The Hadassah Medical Organization in Palestine, which is maintained by Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, has been called upon to assist the Indian Field Service of the United States Department of the Interior in its educational campaign against trachoma among the Indians, it was learned yesterday.

Dr. Haim Yassky, head of the Hadassah Medical Oroganization, has sent a set of lantern slides on trachoma to Dr. Francis I. Proctor, special consultant on the disease in the Indian Field Service, with headquarters at Sante Fe, N. M. In making his request for the educational material, Dr. Proctor refers to an article by Dr. Yassky in the “Revue de Trachoma,” in which the Palestine medical head discusses anti-trachoma propaganda.

Mrs. Robert Szold, chairman of the Palestine committee of Hadassah, said that the efforts of the Hadassah Medical Organization in eradicating trachoma in Palestine have resulted in lowering the incidence of the disease among the 37,000 school children in the Jewish schools to 6.3 percent at the present time, as compared with thirty four per percent in 1918.
