Francis, M.D., State Epidemiologist with the Division of Health, Department of Social and Health Services. "Parents are just not getting their children immunized against measles," said Dr. Francis. "That's why we are seeing more cases in the State; 904 reported last year, 140 in the first month of this year." "The vaccine is available from private physicians or public health departments for children over the age of one year." "When immunization is available, at little or no cost, 1 see no reason why children over the age of one year should be exposed to a disease which may have serious complications," he said. "The complications include ear infection, pneumonia, damage to the heart and appendicitis." Encephalitis occurs in one-out-of-1000 measles cases, mental retardation in 1/3,000 and death in 1/10,000. It is most likely to produce mental and physical damage during the first three years of life. Health officials think that children who have not had measles or the vaccine are likely to contract the disease. Once vaccinated, there is less than a five per cent chance that the child will I MYSELF must mix with action lest I wither by despair. Alfred, Lord Tennyson contract measles. Looking at the incidence of measles over the past years, Dr. Francis noted that 5,876 cases were reported in 1967. Following the intensive effort in 1967 to immunize children, the number of cases fell to 610 in 1968, and 82 in 196~ Last year, 904 cases were reported. Now, in the first month of 1 97 1, 140 cases have been reported, 118 of them in Spokane County. Spokane County is conducting a special vaccination program for children. Dr. Francis noted the recent immunizatin campaign against rubella and reminded parents that a rubella shot does not protect against measles. Measles and rubella are two different diseases, each with its own kind of vaccine. Both diseases are caused by a virus and are highly contagious. Children should be immunized against both diseases. Dr. Francis explained that measles is also known as red measles, 8-day measles and hard measles, its symptoms last 7-14 days -- a high fever, rash and cough. One attack of measles usually gives lifetime protection against measles. Rubella is also known as German measles, 3-day measles, and light measles. Its symptoms last 2-4 days and consist of a mild fever, sore throat, runny nose and a rash. rary By MORLEY KRAMER February is American Music Month and the Shelton Public Library is featuring a display of books about our musical heritage. One Hundred Years of Music in America, edited by Paul Henry Land, offers a compreshensive report on every aspect of American musical life. Seventeen specialists have written Snow Removal Costs Are Told The cost of clearing the way through the worst snow slides in 30 years and cleaning up highways after rampaging flood waters will cost ~n estimated $2 million over normal maintenance costs, the Washington State Highway Department reported. The cost of removing snow and repairing highways totaled $1,936,800 with $45,000 of this above normal amount for snow slide removal and clearing ice and snow from highways. The extra money was used to pay for hiring additional maintenance crew members, paying overtime, and for additional equipment plus a multitude of needs caused by the weather and road condition emergencies. ALL ANIMALS are equal but some animals are more equal than others. George Orwell isplay authoritative articles in a very readable form on such things as the business of music, music education and copyright and the creative arts among other things. The American Heritage Songbook contains 120 great songs from our nation's past, compiled and arranged by Ruth and Norman Lloyd. Americans stepped off Plymouth Rock into a "howling wilderness" singing "mirthful" songs of hope and salvation. By the turn of the century they had pushed their frontier into the Pacific - still singing lustily. Here is the story of that tuneful American adventure, told as it should be told - in music and lyrics, and complete with historical notes and anecdotes, plus contemporary illustrations. 1776, a musical play by Peter Stone and Sherman Edwards is an imaginative re-creation of the SIC momentous days from May 8 to July 4 in Philadelphia when the Second Continental Congress argued about, voted on, and signed the Declaration of Independence. The songs richly add to the emotional depth and ~dramatic turning points of the play. Their lyrics range from the humorous to the scathing. To find out more about rock music, The Age of Rock by Jonathan Eisen tells just about anything anybody needs to know about rock music and the major rock groups and big names. Rock From the Beginning by Nik Cohn tells you how rock feels. The sounds, the groups, the managers and the mythmakers are all here in this book. Learn about American music at the Shelton Public Library.
