WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1954 BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Dr. Salk, Creator Of Polio Vaccine, Sees Long-Term Immunity ROME (AP) — Dr. Jonas E. Salk, whose polio vaccine is undergoing one of medical history's most closely watched tests, ^ reported today that man eventually may gain long' term immunity against polio from as little as two injections. The young bacteriologist from from the University of Pittsburgh submitted his eagerly awaited report to physicians and scientists of 49 nations, gathered in Rome for the International Poliomyelitis Congress. Salk developed the vaccine which has been given to 25,000 children in the United States in a massive trial supported by the National Foundation for Infantile Paraly- effectiveness will not be sis. Its known definitely until next March, when the field test Results are evaluated and announced by Dr. Thomas Francis Jr. of the' University of Michigan, Salk's former congress. But Salk reported there already is evidence that the vaccine generates antibodies — virus-fighting particles — in the blood streams of vaccinated, persons. He said they are equal to antibodies found in the blood of persons who have recovered from the disease. "The indications are that such can be accomplished with as few as two injections," he reported, "provided the potency of the vaccine and the interval between shots are both adequate." It is still not certain how long the effect of the vaccine will last, Salk said, adding: "That there is still much to be learned is clear indeed. Nevertheless, it does appear that by suitable manipulation of the dose of vaccine and of the intervals between inoculations, it should be possible with relatively few injections properly spaced to provide long-term immunity." Salk said he and his associates now are trying to find out what is the shortest effective time between inoculations. "In man," he said, "it is clear that the interval is longer than five weeks." Coffee, Cocktails, Cigarettes Said Cause of Ulcer Increase CHICAGO L?)—A surgeon blamed cigarettes, cocktails and the "coffee break" today for an increase in the ulcer rate among women. Dr. Leo J. Starry, professor of surgery at the University of Oklahoma Medical School, said the incidence of the serious, bleeding- type ulcer has increased among both men and women in the last 10 years, but at a faster clip for women. One of every four ulcer sufferers today is a woman. The ratio formerly was one in five. Dr. Starry said the coffee break now is standard practice in many offices and ments. industrial establish- Battle Flares In 5. Carolina Senate Race COLUMBIA, S.C. Iff) — Former Gov. J. Strom Thurmond's write- in entry into the TJ.S. Senate race in South Carolina- today fanned a factional fight among state Democrats. Thurmond speariicaced the Dix- iecrat split in the Democratic party when he ran for president on the States Rights ticket in 1948. He will oppose State Sen. Edgar A. Brown, who helped keep the state in the party fold in 1952. Thurmond supported Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952. Brown was named by the State Executive Committee to run for the seat vacant since the death of Sen. Burnet R. Maybank last Wednesday. Maybank had been re- nominated in the June Democratic primary. There is no Republican candidate. In traditionally Democratic South Carolina nomination spells election, but when the state committee named Brown as the candidate, claiming that time did not permit a primary, opposition arose. After Brown was announced as the parly candidate, Gov. James F. Byrnes, who supported President Eisenhower in 1952, appointed Charles E. Daniel, a construction firm president, to the unexpired term which ends Jan. 2. It was Daniel's debut in politics. There was no comment from Byrnes or Brown on Thurmond's announcement. Thurmond, governor from 194751, was defeated for the Senate by Sen. Olin D. Johnston in 1950. South Carolina election laws require that ballots have write-in space. Brown, considered strong in state politics, is national Democratic committeeman. He believes this has resulted in a higher rate of coffee and cigarette consumption among women workers. Cocktail parties, he said, could help account for an increase in the ulcer rate of both sexes. In a speech and interview at the annual congress of the United States and Canadian sections of the International College of Surgeons, he said cigarettes, coffee and alcohol stimulate the secretion of ulcer-producing acids. The cigarette and coffee taken together during a short coffee break is especially hazardous for some people, he added, because no food is taken to act as a buffer for the acids. His study was based on 37 cases of bleeding ulcers, 27 per cent of whom were women.

Georgians VoteToday In Primary ATLANTA L-P) — Georgians nominated a governor, a U.S. senator and 10 representatives in today's Democratic primary. The ballot included a king-size list of nine candidates for the governorship. Numerous other state and local posts also were at stake. Nomination in a Democratic primary virtually assures election in Georgia. Nine candidates seeking to succeed Gov. Herman Talmadge, who by law cannot succeed himself, have indulged in one of the wildest and hottest campaigns in decades. Much of their oratory dealt with the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision against segregation in public schools. The major candidates promised to maintain separate public schools for white and Negro children. The race for governor developed no national issues. One candidate outlasted the others in campaign stamina. State Rep. Charles Gowen of Brunswick carried his bid for the governor's :hair right up to poll time. He scneduiea a bO-minute radio pro- ram for the Wednesday morning breakfast hour. The other eight candidates had brought their wordy campaigns to a close either Monday or last night. Besides Gowen, the candidates for governor are Edmond Bariield, Atlanta; Ben Garland, Jackson; Lt. Gov. Marvin Griffin; House Speaker Fred Hand; Agriculture ommissioner Tom Neeson, Atlanta; Brs. Grace Thomas Decatur; and former Gov M. E. Thompson. Barfield, Neeson and Mrs. Thomas conducted only modest campaigns. Sen. Richard B. Russell is unopposed for re-nomination. Seven congressmen have no opposition. They are Paul Brown, E. L. Forrester, Phil M. Landrum, Henderson Laham, J. L. Pilcher, Prince H. Preston and Carl Vinson. James C. Davis has one opponent, two candidates oppose Don Wheeler and three seek the office of the last, A. Sidney Camp.
