POLLUTION OF THE GREAT

Dr. Blue Shows Over 10,000,000 Pas

Each Year by More Than 1,000
By Associated Press.
Washington, Dec. 19. —Pollution of
the Great and tributary rivers, is
becoming a serious menace to health,
according to the report yesterday
of Surgeon General Ko, er Blue, of the
Public Health service. He points out
that about 16,000,000 passengers are
carried each year over the Great Lakes
and that more than 1,600 vessels use
these waters. "It 'becomes apparent,
therefore," Dr. Blue declares, "that
these inland vessels play an important
role in the maintenance of the high
typhoid fever rate in the United States.
"The degree of pollution of the
Great Lakes and rivers contributary
toereto is becoming a serious question.
These large bodies of water are constant
ly becoming more polluted, thus lessen
ing tlheir value as a source of water
supply. Practically all of thee vessels
secure the water used aboard for all
purposes by -pumping from the lake."
It is recommended that water so
taken be purified before used for drink
Dr. Blue details the work of the
medical officers under him for the year
in eradicating plague, investigating
tuberculosis, in making special inquiries
into epidemics of typhoid fever and
Public health officers who examined
conditions relative to the effect on per
sons w'ho come in contact with migra
tory tonsumptives found little reason to
believe that such contact has proved
injurious. He points out again that in

not out the claims made by Dr.
r. F. Fried ma mi for a specific for tuber
culosis. Investigation of the Von Ruck
treatment for the same disease, he an
nounces, is incomplete.
Speaking of typhoid Or. Blue savs
that although its prevalence in this
country is being gradually reduced and
the rate JS not more than one-half of
what it was thirty years ago, it is still
higher than for some other advanced
countries. The urgent need at present
is tor rural sanitation. .Must American
cities show an appreciation of the wav
to deal with typhoid.
Study of tile use of drugs in this
country, where anti-narcotic legislation
has made statistics available, Dr. Blue
says, leads to the belief that the esti
