The SEQUEL TO DECEMBER CASE Dayton State Employe Contracts Tuberculosis By J AVNE ELLISON Dally News Staff Writer A Dayton State hospital employe has contracted tuberculosis. The employe worked in a ward where an elderly woman patient was discovered to have active tuberculosis last winter. The patient was transferred to a TB hospital in Springfield in November. The DSH employe was released last Friday from a community hospital, where she had been in isolation. .She had chest X-rays at DSH in July during the TB survey of all patients and employes. A second-X-ray was ordered. . IN THE SAME WARD, about IS per cent of the elderly women patients had positive tuberculin skin tests after the 77-year-old patient was removed from the ward. Drug therapy was begun in the ward as a precautionary measure in January. Discovery of the active TB case was reported in December. Representatives of the Ohio Department of Mental Hygiene and Correction made survey of DSH's TB control program and included the following observations in their report : That patients with positive skin tests and negative chest X rays were not receiving the preventive drugs as required by the state. That patients, newly admitted to DSH, were not being skin tested as part of routine physical examination.

When the elderly woman pa-' i e n l was transferred to Springfield, it was learned from Springview hospital sources that she has been a DSH patient since 1916. Her TB history dated to the 1940s.

The disclosure coincided with a report that Soviet leaders handpicked 150 members .of a new Czechoslovak Communist party central committee they want to run the country. RELIABLE party sources said the membership of the new central committee, ruling body of tha party for both Czechs and Slovaks, was worked out during the four-day meeting between the Kremlin leaders and the Czechoslovaks while Warsaw pact forces maintained military control of Czechoslovakia, It means there are three Czechoslovak central committees in existence, the sources said, including the original committee at the time of the Soviet-led occupation Aug. 20 and a committee elected during the 14th Communist party congress held in secret on Aug. 22. Czech government and party leaders have been meeting sinct Wednesday in an attempt to determine which is the nation's legal body, the sources said. Bilak's removal came amid a continuing tacit truce between occupying Soviet troops and sullen Czechs. Work stoppages continued to keep the economy in semi-paralysis. THE RADIO said the Slovak tot Its mthmv mm a w raft mi,'' - h ' t ' -" t lit' ii i -'- 'It's this way. Your Pontiac dealers are in the middle of their Great Wide-Track Drive. They're out to move all their 1968 stock. And things are getting hotter by the minute. So they're trading high. Making deals that There was no indication how the Kreni' lin w ould react Party Congress irt Bratislava replaced Bilak with Deputy Premier Gustav Husak, con- sidered loyal o Czechoslovak Communist-party First Secretary Alexander Dubcek. The fall of Bilak reflected continued Czechoslocak defiance of Moscow's terms for eventually ending the Soviet bloc occupation of this countryterms that even Dubcek has urged his countrymen to . accept. There was no immediate indication how the Kremlin would react to Bilak's fall from power , in the regional party. ACCORDING TO official radio broadcasts, Husak himself had tried to defend Bilak against charges ht cooperated with the Soviets in their Aug. 20-21 invasion of Czechoslovakia to stem the tide of liberal reform here. The broadcast quoted Husak as telling the congress in now, THE GREAT WIDE-TRACK DRIVE GETS HOTTER! 'f TJ 1 J J Vasil Blink Bratislava that Bilak "had not been in any way responsible for the entry of Warsaw treaty troops and their being invited to Czechoslovakia." Moreover, Husak reportedly advised the Slovak Communist party to disregard the national party congress that met secretly lust week to vote bitter opposition to the Soviet occupation. Husak's advice reflected t h e Dubcek-govern-ment line that Czechoslovaks should make the best of a bad situation. WITHDRAWAL Of Soviet troops will require "several months and stages," Czech Presidint Ludwig Svoboda reportedly tojd his cabinet Wednesday. And even after the main forces are removed, at least two Soviet divisions would remain stationed on the West German border, according to this report of the Svoboda interpretation. According to informants at It catch the 8 MWRf the same cabinet session, Col. Gen. Martin Jzur, tha defense minister, ' estimated tha total number of foreign troops in Czechoslovakia at 650,000, a figurt vastly higher than the earlier calculations by Western observers. Despite restrictions Imposed, Svoboda ' reportedly boasted last week'a Moscow agreement was a "moral" victory. HK ARfil LD that it saved the regime headed by himself, Dubcek and Premier Oldrich Cernik which Czechs look on as their "democracy-within-communism" revolution. Aged former general Svoboda also told the ministers he had refused on the first day after, the invasion to head up a puppet regime sought by the Soviets. In Moscow, the Soviet press today told the Russians that some Czechoslovaks have been "deluded" into thinking that Soviet occupation forces re not their friends. THE COMMUNIST PARTY newspaper Pravda blamed "counterrevolutionaries" for any Czech protests and stated that the sooner they are rrushed the better. But Pravda sketched a bogus picture of contentment in the occupied country, describing "crowds of cheerful people" and a non-existent pattern of normalcy. In Washington, President Johnson's hope for a "farewell" meeting with Soviet Premier Alexsei N. Kosygin seems to be fading fast. High administration sources said that some cultural exchange projects now pending with the Soviet Union will probably be cancelled by the United States as a gesture of displeasure over the military , occupation of Czechoslovakia. tt competition short.
