Led by LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Mur. 30 <U.K>— Nearly one-haLf at the communicable diseases showed Increases In Arkansas, some up to 500 percent, for the first 12 weeks of 19«. over the same period lost year , Reletisln gthe weekly morbidity re|Kjrt here today. Dr. T. T. Ross State Health Officer, said, however, that none of the diseases reached the epidemic stages—except Influenza early in the year— and there was no cause for ahum. Tlie largest livcreafje was influenza, Jumping from 1563 cases In the firsl 12 weeks of 1845 to'5190 cases for the same period this year. A total of 109 cases were rejwrted last week, nearly twice tin? 50 cases last year. Measles is up 20 per cent this yenr with 929 cases reported against 243 last yeatr. , Dr. Ross said that measles occurs In cycles at two and three yenr intervals, and 1948 appeared to be a peak .year. A total of 161 , cases were reported. last week, a drop of 29 cases from the previous we/* but 135 more than the corresponding period last year. • Thirty-two cases were reported In Sebastian County to lead the stntc, and Deslm County was second with 31. Children not immune to measles by having had Uie disease may be protected with . Immune serum Globulin, available to all physicians through the state Health Department, Dr. Ross said. i In spite of an intense drive on malaria, there were 105 cases re- IJOiied so far this year against 4C last year. Dr. Ross attributed the increase to better reporting by a malaria-conscious medical profes- i sion, and in a lesser degree to the return of 'servicemen who contracted tlie disease In the Pacific. German measles were up more than 100 per cent with 215 cases reported this year compared to 90 In 1910. 'Other diseases showing increases were diphtheria, gonorrhea, mumps. 3neumonia, poliomyelitis and ty- :>hold fever. On the credit side of the ledger, lowever. at least 14 diseases shew- ed declines. They were cancer, chickenpox. ery.sii>elas, hookworm, meningitis, nellagra, scarlet fever, septic sore throat, smallpox, syph- lls, trachoma, tubeVcuk>&is, un- diilimt fever and whooping cough.
