Paralysis Outbreak Is Due
During 194243, Says
Authority On Pediatrics
Group Needs Funds
An infantile paralysis outbreak is
predicted for Michigan during 1942-.
43, by Dr. Charles McKhann chair-
man of the Department of Pediatrics
and Communicable Disease.
The disease, characterized by de-
generation of nerve structures and'
resulting in paralysis and possible
deformity, travels in this area in two
or three year cycles. 1940 was an
epidemic year and taxed state fa-
cilities to the utmost. According to
Dr. McKhann, "Polio has been in-
creasing both in incidence and in the
areas of the country involved for the
past ten or twelve years."
These gloomy facts make clear the
urgent need for raising funds for
treatment of this prolonged and cost-
ly disease. Fifty per cent of the
money 'raised in each community
goes to the National Foundationfor
Infantile Paralysis, which uses this
sum for the promotion of research.
Recently the Foundation granted
$40,000 to the University for the pur-
pose of creating facilities to train
virologists and study virus diseases.
The other 50 per cent is retained lo-
cally tonfinance cost of diagnosis
treatment, equipment and educa-
tional service for school-age patients.
Efficiency of the, polio campaign is
seen in the cost cf its administration
-less than one per cent of the total
Contrary to custom, University stu-
dents are not sponsoring their own
infantile paralysis campaign this
year, since the new examination
schedule conflicts with the date of
the drive. However, students will
have ample opportunity to contribute
through the local campaign.
