Public Health Department Dissolved
In connection with the administration of the reich by the national-socialist party, the department of public health has been dissolved and in its stead an expert council on public health created. Dr. Wagner, the leader of the German medical profession, has been chosen to organize the new council and to serve as its director. This council will handle all questions having to do with the preservation of the health of the German people, particularly questions pertaining to demographic science, hereditary biology, race hygiene, social hygiene and popular enlightenment on health problems, including questions that concern exponents of nature cures and various therapeutic cults. All party headquarters must submit to this council all questions that concern the fields taken over by the council, must present all measures before they are carried out, and must turn over for approval all reports to the authorities, before they are submitted.
