the famous vaccine developed by Dr Jonas E Salk of Pittsburgh The Salk vaccine scheduled for mass hu man tests soon inactivates the vi ruses with formaldehyde The suntan vaccine produced antibodies

Chicago told the American Public Health Assn at its annual meeting 30 included afew persons who before vaccinationhad no de tectable antibodies against one or more of the types of virus Usual ly the vaccine brought a fourfold increase in antibodies any of the volunteers had from previous un known exposure to polio The key to a safe vaccine is to render the polio virus powerless to cause sickness

the constitu tional division of the executive and legislative branches of the gov ernment Informar Efforts There were indications that some informal efforts were under way to eliminate conflicts between the Senate subcommittee headed by Sen Jenner and the House committee It was plain the committee was out to put formally on the record Byrnes that he saw such an FBI report talked with Truman about it and suggested that Truman withdraw Whites nomination for the monetary post On its face this apparently clashes with Trumans assertions that White was fired as soon as it was learned he was wrong White took the monetary post in early 1346 and servedfor over a year So far as the public record goes White then resigned volun tarily However Truman has said that White was fired by asking for his resignation The Seriate groups move only one indication that congres sional Republicans were preparing to dig into every corner of the contraversy touched off when Atty Gen Brownell declared last

sections and that the part purportedly per taining to White had gone to the Treasury Department but not to the State Department made to put Miss Bentley back into her Communist espionage con tacts No move was made all year by the FBI against White or any other suspect In line with usual practice theagency did not want to arouse the suspicions of persons on whom it was checking However by
