SECOND CLEAN-UP SURVEY ON TODAY.
Boy Scouts Will Find Out What Effect Notices Had.
The second survey in the city-wide clean-up campaign, in which 500 Boy Scouts are assisting the health department, will be made today. Each detail of boys will be under a sanitary inspector, as on last Saturday. This survey is to see if notices left on the first visit have been complied with. If not, a second notice will be left. On Friday and Saturday the final inspection will be made by the health department, the inspectors visiting the places about which complaints have been filed. The tenants and property owners will be given until May 1 to clean up, after which date prosecutions will be instituted, Dr. Paul Paquin, director of public health, announced yesterday afternoon.
Today the Consumers' League will begin to make reports on inspections of grocery stores, meat markets, ice cream parlors, restaurants, etc. Complaints filed by the women who make these inspections will be investigated at once by men from the sanitary department of the board of health and action taken to require a clean-up.
About 150 to 200 cards are arriving daily from children 12 years of age and older, in the public schools. These are giving the department a vast amount of information as to where insanitary conditions exist, such as in trash piles, tin cans, weeds and fly-breeding dumps. These will be looked after by sanitary inspectors.
