With pulmonary tuberculosis in the United States reaching the point where many authorities predict its early relegation to the list of minor causes of death,1 it has become essential to protect our present low mortality levels through the study and elimination of such reservoirs of infection as are recognized to be present among our heavily infected negro population. The literature clearly acknowledges that tuberculosis in the American negro with its high mortality rate is indeed an urgent problem.2 For many reasons the control factors which have proved so successful among our white population have found little application among the negroes.
