Thereby purchasing Power. In these latter time talk of billion a been handled about so casually that one May easily forget just what can he purchased with such a. Princely sum especially what has been purchased in the past. A Brief glance at what the american people through their government. Have bought with that amount is illuminating. They bought a nation. In the 7 5 years from i Ash. When the United states government first a set up to near the close of the civil War. In the course of which tile nation a preserved. The aggregate expenditure of the Federal government were almost exactly $,ooh, the sum now appropriated to tie spent on a few months to Relief work. A review of the Many thing which were done with that sum of Money in those earlier Day emphasizes How greatly the Tempo of spending a been accelerated. Government a poor. � when the Republic started the population numbered Only about 4.000,000, there were Rich men in the country but not Many of them and their wealth was chief i by in land. The Federal government was poor. For one thing so loosely held together were the several states that made up tile Union that the Federal authorities feared to Levy any internal taxes for fear of secession. Great Sovereign states like Virginia and the Karolina regarded themselves As somewhat Superior entities to the United state a a whole. They were none too enthusiastic shout the federation. For example the entire expenditures of the Federal government for it and i 7 to amounted to but $4.34?�.424. That sum would not meet the payroll of the Federal employees in the City of Washington alone for More than about a Foi night. Vet. In those Days it paid the whole Cost of government the army and Navy and everything else for a couple of years. Times change. Government Cost in a tarty Days. The country grew apace hut there a a determination to keep expense Dow n and it was Long before the annual expenses were permanently Over the Mark. In i Soo there was a burst of extravagance which carried the spending to $11,000,000 hut it subsided again and did not reach so stupendous a sum for a year s support of the government once More until i to a and then just passed voo.01. Down it went again and remained under that Mark until the w a of Isi 2 came. Never again a the Cost of the Federal government to fall Olow hut it May anis7o some students to realize that a late a 1r23 the total Federal Cost was hut a Little Over i 5.000.000.

The better a vast majority Ottis like it therefore the knowledge that the grim reaper has been laying a Lese heavy hand on Racine should he cheering. Or. I. F. Thompson City he Alth commissioner in his annual report for 1934, just issued shows that while one half of the death reported in 1910 occurred among people under 40 years of age. The average age of those who died in 19 34 was 5 4 years. That show Racine is becoming an older Community. Rato slightly higher. Total number of deaths in Fri City in 1934 was 817. This a slightly higher than the number that occurred in 1933 when the re were 571 deaths recorded. The reports throughout the state and nation show a similar exper once. The greatest number of do ath in any one year recorded in this City a in 1 920 when there were 70s. The 1 934 death rate 8.7, is likewise slightly higher than the rate of 8.1 for 1933. The rate of 8.7 compares very favourably in the opinion or. Thompson with the rate of 10 for the entire United states or of 9.2 for Wisconsin. Many reach old age. While the average age of death in 1934 was 54.4 year exactly one half of the deaths occurred in persons 60 years of age or Over. Or. Thompson says this has been True every year since 1931. In this connection be reports a with the knowledge that one half of All deaths in Racine occurred in persons Over 60 veal ctr age one is not surprised to find that the degenerative disease Are increasingly Given As the Cau a of death. We cannot lose sight of the fact that All must die. Of w e i Are escaping the diseases of Young her life there is certain to by an increase in those disease that Are i evidenced by a gradual breaking Down of the human Marline the heart and blood vessels liver and kidney and a disease of the aged cancer. A a actually this group of diseases accounted for 52 per cent of All the deaths in the City during the past year. A oin 1934, disease of hip heart Ltd the list of causes with 124 deaths More than one fifth of All deaths of these. 9 i or 7 per vent. Were in persons Over a Yea in age. From the records of 1r�34. It was found that in Racine after 60 years of age one in every three deaths was from diseases of the heart one in every six from cancer and one in every seven from disease of the kidney and liver. Accident on increase. A othere were 59 deaths from during the last year a continued the health commissioner. From one of the lesser causes a j a dents have become one of the t leading causes of death. This in primarily due to the coming of the motorcar. At present the increase of Drunken Driver in causing still greater hazards on the Highway. In 1932 there were to deaths from Auto accidents in 1 933 there were eight and in 1934 they numbered 18. Auto accidents accounted for 30 per cent of All accidental deaths in Racine in 1934.

A deaths from pneumonia svs remained comparatively level for the past five years. There were 34 recorded in 19 34. The average for the past five years 1930-1934 inclusive. Is 32.

The deaths from tuberculosis have shown a gradual decrease from 43 in 1910 to 19 in 1934 despise the fart that the population has increased to 7 0,700. Tho tuberculosis death rate per i i population in the entire United state is approximately 60. In Racine it a been under 30 for the past three year. The average age of death from this disease has steadily risen until it has reached 45 years an increase of 18 years since 1915 when the average age was 27 years. Or. Thompson in a comment int on these facts says. A whether the improvement in the number of tuberculosis deaths a been accomplished through a. Greater knowledge. Increased facility for rare or improved methods of treatment or from tile development of an immunity by the Public May be debated. But the fart remains that tuberculosis a been driven from the leading cause of death to a place not higher than sixth or seventh. Kind it Ion improve. A within the memory of experienced health ?� continued the commissioner a Oit was the Rule to judge the health rendition of a City by the figures of the death from diarrhoea and enteritis in children. Improved sanitary condition. Elimination of outdoor toilets. Citywide garbage collection insistence on pasteurized milk the development of a Safe water Supply and the knowledge of child care gained through books magazines and the newspaper and understanding of the value of pen Tal care Ami regular visits of the family physician or Well baby Elln ies have reduced the deaths from these diseases to a minimum.
