21. Are cases followed up and treated? 22 The prevalence of venereal diseases is shown by a report made to the State Social Hygiene

    Bureau from July 26  to July 31, 1928. In these five days 1200 Virginia physicians reported 
    8,460 cases.

23. Why does the Virginia League League of Women Voters advocated larger appropriations to

     carry on the Social Hygiene work in the State Department of Health?  Because the League 
     believes the social hygiene is a concern of all interested in public welfare. Careful training in 
     character and sex will help to prevert delinquency and reduce the [pre]valance of venereal
