Under the name "Lenny Frazier", typhoid carrier Leonard Forbes obtains a job on Hank Dooley's farm. When Dooley's young daughter dies of the disease, the Health Department investigates. Forbes knows that he is in violation of the registration requirements for typhoid carriers, so he flees with his wife Helen. Dan Mathews learns of Forbes' background and orders an intensive search. Helen learns of the Highway Patrol's involvement and convinces Forbes that he needs to turn himself in and face the grief-stricken (and vengeful) Hank Dooley. Dan and Officer Larrabee hear of the Forbes' plans and arrive at the Dooley farm just as the distraught father is attempting to extract armed revenge for his daughter's death. Written by Sam Spear

In a farming community a young girls comes down with typhoid fever. Lenny Frazier, registered in Wisconsin as a typhoid carrier flees with his wife from that state because he was tired of all the restrictions that the registration put on him. Unfortunately, the young girl dies and her father, Mr. Dooley, threatens to kill Lenny if it was he who gave his little girl typhoid. The most interesting character in this episode is Lenny's wife Helen. She stops Lenny from going into a restaurant as he is not suppose to go into such public places. In the end, she convinces Lenny that he has a social responsibility to the greater community and not just to himself. Lenny decides to return to the Dooley farm so that he can tell Mr. Dooley how sorry he is - a decision with potentially disastrous results. This episode is notable for its interesting theme.
