Controlling Polio Research workers at Johns Hopkins and Yale University have reported to a medical conference held in New York that they may have the an swer to win the fight against infan tile paralysis. Their theory is that polio is a two stage disease and that during the first stage, the polio virus is in the blood stream but that it is relatively harm less. Paraylsis is the result in the second stage when the virus attacks the nerves. The researchers believe that a great many people, have the first stage , polio without even realizing it, and that a serum made from the blood of these persons will immunize others against second stage polio. This theory will be tested this sum mer by the National foundation for Infantile Paralysis in the polio-epi-demis areas. If the tests prove suc cessful, polio should hereafter be con sidered one of the most readily pre ventable diseases. ' The importance of finding a meth od of combatting Snfantile paralysis is strikingly brought to the atten tion of- each' of us by the fact that about 30,000 persons have been strick en by this disease during each of the past several years, and from five to eight per cent of those so stricken die I point where they must charge motor ists 38 a year to Jark on the street, it 18 s hu any U1 VI US. Al though New York is not the first city to consider such s plan, it is gratify ing that motorists in that city raised such a storm of protest, they defeat ed this additional tax on the automo bile. , The Korean Deadlock Peacp in Korea still apparently hinges on these points of discussion: the. Communist demand that the Sov iet Union serve as one of the six neutral nations to police , the truce, ! the right of the North Koreans to build airfields during tha truce, and developing a satisfactory plan for ex changing prisoners. In informed circles, the opinion is held that if the prisoner exchange can be worked out, there will be peace in Korea. The deadlock on . returning prisoners is that the Communists are demanding that all prisoners be re- turned regardless of their wishes in the matter. ' It is conceivable that this deadlock may be broken by replacing on the nris-turned. civilians who wish to be returned by civilians who wish to be repatriated, A Bad Tax Killed In New York City, recently, the au thorities decided to impose a $6 a year fee on all those who would park their automobiles' in city streets. On top of all the other taxes New York City drivers' were paying, this seemed to them to be the last straw and they Taised such a storm of protest that the city authorities, in the end, with drew the proposal. Drivers of automobiles today, though not required by law in many .states to carry "liability insurance to insure their responsibility, are bur- dened by almost every kind of tax imaginable. In the first place, if they pay as much as $2,000 for an automo bile, they are paying over $500 in tax- -es. This tax estimate covers all tax es, beginning with raw materials that go into the -car and ending with the Federal tax on tfie sale of each new tar. : ';-:V---.---V- y':-K' After this tax, the motorist is re quired to buy a license, too pay an in spection tax in most states, to pay fairly heavy taxes on gasoline, both , Federal and IState, and to pay many other taxes. He also pays (Federal taxes on every new accessory he buys and is beset with just about every other tax on the operation of a motor vehicle that can be thought up by some city, county, state or federal trol, Revenue Building Annex.
