March 22,1938 M €i TWPAPERSAT EMMETSBURG TO BUYOUT THIRD Palo Alto Tribune Ceases -Publication; Merchants Back New Move A deal In tvhlch the Emmetsburg Democrat and the Emmetsburg Thursday Reporter, local weekly newspapers will purchase a third paper In Emmetsburg, the Palo Alto Tribune, was revealed this week. The purchase price wilt be $5,000. If pr«*ftt rfetotlatlons are completed, It was learned. Merchants from the town are tacking the deal; three newspaper have been at least one too many, they say, preventing the necesaary concentrated subcsriptlon lists. Several weeks ago the Tribune suspended publication. Its editor, Charles Knouse, former t/ehtgh, Town, newspaper editor, filed suit for $2,000 against Miss Margaret Donovan of Emmetsburg, former Tribune owner. Knouse, who recently bought the Tribune from Miss Donovan, accused the Emmetsburg woman of misrepresenting the value of the newspaper. In his petition, filed InVdlstrict court here, he asserted that the machinery In the Tribune plant was In bad repair and that the subcsriptlon and advertising business were not up to specifications given him by Miss Donovan. Charging fraud, Knouso said he contracted to pay i7,6dO for the paper and that Its actual value did not exceed $5,600. Following the Tribune's suspension. Knouse obtained employment In the Democrat newspaper office. The Democrat is edited and published by William T. Branegan. George Flood and K. D. Warner are editor and publishers, respectively, of the Thursday Reporter. An estbalished newspaper In Emmetsburg for many years, the Palo Alto Tribune was edited by the late Miss Anna Donovan.

HANSEN General Contracting and Building Phone 3 1 7-J Algona, Iowa The Iowa State Department of Health recently announced that beginning March 15. 1938. certain changes will so into effect with respect to the control and management of scarlet fever and septic yore throat. New rules and regulations provide for a minimum period of isolation of 21 days from the day of onset of illness. Isolation will apply not alone to the typical scarlet fever case but to all persons having symptoms or signs of scarlet fever. whether n rash is present or not. In some instances it may be advisable for a public health laboratory to report on the presence or absence of the scarlet fever germ. The breadwinner, according to the new ruling, may enter and leave his home when there is a case of scarlet fever, provided he is not n food handler, does not come in contact with the patient or with croups of children and gives satisfactory evidence of immunity to the diseaso. However, if he handles d:iiry products or ready-to-eat fcods ; the breadwinner or other adult i should livo elsewhere while the . home is placarded and not resume employment until 3 to 7 days after last exposure. This arrangement also applies to te.'irhers and others who come in contact with children. When the patient remains at home, school children must live elsewhere in order to continue school work. Children who are not immune must remain away for a week before resuming school work. If children give satisfactory evidence of immunity, thsy may return to school the third day after exposure. Proper isolation of the patient in one room, will help greatly to prevent the spread of K-arlet fever to others in the home. Health officials believe that the granting to the breadwinner the privili-xr. under certain conditions of * nit-ring and leaving his home during the i.-olatinn period, will as- ire mure complete cooperation of - : fiimili !
