E (AKK.J CUUK1KK Fly-ConfrolWorfc Brings Warning U.S. H M lth S«rvict Citet Ovcr-tmphotif In Anti-Polio Fight Michael Weds Anne A71AHTA, Oa.< June 1«. fup>— Th» U. g. Public Health service wutionsd yesterday against over- etnphaiU on fly-co»(rol during emergency phases of infantile paralysis epidemic*. There simply Is not definite proof that such measures are effective in slopping the crippling disease, department spokesmen said. "A lot of Information has gone out implying thai. Insect control, particularly fly, will prevent polio " said. Dr. R A. Vonderlelir. chief medlcul officer of the Conimiiul- mblt Disease Center. "The Health Service thinks it only fair to state that there Is no fair evidence to completely support that claim at present. On the oilier Hand, there is no evidence to completely Ilirow out the claim." Vonderlelir .said the Heallli Service has been engaged iu insect control experiments in Bdinliurg, Tex., and will publish the re.suli.5 In about a year, after laboratory work i s completed. Tin powerful insecticide DDT is mainly used In the control experiment.*. Observations already obtained, Vonderlelir said, lead'the Health j Service to the "tentative conelu- l B oi"b»n-Pnrinu. "will have little or no effect on the transmission of polio." A recent bulletin from thc Health Service said: "Tlie service does not discourage fly control, rather It encourages inch activity when done on a rational niitl continuing basis. The spectacular work by airplane and ground machines as has been carried on during emergencies,' however, gives an imjustifiert feeling of security and diverts attention from other possible sources of polio spread," Kln K of Konmanlu. imd his brld,-.
