Gamma Globulin To Aid in Polio Battle

An infant in the field of medi-
cine, gamma globulin, will be us-
ed in Washtenaw county this year
in an effort to combat the dread-
ed disease, polio.
The precious fluid found to be
effective against polio last year
is a purified protein compound
obtained only from human blood.
The small part of the whole blood
that is used in the manufacture
of gamma globulin contains the
body's defense mechanisms against
* * *
ACCORDING TO health offi-
cials, the serum acts only as par-
tial immunity. In order to be ef-
fective it must be injected seven
days before polio attacks the vic-
tim. At present supplies for the
nation are limited.
In Washtenaw county the
serum will be distributed from
the three principle hospitals.
and from the County Health
Department. It will be given
through a physician to anyone
under 30 years of age in a
household that has been direct-
ly exposed to polio. It will also
be given to any pregnant wo-
man in such a household.
Dr. Otto K. Engelke, city health
officer, stated that the supply of
gama globulin for the county is
adequate now under the above
ration plan but will probably not
be sufficient for the entire sum-
mer. Any physician will be able
to obtain the serum whether he
is a resident of the county or not
and may administer it under the
restrictions set up by both state
and federal agencies.
THE POSSESSION of the ser-
um, however, is only part of the
entire program prepared to com-
bat, control, and care for polio

which contains one of the eight

tion, will await developments of

national pool, hospital equipment
will be obtained and dispersed as
the need develops. The Hospital
in addition to storing the equip-
ment is also able to maintain and.
repair the apparatus.
Reports of new cases of polio
have already begun pouring into
Washington. A new weekly high
of 403 cases last week brought the
total for this year up. to 3,525.
With the hot summer months now
beginning their run, the dangers

of contracting the disease increase.
Officials will make no predic-
tion as to the intensity of the
outbreaks this year, but the total
is higher now than at this time
in the record .year of 1952.
According to publications re-
leased by the county, however,
only the usual health precautions
need be taken. Some of those that
have been listedare living a nor-
mal life, avoiding excessive fati-
gue and getting plenty of rest.

Umn Postal Rat
er General Summerfield asked con-1
gress yesterday for mail rate in-
creases totaling $240,625,000 a
The largest increase in revenue
would result from raising the rate
on first class mail-such as a reg-
ular letter-by one cent to four
cents an ounce.
SUMMERFIELD estimated the
hike in letter mail would produce
an annual additional revenue of
15 million dollars.
He proposed that domestic air
mail go up "by one cent to seven
cents an ounce, for 15 million of
new revenue."
He also requested an increase
in regular second class rates for
newspapers, magazines and other
publications, totalling 19 million
dollars, and boosts in transient
second class rates adding one mil-
lion in new revenue.

Williams Kills
DETROIT-(P)-Governor Wil-
liams said yesterday local authori-
ties must continue to handle en-
forcement of current laws govern-
ing bingo games.
He told a press conference he
was surprised at Detroit police
commissioner Donald S. Leonard's
request for a conference aimed at
a uniform state-wide policy of
police activity against bingo.
Williams said he was aware that
the state Supreme Court ruled
bingo a lottery and therefore il-
legal. But, he said, state police
were limited in number and could
not cover every kind of violation.
"In addition, they must recog-
nize local authority. Any other
policy is contrary to anything we
have contemplated in the past,"
Williams said.
Leonard had suggested the Gov-
ernor call a meeting of law en-
forcement officers to reach a uni-
form policy because so-called
"charity bingo" was being permit-
ted in some communities and was
banned in others.
Army Worms Now
March on State
alerts went out yesterday to the
state's agricultural industry from
Michigan State College.
Ray Hutson, head of the college
entomology department, warned
that Army worms, now plaguing
neighboring states, have arrived
in Michigan.
He also alerted apple growers
to start spraying at once against
apple maggots.
Pointing out that the Army
worms have been reported in Cass
and Berrien counties, Hutson said
that conditions are ripe for their
spread through the state's south-
ern tier of counties. The worms
are most active, he said, during
the small grain harvest.
At the same time, apple grow-
ers were warned that the adult
moths which lay apple maggot
eggs are flying.

INTENSE FLAMES boil upward as firemen move into the rubble
of a building in central Philadelphia after an explosion wrecked
the four-tory warehouse. An automobile lies partly buried in the
right foreground.

Milton Caniff yesterday "initiated
this series of pariahs of the arts."
The creator of Terry and the
Pirates and Steve Canyon was re-
ferring to the University's summer
program of Popular Arts in Amer-
ica, intended to appraise mass
media of communication and their
place in modern contemporary so-

"WE ARE the minstrel men of
the age," he explained. "We've
taken over the mantle of those
wanderers who paid their way to
Cal-i-forn-i-a by telling stories.
"We occupy the same position
as Scherazade--she kept her
story going to keep her head on,"
the Ohio State graduate quipped.
Descended from a long history of
tradition, comic strips go back to
the codices of Yucatan "where the
people spoke in balloon form, too.
They read from right to left
around the building until they
came to the end, cartoonists never

men who drew Happy Hooligan
and Mutt and Jeff, learned right
out in Macy's window by trying
their wares out directly on the
"My strip means all things to all
people-the kids read it for the
fighting and adults get something
entirely different from it. People
don't read newspapers for news
anymore, they already know the
news over radio and television, but,
like the farmer, they read not to
see what has happened but to dis-
cover whether the editor is re-
porting correctly," he asserted.
So the cartoonist is continually
trying to keep up reader interest.
"Since the paper boy collects on
Saturday I always manage to have
boy get girl on Thursday so that
collection day's panel looks simi-
lar to this (demonstrating a comic

pily ever after.

Panel three-Hero (with torn
shirt on back, arms around hero-
ine): We'll have a house overlook-
ing a hill.
Heroine: Yes, but look! (She
points out window.)

bidding at the window.
"So the reader is worried about
whit is going to happen. Well, the
cartoonist is, too, but he's got 24
hours to decide," he pointed out.
Caniff, unlike many comic ptrip
creators today, writes and draws
his own cartoon. "It's much less
trouble," he said. "A writer comes
in in the morning, rubs his hands
and says 'It's a beautiful day, let's
get to work.'
"Right away, he calls for the
hero and heroine to see 20,000
Communists creeping over a wind-
swept hill and leaves the artist
to draw the horde of Red faces
trooping over the hill, Now I would,
as writer-artist have the heroine
at the window (Communists not
in strip at all) say to the hero,
'Look here come 20,000 Commu-
nists creeping over the hill.'
In the jam-packed auditorium
nearly bursting at the doors with
people standing to watch the
southpaw artist, Caniff began to
draw the title character in his
current comic strip, Steve Canyon
with the "lock of hair girls just
love to brush back, the built-in
gleam in his eye and what 'lady
novelists call a generous mouth."
Caniff changed his strip in 1947
from Terry and the Pirates to Can-

cartoonist wanted to have his own

oines was the fascinating Miss
