V7iii Summer Comes Polio
The first infantile paralysis cases in the county were report
ed! to the health office Saturday and there are other instances
'."where the disease ta suspected.
; Dr. N. Thomas Ennett, health officer, stated, however, that
there is no reason for parents to become panicky, and although
" the outbreak of polio this year has started several weeks earlier
than usual, Philip 9. Randolph, state representative of the Na
tional Foundation, for Infantile Paralysis says the State" is far
better 'prepared for a seVcre polio epidemic than when the 1944
At this time last year there were only 22 cases In the State
and at present the number is half of the total for 1944.
Although the medical profession cannot give specific do's
and don'ts in regard to preventing polio, there is basis for belief
V that overfatigue and chilling of the body make a child or adult
more susceptible to the disease.
:; : As for swimming, Dr. Ennett said that there is more likeli
. hood of disease germs being picked up in still bodies of water,
" such as swimming pools or lakes. Doctors and scientists agree
that water such as we have here, constantly moving and being
"sterilized" by wind and sun Is no harborer of disease.
Polio is one of the most serious maladies of our modern
age. Money obtained from the March of Dimes is being used to
seek the cause of it, but whether infantile paralysis can never
be conquered by inoculation, as in the case of smallpox, remains
to be seen. Science has gone J long way in fighting polio in that
numerous ways have been found to restore victims to health.
Actually, the best advice parents can follow while polio
1 rages is to keep children in the best physical condition possible.
. Few disease germs of any type can take hold then, and if thpy
should, the victim will have necessary resources to fight them.
Donkeys Played Ball
There Was a laugh a minute Thursday night at the Donkey
Somebody said that the whole playing field had nothing but
jackasses on it, but that's not true. There were only 12 donkeys,
distinguishing feature between them and the other players being
that they had four legs.
The donkeys were healthy-looking critters and quite a few
' of them full of the old Nick. Whan we first heard about the
proposed entertainment, nothing but broken-down burros ready
for the glue factory were expected.
The donkeys and the Lions got along right well. The Ilee
.., Hawefs carried the Lions to a 94 victory over the Donkey Sere
naded. Maybe Joe Rose, Jr., neWly-etected Tail Twister in the
civic organization, did a bit of donkey tail twisting before the
'. first iftniag, letting the burros know who was boss. '
The Lions certainly hate done their share in providing en
' ' tertainmeht this year. The whole county enjoyed their talent

Announcement has boe.i made
that the local sailing club will hold
the 91st annual sailboat racing on
July 4th. Let's go back to the year
1857 and see what was going on
in this region about that date, and
try and figure out who might have
taken part in such races at that
time. Morehead CHy had not been
established until August of that
year so we doubt If Gib Willis, D.
G. Bell, Thurlaw Whealton or Char

There were such old timers as
Absolon Shepard, William Fisher,
Rev. Brldgers Arendell and John

boys might have had a sharpie or
comet and fixed up a sailing race
but we doubt it . very much. We
find no such record in the early
history of the town. However we
are willing to let the record nana
that the Morehead City Sailing
Club has sponsored sailboat racing
for the past 91 years.

Five new business ventures open

Youth Cepter, catering to clothing
for the youngsters and teenagers,
occupies the store space recently
vacated by Masons. Then there is
the Book Nook tucked away iruthe
basement shop at the corner of
