Throughout the year, of the eight cases reported, 1 occurred in June, 4 in July, 3 in August. In 1943 for the same 3 months, there were 34 cases reported In June, 37 in July and 51 in August. According to public health reports published by the United States Public Health Service, the reported Incidence of poliomyelitis in the United States during 1943 was higher than in any previous year for which data are available with the exception of two years, 1916 and 1931. A low incidence was reported in 1942. It does not appear that differences in geography, climate, size of state | or distribution, density, or racial characteristics of the population are factors of importance in accounting for variations in numbers of polio- meylitis outbreaks, according to public health officials. Differences, Incompleteness of reporting, differences in proportion of non-paralytic cases of the disease or both, probably would account for the fact that some states may report, higher rates of Incidence than others in the same or even in different years, but could not account for the wide variations in the number of outbreaks, the county health report indicated. "There has been no consistent interval of time between severe outbreaks," the report continued. "The interval may be as short ns 2 to 4 years as in some places or in excess of 15 years ns in other places." Who'd ever guess the price of this Smart Handbag to be a tiny . . . 1.95 M, MM tor.

The news dispatch received by The California!! indicated that the $80,000,000 will be expended in District No. 6, embracing Madera, Fresno, Tulare, Kings and Kern counties where traffic maps enow one of the heaviest traffic flows in .the entire United States. The plans for the highway development were revealed Tuesday evening by Earl T. Scott, district engineer at the monthly meeting of the Tulare County Associated Chambers of Commerce. Included in the plans were the widening of United States highway 99 to a four-lane divided highway from 10.8 miles south of Bakersfield to the city limits, improvement of the highway through Bakersfield,' and the construction of a four-lane divided highway from Bakersfield to Snow Road (the other side of the underpass north of Bakersfield on. Highway 99), and from Cawelo to Famosa. Mr. Scott said plans also called for completion of the new Keene to Te- hachapl highway in Kern county and the completion of the Ducor cutoff in Kern and Tulare counties.
