Marcelino Costa, New Haven, a 'ormer employe of the Farrel-Birm- ngham Co., Ansonia, was awarded weekly payments of $30 for a period of 520 weeks. The company was also ordered to reimburse .he state of Connecticut for sanl- torium services given the man for nearly five years. Treatment payments total $7,976.04.. The finding also orders the company to re- mburse the employe with the sum of $133.86 he paid at the Sheltdn Sanitorium where he was admitted five days after leaving his work with the firm July 25. 1944. addition the firm was ordered continue to furnish treatment to Costa. First Case The case is the first of its type to be decided under Connecticut law. Commissioner Krasow ruled that although the affliction suffered by he employe is not curable, treatments were prolonging his life and herefore the expense came under :he act. The company contended the treatments merely rendered comfort and were not a cure. The commissioner stated, "in the present state of medical science there is no cure for silicosis. The only treatment is supervised bed rest, diet and exercise. With supervised bed rest, diet and exercise, the life span of a person suffering from silicosis or ailicotuberculosls may be prolonged. The claimant has survived because of the treatment received at 'Laurel Heights sanitorium under competent professional supervision." It was pointed out in the finding that the man worked at the foundry for more than 11 years as a chipper, exposed '.o silica dust in a highly concentrated form.

The corps has already decided that coft of a dam in Thomaston would be justified In view of flood damage which the river might cause.
