Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 1-1 Thursday, December 24, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 __ _ disease rampant EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Rufflings its feathers, a chicken s t i r s the ever-present dust of a henhouse. Soon, the whole flock inhales a virus that mav kill half within a year. This is M a r e k s disease, a leukemia-like infection that is costing U.S. poultrymen some million a year, by government estimate. To combat a growing loss from the disease, for the Austrian doctor who first described it in 1908, several manufacturers are busily producing a recently developed vaccine. Studies show it to be 90 per cent effective, says Dr. Ben R. Burmester, director of the U.S. department of agriculture's regional poultry research laboratory at Michigan State University. The vaccine, expected to be available commercially soon after Jan. 1, is given by injection to newly-hatched chicks. FOUND ANSWER It comes from a non-disease virus isolated from turkeys by Dr. Richard L. Witter, a government research veterinarian. Two years ago, Dr. H. Graham Purchase, another research veterinarian, and Dr. William 0 k a z a k i, government micro-biologist at the university lab-oratorv, found that chickens given "the virus did not develop Marek's disease. There is no pattern to the lethal potential of Marek's disease once it infects a flock, but Burmester says up to 50 per cent may die w i t h i n a year when the effect is most acute. More often, he says, the disease kills 2 to 30 per cent of the flock. Its presence is difficult to detect until too late. A farmer may have no idea what is happening unlil he suddenly finds scores of his chicks with lameness, listlessness and drooping wings. The uncontrolled multiplication of white blood cells leads to tumors in vital organs. The nervous system is affected and paralysis sets in. Marek's disease cannot be transmitted to humans, but slaughtered chickens that show the skin humps, lesions and streaked muscle tissue caused by the disease arc condemned anyway. The agriculture department has a policy of with-holding from market any chicken that has a tumorous condition, even if it poses no health mines, industrials Supplied by Richardson Securities of Canada BID OU SALE (lllOO a.m. Ouulcsl >.m.

U.S. Steel 31.1214 15 Utilities 119.25 up uranium By CAUL MOLLINS OTTAWA (CP) The government has agreed to advance million for buying and stockpiling uranium from Denison Mines Ltd. at Elliot Late, Ont., under an agreement to settle a long standing tangle over ownerslu'p and production. Denison Chairman Stephen wha had said at the height of tho rj-gumcnt he would sue tho government and shut down the mine, cheerfully described the preliminary settlement Wednesday as a Christmas present and "a message of good cheer" for the company employees. The agreement will assure "'f'lis at the mine which employs 900. J. J. Greene, mines and energy minister, announced the federal assistance from Jan. 1 through 1974 following a cabinet meeting. Mediations preceding the agreement hi principle had been prolonged. Mr. Roman said in Toronto the talks had been very difficult at times. A government' official said they had gone through about two dozen proposals until they came up with one acceptable to Mr. Roman and the federal cabinet. ALL NOT RESOLVED The government announcement said "many important provisions" remain to be resolved. The general agreement calls for the purchase of about to i mining million pounds of uranium con- 1 ccntratc in four years at a cost .0 the government of a wund, about S7.5 million a year ,'.nd up to ?29.5 million for four years. Denison will take a financial interest in me joint stockpile valued at a pound and about million in all a one-quarter interest. Any profits on future sales from the stockpile after 1974 will be shared equally between [he government and Denison. Denison will be responsible for Jie sales, but marketing costs mil be shared. Sales from tlie new, joint stockpile would start onlv after ilw beginning of 1975. If Dcniso, at that time had any uranium left in its existing stockpile, one-quarter of any new sales would be drawn from that reserve and the rest from the joint Denison-government supply. Private sales and those from the joint stockpile will take precedence over any sales from the government's own S100 million stockpile accumulated under a direct-purchase program since 1963 under a program that expires New Year's Eve. In addition, the government has promised to play a more active role trying to push export sales for the privately-owned uranium mines. Denison has sales contracts with Japanese interests that would take only about half of firm jrofitablc production rate In tlio next four years, building up to ;ui economic rale from 1975 through lyiil. The government raid Denison's present stockpile could fill all present orders until 1975. The d i s p u t e erupted last March whi-i: the government forbade tlie sale of a controlling interest in Denison to U.S.-con-trolled Hudson's Bay Oil and Gas Co. In July, the government said its 1963 programs to buy and ctnrimilr. uranium rnnrprrtrain would end Dec. 31. Mr. Roman took out writs to sue the government and said he would close down the mine until 1975. In effect, the government now has to provide funds to keep the mine going in place of the injection of private capital it denied by banning the sale of Denison Shares to Hudson's Bay. In accepting the deal, Mr. Reman referred to "differences in the area of economic nationalism" reference to the government's move to prevent control from passing to Hudson's Bay. Denison reported net revenue of mere than S5 million for the first six monlhj of tlus year, up by almost from the same I960 period.

The increase was only half the amount of October's rise. The consumer price index reached 137.8 per cent of the 1957-59 average, meaning it cost last month for every worth of typical family expenses in the base period. The report said the price rise in November moderated because of a substantial drop of food prices and lower gasoline prices. Prices for clothing, housing, cars and consumer services went up.
