ffeo Dixon Emtio* Tekfrtph Ifcunday, April 1,1954 Pag«13 Judge Rules Pregnancy No Bar to Work RATA VTA. OhIo(*-Judf« Harry Britton. ruling in an unemployment compensation case, says a pregnant woman is capable of holding down a job. Mrs. Dolores 8. Sheppard of Mil-ford asked compensation after, the Cincinnati * Southern Bell Telephone Co. moved its Milford office to Batavia. The Bureau of Unemployment Compensation and its board of review said she was not entitled to the checks because she was physically unfit for employment. Judge Britton said Wednesday the board's decision was "unlawful, unreasonable and against the manifest of evidence." He ordered it to reconsider the case. Husband Gave Her Rash, Wife Says LOS ANGELES Uh— Mrs. Rose S. Savenick, 24, won a divorce Wednesday on testimony that she developed a rash »t the mere sight of her husband Jerome, 30-year-old attorney. "I became allergic to him." she testified, "because of . his abusive, belligerent and offensive treatment. I would break out into a rash all over my face and body. My face became so swollen once that I could hardly see for about three months." Disgust Is Okay BRUSSELS (*— A court of appeal ruled here that an employe could not be fired for using an ill mannered expression upon leaving her work. She was fired, the court said because she "used an expression which incontestably denoted a lack, of education, but which cannot be accepted as a sufficient cause for the breach of a contract without warning nor indemnity, particularly since nothing indicates that this expression referred to her superiors." The court ruled that "on Satur: day night, after a whole week of work and with the prospect of the rest and freedom of the Sunday one can hardly blame an employe for translating into words the feeling of relief he might feel at the time." Final of Three-Part Series: Dreaded Polio Virus May Have Aces Up Its Sleeve Scientifically Vaccine Is Answer; Mass Tests Will Tell EDITOR'S^ NOTE — There is only one way to apply the ultimate test to a vaccine : Administer it in the field. That's what will be done this spring to an army of 500.000 to one million children. This last of three ar. tides pn the polio vaccine developed by Dr. Jonas E. Salk of Plttsburgn discusses the questions to which this spring's trial will provide final i By ALTON L. BLAKESLEE AP Science Reporter NEW YORK (JV-The polio virus could still have some aces up its sleeve to play against the brightly-hopeful polio vaccine. Scientifically it looks as though Dr. Jonas' E. Salk's vaccine can prevent polio by creating protective antibodies in the blood." But how often might the virus attack nerves directly, avoiding the bloodstream w h e r e antibodies stand guard? Can the vaccine create enough antibodies to spill over into nerves, to halt that second avenue of attack? The-field trials on half a million or more children Are there some strains of virus which may not be affected by the Three Virus Types There are three types of families of virus which cause human polio. There can be many different strains , or "cousins" within each family. The vaccine • uses one strain from each family. Do antibodies against one strain protect against other strains in the type of family? From limited tests, Dr. Salk finds evidence that they do. But the field tests hold the real answers whether some strains can sneer at the vaccine. The vaccine faces one hurdle or problem common to all drugs or medical treatments of any kind. This means that some of the .vaccinated children may. for some peculiar reason, fail to develop antibodies. Human Difference* Human differences also mean it is possible that some children may get reactions of various kinds from the vaccine, though it works p'er-fectly for all the rest. The trials will tell whether there is such a possibility, whether it is signifi- Only the field tests can show thc-value or limitations of the vaccine. The firm expectation is that children who take the vaccine will actually be protected against polio this summer. Millions of other children will have to take their chances, as in the past, except that many will receive gamma globulin, the blood medicine which gives temporary antibodies against polio. Many people mistakenly believe that gamma globulin or G.G. was found to be useless last summer. It was pronounced ineffective for use in family contacts— giving it to brothers, sisters or playmates of children who came down with polio. By the time a child became recognizably ill, his close associates had already most probably been exposed to the virus, and it was too late for the shot of G.G. to do any good. But G.G. was not pronounced useless in mass use. Efforts will be made not to use G.G. in areas where the vaccine is being tested, since G.G. could be protecting some children, with the credit going to the, vaccine, or vice-versa. Change of Owners DETROIT I* — A favorite meeting place for Detroit Communists has changed owners and philosophies. The three-story, red brick building frequented for years by various Red groups has been purchased by the A. C. Williams Memorial Missionary Baptist Church for $65,000. The move was annoying to subversive organizations but proved even a harder blow to police, who will have to ferret out the new meeting grounds. In its hey-day as a Communist conference hall, police cars were said to vie with subversives for choice parking spaces in front. The main doors served as a backdrop for FBI movies of persons entering and leaving. TOMORROW MORNING! At 9:00 o'Clock Sharp!
