Mail Tribune 100

Sept. 25, 1915


The high school enrollment has continued to increase during the last week and has now reached 296. Among this number there are eight post-graduates, members of last year's senior class. All of the departments are well filled. The commercial department, however, seems to be the most popular, as it is filled to its capacity, all of the typewriters being in use throughout the entire day. A class in commercial law has been organized, and 26 people have enrolled in this course.

An organization known as the Student's Aid association has been perfected among the faculty. The object of the association is to assist those pupils who are desirous of working before and after school or who, because of their financial condition, are compelled to work their way through school, to secure positions. Mr. Gressly and Mr. Hull have been put in charge of the employment of boys, and Miss Carpenter and Miss Mitchel in charge of the employment of girls. The two committees solicit the help of the general public in making the work of the association practical. If those who have positions which could be filled by high school boys or girls, either in nature of small odd jobs or more permanent positions, will call the high school office and leave the information with the principal, it will greatly facilitate the working out of the plans for this organization. Already several pupils have secured positions through the help of these committees.


PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 25 — Physicians who have spent years in the study of tuberculosis declared today at the closing of the seventh annual meeting of the American Association of Clinical Research at the Hahnemann Medical college, that the care received by Dr. Jefferson D. Gibson of Denver, Colo., retiring president of the association, is one that in ten years ought to place tuberculosis among the relatively non-fatal diseases.

Dr. Gibson mentioned the cure in his address opening the meeting on Thursday, and described it in detail in a paper at today's session. It provides a cure by adding X-rays, ozone and static electricity to the climatic and dietetic treatment now common in tuberculosis hospitals. By this method, he claims, the presence of the disease can be detected in healthy, robust persons even before the well known symptoms begin to form, and cures be effected in advanced cases in remarkably short time.
