Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1949, Winona, Minnesota FAIR TONIGHT, WEDNESDAY Basketball Tonight KWNO-FM VOLUME 49, NO. 241 WINONA, MINNESOTA, TUESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 29, 1949 FIVE CENTS PER COPY EIGHTEEN PAGES More Children Need Gifts This Yuletide HERE are 65 chl dren in the 94 families contain- ing 230 persons on direct city relief, according to to- day's record of Mrs. Katherine Lambert, city re- lief commissioner. Direct relief families are the emergency cases of the city and these needy fam- ilies are not cov- ered by any of the other forms of more permanent relief. In addition 10 these 65 children, there are 232 children In Winona receiving aid from the county wel- fare board and 38 children In board- Ing homes in the city, according to the records of William P. Werner executive secretary of the county welfare board. In addition to these families there are the children in the families re- ceiving aid from various veteran! agencies and from war insurance j claims paid directly to the parents! or guardians. None of these agencies has made any provision to give Christmas gifts to these children. The allowance In every case is just sufficient to pro- vide every day living. The allowance for clothing i? extremely small. Every one of these families strug- gles to make Its allowance cover Its living costs. It means giving up a great many little things enjoyed every day by other children. The vision of an empty stocking always looms very large each Christmas inj such families. Investigations made] so far this year show that there hasj been no change. The prospects for! empty stockings for some of these! children on Christmas morning is very real today. In Operation Since 1912 Since 1912, the Good Fellows have[ tried to give each needy child of this! community a gift on Christmas. Thej fact that the organization still op-i erates and reached 625 children last year is evidence of its success. Ap- proximately 300 pairs of shoes purchased, Just to mention one Item. This Christmas, the Good Fellows have set a goal of reaching every. needy child of the community with at least one article and If possible to outfit each child with warm under- wear shoes and overshoes and a coat or new dress. It will make their Christmas a happy one. Our aim ane Cominform Moves on Tito Neomycin, Science's Newest Wonder Drug, Given to Humans for 1st Time at Pennsylvania hospital reported today one of science's newest "wonder" has been given to humans for the first time. Two male patients suffering from urinary tract infections were administered the drug, the hospital said, with com- plete cures effected after six days. Neomycin is a drug-brother of streptomycin. Both are made from the same material soil fungus. Treatment of the two pa- tients was supervised by Dr. Garfield G. Duncan, director of medicine at Pennsylvania hospital. "The drug had never been given to humans Dr. Duncan said. "It was admin- istered successfully only on ex- perimental animals. We weren't sure, and still aren't, whether it would have harm- ful toxic effects on humans." The two patients, both re- ported near death, agreed to risk possible after-effects on chance the drug might work. The two who underwent suc- cessful neomycin treatment were Ralph Pitzer, 47-year-old Biglersville, Pa., fruit grower, and Alfred Jones, 64, of Phila- delphia. Pitzer, fighting a 105-degree fever, was given his first intra- musculpr injection of neomy- cin September 3. He showed immediate improvement. Other injections were given at four-hour intervals. Within 14 hours, all signs of the germ had vanished. Injections were continued for five more days at six hour intervals. Pitzer said the only discomfort he ex- perienced was at the point of injection. Today Pitzer is working reg- ularly and taking no further medication. Jones first received treat- ment September 15. Six days later neomycin injections were halted. Eight pharmaceutical firms are manufacturing neomycin but only in minute quantities because its final effect on hu- mans is still not known.
