Ancient Disease Claims One Life - STAMFORD, Dec. 13 (AP) - An ancient disease, typhus fever, but so rare in West Texas that even pioneer physicians here cannot recall another fatality, today took the life of a Jones county farmer, W. B. Amerson, 63. He died in his home in the Stamford area. --
Mr. Amerson became ill 18 days ago. Doctors said it was probable he was bitten by a flea transmitting the fever from a rat. His death will hasten preventive measure in Jones county, where typhus made its appearance about three months ago, after the beginning of an influx of itinerant farm labor, and has made considerable headway. A rat extermination campaign on a large scale will be conducted under direction of county health authorities, assisted by the United States biological survey, which has a representative already in the county. --
Health authorities estimated today there are 25 cases in the general Stamford area. Latest case diagnosed yesterday, was on a farm in Haskell county six miles north of this city. All cases have been mild to date except that of Mr. Amerson.
