UnllmdWay A CARD OF THANKS ESTHER D. HEHLE Perhaps you sang a lovely song, Or sat quietly in a chair; Perhaps you sent beautiful flowers If so, we saw them there.

During blood feeding the vi- rus is then injected into the hu- man, where it multiplies and may cause illness. There is no evidence, however, that a person can get the virus from handling live or dead infected birds, but bare-handed contact when handling dead birds should be avoided. Infected mos- quitoes are the primary course for West Nile Virus and caused the re- cent outbreak in the New York City metropolitan area. Ticks, infected with West Nile Virus, have also been found in Asia and Africa. There are precautions that can be taken, Hecker continued, and they include, but are not limited to the following: (A) Eliminate pools of stagnant water where mosqui- toes can breed. Likely spots are abandoned buildings and cellars. Field depressions and marshy land are also excellent breeding places. (B) Be alert for dead birds and re- port an unusual number to the Health Department. (C) Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants when outdoors. (D) Apply an insect repellent to exposed skin. An effec- tive repellent will contain 20%- 35% DEET (N, N-diethyl-meta- toluamide). Higher concentrations of DEET can cause harmful side effects. Also spray clothing with DEET. (E) Stay away from likely mosquito breeding areas. The symptoms of West Nile Vi- rus are generally mild and include fever, headache, body aches, skin rashes and swollen glands. Severe headaches, high fever, neck stiff- ness, stupor ors, convulsions paralysis, and mark more severe "I gave the publishing of stated Chairman cluded that our board | the interests of our takes a proactive must repeat that the this article is should not cause Jefferson Officer, Earl D.
