Points 2 and 3, Mr. Pate pointed
out, are special provisions for the

enactment of the program. He
said it is anticipated that differ

not be grazed after June 22.
Noxious weeds must be controlled
on the acreage.
Participation 1 111 the Acreage
Reserve program under the Soil

grower’s future acreage allot

Even though the farmer reduc

and help with surplus adjustment,
he, will receive credit for having
planted the full amount of his
acreage allotment. In that way,
his tobacco history will be protect

Dr. Melvin W. Webb, Burns

directed letters to all physicians

that they urge the in their
encourage the use of the Polio
myel'tis vaccine which is now
'available in plentiful amounts.
/Now is the season of greatest in
cidence of the dreaded disease, Dr.
Webb said, and inoculation now .
could easily prevent the disease
in our county.
The U. S. Public Health Ser
vice, The American Medical Asso- ,
ciation and all other medical or
ganizations have concurred in the
opinion that it is both safe and
desirable to use, Dr. Webb said.
He pointed out that over thirty
million children in the United
States have been inoculated with
out any ill effect since May, 1955.
It has been proven in 23 test
areas that the vaccine is at least
75% effective in preventing the
paralyzing form of the disease, he ,
said. V
The vaccine Is available at the
Public Health Office or from
your private physician.
“It is my personal feeling,” Dr.
Webb said, “that everyone should
be vaccinated, from the old to
the yoking; it is particularly urg
ent that all children and expect- 1
