Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Site of agricultural laboratory Monday, October 25, 1971 THE IUHBRIDG! HERALD Reporters allowed to make tour of forbidden island By JOHN HARBOUR ___ PLUM ISLAND, N.Y. (AP) This is a forbidden island, jut- ting into the Atlantic. It is sepa- rated from the mainland by the riled, ripping waters of Plum Gut, a channel so contrary that when wind and tide argue it can swamp a sizable sailboat. On the island's shore signs warn against all trespassers. Twenty-four hours a day guards patrol the lonely beaches. But this week for the first time in 15 years, the gates to Plum Island opened briefly to let the world see the potential havoc inside. For this island in Long Island Sound is the site of a U.S. de- partment of agriculture labora- tory tor infectious animal dis- eases, some so virulent that if they should jump the mile-wide water gap they could devastate U.S. livestock. The precautions that are rou- tine speak for the pestilence Plum island harbors. Scientists arriving on the is- land must shed their own clo- thing and don special laboratory wear. The same went for the handful of reporters who toured the laboratory last week. Each time a man leaves one laboratory for another he must shower with germicidal soap, scrub his fingernails with a brash and be rinsed down with high pressure sprays. Then he dons fresh clothing again. All personal items such as rings and watches must be left behind at the gate. Notebooks are steri- lized in a hot box before they can be lakcn to the mainland. Most scientists working in the laboratory take two or three showers a (lay. The record, held by one moving from lab to lab, was 18 in a single day. Each laboratory is so equipped that when a door opens all air travels from the outside in. All air exiting from the laboratories must pass through filters fine enough to trap bacteria. Waste water is run into holding tanks to be sterilized. Behind the red-painted doors are cattle, swine and sheep de- liberately infected with bacteria tetter means of diagnosis, and and viruses that plague so hopefully effective vaccines, many countries in the Stale and federal officials are foot and mouth disease, Vene- trained here in techniques of zuelan equine encephalomyelitis disease control and detection, and African swine fever, to: All who visit Ihe island do so mention only a few. j under more and more proscrip- The aim on Plum Island is I lion. They must stay away from all animal repositories such as farms and zoos for at least seven days after leaving the is- land. For those who work with the diseased animals and live on the mainland it means con- stant quarantine from such places. Securities market plan endorsed WASHINGTON (AP) The New York Stock Exchange en- dorsed today the concept of a i central securities market sys- tem embracing all United States regional stock exchanges, prov> ided all operate under equally severe regulatory rules. Robert W. Ilaack, NYSE pres- ident, proposed to the Securities and Exchange Commission that the big board's tape be replaced by a shared, multi-channel system reporting sales and prices of all transactions in all markets. He also testified, as a wliiicsa in SEC's broad inquiry into se- curities market practices, that trading has been siphoned away from the NYSE to some re- gional exchanges simply be- cause they enforce less rigorous standards for protection of ivestors.
