ESTHERVILLE DAILY Page 3 NEWS, WED., JAN. 17, 1973 Convicted Recruiter Recruits MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - A judge has given a black man convicted of assaulting a policeman a choice of going to jail or recruiting blacks to be tested for sickle cell anemia. "I helped you, now its' your turn to he!»> your people," Criminal Court Judge Alfonso Sepe told Joe Louis Wilcox on Monday. "You will recruit black married couples to be tested for sickle cell anemia. I want you to recruit them by the hundreds to determine if they are carriers of the disease." Wilcox, 40, had pleaded guilty to resisting arrest and assaulting Miami officer Antonio Prieto while Prieto was trying to arrest Wilcox for disorderly conduct. The charge carries a maximum prison term of five years. The 6 - foot - 2, 295 - pounder bowed his head after he admitted the felony, then begged Sepe for mercy. Both Prieto and the prosecutor recommended probation for Wilcox. Announcing his decision, Sepe placed Wilcox on probation for two years and then appended the requirement that Wilcox aid in the search for young blacks who have sickle cell anemia. If Wilcox fails to carry out the mission, he can expect to go to jail, Sepe cautioned. Sickle cell anemia is a hereditary blood disease present in about one out of every 500 newborn blacks. Doctors estimate as many as one in 10 blacks suffer from the malady. The disease causes an abnormal formation of blood protein in body cells. Under emotional stress, cells then form irregular, elongated shapes which clog small vessels, form blood clots and deprive vital body organs of blood and oxygen. There is no known cure for the disease, often fatal. Sepe has made it a practice of requiring defendants to perform a community service as part of their probation "because it's not only constructive for the individual. It's constructive for society. "It also makes these people realize how lucky they are when they see the tragedies in the life around them." Nonsmokers In Danger From Smoke CHICAGO (AP) - There are additional findings that somebody else's smoking may be hazardous to your health. A physician writing in the Jan. 15 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association deals with the possibility in response to a question from another physician. Dr. Donald A. Dukelow of the AMA's department of education was asked: "Is there evidence to support recent claims that a nonsmoker with an all-day exposure to a smoke-filled room inhales as much smoke as though he himself had smoked a pack of cigarettes?" Dukelow told the inquirer his "concern about the hazard of exposure to a smoke-filled room is supported" and cited several studies of the effects of cigarette smoke on nonsmokers. One study cited found that smoking cigarettes In a closed room soon makes the concentration of nicotine and dust particles so high that the nonsmoker inhales as much harmful tobacco byproducts as a smoker inhales from four or five cigarettes. One study found that smokers' children are ill more frequently than nonsmokers' children, usually because of respiratory disease; another showed that: "The smoking environment's effect upon the children in an enviicrment is similar to the cigarette smoke's effect upon the smoker on a reduced scale." Another found: "Smoke from an Idling cigarette contains almost twice the tar and nicotine of smoke inhaled while puffing on a cigarette." Dukelow concluded: "ft is becoming increasingly apparent that the nonsmoker who must be present in the traditional '•moke-filled room' characteristic of many conferences and social gatherings has an exposure to tobacco by - products quite similar to the exposure of the smoker.
