In another article in this issue, appears a communication from the Local Board of Health in regard to reporting other contagious diseases. If every patron of the schools will observe the law therein set forth and co-operate with the authorities in every way the board believes that the matter can be controlled. If mild cases of Scarlet Fever are neglected, quarantining others, and closing the schools will have no effect in stamping out the epidemic. It will require the united effort of all to obtain results.
Some physicians recommend vaccination for scarlet fever and it is suggested by the board that this matter be investigated by the patrons who desire to send their children to school.
