said.
But Sue Wagner of the Michigan
chapter of the National Organization of
Women pointed out results of the tests
were inadmissable as evidence in cour-
ts.
In giving her support to the measure,
she said many attorneys get around
that roadblock by "whispering the
results in judges' ears."
Another supporter of the bill was
Howard Simon, director of the
Michigan chapter of the American Civil
Liberties Union.
Simon told the committee the tests
were unreliable and robbed persons of
their dignity.
"I'd like to see the committee mem-
bers take a polygraph test on such sub-
jects as campaign financing," Simon
joked.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP)-Bubonic plague,
the "black death" that wiped out a quarter of
Europe's population in the Middle Ages, has claimed
its first U.S. fatality of the year in New Mexico-the
state that leads the nation in plague cases.
The victim was a 51-year-old Laguna Pueblo man
who died Tuesday in an Albuquerque hospital of the
pneumonic form of plague, which can be transmitted
from person to person.
HOWEVER, DR. RICHARD Hoffman, acting state
epidemiologist, said there was no evidence that the
organism had spread from the victim.
"We are presently investigating all the possible con-
tacts the patient had with both hospital personnel and
immediate family and neighbors," Hoffman said.
According to Dr. Arnold Kaufman of the Center for
Disease Control in Atlanta, New Mexico has more

The Michigan Daily-Friday, May 30, 1980-Page 13
reported plague cases than any other state.
IN THE LAST 10 years, New Mexico has recorded
58 cases, more than half the number nationwide, he
said. The state has recorded 87 plague cases since
1949, when record-keeping began. Fifteen of the 87
died.
Bubonic plague can be transmitted to humans
through the bites of fleas from infected rodents and
other animals. The bubonic form can develop into the
pneumonic, or contagious form.
Common symptoms are fever, general malaise,
and soreness of the lymph glands in the underarm
and groin areas. The incubation period varies from
about three to seven days, Kaufman said.
From 1970-79, when New Mexico had 58 cases, there
were 17 in Arizona, 12 in California, 8 in Colorado, 6 in
Oregon, and one each in Nevada and Wyoming,
