It left behind 25 damaged or destroyed tanks and a num- ber of armored personnel ear- ners, they reported. In Iibid, 50 miles north of Am- man, the guerrillas said the fith Iloyal Artillery Battalion was firing indiscriminately at the town, "but our fighters are hold- ing fast and their morale is high."

Confirmed diphtheria cases stood at 102, with 29 more pa- licnt.s listed as "clinically con- firmed" liul unproved in labora- tory lesls. There also were six suspected cases. Tlie National Center for Dis- eases Control in Atlanta said it is the worst diphtheria epidemic in the United Stales since a De- troit outbreak in 1056, when 141 cases were recorded. Dr Marthalyn Green, head of communicable disease control here, says she sees no signs of the epidemic ending in the near future. Other local authorities have said the outbreak may last a year. emic The disease, which can dam- age the heart and'nervous sys- tem, has killed two children here this year. The mother of one of the victims said Wednesday that an autopsy showed her son's heart was so heavily damaged "it looked like a pulp." She said the boy, C, who died Aug. i, had received two shots in the diphtheria immunization series, but a cold prevented him from receiving the third inocu- lation required for full protec- tion. Children need three diphtheria shots. Anyone over .age 6 needs two. Boosters should be obtained every 10 years, or every live in epidemic situations. Despite repeated warnings, public response to a mass im- munization campaign has lagged bo' :n-i rlfirc'-s1 hopes.
