DR. THOMPKINS SCORED
HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND U. S.
PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE
WASHINGTON, July 6—(CNS)—
Dr- William J. Thompkins, the new
Recorder of Deeds of the District of
Columbia has not been in the City
very long, but “out of a rich exper
ience as a one time superintendent
of the Kansas City General Hospital i
No- 2, and Assistant Commissioner i
of Health of Kansas City, he has |
called attention to District Health |
conditions, with the accompanying
high death rate among infants from
Dr- Thompkins laid down the pro
position that the citizens must share
proportionately in the benefits pro
vided from public funds- He found
the record very poor in this regard i
in the District of Columbia, but laid i
the fault at the door of the local col
ored citizens. He pictured the impos
sible health conditions with the ac
companying high death rate among j
infants and from tubesculosis- This |
neglect, the Recorder declared, was
charg able to the administration of
the local Health Department- Wash
ington must reduce the record of in
fant mortality for the colored com
munity. Well baby stations must be
provided in number sufficient to real
ly serve the community- The colored
citizens must have representation in
the Health Department—official
physicians; and most of our ills will
be cured when the colored citizens
manifest tho same interest in the
qualifications of white nominees as
they do in the qualifications of color
ed nominees. Doctor Thompkins cit
ed the close scrutiny exercised in the
case of the mere mention of names of
colored candidates for the local muni
cial court judgeship, and commended
similar zeal in all personnel matters
as a measure to safeguard our inter
ests as citizens and taxpayers.
Dr- Thompkins scored both the
Health Department and the Public
Health Service for neglect of health
cf colored children of preschool age
He advocated establishment of well
baby stations in every community,
pointing out the frequent impractic
ability of a colored mother with sev
eral children reporting to Freed
mer’s Hospital for clinical instruct
“Supervision in clinic and by color

natal period up to 6 years ox age,
rapidly increasing child mortality is
to be checked.
‘The District of Columbia.” he
said, “will continue to have an in
creasingly higher tuberculosis rate
among both races if immediate pre
vention steps are not taken. It would
have required only $50,000 last year
to save the livrs of 250 of the color
ed babies that died here from lack of
proper care, and expenditure of $100,
000 for three years would decrease
the rate to a point below that of
cities of comparative population and
Early symptoms of tuberculosis,
Dr. Thompkins said, were disregard- !
ed by the Health Department heie, |
and cases were not rated as positive
until they had reached a well-deve
loped state- As a consequence, he
estimated, instead of the 2,300 cases
rated as positive, there are actually
10,000 tuberculosis cases her?, con
tacting approximately 100,000 of the
For one baby station in Southeast
Washington,” he said, “there is one
nurse to take care of an area 1
square mite- It would be impossible
for he? to make an investigation of
the territory in a month, and inspect
the muddy culvers between the house
and other prevailing insanitary con
ditions- The fact that there are only
11 stations here, with only 11 District
nurses, whose equipment is dilapi
dated and inadequate in every parti
cular, is a serious reflection on all
agencies of Government- If the wind
can blow germs from Dakota to
Washington, as it did recently, cer
tainly it may be expected to blow
them from neglected colored areas to
Ch.vy Chase and other localities
better cared for.”
Civic associations giving immediate
attention to Dr. Thompkins’ critic
isms have started a movement to
force the health authorities to pro

Recently a birthday party of great
national importance occurred- It
marked the first anniversary of the
NRA—the most extraordinary bureau
ever created by the Federal Govern
Birthday “greetings” were of two
kinds. On the ona hand, the NRA
executives praised the bureau to the
skies, said that it had started us well
on the road to recovery, would take
us all before long. On tha other
hand, various critics said that the
NRA represented the downfall of dem
ocracy, that it meant we were in for

it had abrogated every major provi
sion of the Constitution.
Neither of these viewpoints is in
dictative of the stand the American
r)"ople will take when they finally
vr-css an opinion. They know the
NRA has done fine things—such as
Jrni ating sweat shops and child
leb and giving labor a be ter break
so far as wrages, hours and working
conditions are concerned. They know
likewise done things which are
1 so good—such as setting itsnlf up
a - a czar over routine business mat
l - about which situation they are
Most commentators are of the opin
the main trouble with the
NRA is that it g ew too fa.:t and tri
ed to cover too much territory. In
the beginning, it was principally an
arbiter of working conditions—it laid
down minimum wage and maximum
.. .iivi.i'-work rulings. Then it be
gan to branch out into very different
fields. It made rulings concerning
such loutines business matters as
siz’a and time of credits. It fixed
■ prices—at the expense of the consum
ing public, according to the various
1 Darrow reports. It became the ex
| ecutive head of every major indus
try. and offie vs and owners of com
panies and corporations found them
selves hog-tied at every turn. They
couldn’t make a move without author
;zation from Washington.
The powers-that-be in Washington,
as a matter of fact, have recognized
this. Th i NRA is giving up price
fixing. It is about to reduce the
numbo- of codes in effect by 70 of
80 per cent. It is becoming less
arbitrary in its actions. In brief, it
looks as if the NRA in the future
will be mainly concerned with wages
and hours and working conditions, as
was its initial purpose.
Most of these changes, which are
being received with great applause
by the bulk of industries, may be
credited to Mr Roosevelt. The Pre
sident is the commander-in-chief who
makes the final decisions. The be
lef is widely held now' that General
Johnson may be supplanted before
long—he is able, energetic, agg 'essive
and honest, but he has made too many
enemies. He gets things done—but
there are always a great many
wounded feelings whin he is finished.
His great weakness is lack of tact,
plus amazing sensitiveness. Critis
ism, no matter how friendly and well
disposer, invariably anger him.
It is impossible to enter into dis
cussion of business conditions these
days without bringing in the ominous
word “strike”’ The labor problem is
uppermost in the mind of every ex
ecutive—even though his business has
not been directly affected, threats of
a general strike keep him awake
It is an interesting fact that we
hear more of strikes now than at
any time since tbj great post-war
walk-outs—yet the number of men
involved in strikes, and the total of
working hours lost, are about the
same as in the past five or six years
In other words, so far as the statcis
show ,the strikes problem is no more
severe now than it was last year or
the year before, or in booming 1928
However, the statics don’t trll all.
In the past, strikes have occurred
because of disagreement over wrages
and hours. Present strikes are very
different—the strikers, as a matter
of form, make demands for shorter

of a tax system that would relieve
the tax ridden property owners. He
stated that if a man had $5,000 worth
of real estate, he had to pay taxes
on it, but if a man had $5,000 worth
of exempt securities, he escaped the
tax burden, and he felt that this was
an unfair distribution of the public
responsibilities, and in his opinion, the
only relief for the property owners,
and for an equal distribution of the
expens s of the operation of our state
county and city, was a sales tax that
everybody had to buy and there would
be no escape.
Mr. Joe Rosenbloon was introduced

Senator Wherry, the principal
speaker of the evening, stated the
basic wealth of Nebraska coming from

for Omaha to prosper, therefore Ne
braska as a whole prosperity as a
whole depended on the success of

the United States Senate, his job
would be to fight for th-- rights of
the farmer and to strengthen our
financial institution. Senator Wher

inquiry from the guest of the ev.n

opinion, and they thought he was the
