Polio Preventative Perfected
CLEVELAND Gamma Globulin will' prevent much paralysis
from polio it was disclosed Wednesday. It is the first practical pre
ventative. Scientific proof came from tests on 55,000 children this
summer and last. Scientists credited the injections made from hu
man blood with saving 52 children from polio in towns with raging
There are drawbacks to this preventative, so it is not the final
or best answer to halt polio. It is not a vaccine. It protects about
five weeks. Eut it could save many children, even adults, from
Dr. William Hammon of the University of Pittsburgh announced
results of tests to the American Public Health Association. "Its
usefulness will be limited," he said, "partly because the protective
effect is temporary, partly because there is not enough Gamma
Globulin to give every child. Demands for indiscriminate, wasteful
use next summer cannot be met."
Gamma Globulin is a protein in the blood that carries anti
bodies against diseases. When polio virus attacks, the body creates
antibodies to fight it. Injections of Gamma Globulin add more anti
bodies to fight the three types of polio virus that can cause human
. Ike Campaigns In Harlem
EN ROUTE WITH EISENHOWER Dwight Eisenhower carried
his campaign into Negro Harlem for the first time. "I do not intend
to bring before you or before America an evil tongue," he said.
"An evil tongue is found only in disappointed men. I'm no medicine
man. I don't have all the answers."
In an address for the New York Herald Tribune's annual forum,
the Republican nominee listed four great economic problems facing
the free world.. These are: (1) Re-establishing the economies of
Japan and West Germany. (2) Finding a permanent solution to
Europe's continuing inability to earn enough dollars. (3) Feeding
the high per centage of the world's peoples who are undernourished,
and (4) Relieving the economic tensions in areas such as the Middle
Stevenson Visits Notre Dame
EN ROUTE WITH STEVENSON Gov. Adlai Stevenson accused
Republicans who have opposed Democratic social and economic pro
grams of playing into the hands of Communism. In an address at
Notre Dame University, he described Communism as a "disease" for
which the only cure is "social justice" for all people.
To fight Communist aggression, Stevenson said, "we can keep
our heads and our tempers, and we can calmly consider what courses
are open to us. War provides no answer even though we must be
eternally ready to meet force with force. We must insist upon our
principles and we must never compromise those."
Are In Degree
The real story of the 1952 presi
dential campaign is the "astonish
ing area of philosophical agree
ment" beween General Eisenhower
and Governor Stevenson.
Robert Lucas editor of the edi
torial page of the Denver Post, told
this to 75 University journalism
students Wednesday afternoon in
the first of a series of monthly
addresses Sponsored by the School
of Journalism on problems in con
"Running through the
speeches of the Democratic and
Republican candidates," he said,
"are parallel lines, an indication
of their personalities."
Despite Ike's criticisms of the
foreign policy in Asia, he said the
general still remains essentially a
champion of the so-called Demo
He added that Stevenson has de
livered some very "Republican
like" statements, Lucas said, par
ticularly on domestic matters.
The main points of disagree
ment of the two men, he said, are
on degree, technique, timing and
concentration of authority.

nesday evening in the Union Ballroom.
Dell, independent candidate for
long term senator, called attention
to the fact that war needs are
answered without question while
the necessary items for peace are
often not provided.
The United States will be
forced to take a new stand in its
foreign policy if we are to put an
end to the errors that have taken
place, Dell added.
The problem of prisoner ex
change should be settled quickly,
even if we are forced to give up
our plan of voluntary exchange,

rea, Dell emphasized.
Iran and Germany were listed
as possible trouble spots in fu
ture times. He said that the United
Nations should take definite posi
tive action to stop outbreaks be
fore they occur in these and other
international "hot spots."
As a long time Nebraska farmer,
Dell suggested a farm program
that would include a parity plan
for farm products. He did not list
a certain percentage partly, but
said that the figures should be a
fair and honest one.
He also suggested a two-point
surplus program. He noted that
there would always be over-production
because farmers attempt
to produce maximum crops. He
suggested a program that would
control production or larm pro
ducts, especially highly perishable
ones. The farm program would
also employ distribution rather
than destruction of surplus perish
