actions of its school and health authorities. But what can be done in an out break of a dangerous communicable disease to control the situation, if schools are not to be closed? Seek out the sources of infection in the I community, lhese sources can be discovered with the aid of the physi cian and the health department. With the schools open this last is much easier from every point of view than witn tne scnool closed. All absentees are readily noted and their physical condition can readily be determined. The physicians can ' interviewed in regard to cases under their care. Every child enter ing school mornings or afternoons, with the slightest suspicion of symp toms can be segregated until exam ined by a competent person. With schools open, school, physician and health officials co-operating, a daily watch can be kept on comu..i:icabie disease suspects, both in the school and at home. Health authorities realize that it is not enough to isolate, quarantine and placard in an attempt to control contagion. Active effort must be made to locate, if possible, the source of infection. People, nci things, spread disease ordinarily. t.e dot ing of schools in time of epidemics or threatened epidemics, is usually the result of well-intended but poorly informed public opinion. CAMPFIRE NEWS. The three groups of Camp Fire Girls combined to give a candy sale at the Lyceum number Tuesday eve ning. Committees of two from each of the groups were appointed to act on advertising, selling and sacking. Due to a misunderstanding, the sil ver tea to be given by the Nawetam- patimmin girls at P. T. A.

Full credit, except at home, perhaps has never been given American arms in that world conflict. Nevertheless, a stime sums up the part we played, there will be no wonder that a nation such as ours should establish itself as a power for good and be an acknowledged leader. Annually, we pause to pay tribute to all the soldier dead in that great war. No lines are drawn, our Allies, as well as the enmy's dead, sharing in the tribute of the day. First honor of course to our own a full appre ciation of all they did, upholding the flag and spreading the true spirit of Democracy at the greatest cost man can pay the su preme sacrifice. M. D.
