MARCHING ON ST.
The sun is shining brightly;
The wind is brisk and keen;
The flaunting colors lightly
Are tossing o'er the scene.
With bugles gayly blowing
And flag of green displayed,
The street is filled with marching men,
The Irish on parade!
They come with chargers prancing,
With lilting fife and drum;
They come with sabers glancing;
With dancing plumes they come.
They wear the verdant vesture
That covers hill and glade,
The color of undying hope,
The Irish on parade!
As breaks a gleam of glory
Q’er sullen skies and dun,
A bright thought transitory,
Reminder of the sun,
So break across the dreary
Routine of toil and trade
The life and light and music of
The Irish on parade!

Detailed recommendations for addi-
tional government hospital construc-
tion in various parts of the country
for former service men framed by a
conference of specialists on mental
diseases have been made public by the
Veterans’ Bureau. The proposed pro-
gram would include a total of 12,000
beds needed for the care of mental pa-

New Hampshire, and northern Con-
necticut towns was recommended to
replace the hospital now in use at
East Norfolk, Mass., while the use of
Fort Porter, at Buffalo, was suggest-
ed. Increase in the capacities of the
hospitals at Perryville, Md., and Gulf-
port, Mass.,, were recommended, to-
gether with the construction of a new
institution of 500 beds to be increased
later to 1,000 beds in District 7, com-
prising Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
Disapproval of the use of the hos-
pital at Maywood, Ill, was expressed
and a new hospital of 1, 000 beds, to be
increased to 1,500 beds, was urged for
District 8, comprising Michigan, Ill-
inois and Wisconsin.
A new hospital of 500 beds to be in-
creased to 1,000 beds, was urged for
District 9, comprising Iowa, Missouri,
Kansas and Nebraska, to replace the
present institution at Knoxville, Iowa.
A hospital of 500 beds was recom-
mended for District 10, comprising
Minnesota, North Dakota, South Da-
kota and Montana. A hospital of 250
beds, to be increased to 500 beds, was
suggested for District 13, comprising
Oregon, Idaho and Washington, which
would care for patients from the west-
ern part of the tenth district and the
northern part of district 12, compris-
ing California, Nevada and ’ Arizona.

SOME IMPORTANT FACTS.
Spraying Needs.—Get the spray
machine ready and buy materials for
spraying without further delay. One
never knows how soon the season will
open. Clean up the machine, repair
and replace broken or worn parts.
Right now is the time to prepare
against raids in the cabbage patch by
the cabbage root maggot. Through
the county agent, get tar pads to place
around each plant as they are planted
in the field, then watch the results. If
corrosive sublimate is preferred, or-
der it now. Either of these protect-
ive methods are better and easier to
put on than tar and sand or other ma-
terials that some truck growers like
Leg weakness in young chicks can
be avoided to a great extent if they
will be put on free range by the time
they are two weeks old at the latest.
A bulky ration not too high in protein
Many sheep producers do not real-
ize the importance of docking and
castrating lambs. This should be done
when the lambs are two to three
weeks of age and it will materially in-
crease the selling price at marketing
time. The department of animal hus-
bandry at State College will be glad
to furnish detailed information.
If you are not growing your own
plants, it is advisable to place your
crder at once with a green-house man
or plant grower in your section. Most
plant growers are sold out long be-
fore the demand ceases.
The addition of some mineral mat-
ter to the dairy cow’s ration during
the dry period is considered good prac-
tice by many dairymen, particularly
for high producers. Finely pulver-
ized rock phosphate (floats), at the
rate of half a pound per cow per day
along with the grain, is recommended
by several authorities as being the
most suitable mineral to feed.

$5,778 FOR THE POOR.
The new city administration of Lan-
caster has discovered that $6778 in
interest from a trust fund for the poor
of Lancaster, established by former
President Buchanan, a resident of
Lancaster, lies in the city’s general
funds account, and it will now be used
in relief work.
The fund in question has grown,
largely through other legacies, until
it amounts to $47,000. Some of the
interest has annually been used for
buying coal for the poor, but this un-
expended balance will now be used
for general relief work. ;

MORE INFORMATION FROM
STATE HEALTH DEPARTMENT
Although the diphtheria rate reach-
es its highest point in November and
December each year; the State Health
Department is keeping right after
control of the disease in this State.
Complete diphtheria control rests with
the doctors and the following bulle-
tin has been sent to every physician in
“A prompt clinical diagnosis of
diphtheria and full doses of antitoxin
should be given promptly.
“Don’t wait for laboratory reports;
antitoxin will have done no harm if
the case proves to be other than that
“Give antitoxin deep in the gluteal
muscle; more rapid absorption takes
place from the intramuscular injec-
tion than a subcutaneous one.
“In malignant cases seen late the
intravenous method of introduction of
antitoxin will be more effective.
“Antitoxin is made from horse se-
rum taken from an animal which has
been subjected to diphtheria toxin
treatment until it has reached a high
degree of immunity.
“Toxin-antitoxin is a mixture of
toxin and antitoxin with the toxin
slightly more than neutralized by the
antitoxin, but not destroyed to such
an extent as to prevent it from devel-
oping in the subject the antibodies of
protection, hence, toxin-antitoxin is
active and confers a probable perma-
nent immunity by establishing in the
subject the development of his own
protective material or antibodies. It
does to the person to whom it is giv-
en exactly what happens to the horse
which is under treatment in the la-
boratory for the securing of antitoxin.
“The Schick test has proven a posi-
tive procedure whereby immunity
may be determined.
“Those proven by the Schick test to
be susceptible to diphtheria can be
permanently immunized by the sub-
cutaneous introduction of toxin-anti-
toxin. It is given in three weekly
doses conveniently arranged in pack-
ages and the administration involves
no difficult technique.
“Antitoxin is furnished free by the
State Department of Health both in
curative and in immunizing packages.
“Schick material and toxin-antitox-
in is furnished through our division of
supplies at a nominal cost—a saving
of about 50 per cent. over commercial
prices. Individual package will cost
about 75 cents. If purchased in hos-
pital size it will cost about 52 cents
2515 cases of diphtheria were re-
ported to the State Health Depart-
ment in December, 1599 in January—
a decrease of 916 cases.
The rate per 100,000 population in
January, 1921 was 22.73 and in Jan-
uary, 1922 for the same population it
was 17.76. The following counties
had a rate higher than this State av-

Of the communities contributing to
this increased rate the most grievous
offenders were Reading with 35 gases;
Johnstown, 26 cases; Lancaster, 29;
Wilkes-Barre, 29. In none of these
communities were conditions allowed
to get beyond control of the local
“We believe the present methods of
diphtheria control are accomplishing
the desired end,” said Col. J. Bruce
McCreary, of the State Health De-
partment. “That the culturing of
school children is effective,” he con-
tinued “is evidenced by a report from
Arendtsville, Adams county, that up-
on the appearance of diphtheria in the
school there more than 300 children
were cultured and 28 positive carriers
of active diphtheria germs located.
They were immediately isolated and
treated and an epidemic was averted.”
Dr. Margaret Hughes Byron, resi-
dent physician of the Slatington farms
at Glen Mills, advised the State
Health Department that she had given
the Schick test to 433 girls, 79 of
them found to be susceptible to diph-
theria and have since received im-
munizing doses of toxin anti-toxin.
Col. McCreary says: “Diphtheria
can be controlled and encouraging indi-
cations of a determination to secure
complete control are displayed in
many sections of the State.”
