Stresses Need for Combating
Tuberculosis Among
"Stepping Stones Toward Better
Health" was the subject of a lec-
ture given by Mrs. Blanche R. De-
Koning, director of the Anti-Tu-
berculosis association of Grand
Rapids yesterday morning.
"In combating disease too little
attention is directed toward peo-
ple between 15 and 25 years of
age because in this group it is as-
sumed that every one is enjoying
health and strength," stated Mrs.
DeKoning. However, in this group
the tuberculosis death rate has
not been decreased and it has been
found that frequently during this
age infections begin which cause
trouble in later life she pointed
out. After considering for some
time the best way to do something
about this problem the Grand
Rapids Board of Education and
the Anti-Tuberculosis society de-
cided to make a health survey in
the public high schools of the city,
Questionnaires Circulated
"For this purpose," continued the
speaker, "questionaires a b o u t
health needs of the school were
circulated. The students were
given medical examinations, a
study was made as to the causes
of absences, and class rooms were
checked up on to see that they
were properly lighted, heated and
ventilated. Of those taking thie
medical examinations 13 per cent
were found to show a positive re-
action to tuberculin skin tests, be-
sides many other students were
found to have weak eyes, bad teeth,
and nose and throat troubles.
Over $17,500 Saved
"Just the service rendered by the
physician in this project would
have cost the community more
than $17,500 for private examina-
tions," stated Mrs. DeKoning in re-
ferring to the amount saved the
community of Grand Rapids. Be-
sides while the examinations were
being made it also taught 331 stu-
dents to go to their family physi-
cians or specialists, and five or six
hundred to improve their daily
living habits. This work stimu-
lated private medical practiceeand
took nothing from it, Mrs. DeKon-
ing explained.
"Results were found to be high-
ly beneficial; and we hope this is
just one of the stepping stones
across the river of ignorance to
the house of perfect health on the
oppisite bank," Mrs. Dekoning con-
Targis Goes Down After British
Ship Saves All on Board.
(By Associated Press)
LONDON, July 19.-The German
merchantman Targis, en route from
Valparaiso to Hamburg and Ant-
werp, which was abandoned Thurs-
day by crew and passengers after a
fire aboard, sank at 1:45 a. m. today
a radio dispatch to Lloyd's at Cape
Race, Newfoundland, today said.
The 11 passengers and crew and
officers, numbering 53 in all, are
aboard the British steamer Rangi-
tata, en route to Southampton
from Wellington, New Zealand,
which stood by for nearly a day to1
make the rescue and until all
chance of salvage was past. The
ship sank in 33:45 north latitude1
and 50:45 west longitude, about

1,500 miles east of New York.
The master of the Rangitata ra-
dioed the Associated Press the fol-
lowing account of the disaster.
"While we were steaming in fine
weather on the morning of July 17j
we observed on the horizon a largeI
cloud formation looking like a wa-
terspout. At 10:15 a. m. an S. 0. S.

NEW YORK, July 19.-An endur-

He is here to offer his antique
body for examination by scientists

of autobiography for a considera-

his laurels.
"I am going to live as long as
the world lasts," he declared.
Among the items of his shopping

them to replace his third natural

De Morpurgo Bows Before Lott;
Allison, Van Ryn Win
in Doubles Match.
(By Associated Press)
A U T E U I L, France, July 19.-
America overcame a fighting Ital-
ian tennis team today to enter the
challenge round for the Davis cup.
Adding two more victories to the
one achieved yesterday in the open-
ing match of the interzone final,
the United States forces chopped up
the three victories necessary to
clinch the series. Tomorrow's sin-
gles can not affect the result and
the Americans will clash with the
French for the trophy here next
Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
As usual, however, the south Eu-
ropeans upset all the locker room
Baron Humbert de Morpurgo, who
many hereabouts had believed
might win from George Lott of Chi-
cago, was beaten by scores of 3-6,
9-7, 10-8, 6-3, in a match which'
was interru'pted by darkness yes-
terday with the Amercan leading
at two sets to one.
The Trieste nobleman, 'Placido
Gaslini, in a last minute shift to
the doubles line-up gave the crack,
American combination of John Van
Ryn and Wilmer Allison, one of the+
hardest tussles they had had in
many a day.
The match went to five sets, pro-
vided some brilliant and some spot- I
ty tennis, and ended with the
Americans on top by scores of 5-7,
6-2, 6-4, 1-6, 6-3.1
Tomorrow, in the anti-climax,
John Doeg, of Santa Monica, Calif.,
will be substituted for A 11 i s o n
against de Morpurgo and Lott will
face Georgio Destifani who forced
Allison to five hard sets yesterday.
Wind, Rainstorm Sweep
Japan WithHeavy Toll
(By Associated Press)
TOKIO, July 19.-Thirty known
dead, scores missing and injured,
and immense property damage was
the known toll today of the ty-
phoon and rainstorm which swept
over Loochoo and Kiushiu islands
in th southern part of the empire
Thousands of persons were made
homeless when the storm, travel-
ing 100 miles an hour, destroyed
hundreds of dwellings. The wind
swept over the islands, crossed the
straits and roared into Korea, leav-
ing destruction in its path.

