THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNOM. [LLfNQI^I THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1952 T. B. SANATORIUM HERE COMPLETES FIRST YEAR First State-Owned Tuberculosis Hospital Cares for 215 Patients in Rendering Valuable Service. Treatment 1 Also Provided for 186 Out-Patients. The story of the first year of service of the Mt. Vernon State Tuberculosis Sanatorium is told in a' recent issue of the "Illinois Health Messenger," publication of the state department of public heialth. The item is as follows: ."The first State-owned Tuberculosis Sanatorium in Illinois has now been in operation for more than a year. Dedicated on May 13, 1951. the 100-bed institution at Mt. Vernon has been a new venture for our State government. That it has already rendered a valuable service to the residents of Illinois is shown clearly in a statement from Dr. Isadore Zapolsky, former Medical Director and Superintendent. "''During the period ended June 30, 1952, a total of 215 tuberculosis patients received hospitaliza- tibn in the new Sanatorium. Admitting the first group of patients 0% June 11, 1951, the Sanatorium has been operating at approximately full capacity since February of this year, and now has a waiting list of men. Although the rnajority of the patients are from southern Illinois counties, several have been admitted from other areas of the State. Vj'ln addition to the 215 patients hospitalized, the Sanatorium has provided care and treatment for 186 out-patients. v'The need for early case-finding in tuberculosis is emphasized by tKe fact that out of the 215 patients admitted to the Sanatorium during the year, 165, or about 75 per cent, were already in the far- advanced stage of the disease. Qply 22, or about 10 per cent of the patients admitted were in the ,minimal stage, when tuberculosis is" most readily overcome. ''Significant also in Dr. Zapol- sicy's statement is the classification of patients on discharge. Of lis patients leaving the institution during the year. 39 were classified as "arrested," 5 were "inactive," 10 were "improved," and 39 were "unimproved." A total of 10 patients died during the year 60 Per Cent Leave „"The fact that about 50 per cent of, those leaving the Sanatorium did so against medical advice indicates the need for greater educational efforts in order that patients may be adequately prepared for entrance to the Sanatorium. "In addition to medical and .stirgical treatment of patients, the Sanatorium has provided occupational therapy and rehabilitation services. ."The Mt. Vrenon State Tuberculosis Sanatorium is the culmination of persistent efforts of public health workers and interested citizens in Illinois for more than half a century. In 1901 an unsuccessful attempt was made to obtain an appropriation from the General Assembly for the construction of a State tuberculosis hospital. It was not until 1947, however, that laws were enacted and funds appropriated that made p >ssible the new institution. , "The second State Tuberculosis Sanatorium, which is now under construction in Chicago, will have a capacity of 500 beds. It is scheduled for opening some time next year." PictKre Book On Stevenson's Life Is Issued By Associated Press WASHINGTON — Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson's life stor.v was depicted today in a 20-page, full- color picture booklet. Tlie Democratic National Committee announced that several million copies were being distributed through state Democratic organizations. The booklet's color pictures trace back to Stevenson's great grandfather, Jesse W. Fell, "who brought about the famous Lincoln- Douglas debates"; his grandfather, Adlai E. Stevenson, President Grover Cleveland's vice president, and his father, Lewis Green Stevenson, Illinois secretary of state in 1914. The pictures take Stevenson quickly through grade school, Princeton, Harvard and Northwestern University. The booklet deals mostly with his service as governor of Illinois, his World War II jobs and his role in the formation of the United Nations.

He wise-cracked himself out of his job, so it will be interesting to see if Stevenson can wise-crack hiniself into _one.

