PAGI BLJTHBV1LLB (ARK.y COURIER WEWI 1 MOWPAT, WOTEMBBR », 1MT Little Likelihood Of Cholera in US N« Epidemic Suck As in Egypt S**n iy HMlttt Official, BT DOBOTIIT WILLIAMS fnm Staff Cwrttponcfent) WASHINGTON, Nov. W. (OP) — «l>* TJ. 8. Public Health Service is •oBfldeot there Is little likelihood ef • eholen outbreak in this country similar to the epidemic In cf HeacTStart . for one thing, the government htt erected too many safeguards and precautions. Dr. Gilbert L. Doonahoo, chief of the Public Health Aerrice's Foreign Quarantine Divl- •ton, »»T» that the last case of cholera la the United States was reported July 10, 1911, when an Italian woman in Boston dfed of the ailment. How she contracted the disease to a country which has been free from cholera for years Is still a mystery. It was believed she may have visited in Italian vessel which had aboard a cholera yictim since there hid been' an epidemic In Italy that Summer. Now the public health service — a* It has for years— examines all tea and air travellers from cholera areas. It also requires all persons to show proof of vaccination against cholera before- leaving the Infected region. The malady attacks the Intestlon- M tract and, like typhoid fever, is contracted through Infected food and water. Piles spread the disease. A precaution, aimed at destroying all possible disease carriers, Is the retired spraying of the Interiors of all airplanes entering the United States with a special mixture el pyrethrurn and DDT. Even If a should get through these barriers, Dunnahoo believes American public health measures would Isolate it quickly. The United States, as are other nations, is lending its help to Egypt In fighting the .present outbreak. X«&rge amounts of vaccine have been flown to Egypt to rid the suffering. Already the disease has claimed thousands of lives. Hobo's Life Not All Loafing Jeff Davis Soys Livestock ST. I/3UIS NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, Nov. 10.

Despite a four- ;tate polite alEirm lor him, he walked through the city of MCIIJ dota, took a bus to New-Mllford, about eight mile's south of Rock- jorri, bought sonic new clothes, and then walked the remainder of the way back here. "It was my kids made me come back,*' he said. "I had to see them. I hod planned to support them after the divorce. I'm still deeply In love with Kit. I'm sorry the shooting took place. 1 had no Intention of shooting. And I didn't really think I Had killed either man." He first went to the home of his wife's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Williams, believing his wife anc children were there. Terror-strick- cns they refused lo let him enter and called police. By the time officers arrived, Marsh was gone. Early yesterday, he went to his parents' home. They called police and Marsh surrendered. His wife and Mrs.' Anderson, who had been placed In 'protective cus- otly, expressed relief'at trie news. Mrs. Mnrsh had sakl she hoped he would kill hlihsclf. Marsh said he "felt much better" following his surrender nnd con- "es.slon. congressional decision ett lonj- range aid. This figure WM broken down as follows—»42,000,000 for Austria, $328,000.000 lor Prance and $227,000,000 for It»ly, This Is slightly smaller-than the t«42,OQO,- 000 previously estimated u needed for emergency »UJ to the ..three countries. " , i 2. First year of Marshall plan- Marshall said he could estimate with reasonable accuracy and assurance the- amount required for the first 15-month, period, April 1, 1948, to June 90, from 1949. Subject to final checks, Marshall's tentative estimate wai "something under $1,500,000,000 for. the last three months' of the fiscal year 1048 and somewhat less than $6 000,000,000" for the fiscal year end- Ing June 30, 1949." This would be a total somewhat under $7,500,000.000 for the Ilrst 15 months of the Marshall plan. 3. The whole Marshall plan- Marshall will not recommend that the Congress appropriate at one time for the full four-year period But on the basis of present Indications he said the estimated cost to our treasury may be "of the order of magnitude of $16,000,000000 to $20,000,000,000.

Davis, who stopped off here on his way to Cincinnati headquarters of the Knights of the Road Fru- lerntty, said his duties as life-time ol the hoboes entailed considerable office work. 'The Grnncl Supreme Knights pay dues nnd the re are 2 ,00 0 of them," he snld. "We havfi 48 laymen representing 'the states, also representatives In all United States possessions. I htive 14 assistant secretaries and It ttoesii't seem enough,' 1 The hobo head, just turned 85, admitted he was paylr 'for train tickets in his travels and not resorting to the time-honored "rid- ng the rods." Claims Travel Record "Its against my better judgement, lowever, to travel Inside trains," :ie said. "In the 53 years I've been sitting the road, I've traveled 2,28fi,000 miles, made six trips aroiuul jhe world and only paid for 00,000 miles of the distance."

"• Grants 'and loans—Marshall did not estimate the possible mathematical division between these two types of aid but Indicated that In the early years at least the overwhelming bulk of the help would be grant* and aids. He proposed grants fo r quickly consumed items such as food, fertilizer and fuel, repair parts for capital equipment and some essential raw materials. loans, he said, should be made only to cover capital equipment and raw materials which will directly produce a means of repayment. He urged encouragement be given to early initiation of private financing and the widest possible use be made of International bank resources. Fiscal reforms—The United States will insist upon commitments by the* European nations pledging themselves to adopt monetary and fiscal reforms; develop production to reach targets set especially to? coal and baslo foods; cooperate in reducing trade barriers.
