PHYSIOTHERAPY Chief treatment in the crippling disease is physiotherapy and the society employs physiotherapists who travel in mobile units to serve those unable to so to the various centres. In Calgary last year, 1,600 patients received treatment. "It is most important that patients should receive early treatment as in tour out of five cases, early diagnosis sometimes means there is no disablement. Treatment in our clinics must be prescribed by a family doctor," Mr. Dunlop stressed. In Calgary, he said, the society is financed by the Community Chest. People are asked to pay if it is at all possible, but a large percentage receive free treatment. 'The Calgary branch has a great deal of which it can be proud," he said.

Police said they wanted information about 300 vials of polio vaccine purchased by the druggist from an unknown sales man. Police said the druggist purchased 100 vials of vaccine from a salesman who appeared to have authentic credentials but was unknown to the druggist. Later in the day, a second purchase brought the total to over 300 vials. Leopold Trotrier, deputy director of the Quebec Provincial Police, said it is possible the vaccine entered the trade legally even though the serial numbers on the vials were similar to those stolen from the university. Civic and provincial health officials say the puzzling theft of $30,000 worth of emergency Salk polio vaccine is a severe blow to the campaign against Quebec's polio epidemic. "Children will be the victims." said Dr. Adelard Groulx, head of Montreal's health department. The vaccine, enough for 75,000 inoculations, was earmarked for 59 municipal clinics planning to give second shots to children and teen-agers. "The theft is quite a blow" to the program, said Dr. Lionel Forte, assistant director of the institute of biology and hygiene in suburban Laval des Rapides, where four masked gunmen made off with 10,000 vials of vaccine in a pre-dawn raid. The means by which the thieves hoped to profit from the well-planned and slickly executed theft puzzled both police and medical authorities. There was speculation they planned to try to sell the precious vaccine at inflated prices to private doctors, but most medical men thought there was little chance of such a black-market operation succeeding. The vaccine must be kept under temperature control 10 degrees fahrenheit or it will be useless after 48 hours. And it is relatively easy to spot degenerated vaccine since it turns from a clear, cherry-colored liquid to a cloudy mixture. "If a person were given a shot of degenerated vaccine It could cause a violent reaction," Dr. Groulx said. More Rural Than Urban Accidents The AkJrta Safety Council reported recently that traffic deaths are three times more frequent in the rural districts than in urban areas. Dunne the first six months of 1939. 101 Albertans were killed in car aceidenti. Slightly above the long-term average, 83 were killed in the country and 18 in the city. According to a council spokesman, the rural death rate is attributable to two things: "the abundance of driving done on open roads, which most often are in rurd areas, and increased speed." In safety checks, police have found that the technical defects most commonly at fault are: rear lights, brakes, front lights and the exhaust systems. The spokesman also said eimt times more men than women die in auto accidents. Also, one out of every five traffic fatalities occur on Saturday. Sunday is the second most hazardous.
