Polio Lecture
Delivered
By Francis
In the 29th Henry Russel Lec-
ture yesterday, Dr. Thomas Fran-
cis, Jr., chairman of the epidemiol-
ogy department, described an epi-
demiological community as one of
"disease and abnormality."
These communities may be dom-
inated by either biological, social,
or human factors which cause the
disturbances, he explained. Man
is only a "joint tenant on earth"
and must struggle with parasites,
according to Dr. Francis.
Turning to polio as an example
of a disease in which man is a
dominant factor, the epidemiolo-
gist told of different reactions to
the disease by various racial
groups. Giving the tropics as an
example, he said that polio is so
widespread that children develop
immunity at an early age.
An effective vaccine, the pro-:
fessor concluded, may change sus-
ceptibility not only of the individ-
ual but of the entire group.
