April 20, 1973 Hasty Preparation Workmen use a power shovel to pour mud into wooden frames at Morgan City several feet higher than downtown streets, used to raise the floodwall four feet yesterday in Morgan UNIFAX (Sty, La. The glutted Atchafalaya River swept into the gulf Massive Flooding Threatens Town MORGAN CITY, La. — The greatest threat of massive flooding in Morgan City will come Saturday with the arrival of a flood crest from upstream. But several residents are not waiting to find out if a protective levee, bolstered Thursday by National Guard troops, will hold. "A lot of people have already (UPI) sent their families out," said real estate agent C. J. Cutrpne. "I sent mine out yesterday." Guardsmen, local citizens and Corps of Engineers workers packed mud and plywood on the dikes Thursday, increasing their height by four feet. Officials said they should hold the swell of overflow water expected. ...TIME 70 GIVE Anderson florists ''Say Hoppy Eoster With Flowers" FREE DELIVERY —30 DAY CHARGE 128 N. BROAD—DIAL 342-3121 "It is my judgment that Morgan City will be spared," said Sen; Russell B. Long; D- La., who toured the city and conferred with Corps officials Thursday. "But unfortunately, there are people in exposed areas who will have to be evacuated." He spoke of lowlands to the north of Morgan City and outside the eastern edge of the Atchafalaya basin levee, where a number of new subdivisions are unprotected from backwater flooding. The crisis predicted Saturday was caused by the forced opening of the Morganza Spillway 100 miles north of Morgan City on the Mississippi WIU Alums Set Genesee Meeting MACOMB - Western Illinois University's Henry County-area alumni chapter will hold a dinner meeting May 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the Deck Plaza, Geneseo.

The spillway, opened to relieve pressure on the Mississippi's strained seawalls, has sent tons of water spilling into the Atchafalaya River basin toward Morgan City, where 20,000 persons live. High tides retarded drainage of water already in the Atchafalaya and made the problem worse Thursday. Water coursed through the dikes several feet above the downtown area, but the levefe held. Tides ran five feet above sea level, backing water into the Atchafalaya while the Mississippi River runoff was heading downstream from the other direction. The situation was made even more critical by more than a foot of rain that fell during the week, filling the Atcbafdaya nearly to capacity before Morganza was opened. Painless Method Of Sterilization Devised for Men BALTIMOIIE (VPl) ^Piln* teas st«rlliziti«i by liioeiiltUon ifistead o( nirgery oouM be used by men who Msedate vastdomies with castration, lay two Johns Hopldns tniver- »ity Hospital researchers who hope to begin clinical inoculations by mid'Summer. Dr. Coy Freeman, a urologist, and pharmacologist Donald S. Coffey Thursday announced development of a "chemical v a s e c t o m y" designed to make cfbsolete the surgical technique. Freeman said experiments on animals showed that sclerosing chemicals such as ethanol formaldehyde, silver nitrate and others "known for their low toxicity when mhied with body fluids" scarred the sperm ducts and rendered the aidmals sterile. There were no adverse affects on the animals' sex lives, they said. Freeman, who with Coffey presented the findings to a meeting of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology in Atlantic diy, said the inoculations appear to be irreversible, unlike some surgical vasectomies. Unlike vasectomies requiring normal surgical equi|Hnent, the inoculations would requhre only a needle, syringe and the sclerosing chemical. Another advantage, he said, would be elimination of "the mistaken fear of castration" associated with surgery. "Not only wiU this be appreciated by many prospective vasectomy candidates but it will eliminate the need for even modest surgical facilities," said Praenan. He said that one million American men seek sterilization each year. The urologist, who laM the bkMdiess sterilieations would be a boon to overpopulated and underdeveloped nations, said clinical trials will begin this summer if approved by the hospital research committee.

The board's next meeting wil be April 24 at 7:30 p.m. me all you can about his^aplas mosis. Does it shorten one's life and how does it affect its victim? How much pain is to be expected from it and In general how does it work? Dear Reader — Histoplas­ mosis is a very common disorder in many countries of the world, including the United States — partipufarly in the mid-west region. It's a fungus disease and one that enters the body by the spores of the fungus betaig in haled Into the lungs. In many ways it resembles tuberculosis. Except, I hasten to add, it is usually spread by dust and areas where there is mold and fungus growth such as chicken houses, cellars and caves, rather than from person to person. Also, in most Instances it is not nearly as dangerous as tubercukMis. The vast majority of people who have been exposed to histo­ plasmosis — and in certain localities of the United States this includes 80 to 90 per cent of the population — will never know that they've been exposed to the fungi. They are merely inhaled into the lungs, the body combats them, there is no further progression, and the usual manifestation is a positive skin test, similar to the type of skin test that's used in diagnosing tuberculosis. Minor Symptoms There are some individuals who have minor symptoms during the time they are initially exposed. This behaves very much like a simple respiratory illness and in a more severe form may cause cough, shortness of breath, and even chest pain. Ahnost all of the individuals who have this type of initial response recover from the illness spontaneously. There small calcifications spread through different hmg areas. The lymph hod^^ particularly in the center of the chest, may become calcified. 11)ese can then be seen on X-rays and because ol their diffuse calcified characteristics usually alert the doctor to the probability that the individual has had an episode of histoplas­ mosis hi the past. Individuals who have recovered from the respiratory form that I mentioned above are not likely to have any further difficulties either. Rarely, and I want to emphasize rarely, the disease can sivead throughout the body and effect numerous organs just as tuberculosis can spread and involve other organs. There are a variety of symptoms that can then result depending on the organs involved and how seriously they are damaged, this complication is known as disseminated histofriasmosis and it can be treated with reasonable success. Considering the point that the vast majority of the p:>puIation in some regions have had histoplasmosis and their body has coped with it, and the extreme rarity of the disseminated form in general histoplas­ mosis, it is considered as a "benign" disorder, meaning as far as the total health picture is concerned it's not very impar- tant and not very likely to pose any serious threat to health.
