To the vaccine has only been tested with which have immune systems similar to that of Dr. Harold Jennings of the im- munochemistry section at the National Research Council said Friday in an interview. But Connaught Laboratories Ltd a Toronto drug plans to produce the vaccine and then conduct field trials with Canadian Forces volun- said Dr. Jennings. The vaccine is the result of four years of research and col- laboration by Dr. of the council's division of biological Dr. I. C. P. Smith of the council's biophysics section and Dn Paul a in the federal health department's laboratory centre for disease control. Cerebrospinal meningitis is not so widespread in Canada that large-scale vaccination programs would be said Dr Jennings. there were high- risk groups that are susceptible to the such as armed services native peoples and inhabitants of crowded areas. youths in their late teens and immunologically deficient adults were most likely to be its victims. MILITARY ANXIOUS Dr. Jennings said military authorities were anxious for a vaccine. A successful vaccine could have more dramatic effects in Africa and South America where the disease is much more he said. the Chinese are re- ported to have a vaccine and U.S. medical specialists were testing another type of vaccine in he said. But it was too early to determine the success of these. The micro-organism attacked 436 Canadians last with a mortality rate of about 25 per cent because of the virulent nature of the bug.

Ability of the have-nots to dominate the UN was demon- strated dramatically in the special meeting on raw materials. In street the poorer known popularly as the Third World or non-aligned forced the West to acquiesce to a revolutionary declaration calling for a new world economic order that most Western states cannot accept. It was a simple matter of arithmetic. The non-aligned states have 77 the 'industrialized West 58 votes. The and a program to implement went through without recorded opposition because the West cannot afford to call a vote without suffering a major defeat. GIVES WARNING British Ambassador Ivor Richard recognized the portents for the future when he said in a closing speech to the Assembly in later be seen as a turning point Things will- never be the same U.S. Ambassador John Scali bluntly told the Assembly that' the is not the vehicle to use in solving vital and complex problems in the UN. The setting was a special session called at the request of Algeria and the Third World countries to discuss raw materials and development. Western delegates suggested Algeria called for the session to take some of the heat off Middle East states for the manner in which they pushed up world oil prices last fall. The non-aligned most of them former colonial territories and producers of raw material for the industrialized saw a chance to duplicate the success of the oil states in get- ting higher prices for their own resources. The Third World placed be- fore the Assembly a radical declaration among other for establishment of international cartels to control raw participation by developing countries in all international right of -nationalization of foreign countries and the right of all people of colonial countries to restitution and full com- pensation for depletion of their natural resources. PLEA IGNORED Western delegates found much of the program unaccep- table They suggested modi- fications and urged developing countries to try to attain some of their aims through estab- lished such as UN agencies. with single-minded purpose and proclaiming Third World the non- aligned group pressed their declaration to adoption. They shunted aside a last-minute U S proposal for establishment of a billion UN fund to provide immediate help for poorer nations crippled economically by high prices tor food and oil. The even though it has been accepted by the General binding on no one. Its adoption was followed by a parade of Western delegates expressing reservations. The West particularly is op- posed to provisions to set up international cartels and to give countries the right to nationalize property and fix compensation as they chose. The next- step is for Secretary General Kurt Waldheim to call leaders of international agencies to advise him on setting up a special fund to provide emergency help and development for countries in economic crisis.
