Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE UTHBRIDGE HERAID Thurnfay, March 19, 1973 Next major influenza epidemic expected in 1978 NEW YORK (AP) A viro- logist is urging that scientists start looking for viruses in the domestic animal population of American barnyards. He wants to trap the vims hat might touch off the next worldwide epidemic of in- fluenza. That virus, says Dr. Edwin D. Kilbournc, may be lurking there in the animals, waiting for the chance to make the jump to hu- mans. If this theory is correct, vaccines could then be devel- oped ahead of tinie to protect people against the influenza epi- demic that is predicted for later in this decade. At the same lime, says Dr. Kilbourne, chairman of the mi- crobiology department at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, wide field trials of existing flu vaccines should be conducted In humans. These steps would be part of an effort now under way in lab- oratories throughout the Poking to to conquer influenza. At one of these laboratories, the Pasteur Institute in Paris, scientists announced recently the development of a vaccine to fight viral strains that might appear between now and the next expected major epidemic in 1978. New epidemics of influenza sweep the world about every If years. There is a growing belie that the new virus Is In a reser- voir of viruses in the animal population. The virus may make the jump to humans In Asia, where there is a close nan-animal contact in rural areas. was no genius By CAROL KENNEDY LONDON (CP) "He was the man who everybody would wish to be Such is the glowing verdict delivered by author Nigel Nicol- son on Field Marshal Earl Alex- ander of Tunis, who after a glit- tering military career became one of the best-loved governors- general Britain ever sent to Canada. The first full-scale biography of Alexander, entitled Alex, is published today by Weidenfeld and Nicholson. Alexander agreed to the project shortly be- fore his death at 77 in June, 1969, and the book is based on his papers and despatches as well as interviews with fellow generals, family and friends. Author Nicolson, son of the diarist Sir Harold Nicolson, served as a junior officer on Al- exander's staff for part of the Second War. He portrays Alexander as a paragon of qual- ities; A beguiling mixture of artist and soldier, a man of great bravery, grace and mod- esty who "never made a per- sonal enemy." Yet his book, though its tone often borders on hero-worship, suggests that Alexander's very gentleness and consideration for others may sometimes have made him less effective as a military leader when placed over such prickly leaders as Britain's Bernard Montgomery and George Patton of the United States. In the western desert, for in- stance, Nicolson says Alexander deliberately adopted with Mont- gomery the role of "an under- standing husband in a difficult realizing the vol- atile Monty was a general who "must either be left unpinioned or his neck wrung." ALAMEIN COSTLY ifonty did not fail, but El Ala- xnein was a costly victory and Nicolson says Alexander could have planned its strategy differ- ently had he not placed such implicit trust in his subordinate. In effect, says the author, Alex- ander declined to exercise his authority as commander-in- chief. The landings in Sicily led to another controversy arising from Alexander's natural diffi- dence. Here, failure to make Co- ordinated use of army, naval and air strength allowed bulk of the German and Italian forces to withdraw across the Straits of Messina. Nicolson says Alexander knew a co-ordi- nated strategy was right, but was reluctant to press it on his commando r-in-chief, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower. The book demonstrates how Alexander's swift and contin- uous success spawned its own legend and at the same time prohably blunted the edge that would have come with more challenge or more pressure. NEcolson quotes military his- torian Sir Basil Liddell Hart, who said Alexander had "an in- nate reluctance to exert more power over others than the min- imum necessary for his task, and sometimes it was not enough for the purpose. "Eminent as his record was, he might have been a greater 'commander if he had not been so nice a man and so deeply a gentleman." Earl Mountbatten was even crispcr in his verdict: "He had almost every quality you could wish to have, except that he had the average brain of the average English gentleman. He lacked that little extra cubic centimetre which produces gen- Education study for Montana HELENA, Mont. Thomas Judge has signed into law a bill appropriating for a blue ribbon study of post- secondary education in Mon- tana. Judge said that post second- ary education in the state is on a self-destructive course. He said that unless the system can be restructured and costs brought into line, the state will be unable to provide quality education beyond high school.
