Briggs, Danville resident and former Yell County Circuit Clerk, was stricken with polio last week and is now a patient at St Vincent's Hospital in Little Rock. Briggs was taken to the hospital in Little Rock last Wednesday paralyzed from the waist down. Doctors at first believed that a rupture disk was causing the paralysis, but Saturday when his breathing became difficult and his temperature continued to rise, it was definitely established as polio. Briggs passed the crisis early Sunday morning after he had temporarily been placed in an iron lung. His fever broke and breathing became easier after that time. The exact extent of the paralysis will not be known for several days, but he is not paralyzed above the waist. Briggs, who is now an employee of the Arkansas Power & Light Co. was Yell County Chairman of the March of Dimes drive for polio for three years.
