VOVEMBCT I, 1950 Vaccine Being Made To Combat Gangrene ST. IXH7M, Nov. 1. («v-Hope# *»s offered today for th« develop-^ •nent of t protective viccln* against «»» gangrene, in always-fe« red Complication of war woundi. Ga» gangrene U a wound Infection caused b}' germs that live in «o!l. Armlet fe»r it because of the wounded'being contaminated where they,fill. , No Marked l>r>fT«u Made A Canadian doctor told 0>e Amer- Publie Health Association that Mstlcs for World War II "show no marked progress ha* been achieved line* 1918 in the specific treatment of gas gangrene in war wounds" despite the Use of such drugs as the sulfas and penicillin. And, said Dr. Victorien Fredette o( the University of Montreal, "still less has been accomplished In the *'ay of preventive immunization." But he declared "new hope" for a vaccine is offered by a substance recently found in cultures of "clos- tridlum perfrlngens"—the principal germ involved in gas gangrene. He calls it the "bursting factor" because he, believes it to be the activating agent that causes toxin, or poison, from the germ to produce infection. And yet, said the doctor, this separate factor in itself does net have the poisonous properties of toxin. Also, it appears to set up immunity to the germ's action when It Is injected into experimental animals. In tests with guinea pigs, he related, vaccinated animals all survived "challenge" doses of gas gangrene germs. In contrast. 80 percent of one group of unvaccinated animals were . killed, and 58 per' cent of another ' group. , _ . Wart Treatment found In another report, Dr. A. R. Wobti- . burne, Denver, Colo., skin specialist, told of a new wart treatment. It involves usa of liquid nitrogen; wrlch ''boils" when it is placed on the wart—producing a temperature degrees below zero as It . hges from a liquid to a gas." . Thus, said Dr. Woodburne, the part is frozen, and falls off in from one to two weeks. . The doctor said the nitrogen treatment "doesn't leave a scar or a raw open area, as Is usually the case with such treatments as x-ray, 'dry ice, aceti cacid and other acids.' Pre-election Rough Stuff In New York .NEW YORK, Nov. 1. Or)—Reports of pre-election vandalism and other rough stuff 'have led Police Commissioner Thomas P. Murphy to assign bodyguards to the candidates for .mayor. Looting of offices and homes and physical assaults also iveic reported In the bitter city campaign for the Nov. 7 election. The reported acts of violence were aimed chiefly at various headquarters and campaign activities of acting Mayor Vincent R, Impellilerri. Murphy, a reform police commissioner appointed by Imnelliterrt declared: "I will riot stand for any vandalism or looting. It makes no different where it originates." Murphy said he had "alerted" his uniformed and detective commanders "to assign men to all the candidates." and declared: "If this thing keeps up. I will assign uniformed men Inside and outside all campaign headquarters." Meanwhile, the police 'roundup of hoodlums to guard against election stroiiR-arni tactics went into Us second week. The vandalism reports included During a television broadcast In his campaign for reelection Devrey was asked whether he would change his mind about Eisenhower If the general returned to military service. "No," replied Dewey..''It would simply broaden his experience and increase his qualifications, if that were possible. I think it would by no means make him unavailable." Eisenhower has been mentioned for command of the North Atlantic Defense Pact military forces. BLrTHEVTU.E (ARK.)'
