12 JSalesburg Register*Mail, Galesburg, Monday, July 2, 1973 Tetanus Immunization Program/ Promoted By Warren Farm Bureau MONMOUTH - A countywide tetanus immunization program for Warren County is being promoted by the Warren County Farm Bureau Women's Safety Committee, and through the cooperation of the Warren County Medical Society. A series of three free immunization injections will be given. The first injections will be given during the week of July 9-14; the second shots, during the week of Aug. 6-11, and the third shots, six months later. AU adults 18 years of age and over are urged to take advantage of this free service by contacting their family physician. Anyone having had a first basic shot and no booster in 8-10 years will need just a booster shot. Anyone having had no basic shot, will need the three injections. Members of the Farm Bureau Women's Safety Committee described the nature of the disease: — Tetanus is a highly fatal disease caused by the tetanus bacillus and characterized by muscle spasm and convulsions. Because stiffness of the jaw is often one of the first symptoms, it is also known as lockjaw. — Tetanus is a serious illness, but because of widespread im­ munization, it now strikes only about 500 people in the United States each year. — Tetanus bacilli, which grow in the intestines of animals are prevalent in rural areas. They are found in soil and dust and are spread by animal feces. The organisms enter the body through a break in the skin, particularly in puncture wounds, including those caused by nails, splinters, insect bite or gunshot. Occasionally, the original wound appears trivial and heals quickly; more often there is obvious infection. — Symptoms may include stiffness of the jaw, difficulty in swallowing, Stiffness of the neck, restlessness, irritability, headache, chills, fever and convulsions. Muscles in the abdomen, back, neck and face may go into spasm. If the infection is severe, convulsions are set off by slight disturbances, such as noises and drafts. During convulsions, there is difficulty in breathing and the possibility of asphyxiation. — The most important prevention weapon against tetanus is immunization with tetanus toxoid, which enables the body to manufacture its own antitoxin against future tetanus contamination.

OAKLAND, Calif. (UPI) - America's' first new mass transit system in 65 years was struck today by 1,200 workers in a dispute over wage equalization and other contract matters. The Bay Area Rapid Transit System does not run on weekends but the strike at midnight by the two labor unions was expected to cause hardship for the thousands of commuters who move over the 58-mile network each weekday. The transit district announced earlier that it would not try to operate the trains if a strike was called. BART carries about 28,000 persons daily along its Richmond to Fremont line and another 7,000 between Oakland and Concord in eastern Contra Costa County. Open in May The last leg of the system's East Bay line was opened in May and only the 3.6-mile tube beneath the Bay between San Francisco and Oakland and the San Francisco subway remained to be finished in the $1.4 billion system. Commuters were advised to find other means of getting to work in the East Bay. Paul V a r a c a 11 i, executive secretary of Local 390 of the United Public Employes, said 900 clerical and maintenance employes struck along with 300 transportation employes who are members of the Amalgamated Transit Union. Picket lines went up immediately, he said. The major problem centered around 150 employes who transferred to BART from other area transit systems with pay scales guaranteed by federal statute. "In some instances these pay scales were $2 more an hour than other employes doing the same work were receiving," said Varacalli.

