ANNUAL SALE OF CHRISTMAS STAMPS NOW UNDER WAY

The annual sale of Christmas seals under the auspices of the Oregon Tubercular Association is now on and everyone is urged to bear in mind this most worthy cause. Seal your Christmas packages with these Christmas seals and help to carry on the fight in Oregon.

Seals may be purchased at the post office lobby, the stores or of the school children. If you are not supplied, telephone Mrs. Dr. Conroy who has charge of the Medford distribution. Of the amount sold, 25 percent is used in this community and the balance in the state work. From the money thus raised the state association has, during the past year, carried on an intensive campaign in many parts of the state. This campaign consists of education by means of lectures and talks, literature, health plays, etc., health crusade work with 32,000 children, nursing ex-soldiers, cooperate with schools and universities in teaching public health nursing, organize county public health associations, support and furnish food for an open air school.

The “White Plague” takes 150,000 lives every year and it has ravaged the earth for over 2,000 years. Through the active effort on the part of the national and state associations the death rate has decreased 40 percent during the past 10 years. Last year about 700 Oregonians dies from this disease, while 6,500 of our state citizens have suffered from it.

Your generous purchase of seals this month will make possible:

More public health nursing demonstrations.

Sanitary and case finding surveys.

Tuberculosis clinics.

Campaigns for county tuberculosis hospitals.

Special school nursing demonstrations.

Popular educational campaigns against tuberculosis.

Realization of plans for a traveling clinic.

Development of modern health crusade.

Buys Christmas seals. Help us stamp out tuberculosis and win Oregon for good health.

LOCAL BRIEFS

Fully six thousand boxes of apples were piled out of doors in the storms and sunlight here near the local packing plant because every available storage was piled to capacity. Naturally some of the fruit was damaged. The speed in handling by the crew under Manager H. D. Reed has resulted in the entire crop of fancy fruit for shipment being saved. The local output will total about fifty cars and the last of the fruit will be shipped inside of two weeks. — Gold Hill News.
