OCTOBKR 4, 19S6 BLTTHErTLLH (ARK.)' COURIER PAGE THKE1 Brain Wave Study Offers Clue to Mental Disease By FRANK CAREY AI 1 Science Reporter CHICAGO (AP) — A possible clue to the cause of some types of epilepsy, cerebral palsy, spastic paralysis and feeblemindedness was reported today by a team of University of Illinois researchers. Dr. Frederic A. Gibbs and two colleiigues said new findings with a "brnin wave" machine suggest the possibility that certain neurological disorders of unknown roay be late results of common virus infections of childhood, such as measles, mumps and whooping cough. They reported to the 24th annual meeting ot' the American Academy of Pediatrics. The new studies "re-emphasize the need for finding" improved preventive measures for common viral infections of childhood." Dr. Gibbs told a reporter, adding- Some Advances M:ule "Some important advances already have been made. And recent advances in the prevention of polio justify hope that prevention in the whole field of viral diseases will eventually be greatly improved." The researchers said they had found evidence that encepbulitis, or brain infection, commonly occurs in "supposedly uncomplicated cases" of measles and other prevalent virus infections of childhood. The evidence showed up. they aaid. in "brain wave machine" studies of 700 children at Chicago's Municipal Contagious Disease Hospital. They said that "fortunately" the number of cases in which the brain infection persists is small. But they added that in such per-; sistent cases, convulsive seizures and neurological defects may show; up several years or more after the child has recovered from his measles or other childhood virus disease. In their report—made at a scientific exhibit at the academy meeting—the researchers said: "By studying: different types of I'irus infection and working with the youngest age groups it may be possible to pin the blame for some t3T3es of epilepsy, cerebral palsy, spastic paralysis and feeblemindedness on virus infections occurring in childhood." They said the "brain wave" machine offers a valuable aid to DOING THEIR GOOD DEED—Food, clothing and bedding for Hood victims are gathered by these two Boy Scouts in New York City. Their troop joined in widespread relief efforts to aid the homeless and dispossessed in the northeastern United States. Reporter Is Jailed Briefly On Contempt of Court Charge SANTA ROSA. Calif.

Attorneys for two apple-processing plan is which seek an injunction against the AFL Teamsters Union were quizzing Howard on the stand about statements he had attributed to a union agent in his newspaper accounts of the team sters strike in the Sebastopol apple growing area. One attorney, Nathan R. Berke, sought Howard's sworn testimony that teamster organizer Peter An drade had advised a union to observe officially a temporary .straining order granted by the Superior Court earlier in the dispute, but then had added: "As individual American citizens anyone lias the right to refuse to handle hot apples and we're telling this to all union members in the West." Howard claimed the right to refuse to answer, under a 20-year-oIc California law which protects a newspaper reporter from being held in contempt for refusing to disclose sources of information procured for publication and published in a newspaper.
