CH 2-3091 Adv. Sickening Fingers Of Flu Reach Out By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The wave of Asian flu and influenza-like respiratory,-ailments is waning in some areas, but is continuing its slow westward movement across the nation. "The latest and about the only recent trend is westerly," said a spokesman at the U.S. Public Health Service's Communicable Disease Center in Atlanta. 1 The CDC said outbreaks of influenza-like illness have been confirmed in 29 states and the District of Columbia. Asian flu has been confirmed in the District of Columbia and 17 states, * * * including Kentucky, whose health department repprted late Tuesday .that the .Asian^virus had been isolated there. On the other hand, school authorities at St. Louis said absenteeism is declining. City health officials noted a drop in hospital care for flu patients. North Carolina officials said Asian flu cases are increasing in the western portion of the state and decreasing in eastern sec tions. About 2,000 new cases were reported Monday and there are indications the 5-week-old epidem ic will hit a peak this week. . * * * Some Ottawans Ailing But Nothing Abnormal The flu bug and colds are continuing to make their way around Ottawa homes and schools, but officials in most of the city schools report fewer absent students this week than in previous weeks. The exception is Garfield School where Principal Don Hoglund reported 40 pupils out yesterday and 41 today. Other grade school officials said today that the number of flu cases and colds are not above normal for this time of year. Two senior high school teachers and one secretary were nursing the flu today, according to W. P. Shepard, principal, but less than 20 students were missing. All the teachers and office staff of the junior high were at work today and the absent list was reported as normal.

(Herald Photo) May Knock Out Kansas Industry Lure TOPEKA (AP) - A bill that would knock out one of the state's lures for new industry may come up for debate in the Kansas Senate today. The bill would eliminate tax exemptions on buildings leased by cities to new industries. It touched off a major battle in the Senate Tuesday. THe bill was approved by the Assessment and Taxation Committee, but it came under fire from a group led by Sen. Paul Lamb, R-Caney. They lost a bid to remove it from the calendar and send it to the Committee on Industrial Development. Son. Clark Kuppinger, R-Prairie Village, who teamed with Sen. Frank Hodge, R-Hutchinson, to parry the attack, labeled the measure "the most important piece of legislation to come before the Senate this session." Hodge said it involves a .najor policy decision. Lamb said Chambers of commerce have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in attracting industry to cities in Kansas, using tax-exempt property as a lure. He said this was done under a 1961 law permitting cities to own buildings and equipment for lease to industry. "If we pass this bill, we have brought industries in under false reprecentation," Lamb said. Kuppinger said the 1961 law was "Kansas's first major stride toward socialism." The bill also would eliminate exemptions on property of educational, religious, or charitable organizations when it is leased for profit. Dr. Hudelson Candidate For Board Of Education Dr. John F. Hudelson, 404 W. 4th, announced today that he is a candidate for one of the board of education positions for School District No. 30. He is a life-long resident of Franklin County and a graduate of Kansas State University, Manhattan, in both business and veterinary medicine. Dr. and Mrs. Hudelson have three children, all of whom attend Eugene Field grade school. Three board positions are to be filled. Thus far only one other candidate, Vern Chesbro, has announced for the board of education. There are two candidates for Ottawa finance commissioner, J. R. Cheney and Lyle Hanes. Deadline for filing is noon Saturday, March 9. Primary election date, if a primary is necessary, will be Tuesday, March Dr. JOHN HUDELSON 19, and the city election will be held Tuesday, April 2. Kuppinger said later he favors corrective legislation before more in lusfry comes to the state on a tax-exempt basis. "If we don't do it this session, it might be too late," he said. "There will be too many industries, too many jobs involved." He said established industries feel cheated and some have threatened to leave unless given similar advantages. The Senate advanced 17 bills for final passage. Six would place state historical parks under the administration of the State Historical Society. Each operates as a separate state agency. Receiving tentative approval was an appropriations bill for op. eration of state penal institutions for fiscal 1964. It contains money for moving the Women's Industrial Farm from Kansing to the Atchison children's home and children from the home to the Kansas!' Neurological Institute at Topeka.' The women's farm would converted to a minimum prison. Also advanced was a bill permit seating of alternate ^ in criminal cases upon death serious illness of a close ,i of a juror. ~~ T " V '-
