Parents To Guard
Dr. C. N. Sisk Points Out That
Dreaded Disease Of Children
Is Now Prevalent
By Dr. C. N. Sisk, District Health
"A mother can have no more heart
rending experience than seeing her
baby slowly choke to death with diph
theria. This is the season of the
year when diphtheria is most preva
lent. Our knowledge of diphtheria
is most satisfactory in that we knuw
the cau.se of the disease and it's mode
of transmission; we are able to click
it's spread, and possess specific pre
ventatives, a precise measure of sus
ceptibility, and a curative agent of
great potency. All the agencies for
the prevention of diphtheria are of
no avail unless parents become inter
ested enough to take advantage of
them at the proper time.
"Diphtheria spreads from per.son to
person through the discharge from
the nose and throat. It may be trans
mitted directly by kissing or 'exposure
to droplet infection in coughing and
sneezing. It may be conveyed indi
rectly by toys, pencils, food, fingers,
spoons, cups, handkerchiefs, etc., that
have been mouthed first by the in
fected child. Milk may become in
fected and transmit the disease.
"Most adults have acquired immu
nity to diphtheria, and infants usu
ally secure immunity ' from the moth
er which protects them for the first
few months of life. After six months
of age practically all babies are sus
ceptible to diphtheria, and it is dur
ing the preschool age that diphtheria
is most fatal.
"Medical science has perfected an
almost absolute preventative against
diphtheria which would eliminate this
scourge if Universally and properly
used. The procedure that all parents
should follow would be to have tne
family physician or the health de
partment administer! al,um precipi
tated toxoid to the baby at six months
of age. This single dose will protect
957c of children against diphtheria.
To be sure it is not one of the b'A not
protected by the first; (lose, have the
Schick test given after a few months
and repeat it every year for a few
"When a child becomes of school age
the Schick test should be given and
toxoid or toxin-antitoxin given until
a negative test is secured.
"Once a child becomes ill with
diphtheria, we have an effective treat
ment in diphtheria antitoxin if given
early in the disease. During this sea
son of the year when diphtheria is
most prevalent parents should not
hesitate to consult their physician im
mediately when the child shows
symptoms of diphtheria, such as sore
throat and a croupy cough. Anti
toxin usually works like magic if
given during the first few hours,
but every day of the disease, (luring
which it's administration is delayed,
increases the danger many times over.
"Wise parents will have their babies
protected against diphtheria by vac
cination at six months of age, and
not take chances on possible death or
permanent injury to the heart by
having the disease."
Ahead Un V Jans
With Armistice Day less that a
month away, the American Legion, of
Waynesville, asks that the people of
this community make their plans to
co-operate with them to make this
year's program the best that has ever
been held. '-,"' ,
The program committee has ten
working for some time, and is get
ting one worked up that will be a
credit to any city, that is if given
the proper support and co-operation.
It is hoped that the stores of hay
nesville, will close between the hours
of 11:00 A, M. and 1:00 P. M. to take
part in the parade and program that
is to be given at a pla.e to be an
nounced later. . c 'ono
At a later date, when definite plans
are made, a full program will appear
in this paper.
