NO REPORT NEW YORK (CP) - The New York Wall St. noon market report was not available today due to communication troubles. EDMONTON (CP) - Agriculture Minister Henry Ruste has scheduled a meeting with Otto Lang, federal minister responsible for wheat - policy, in Ottawa Feb. 8 to discuss the prairie grains stabilization program proposed by the federal minister. Mr. Ruste made the comment when asked for his reaction to a counter - proposal to the federal plan made by Manitoba Agriculture Minister Samuel Uskiw. He declined to comment on Mr. Uskiw's proposal "until I've had a chance to study it further." The Manitoba pro p o s a 1, a guaranteed net income of $10 an acre to prairie grain farmers, would guarantee the income on a basic quantity of production without diminishing efficiency of production incentives. Livestock report Mr. Uskiw said the federal proposal is not adequate because it deals with cash flow and not with the income of individual farmers, income which baa been steadily dropping. Mr. Ruste earlier said anything that could be done to stabilize the income of grain fanners to provide an adequate return for his labor on a regular basis "will have great benefit* to the whole economy."

One of the women had been dubbed the "Typhoid Mary" of Kings Park State Hospital on Long Island. The pitiful reference was to Mary Mallon, the original "Typhoid Mary," who had infected many persons with the serious disease in the early part of the century. Until 1969, it appeared that the three Kings Park patients would live out their lives under restrictions that had been imposed two decades earlier.

Rice, on the Kings Park staff as a psychiatrist, sought help from the Cornell Medical Centre and used its recommended treatment for chronic carriers of salmonella typhosa Last June, the state health department, which conducted laboratory tests on the women, officially released Rose, Anna and Minnie from their isolation on the top floor of the building. They remain at the facility but mix with other patients and attend recreational activities from which they had been excluded since 1949. In addition to being rid of typhoid organisms, Rice says, their mental health has improved through living in a "dig' nified environment." The role Rice played in curing the three survivors is described in the Mental Hygiene News.
