Campaign Under
Way for Sale of
Tuberculosis Seals
Health Unit Starts
Drive to Boost
County Over Top
To fight the enemy from within
the Morrow County Health assoc
iation Monday launched the an
nual tuberculosis seal sale to se
sure funds for carrying on the
battle another year. Under the di
rection of Mrs. J. O. Turner, pres
ident of the county unit, seals were
mailed to scores, of citizens with
the hope that the response will be
generous and the work not handi
capped by lack of funds.
"Total war isn't total war unless
it includes a continued vigorous
attack on tuberculosis," states
Mrs. Sadie Orr Dunbar, executive
secretary of the Oregon Tuberculo
sis association. "For the first time
in nearly 20 years we face the pos
sibility that Oregon's record of a
continued downward trend in its
tuberculosis death rate may be re
versed," she said.
"Wartime living has introduced
the conditions under which tuber
culosis thrives. It has brought bad
housing conditions and has placed
many persons into jobs for which
they are. not physically fitted, with
the attendant danger of nervous
exhaustion which makes them eas
ier prey for the disease."
Mrs. Dunbar points out that tu
berculosis robs the war effort of
countless thousands of man hours
stating that it strikes hardest be
tween ages of 15 to 45, the group
that contributes both the armed
s ervices and war production, "If

health associations are to carry on

disease, we must have the financial

There will be no let-up on the
drives for old metal, rubber, silk

of the county salvage committee,
told Heppner Lions club Monday.
"While the drives already con

"the wcik will have to continue

Not to bo outdone by other
schools, the- lone school this week
sent in a contribution of $38.12 to
the Morrow county USO fund. This
is only the beginning of the lone
ubscription to the fund, according
to J. Fred Stilwell
chairman of the
drive in that district
but he indi
cated that the lone school doesn't
propose to be outdone by other
schools by comparison.
It will be recalled that Mr. Stil-

pudsuits aiding the war campaign
directs the work of the lone Com-
munity chuich, was one of the larg-
St individual contributors to the
October scrapiron drive. He stated
