Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Negroes sacrificed on science altar Friday, July 91, 1972 THI ItTHSRIDCI HERALD By JIM DENTLEY ATLANTA (Reuter) Char lie Pollard, a black Alabam farmer, did not know until thi week that he had syphilis. Th U.S. public health service ha ictllin was discovered during the Second World War, It was found to afford a cure if used early. A decision was made in 1946 to withhold penicillin from the diseased group. "There is absolutely no tion that some of these men could have been saved, no ques- tion whatsoever'1 Printz said. In 1969, Printz said, the CDC reviewed the study and decided that to begin giving massive doses of penicillin to the re- maining participants would be "too great a risk." It was de- cided instead to give the best medical treatment available to the survivors for any illness they might suffer. At least 161 deaths by that time had been reported among the participants, seven as a di- rect result of syphilis and 154 from heart disease, a related ride effect. Elizabeth Kennebrew, a nurse with the Macon County board of health, spends most of her time tracking down the medical his- tories of he Eurvivors. "I don't really think most of them know what is going she said. "As far as they're con- cerned, they just joined a gov- ernment health program when times were hard and now it doesn't matter ono way or the other." One who didn't know until Tuesday was Charlie Pollard, 66, a black cotton fanner who has gotten free blood tests and a certificate for participation from the government. In 1932, Pollard was 26. He had syphilis. His county had the highest rate of syphilis In the U.S. at that time. He took advantage of a public health official's offer of a free blood test and was told a few days later he had "bad blood." "They been doctoring me off and on ever since Pol- lard said Tuesday at his home in Notasulga, Ala. "And they give me a blood tonic." "Back in the he said, "they give me a certificate, saying I had been in the pro- gram 25 years and since then they don't come around as much." When the victims die, the gov- ernment orders an autopsy and provides a burial, of charge. Absolute discharge for cadet KINGSTON, Ont.
