WEDNESDAY, 'APRIL 20, 1949 ELYTHEVIU.K (AUK.) COLmiKK NEWS PAGE SEVEN 90 Persons Sick In 'Smog' Tests Experiment Seeks To Find Cause of Fatal Conditions Rehabilitation Counselor Is Lions Speaker Girl, 1 1, of 'Weeping' Statue fame, Denies Possessing Any Power NKW YORK. April 20. (.Vl—' jusi H litile utrl mid 1 hjwen't R. Ooley, counselor fof the i any powers." Air Reserve Unit Is Attached to Bomber Squadron DONORA, Pa., April 20. (*D— More than 90 persons were ill today and a dozen others had left town ns government experts tried to duplicate smog conditions -suspected of causing 22 deaths last full. Doctors reported numerous cases of hoarseness, sore throats and roughs as the Public Health Service sought for the third rtiiy to determine if the suffocation cases last October were caused by A combination of smoke and fog. Through the tests, the Rovom- ment Agency hopes to prevent a re-; currence of the October tragedy. As a result of the deaths last fall the zinc smelters of American Steel A: Wire Co. were operated at limited capacity. They operated full blast last Monday so that resulting fumes could be observed in connection with the tests. Dr. Willlnm Rongaus. Donora Borough health officer, said the effects reported by residents yesterday were "like the early symptoms during the smog." Some persons have left town for Ihe period of the test, particularly those suffering from asthtnntic and heart Ills. These were particularly . vulnerable last October. f Neighbors Suffer Worst sufferer yesterday was (lie little town of Webster, just across the Monongahela River from Donora. Prevailing winds blew from Donora toward Webster yesterday and citizens there said they got the full effect of the fumes issuing from the zinc plant. The Webster Society for Better Living, which had asked the government to make the test, held an emergency meeting last night. Members agreed the test, perhaps, was succeeding "loo well." There was some talk of asking the government to call H off but no action was taken. Allen Kline, secretary, said 25 Webster folk had nought medical treatment and about half of them had left town. A Webster nurse said she treated two persons Tor nausea and headache. She said she received phone calls from 56 others report- Ing similar troubles. Dr. Rongaus said 12 persons reported "smog symptoms" to him. He said he did not believe the fumes sufficiently strong to cause any ae- rlous danger. Aside from the exodus of some ^ persona, both Donora and Webster Jr were talcing the experiment calmly. Most of them appeared to be willing to put up with temporary discomfort if it would bring them safety in the future.
