Aumann, Charles (1955) 

Polio Victim says He’ll ‘Be Okay’ shortly - Charles Aumann, 12, returns home here Saturday morning; no Paralysis -

"I’ll be okay in a couple of weeks!"  That was the news Charles Aumann, 12, imparted over the telephone Satruday when a Press reporter called to check on his condition.  

Charles was Clark County’s first - and to date, only - Polio victim this season. He was taken to the Hospital, Monday, August 1, and was back home Saturday morning, August 6. 

The good news went farther than that: Charles has no paralysis.  He still had a little stiffness in some neck and shoulder muscles; but that will be dissipated by the use of hot packs.
