Two Die of Polio; Ogden Youth and Kaysville Woman

Polio claimed a Kaysville mother of three and a 15-year-old Ogden boy yesterday at Ogden's St. Benedict's Hospital. The victims were Mrs. Noall Frank (Mae Markham) Hyde, 39, 798 N. Main St., Kaysville, and Glen Hancock, 15, son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond F. Hancock, 2205 Quincy Ave.

Polio was the indirect cause of death for Mrs. Hyde, who was in the polio ward at St. Benedict's when fatally stricken by a blood clot, according to her. physician.

Mrs. Hyde, was admitted to the hospital one week earlier, Sunday Aug. 19; and.had been placed
in an iron lung

The Hancock youngster died apparently after four days of illness that began on a family vacation trip in West Yellowstone . |

Close relatives said the youngster first became sick with a sore throat and upset stomach last Thursday at the family's West Yellowstone cabin.

After sleeping well that night, he ate a good breakfast Friday morning then again became quite ill. His family left for Ogden. Part of the way home he seemed improved, but became increasingly sick later.

He was rushed to the hospital Saturday morning and placed in an iron lung after the family physician diagnosed his illness as polio. At first it was thought the youngster was suffering from a sunstroke.

One of the youngster's three brothers, Don, 13, is presently under observation for polio because of a slight sore throat. The Hancock residence is under quarantine until the exact nature of his illness is diaganosed.

The two Ogden deaths doubled the year's polio fatalities and state health authorities this morning renewed their appeal for vaccinations.

"Children must have the vacine to have the benefits from it" said Dr. A. A. Jenkins, state director of disease preventative services.

"Anything that is 75 percent effective against paralytic polio surely is worth receiving. We urge all parents to have their children vaccinated promptly."

Dr. Jenkins said reports indicate the Salk antipolio vaccine, which has been in use little more than a year is 75 per cent effective.

Asked whether he felt this year's outbreak of polio might have been more sever without the wide-spread use of serum, Dr. Jenkins replied:

"That's something that is difficult to prove. Up to early in August there had been 13 children who had received the vaccine who developed polio. But none of these children had had the prescribed series of injections. Despite that, the majority of their cases were not too severe.

Dr. Jenkins said the State Health Department recommends continuance of the vaccination program throughout the summer.

The Salk serum is provided free for all persons under 20 and for all pregnant women. The free serum is available from physicians who may charge a fee for injecting it.

So far this year 14 people have been or re under treatment at St. Benedict's Hospital for polio.

Seven children are now recuperating from polio at the hospital. All are reported doing fine. One woman, Mrs. Frank Austin, 1651 Swain St. is still in a respiarator, but is reportedly doing all right.
