Grand Rapids Healthy.
Grand Rapids, Mich., is the health
iest place in the United States, ac
cording to the weekly health index
issued by the Department of Com
merce for the week ending July 29.
The percentage of deaths in urand
Rapids was 5.8 per one thousand in
habitants, the smallest percentage of
any city reporting. Omaha had a
bad week with a percentage of 13.5.
Fall River, Mass., and the highest
rate of deaths with a -percentage per
thousand inhabitants of 17.3.
While the above report gives
Grand Rapids a healthy week, the
table of life expectation, prepared
from the recent census, shows that
people live longer in Kansas than
they do in any other state, while
Washington offers the best chance
among the cities for a prolonged ex
istence. Even in Washington where
life is probably prolonged because of
the leisurely existence led by capital
residents, the average maximum of
life is 53.83 years for white females.
Pittsburgh's smoky atsmophere in
terferes with life there and it foots
the list with an average life expecta
tion for white males of 42.16 and
50.42 years for white females. Again,
in Pittsburgh, it will be noticed that
women live longer than men.
In the state of Kansas, which
headt the list, the average life is
59.73 years for white males and
60.89 for white females. Wisconsin
ranks next with a maximum average
for white males of 58.77 years and
tor white temaies .oi ou.u years.
The expectation for life through
out the country is 55.23 for white
males and 57.41 for white females.
The average maximum life for negro
males in the large cities is only 37.92,
or 13 years less than the expectation
of life for white males in the same
localities. For negro females life ex
pectation is 40.28 years, as compared
with 54.77 for white females.
Michigan Near Top.
Michigan ranks near the head of
the list, with the expectation for life
for males being 55.07 and for fe
males 55.94 years. In Detroit the
expectation of life for males is 52.03
years, while for females it is 53.43.
The expectation for life in some of
the western: states, notably Ne
braska, is not published.
Uncle Sam's publications furnish
tome unique information. For ex
ample, it is ' announced these are
1,877,725 people engaged in the
building trades of the country and
f these only 731 are women. Here
is clearly a department of industry
which women have not yet invaded.

Hongkong. Aug. 7. (By A. P.
with casualties now etumaica at

the full extent of the typhoon and
tidal wave which last Wednesday

north of here.
Two British tteauiert had been
reported ashore and today it was
learned that a third, bound from
Hongkong to Shanghai, was wrecked

Mingled With Debris.
In the native quarters hundreds of

that more than 75 per cent of the
eitv'i huilditiff were destroyed, in
cluding the silk knitting factories and
the old German consulate.
The American consulate and the
Standard Oil company' godown, or
warehouse, were slightly damaged.
Ghoul-like, some Chinese attempt

Legion Official Would Have

Chicaeo. Ausr. 7. fBv A. P.I '
Col. A, A. Sprague. chairman of the
American Legion's national rehabil

Brig. Gen. Sawyer, President Hard

over the hospital care given wound
Col. Sprague made public his let

ordinator of the hospitalization
board. ' .
The letter takes issue with state
ments made by Gen. Sawyer in reply
to previous communications from
the legion official as printed in the
The letter in part follows:
" 'The American public should
know the situation as it really ex
ists,' you write, and then you go on
to itate that there are S0 govern-!

pacity of 28,412 beds, 10,191 of which
are unoccupied. This latter asser
tion has been given wide national
publicity as a denial that further
hospital construction is necessary.
Not All Beds Available.
"The impression is gained from
your statement that these beds' are
available for sick and disabled serv
ice men. On the face of the report
which the veterans' bureau publishes
biweekly, containing this informa
tion, it states in capital letters,
'This report is to be used for admin

to mean that all are available on ac

of whom are tubercular. It is for
these men that we demand the best

Three Catholic tlstert in charge

of the Missions Etrangeret de Paris
from Bishop Arayssac of the Mis

The Catholic church and mission
buildings successfully weathered the
typhoon but the compound wall col

Many Hospital . Leased.
"The situation that really exists is
that many of the hospitals Jisted as
government hospitals are only emer
gency buildings leased from year to
year, which the government aban
doned as soon as proper hospitaliza
tion can be secured in government
owned hospitals. . . .
"It is not on . statistics that the
legion's plea for proper hospitaliza
tion is based, but on constant daily
observation of conditions and ' per
sonal contact' with the situation in
every one of the 14 districts.
"On a visit to a nearby hospital I
found the following situation:
"These men were hospitalized in
one room, one a mental case, an
other a general surgical case and the
third suffering from tuberculosis.
The mental case escaped one night
and was recaptured, wandering about
the vicinity in his pajamas. He was
put back in the room and the next
night killed the tubercular patient
with a chair while the surgical pa
tient looked on helplessly."
Colonel Sprague suggested that
the physicians committee be selected
preferably from the executive com
mittee of the American Medical as
sociation "who have no connection
with the government service."

Michigan and Maine are two of the
states that show a willingness to

In this bulletin we read that in
1921 of the 109 Michigan summer re
sort, 25 were graded as class "A,"
or satisfactory; 82 as class "B," or
fair, and 2 as class "C," or wholly
unsatisfactory or dangerous to the
public. Unfortunately, this bulletin
doet not lint the 109, nor give the
membership of any class.
The natural conditions at each of
the resorts were reported to be satis
factory The 84 that fell short of
getting into the highest class failed
because of man made nuisances; un
safe milk supplies and improper sew
age disposal were given at the most
frequent shortcomings. As to milk,
the cows were not tuberculin tested
and proper cleanliness was not ob
served. In the case of milk, that food could
have been made safe by pasteuriza
tion. A resort could afford to put in
a small pasteurization plant. Even
without a plant, milk can be made
safe by horn; pasteurization or by
setting the cans in a vat of hot water.
The pasteurizing temperature ranges
from 145 to 185, according to the
length of exposure.
At t disposal of excrement, a
chemical closet can be used. For one
family 20 pounds of fresh caustic
soda, dissolved in 10 gallons of
water, it enough, to run a chemical
closet through one season. The dry
earth system in a box privy is satis

department issues a free bulletin on
privy construction and another on

get a quart of milk this morning at
the small bakery where I trade.

of yesterday's milk, the wagon with
