THE REGISTER-NE>A^ — MT. VERNON, riLINOFS THURSDAY. AUGUST U, 1952 Wonder Drug On Market But Warning Given By AiKoelat*!) Prest WASHINGTON — The wonder drug Chloromycetin remains on the markets but with clear warnings attached to its use by physicians. Under the government ruling announced Wednesday, every package of it must henceforth carry an explicit caution to doctors against indiscriminate use or for minor infections — and a warning of'possible hazards under certain cdnditions. The Food and Drug Administration FDA had been faced with deciding about future use of the drug as a result of serious blood disorders, some of them fatal recently noted among people treated with the medicine. There was even talk of a possible ban on the drug which, since 1949, has been used in more than eight million cases. It has been credited with saving thousands of lives from serious infections such as" typhoid fever. Rocky Mountain spotted fever, undulant fever, epidemic typhus, "scrub" typhus, certain pneumonias and urinary tract infections. It is medicine's only known cure for typhoid. The FDA announced its decision to permit the drug to remain on the market. It can be obtained only on a doctor's prescription. BELGIUM CUTS DOWN ON DRAFT By Astooated Press WASHINGTON.—Belgium's decision to cut down its military conscription period created new troubles for Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway's European army. The Brussels government decided yesterday to knock three month off the 24-month service period for conscripts. It had failed the previous day to get neighboring countries to agree on a common two-year training program. Belgium is the only member of the European Defense Community with a two-year service period. Norway required 12 months, The Netherlands and France 18 months and Italy 15 months. Great Brit- aii), which is not an EDC member has two years' service. •The most important effect of the Brussels action is apt to be psychological. If this movement spreads or the Communists succeed in capitalizing on it. the European buildup could be drastibally affected.

But a new doctrine is abroad in the land—a doctrine of changT! Tor trie sake ot change. *:* * It is like buying a surprise package at a novelty store. Maybe the cigar they are offering us is a gQpd ope, or maybe it will explode in-your face." '•At one point, the governor compared former President Herbert Hbover with Vice President Barkis and gave their national convention speeches as an example of tlie difference between Republican and dmocrat: ^"His (Hoover's) SDeech was deeply melancholy in tone. This would probably be his, last Republican convention, he kept saying —Sa note of pessimism which we all-sincerely hope will turn out to be; wholly unjustified. He described', the state of the nation in cqyally funeral language. The whole effect was one of black, unrelieved gloom." • 'Then he said of Barkley: "In marked contrast to this venerable and melancholy figure of 77 at the Republican convention was the stripling of 74 who stole the show at the Democratic convention * * * where the Republican despaired of the republic, the Democrat exulted in:7 the prospects of democracy, speaking about the exciting y^ars ahead.

Election of Stevenson, the Democratic nominee, would mean "unfaltering continuation of the best tradition and ideals of the new deal and the fair deal." the CIO executive board declared in a resolution. The endorsement had been expected. The 46 - man executive board called the Democratic party platform on which Stevenson is running "the most liberal, forward- looking and realistic ever adopted by any political party." The 500-word resolution failed to mention Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower by name but said "no candidate, however respected and however well intentioned, could wrest power from the entrenched old guard who still control the Republican party, who dictate its policies in the halls of Congress and who write its reactionary platforms." President Phil Murray of the CIO told newsmen that so far as he knew, the CIO has recei\'ed no bid for conferences or advice from Eisenhower.
