'Shig a' Infection

Owasso Residents Have
Caught Oriental Disease
DETROIT, Aug. 8.-U)-Health of-
ficials mobilizedthe resources of sci-
ence todayto'prevent the spread of
"S$higa dysentery," a virulent Orien-
tal disease whichhastakentat least
si lives in Michigan.
A clinical study of cultures taken
from the body of a child who died
Sunday while visiting in Detroit was
awaited to determine whether she
was a seventh victim of the disease.
At Owosso, where the six other
deaths occurred, Dr. Don W. Guda-
kunst, state health commissioner,
said that 75 persons were suffering
from various forms of dysentery and
that 35 of them had some symptoms
of 'Siga," the most severe of all
types of;n the disease. He said the
diabosis of those 35 cases was not
Gundakunst Calls Meeting
Dr. Gudakunst said that the per-
sons now sunder treatment "seem not
to be dangerously ill, but clinically
their cases appear to be a continua-
taion of the disease."
The commissioner called a meeting
of, Shiawassee County physicians for
tonight, in Owosso to lay plans fo:
controlling the disease.
Owosso physicians expressed the
belief that the epidemic was waning.
They said that, of six children ad-
titted to hospitals in recent days ap-
parently suffering fromthe disease,
three were found to be suffering from
A milder form of intestinal infection.
Doctors expressed doubt that the
other three had the Oriental malady.
Diaddition to six-months-old Mary
Conrad, of Saginaw, who died in a
Detroit hospital of an intestinal dis-
order Sunday, three otherhildren
are under observation in a Detroit
hospital with similar symptoms.
Precasutions Taken
Dr. Bert U. Estabrook, acting city
health commissioner said he doubt-
seiy the disease was spreading to
Detroit but asserted that every pre-
caution was being taken to avert con-
taminationdofwater supplies, milk
sipplies orkfood.
The first death from "Shiga" dys-
etery occurred at Owosso on July 29.
All of the victims were chidren. At
least four had drunk water from an
open stream that had been dammed.
Autopsies disclosed that portions of
their large intestines h ad been de-
stroyed by a mysterious germ which
was isolated Saturday by the state
health department through experi-
ments conducted on a monkey.
Filip C.-Forsbeck, of the state de-
partment, said the disease did not
seem to be spreading bt rather that
the larger number of cases reported
were the result of greater vigilance.

and the safest car that engineering
skill can devise, and that available
money can build."
Paul G. Hoffman. president of the
Studebaker Corp., and'" head of the
Automotive Safety Foundation, also
spoke, giving safety campaigns credit
for reducing the fatality rate from
18 per 100,000000 vehicle miles in
1936 to 12 in thie first six, months of
this year.
"Accident reduction and relief of
congestiorl can be brought about only
by bringing trained men into the
picture who are equipp , to make a
scientific approach to the problem,"
Mr. Hoffman said. "Instead of offer-
ing theories, these experts are pre-
pared to present techniques in engin-
eering, education and enforcement
that have proven their effectiveness
beyond the shadow of doubt. It is
no longer a question of what to do,
but rather one of applying idis
known and proven. s r
"Tne most encouraging aspect of
this new war an accidents" Mr. Hoff-
man added, "is the fact that.We
have just gotten under way."
R. L. Forney, chief statistician of
the National Safety Council, also
spoke. He discussed, the analysis of
traffic accident reporting, including
methods used, deficiencies in present
reporting methods and their effect on
resulting information, factors and
results *in traffic: accidents, and
needed improvements in stati99tical
work. in safety and accident preven-
tion and- reporting.

New Nazi Air Giant Unveiled At T emplehof Airport In Berlin

'Super' is the mildest word Germans could find for this new Nazi air giant, a low-wing cantilever monoplane, Junkers JU90, which was unveiled
before the German Press Templehof airport, Berlin. Built for 40 passengers, the plane will be equipped with four air-cooled engines developing
5,600 horsepower, its present engines having a power output of only 800 horsepower each. The ships will have a maximum speed of 280 miles an hour,
using new engines, and the interchangeable power plant can be changed in half an hour.
