ADDED TO LIST RALEIGH, June 30. —(£>)— Ten new cases of infantile paralysis were reported today by the State Board of Health, bringing to 126 the number reported during June, and at the same time drastic steps were being taken in infected areas to curb the disease. The Mecklenburg county Health board ordered all children under 15 years of age to remain off the public roads and streets, ordered all Sunday schools to -be closed to children aged 15 and under, and applied the same order to all swimming pools and amusement places. The action was taken unanimous ly by the board and followed a re port of a third case of polio in the county. The order will be enforc ed by the police. With exception of two cases, all cases reported today were in coun ties already infected, centering in the Piedmont and upper Piedmont sections. New cases were reported in Person and Buncombe counties, with the Buncombe case being de scribed as “a contact of a Wilkes case.” Alexander 4, Ashe 8, Burke 15, Cabarrus 3, Caldwell 11 Catawba 40 Gaston 16 Iredell 1, Lee 1, Lin coln 5. Rowan 8, Stanley 2, Union 1. Watauga 2, Wilkes 4, Wilson 1, Alamance 1, Buncombe 1 (contact of Wilkes), Guilford 1, and Person 1. Five deaths in the current out break have been recorded. A num ber of “suspected” cases are un der observation in the immediate ly infected areas and in other coun ties outside the Piedmont. Governor Broughton, meanwhile, pledged his help in curbing the disease and approved the use of three school busses in Catawba county to be used in transporting nurses within the county. Further steps will be taken to provide transportation of health officials when needed, he said. In Gastonia, Dr. Ralph McDon ald. Chairman of the North Caro lina division of the National Fed eration for Combatting Infantile Pararlysis, announced an emer gency program to combat the di sease. Dr. McDonald designated tnree emergency centers for treating the disease; they are; North Carolina Orthopedic hospital in Gastonia, the Emergency hospital establish ed at Hickory, and Charlotte Me mo rial hospital. A state emergency fund is be ing created, he said, to meet the situation. Money for this fund will come from local chapters of the federation in most of the state’s 100 counties. C. H. Crabtree, state field re presentative of the federation, was in Gastonia with Dr. McDonald. They plan to visit all three emer gency centers to complete plans tor checking the epidemic. Dr. Carl V. Reynolds, state health officer, said here that the outbreak of abnormal infection was being stabilized in the Piedmont and upper Piedmont areas. West ern and Eastern North Carolina are free of abnormal infection, he said. He recalled that during the epi demic of 1935. when 675 cases were reported during the year, theh west ern part of the state was heavily infected “and suffered the conseq reported during the year, the west ern section is not in the current epidemic and should not be pen alized “by erroneous references, or terminology.” The public may rest assured,” Dr. Reynolds said, “that it will be kept fully and frankly advised of the sections in which the disease occurs. However, at present the abnormal occurrence of cases has been kept confind to certain Pied mont counties, and it is hoped that it will not spread beyond that area.” EXPERTS TO ASSIST PRODUCE GROWERS RALEIGH, June 30— IIP) —State Department of Agriculture mar keting specialists will assist pro duce growers of mountain coun ties with the marketing of their products during the next three months, R.

Landreth, president of the National Associ ation of Master Plumbers, who spoke of the postwar building op portunities in Wilmington and North Carolina. Landreth also be gan yesterday morning’s program with an address in which he pre dicted a great postwar building boom, saying that over a million and a half homes will be built each year for the next ten years following the end of the war. Presentation of Landreth was made by E. G. Harris of Rich mond, Va., national director. In troduction of Harris was made by John R. Bagwell of Durham. The entire morning portion of yesterday’s program was spent in a closed business meeting, called to order by President C. C.

After reports of committees and officers, the ladies at the conven tion were treated to a boat rid» up the Inland waterway. Landreth began by paying hom age to those who left the asso ciation for war conflict and to ask care be paid to individuals returning from the battlefronts. “Whether or not the soldier was employed by a contractor, if he was a plumbing and heating man and served in the armed forces, he should be given preference in procuring a position.” The leader further pointed out the important role the plumbing and heating industry plays in na tional defense through their co operation and effort in the national program of building camps and ships and its successful fulfill ment of these tasks. Landreth stressed cooperation between city officials and local and state boards of health and pointed out the importance of p’umbing contractors by bringing to attention to the various bodies harmony which is necessary for proper functioning of the groups. He stated that from experience he found throughout cities that one health department functions with more benefits than more than one body. In reviewing work during the past 34 years of the State Asso ciation H. S. Ritchie, of Albe marle, showed the way plumbing and heating contractors have been responsible for plumbing codes now effective throughout the State by which inspections are made of all plumbing. He advocated strengthening of regulations re garding xypnoio lever and other water-bound diseases caused pri marily in drinking water systems.
