For use of sanitary inspectors of the Louisiana State Department of Health, the author has compiled a manual covering every phase of the sanitarian's work. The chapters include bacteriology, bacteriology of water and milk, control of food and milk supplies, sewage disposal, food handling, meat control and the control of rodents and insect pests and of communicable diseases. There are sections on housing, vital statistics and numerous formulas. Special supplements cover the legislation of the state of Louisiana affecting the work of the sanitarian. A number of supplements are also included from official publications of the American Public Health Association. The work is so practical that its immediate application to the duties of the sanitarian is obvious. A similar publication for sanitarians in other states, modeled on this publication, will be well worth while.
