Fear of Disease
KIT'S old-fashioned to be afraid of
tuberculosis," states Dr. H. E.
Klelnschmidt, director of health
education of the National Tubercu
losis Association. "The present gen
eration is coming to know that many
of the beliefs of their fathers are
"There wag a time, not a genera
tion ago, when the fear of tubercu
losis among the general public
amounted to en unreasoning phobia.
based on the belief that it was
hereditary and therefore a family
taint, and that It was necessarily fa
tal. Often this dread was so wide
spread as to result in opposition to
the building of sanatoriums. People
thought the air of the neighborhood
would be contaminated. Pedestri
ans sometimes took detours to avoid
these Institutions. In one ignorant
community, amoke blown toward
the town from the chimneys of th
Institution almost provoked a panic
because It was believed filled with
"Today much of this fear has
been dispelled by a more general
understanding of just how tuber
culosis is contracted. We know that
In most instances the germ passes
from the sick to the well who are
in close contact often' in the same
family circle. With proper precau
tlons, which can be explained by any
doctor or nurse, there need be little
danger of this Infection. Now that
people no longer dread tuberculosis
with the old horror, they are more
willing to take the steps which not
only mean adequate treatment for
the patient, but security from the
disease to those who surround him
In daily life."

New Bulletin on Virus Troubles
Gives Effect of Mosaics on

ing in potato production, especially
for seed purposes, this new bulletin
by M. B. McKay and T. P. Dykstra
is considered valuable.
Definite experiments to And out
the most practical method of elim
inating virus diseases from seed
plots showed that the tuber-unit
method of roguing diseased plants
from seed plots is the most effective
on a large scale. By this means
the cut pieces from each tuber are
planted consecutively in the row in
the private seed plot of the grower.
When disease shows up in one hill,
all the hills from that tuber are re
moved whether they show disease
or not at that time.
The tests showed reduction in
yield amounting to as high as 73
per cent by weight in the case of
the spindle tuber disease, 50 per
cent with crinkle mosaic, and 19
per cent with interveinal mosaic.
The various virus diseases were
found to differ in methods of trans
mission from plant to plant Some
plant aphids will transmit some of
the disease but not others, while at
least one kind, rugose mosaic, was
fund to pass from plant to plant
under insect proof cages.
Studies of potato varieties show
ed them to vary somewhat In sus
ceptibility to virus diseases, and
the Irish Cobbler variety was found
to possess apparent immunity or
high resistance to the mild mosaic.
Experimental work is still continu
ing on these diseases throughout
