first Polio Case Reported Here
Racine'* first case of polio of the ISM season was reported Friday. Dr. Albert C. Edwards, city health commissioner, described the case as non-paralytic polio.
The victim is a 6-ycar-old girl, who lives on the near northside. She was taken to St. Mary's Hospital for observation.
Dr. Edwards said the State Board of Health has requested health departments to keep separate records of paralytic and nonparalytic cases for purposes of more accurate study.
Cases which present only symptoms of polio and fever are classed presumptive polio, and paralytic cases are defined as those in which definite weakness or paralysis has been detected, the Board of Health related Earlier Than filial
This year, gamma globulin, extracted from blood given during Red Cross blood donation drives, will be distributed for use in persons 19 years of age or less who live in the same household in which a clinically diagnosed acute case has occurred, and also for Ute in pregnant women who are household contacts to acute cases, the city health commissioner explained
The first Racine case this year was reported ll days earlier than last year, and was somewhat earlier than in recent years.

erations will continue every other day until 250,000 tons have been put on the 900-foot square dock. When the plant is completed to it* capacity, it will consume approximately 1,600.000 tuns < f ct .ii annually. The completed plant will coat an estimated $100,000,000. It is located on the shore at the Milwaukee-Racine County line.
tlvely high humidity have increased the problem in the West Racine area and innumerable complaints have poured into the City Hall.
The public hearing is the result of demands by the City of Racine that the Board of Health step in For the first time in the history a,u* find an immediate solution. of the Racine Water Department, it has been necessary to filter more than 18 million gallons of water a day. The average filtration for June was 18.032.000 gallons a day The previous record was 17,504,-000 gallons a day, made In June 1950
Water Department Manager Walter A. Pcirce said it also was the first time it has been necessary to deliver more than 17 million gallons to the city. The average delivered by high lift pumpage was 17,207,000, compared to the previous record of 16,678.000 gallons recorded in June, 1950.
Peirce said between 6 and 8 p. rn Tuesday, the city was using water at a rate of nearly 33‘» million. gallons a day, of which 27 4 million was being pumped and 6 million supplied from the Fifteenth St. standpipe.
Because of excessive water consumption, the water department manager today broadcast an appeal to the public. "We are asking users not to waste water," Peirce said. "This gives all an opportunity to have sufficient supply."
He pointed out that lawns fare better if well watered two or three times a week than if they are sprinkled lightly each day.
