A large attendance Is expected
at the Fullerton PTA meeting,
Monday night, Nov. 7th, to hear
attorney Avery Thompson speak
on "Roseburg's Mosquito Men
ace." The reported success of some
Oregon towns in curbing polio
outbreaks, apparently through in
sect spraying by plane, has
aroused the interest of Roseburg
parents, and many individuals
and civic groups have expressed
the hope that a similar spraying
program might be worked out for
the Roseburg area.
Roseburg's growing mosquito
population was a source of great
annoyance to all residents last
summer, and the possibility that
the mosquito and other insects
are camera of infectious dis
eases, including polio, prompted
various women's groups to ask
Mr. Thompson to make an in
vestigation into the problem, in
hopes of finding a permanent so
lution. Mr. Thompson will be in
troduced by Mr. Robert Helli
well, and all Roseburg residents
interested in a mosquito-abatement
program are cordially in
