Transcript more usual. Dr. "are HEPATITIS EASILY AVERTED by Kathy Pill There is "obviouslya(hepatitis) scare in Arlington, indicates Dr. Doyle K. Lansford, M.D., city health officer. "There is no real way to stop it except for people to be aware, very careful and not give it an opportunity to spread," he told the Arlington Urbanite Friday afternoon. "We very definitely have (hepatitus cases) than Lansford said the cases pretty evenly distributed across the town," with about two victims per public school and eight at the University of Texas at Arlington. He said persons may not realize they have the disease until 10 days after they are infected, and it would be wise to avoid public eating places and restrooms. He noted the spread of hepatitus is not caused directly by the restaurants or public restrooms, but are just places where many people come in contact with one another. ;: In, an,attempt to.inform the pub- I He atyfyt^the die lift abojiifthe disease, the1 Arlington Branch lVledica 1 "Society has released the following information: Infectious hepatitus is a disease of the liver, and there are two strains of it. Virus A. which is the type seen in the community at this time, is the more contagious form spread by direct contact with infected individuals or from contaminated food or water containing the virus. Virus B, the more serious type, is usually spread by the parenteral (injection) route, but is mildly contagious by the oral route as well. Since Virus A is the more contagious of the two, children and young adults seem to be the main ; victims of the current disease. They should be urged to wash their hands after using the toilet and not to eat or drink after another person. However, this type of infection is a mild illness and rarely has a serious outcome. Gamma globulin injections, which are readily available, are effective in modifying the course of this type of hepatitus. While mere is no treatment for hepatitis once it is contracted, the person infected should get adequate rest, eat a nourishing diet and restrict activity only as necessary. The early symptoms of infectious hepatitis are nondescript, and cannot be identified from other viral diseases usually present in the community. Later stages of the disease include a nausea, loss of taste for cigarettes and loss of appetite, dark - colored urine, light-colored stools and the typical yellow discoloration of the eyes. Anyone having direct contact with an infected individual, i.e. eating in the same place or using the same restroom, should consult their physicians for advice regarding gamma globulin. If a person appears to be ill one should be careful about touching them. If direct contact is necessary, hands should be washed carefully before doing any other activites. Good hand-washing techniques is a good preventative against infection as well as isolating eat- ing and drinking utensils and bed and bath linens for special cleaning. Anyone who feels ill should not go to school or work or appear in public places. One may be inadvertantly passing the illness on to someone else. If illness persists or symptoms typical of infectious hepatitis appear, a physician should be contacted for furthur advise. Local physicians are cooperating with city health officials to determine if any sources of infection exist in the community. In dividual cooperation is necces- sary to contain this recent outbreak. The Arlington Urbanite is working with the Arlington Branch Medical Society to inform the public about infectious hepatitis. Tho- CORRECTION DELETE ABOVE TWO LINES lie about infectious hepatitis.

SEAGULL REVIEW Jonathan Livingston Seagull, a thin 93-page book by Richard Bach, has been praised and attacked by Christian churches all over the world. What is in this short, beautiful story that has caused such a controversy? The Christian Science Monitor JUST MARION & LYNN 817 FAIRVIEW (JUST OFF MONTROSE) HOUSTON, TEX. where the Boys 8, Girls meet" BEER • SET-UPS S'WINE •GOOD MUSIC W$% •DANCING f%£| • pool" yw1|> OPEN MON - SAT 4 pm - 2 am SUN 2 pm - 2 am 528-9110 == acclaimed it aS the 1^71 Book; Of The Year, yet later refused to carry ads for it. Christian leaders have compared Jonathan to Christ and His disciples, while others have denounced Jonathan for the sin of pride. Public leaders have encouraged their aides and associates to read this book, while some church schools have banned it from their libraries. Why? Whai has caused this to happen? The May, 1973 edition of Moody Monthly has very calmly attacked the book by trying to discredit its author. The Moody Monthly article, written by Oliver W. Price, points out that Mr. Bach insists the story of Jonathan was revealed to him by a mysterious voice. Mr. Price then proceeds to make fun of this theory. The article ends with this paragraph: "Therefore, before you believe in J. L. Seagull and voices from another world, you might want to get out your Bible and check their I.D." Well, I will go one step further: Before you believe in Mr. Oliver Price and those Christians who fear that Jesus might lose His divinity, you might want to get out your copy of Jonathan Livingston Seagull and check their motives. That someone who professes the Christian faith can be threatened by Jonathan indicates that such a person does not have much faith in the teachings of Christ. And to launch a personal attack on Mr. Bach to discredit the story of Jonathan seems to be^vervd^ spicable tactic. Mr. Bach was lucky when he wrote Jonathan and will probably never be as successful again. But let's look at the story itself. The theme is very simple and beautiful. Jonathan simply points out that we form our own barriers, and that individuality is more important, though more painful, than conformity. There is a plea from Jonathan to all of us to strive to reach our full potential and not to be held back by society's opinion. Is that not what we at MCC are doing? We could spend hours discussing the various ideas which appear in Jonathan -- the reincarnation and the meaning of the Son of the Great Seagull, among others -- but why should we? Can we not accept the story of Jonathan as the plea for individual perfection and love that it is? Is it beyond us to believe that we all have a right to develop to our full potential? Or are we still being held back by what society finds "acceptable"? If you have not read Jonathan Livingston Seagull, I recommend it. If you have read it, give a copy to a loved one. It makes a beautiful gift. After eading it, form your own opinions, and remember that Jonathan defends the right of individuals to hold personal opinions which have not been dictated by society. -- Ken Cyr of AURA Page 19
