Thes., lobbyists are smart and well
trained, especially the high salaried
ones; and they know the details of
the legislative procedures, which I
discussed in last we k - letter. They
know the members and the legisla-
ture better than the members them-
selves: for they are on the job for
twenty-four months out of every
two years, whereas the members arc
here only five or six months evrry
It would take a book to discuss
fully the tactics employed by the
lobbyists in killing or passing legis-
.ation, and I cannot even begin in
the space given me here. However,
the article in the Reader's Digest
g.ve.^ a fairly good summary of the
maneuvers tn a general way. They
h.ivc almost tvery means at their
command from whiskey on up to
publicity in the big daily papers.
Only the people do not have
lobbyists here. The old people can-
not raise money to send big lawyers
h re to iobby for pensions. Nor can
'ney send big lobbyists here to fight
the other lobbyists working for the
Automobile Inspection Law.
T. B. ASSOCIATION
The peopl of Cherokee County
.;ve asked that wc start giving
e Patch test to school children as
'n as possibie. Many counties of
r.t- state have carried on patch
-L's:s for years. Our local Associa- I
< is making plans to start these
' sts during the month of March in '
everal schools, taking a grade or
ge group that our doctors feel is
most important to be checked, later ,
taking another grade.
Our ultimate goal is to have ^
every schoo] child in Cherokee '
County have the advantage of a
test foi tuberculosis in the coming :
year and that each first grade as it :
enters school be tested. This will '
tak time but we fcei it will be^
well worth while and will be ap-
preciated by the citizens of the
county. Children under fifteen are
ne\er taken in the mass surveys
and this is the only free check
available to those under fifteen.
Further announcements will be
made at a later date.
