Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD-Thuraday, March Grasshopper threat aired OTTAWA (CP) Prairie MPs continued their campaign Wednesday for a government war plan to counter the threat of a grasshopper invasion this spring. Conservative Doug Neal (Moose Jaw) told the Commons agriculture committee that the insects could hit as many as 57 million acres of grainland if a warm dry spring allows the es- timated hatch. "There is a real threat of in- festation." Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan replied that federal estimates of the potential invasion this year show that only six million acres may be hit. Responsibility for controlling the insects lay with the provinces, but the federal government would supply technical and research help. Bill Knight (NDP-Assi- who suggested earlier this week that the grasshoppers be harvested rather than destroyed to feed protein-hungry Japanese markets, said a special disaster fund should be set up to help farmers defray spraying and other costs.

Under the 105-year-old Animal Contagious Diseases Act, veterinary scientists are forbidden 'to import specimens of such animal diseases as hog cholera, African swine fever and hoof- and-mouth disease. But there is no legislation stopping medical scientists from importing, through the mails or by courier, specimens of virulent human viruses such as smallpox, plague vacillus, yellow fever or lassa fever. To look at the problem, a five-member committee was set up last month by the federal health protection branch under Dr. J. A. McKiel, director general of the branch's laboratory centre for disease control. A health department news release says the committee will "investigate ways and means of controlling importation of infectious agents presenting a high risk to the health of Canadians.'' Dr. A. B. Morrison, head of the health protection-branch, said in an interview some medical particularly those in universities and teaching may be experimenting with in- fectious agents under poten- tially dangerous conditions. Two researchers died of hepatitis B last year at University Hospital in Saskatoon, and there were later suggestions of a slip-up in the handling techniques for the virus, he said. Dr. Morrison said he has' no idea how many specimens of virulent germs were being im- ported, but that the committee is to determine this. Smuggled coins recovered Matthew E. Murphy, acting regional director of investigations for United States Customs, poses at news conference in New York Wednesday with worth of Canadian silver coins smuggled into the United States. Two Canadians were arrest- ed in Manhattan last Sunday in connection with the case. It was estimated that the silver content of the coins, after smelting, would be worth in the United States. 9 fife your gas, it's your money. Herek how you can save a little ofJboth. Princess Anne returns home GUETERSLOH, West Ger- many (Reuter) Princess Anne flew home to Britain Wednesday after a three-day stay in West Germany marked by strict security measures.
