Albany, Aug. 14. No treatment so

who has been making a special study

of medical ofHoera under the auspices
of the state department of health. Dr
Flexner among other things gave -the
following views In discussing Infantile
The disease Is still alive over
considerable portion of the state.
Our greatest concern Is to determine
how nnd under what circumstances
the disease is spread.
There Is no trentment so far ns we
know which can lo regarded as spec-
ille or even effectlvo.
It Is easily transmitted from nn!
mala to man and Is more fatal In ani
mals than In man. One attack, how
ver light, appears to establish an Im
inunlty against a second attack. This
Is du to a specific micro-organism

Until we can succeed In determining
how this disease Is transmitted we
cannot expect to accomplish Its pre-
Though paralysis Is present In most
all -ases there are cases with no
aralysls. Such cases are spoken of
as abortive, and It Is quite likely that
they are the source of frequent exten
sion of the disease even fatal cases
rising from abortive cases.
The period of Incubation appears
to be from three to thirty-three days.
Four weeks 1 supposed to be the pe
riod of Infectiousness of the disease.
fter which It Is not thought that In
fection emanates from tho case.
The course of entrance of the germs

Hie upper air passages, especially the
It would also appear that the most
irobnble means of exit of this germ Is
through the nose nnd throat. It Is
therefore very Important thnt the dls-
harges from the nose and throat of
nses suffering from Infantile parnly
Is be properly destroyed.
Dr. Flexner appeals to the medical
fficers and to the health officers of;
the state to study In detail each case
omlnir under their observation. He
remises assistance nnd co-operntlon
from the Rockefeller Institute of Med
'cal Research whenever and wherever
the snmo Is possible.
During the year 1910, 322 cases of
nfantlle paralysis In forty-nine eoun-
les were reported to the state depart
ment of. health. This shows a wide
llstrlbutlon of the disease, with no
pparent relation to any central focus.
The disease, "however, has been most
orevalent In certain rntlier definitely

bordering- nn the St. Lawrence river
and In the area bounded on the north
by Lake Ontario, south hy Pennsyl-
