(News-Herald Photo) Increase in VD Causing Concern A marked increase in the number of patients with veneral disease has been noted by local health authorities during the past two or three months. Early treatment of such paii- ents is highly important, physicians point out, not only for the patients themselves but to avoid spreading the disease. The increase was noted in the number of syphilis cases, with most of the patients becoming infected by careless associations in Ciudad Acuna. In a ddition, officers cite dangers of similar association in Del Rio with irresponsible girls and women of pliant j morals. I Spread of thc disease is by direct contact, physicians say. ; Food handlers in the city are I all given physical check ups periodically in compliance with city j health practices; no danger of < spread of the disease comes from this area, physicians said. Areas considered trouble spots, such as parks and along some areas of San Felipe Creek, are patrolcd hy police in an effort to curb promiscuity. Women and girls have been taken into custody from time to time but officers say there Is little to be done oth- , er than that locally.