A train was wrecked and 20 per-
sons injured, and reports said a
village of 300 was buried in a.land-

He has endured 12 wives and 6
wars. He outlived 11 wives and now
is wedded to a woman 90 years his
junior, who he left in Istanbul while
he makes his American tour.
Of his 36 children all are dead

was born when he was 96. He has
no idea how many grandchildren,
great-grandchildren and later gen-

His war record, he said, began
with a campaign against Napoleon
in Syria. He fought against the
Greeks and in four wars against
the Russians. In the last one, when
he was 103 years old, he was an
artilleryman; that is, he carried
field pieces on his back through
mountain passes.
Carrying things on his back was
his forte, he said, for between wars
he was a heavy-duty porter in Con-!

Former Soviet Charge d'Affaires
at Paris Testifies Before
Investigation Committee. i
(By Associated Press)I
NEW YORK, July 19.-Charges of]
Gregory Dessedovsky, former Sovi-
et charge d'affairs at Paris a n d
Tokio, that the Moscow government
planned to spend vast sums to fo-
ment revolution in the United
States, were placed before the spe-3
cial House Communist Investigat-]
ing committee today by police in-
spector John A. Lyons of the Radi-
cal bureau.
The charges were contained in an
article by Dessedovsky printed in a
Jewish newspaper last March. The
former diplomat, who was refused
entry into the country accused the
Amborg Trading company of car-..
rying on propaganda work besides
being a commercial agency of the
Soviet Union.
High officials, of the Amborg
company, the articles said, were
sent here in the guise of commer-'
cial agents and were instructed to
permit Soviet agents to draw funds
for propaganda.
"Directors of the Amborg are sent
to New York usually under a dis-
guise," Dessedovsky wrote, adding
that he was appointed to the di-
rectorate of the concern and in-
structed to act as an unofficial am-
bassador. He was refused admit-
tance by the federal government
because of his political connections
with the Soviet.I
The Soviets planned, the article
continued, to lay the ground work
for a revolution in the "12,000,000
discontented negroes and farmers
in the United States."

With Questions as Naval
Pact is Read.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, July 19.-Ratifi-
cation of the London naval limita-
tions agreement early next week
seemed assured tonight as the op-
position ended its speech-making
and permitted the text of the treaty
'to be formally approved.
The end of the stubborn fight
waged by the militant band under
Senator Johnson, Rep., California,
was heralded as the only two
amendments offered to the treaty
were shouted down without record
Johnson started today's session
with the resumption of the contin-
uous debate carried on by the
treaty foes for the last three days,
but his voice was hoarse, and after
a short address he yielded for the
consideration of the text of the
Read Pact
One by one the 26 articles of the
pact were read and late in the day
they were completed.
Chairman Borah of the foreign
relations committee, who was in
charge of the treaty then offered
the resolution of ratification.
He assured Senator Johnson that
he had had no intention of seeking
to waive the rules and would take
it up in regular session on Monday.
The rules require the resolution to
lie over a day.
Three days of continued debate
carried on by the group of oppon-
ents had obviously tired them.
Some gave notice today to their
leaders they could go on no longer
and the end of the fight against
the treaty was obviously at hand.
No Agreements Made
No agreements or understandings
had been made when Johnson end-
ed his speech, but it was conceded
by the opponents that they are
fighting a losing fight.
An overwhelming majority will
support the resolution of ratifica-
tion when it comes to a vote next
week. However, more than a dozen
reservations are pending to be act-
ed upon and the foes still may de-
bate these, prolonging the contest.
Sixty-two senators answered the
opening roll call today which lead-
ers believed assured a quorum un-
til the end.

Ratification Assured
