1948 TB Screening

In 1948, for a TB awareness and prevention effort, Milford Twp was selected for a place to have everyone tested for TB. So, on 29 July 1948 the 512 residents were given the opportunity to have a free miniature X-ray taken with overall results studied by the State. Also see pages 65, 319.

We had been selected, for better or worse, because we were one of the most rural (would this mean isolated?) townships in the State. About 90% of the folks participated despite a violent thunderstorm in the A.M.

Helen Horness`53 received, as a door prize, a fine electric toaster donated by Reedholm Hardware in Nevada.

Right: Ruth Warren`54, has her x-ray taken and her photo taken through the open door of the portable trailer that had been brought to the School by the Story County Tuberculosis Assoc and the Iowa Dept of Health. It is interesting to look at Ruth's styles of the times. The only thing different from a stylish young lady in Jr High now might be the two-toned shoes (saddle shoes). Also page 274.

Ol' Milford Farmer learn: Friction can be a drag sometimes.
