Honorable Carter Glass,
Secretary of the Treasury,
Washington, D. C.
My dear Mr. Secretary: With fur further
ther further reference to conference had with
you, relative to recommendation made
by a board appointed by the surgeon
general of the public health service
that a national home for lepers be
located on certain islands off the coast
of Florida, permit me to again direct
your attention to the fact that there
ii violent and pronounced opposition
tc the recommendation by officials of
the State Board of Health, civic and
ether organizations, many citizens,
and persons who spend the winter
months in the state.
In the circumstances, may I express
the hope that you will find it possible
to disapprove the recommendation,
understanding, as I do. that there are
homes already established in several
states for such unfortunates; and it
will, no doubt, be found advantageous s
tc the government to enlarge the fa facilities
cilities facilities at one or more of these insti institutions
tutions institutions in order to adequately meet
the needs of the public health service.
Very truly and sincerely,
Duncan U. Fletcher.

My dear Senator Fletcher:
I beg to advise, in view of the rep representations
resentations representations made by you that there
is violent and pronounced opposition
to the location in the state of Flor Florida
ida Florida of a national home for persons af affected
fected affected with leprosy, and in deference
to your wishes in regard to the mat

sideration, not to approve the recom

be located in the state.

"There are many among our readers

Many people have expressed to us
surprise that John D. Robertson is

We are told that a second Dante has
reached our city in the form of a very
emotional Sunday school teacher. And
it is also said that said teacher has
under her guidance a large group of
pupils, all of whom are more or less
ii'terested in the art of dancing. So,
as the story goes, this is what she told
them on a recent Sunday morning:
"There certainly is a hell awaiting
those who indulge too often in the
fascinating diversion of dancing, and
when you reach that place of torture
you will find waiting for you only a
jazz orchestra, and of course, you will
dance and dance and dance until your
feet are worn out most, and friends
coming in will say, 'My, how you
dance, but you do look tired; why
don't you quit dancing?' And all you
can say will be, 'Oh, how I wish I
could stop for a little while, but I
can't,' and so you will have to dance,
on and on through all eternity. Now
who of you would want to dance your yourselves
selves yourselves into any such place?
"Me," quickly replied an ardent'
devotee. "Me for hell. I know that
I could dance forever and forever, if
only could dance with me."
