The United States Public Health Service has completed a study of the health of workers in a Portland cement plant, the first of a series covering the dusty trades, according to an announcement recently made by Surgeon General H. S. Cumming. The study was undertaken to ascertain whether persons working in an atmosphere containing numerous minute particles of a calcium dust suffered any harmful effects. The investigation was conducted in one of the older, dustier plants, so that the effect of large quantities of the dust could be observed. Records of all absences from work were kept for three years
