BY 1'AUL J)E KIl'UIF \Vrillcn for NKA Service It was one of lhe most hope- arousing events in microbelmntliig history—lhe discovery, lale in 1936. that monkeys can be solidly protected against attack by infantile paralysis vims. Now the "men against the hiairii- ing death" hi their laboratories, and our public hcalthmcn. were fared with a key question: Are these means of monkey protection fiufc enough and simple enough to test In the field, against infantile p'.iralytis threats to America's children? Right nov, 1 lhc answer Is yes and no. Zinc sulphate is safe enough, but you cannot hqjie to guard a human being from tlie at- lack of Infantile paralysis,, ililless the zinc sulphate nose sprdy or riose wash thoroughly covers tile endings of the nerves of sinell. 'then there Is n complete loss ol the sense of smell, which hi children pcrists from one lo two weeks, iiiul in grownups for a month, and longer. Dr. R. sterling Pentecost of Toronto has proved that when you liui the zinc sulphate solution in with a rubber catheter, immediate loss of smell occurs in nil the children—ami this means that endings of the nerves of smell liave been completely covered. New that sure ways of covering tiie nerves of smell with ziiic sulphate will be at the disposal of our physicians in (tie summer of 1038, when the next epidemic threatens, this question awaits its portentous rtnswcr: Will this truth that guards the lives of monkeys guard tne lives of mankind? AltlST, MOBILIZE FOR QUICK ACTION This limit for truth is going to be a stern and difficult one and Hie co-working of nil the people alone can make it possible. The physicians of the American Academy of Otolaiyngology—tlie cream of the nose and throat specialist;; of America—have volunteered io take the lead in'a giant field trifil of the zinc sulphate preventive next summer. But the truth hunt cannot succeed unless the whole jieople get behind their front line jlghlers of Ihis death. For infantile paralysis epidemic; explode with great rapidity. This makes it necessary that oitr heallhii'en have the means, tlie organization, to throw open clinics fbr mass application of the zinc .••lijpbate preventive instantly (here's evidence of an outbreak. MONEY REQUIRED FOfc COMPENSATION To mobilize this army for the coming: giant human experiment, there must be wherewithal. Wf need physicians to apply (he zinc cblphalc, nurses to assist Ilium In holding the youngsters and keeping records, and nose sp'reialis;s to sec to it that the preventive Is flirely applied to block death's patewny. bill we cannot asl; these sol- Oler:; of health lo serve, unless we pay them decent livings for EO dolrig. They will have to t.ike time off from (heir practices, and this endangers their livelihood. And money will have to be ?.v.itiabte. too, lo pay the experts who will lie iltrricd to analyze th-3 results of Hid gifiiit Hiiliidh fleid test, Tlie licped-for preventive must be tested ilpon many, inaiiy thousands of luuiia'ri beings.

In many another laboratory— thanks (o the money provided in ]j>35 by the people to the President's Infantile Paralysis Research Commission — the keenest virus- -flgt.ters in our country are dredging up other truths about infantile paralysis.
