More than 60 persons X-rayed here last term may have tuberculosis, Dr. John P. Monks '24, physician at the Department of Hygiene and director of the drive said yesterday. Of the 7954 X-rays taken, 68 showed suspicious signs and possible symptoms.
More than half of these 68 were employees, Dr. Monks hastened to add. Actually, only 5 percent of the students who were X-rayed have been asked to return for further examination. These 30 have had a second test, and are now waiting to be examined personally by doctors. Final results will be mailed out when this investigation is completed, Dr. Monks explained.
In addition to the 34 employees reinvestigated, two wives and two Faculty members have also had a re-test.
