Since the secretary of the Kansas State Board of Health started the slogan “swat the flies,” and led the way in the campaign against common drinking-cups, roller-towels and other long-accepted abominations, the public has come to look to Kansas for advanced ideas on health matters. The announcement of the second annual summer school for Kansas physicians and health officers, to be held at the state university, June 10-15, is another evidence of progress in the sunflower state. County and city health officers and physicians interested in public health work are to devote a week to the study of methods of sanitation, water-supply, sewage-disposal and other sanitary measures. Medical officers of the United States Public Health and Marine-Hospital Service and other well-known scientific men are to lecture, conduct laboratory courses and give demonstrations of food, drug and house inspections, for the benefit of those in attendance. This plan will without doubt be of great value in developing competent local health officers and in improving the health of the people of the state.
