Group Venereal disease in Washington, up 15% in a single year, is raging at "epidemic proportions" in the state, with young people showing spectacularly high increases in Gonorrhea - and "supposedly conquered" Syphilis could rack up a 200% rise in the latest reports. These disclosures came out of a press conference in the Olympic Hotel, Seattle, to announce Governor Daniel J. Evans' designation of October as "Venereal Disease Awareness and Prevention Month." The press meeting, sponsored by the Washington State Pharmaceutical Association, also marked initiation by Washington's 950 pharmacies of a major educational and missionary activity to present the facts about V.D. to the public. The pharmacists will give special emphasis to the use of preventive devices such as prophylactics - the condom - as the main control device.

George A. Lincoln, Director of the Office of Emergency Preparedness, noted that more than 1,000 complaints about gas prices have been logged out of a total of 12,000 complaints to date. OEP, by order of the Cost of Living Council, is responsible for administration and enforcement of the 90-day wage-price freeze announced by President Nixon on August 15. The Internal Revenue Service, which receives and investigates the complaints, has reported that nearly 600 or 60% of the investigations conducted on the complaints were closed when no violation was found to exist. In 14% of the total cases, there was compliance after an Internal Revenue Service representative contacted the alleged violator. There are still 269 cases A picture is worth a thousand words and could also be worth money to you in the event of a fire, natural disaster or burglary in your home or apartment. An effective way to insure the return or replacement of lost, stolen or destroyed possessions is to make an inventory of all household items, including serial numbers. In addition, if a snapshot or filmed record is kept, it would be a very simple method of providing excellent assistance to both the homeowner and the insurance company in determining the total extent of the loss. The snapshots or file should be kept, along with the inventory list, in a safe place away from your home, such as a safe deposit box, so that they are not lost or destroyed with the rest of your possessions. A photographic record of your possessions is particularly useful if you have many unusual items of furniture. It is not as functional, however, as a record of clothing, silver or similar items. A filmed register of your possessions is not a substitute for a conscientiously-gathered inventory and should be used only as a secondary record.

State Senator Peter D. Francis, author of a recently-enacted bill to permit expanded "availability" of V.D. prophylactics argued that venereal disease control in the state continues to be seriously hampered by "both ignorance and embarrassmer~t." State Representative Lois North told the conference that efforts to open up channels of information on V.D. are still being hurt by some legislators pushing proposed taws to restrict venereal disease education. "This," she said, "is one of the shocking facts about all of the work to fight venereal disease - by education, prevention and treatment; we no sooner get a 1909 repressive law wiped off the books than somebody proposes a new law to restrict venereal disease education." Dr. A. It. B. Pedersen, head of Venereal Disease Control of the Protests involving retail gasoline prices under vigorous investigation by the Internal Revenue Service. Lincoln, who is a member of the Cost of Living Council, is also chairman of the Oil Policy Committee and the Joint Board for Fuel Supply and Fuel Transport. Creath A. Tooley, Regional Director of OEP Region 10, indicated there were 101 complaints alleging violations by gasoline retailers in his Region. Mr. Tooley said investigation showed that 64 of them were unfounded and 21 represented violations of the wage-price freeze. Of the remainder, 20 who were contacted agreed that they were in violation and voluntarily rolled back their prices. Sixteen cases are still under investigation. Seattle-King County ttealth Department, advised that V.D. in the state today is raging bigger than ever... "1 5 years after all of us in the field thought it was about eradicated. "What went wrong'?" he asked. "First, the social climate changed; the attitude of permissiveness has brought special problems - there's a definite shortage of 'abstinence.' And second: there is a growing reservoir of undiagnosed Gonorrhea patients mostly women walking around and giving the disease to others. Unless these people come in for screening, they are bound to go on giving the disease to others who give it to more people. But even at best, the screening tests for Gonorrhea now are too sophisticated; they are not suitable for widespread screening. We have no simple blood tests; there are no vaccines; case tracking is expensive." Robert H. Hendrickson, president of the pharmacists' organization, disclosed that pharmacists will distribute V.D. literature and post V.D. awareness signs in their stores in the special month and beyond.., will help by advising the public on sources for diagnosis and treatment... will stress the importance of prevention. Miss Lucille Trucano, Superintendent of tlealth Education for the state, said that only half of Washington secondaryschools teach about venereal disease.., and the educationgiven in that half is "inadequate." "The plain fact," she said, "is that there are not enough qualified teachers assigned to the task of teaching about V.D. even though such teachers are available. Most times, the subject is taught by teachers with 'free time;' it's a leftover assignment for somebody, at best. The answer? First, parents must demand that V.I). be handled as an organized instructional program. Second, local school boards must employ qualified people, and third, school budgets Want a shoe with comfort, style and in dress or casual? We've got them.

More time is spent dissecting a frog's leg in high school biology than is given to the facts about this most prevalent of all the communicable diseases." Venereal Disease in the state, said [,ewis R. Brenner, product development manager of Youngs l)rug Products Corporation might actually total as much as one per cent of the population. "It's acknowledged that venereal disease is 'under-reported' by multiples thai may run as high as nine unreported cases to every one reported. If we use a conservative factor of four times, then it would appear that at least one per cenl of the state's population has V.D. "'V.I)., as it happens, is unique in that it is of all serious illnesses tile most preventable. V.I)., and particularly Gonorrhea, can be prevented when proper prophylactic products are properly used." Dr. Marshall Y. Kremers, Supervisor of the V.D.
