Check-Ups, X-Ray Exams Yield
Decline In Tuberculosis Cases


A rmy Bomber Buns A fter


Five Die

Year-long check-ups and a system
of routine X-ray examinations for
every new student have yielded a
steady decline in the University's
tuberculosis incidence, Director War-
ren Forsythe of the Health Service
revealed yesterday.
Pointing to the '.68 per thousand
incidence rate discovered among Sep-
tember entrants this fall, Doctor For-
sythe compared this figure with the
15 cases per thousand found in draft
board physical examinations. "This
can be attributed to the increased
age of the selectees," he declared.
The University is one of the few
institutions of its kind in the nation
that require compulsory X-ray exam-
inations for its entire student body.
Over half of the country's 300 col-
leges and, universities have tuber-
culosis examinations in some form,
. but the high cost of X-rays have
limited their use to 32 schools.
The X-rays were first introduced
in 1935, and at that time the inci-
dence rate was 2.85 per thousand.
The elimination of active cases from
the University's enrollment has
dropped the rate to its present low
About 25% of the student body
have "healed" cases of the disease,,
Doctor Forsythe deblare4. Although
the childhood tuberculosis o these,
students is no longer' activn they

should pay particular attention tc
sufficient sleep and an adequate diet
Breaking the University's enroll-
ment down into geographical groups,
the Health Service has discovered a
much higher tuberculosis rate among
Oriental and Latin American stu-
"As far as the average student is
concerned," Doctor Forsythenoted,
"he should guard against exposure
to any known cases. Keeping these
'actives' out of the University has
been our share in protecting the
student body."
