Food poison cases climb at university EDMONTON (CP) The number of cases of suspected food poisoning among students at the University of Alberta has risen to about from 40, an of- ficial said here. Dr. M. J. Ball, director of stu- dent health services, said the rise occurred after an initial 40 cases had been reported. Dr. Ball said the cause of the illness had not yet been deter- mined and the results of lab tesls would not be complete for a couple of days. The students were described as "in some discomfort with vomiting and diarrhea." He said some of ttie affected students were in residence at the university and had eaten meals there. However, other cases were among off-campus students, raising the possibility that the illnesses include both food poisoning and a virus in- fection. Fourteen of the students were being cared for in the univer- sity infirmary7 but the illness is not serious, Dr. Ball said.
