WAUKON, IOWA End your heating worries forever "Worry Free" Heating Plan Every infant should be protected against whooping cough. This disease begins simply as a little cough and runny nose, but it's deadly, especially among children under two years old. If your child has not been immunized against whoopirig cough, see that he's protected immediately, advises the Iowa State Department of Health. The disease is highly contagious during the week or ten days of coughing before the "whoop" becomes noticeable. All too frequently unprotected playmates catch the infection before a sick child is separated from them. During the third and fourth weeks of the disease, .massive amounts of mucus are discharged from the patient's throat and bronchial passages. As the mucus accumulates, the patient coughs violently to clear his air ways. The coughs may come so close together that the patiem can't inhale for several moments. When he does draw a breath, he is likely to suck in air with the high-pitched "whoop" that gives the disease its name. Some of the side effects of whooping cough can be as serious as the disease itself. Each whooping cough patient must be watched to see that he doesn't choke on the mucus. Another danger is that the violent coughing may cause brain damage or hearing loss. Your physician can prescribe treatment to lessen the dangers. I But protection from the disease is better than treatment. Immunization is easy, safe and effective An immunization program for your child should begin before he's two months old. By following the recommended schedule of shots and booster shots, he will be protected against whooping cough and other dangerous communicable diseases. See your physician for this import ant protection. INJURED Dick Hogan of Marengo severed a tendon in his right arm recently when he ran it through a window pane in a door at the school.
