"'People have a notion that TB'
is reaching a level of relative un-
importance, but I submit that a
disease which sickens 80,000 peo-
pie year in this country is still
a disease of serious import to us

From its former position of the
nation's number one cause of
death, killing 70.000 people a year,
TB has dropped to a death rate
of around 14,000 a year, Dr. Willis
remarked.

and and those in the lower in-
come bracket," Brazer said.
"The present tax structure is
extremely inequitable," Brazer
said. Even if we have a recovery,
we will find a deficit for the 1959
fiscal year which will run at least
$60 million.
"This is not because of an in-
crease in capital outlay or gen-
eral fund appropriation, but will
be caused by an increase of 70,-
000 more school children this year
than last and a reduction in sales
and other tax receipts.
Past Deficit General
"In the past, the deficit in the
school aid fund was made up from
the general fund," he added.
"Although some of us are dis-
appointed that the program
doesn't do much for local govern-
ment, the committee chose not to
take action on the relationship be-
tween state and local finance and
local non-property taxes.
"I doubt, though, that you will
get much done at the local level
until the state fiscal house is put
in order," he said.

TB Can Be Cured
"In fact, in the last decade, we
have made enough progress to
show that tuberculosis can be
cured and may be completely erad-,
icated in the future," Dr. Willis
said.
Dr. Willis remarked that ad-
vances in therapy for TB patients
have reduced the amount of time
patients spend in sanitoriums, the
number of relapses after the pa-
tient's release, and have increased
the effectiveness of the final cure:

Comments on Research
Commenting on the progress of
recent research, especially in the
development of possible anti-TB
vaccines, Dr. Willis especially cited
recent progress made in the use
of BC, a type of vaccine using
artificially weakened TB bacillae
which is much in use abroad but
not well accepted in this country.
He noted that new techniques
for counting bacillae enabled sta-
tistical methods to be used in
determining vaccination effective-
ness.

Prof. Inkeles, author of studies
on Russian national character
prior to his present analysis of
the industrial personality, said
his findings on laughter hold true
,in warm countries, such as Italy,
as well as cold countries, such as
Britain.
"The sun doesn't seem to in-,
,fluence happiness," he added.
"Although I don't dismiss cul-
turaldifferences," he said, "future
attitudes will be based primarily
on social-status position in indus-
trial society. There will be an ex-
traordinary number of pan-
human features due to the same
perceptions and patterns."
There are findings which in-
dicate this trend. The level of in-
dustrialization doesn't make much
difference in personal belief in life
after death.
