Raleigh, May 2i.- There is no epi.
demie of infantile paralysis in the
State, so that parents have nothing
to become alarmed over, Dr. Carl Y.
Reynolds, executive secretary of the
State Board of Health said here to
day in commenting on the infantile
paralysis sit nation over North Cart*-
“While it is true that we have had
more than the usual number of cases
of infantile para.vsis reported so tar
tiiis month, most of them are from
widely separated sections of the State,
so that there cannot possibly be any
thing like an epidemic,” Dr. Reynolds
said. "Consequently there fs nothing
to cause any alarm among parents.
We would tulvise them, however, to
exerreise tin* usual precautions and to
watch their children carefully, espe
cially if they develop head colds or
start running temperatures.”

So far only eleven cases of infan
tile paralysis'have ‘been repot ted this
month, according to Dr. J. C. Knox,
epidemiologist with the State Board
of Health, and there has been only
one death. Only one new case had
been reported up to this morning, al
though three new cases were reported
1 Wednesday. The one death so far was
that of Hugh Lowe, Jr., seven years
old, of Clinton, who died In a Wil
mington hospital Tuesday night. The
one new case reported yesterday was
Luther Nichols, three-year-old white
child in Greenville, Pitt county.
There have been .some four or five
cases either in or near Raleigh within
the last two weeks, with the result
that the health authorities here have
closed the summer scohols and vaca
tion Bible sehools and have urged par
ents to keep their children away from
Sunday school and all gatherings in
order to prevent any possible spread
of the dtseease. There have been no
new cases here for several days and
most of the doctors here now think
all danger of an epidemic has passed.

The healing of the commissioners
today opened with the reading of the
bill 'by Chairman Watkins. Represen
tative O. S. Falkner, who voted in
the State House for Vance to he in
cluded in the bill allowing the com.
missioners to order the election, spoke
briefly at the hearing and explained
Unless the election Is stopped toy

first time a straight out liquor elec

Vance, along with all the other coun
ties in the State, voted in May, 1908,
on whether or not the State should
have prohibition, which won.
Following is the text in full of the
protest against ordering an election in
Vance county on the setting up of a
county liquor store as presented to
the Vance Board of County Commis
sioners by J. H. Bridgets:
To the Board of County Commission
ers of Vance County*:
In behalf of our citizens who have
sor ecently expressed themselves as
opposed to legalizing the sale of
liquor, or doing anything that will in
crease its use, I respectfully ask you
to exercise the discretion contained in
the recent act to set up alcoholic con
trol boards, and not to order the eleo
tion provided for therein as useless
and unnecessary expense.
In addition to the above, I cite you
the following legal reasons for not
ordering the election:
1. You have no power' to spend
money except for necessary expense. I

2. The act violates Article I, Section
7. North Carolina Constitution, re
quiring uniformity in the laws, and