GIVEN GOP COMMITTEE OK, 107-0 (Continued trotn P«»e One) — • • ^ BONDS OF FREEDOIVI — Pfc. Willard Webb, of Kansas City. Kans., in the uniform of a Continental soldier, shows a replica of a bond of the first series ever issued by the United States. It was authorized 176 years ago today, on October 3, 1776, to help finance the American Revolution. In modern battle dress, Pfc. Theodore R. Jenkins, of New York City, displays a replica of current U. S. Defense Bond which millions of Americans buy regularly for their own and their country's security. Both soldiers are Korean veterans, now stationed at First Army Headquarters, Governors Island, N. Y. TWIN GUARDS No fewer than 24 colleges were interested in Stan, left, and Stew Klipper, identical twin guards of West New York. N.J. They seemed set for Princeton, but landed at Dartmouth. (NEA) said the members' comment was "overwhelmingly enthusiastic" in favor of Nixon. "Their telegrams reflected a conviction that Richard M. Nixon not only deserves the support of everv American but is worthy of the 'highest public trust," Summerfield said, adding: "America has taken Dick Ni.xon to its heart." Ni.xon had offered to withdraw if the committee found him politically wanting. "And now L give you Dick Nixon," Eisenhower intoned and the youthful California senator strode "to the lectern amid shouts of "we want Dick." Nixon Speaks Nison told of his flight east, of a stop at Denver and of his arrival at Wheeling. "As we went through all these places and saw the faces of the American people and heard them say to Pat my wife and me 'Keep it up, keep fighting, we believe in you,' it made us realize that all you have to do is to tell the people the truth and hot hide anything from them," he said. NiAon had rec9unted, in his TV- radio broadcast and in a supplemental statement, what he said was a summary of his financial dealings since he was elected to the senate. He said not one penny went for his personal gain. The senator said he was impressed by the "magnificent" way in which Eisenhower had reacted to the charges against Ni.xon. Nixon said Eisenhower could have blurted at the outset that the charges against his running mate were just a "smear" to'which he was not going to listen. Eisenhower did say earlier in the dav, at Point Pleasant, W. Va. that Nixon had been subjected to an "attempted smear." Nixon added that Eisenhower didn't employ the "smear" reply at once "because there has been too much of that in the present administration." "There is too much of this business of cover up, too much of this business of clamming up whenever any charges are made against those in high places," Nixon declared. Cites "Happy Contrast" The senator said Eisenhower's attitude was "in happy contrast with what we have had in the past seven years with the man who is in the White House." He said that instead of declaring at once that he didn't believe the charges, Eisenhower had told him, in effect: "Dick, take your case to the American people, bring out all the facts, tell the Set Hearing on Suit to Acquire Land NearMt.V. I\!o(ions in a suit of the state of Illinois to actiuire land southeast of Mt. Vernon to be used in the widening of U. S. Highway 460 are sclicdulcd for heating November 7. Judge B. W.

Accident Victim Still Critical Mrs. Virginia Curtis, 26, of RED 1. Asliiey, remained in critical condition at Good Samaritan Hospital today from injuries suffered in an automobile accident near Ashley Sunday morning. Hospital attendants said, however, that she is slightly improved. Her husband, Charles, 26, and her brother. John Riddle, 24, were also injured in the accident. Mr. Curtis was able to be released from the hospital but Mr. Riddle remains as a patient. His condition was described as good today. TRUIVIAN FOR PUBLICITY ON OFFICIALS' INCOME (Continued from Page One) criticism of his witticism on the stump. Ho volunteered the com- n^.cnt that the Republicans have been poking fun at the Democratic candidate because he likes to put his audiences into good humor. In that coimectior. he said he wanted to call attention to n cjuo- tation from Matthew, Chapter 6. which he said reads: "Be not. as the hypocrites, sad of countenance." No ConutKMit on Joke When the Nixon fund question was raised, reportei-s jokingly inquired whether Truman would care to contribute to it. He said he had no comment. The President was asked at one point whether ho thought the public was entitled to the names of those who contributed to the Stevenson fund in Illinois. No comment, he said. He was asked if he would make public the nanies if he haci received such a fund. He still had no comment. Ho did reply in the negative when asked whether he ever had a I'und equal to either the Nixon or Stevenson funds. Truman would not comment on what he was told was a difference in interpretation by Eisenhower and Senator Robert Tatt, Ohio Republican, of the Taft-Hartley Act. He would say only that he was glad to hear of their difference. Won 't Predict Outcome The conference ended when a i-eporter asked the Piesidenf how the election would come out in November. He replied only he was not a pollster or a prophet. Big Beautiful truth and then we will make the decision as to what should be done." "Folks, if he will do that with me, just think what he is going to do when he becomes president." .\ixon said. "It is going to be the cleanest, most honest government .America has ever had."
