Poliomyelitis it or Gas from broken main kills Sheboygan woman Sheboygan. ?" a mrs. Ida Gruenke 64, died saturday at the Hospital where she was taken thursday after being overcome by Gas presumably from a broken main. She and her husband were paralysis is an acute generalized systemic disease caused by a virus and characterized by inflammation of various parts of the Central nervous system but particularly by the damage to or destruction of the Large motor cells in the spinal Cord with resultant paralysis of the voluntary Muscles innervated by them. Infantile paralysis is an old disease. Or. Underwood of London wrote a paper describing the disease in 1784. The first epidemic in this country occurred in Louisiana and was described by or. George Colmer in 1841. Drs. Flexner and Lewis discovered by experimentation on monkeys that the disease was caused by a filter i Able virus. Much valuable inform Bation has accumulated in the i last 37 years but the real Mode of invasion of the Central nervous system is still a mystery. Better than cure is the positive Protection of the child in the first place. Much has been said and written about treating infantile paralysis but i have never seen these sources before they attack the victim. The consensus of opinion is that the causative agent is a virus which enters the body through the nose and travels along the olfactory nerve to the brain. It is carried into the nose by infected fingers or infected infantile water and hence blown into the Toledo but that there was no Way of knowing from what station. Ten 3-cent Stamps were attached to the package and the Fargo address was in Pencil. Being 70 would make most women Content to Park their frail san Antonio a Ltd a ten year old Evelyn Heck was in a Hospital Here being prepared for an acute peritonitis operation As the result of a court order.

Remained in critical condition. Of i Cia is of the Wisconsin Public corp. Found a broken Gas main 30 feet from the Gruenke Home and theorized the Gas had seeped through the ground into the basement infantile paralysis and this is All the More strange because preventive Medicine is the goal of All medical men. My purpose Here is to bring to the Light of print for the first time some suspected sources of infection end to attack sinuses by the old and bad habit of compressing one Side of the nose and blowing violently. If the air cannot escape through the opposite nostril due to mechanical obstruction or congestion due to a cold allergy or any other cause this germ Laden air is blown into the sinuses and up the eustachian tubes into the Middle ear. These cavities Are warm and moist and furnish Ideal incubators for the propagation of germs which Are in turn discharged into the nose and Down the Throat. Here they Are swallowed and cause a gastrointestinal infection. The nasal mucous membrane absorbs readily and rapidly so that this virus May easily find its Way by absorption along the path of the olfactory nerve and blood vessels to the brain and no doubt this is the Mode of ingress. The characterise symptoms of acute infantile paralysis Are similar to influenza. There May be sudden severe headache sore Throat fever nausea and vomiting drowsiness profuse perspiration and diarrhoea. The incubation period is supposed to be in m six to 23 Days. The Ages at which one May contract the disease is from 4 years to Middle life. The disease is spread by direct or indirect Contact with the j Canton ?"tip a a smelly Elbe a the pig no longer is a member of the Canton players i Guild cast presenting a january i secretions of those affected. Several Days May elapse Between the systemic and the Menin Getic j1 co Vii stage during this time the child to ii May seem Well and plays with his companions thereby spreading the disease. It is no Mere coincidence that infantile paralysis occurs at the latter period of the vacation season and that it starts in the Northern resort area much earlier than in the Southern area. It May be no Mere coincidence that the sanitary setup is negligible in some Northern Lake regions. Excretions Are washed into the lakes by the Rains. Also those Little Cabins made famous by James Whitcomb Riley and Chick Sale pollute the water and Wells by seepage. We have been warned that this is a common source of typhoid fever epidemics. Why not infantile paralysis the fact that in some lakes Many hundreds of dead fish Are washed up on the Shore at this time is significant that there is something lethal in the water. The question May a � arise As to whether we infect the i Ruffian wants funds fish or vice versa. It is a Noble gesture to Send boys and girls to summer Camps but it is a fad fact that infantile paralysis Breaks out in Many of them. This last year has claimed More victims than any year since 1935. Wisconsin has had 1,056 cases up to november 1949. The United states has had 72,000 cases.
