WARNING OUT TO 1
HANDLE RABBITS
CAREFULLY
Advised Hunters To Shoot Only
The More Frisky Rabbits.
Lethargy Denotes Disease
“Handle the wild rabbit with care,”
Dr. R. H. Riley, Director of the State
Department of Health, warns those
who hunt and trap the animals or
prepare them for the table. “The cot
tontails are not always as harmless ;
as they look, for some of them are
infected with tularemia. This seri-j
ous disease, which is also known as!
rabbit fever, usually is acquired by
human beings through contact with
infected rabbits or with the infected
insects that spread it from animal o!
animal.
“Last year the record for this dis
ease was good. Only 16 residents of
Maryland are known to have contract
ed the disease, 15 residents of the
counties and 1 Baltimorean. No resi
dents of the State are known to have
died of tularemia in 1941.
“This good record, however, should
not give the feeling that rabbit fever
has become rare and that precautions
L are no longer necessary/’ Dr. Riley
emphasises. “Although only a small
proportion of the rabbits running wild
in the Maryland woods are believed to
be infected, you should be careful.
Remember that the rabbit you are
handling may be one of the compara
tively few that are infected and can
transmit the disease.
“If you go hunting, shoot only the
frisky rabbits that run away from
you. This is not only the more sport
ing practice, but the safer one; be
cause a hare without the energy to
scamper away is likely to be a sick
one that can give tularemia to those
who handle him.
“After the wild rabbit has been
shot or trapped, it is necessary to
handle the animal and the uncooked
meat cautiously, using rubber gloves
rather than your bare hands. This
is especially important if there is any
ut or scratch, even a small one, on
your hand. Keep your hands away
from your face, mouth and eyes and
wash your hands thoroughly as soon
as you finish preparing the game.
All refuse and fur, as well as any
paper that has come in contact with
the rabbit, should be burned.
“As last safeguard, cook the meat
thoroughly to destroy any disease
producing germs that may be pres
ent. This means that you should
•ook at boiling temperature for at
least twenty minutes before cooking
to your individual taste.”
AMERICANS
PRESS GRATITUDE
FOR LEADERSHIP
No matter how grave the situation;
■lay appear to be, there is always a
light —hope and faith alter all cir
cumstances, Thanksgiving is an ex- 1
pression of soul, and dispels all hard
ships.
In 1620 the Pilgrims who landed on
the New England coast were sustained i
by their trust in God, and were able
to lay the foundation of free religion
and worship.
In the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln
upheld his trust and faith in preserv- j
ing the unity and victory for our
country. Again today our loved ones
—on land, sea, or in the air—are bat
tling the foes of freedom, and on this
Thanksgiving Day we put our trust
in God, and pray for their protection,
and that barbarism cannot throw the
world back into slavery of the dark
ages. The world will not tolerate
the challenge of brutal dictatorship.
Now, more than ever, Americans
express gratitude for leadership, for
judgment and wisdom in our war ef
forts, for divine guidance in all offi
ces of war production, for unity for an
all-out war and a permanent peace.
President Roosevelt's proclamation
to observe Thanksgiving and New
Year’s Day as days of prayer is wel
come. Let us do even better and,
make every day a day of prayer and
thanksgiving. Let us raise our vision
to include a world wide brotherhood of
abundance with all swords,
beaten into plowshares.
