FIRE AND WATER ENGINEERING The University of Wisconsin Extension Division is inaugurating a special consulting service to communities in municipal and sanitary engineering and in doing so makes the announcement that “The disease crop of the nation is worth $3,000,000,000 every year. Most of the towns in Wisconsin that have a population of 3,000 or more have made beginnings in municipal and sanitary improvements. A great many small towns and villages have as yet done little,” the announcement adds. “Germany has furnished this country a striking example of the benefits of adopting sanitary improvement, and has surprised even her own most optimistic advocates by proving that the expenditures that go for bettering community conditions not only pay by protecting health and giving comforts undreamed of to the people, but actually reduce the cost of living.”
