Dr. Brandebury, Chairman of the Committee, reported the following rules and regulations for hotel inspection, which were on motion adopted:

Regulation No. 1. 'All doors, windows, back porches where same exist, air passages or openings in hotels and restaurants, lunch wagons or lunch counters in this state, shall be properly screened from the first day of April to the 15th day of November in each year.

Regulation No. 2. All cooked or prepared food on display shall be kept covered at all times by glass or 16 mesh screen covers, or kept in glass or finely screened cases to prevent contamination by handling or flies.

Regulation No. 3. All garbage or other matter discarded from kitchens shall be kept in metallic garbage cans which shall be kept clean and always effectively covered to prevent flies from getting into the cans.

It shall be the duty of every person or persons conducting a hotel, restaurant, eating-house, or lunch wagon, to keep the premises clean and sanitary and all floors scrubbed sufficiently often to keep them in sanitary condition, and they shall exterminate all ants, roaches and other insects, and keep premises free from same. They shall also keep all food where rats and mice cannot get to it. • Regulation No. 5. All water closets shall be disinfected each week or more frequently if necessary, to prevent all obnoxious odors or effluvia arising therefrom.

The secretary reported that the committee appointed at a previous meeting, accompanied by His Excellency Governor Hatfield, visited Morgantown on November 6th, 1913, held a conference with the committee representing the University authorities, inspected the laboratories of the university, and concluded an arrangement whereby the Hygienic Laboratory under the control of the Board was established at the University. The contract entered into will be found on another page in connection with the work of the laboratory.

Dr. John N. Simpson, director of the Hygienic Laboratory, was authorized to purchase a typewriting machine if he fail to receive one through the Board of Public Works. The secretary and Dr. Simpson were appointed to draft rules for the government of the Laboratory.

The president and secretary of the Board were, on motion, authorized to draft rules and regulations making effective the law forbidding the use of the common drinking cup, which law reads as follows:

The state board of health shall have full authority to establish rules and regulations to make this prohibition effective, as in their judgment may seem wise and proper.

Sec. 2. All persons, firms or corporations failing to observe the provisions of this act, or the rules and regulations of the state board demeanor and upon conviction thereof shall be fined not less than ten nor more than fifty dollars for each offense.

Sec. 3. All acts or parts of acts inconsistent with this act are hereby repealed.

The following rule was presented and unamiously adopted:

Common carriers, hotels, boarding houses, restaurants, schools, public buildings, clubs, theaters, factories, stores, and all other places where people eat and drink or congregate, shall not provide any drinking cup, glass or other vessel for common use in drinking; provided, that this regulation shall not be held to preclude the use of a drinking cup, glasses or other vessels which are thoroughly cleansed by washing in hot water after use by each individual,, nor shall it be held to preclude the use of sanitary devices for common use, such as the bubbling fountain for schools, and cups made of paper or other material intended for individual use.

Charleston, January 16th, 1914.—The following members of the Board were present at a conference with Governor Hatfield and Commissioner of Prohibition Hon. Fred O. Blue, called to discuss the Yost Prohibition Law, President W. W. Golden, J. L. Pyle, J. H. Shipper, J. E. Robins, J. A. Rusmisell, H. M. Rymer, W. J. Davidson, H. A. Barbee, H. A. Brandebury, G. D. Lind and the secretary, S. L. Jepson. At the conclusion of the conference a special meeting of the Board of Health was held, all of the above members being present.

On motion of the secretary, a committee composed of Drs. Barbee, Brandebury and Rusmisell was appointed to report at the next meeting regulations for supplying the state with vaccine virus, etc., under the authority given to the Board by the Amendments of February, 1913.

The secretary announced to the board the formation of a national body known as The Federation of State Medical Boards, which meets annually, the purpose of which is to advance the interest of the various boards. After a discussion of the matter, the secretary was authorized to make application for membership, paying the necessary dues.

The question of changing our rule with reference to reciprocity with other states was presented by Dr. Golden. After free discussion it was resolved hereafter to require a year's practice in the state from which any applicant comes, who applies for a license under our reciprocity regulations. Heretofore, this rule has applied only to states which required of West Virginia applicants a year's practice in this state.

The secretary called attention to the fact that the law as amended required the board “to gather information in respect to matters of public health for diffusion among the people.” He stated that nearly all the State Boards of Health for this purpose issued a bulletin, either monthly or quarterly, and suggested the propriety of our board doing so. On motion of Dr. Robins, it was resolved to commence the issue of a health bulletin as soon as possible, and that

Lind, and President Golden, were appointed a committee to supervise the publication of a bulletin.

After auditing accounts the board adjourned.

Charleston, May 7th, 1914.—The second meeting of the School of Instruction was held on May 6th, particulars of which can be found on another page. The board convened in executive session at 9:00 A.
