ALTMAN New York Times Service LONDON Two British re- searchers have developed an experimental vaccine against a common viral disease which LS considered an important cause of mental retardation throughout the world. The vaccine now needs con- tinuation from injections into a larger trial group before it be licensed for routine use. In experiments with medical students the vaccine proved safe no more than a minor muscle ache occurred at the in- jection site and effective be- it stimulated the body's immunologic system to prod- jce the desired protective sub- stances. Dr. Stephen D. Elek and Dr. Harold who developed vaccine at St. George's Hos- said in a recent in- that they hoped the British government's medical research which funded a major portion of the re- would begin such a trial within a year. Comparative stu- dies on a large number of adol- escent some of whom would receive the vaccine while others get a they should provide conclusive proof of the vaccine's protective benefits. The called cytomega- lo virus infection or cytomegal- ic inclusion is one for which no specific therapy ex- ists. Cytomegalo virus probably has inflicted damage on hu- mans for hundreds of years. But it was only at the begin- ning of this century that patho- logists first described the dis- that is so named because of the imprint the virus leaves on cells when they are exam- ined under the microscope. Cy- tomegalo virus called are produced in the nuclei of the cells that swell as a result of the infection in many of the body's organs. In the 17 years since Ameri- can scientists discovered the causative doctors have learned that cytomegalo virus produces its greatest damage during pregnancy when moth- ers pass the virus to the fetus in the womb. In its most severe the virus causes natural abortions and kills newborns from brain and liver damage. About one baby in 200 is bora with congenital cytomegalo vir- us infection. Some show a min- or illness at birth. But the great majority of the babies with con- genital cytomegalo virus infec- tion to surfer no ob- vious ill-effect and make nor- mal physical and mental pro- Stern said.

Higher tough meat predicted for U.S. consumer Knowledge better than pesticides By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO If you can tell one bug from another and know which is dandelion and which is crab you can cut down on the chem- icals you use to keep your garden looking its best. Dr. G. B. Orlob says there are four general things to do to minimize use of recognize your pick the right chemical when you do use spray as little as and use non-chem- ical controls as much as pos- sible. He says plain old-fashioned band-picking of dis- eased leaves and weeds can go a long way toward cutting down the use of killer sprays in the average small city gar- den. Knowledge can do more. more but per- haps more a challenge to the Dr. Orlob is professor of botany at University of To- ronto and teacher of a work- shop series on pest control being given by the division of university extension.

In addi- tion to the higher prices for beef that are forecast when the Nixon administration's freeze on beef prices is lifted Sept. you're going to be getting some of the toughest meat you've ever eaten. So predicts John own- er of an 850-acre Bedford Coun- ty Cattle who warns that you bad better get good sup- ply of on hand for the winter months to get through all the meat from cattle that have been grass-fed rather than -with high- protein grains. growers allow cat- tle to feed off grass for the first year of their lives until they get to be about 600 pounds. They are then shipped to growing farms for three or four they are fed mostly allowed to gain about 200 pounds. After they are then shipped to for 100 they are kept penned up and fed high-protein grams and soybean meal. It is that finishing process that makes the meat tender and gives it that marbled fatty look in the grocery freezer. And it is that part of the cattle-grow- ing process that according to cattlemen have been skipping during the price freeze. The main reason that cattle- men aren't using the finishing process this year is that it is not economical for them to do so with the skyrocketing prices of soybean meal and which has almost quadrupled in the last year to a record a ton. that it's prohibitive using it for finishing Byrne said. It takes about two- thirds of a ton of grain and soybean meal to put the last 200 pounds on cattle when they are finished and the cost for feedlot operators to do that for each head has increased from about last year to about this year. they're just keeping them on silage rather than Byrne said. This makes for tough and muscular meat and Byrne predicts it will show up late this fall as unfinished cattle are slaughtered. Of Byrne housewife sees beef is at an all- time but she doesn't look at the costs that have increased to make that He said the price for a tractor for his for had tripled in the last 20 years while in the same period the price he sells his beef for has only gone up from 36 cents a pound in 1952 to 45 cents a pound two months ago. guess I'll throw that SEE THE AMAZING 4-YVAY VORWERK The cleaner that will revolutionize house cleaning FAIRFIELD APPLIANCE SERVICES LTD. 1244 3rd AVE.
