Portugal Is Disturbed by Spat With US By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst LISBON, Portugal — In Portugal 's marbled parliament building—which began as an 18th Century convent — a high government official sighed with regret. "Differences between governments are always unfortunate," he said. "But when they come between friends they are especially painful." For in Portugal there is both a regret and a deep resentment over what the Portuguese regard as United States' abandonment of a friend and ally in NATO and a misunderstanding of Portugal's determination to retain its overseas territories in Africa. Portugal, traditionally aloof from European commitments, joined NATO in 1949 and announced it did so only because of U.S. participation. In 1951, Portugal signed a common defense pact with the United States and gave the U.S. free use of an airfield on Santa Maria Island in the Azores. Refuses Marshall Plan Also in 1951, because of her own economic recovery, Portugal refused further U.S. Marshall Plan aid and has gone on her own ever since. It came as a shock then in 1962 when the United States joined the Afro-Asian countries in demanding that Portugal give up her grip on Angola, her largest and most prosperous province in Africa, and permit self-determination. Portuguese officials freely admit that Portugal's current refusal to sign a new agreement on the Azores base springs from j U.S. and Portuguese differences over Africa.

Blasts Colonial Policies In the United Nations, Salazar charged, self-determination had become synonymous with independence regardless of a people's ability to rule themselves. And in Lisbon there is a convic tion that if independence were to come now to Angola, it would fly into tribal pieces with the whole rich area up for grabs. The winds of change blow slowly over Portugal and change also has been slow to come to its overseas provinces in Africa. It is a source of pride to Portugal that on the bloody "night of the long knives" on March 15, 1961, black African troops turned back the first wave of terrorism that saw the butchering of Europeans in settlements of northern Angola near the border with the Congo. It was the start of the Angolan revolt which focused world atten tion on Portuguese overseas ter ritories.

Victory Over a Contagious Disease (In an effort to wipe out the dangerous public apathy toward measles—-No. 1 disease of the world's children—the Galesburg Register-Mail is cooperating with the Child Health Committee of the Illinois State Medical Society in publishing the following article, the second of a three-part series,) Part tl: The Underestimated Killer of Children Measles — long considered a Galesburg Register-Mail, Golesbura, 111. Tuesday, Sept. 17, 1963 $ SWEETIE PIE By Nmline Seltzer "harmless" childhood affliction- is in reality the most deadly child killer of any Infectious disease. In 1961, neary five times more children were killed by measles than by poliomyelitis. "Practically every child over six months of age is susceptible to the disease," according to Dr. Ralph Kunstadter, chairman of the Illinois State Medical Society's Child Health Committee. "Of those who survive measles, a significant percentage sustain some degree of brain injury and mental impairment." Awareness of the seriousness of measles could serve as a major factor in saving as many as 500 American children from death and 2,000 from measles encephalitis each year. Dr. Kunstadter said. World-wide, hundreds of thousands of children might be spared from death and mental derangement. Therefore, one of the most dangerous aspects of the disease is its image. In the light of serious diseases like polio, diphtheria and typhoid, the measles virus has in contrast been tabbed erroneously as a harmless childhood affliction. "Many parents stubbornly refuse to recognize that the disease they have taken lightly for so many years is a killer and crippler of children," Dr. Kunstadter pointed out. It's not just in America that the disease is regarded so lightly. In India, for instance, people still consider measles as the visitation of a goddess; a desirable and time-honored experience for a child. As a result, children with measles are kept at home without medical aid, even when complications set in. How fatal is measles? In 1961, some 510 American children — 20 in Illinois — died from the disease, according to Dr. Norman J. Rose, Chief of the Bureau of Epidemiology of the Illinois Department of Public Health. And the true death toll may actualy be much higher, because only about 10 per cent of the estimated 4,000,000 measles cases in the United States are reported to the health authorities each year. Dr. Kunstadter cautioned that measles is sometimes a direct cause of a fatal virus pneumonia and more often it lays the groundwork for a fatal bacterial infection. "As high as one out of every 1,000 measles patients develop: encephalitis which may lead to death or some degree of brain injury and mental impairment,' he said.

A recent study at the University of California at Los Angeles found measles antibodies in the cerebrospinal fluid of 75 of the 100 multiple sclerosis patients tested, while no measles antibodies were found in the fluid from 48 healthy persons. The significance of these findings await further studies. While measles constitutes a significant health problem in the United States, it is even more serious in other parts of the world. In some of the underdeveloped nations of Africa, for instance, measles constitutes abut 50 per cent of the infant mortality rate. On March 21 of this year, physicians and parents all over the United States received the announcement by Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare Anthony J. Celebrezze that—after many long years of research — two types of measles immunizing vaccines had been approved by the U.S. Surgeon General. One, the live attenuated type, was immediately made available to the nation's doctors. But the image of measles as a harmless childhood disease persists. With sufficient quantities of two types of measles vaccines available to the nation's physicians, only two million out of 22 million susceptible children have been immunized against measles. Thus, a disease, which six months ago was destined for extinction, still lurks in every school, every playground—wherc- ever susceptible young children congregate.
