Because it is rare that we hear of a human dying from rabies, many people may have become complacent about this disease, which is always fatal unless treated. But according to local veterinarians, rabies is still around and growing, especially in New Braunfels. And because of this, all domestic animals need to be vaccinated. Since the beginning of the year, nine rabid animals have been identified in New Braunfels, compared to the three rabid cases which were identified by this time last year. According to Texas law, cats and dogs over four months old are required to be vaccinated against rabies. Immunization should also be kept up to date. Depending on the type of vaccine given, dogs should get booster shots every year or every three years. Cats are usually given boosters annually. Carnivorous wild animals such as skunks, raccoons, foxes, coyotes, bobcats and bats are commonly rabid. However, in New Braunfels, possums and even cows have been found to have the disease. And although it is sometimes considered "rare" to find the disease in domestic animals such as dogs and cats it is possible, according to veterinarians. Rabies is caused by a virus that attacks the central nervous system. Humans and animals can catch the disease through a bite or by contact between an infected animal’s saliva and a scratch, cut, scrape or mucous membrane of the victim. And in rare cases, the virus may be picked up from inhaling infected air, such as in a cave Anderson 'joins' debate WASHINGTON (AP) - From 600 miles away in a performance marred by technical glitches, John B. Anderson did his best to pretend he was in the same presidential debate with President Carter and Ronald Reagan. The blue curtains behind Anderson in Constitutional Hall matched the backdrop in the hall in Cleveland where Carter and Reagan made not one reference to their independent rival. In contrast, Anderson spent well over half his time attacking the positions and public records of Reagan and especially Carter. As Reagan and Carter finished each round of questions, the Cable News Network cut to its telecast to Washington and Anderson answered as if he were in the same room as the major party nominees. "Mr. President,” Anderson said as if personally addressing Carter at one point, "the time has come to level with the American people.” Afterwards, Anderson conceded that he "had a somewhat restricted audience.” At most, some of Cable News’ 3.5 million subscribers, plus another few million viewers of independent and public television stations chose to watch the Reagan-Carter-Anderson version of the debate. That compares with an estimated 85 million persons who tuned in the three major television networks telecast of Carter and Reagan alone. Nonetheless, Anderson insisted, "I thought it gave me an excellent opportunity to illustrate the very sharp differences I have with both President Carter and Governor Reagan on most essential issues in the campaign.” Generally, Anderson seemed more relaxed and spontaneous than he did in his own debate appearance against Reagan in Baltimore last Sept. 21. He portrayed himself as a man of peace, more capable and willing to negotiate with America’s allies in perilous times and avoid the threat or reality of war. Today. Anderson was scheduled to begin a final week of campaigning with a trip to Philadelphia anil Morristown, N.J. ★ The debate Continued From Page 1A participating only on the fringe of the main event. The Illinois congressman watched the Cleveland debate from a stage in Washington and responded to the same questions. On the issue of nuclear war, Anderson said he saw no difference between Carter and Reagan. "I have become convinced there really is no significant difference between them on whether we can fight a limited nuclear war,” said Anderson. "There is no such thing as limited Taking stock nuclear war.” Carter and Reagan started slowly like two boxers warily testing each other out in the opening round of a championship bout. But the action began to heat up when the second question from the four-person panel dealt with inflation. Responding first, Carter blamed OPEC increases in oil prices which he called "oil shocks” for the high inflation rates, particularly during the first quarter of 1980, and said his policies for dealing with the economy are "very sound and very carefully considered.” By contrast he said that George Bush, now Reagan’s running mate, once described the GOP nominee’s proposal for a 30 percent cut in income tax rates to be phased in over a three-year period as "voodoo economics” that would boost the inflation rate to 30 percent. Reagan retorted that Carter has broken many of the economic pledges of his 1976 campaign and has tried to place the blame for inflation on OPEC, the Federal Reserve Board and the American people.

San Antonio 625 4411 BRAUNTEX 2 State The blustery cold front that moved through the coastal plains brought brisk winds and cloudiness to the area, while the mercury plunged in the Panhandle. It was just plain cold early Wednesday in Dalhart, which posted a 23 degree reading. Amarillo had a shivery 24, and it was 25 in Lubbock. Abilene and Wink were slightly w armer at 30 degrees. Even South Texas was cool, with readings mainly in the low 50s. McAllen had the early morning high of 53, but it was 48 in Victoria and 49 in Brownsville. There was some light rain early in the day. The forecast calls for more cloudy skies in the east and south, but sun for the west and northwest. where rabid bats roost. Basically there are two types of rabies, the "excited” or furious form and the paralytic or "dumb” type. A change in personality and behavior, hoarseness, convulsive seizures, excessive salivation, fear of water, which results from painful spasms of the muscles used in swallowing and breathing and finally death are all symptoms of the "excited” type rabies. Symptoms of the paralytic type include high fever, malaise, headache, vomiting, pain in the area of the bite. weakness and numbness, followed by a staggering gait, paralysis and eventually death. If the suspected animal is a stray animal, it usually is killed immediately to have its brain examined for rabies. In the case that the responsible animal appears to be healthy or is a pet animal, it is usally confined securely in a kennel, (since a rabid animal may try to run away) and observed for IO days. A veterinarian should examine the animal before it is released from confinement. Unless the animal suspected of having rabies is tested and found to be free of rabies, immunization of the victim should begin immediately. If the animal appeared healthy at the time of the bite, a 10-day waiting period before starting rabies shots is considered safe, in most cases. If the animal cannot be found, a physician should decide if immunization is necessary. To help prevent rabies, any animal bite should be washed immediately and thoroughly with soap and water. A tetanus shot may also be needed. * Aquarian Billage * Oompah Music.
