was elated over the fact that the situation
gives Indications of being under control.
"Only eight new cases have developed In

get beyond our control. The morning
newspapers stated that two new cases had
been dovelopcd there, but these were cases
known for some time, but not mado public.
So virtually no new cases havo developed.

Complaints havo reached tho olllces of
Dr. Samuel G Dixon, Stato Commissioner
of Health, ngalnst the methods pursued by
tho health authorities In Camden with the

made that their methods are so loose as
almost to nullify the effects of the quaran

Philadelphia and Camdev This matter Is
being Investigated thoroughly today.
CAMDEN OFFICIAL AROUSED
Dr. John F. Lcavitt. Camden's health
officer, denied tho statement attributed to
Dr. Samuel G Dixon, Pennsylvania Com
missioner of Health, that tho Camden au
thorities wcro negligently nttendlng to tho
matter of health certificates.
'That statement places us In an awk
ward light." he declared. "And I want to
Hay that the certificates hero are Just nB
good as any Dixon could Issue. His In
ference thnt boys arc celling our certificates
at tho ferries Is untrue. Every person who
receives a certificate Is thoroughly examined
cither by myself or by Dr. W. M. Isznrd.
If Pennsylvania persists In her attitude,
bollcvlng thnt every Stato except herself
Is contaminated, that It Is time for us
over here to operate a quarantine, so that
Pennsylvania can remain truo In her Iso
lation." Physicians here nre nwaltlng with Inter
est definite Information on tho success of
a new treatment administered to sufferers
of Infnntllo paralysis In Now York. This
treatment consists In the Injection of a
serum taken from the bodies of children
who havo""lccn stricken with the disease but
whe havo recovered. It Is used Just as diph
Blood is drawn from a person who has
recovered, and Is allowed to settle. The
scrum, which is a culture of the germs,
forms on' top. Tho problem facing physi
cians who are experimenting with the serum
In New York Is that they have been unable
to find an animal to inoculate with tho
disease for tho purpose of obtaining tho
antitoxin, and not enough blood can bo
drawn from a human being to be of univer
sal practical use, as 10 cubic centimeters
Injected In small doses Is necessary to effect
Dr. Theodore I,e Boutelller, of this city,
who Is an authority on tho disease, said he
If you are a young woman18 to 22 years old, with a
fair schooling, ambitious and earnest, make application

PREDICT JERSEY QUARANTINE.
Medical Inspectors hero predict that Now
Jersey -vlll establish a quarantine within a
short lime similar to the ono In effect In
?hl, State, as the children, plague has
gained much headway In that Stats.
Such an arrangement, It Is thought, may
make the Pennsylvania quarantine more ef
fectha than at present, especially at the
ferries In this city. Information was
brought to Doctor Dixon that the Camden
authorities had Issued one-day certificates
In a wholesale, manner to children coming
Into this city without anything like a thor
It vats Bald that all that was necessary
to procure a certificate was to Btale one's
name, residence nnd age, nnd that nt tho
Camden City Hall tew wore questioned ns
to whether they had been In contact with
tho diseases. It became so easy to obtain
these certificates that several boys procured
a supply and Bold them at tho Camden
With tho exception of this one place,
however, reports from all sections Indlcntcd
that the 1000 Inspectors guarding State
lines were doing cffectlvo work In keeping
children out of thn Stato unless they had a
clean bill of health.
