During the year the medical inspectors made 9,535 visits to the schools and 73 visits to the homes of the pupils. Twelve thousand and twenty-nine pupils were examined" during the year, 1,169 excluded for cause, and 8,461 readmitted. Seven hundred and eighty-eight pupils were examined to ascertain if they had been successfully vaccinated; of this number 673 had been successfully vaccinated and 115 unsuccessful vaccinations.

Physical examinations were made of 154 candidates for admission to the normal school, 106 of these being white and 48 colored. In the case of the white candidates 25 were found to have some defect of vision and it was recommended that they be required to wear suitable glasses. In the case of the colored candidates 20 had defective vision and a similar recommendation was made relative thereto. The usual tables accompany this report. Respectfully,

W. C. FOWLER, M. D., Inspector in Charge Contagious Disease Service. WILLIAM C. WOODWARD, M. D.,
