(NEWS Staff It's Quite Common Medics Calm Panic Over Dysentery OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A .thousand or more Oklahomans may suffer this year from mild cases of Shigella disease which has taken four lives at Henryetta. "It's very Dr.. Kkk T. Mosley, public health commis- sioner, '-said -of has caused a near-panic by some Henryetta residents and a "crash" research program by state and lo- cal medical officers. Dr. Mosley said ShigeUa germs work their way into the small in- testine, and their effect 'on the human body ranges from none to death. Some people, he said, can adapt quickly to the new germs, while in others there is inflammation of the mucus membrane, congestion and swelling, and diarrhea. There are two types of carriers who have the germs but are not sick. One is the healthy carrier who never felt any ill ef- fects .from the invasion and1 the other is the convalescent carrier threw off'thc-effects period of, illness. Health Department records list four deaths in Oklahoma attrib- uted to- Shigellosis in 1957, two in 1958, none in 1959 and five in I960: Last year there were three deaths in Oklahoma caused by dysentery, but reports from coun- ty health officers do not specify .whether they were from Shigella or similar type germs. "Forj every death I'd say'there arc thousands who have Dr. Mosley said of Shigellosis. One medical study showed that of 88 persons exposed 50 per cent had no illness at all 'and -another 40 per cent'were only moderately sick, he said. Poor -sanitation is generally the cause 'for spreading' the" disease. Medical authorities are working this week in the Henryetta area, trying to find sources of the in- fectious disease. Dr. Moseley said a leaky septic tank or open sewer, can be ha- zards. He said the fact that Hen- ryetta has been harder hit this year doesn't necessarily mean that sanitary conditions there are worse than in other portions of the state. Common flies' often help spread the disease by carrying Shigella germs. Also.Dr. Mosley.said per- sons who drink or swim in con- laminated water can get the dis- ease. Shigella -dysentery1 is household the physician, said. IfoniTmember.of a family catches it, others are likely to' get the germs also. This fact was pointed .out by the outbreak in Henryetta. -Numerous cases have been reported but they were confined, to four or five fam- ilies.. Latest case is Jerry Ware, 14, an uncle of Karen Campbell, 2- year-old child who .died last Wednesday. The Ware boy at last report was. in good condition. Mundt Charges Officials Try To Help Estes WASHINGTON Sen. Karl E. Mundt, R-S.D., says that even after Billie Sol Estes was arrested "the Agriculture Depart- ment was still seeking methods by concessions already grant- ed to Estes could be legalized."

Sgt. Joseph Leonard, one of a team of crack Boston detectives working on the case, found the, prints on a trunk of the car. The automobile belonged to a subur- ban.

Route 3 in Plymouth. The signs have been turned over to the Post Office Department.
