Monday, March 29, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - f7 Radio equipped wild foxes to be used in rabies fight UNIED NATIONS (Reuter) - Wild foxes fitted with tiny radio transmitters may help the fight against rabies, which is spreading among wildlife in Europe. Foxes have been accused of maintaining the chain of infection in areas rampant with rabies. In West Germany, 69 per cent of all recorded rabies cases involved foxes in 1968. In Switzerland in 1967 and 1968 the proportion was as high as 84 per cent. A research program co-ordinated by the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization has been set up to determine the extent of the disease and establish the best method to control it. To determine the fox's role as a reservoir of the disease, FAO and W.H.O. jointly are collecting detailed information on the transmision of rabies as well as on fox biology, including population density, population structure, reproduction and feeding habits. Radio telemetry is being used. A bronze metal collar is slipped over the head of a fox caught in a steel trap. The metal band, 10 inches in circumference, contains an antenna and transmitter for a miniaturized radio. TRACK ANIMALS The fox is released again and as it scampers back into the forest, receiving units track its route. W.H.O. and FAO officials say the rising rate of rabies among wildlife threatens human beings, although actual cases of the cirus infection among people are relatively rare. In 1966, about 26,000 persons in Europe were treated for rabies after having been bitten by animals suspected of having the The three-stage treatment is uncomfortable and sometimes has serious side-effects. Abdominal injections of vacine are given for at least 14 consecutive days, followed by boster injections 10 or 23 days after the last vaccine injection to produce an adequate level of antibodies. The bite of rabid dogs or oats that contract the disease from foxes or other wild animals is the most frequent source of human infection. DEVELOP SPASMS After an incubation period varying from about three weeks to several months, rabies victims develop throat spasms, convulsions, eventual paralysis of all muscles, and death. Despite severe thirst, victims cannot swalow water-hence the other name for rabies, hydrophobia, or fear of water. Some animals are affected by rabies but do not pas the disease on to other animals. As a rule, affected animals die from rabies. Some, such as vampire bats in Latin America, are capable of transmitting the disease for long periods without shewing signs of illness. One bat kept alone In captivity yielded virus from its saliva 16 months after capture. Most tropical bats seem to recover from the furious manifestations of rabies. Papers, radio hit by B.C. ad ban By CRAIG ASPINALL Canadian Press Staff Writer Initial reaction to legislation which would bann all liquor and tobacco advertising in British Columbia is that publications and radio stations will be hard hit, while television outlets and the manufacturers will be relatively unaffected. Owners of radio stations and publications in B.C. were stunned when Premier W. A. C. Bennett introduced the legislation in the provincial legislature Friday and announced it would be effective Sept. 1. For many of them, revenue from liquor and cigarette advertising is the key to a healthy profit margin or even to their survival. Television is in a different position. It already operates under a Canadian Radio-Television commission ruling forbidding hard liquor ads, and the tobacco manufacturers advertise Hog prices EDMONTON (CP) - Prices to 11 a.m. provided by the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board: Edmonton: Quoted 20.05 to 21.85, selling 20.05, average Friday 20.92. Calgary: Quoted 20.05 to 21.05, selling 20.05, average Friday 21.24. Red Deer: Quoted 20.05 to 20.85, selling 20.05, average Friday 21.18. Lethbridge: Quoted and selling 20.10, average Friday 20.95.

Sows at all points 14.10. on television only after 9 p.m. Present B.C. law also bans broadcast alcohol ads. Liquor companies already beam a hefty amount of advertising into B.C. via TV stations in Bellingham, Wash. They undoubtedly will increas* this. CALLS IT HYPOCRISY Hal Straight, publisher of B.C.'s largest weekly, the North Shore Citizen, described the legislation as "rank hypocrisy" and asked "why doesn't the government stop selling Iiq-quor?" Joe Kobluk of radio station CJAT in Trail, B.C., president of the B.C. Association of Broadcasters, said the ban "will be of great concern to many broadcasters who will be faced with large decreases in advertising revenue." Jim Schatz, president of the B.C. Weekly Newspaper Publishers Association, said liquor advertising accounts for about 10 per cent of the average weekly newspaper's revenue, and its loss could put a number of papers in "serious trouble." Federal Health Minister John Munro promised recently he would introduce regulations shortly concerning cigarette advertising, but did not give details. Alberta bans liquor ads from radio and television and a liquor control board supervises advertisements in newspapers, magazines and periodicals. The printed ads may not show family groups or mention prices.
