as Severe as Lost Year DCS Moines pa ralysis in Iowa has been only about half as severe this year as it was up to the same time a year ago In addition there are no re ported epidemic areas in the state whereas 4 counties in the western section were in the epidemic stage around the first of July last year Dr Ralph Heeren director of the state health departments divi sion of communicable diseases says that in comparison with the record incidence of the disease in 1948 the situation this year ap pears encouraging Lpngr Time to Go But it is a long time between now and October and there is no way of telling when the peak will be reached he added Records of the division up to July 2 showed 40 polio cases in 29 counties As of July 3 1948 there were 74 cases in 17 coun ties At that time the disease had become epidemic in Harrison Os ceola Pottawattamie and Wood bury counties As of the present time this year no county has more than i cases reported Dr Heeren said 9 Cases Iowa started off the year with 9 polio victims in January but of these were carryovers from 1948 Two more cases were re ported in February one in March 7 in April and 2 in May Then the chart began to rise There were 2 new cases in th first week of June 5 in each o the next 2 weeks and 4 in th 4th week for a June total of 16 For the week ended July 2 thre new cases were reported Although prevalance of polio does not appear to be so severe this year there certainly is no reason to let down the bars Dr Heeren said Minnesotan Held on Larceny Count Charles eld in the county jail here Thursday was Joe Kulas