UNIFAX Mexican Election Will Test Presidency L Warrior Watches Eclipse A young Samburu warrier watches the eclipse of the sun in Lake Rudolph, Kenya, Saturday. The seven-minute, four- second eclipse was second longest in history. Scientists from around the world worked on a wide range of experiments to establish its effects on the planets, the weather, sunlight, man, animal and marine life. UNIFAX Eclipse Scientists Elated, But Natives Were Unhappy LOIYANGALANI, Kenya Millions of Mexicans voted hsavily but calmly Sunday for 1*4 congressmen, seven governors and 87 mayors in elections that some political experts described as really a test of President Luis Echeverria's papular ity. Echeverria is at the halfway paint in his six-year term and eicperts said the vote Sunday was the first test of his presidency. Results Sunday Final official results will not come until next Sunday—after a count of votes in all 42,000 precincts. For ( Echeverria and his governing Revolutionary Institutional party (PRI), the most important \ statistic was the level of abstention. , Everyone expected PRI candidates to score a landslide victory, as they have over the past 40 years of Mexican politics. But in an effort to create more voter interest, the government passed a new election law giving'* 18-to-21 year-olds the vote, granting opposition parties time on television at peak viewing hours and imposed fines on persons who fail to vote. Officials said a six-month campaign ended with nearly 97 per cent of Mexico's 15 million eligible voters registered. Voting Calm Voting was described as calm and orderly Sunday. Police said the only problem was the lengthy wait in some places as voters turned out in heavy numbers. "We believe at least 65 per cent voted, probably more," said a spokesman for the Federation Electoral Commission. Voters were choosing among candidates for 194 Chamber of Deputy seats, seven governors and 87 mayors. The PRI was expected to win all 194 deputies seats and all the governorships, plus most of the city hall races. Two opposition parties said they hoped to win some scattered seats in provincial districts. Opposition parties also were seeking about 20 deputies seats granted minority parties on the basis of total vote percentages. • Warplanes' Bombs Fall Near Phnom Penh (UPI) — The foreign scientists, poring over sophisticated astronomical claimed it equipment, pro- a solid success. Liberian Tanker Burns Fire following an explosion injured two crewmen of the Liberian oil and chemical tanker Cygnus which was undergoing cleaning of her tanks in Seattle's Elliott Bay. The blast shook homes and rattled city Sunday. UNIFAX windows over large areas of the African natives were not so sure. Scientists by the hundreds gathered at remote points and put up telescopes and recording gear to observe and capture the sun in eclipse and the wide shadow it cast across the African continent. Great Success "It's been a great success, said one scientist. "A great moment." "We got whatever we came to collect," said Bill Curtis of Boulder, Col., one of hundreds who came to this isolated village on the shores of Lake Rudolf to view the sun as the moon passed between it and the earth Saturday. > But villagers thought the scientists had come to steal the sun and that the eclipse heralded a famine, drought, plague of locusts or the end of the world. They barricaded their huts with sheet metal and cardboard. The seven-minute, four-second eclipse was the second longest since man began keeping accurate records of the phenomenon. Second Contingent A second major contingent of scientists gathered at Chinguet- ti, in Mauritania, which also lay in the direct path of the area where the moon's shadow lasts the longest. In Nouakchott, the capital of Mauritania, holy men summoned Moslems to mosques to pray while the eclipse darkened the area. PHNOM PENH (UPI) - U.S. warplanes carried out heavy bombing raids within a 20-mile radius of Phnom Penh today, supporting government troops battling Communist forces north and south of the capital. The deep rumble of bombs bursting reverberated through Phnom Penh during the night, awakening residents of the city on the 118th consecutive day of intense U.S. air activity over Cambodia. Cambodian command spokesman Col. Am Rong said he understood some strikes were in support of troops fighting 13 miles south of the city on Highway 3, where at least seven government troops were wounded and one killed in fighting Sunday. In one incident, field reports said a U.S. C130 gunship accidentally strafed a govern­ ment troop position today in the Highway 3 area, killing one soldier and wounding 10 others. Dawn Strafing The reports said the strafing occurred before dawn at Kompong Tuol, 15 miles from Phnom Penh on Highway 3. The nearby position of Tuk Thla was attacked by rebel mortar and rocket fire, killing one government soldier and wounding eight others, the reports said. Both government and Communist-led forces were reported dug in near the Highway 3 town of Kompong Kantout. On the east bank of the Bassac River 15 miles south of Phnom Penh, the command said, Communists attacked government forces with "toxic gas." It said 60 troops were put out of action by this. Am Rong also said govern­ ment positions at the village of Baren were under heavy pressure. Highway Closed The command said 27 rebel troops died Sunday 36 miles northwest of Phnom Penh on Highway 5. The highway has been closed for two weeks by rebel activity. Am Rong said at least two miles of the road, the only highway to the rice-rich western provinces, were still occupied by the rebels. , In ' political developments, Prime Minister In Tarn said Sunday that he believed President Nixon has "some plan" for a Cambodian cease-fire.
