Deputy Carr said he was not: aware of a written or unwritten policies concerning the hand- cuffing of prisoners.

Don't Delay Immunization Of Children Many people wait until their children are ready to enter school before they begin the children's immunization series. Are you or your friends among this group? If you are, you're exposing your child to five or six years of Dolly Madison 4.H Club To Study Energ Conse00ion For the next ten weeks the Dolly Madison 4-H Club will study a series of articles on energy conservation. This week will feature solar energy. Every day we hoar more and more about solar energy, and every day its becoming more efficient and more eo .nical. Each year the sun ba. ,,s the earth with 25 times the total energy that is locked in all the planet's known reserve of coal, oil and natural gas. One square metre of land exposed to direct sunlight receives the energy equal to about one horsepower. Three hundred square metres of land receives enough energy, when converted to meet the electrical power requirement of typical one-family residence. If a desert 150 miles square had reasonably efficient solar energy equipment it could supply all the energy required by a country similar to the United States. A study of a solar heated home in Massachusetts showed a savings of $260 dollars per year. The Boston area is not a par- ticularly favorable location for solar heating. Therefore well- designed solar-heating units would repay their energy in- vestment in an even shorter time in most of the rest of the country. In March 1975 the materials for a solar heating system cost $2,040 and todaythe price is even less. The collector costs the most, and the equipment such as pumps, storage tank, and controls make up the rest of the cost. Hello, stranger.

What's so important about getting vac- cinations early and completing them on schedule? What diseases should a child receive immunizations against? A child should receive im- munizations against polio, measles, mumps, rubella (German Measles), diptheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough). Mumps is one of the leading causes of deafness in children. Yes. The most common complications of mumps are those associated with the ner- vous system. Meningitis is one of those complications.

Display Cases In Charles Town Library are in- teresting to see and read this month. They were arranged by W. B. "Bill" Stuck. Bill has been collecting old medical pam- phlets and almanacs for over 50 years. He says that many of the old remedy books have some weird formulas and claim to cure just about every ailment known. Most of the remedies of that time were labeled as cures and many were guaranteed to cure, but now for some years it has been against the law to make such claims. An example is one of the remedies taken from Peoples Reference Book 1892: Toad Ointment- Take four or five large-sized toads, heat them on the heads, to render them insensible to pain, then im- mediately drop them in boiling water, and cook them until very tender. Take them out, and boil the water, until it is reduced to one-half pint, and add one pound of freshly churned, unsalted butter, and simmer together. At last add two ounces of tincture of arnica. The above ointment is regarded as of great value in the curing of lame backs, and also is an excellent remedy for sprains, strains, and sore lips. All children can now make their summer library reading plans. The library is ready to help everyone have a pleasant reading summer.

Measles can result in complications that include ear infections, pneumonia, deafness, blindness and convulsive disorders or other forms of brain disease. It also causes mental retardation. Measles (rubeola) is a serious disease of children, and it is sometimes called "hard", "red", "7-day" or "old- fashioned" measles. German measles (rubella). is a mild, three-day infection that seldom leads to complications in children. The best way of protecting a pregnant woman and her unborn child is preventing their ex- posure to the disease. The best way to prevent exposure is to control the disease by vac- cinating children. The common belief that mumps is not dangerous to girls or women  a myth. Polio is still a problem. Children still get polio, and they still die from it. Pertussis or whooping cough commonly strikes during in- fancy. Early immunization of an infant is recommended because of the severe complications and high mortality rate for this age group.
