Health Board Notes
If Oregon's polio pattern con
tiues to follow trends which the
disease .took in the state in 1943,
Oregon's residents can expect to
count an additional IdO cases d
January 1 1950.
This year's polio incidence In
Oregon bears a striking resem
blance to the 1943 outbreak, ac
cording to the state board of
health. For example, it was point
ed out that the 41st week of 1943
brought on the heaviest infantile
paralysis onslaught of that year,
a total of 33 cases, and 33 cases
also were reported for the 41st
week of 1949. It was the state's
worst polio week of the year and
also its worst since the 4ist ween
of 1943, Dr. Samuel B. Osgood,
state eyidemiologist informed the
Portland office of the National
Foundation for Infantile Paraly-
Dr. Osgood's report to the March
of Dimes agency said that thel
state board is wondering "if 1919
will continue to adhere to thej
pattern of 1943 when a gradual (
decline began after the 41st week
and continued right Into Janu-1
ary." The number of cases re
corded between October 15 and
December 31, 1943 was 150, Dr.

break of cases after this year's
cool weather had set in. Dr. Os
good said he "rather suspected
that more cases of the milder
type are being recognized." He
explained that, due to the widely-spread
nature of this year's
polio attack, there is a greater
familiarity now with abortive
and non-paralytic types of infec
tion than there might have been
at the outset of the season when
it was possible that some milder
cases were thouRht not to be
