Freedmen's Reports
10th Epidemic Death;
Six Babies Still III
The 10th Infant death due to!
diarrhea was reported at Freed
men’s Hospital today, pointing up
the need for a new and larger hos
pital which the Federal Security
Administration will seek in 1949.
One other baby was reported in!
a critical condition at the hospital,
which was swept by the epidemic
last month. Under the plan of re
leasing all babies as soon as pos
sible. only six remain at Freedmen's
Dow and all are ill.
Watson B Miller. Federal secur
ity administrator, said the epidemic
emphasized the need for an entirely;
new hospital.
"We have been working wdth the
Bureau of the Budget closely for
the past three years and have the
understanding that it will approve
funds for a new hospital after the
veterans' needs are relieved.”
Mr Miller said he hoped to ask
Congress for a hospital that would
cost ”2 or 3 million dollars" and
would be “the best of its kind in
the world."
Tomorrow afternoon Mr. Miller
will confer with Dr. James L. Hall,
superintendent of Freedmen's, and!
with Dr. Otis Anderson, head of the!
United States Public Health Serv-!
ire s hospital division with the view
to preventing recurrence of the dis
ease
Thus far physicians have been un
able to isolate an organism or virus
responsible for the epidemic Mr.
Miller said it was doubtful whether
the responsibility ever would be
placed.
