Rural Council & the L.G.B. NEED FOR AN INFECTIOUS DISEASES HOSPITAL. At the meeting of the Rural District Council on Thursday, a letter was read from the Local Government Board calling attention to their communication to the Council in 1S15 relating to a Joint Isola- tion Hospital, and observing that in the last annual report of the medical officer, 613 cases of Scarlet fever had been noti- fied together with a number of cases of diphtheria and enteric fever. These figures indicated the need of an infectious diseases hospital, and the recent out- break of typhoid fever at Tumble also strongly emphasized the need for the pro- vision of such an institution The Clerk (Mr. J. II. Blake) I have replied informing the Boaid that we have now agreed to join the Llanelly Borough Council and the Burry Port Council in the erection of a joint isolation hospital, provided reasonable terms were arranged with the Corporation as to the purchase of their existing isolation hospital at the Morfa. It "-as reported that nothing further had been received from the Corporation regarding the charges made for the Tumble typhoid patients treated at the Llanelly Isolation Hospital. USING POTATOES TO SAVE BREAD. Sir Arthur Yapp, the Director of Food Economy, is anxious that the present very large surplus stock of potatoes and vegetables should be utilised in all private houses, and also in hotels, rest- aurants, and other public eating places, in such a way as to save bread. It has been brought to his notice that in many public eating places the charge for a portion of potatoes and other vege- tables is so relatively high as to en- courage people to order "bread instead. This is very much ngainsrt the national interest at present, and Sir Arthur Yapp desires it to be clearly understood that he expects the management of nil public eating places to alter their arrangements I accordingly.
