VERNONIA EAGLE, VERNONIA, OREGON
MRS. LUTHER TO BE
HOSTESS TO HOME
YOU CAN HELP TO
WIN A WAR!—
HOW MANY of you would turn away
and refuse to help, if at this moment you
came face • to face with an opportunity to
save one human life? Iluw many of you
tvould shrug your shoulders and sidestep that
opportunity, aware that the life you might
have saved was ended because of your in
difference? How many of you, knowingly,
tvould accept the role of an involuntary killer ?
These questions insult your intelligence
and your instincts, for none of you would be
so inconceivably heartless. No normal per
son would hesitate to save a fellow being
from a death if it was in his power to pre
vent it, from injury that might bring a
lifetime of suffering.
There is death, not brought by violence,
which may be cheated as definitely by you
as though you were to save a friend from
drowning this minute. There is suffering that
need not be inflicted ®n thousands of Amer
icans, most of them young, if you take the
most simple action against it. That suffering
and death is brought about by tuberculosis.
The germ that causes tuberculosis was
discovered within the lifetime of many of
us—just 55 years ago. But, in the 39 years
since 1900, the toll of lives taken by this
disease annually in the United States has

been reduced more than 70 per cent. That
is what the mobilization of understanding,
sympathetic people has accomplished against
an enemy whose defeat is assured if the
battle continues as it is going.
Your own tuberculosis association here
in Vernonia is in the thick of the fight. Be
hind the lines are clinics and laboratories in
which the methods of this warfare constantly
are studied in order that they may be made
more effective. Behind the clinics are hos
pitals and sanatoria where 90,000 beds are
available to care for the afflicted.
From what source does the ammunition
come for obtaining final victory against the
enemy that is weakened but still dangerous?
It comes from you who do not turn your
backs on opportunities to save human life.
It comes from you who take action when
death is there to mock your heedlessness. It
comes from you who, with your pennies and
your dollars, buy the little Christmas Seals
on which success depends in this fight.
These seals are on sale all over Oregon
and will be until Christmas day. They
should be available to you in every com
munity, in every town and city. The money
you pay for them goes into the battle against
tuberculosis in our community and through
out the nation. It is a battle for the pro
tection of your own families against a di
sease that strikes down most of its victims
between the ages of 15 and 45. It is esti
mated that there are more than 500,000 tu
bercular persons, that is persons with active
tuberculosis, in the United States alone.
The prevention of tuberculosis is as im
portant as its cure. Modern methods in
control include an onslaught directed to find
ing the enemy before it makes itself known
by outward signs. At first there is little to
warn that the germs have begun to do their
damage. Even a physician cannot hear sounds
in the chest that might not be normal. The
hope of getting well lies in beginning treat
ment early. Delay is dangerous. No one
should neglect going to a doctor or a clinic
if he has any of the warning signs, excess
fatigue, fever, pain in the chest. The instru
ment that makes it possible to discover tu
berculosis in ifs very earliest stage is the
X-ray. In many colleges and high schools
students are X-rayed regularly because is is
known that at their age tuberculosis is like
ly to show its early signs.
The Christmas Seal is the symbol of
hope for the afflicted and of safety
for all of us whose health is protected by an
unceasing campaign for the ultimate eradi
cation of tuberculosis. You would save a life
if given the chance? Here is that chance.
Pay for some Christmas Seals, as many of
them as you can, and use them in proof of
your enlistment for the duration of this war.
It is a war to save life, not to take it.
