State Joins Nation-Wide Drive Against Social Disease
FOUND TO BE
NOLAN COUNTY HEALTH
UNIT HOPES TO
AUSTIN — “The eradication
of syphilis is today’s major
health problem and our children
will hold us incompetent if we
fail to control syphilis within
this generation,” said Dr. Geo.
W. Cox, State Health officer.
Since inauguration of the na-
tional campaign, the public has
been made aware of much of the
truth about syphilis. While the
vast importance of syphilis in
general has 1>een stressed, fur-
ther emphasis needs to tie placed
on hereditary or prenatal syph-
ilis, one of the most readily pre-
ventable types of the disease.
Prenatal syphilis is an inno-
cently contracted form, trans-
mitted by an infected expectant
mother to her unborn child. The
disease in the child -can be pre-
sented in almost every instance,
provided the mother receives
proper treatment during preg-
nancy. Syphilis, in a sense, is
chivalrous; It deals more kindly
with women than with men. The
early signs of infection are us-
ually not manifest in women;
this is especially true during
pregnancy. Blood tests, there-
fore. are all the more essential
in the early recognition of syph-
ilis in women.

Gypsy Rose Gets Another Name
It has been determined that
syphilis, affects approximately
two to three and a half per cent
of the white children attending
hospital clinics. People should
appreciate also the fact that
many cases of syphilis are con-
fractfcd innocently, m marriage
and before birth. Syphilis in it-
self, is not a disgrace. Disgrace
lies rather in the failure of
people to take advantage of mod-
ern science and in failure to
assure an equal chance in life
for all of Texas’ children.
To eradicate prenatal syphilis
and thereby give the newborn
child its rightful heritage of a
sound mind and a sound body,
health authorities urge observ-
ance of the following measures:
(1) blood tests for syphilis, af-
fecting both parties who con-
template marriage; (2) a blood
test for syphilis on every expec-
tant mother, and (3) thorough
treatment if necessary for the
benefit of both mother and child.
Glenn Fitzgerald, son of Mr.
and Mrs. VV. H. Fitzgerald, and
Billy Bob Swaim, son of Mr. and
Mrs. W. R. Swaim, are the proud
owners of a power model mono-
plane which can fly fully a mile
horizontally and reach a height
of 300 feet on two eye-droppers
full of gasoline.
Truth of the matter has been
demonstrated at Sweetwater’s
Municipal Airport, where young
Fitzgerald probably will be an
assistant at the field, according
to Ray Baumgardner, manager.
The youths, not yet out of high
school, ordered a kit of materials
for the power model and put it
together. Fitzgerald said they
are going to design their next
model plane, and will guaran-
tee it to fly.
The model ship has a G-foot
wing span, a 13-inch propeller,
and a sixth horsepower gas
motor. It is supposed to run for
30 minutes on a tank of gas, but
the hoys are afraid of il flying
out of sight and becoming lost;
so they put in only a small
quantity of gas, and the ship
lands when the fuel runs out.
If landing is done in a weed
patch no harm results, the boys
said, but sometimes a rocky
landing sends it to the repair
Fitzgerald has two older broth-
ers in the flying profession.
