The Texas Anti-Tuberculosis
i.range has just completed the
busiest year it has had since its
organization 10 years ago, par-
ticularly the nursing and the dis-
pensary service. A summary of
the principles points follow:
Visits to patients homes made
by our nurses increased 151 per
emf over 1920 and the number
of eases on the books increased
139 per cent.
Attendance at the clinics in-
creased 9(1 per cent, the number
of new patients 63 per cent, the
number of new active eases 40
per cent over 1920.
The Modern Health Crusade
was carried on in some of the
country schools, but nothing was
done in the city schools.
With the asistance of Mr. R.
< . Ortega, Mexican Lecturer of
the Texas Public Health Associ-

where nearly 20.000 Mexicans
