FIFTH ANNUAL SESSION.



De, W. M. Joxes, President : No man or body of men should enter
upon any great or important undertaking without first invoking the
blessing of the Deity, so I am going to ask Dr. Robert E. Roe of Holy
Trinity Church to make this invocation.

iisrvocATioisr.

Rev. R. E. Roe : Our Father, we come before Thee, in the name of
the Great Physician, to ask Thy blessing upon the work of these Thy
servants. We pray Thee that they may learn more and more from His
life the great lessons of sacrifice and service; that they may take the
results handed down to them by a noble profession and carry them on
to ever greater and greater achievements. We ask Thee especially to
bless this present meeting. Give it success even beyond the desire of
those gathered here, that Thy name may have the glory and humanity
the benefit. We ask this and every other blessing in the name of Him
Who hath taught us to say :

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed by Thy name. Thy king-
dom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this
day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those
who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver
us from evil, for Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever. Amen.

ADDRESS OF WELCOME.



Hex. T. J. Murphy, Mayor of Greexsboro.

Mr. Chairman, Members, Ladies and Gentlemen:

It is indeed a pleasure and privilege to welcome to our city men who
are engaged in the business of promoting the health of the public. We
have had in the past the honor of welcoming the State Medical Society,



4 HEALTH OFFICERS ASSOCIATION".

the men who have the care and promotion of the individual's health, the
men who are tied to their individual patients by confidential relations
and the secrets of their profession, and whose transactions and profes-
sional relations are protected by the laws of the country. But this is a
new era, when men enlisted and engaged in the same line of work, men
listed as physicians, are bound to the public as their patients and are
bound by no confidential rules of secrecy, but are urged and inspired by
the great and all-pervading policy of publicity. That very keynote, that
very distinction and difference between the individual physician and the
health officer, voices, I think, an uprising and upheaval and revolution
in the health work of this country the results of which no human mind
can foresee. For we must all agree that, in order to have successful
sanitation, successful public prevention of disease, the greatest publicity
should be given to any community or person infected with contagion in
order to prevent an epidemic.

I was just thinking this morning how to frame my remarks to these
two societies in order that I might not be guilty of taxing your patience
by repeating my speech on tomorrow. I know that the great majority
of this society is composed of physicians, and it has been a task for me
to think what to say in these two speeches.

This idea of publicity struck me as being the first distinction, and I
hope that there will not be many other distinctions, because the great
benefit to the public at large — to the laity, to us, the people outside of
the medical profession — the greatest thing to us and the thing we appre-
ciate most is the privilege of being asked into your meetings and having
some liberty of discussion and interchange of ideas about the subject of
health. Heretofore it has been held in the secrets of the greatest physi-
cians of this country, but today you have shot out this branch, the
Health Officers' Association, that is encouraging the public by giving it
the benefit of your most valuable information.

You know not how the officials and the citizenship of the cities and
towns of this State, Avho are more subject to disease by being herded
together than are the people in the rural sections, really appreciate
knowledge as to disease prevention and health protection.

I, therefore, take special pleasure in extending to this Health Officers'
Association the warmest kind of welcome. I bid you abide as long as
you will, and enjoy yourselves to the fullest extent. It is our pleasure
to entertain you, but the greatest benefit we can derive from you, and
you from us, will be the serious consideration of the great policies, prin-
ciples, and practices that will in the future so greatly bless our city and
State. Therefore, I look to this meeting and its results as most far-



FIFTH AKNUAL SESSION. O

reaching. The meetiug of tomorrow will be great, and its deliberations
far-reaching, but I look to this as the beginning — this organization but
five years of age, as the greatest work the Medical Society has ever
fathered or visioned : this work of communicating with the public,
taking it into their confidence, warning the public of the disasters, the
terrors, and dangers of disease, and at the same time informing it of
means of prevention, thereby saving the public in the end.

I have not the time nor the information to go into any detailed dis-
cussion of principles and practices ; that I leave with you. "We hope to
be benefited by your professional knowledge and your expert suggestions
along these lines. We think that Greensboro is especially fortunate to
have you meet within her limits, and we expect results most far-reaching
and most beneficial from this meeting. However small in number, we
think the power put in motion here for the conservation of humanity
will exceed that of any meeting in many years. Though few, I see that
you are in earnest and full of zeal. Even the laymen here have im-
pressed upon me the idea that your association may look into the future
with gleaming eyes of hope and confidently rely upon the realization of
your fondest dreams.

EESPOITSE TO ADDRESS OF WELCOME.

Dr. B. K. Hays, Oxford : We are not perfect strangers in Greensboro.
We feel that we are fortunate to be here. We appreciate the hospitality
extended to us, and the kindness of his Honor, the Mayor, in coming
before us and giving us this cordial welcome. We* are the ones to be
felicitated on being here. We wish to thank him, and Ave wish to thank
the citizens of Greensboro.

PRESIDEN^T'S ADDRESS.



Dr. William M. .Tones.



Fellow Members of the North Carolina Health Ojficers' Association:

I know that I did not fully express my feelings when elected at our
meeting in Raleigh as the presiding officer of this association. I now
assure you that I have appreciated and do appreciate the honor you
have so graciously conferred.

As county health officer of Guilford and as a citizen of the city of
Greensboro, I want to further extend to you the welcome which has been
so admirably done by our honorable mayor, and to say that we are par-
ticularly glad to have you meet here in this the Gate City of our State.



b HEALTH OFFICERS ASSOCIATION.

It had not been my intention to prepare an address that would necessi-
tate being read, but, in order to confine myself more closely to that of
which I would have somewhat to say, I have been compelled to reduce it
to writing. This, however, is only following the general plan and prece-
dent, which, having been set years ago, should cause one to well consider
his position ere he makes any radical innovation.

If you will bear with me for a short while, I shall endeavor to bring
to your attention some phases of the work that is so near and yet so far
from every one here, and which is so very necessary, not only to every
citizen, but to our jSTation and the entire human race. The questions of
public health are as vast and as 'full of possibilities as is the human race,
and they bear a direct relationship one to the other. You increase the
public health of a nation a certain per cent and pari passu with it you
have a like advance and progress of the nation, and vice versa.

I am not going to enter upon the question of the work that has been
