(AP) If you catch a cold by year's end as you and most other people probably will you should hope it is caused by the corona virus. Not that you will be any less miserable. You won't. Not that your doctor will have any more luck curing the at- tack. He won't. But with a corona-caused cold, you'll at least be one of the "in" crowd, uppcr-resph tonally speaking. That is, you'll be sufferi: from the latest thing in t common cold a virus in feet as mod and up-to-date the miniskirt.

The Banff Advisory Council said yesterday the tents were being financed under a federal government program providing for emergency hostels across Canada. The council said the provin- cial government would ide equipment to feed the youths on short notice. CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC The question of transient youth has been hotly debated by of this resort during the last few weeks, particular- ly since a campground was es- tablished recently for persons with no money. Councillor Cecil Philpott ac- cused the federal government of having its priorities mixed up and said the money set aside "or the hostels could he better spent to alleviate the town's lousing shortage for1 summer staff. T know of one place where 12 girls are staying.in a base- ment because they can't get in any other place." Ha said if health regulator were strictly enforced a larj number of private residenc for temporary staff would 1 closed. The temporary staff mostly high school and unive sity students who come to wor at motels and hotels catering the tourist industry.

HOPES PETER OUT But with discovery of the corona virus comes this con- clusion of prominent research- ers: Chances appear slimmer than ever for any major break- through in the near future to- ward developing conventional preventive vaccines against all the multiple varieties of cold- fausing germs. The scientists say the only hope for any major conquest of the common cold in the for- seeable future rests on new ex- periments aimed at developing chemical drugs as distin- quished from vaccines which are made up of toned-down ver- sions of the viruses themselves. Even the most potent and ver- satile of the antibiotic wonder drugs, such as penicillin and its latter-day followers, are powerless to prevent or cure the common cold. This is because colds are caused by viruses as distin- qquished from such other mi- crobes as bacteria, fungi and rickettsiae for which the anti- biotics and certain other drugs are bad news. At present, American scien- tists are employing prisoner and other volunteers to test newly developed' drugs, includ- ing one called Poly that are designed to stimulate ISie body to produce extra quanti- ties of a natural virus-fighting chemical called "interferon." Also being tested are other experimental compounds, de- veloped by several drug firms, designed to kill cold germs directly. Dr. Robert Couch of Baylor University College of Medicine, Houston, Tex. one of the centres where such drugs are being tested said "the next two .or three years" should re- veal whether anything promis- ing is on the horizon. EXPEHIMBNTS GO ON In the vaccine field, Couch and other scientists say, the best hope for achieving at least partial success lies in other pioneering studies aimed at producing "hybrid" viruses, consisting of combinations of two different germs; and "tem- perature-sensitive" mutant vi- ruses that could thrive in the relatively cool environment of the nose and throat but be kill- ed if they seeped down into warmer, >vital areas, of the body. The coronas have tended to increase the complexity of the problem because they have been found in at least 21 vari- eties any one of which can lay you low. There may be ad- ditional strains still undiscover- sd. And to this elan must be added at least 125 known or suspected strains of the "rhino" viruses so named because they invade the nose. Col- lectively, these consitute the chief cause of misery-in-ducing but non-fatal colds in adults. Moreover, the common cold brigade includes several other types of germs that cause com- paratively less prevalent but more serious, and sometimes fatal, illnesses especially in children. A number of these germs were first isolated at the Cali- fornia State health department's virology laboratories at Berke- ley, where research is support- ed by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease. SEASONLY VIRUSES? One lab scientist, Dr. Jack H. Schieble, says there's some evidence that coronas may be chiefly responsible for colds that strike in the winter, where- as the "rhino" viruses usually are most active in the fall and spring and appear to lie low in the winter months, at least on the U.S. cast coast. "I hope." Schieble said, "that the situation with the coronas won't prove to be like that with other viruses, especially the rhinos, which come in so many different strains. "But, even as things stand now, I see no cause for real optimism for controlling the common cold in general through the usual preventive methods for viral diseases that is, by vaccines."
