Page 1004 - ... that is conducive to the public welfare. Only in this particular instance has it allowed itself to become the mouth-piece of principles to which it is in general opposed, that is to say, principles and measures whereby the good of the people at large and the progress and welfare of mankind are hindered, and the lives of individual American citizens endangered. This particular newspaper is independent of any political party, or professional or religious association which might prejudice its point...
Page 1004 - General of the Navy, by General Walter Wyman of the Public Health and Marine Hospital Service, by Dr. Harvey W. "Wiley of the Bureau of Chemistry, by Governors of States, by the Conference of State and Territorial Boards of Health, by the United Mine Workers of America, by the National Grange, by the Republican and Democratic platforms, and by numerous other organizations. What is the principle of this bill which is advocated by thousands of men trained in medicine or sanitary science and interested...
Page 1006 - Welch. Gladly do we acknowledge him as our leader. To accuse the president and members of the American Medical Association of selfish motives in advocating the establishment of a Federal Department of Health is absurd. If there ever was an unselfish movement inaugurated, it is this one. It is a movement by physicians for the reduction of disease which, ipso facto, mea.ns a movement against their financial interests. The writer is a member of...
Page 1005 - Wm. H. Welch, MD, LL. D., president of the American Medical Association. Those who know Dr. Welch and even those who only know of him, would justly think it absurd if I should see the need to say even a word in defense of this master of medical science. To us it is indeed difficult to...
Page 1004 - The writer cannot help thinking that this powerful news organ has not informed itself thoroughly of the real purpose and function of a federal department of health, and in its attack upon a large body of men such as compose the American Medical Association, the American Public Health Association, the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the various medical academies of the country, it is certainly misguided....
Page 1246 - Genuine and innocent wit like this is surely the flavor of the mind. Man could direct his ways by plain reason, and support his life by tasteless food ; but God has given us wit, and flavor, and brightness, and laughter, and perfumes, to enliven the days of man's pilgrimage, and to charm his pained steps over the burning marl.—SIDNEY SMITH.
Page 1146 - C. for twenty minutes, then incubating at body temperature for eighteen to twenty-four hours. As an alternative procedure, the infected milk tube may be gradually brought to the boiling point of water in a water bath, kept there for three minutes, then incubated as above. By so doing, all bacteria not in the spore state are killed and the development of whatever spores may be present into vegetative cells is unrestrained by the presence of non-spore-forming organisms. Those cultures containing gas...
Page 1022 - You would of course have plenary authority over all the nurses, and I think I could secure you the fullest assistance and co-operation from the medical staff, and you would also have an unlimited power of drawing on the Government for whatever you thought requisite for the success of your mission.
Page 1194 - All this cooperation has resulted without one complaint of interference, usurpation, or weakening in any manner the unity and the sanctity of the home. I emphasize this fact not so much to strengthen the report of the nurses as to bring out clearly the degree to which cooperation of the school with the home is possible, and more especially to check, if possible, the growing tendencyto-day to acknowledge that the home life has disappeared.
