districts. A group of field medical
directors will work simultaneously in
adjoining counties under the direc direction

rural sanitation. This will be fol followed
lowed followed by a program of public health
to correct any defects which may
have been discovered by careful
study and survey.

that of Dr. D.. C Campbell, head of
the venereal disease work in Florida,
in which he stated that approximate approximately
ly approximately five thousand sufferers had been
reported to the bureau- of vital sta statistics
