Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Held in Asia Lloyd Oppsl, a missionary captured in Laos last October, is expected to be "released later this week. Oppel is shown in this snapshot released by his parents, who live in Cour-tenay, B.C. New flu Fuel-oil crisis possible before end of winter Wednesday, February 7, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 5 i He's wanted By EDWARD COWAN New York Times Service WASHINGTON - In a fresh appraisal, government energy planners have concluded that the fuel-oil shortage could reach crisis proportions before winter ends if there is a sustained cold wave. The most optimistic assessment being circulated within the government is that the states east of the Rockies will just squeak through the rest of the winter if temperatures are normal. Looking further ahead, the analysts believe that unless President Nixon makes further modifications of the oil import quotas, the fuel-oil supply situation next winter could be even tighter. In New York, the city's housing authority was forced to cut off heat entirely from JO a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday for the occupants of about 157,000 ao-artments in its low-income pro- jects. The .supplier was completely out of low-sulphur fuel oil used in the public housing. Criticism of the quota system, including the charge that it has enabled the big oil companies to take customers away from independent terminal operators, is expected to be heard today at a hearing of the senate interior and insular affairs committee. Witnesses from the industry and the administration, plus governor Francis W. Sargent of Massa- chusetts are expected to testify. The senate democratic caucus called on Nixon to take "all necessary emergency measures, including the release of military stockpile supplies, to meet the essential requirements for oil and other fuels in regions of critical shortage." The 'American Petroleum Institute reported that refinery production of heating oil increased last week after declining for two Weeks in a row. Stocks of heating oil east of the Rockies, where the shortage has been concentrated, continued to fell at a rate of roughly one million barrels a day. In the week ended Jan. 26 they stood at J 25 million barrels, down 26 million barrels from a year earlier. The government analysts expect that with normal cold weather, stocks east of the Rockies, will fall to 60 million from 75 million barrels by March 31. Below 70 million, it is said, there is virtually no reserve to meet extra demand in the event of subnormal temperatures. The reason is that the stocks are widely spread around the country and at such a low level that ind'vidu-a! refineries and distributors find they have no oil to spare. If stocks drop to 60 million barrels, one oil expert commented, "your system is already breaking down." He said, "the outer reaches of your distribution system, like Maine, could have no fuel at all." -dead or alive NAIROBI (AP) - The ruling Kenya African National Union (KANU) called Tuesday for the capture "dead of alive" of Ian Henderson who, the party said, is head of the Rhodesian special branch. Henderson formerly was head of Kenya's special branch, the British operation against Mau Mau guerrillas in the 1950s. He was deported by Kenya 10 years ago. claimed PARIS (Reuter) - A French medical research team claimed Tuesday it has discovered a vpccine against influenza which will be effective against all st'-mns of the disease. . Production of the revolutionary vaccine already has started and it will be available in France shortly, researchers at the Pasteur Institute said. If claims made for the vaccine prove true, it could mean a cure for one of the world's most common ailments, which strikes down hundreds of millions of people every year. Dr. Claude Hannoun, who heads the Pasteur research team, told reporters that the vaccine differs from all others in that it anticipates future strains of influenza. "It is effective not only asainst' current strains but arrainst those that will break out over the next few years," he said. The Pasteur vaccine thus goes far beyond those vaccines which have been used to fight one certain strain, say Asian flu or Hong Kong flu, but which have been "outmoded" by new viruses breaking out the following year. Dr. Jacques Monod, head of the Pasteur Institute and a winner of the Nobel Prize for medicine, called it a "revolutionary discovery." The Pasteur Institute said tests with the new vaccine have been highly successful. - New purification methods developed in the United States mean that it can be taken in far larger doses than has been possible with earlier vaccines. Hannoun and Australian Dr. Fazekas de Saint Groth classified all known flu viruses and their variants and worked out a dominant feature common to all. This enabled the Pasteur team to project into the future. In 1971, they produced a vaccine to combat the then-unknown 1972 virus. The vaccine, which is soon to go on the market, was taken several stages farther and should neutralize influenza epidemics at least until 1978, Hannoun said. The .World Health Organization has called flu "the last of the great plagues" which have periodically decimated the human race. Sunflower growers to meet Feb. 8 EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta department of agriculture has scheduled a meeting of sunflower growers this week in an attempt to improve market conditions for the oilseed crop. The meeting, at Calgary on Thursday, is an exploratory one, Dave Durksen, export marketing officer for the department, said in a prepared statement. "We want to get reaction from farmers on this crop," Mr. Durksen said. "We want to find out if they're interested and the price they expect to receive from sunflower seed production compared to returns from the other grain and oilseed crops." He said a market for sunflower products exists but "the crop must make economic sense or we won't get production." Farmers in Manitoba, Sas- . for all the SPECIALS hat SAVE YOU MONEY!
