Equal Opportunity Needed in Brazil

"I think that in Brazil it is a ques-
tion of giving opportunity and edu-
cation to all classes and only through
this can there be a great improve-
ment in the standard of living and

Adalberto Severo da Costa of Rio

"A society is good only when it
gives opportunity to all with capa-
cities. The. state should help poten-
tial persons,"
In reference to the progress made
by the Public Health Service in Bra-
zil, Dr. Severo said a project is now
under way, involving trillions of dol-
lars, for cleaning up the badly mal-
aria-infested Amazon and San Fran-
cisco Rivers, both rich in resources.
The United States Government
has offered to spend millions on
this project with the stipulation
that the Brazilian government
spend an equal amount, he said.
The Amazon River valley, the orig-
inal home of the rubber tree, is rich
in rubber trees, and the San Fran-
cisco River valley is one of the rich-
est places in the world for iron and
quartz deposits.
The problem of yellow fever, Dr.
Severo said, has been completely
eradicated but malaria in the less
civilized parts of the country is still
a major problem of Brazil and much
work, such as the draining of swamps
and rivers, is being done.
"The public health systems of Bra-
zil and the United States are very
similar," he continued, "for since
1925 Brazilian doctors have been sent
to the United States for study of its
medical progress, and American doc-
tors have also been sent to study in
In reference to races of Brazil,
he commented, "In Brazil the dif-
ferent p'opulations of the Indians,
the Negroes, the Portuguese, Ger-
mans, etc. have intermingled to
form a mixed population with no
racial prejudice. We have a good
life and there are no racial or
religious conflicts between the dif-
ferent classes.''
Speaking of the economic and edu-
cational development of lower clas-
ses, he asserted, "There should be a
slow progression of development, for
a person's customs and life cannot
be changed too abruptly. There is a
psychological problem of the spiritual
or religious confict.
"The jungle Indian could be put
to work ion a small farm, and then
gradually be progressed in his work
from a small town to a city. The
changed standard of life would give

hinm education and opportunity,"
Ii'. Sever, said.
"Religion is important for the
lower classes, who as yet have not
had a chance for education, for it
teaches selfcontrol and educates
them to a certain degree in music,
science, geography, philosophy, and
teaches them to Lie a part of the
He explained that Mussolini car-
ried out a wide sanitary engineering
and educational program by draining
the malaria-infested swamps of Agro
Pontino, an area of about 550 kilom-
eters around Rome, and the national
government of Brazil from 1943 to
1940 carried out a similar project by
rebuilding the swamps of Baixada
Flumenese, a region of about 17,000
kilometers around Rio de ,Janeiro.
"After this program, the food
production of Baixada Flumenese,
an important food source for Rio,
increased 110%. The government
drained the swamps, cultivated the
land and divided it into small
farms and sild them at low prices,
to be paid on an installment plan.
"This program was supervised by
Dr. Barros Barreto, who studied in
the United States, specializing in in-
dustrial hygiene, and who now is the
director of the Pan-American Medi-
cal Society.
"The Brazilian governin nt
spends $17,000,000 annually on its
public health system. There are
350 districts iiiuder government
sanitary direction, 54 health ser-
vice centers in the small towns and
54 small niedical posts in the farm

Dr. Severo, who is also working
with Dr. B. Jimenez of the Health
Service on allergy and the prepara-
tion of antigens, expects to leave soon
for Baltimore to study syphilitic
treatment with Dr. Eagel and Dr.
