DIPHTHERIA IMMUNIZATION CAMPAIGN  The municipal health department and the board of education of Cincinnati are cooperating in a campaign against diphtheria in children under 10 years, to last from December 3 to January 26. Toxin-antitoxin may be administered by family physicians or district school physicians.

DIPHTHERIA PREVENTION CAMPAIGN WITHOUT CLINICS  The Detroit department of health urges parents to protect their children from diphtheria by means of toxin-antitoxin and advises them to be taken to their physician at once. There will be no clinics this year, but an intensive prevention campaign will be carried on by the physicians of the city. The Wayne County Medical Society states in its bulletin that if this campaign fails, the entire program outlined by the society "will be doomed; the free clinic will have a new lease of life, and its sponsors will have the figures to justify its existence."
