THE ARMY'S HEALTH  Major Gen. R. W. Bliss, Surgeon General, announces that the Army's health was better in 1949 than in any other year. Preliminary figures show that the rate of admissions for 1949 was 128 per 100,000 strength per average day. Admissions in Army medical reporting include not only hospital cases but all persons relieved from duty because of illness or injury beyond the actual day of onset. The 1949 report shows an improvement in Army health for the fourth consecutive year and compares with an average wartime rate, excluding battle casualties, of 202 admissions per 100,000 per day. There was also a decline in the death rate, particularly in deaths from disease. The 1949 figures for total deaths were 200 per 100,000 strength per year, against 220 for 1948 and 230 for both 1946 and 1947. Comparable rates released by the U. S. Public Health Service
