PAGE TEN BLYT11EVILLE (AUK.)' COU1UKK NI5WS APKI1. 28, ]i)-IV Claim 6 Per Cent Of Population Are Paralysis Virus Carriers BY PADI, F. EMIS (United Tress Science \Vrlltr) NEW YORK, 'April 26. (UP)—Results of an oxjieriment showed today that probably six per cent of the population in an infantile paralysis epidemic area art carriers of the virus that causes the disease. The report, by Dr. Joseph •!•. Melnick of the Yale University School of Medicine and published in the Raps .Red Cross J. C. Tralian, mayor ot blasl- , slriclien Texas Cily, Tex., sharply criticized the work of the Red , Cross in the disaster area, dc; Glaring "too many people arc ! coming up to Cily Hall lo tell us ; they have appealed to the Red Cross for aid and that help has ' been denied them." American journal of 'Hyjjlenc, was based on lests niuOe in >Ncw York City and Chicago. The experiment was a significant slop in the efforts of polio scien- lisls to gain more knowledge of what causes Infantile parnlysis to spread and to determine how prevalent it may be in the general population clurins an epidemic. The experiments showed Ihal sewers serving tli e areas where |»- lio was 'Prevalent virtually were alive v.-ith the crippling vims. The tests were made both during ami after Itlic periods of epidemic r.nd it was found that the volume of virus in solvers rapidly diminished as the epidinitc waned. Mclnick'.s report said that monthly tests for Iho polio virus in New York City's ran 1 sewage were carried oul from 1!HO Ihronuh HI1S md in Chinigo dunnf; 1943 wbe.'i Unit city had a major outbreak nf infantile o-aral.vsis. Hhesus monkeys were used in Ihc tests. The sewage was collected at disposal plants ivhbh .served the clm- sen areas, placed in refrigeration r.nrt then prepared for injection into Hi,, experimental animals. "Cnlonlalions have lieon made." Melnick's rrpnrl savs. "which show that in Chirano G,roo.03a monkey mf(-;tion. s rlose s of virus wore Icav- ini? a sewnsc disposal plant per minute at the time of collodion. "In New York. fiCO.COO doses ))!>r minute were entering a sewage collection station.'' •Hr further ii'eimrlecl that aliont three ounces of liniiian scwase may coiilain 10.C03 monkey infections -loses of virus. In olhe'r words, cnoiipb germs in thai sjnnll amount cif substance to cause 10.00.0 monkeys to come down with paralysis. Slop That Man! f ; ",!'*'.' 'a!

She had aisvays been known as Sophie van Eyck's granddaughter. Did she want lo remain so all (her life? 11 would be easy. Granny ! -would leave her well provided 'for. She could probably find someone to marry her and plenty oE companions eager to welcome the only living descendant of the :i;reat actress. She could have a comfortable, even a distinguished life, by coasting along on her grandmother's name, j But did she want thai? ''© k If nol, what did she want? •' Certainly not a career of any kind for herself. She had not Ihc smallest talent. Did she want position? Consequence? Quite' suddenly sbe knew exactly what she wanted. She was just ^n ordinary girl and she wauled Avhat all girls want: to fall in uove, fo. be loved, to have a family of her own. Slie wanted a family group and connection that had nothing lo do with her grandmother's fame " " money. In other words, -Sally Bagot. 1 Tiiis conclusion VicJjria arrived at quite as much through her emotions as with ;ior mind, for she realized sirriiltancously thai unless she got yhat she wanted her heart would break. < This knowledge made it impossible lor hi f to lie around supinely and x.rfit for Sally lo call for jlier. Although 'not normally, an energetic person, she fell Ihc need now'of exercise and occupation. She would help llalhaway in the !;iyden, she decided. Since he was t> busy, and Hardeners so scarce, [faUiaway bad been able to j;wc Madame van Eyck only two days a week and (he flower beds were sadly in need ot weeding. The weeds were everywhere. Vicky got down on her bands and 'ittce.s- and began clearing Ihc base ot each flower wilh meticulous arc. She weeded daintily—as she did everything—trcntiug each Jlanl as Ihongli it were the only one of ils kind in the world. And she thought, about her unaccountable and sudden love lor Sally Bagot. » • • " ' \/"ICKY had forgotten about Godfrey Mansuriclgu when she heard a man's voice behind her saying, "Hello — is anybody home?" Startled, she screwed around and s(|uinlcd up at him, sitting back on her heels. lie was looking over a barberry hedge and her first thought was surprise that he was so short; the hedge nearly hid him. Then she wondered why lie was so slout. lie wore a grnv business suil which looked as if it were straining to cover him, and abAvo his black bow lie his lace was cbcrnbictilly round. "Hello," she said. . "Arn I in the right place"" he asked calmly. and Uncl! Max's sl\j wanted "1 re," Vicky resigned. She got (o her feel. "I'm sorry no one met you. We don't use the car much nnw, of course. Tlie lircs are so old." Ho shrugged. "Naturally, I never expect lo be met. I prefer my independence. I might have decided at the last minute not lo come." Vicky looked at him, puzzled She had heard a good many itif- fcrenl accents among the international idlers r,n the Riviera, hut was unable to place the onu she now heard. It was certainly not American —suvl she bad ulivnys understood !Ur. cuiiic from Buffalo—nor was It 'v'renrb, Herman or English. "Well I'll show you in," she taid, "and tell everyone you're here." He followed her through the French doors nml sbe led the way lo Ihc drawing, room. The minute he saw the picture over the man(el lie came lo a halt beneath if, feet spread apart on (he carpel and both hands thrust into his coat i«)i:l:cls. Olio!" he exclaimed. "I sec I sure am in (he right pjac-c! Many limes I've looked at that portrait of Sopbie us Juliet." His ni-n- nounced accent made the "r's" roll out across Ihc room. "Portrait" sounded like "pori'rrrlrail." I lold Pcrraull," ho went on, Ihal it was no good, too. Docs he still pjiint her once a year? Oh—that burlesque of genius! And lie talks of art!" * * <• "WELL!" said Victoria, failing back in aslonishmmt. "I didn't expect you to be like this." "What are you Uilkinj.; about?" he demanded. "I've been like this for sixty-five years. Who are you. anyway?" "I'm Victoria Jenkins." He came toward her slowly, fiaziiiff intently at her face. "So " he SLiid, his voice suddenly gentle, "you're Victoria. Very nice, too. The last lime I saw your grand- niolhcr, she had jus! had word of your birlh." At thai moment they heard the voice of Sophie coming toward them down the stairs. "Godfrey! Godfrey!" she was calling, her inflection lyrical. Sophie entered the room with n beautiful movement.
