Dutifully they had it delivered to Buckingham Palace where it was put in with Queen Elizabeth's personal mail. But the Elizabeth referred to on the envelope was Elizabeth Boulter of Birmingham, a lawyer's clerk. The letter was an inter-office memo, accidentally swept into a batch of outgoing mail. Miss Boulter was somewhat surprised today when her memo turned up in an elegant envelope bearing the royal crest with a printed slip reading "With the compliments of Her Majesty's private secretary." Underneath a palace official had written "Sent here in error." MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - A mistake by a girl telex operator who ordered 2,000 shares in the nickel company Poseidon instead of 20, was blamed today for the collapse of a Sydney brokerage firm. The firm, Malcolm Hazel Steel and Hill, was suspended by the Sydney Stock Exchange today for inability to meet "s commitments. Officials said the mistake 18 months aco cost the firm $336,000 Australian ($376,360 Canadian) before it was rectified. They added that the girl lost her job. PURLEIGH, England (AP) - Chicken farmer Roy Smith has a rare bird named Clara. She lays green eggs. ' Scientists say the black-speckled hen could be a genetic throwback to an ancient breed of chicken called the A r a n c u n a, which de-s c e n d e d from prehistoric hens. Several are reported to have reached shore from Spanish Armada galleons sunk in the English Channel in an attempted invasion of England in the early 16th century. JOLTET, III.

Relief may be in sight for allergy sufferers Strom ties into Ottawa for 'disaster policies' OPEN NEW SERVICE HONG KONG (AP) - Peking has opened a new China international tourist service to make things easier for foreign visitors. By BRIAN SULLIVAN NEW YORK (AP) -Allergy sufferers: relief may be in sight. The day may come when you no longer need fear ragweed and pollen and all the other things that make you sneeze, cough and wheeze. For the first time in many years, there is a growing hope among scientists that significant advances against allergy may be relatively close, perhaps helping sufferers in this decade. The chief hope lies in a growing understanding of the highly complex biochemical mechanism of the allergic reaction and the related possibility of developing new drugs. If new relief is provided, it could affect many of the estimated 31 million Americans suffering from one or more significant allergies. That estimate was made in January by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a branch of the National Institutes of Health. Millions suffer from hay fever, asthma and other allergies such as eczema, hives, food, drug and bee-sting allergy. Assuming one is allergic, the allergy depends to a great extent on how much pollen is in the air. Some hay fev�r sufferers sneeze at the smallest amount; other persons are less sensitive, but begin sneezing when the concentration increases. WEATHER A FACTOR The amount of pollen in the atmosphere depends a great deal on the weather. Heavy rains before the hay fever season lead to a lush growth of vegetation, and hence more pollen. Early morning sunshine dries the pollen, making it easier for the wind to carry it aloft. And windy days mean more pollen in the air, over a wider area. Emotions, too, may aggravate an attack of asthma. The basic problem of why the person reacts at all to what should be a harmless substance concerns a malfunction of the body's normal deience mechanisms, a malfunction that could ultimately be a genetic detect. The body normally produces antibodies, agents to fight such foreign substances as viruses. This is the reason the body tends to reject an implanted heart. In the allergic person, however, the defence mechanism, railed the immunological system, produces antibodies to such things as gr%s.s pollen. TV grass pollen, for example, lands on the inside of tha nose or lungs and its allergens are released. The allergen is called an antigen, just as the vims is an antigen. These antigens react with the antibodies erroneously produced by the body. f-'omehow, this antigen-antibody complex produces chemicals that produce the actual Deaths Yesterday By THE CANADIAN PRESS St. John's, Nfld.-Dr. A. C. Hunter, 79, dean emeritus of Memorial University and one of Newfoundland's leading educators; Sundrie, Alta.-Ernest Funk-hauser, 67, retired vice-president of Union Oil Canada, Ltd.; La R o n g e, Sask.-Caroline Saunderson, 109, pioneer of this north-central Saskatchewan area and survived by more than 100 great-grandchildren and a score of great-great-grandchildren. Saskatoon-Charlie Mason, 59, former New York Ranger hockey player and well-known sportsman and businessman. allergic reaction-they make you wheeze or sneeze. FOUND THE ANTIBODY The key to helping the hay fever or asthma sufferer may lie in this biochemical reaction. In 1966, in a major fundamental discobery, Dr. Kim-ishge Ishizaka found what most allergists believe to be the specific antibody that causes the disease. It is called Immunoglobulin E, or IgE. IgE is one of a number of immunoglobulins - gamma globulins. These antibodies are complex protein substances produced in bone marrow, spleen and elsewhere and found in blood and elsewhere. Because of this discovery, allergy researchers are coming to a far deeper understanding of just what's going on in the allergic process, and as a result may be able to devise new drugs to combat it. One drug allergists are looking at with hope is diso-dium cromogyleate-DSCG- which was developed in Eng-lrnd. It acts on the antigen-IgE complex, somehow interfering with the production of the chemicals that cause the weheezing. Disposable coffins on the way �9 HALIFAX (CP) - Disposable coffins