Ita; virus prospects a hui By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Canadians in the west and the east are suffering from an infestation of giant- sized mosquitoes. With the onslaught o! the vor- acious insects who have a new lease on life now that D-D.T. is not being used to control them, there comes a fear of a new outbreak of that dangerous infection ol the brain encephalitis. ____ Ora-the-job training grant for dog groomer There hasn't been an epi demic since 1965 but Saskatche- wan and oilier provinces have not forgotten that last outbreak in the prairie province of the virus infection that incapaci- tates men and horses. How does it survive the rug- ged, harsh prairie winters? That is the great mystery. An- other mystery is how an epi- 1 demic is predicted. Federal agriculture depart- OTTAWA (CP) -The 41.MO jobs created by federal grants to businesses (or on- the-job training go far beyond conventional occupations. A Prince George, B.C., poo- d 1 e -c a r c business received as the government's con- tribution to 10 weeks of train- ing for a "dog groomer with cashier and secretarial skills." In B r 1 d g e t o w n, N.S., a trainee is learning to become an embalmer through a year's work at a cost to the govern- ment of And in Peterborough, Ont., grants of are helping a business train one "bait painter" and one fishing-lure assembler for 24 and six weeks respectively. The examples are from selection of project summa- ries provided by the federa1 manpower department. "The bait painter sounds a most1 unique occupation and generally takes two years to really notes a man power official. "The trainee will become proficient with a spray gun with which to d fine painting and mix paint and powders with thinners in his unusual craft." The enthusiastic response of jusinesscs to the program may he a factor in the gov- ernment's decision on whether .0 renew it. About million was allot- ted to the program, which was part of special measures announced during the winter to combat rapidly-rising un- employment. The deadline for applications for the grants was March 17. But Manpower Minister Martin O'Connell has told the Commons the government is preparing more employment- stimutating programs along the lines of last winter's. Many large companies par- ticipated in the manpower training grants. Among the largest grants were J13D.917 to Hawker-Siddeley Canada Ltd. of Halifax for 58 trainees, to Air Canada for training 81 stewardesses in Montreal, to Simp- sons Sears Ltd., Ottawa, for training 86 bilingual sates per- sonnel for a new store across the river in Hull, Que., to MotorCoach Industries Ltd. of Winnipeg for 133 trainees, and to Mclntyre Coal ment experts are tackling these uito population' does not Indi ate an epidemic is on the way.

Cache, Alta., for 48 trainees. It is expected that the vast majority of trainees will be- come permanent employees. For many of the trninnw, the program will mean per- manent jobs in fields which previously had been bypassed by government training agen- cies or trade schools. Other project-1; include (he two persons in Badcieck, N.S., who are being instructed for 20 weeks on rearing oysters, the trainee in Amherst, N.S., who is speding a year learn- ing to be a swine herdsman and the apprentice saddle- maker in Hillbrook, Ont. One of the most enjoyable jobs may be that of the "cel- lar-man" in Kelowna, B.C. His tasks for the 20-week training period win include preparing and sampling wines. For another unusual task, the Vancouver employer added a logical specification. The task, involving two per- sons, is to feed bee colonies, raise and sort queen bees ana sort honeycombs. The condition specified was that the trainees should be averse to bees."

A. Olson. Thousands of blood samples rom wild and domestic animals nd from more than Sas atchewan mosquitoes, h a v een examined for the virus ince 1962. Dr. J. J. R. McLintoch of the research station has reported to Xtawa an "astonishing range of icsts of the virus." These include nine species of mosquitoes, at least 16 species of birds, as well as muskrats, skunks, ground squirrels, mice, pigs, cattle, buffalo, frogs and garter snakes. Principal hosts for the virus are nestling birds such as house sparrows. It is in these that the virus increases during the sum mer, according to Dr. Me Lintoch's findings. The virus goes into a summe cycle of infection in young bird which are bill en by Culex tar main mosquito car rier. The mosquito in return car ries the virus to other youn birds. The cycle is bird to mos uito to bird. The mosquitoes will also feed men and horses. However he assured Can ans, now scratching aero le country, that a large mos However the discovery of which species transmits the virus lias made it possible for scientists to say when there will ie an outbreak; If the mosquito doesn't reach a cer- laln population level by the end of June, It's certain there won't be enough of them later in the summer to support an epidemic. But the other hand, the fact that it does reach that certain level docs not In Itself, guaran- tee an epidemic because of other factors involved. What concerns the experts is that since 1968 there is a new generation of children who have and who have had no chance to cquire resistance to it. There U also a population of about horses in Saskat- chewan. They are better bred and they are popular pels. But when thers Is no epidemic for several years it is hard lo con- vince the owners lo have their animals vaccinated. A vaccine for horses was de- veloped in Saskatoon by the iate Dr. J. S. Fulton. Meantime prospects for a human vaccine 'appear promising" according lo Dr. McLintoch. One of the goals of the scien- tists in Saskatoon Is to learn more about the breeding habits of Culex larsalis so that they can conlrol it, Another is to ba able to predict threatening epi- demics. There Is Utlle danger of It spreading from horses to hu- mans. The best protection at present is mosquito repellents, said Dr. McLintoch. Firms merge for oil CALGARY (CP) The two.
