The REMODELING OF COURTHOUSE TO BE CONSIDERED Supervisors Announce Plans for Rebuilding Old Structure. Vf. D. Gibson, chairman of the Cerro Gordo county board of super- isors, Saturday announced that the ioard had decided definitely to rtace the matter of voting* bonds or the remodeling of the courthouse before the voters on June 16, making- use of the special election ailed for consideration of the state oad bond issue. The courthouse bond issue will be or a total of $115,000, the amount estimated for a complete renovation if the building and for the contraction of an addition, 25 by 58 eet on the north side. This addition viJl contain two large vaults In the jasement, two on the main floor and additional court facilities on the second floor. The proposed changes will jreatly add to .the vault space, en-' arge the office of the treasurer and jrovide for additional offices in the jasement and larger quarters for district court sessions on the second loor. The structure will be made [reproof and structurally safe thruout. Plans for the remodeling jrogram have been drawn by Ben lenry, local architect. Voting on the question of remodeling- the building this year is made possible by .the fact that a bill per- nitting counties to issue bonds for :he purpose of remodeling court- louse buildings was passed by the state assembly this year. The supervisors had contemplated submitting the matter last year, but postponed it when it was learned that under ;he existing laws there was no authority for this type of project. The need of providing a safe place for the records of the county, is the chief motive for the proposition, it was stated. benefit by co-opera- 1 "Above all a good roof. Roof cstl- toiates furnished.

E. Jakin, health director. However the disease is becoming ore of a problem than typhoid ever, Dr. Dakin said and added hat California law requires all cows o be tested for tha disease. "The prevalence in Iowa of undulant fever is of especial interest o the stockraiser," says the Iowa tate Department of Health. "This ; true not only from an economic standpoint but also because of the otential hazard to himself and his 'amily. Prolonged intensive study and investigation conducted in the United States and in Europe indicate that undulant fever of man )ears a close relationship to Bang's disease or contagious abortion of domestic animals, partlculary cattle and hogs. "The goat appears to be a natural reservoir of the organisms which cause undulant fever in man. This animal h arbors the" organism and gives it off in the milk, without manifesting any symptoms herself. The relative scarcity of goats in Iowa practically eliminates this species from the problem of the control of undulant fever In this state. But the presence of cattle and hogs which are infected In such largo numbers with the organism of contagious abortion constitutes a hazard to humans which must be considered. "Since 1026, several hundred cases o{ undulant fever have been reported in the United States. In Iowa in 1928, 172 cases and 12 deaths and in 1930, 145 cases and i deaths were reported. These\figures gave case fatality rates of 7 and 2.7 respectively while the case fa- tality rates for scarlet fever for the same years were 1.1 and 2.1. "The disease may- be transmitted to humans thru raw milk or by contact, especially with cows or hogs at the time ,of abortion. Veterinarians and stoclfmen should observe extra precautions when attending abort- Ing cows or hogs. Avoid all exposure, If there are abrasions of the skin of hands or arms. There is evidence that the organism can penetrate the unbroken skin. "Rubber gloves, and the immediate use of proper disinfectants after handling is earnestly recommended. Most cases of undulant fever in Iowa are caused by the porcine (hog) type of the abortion bacillus. The infection can be transmitted from hogs to cattle and from cattle to hogs. Adequate pasteurization of milk and sterilization of milk utensils will safeguard the consumer against infection thru milk. Where pasteurization Is not feasible. the use of tested cows only to supply milk is recommended, or if this is not possible, the milk should be boiled." Another sign that the depression is passing is that the bread lines are breaking up and reforming at the public golf links. -- Judge. , 0. K.
