CLIFTON . : TEXA
Austin, Texas.—As the summer
season approaches, a word of warn-
ing is timely to prospective campers,
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, summer va-
cationists, fishermen, and others who
enjoy getting out into the open, rel-
ative to the possible dangers that
may be encountered from the stand-
point of contracting infection under
the changed environment. This is es-
pecially true of diseases that may be
transmitted through food and water-
Typhoid fever is a disease the
amount of which is greatest, as a rule,
where there is the least sanitation.
It is an unnecessary and preventable
disease. It is spread from person to
person by water, milk, flies and food.
Every case is contracted by taking
into the mouth some substance con-
taminated with typhoid organisms,
and these occur only in nature in the
bowel and bladder discharges of per-
sons sick with typhoid or from car-
riers, persons who have had typhoid
and who after recovery still harbor
the germs in their systems.
Persons planning a vacation or
trip where sanitation may not be rig-
idly enforced or where food handlers

Shortage of Meat
Brings High Price
The acuteness of the country’s
shortage of meat, especially pork,
continues to grow, according to ex-
it pert observers, and there is no im-
mediate relief seen for the consum-
ers. The higher prices have permitted
foreign countries to import meat in-
to the U. S. despite tariff duties. The
lack of meat is attributed to the need
of farmers to keep a large portion of
their animals for breeding in order to
restock herds depleted through the

Cork Trees Live
About 150 Years
When a cork oak, an evergreen that
is cultivated chiefly in Portugal and
Spain, is stripped of its bark not
more than once every eight to ten
years, the quality of the cork im-
proves with each stripping and the
tree may thrive for 150 year or more,
(he stripping of the cork trees us-
ually takes place in July and Aug-
ust. The Portuguese government has
only recently ruled that a tree in
that country can be stripped only at
