ORDER BODY LOUSE INTO QUARANTINE. Flies, mosquitoes, fleas, ground squirrels and rats have long been recognized in California as carriers of disease, and now the State Board of Health has declared the unmentionable body louse (Pediculus vestimenti) a menace to the public health. Because this insect transmits typhus fever, twenty-five cases of which have recently been brought into California from Mexico, the Board has instructed health officers to quarantine any persons or premises known to be infested with body lice, until complete delousing has been accomplished.

In addition, the Board has ordered local health authorities to quarantine the premises for pediculosis, the classical name for louse infestation, placarding same with a sign which reads :-"Pediculosis. These premises are declared to be in a state of quarantine. All persons are forbidden to enter or leave these premises or to remove any articles therefrom without the permission of the local health authority."

Lodging house keepers, employees, teachers, school nurses and any others who have knowledge that certain persons and premises are infested with body lice are told by the Board to report the fact to the local health authority.

LEGISLATION. The following is a summary of the bills of interest to health departments and public health workers introduced at the eighty-second session of the General Assembly which were enacted into laws:

Senate Bill No. 56. This act relates to the powers and duties of the state inspector of plumbing and the division of plumbing inspection. It provides for the appointment of such additional number of deputy inspectors as the appropriations for_the department will permit and for the regulation of persons engaged in or at the plumbing business. A graded fee system displaces the flat rate system provided in the old law. This will provide amore equitable distribution of the expense of inspection. It also removes the limitation on the salary of the state inspector and gives the Boards the authority to fix the salary. An amendment was written into this bill in the Senate Committee on Public Health which will very materially add to the efficiency of the department. This amendment provides that all plans for sanitary equipment and drainage in or for buildings coming within the provisions of the act must be submitted to this department for approval before the contract for the improvement is let. The act will go into effect about July 1st.

Senate Bill No. 101. This is the act creating a State Department of Health. The Board has been informed regarding the provisions of this act, which was signed by the president of the Senate and the speaker of the House of Representatives on March 21st and filed in the office of the secretary of state March 31st. This will make the law go into effect June 30th.

Senate Bill No. 126. This act relates to county and district hospitals for tuberculosis. Provision is made for the enlargement, repair or improvement of county hospitals for tuberculosis, which authority did not heretofore exist. An amendment which is carried throughout the section of this law provides for the admission of any form of tuberculosis to county and district hospitals. The law previously provided only for pulmonary tuberculosis. This act also provides authority for the establishment of tuberculosis dispensaries in counties contributing to a district tuberculosis hospital or maintaining a county hospital. The county commissioners in counties that have not joined in the construction or maintenance of a county or district hospital may provide a dispensary for tuberculosis. All of these dispensaries are subject to the approval of the State Board of Health and the Board is required to prescribe rules and regulations governing their operation.

House Bill No. 7. This bill, introduced by Mr. Billingslea of Butler County for the purpose of getting rid of the health officer of Hamilton, was passed by both houses but was vetoed by the Governor. The provisions of the bill were obnoxious to all health officials and to many others interested in health work and these persons did not hesitate to let the Governor know their views in regard to the bill.
