TUBERCULOSIS IN THE PRISON
Per Cent , of Sufferers Is Enormous
and There Seems but One
From several Investigations that
liavo been made by the National As
sociation for the Study and Preven
tion of Tuberculosis , it Is estimated
that on an average about fifteen per
cent , of the prison population of the
country Is afflicted with tuberculosis.
On this basis , out of the 80,000 prisoners -
ers housed In the penal institutions
of the United States at any given
time , not less than 12,000 are infected
with this disease. If the Philippine
islands and other Insular possessions
were taken into consideration the
number would bo much larger. Some
of the prisons of Pennsylvania , Kan
sas and Ohio show such shocking conditions
ditions with reference to tuberculosis
that many wardens admit that these
places of detention are death traps.
Similar conditions could bo found in
almost every state , and in the major
ity of cases the only sure remedy Is
the destruction of the old buildings
and the erection of new ones.
