Informa-Thon Key Telephone Numbers Listed Two key telephone numbers were listed Wednesday as part of the educational ‘Tnform-a-Thon” project sponsored this week by the 15-organization Cedar Rapids Venereal Disease Task Force Alliance. The “Inform-a-Thon” will climax Saturday with distribution of a question and answer pamphlet entitled, ‘ Plain Talk about Venereal Disease.” Tile telephone numbers listed by Mrs. Clinton Dennis, chairman of the task force, were: Foundation II, 362-2174 for information or assistance. Anyone who thinks he or she may have a VI) problem and doesn t know where to turn is urged to telephone Foundation II. Jaycees, 364-5135, for setting up organizational programs. A corps of speakers, including both professional people and laymen, has been trained. Pro-1 grams are available without charge, for organizations for adults and for young people. Richard Hayslip, in charge cf Saturday’s phase of the ‘Tn- form-a-Thon", also said Wednesday that persons who do not receive one of the educational leaflets can telephone the Jaycee office for a copy. The pamphlet stresses three key points: I. Venereal disease is increasing; 2. VI) can be treated successfully with prompt diagnosis; and 3. VI) can be prevented. Linn county statistics show a total of 743 cases of venereal disease last year. The task force pamphlet terms the increase in VD “a public health emergency of the first order, killing, crippling and seriously endangering the mental and physical well-being of millions of people.” National figures indicate that some form of VD strikes someone in the U.S. every 15 seconds, or four victims every minute. 30 YEARS AGO — Thousands were routed by flood waters in midwestern states, bringing a mounting death toll.
