,ead Poisoning langer Cited ij Users of paint, especially those Jving in rural areas. ·««««·* |nat lead poisoning is a childhood rienace. , '»A survey in Baltimore reveals hat since 1931. lead poisoning--he existence of which the majority If the'public is largely unaware- las affected 301 children. Of, the 217 who survived, possib- ' 50 per cent have been left idiots, in the estimation of Dr. Francis F. Schwentker, professor of pediatrics ht the Johns Hopkins University. Furthermore, there is no way of knowing, said Dr. Schwentker, Sow many additional children have Differed permanent brain damage lorn lead paint which they have iiscontinued eating before developing the symptoms necessary to ·King them to medical attention. "We go to a lot of trouble im- ·aiunizing children to smallpox, liiphtheria and typhoid," he con- Itinued. "and every year there is a ·national campaign against polio- Imyelitis. Yet which is really worse I--a crippled leg or a damaged Ibrain?" Only three cases of polio have .jeen reported in Baltimore this year. None was fatal. Lead poisoning causes disintegration of the cells of the brain. This occurs in«children and not in adults, Dr. Schwentker asserts, because lead poisoning is closely related to ther growing process. Body Stores Up Poisoning The disease also produces an irritation around the cells, which in · turn causes convulsions. In adults ·the first symptoms usually consist Ifk stomach and abdominal pains, ^but by the time such pains occur in children the damage to the brain has generally progressed to an advanced stage. From 75 to 90 per cent of the cases Dr. Schwentker treated were brought to his attention he declared, because of noticeable brain damage. Lead poisoning is a cumulative process. The body does not get rid · of it, as it is able to do with other · +oxic materials--but stores it up. ·Absorbed Into Brain Cells The lead is absorbed into the cells of the growing brain--an absorption which, for some unknown reason, seems to accelerate during ·the summer months. There also develops a definite lead-line on the gums where they meet the teeth. X-rays of the bone usually will reveal the presence of lead for diagnosis purposes. An analysis of the blood will show the amount that has gotten into the system. I) Anything in excess of .03 milligrams per 100 cubic centimeters of blood is considered abnormal. The ingestion of lead from eating lead paint is the principal cause of the disease an America, Dr. Schwentker said. Associated With Teething "Sometime ago," he recalled, 'jit was discovered that lead poisoning was virtually non-existent in Egypt. The reason is that they rarely use lead paint in Egypt. The cost : E excessive and the type of climate makes it unnecessary." ' In this country children usually absorbed the poison by chewing on lead-containing paint or enamel-such as baby-pens, toys, woodwork and walls. For this reason, the ffreater mortality seems to exist in the eighteen-month to the 3-year-old age group when the youngsters are using everything within reach to help themselves teethe. During this period they have been known to peel off flakes of scaling paint from window frames or dig out chunk* or plaster from the walls and eat them. Name Winners At Food ShoV Would Drop Direct Wage, Price Controls WASHINGTON, Nov. 16. . . Eric Johnston, retiring as commander of the nation's defenses, against inflation, recommended today that direct wage and price- controls be dropped "at the earliest possible time." "The only way this can be done is by adopting a firm policy on indirect controls," the Economic Stabilization Director said in advocating greater reliance on taxation and credit policy. Johnston is resigning his post Nov. 30 to return to the presidency of the motion picture association. He discussed the task of his successor at a news conference one day after President Truman accepted the resignation with "real regret." Johnston did not say what he thought would be "the earliest possible time" to substitute indirect controls for direct wage and price curbs. However, on other occasions he has said that, barring world war, controls can be eased off about the middle of 1953. ,,. Johnston forecast a period of "relative calm" in" the anti-inflation battle during the next two or three months. Reminded by reporters that the CIO steel workers are coming up with demands for wage increases that would break present wage ceilings, he said that matter wouldn't reach the .ESA for perhaps three months. Johnston also said he had recommended price director Michael V. DiSalle as his successor in the top stabilization post but that Di- Salle and a number of others hac declined to take it. DiSalle himsel: said no one with authority had asked him to. Gala Thanksgiving Eve MIDNITE SHOW PRE-SHOWI1JG OF A GREAT HIT! (In advance of its recular showing) Young People...
