Hennigcr 327-7354 LIVESTOCK COMMISSION AGENTS ORDER BUYERS EXPORTERS By BRMN SLT.LIVAN NEW YORK (AP) A scien- tific controversy has erupted over a recent report by Texas scientists Uiat they had isolated a human cancer virus. Last July, a team of virus ex- perts at M. D. Anderson Hospi- tal and Tumor Institute in Hous- ton announced they had isolated a Type C virus from cells taken from a child with the cancer called Burkitt's lymphoma. The team was headed by Dr. Elizabeth S, Priori, and her ini- tials were used to name the virus Now, in the latest issue of the British scientic journal Nature, a group from the National Can- cer Institute of the United States has published a paper saving the virus is not a human virus, but a mouse virus. And the journal, in an unusual editorial, said the virus wrXNlFEG (CPi .lolin appeared to be "a red lien-ing." Kominowski, a 42-year-old wid- This editorial, in turn, waslmer who had his rignt arra ripped off three years ago in an industrial accident and then re-attached in a dramatic nine- hour operation, has lost the bat- tle for rehabilitation and had Ihe arm amputated. "It just got to the point where alt the trouble wasn't worth it anymore and we all decided that the arm should said Mr. Kominowski in an Inter- view. In what was described as a routine operation, the former mechanic's re-attached arm was amputated Aug. 17. The operation, carried out by Winnipeg orthopedic surgeon Dr. Percy Decter one of the doctors who re-attached the arm three years ago ended a struggle that began Jan. 27, 1968. Mr. Kominowski, a machine operator, got his arm caught in the drive belt of a tool-driv- ing machine and it was ripped off below tile elbow. A fire department rescue squad wrapped the severed arm in paper and took it lo hospital with Mr. Kominowski. In a nine hour operation that involved 15 doclors the arm was sewn back on. "I never got much out of the arm after it went back on and couldn't do much with my hand. The arm got inflamed and bothered me more as time went he said. Dr. Decter said the arm was finally amputaled because Mr. Kominowski's nerve supply to the lower arm and hand could riot be re-established. "The nerves were shredded In the area where the arm had been torn off." Dr. Declcr said surgeons In- volved in the operation, the second of its kind in Canadian medical history, did gain insights into this type o[ open, tion.

"I can fcrl my hand, mv fin- gers, my knuckles and my rl- bow as if the arm had never been taken off be said. Mr. Kominowski is unemploy- ed now. but is looking for a sales job. Many of those involved in the debate have left Ihe United States for a leukemia confer- ence in Padua, Italy, where the discussion is expected to con- tinue. The chief ol the special vims program at the National Cancer Institute, Dr. John B. Moloney, says it is premature to say who is correct and adds that it all is Perlich Livestock There were head of live- stock sold this week at Perlich Bros. Auction Market Ijtd.

The finding was an- nounced by Dr. Priori and Dr. Leon Dmochowski. huad of vi- rology at M. D. Anderson. An associate said they worked for a year lo make sure the virus was not a contaminant of their tissue culture. i But Nalure observed: "It is hard to avoid the conclusion lhat the virus they have found is anything other than a con- laminant and a red herring." Bowen, who said he was not directly involved in the work at M. D. Anderson, termed this "capricious and unfounded com- ment; it just seems to be irre- sponsible lo me." Bowen also said it would be extremely difficult for the tissue culture to have been contami- nated with an animal virus. Record corn production WASHINGTON (AP) The United States agriculture de- portment estimated Friday 1971 corn production at a record bushels, 58 per cent more than last year's blight- damaged crop but one per cent less than forecast in August. The average yield per acre was put at (12 bushels, compared with H3 bushels estimated last month and 71.7 harvested last year. Although subject to revision in future monthly reports, the new estimate, based on Sept. 1 field conditions, improved prospects for a bumper corn output de- spite some recurrence of soutn- em leaf blight in major produc- tion areas. Last year, due largely to a rapid spread of the blight, corn prospects dropped from 4.8 bil- lion bushels forecast in July to a final harvest of 4.1 billion. If realized the September esti- mate will far exceed the pre- vious record of "4.76 billion bushels harvested in 1967. The crop reporting board said total livestock feed grain pro- duction this year, including com, oats, barley and sorghurrr, is estimated at 198 million Ions, up 24 per cent from last year. In August the feed grain esti- mate was 200 million tons. Last year the total output was 159 million. Oil seed production was indl- Mocleod Livestock FORT MACLEOD On of- fer 735 cattle.
