O-O" MEASLF_~ Measles cases in Kansas are on the rise again, increasing from 26 cases in September, the low month for 1940, to 325 cases in December there have been more cases re- ported since the first of January, 1941, than there were in the last six months of 1940. Since measles is a disease which should always be given careful nursing, with isolation of the patient to protect others against the disease, and since it is characteristic of the disease that it usually becomes more prevalent in the spring sea- son, the state health department issues this warmng to the parents of Kansas children--guard your children against measles, and if they contract this disease put them to bed immediately, call your family physician, and see that cases are promptly reported to the "local health officers, and that your home is properly placarded. The symptoms of .measles show little variation, since practically all cases have catarrhal inflammation, fever, a blotchy eruption, followed by a fine, branny peeling of the skin. The skin eruption appears about the. third day, at the peak of the fever. Eruptions on the muc- ous surfaces appear early, and confirm the diagnosis of measles, as it is peculiar to and character- istic of the disease. The spots are Improved Vision Shows Better Safety Records Business organizations throughout the country are learning that high- er visual standards of workers re- sult in improved efficiency and bet- ter safety records, according to the Better Vision institute. A company using a large number of motor trucks had 17 accidents during 1~/~ years. One of its drivers was in- volved in three accidents during that period. Then the company conduct- ed eye examinations of all drivers, requiring men with visual defects to have them corrected. During the next year and one-half period acci- dents dropped down to only two. The driver who had three accidents during the first period was found in the eye tests to have a serious de- fect in vision. This was corrected, and during the second period he had a perfect record with no accidents. Another company which was spending an average of $12.50 per worker annually in medical atten- tion and compensation conducted a visual survey of its workers. Defec- tive eyes were brought up to stand- ard and goggles were provided for use in those tasks with unusual vis- ual hazards. The program was backed up with a safety educational campaign. Annual compensation and medical costs have dropped to $1.96 per worker. A third company has reduced ac- cidents by two-thirds through eye examinations, improved lighting, painting of walls and machinery to improve seeing conditions, and oth- er safety activities. Since the pro- gram was inaugurated no lost-time accidents have occurred in the plant in 1,100,O00 consecutive man-hours of employment. Antiserum Increases Hope for Cancer Cure Discovery of a cancer antiserum which increases the hope for cancer cure has been announced-by ~wo small, bluish-white, and rounded by a red zone; they ap- pear on the inside surface of the cheek, next to the molar teeth. The stage of measles preceding the eruption is frequently mistaken for a common cold, and as the disease is highly ~ommunicable at this stage the germs are widely spread because, as a rule, we take no common sense precautions either in treating or protecting others from a cold. Measles cause a congestion and inflamma- tion of the respiratory tract, the delicate membrane that lines the eyelids and the accessory sinuses--- these conditions make compliza- tions of the disease fairl common. Complications may take the form of bronchitis, pneumonia, and acute inflammation of the middle ear. Measles itself seldom causes death--fatalities result from com- plications, in most cases pneu- monia, with the highest fatality rate in children less than five years of age.--Kansas State Board of Health.

They claim the antiserum reacts positively with blood serum from persons with cancer of the same or- gan as 'that from which the anti- serum was developed, but does not react at all with blood serum from healthy people or those with illness other than cancer. This may be of value, they say~ in assisting or confirming cancer diagnosis. Through increased knowledge it may aid in treatment. The doctors do not claim it to be a cure, or even yet a treatment, as at the present it is but a small step in the fight against the disease. Many more tests must be made and possibilities explored, but they hope it leads to a new attack on the disease. They claim to have tested their antiserum with preparations from cancers of 14 different organs and found that it reacted only with can- cer of the same organ as that used in producing the antiserum. Apparently the serum is specific not only for a certain organ but also for a certain species, as the antiserum produced from human cancers was found not to react with blood serum from cancerous ani- mals, even though the cancer might be of the same organ.

The collec- tion occupied 30 showcases in the Wherland home and included dolls of every size and nationaliW, from all parts of the world. Mrs. Whet- land began her unique collection when she decided to keep her chil- dren's dolls as remembrances. Through the years she added to this hobby until her home became a little girl's '~paradise." The collec- tion will find a new home with Mrs. Wherland's daughter in Eugene, Ore. Motorists Warned About Lights All motorists should make certain to turn on their headlights when re- quired by law, if for no other reason than personal safety, reports the public safety department of the Na- tional Automobile club. The law re- quires that headlights be turned on- one-half hour after sunset, during inclement weather and such other times as vision is impaired. Last year 330 vehicles involved in fatal accidents and 7,660 vehicles in non- fatal accidents in the United States had one or both headlights out. Turning on the lights would have prevented many of these injuries and saved many lives, the National Automobile club believes. Improving Human Race Abuse of alcohol, faulty system of schooling and the narrowing of man's productive time, are the three great problems that challenge med- icine, psychiatry and modern sci- ence today, Dr. C. Charles Burlin- game, of Connecticut, one of the pioneers in mental treatment, re- cently said. The mental weakness of men and women, according to Dr. Burlingame, is contributed by "mis. education" which permits a college education for all who wish it, even though they may not have the brain for white collar training; the con- trol of alcohol and its removal from the category of social and health problems.