made from corrugated paper will not be manufactured by Maritime Paper Products Ltd. of Halifax although the company might consider selling the materials to possible producers, James Dunkin, general manager of Maritime Paper, said today. Mr. Dunkin said that the coffins were economically unfeasible, with "not enough volume." The coffins, which range in price from $15 to $30, are suitable for transporting a body of up to 275 pounds. Mr. Dunkin said the idea of disposable coffins originated in the United States, and that his company was offered the patent rights from the U.S. He said that as far as he knew no Canadian companies were manufacturing the coffins yet, although a few companies were interested. Chinese mail notice issued OTTAWA (CP) - The post office has issued another reminder that mail destined for mainland China should be addressed to the People's Republic of China. Many letters are still being addressed to "China or Continental or Mainland China" and such mail could be returned by postal authorities. The post office adds that older names for the capital city of Peking, such as Peiping, could also cause letters to be returned. Susie Q wins frog honors ANGELS CAMP, Calif. (AP) - A long-legged frog called Susie Q is the 1971 International grand finals winner at the Ca-1 a v e r a s County international frog jumping championship. Susie Q won $300 first prize money here with three hops totalling 17 feet 9% inches for her ' owner and trainer, Bill Moniz, Gustine, Calif. Moniz, 61, has built a miniature hotel for the frogs lie raises as a hobby. He conditioned Susie Q with a diet of flies, hamburger, and bread crumbs. Dr. K. Frank Austin at the Harvard Medical School has worked with another drug, diethylcarbamazine, and is looking for others of the chemicals involved in producing allergic symptoms. The chemicals are called mediators. At Johns Hopkins University, Lawrence Lichtenstein has been studying the effectiveness of giving allergy patients injections of the irritating substance itself in gradually increasing doses to build up the person's resistance. EDMONTON (CP) - The federal government's handling of the economy !*�s caused incalculable hardships across the country and amounts to "nothing short of gross negligence," Premier Harry S'trom said here. Mr. Strom told a news conference Ottawa should spend its time trying to repair the damage it has done to the economy instead of worrying about constitutional niceties. "We are currently experiencing one of the most serious economic crises ever to confront Canada," the premier said. "We have an intolerably high level of unemployment, coupled with an intolerably high level of inflation." Alberta has neutralized some of Ottawa's "disastrous policies" and has lessened the impact of outdated economic thinking and brutal unemployment-creating policies." "But we cannot stand alone and fight the retrogressive policies of the federal government for long. . . . Despite our efforts, we will be drawn into economic disaster if the federal government continues to follow the advice of the so-called ex-perts," Mr. Strom said. Mr. Strom said it was imperative some agreement be reached at the constitutional conference in Victoria nexjl month. However, the real prob-lems facing Canada are social and economic, not of a constitutional nature and these must be given priority at the conference. Ottawa had abused its spending power by initiating shared-cost programs and the provinces were coerced into partici- pating in these programs without regard for their autonomy or priorities. Negotiations to terminate the practice of launching new initiative grants with numerous conditions attached should be started by the end of this year, said Mr. Strom. Also, it was time for the federal government to vacate the personal income tax field and turn it over to the provinces. "The main argument the federal government uses to justify its retention of the vast majority of income and corporation tax revenues is that it needs these to be able to manage the economy ... If the last few years are indictive of its abil- ity to manage the economy, then we would be much better off having 10 regional governments working at cross purposes." Mr. Strom said if the need for more fiscal autonomy for the provinces is ignored, Canadian federalism soon will lose any of the meaning it originally had. "The inferior position of the provincial governments, in relation to their fiscal capabilities is one of the most serious problems facing Canadian federalism." Ottawa, he said, should start to set its priorities straight. It should attempt to develop expertise in economic matters in-areas of provincial jurisdiction. Child labor act often violated EDMONTON " (CP) - Offences occur against Alberta's Child Labor Act because employers do not want to know the' regulations of the act, Frank Cambridge, information officer for the department of labor, said here. "On occasion we find under-aged children working in small towns washing dishes or working in a restaurant," Mr. Cambridge said. "But their mothers and fathers and even police officials in these towns are not aware this is an offence." The act states that a child trader 15 years of age may work with parental consent and provided the job is not "injurious to life, limbs health, education or morals." "The problem is how to decide whether a job is injurious to the child's health or his morals," said Mr. Cambridge. "Many instances of abuse" are found, but the incidents are "borderline cases and very hard to prove." Mr. Cambridge said, "to my knowledge, there have been no prosecutions taken against any employer since I started working here 15 years ago. EATON'S SWITCHBOARD TO REMAIN OPEN UNTIL 5:30 P.M.
