III. — Oup of the brighter spots in the Illinois polio pictiu'c was described today where they attended the national Dental meeting. Mr. and Mrs. John Shcphard of Bluford, Mrs. Mag Cross and Rena Scrivner spent Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Gearing. Martin Hampton visited relatives in East St. Louis over the weekend. Mrs. Dale Esmon and son of VVaukegan, 111., are visiting Mr. and Mrs. James Esmon, by a Slate health official. B B Richardson, deputy state health director, said that as far as he knows "nobody who needed it has Uu-kcd medical or hospital carp." "ThtMO may have been complaints here and ther—but nothing serious." he added. Mi-anuhile. the number of polio cases reiKirted to the Health Department rose Tuesday to 2,090. This is ju.'st short of the 2,133 re- corciod b\ Sept. 16 in the epidemic year of 1949. More than two thiixis of those stricken 1.355—have been down- staie residents. In Chicago, 735 cases ha \o occurred. Ric 'luu -dson said the current^polio season has witnessed nothing like "the mess three years ago" when fcv^ hospitals would accept polio patients and the state had to organize ha .stily an emergency clinic at Contralia, then an epidemic area. Tiicre \\ere serious shortages of polio medical and nursing personnel The improvement, he said, has resulted from organizing community facilities and local resources, extensive health education and the work of a State Polio Planning Committee set up two years ago. The committee was composed of medical men, nurses, polio specialists, educators, state health officials, hospital administrators and civic leaders. Now, nearly 150 hospitals will perform services of one type or another ranging from receipt of suspected polio patients for diagnosis to handling rehabilitation cases, a specialty requiring elaborate equipment and considerable time. Twenty-four do rehabilitation work. The hospitals which merely allow diagnosis screen out suspected polio, removing this load from treatment centers heavily burdened when polio is at its height. Richardson said in an interview that the Health Department kept no record in 1949 on the number of hospitals taking polio patients but recalled that it was a fraction of the present figure. Many hospitals formerly refused admittance for fear of "cross-infection"—that is, spread of polio to other patients, he said. This attitude had diminished with growth of evidence that such risk is small, he added. FUNNY BUSINESS By Hcrshberqi "We're expecting bill collectors this afternoon!"
