Wood. manager of the Hartford Regional QWce of the Veterans Administration, not to send in another, even though the first application may have been incomplete.

In cases where essential information is not available, or the form otherwise is not acceptable, the individuals concerned will be notified by the VA and- requested to submit a new application. Uore than seven million applications were received in Washington in the first week after the forms became available on Aug. 28, and they were still rolling in at the rate of a million a. day.

Report Diphtheria Outbreak This Year In Bridgeport An outbreak of diphtheria in Bridgeport this year %vas reported by Mila E. Rindge, M. D., Epidemiologist, state department of health, in the October Health Bulletin released today. Dr. Rindge pointed out that the disease is entirely preventable through immunization, yet unfortunate incidents such as this outbreak which caused the deaths of three children still occur. She said that parents must see that their children are effectively protected nt all times from this disease. Constant vigilance on the part of physicians is also necessary. Forty-four cases of diphtheria were reported from Bridgeport in the first five months of the year. The epidemic started near one of the housing projects, and most of the cases occurred in the project and in neighboring areas. Before the peak was reached, however. cases were being reported from nearby towns and cities. Twenty- seven of the cases were male, 17 were female. The average age of those attacked was nine years. None of the children who died had ever been immunized. Of * the 41 other cases, 32 had never been immunized, 7 had been immunized in infancy but . had never received booster doses of the immunizing agent, and two were said to have been immunized in 1948, but were never Schick tested.

Wood Urges Veterans To Make 3-Point NSLI Checks Of ten Veterans holding National Service Life Insurance are advised by Harry T. Wood, manager of the Hartford Regional Office of the Veterans Administration, to give their policies periodic three-point checks to make sure that the insur- a n c e protection meets current needs. "The first point to check, 1 ' said Manager Wood, "is the amount of insurance .carried. A veteran may decide that the full $10,000 allowed by law is more than he'needs at present, but on the other hand, if his protection is less than that and he can afford to carry the full amount, he might do well to increase his protection. His own individual circumstances determine his needs. "Point No. 2 to check is the type of insurance carried. Besides term policies, National Service Life Insurance offers six permanent plans, and the veteran may choose any one or combination of them to suit his own needs. The third point to check concerns the veteran's beneficiary—who will receive the proceeds of the policy, and in what manner. The veteran should remember that he can change his beneficiary arrangements at any time. "Also, he should remember that whenever he desires information concerning hie insurance, he may obtain it at any VA office. Two Compensation Claims Approved Roger Brennan, 15 Wolf aven-je. Beacon Falls, was awarded payments of $32 for two wc-eks from the State of Connecticut, Park and Forest department, according to a stipulation approved yester- terday by Workmen'iS Compensation Commissioner Harry Krasow.
