THE DAILY ARDMOREITE
Ardmore Thursday August 31 1916.
DR. JOHN W. DUKE. COMMISSION-
ER OF THE STATE BOARD OF
HEALTH SAYS FAKE CURES ARE
The people of Oklahoma should bt
on their guard against "fake" jn-
fantile paralysis "cures" which have
begun to make their way on the mar-
ket. As might he expected these so-
called cures have been most numer-
ous in New York City where (he
epidemic has been worst. Hut the
disease has naturally caused appre-
hension among parents in all sections
of the country and it is to be ex-
pected that efforts will bo made to
take advantage of these natural fears
to .sell the "cures" in question. There
Is just one thing to he firmly remem-
bered in this connection each and
every medicine advertised to cure or
avert infantile paralysis is a fraud.
1 lie best that can be expected is
that the purchaser is throwing away
his money for something harmless.
There is only too much chance that
these preparations by interfering
with the proper treatment of a case
may do actual harm.
Dr. Flexner of the Rockefeller In-
stitute many other experts the fore-
most scientists and physicians of the
country have been concentrating their
attention on infantile paralysis. They
have made some progress. There is
reason for hoping that more will be
made. Hut so far they have abso-
lutely failed to discover any cure for
the disease or any medicine or treat-
ment which will certainly avert it.
When the most skillful and experienc-
ed physicians in the country or world
have failed to find a cure it is absurd
to suppose that some manufacturer
of patent medicines has succeeded.
The School Question.
While some parents may feel appre-
hension over sending their children to
the schools which are soon to open
it can he conservatively stated that
there is no ground for such a feeling
In Oklahoma. The total number of
cases of infantile paralysis in thH
state lias been less than one to each
1l)iH"i) population. These casi-s have
been widely separated. In no case
has there been the slightest approach
to an epidemic. In fact the greatest
number of cases occurring in any
given county was two. Moreover the
disease does not appear to have been
stroncly infectious. Precautions have
been taken by the State Hoard of
Health against the spread of the dis-
ease as well as against possible Infec-
tion from other states. In New York
City Newark N. J. and other places
in that immediate vicinity the author-
ities may find the school problem a
puzzling one. It is not so in Okla-
homa. The people of Oklahoma may be
assured that no attempt will be made
to conceal facts nor to keep away
from them the knowledge of actual
conditions. The state board of health
has discouraged the spreading of ex-
aggerations and unfounded rumors
liable to cause unnecessary public
alarm. It has not made nor will it
make any effort to conceal real con-
ditions or danger. Should there be
any cause for apprehension the people
of Oklahoma will be promptly inform-
ed. So far there has been no real
cause nor any community in the state
in which it would be unsafe for chil-
dren to attend school as usual.
Fall Typhoid Precautions.
Autumn is the time of year when
special precautions should he taken
against typhoid fever. The best pre-
cautions of course which can be taken
is to be inoculated against it and
many physicians are advising this
course. Typhoid inoculation is com-
paratively mild In its effects. It does
not cause any serious indisposition
and even the slight discomfort which
may result lasts for only a short time.
There is no longer any question as to
the good results of typhoid inocula-
tion. It has been tried on a tremen-
In war huge bodies of men are
concentrated under conditions that
are bound to be Insanitary. The dif-
ficulties of getting a pure water sup-
ply for an army especially an army
in the field are insuperable. For cen-
turies typhoid has been the great
scourge of armies. The losses from it
almost invariably have exceeded those
inflicted by an enemy. Yet In the
present Kuropean war the greatest
conflict in history fought under ex-
tremely unsanitary conditions typhoid
is practically unknown. The reason
Is that the armies have been inocu-
lated. The experience of the United

phoid having been practically elimi-

take the utmost precautions at this
time of year to be certain of the
purity of his water supply. Typhoid
is one of the scourges of this country.
