Services Fight
Dread Malaria
Aided by Health Board,-
They Battle Foe Called
As Dangerous as Axis.
WASHINGTON .-The army and the
navy. backed by the U. S. Public
Health service. have been fighting
an unsung war against’ an enemy
which could defeat our troops with
out flring a single shot and could
use our own airplanes for a success
ful invasion of our shores.
The enemy, which military men
declare can be as great an adver
sary as the Japanese and the Get
mans, is malaria.
So far, the army and navy, in the
field, have been fighting a great
holding action against the malady.
while the health agency guards our
coast against malaria-bearing mos
quitos coming in by airplane.
A holding action is all it can be.
for, while science knows how to re
duce the possibility of malaria and
how to treat it once it is contracted,
it does not yet possess the weapon
necessary for total defeat—a vac
cine that will prevpnt it.
Push Tests for Weapon.
However, scientists in every cor
ner of the United States and in many
tropical outposts. working for the
army and navy through the nation.-
al research council, are hunting for
the "secret weapon” that will de
feat malaria. They are experiment
ing, testing. observing, making use
of hundreds upon hundreds of herbs,
plants and chemicals; The magic
field of sulfa drugs is being exam
ined. -‘
So far they have nothing to re
port. But some day, if and when they
discover an anti-malaria vaccine,
they will have won a great victory,
for malaria, while it does not have
the dread connotations of smallpox
and some of the other diseases al
ready conquered by science, is a
great reaper of human life.
All the things men know about
malaria and every means of com
bating it are being employed by the
army and navy to protect the men
who are fighting in some of the
world's worst malarial spots. On
the borne front the Public Health
service, through its Foreign Quaro
antine division, is "decontaminat
ing” the planes that come back
from the malarial areas. '
How Disease ls Spread.
The anopheline mosquito is the
cause of malaria. The mosquito first
must bite an infected person; then.
using its bill likes poisoned hypo
dermic needle, it spreads the disease
to all whom it can bite.
When malaria strikes a person he
becomes weak, shaky, subject “to
chills and fever. A sailor or a sol
dier suflering from malaria obvi
ously is no good as a fighting man.
Certain prophylaxis—namely, qui
nine (supply sources of which are
now in the hands of the Japanese)
and atabrine (a coal tar derivative
which the United States is making
in huge quantities)-—wi-ll control it
and, administered in vast doses un
der medical supervision, eventually
will cure or check it. Another chem
ical agént, plasmochin, will kill the
gametacytes, the reproductive form
of the malaria parasite. , '
There is plenty of malaria in the
United States. particularly the south
ern parts, but the._ Public Health
service keeps its .vigil just the same.
So 400 uniformed quarantine of
ficers and sanitary inspectors stand
guard today at airports where planes
from overseas come in. They see
to it that planes, which already have
been sprayed with chemicals lethal
to mosquitos, are sprayed again.
Passengers receive medical exami
nations; those with malaria are per
mitted to enter the country, but they
must go straight to hospitals and
stay there until they are no longer
sources of infection.
Family Food Costs Rise
$4 a quth Over 1942
WASHINGTON. —An average
American hbusewife with four
mouths to feed had to spend $36 to
set her table last month. $4 more
than in 1942, department of agricul
ture statistics disclosed.
The farmer is getting some of the
difference. the department said, but
not enough to' compensate him for
his own increased costs.
The figures showed that the farm
er gets about S2O of the $36, which
is about $2 more than last year—or
57 cents out of the food dollar. But
the farmer is paying higher taxes,
higher labor and machinery costs
now. and he pockets less of the 57
cents than he did of the 48 cents he
got in 1942.
Nor is it the grocer who is making
a big profit. For the harassed gro
cer is operating under price ceilings
controlling margins of profit on most
items. Food processors, carriers,
wholesalers and retailers are operat
ing at a lower margin of profit than
ever before, according to the agri
cultural department figures.
All Soldier Needs
Now Is Right Rank
FORT EUSTIS, VA.—-—Should he
ever attain that degree of rank,
one Fort Eustis soldier would be
a double captain, for already his
signature is Private Berwick Cap
tain. A native of Oberlin, La..
Captain is the smallest trainee in
the battery, standing just an inch
under five feet. but has little dif
ficulty keeping up with big men.
