Smallpox scare
by Morris A. Bealle  (Book: The Drug Story)

Bringing the subject down almost to date, the rawest publicity stunt pulled
by public relations firms for the biologicals manufacturing business was in
New York City in Feb. and March of 1947.

On Feb. 25, Eugene LeBar, a Mexico City importer took a bus to New York
City. On March 10th he died in one of the city hospitals. The diagnosis was
"hemorrhagic bronchitis". Somewhere between that date and April 10th, the
Rockefeller public relations firm, recently assigned to the American Medical
Association because the upward spiral of drug trust profits wasn't spiraling
upward fast enough, had a brilliant idea.

Senor LeBar, they reasoned, during his long trip had been in the same
atmosphere with thousands of people from El Paso to New York. Why not drum
up a SMALLPOX SCARE all over the United States and make ten million more
dollars filling the nation's blood stream with cow pus and horse filth.

With New York's publicity-loving Mayer, Wm. O'Dwyer, as the spearhead, this
is exactly what they did. The bronchitis diagnosis was changed to one of
smallpox 30 days after Senor LeBar's demise. Mayor O'Dwyer ordered everyone
in New York vaccinated, although HE HAD NO MORE POWER TO DO THIS than
Mahatma Gandhi had.

The associated Press put the story on its wires in a big way, its "science"
editor going all out to exploit this latest in "science". Of course, that
didn't make AP Director Arthur Hays Sulzberger of the Rockefeller foundation
mad with his editors.

All the dopes and dupes in New York formed long lines in front of every
police station and every doctor's office and had five years lopped off the
other end of their lives. Newspapers and health departments all over the
country, following the O'Dwyer publicity spread the serum HOAX and exhorted
their own dupes to "get vaccinated". Thousands upon thousands of them did.
One public relations firm for the drug trust planted a fake story that Pres.
Truman had himself vaccinated before coming to New York to address a
newspaper convention. Although this was denied by the White House, the
denial, as usual, never caught up with the lie.

The police station vaccinations cost the taxpayers of New York City $850,000
(remember this is 1947) and those who went to private doctors, even more.
The Drug Trust undoubtedly added ten to fifteen million dollars to its 1947

We have some later statistics on the Phillippine Smallpox Front. In the
years 1918, 1919 and 1920, after 20 years of compulsory vaccination, the
greatest smallpox epidemic in Phillippine history occurred, with 162,503
cases and 71,455 deaths.

In the province of Rizal, which surrounds Manila where the representatives
of the vaccine companies had headquarters, they had a death rate of 67.24
per 100. This was three and a half times the death rate shown in any part of
the archipelago before vaccination came to the Phillippines.

Broken down for 1918 the report shows that 3,285,376 Filipinos were
vaccinated, 47,369 came down with smallpox, 16,477 died. In191 9they more
than doubled each operation which would seem to prove this point. The number
of vaccinations totalled 7,670,252, the number of cases of smallpox 65,180
and the number of deaths, 44,408.

To quote Dr. Harry R. Bybee, of Norfolk, Va., pres. of the National
Chiropractic Asoc., he said: "My honest opinion is that vaccination is the
cause of more disease and suffering than anything I could name. I believe
that such diseases as cancer, syphillis, cold sores and many other disease
conditions are the direct results of vaccination Yet, in the state of
Virginia and many other states, parents are compelled to submit their
children to this procedure while the medical pofession not only receives its
pay for this unwanted service, but makes splendid and profitable patients
for the future.

Dr. Herbert Snow, the senior surgeon of the Cancer Hospital in London said:
"Of recent years many men and women in the prime of life have dropped dead
suddenly, often after attending a wedding feast or banquet. I am convinced
that some 80% of these deaths are caused by the inoculations or vaccinations
they have undergone. These are well known to cause grave and permanent
disease to the heart. The coroner always hushes it up with "Natural Causes".
Dr. W. B. Clarke of Indianapolis: "Cancer was practically unknown until
cowpox vaccination began to be introduced. I have had to do with at least
200 cases of cancer, and I NEVER SAW A CASE OF CANCER IN AN

Dr. J.M. Peebles of San Diego , at the turn of the century, said in his
book, "The vaccination practice, pushed to the front on all occasions by the
medical profession and through political connivance made compulsory by the
state, has not only become the chief menace and greatest danger to the
health of the rising generation, but likewise the crowning outrage upon the
personal liberty of the American citizen. The fee-hunting doctors are
incessantly hounding the legislatures for more stringent compulsory
enactments by which they will be enable to inflict and repeat this degrading
rite upon defenseless people for the enhancement of their revenues.
Compulsory vaccination, poisoning the crimson currents of the human system
with brute-extracted lymph under the strange infatuation that it would
prevent smallpox, was one of the darkest blots that disfigured the last
century. The majority of doctors are behind the times. They may have
diplomas, but they are laggards. They are not students. Many of them prefer
the golf course to the postgraduate course, the clubroom to the medical
laboratory, the cigar to the clinic.

Dr. Peebles, "It is admitted that prevention is preferable to cure, and
there is not an intelligent medical practitioner in the land who will
unqualifiedly risk his reputation upon the statement that vaccination is a
positive prevention of smallpox. Volumes of statistics, as well as the
highest medical science in the U.S., Canada, England the Continent would be
directly against. him. The most that any physician of good standing now
contends is that vaccination modifies the disease. This is stoutly denied.
On the contrary it aggravates the disease as there are two poisons now in
the system instead of one for nature to contend against. It is sanitation,
diet, pure air, calmness of mind, confidence and cleanliness that modify the
smallpox. Al of these modifiers are infinitely cheaper, safer and in every
way preferable to cowpox poison which, if it does not kill, often marks,
maims and sows the seeds of future eczema, tumors, ulcers, carbuncles,
cancer and leprosy.We have at our command testimonies, scores of
testimonies, proving beyond any possible doubt that men unvaccinated have
nursed smallpox patients in hospitals at different times, for years, and
never took the disease. On the other hand we have, with dates and figures,
the most positive proof that those who have been vaccinated, vaccinated two
and three times, took the disease when exposed and died therefrom. These
facts are undeniable."

A.M. Ross, M.D., seems to have summed up briefly, succinctly and
unanswerably (by the vaccine manufacturers and vendors) the cause of
smallpox, which shows that adding fuel to flames will not put out the fire.
Dr. Ross Said: "Wherever the streets are narrow, the lanes and courts
filthy, where cesspits abound and filth is allowed to accumulate and
ferment, where the weak, intemperate and unclean congregate together, and
where the children are ill-fed and badly clothed, there smallpox makes its
home and riots in filth and death.
