...asks fourth shot
By PHILIP POWER
Dr. Jonas Salk suggested yes-
terday the use of a fourth shot of
polio vaccine to insure complete
immunity against paralytic polio.
Speaking at the symposium on
the effectiveness of the polio vac-
cine, he added, however, that the
"number one priority is still to
get some vaccine into everybody.
The suggestion of a fourth shot
should not change this in the

also participated in the sympo-
Dr. Salk noted that some of the
commercial vaccine produced was
not as potent as that made in his
own laboratory. Only three shots
of the weak vaccine will not raise
polio antibodies to a sufficient
level to effectively prevent the
disease, he said.
Dr. Salk said that his experi-
ments showed that a fourth shot
provided the needed boost in anti-
The fourth shot would only be
used until the commercial firms
have developed their production
techniques to the point where they
can make a sufficiently potent
vaccine to produce immunization
with only three shots.
Dr. Langmmuir noted that, "The
conquest of paralytic polio is in
sight through universal immuniza-

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (P) - Seven
Air Force students perished in
their sleep yesterday and 13 others
were injured in a wild scramble to
flee wind-whipped flames that
made an inferno of a barracks
dormitory at Syracuse University,
Twenty-five airmen escaped
without injuries of consequence,
mostly by jumping through win-
dows of the one-story building.
Firemen, battling in near zero
weather at 6 a.m., kept the flames
from spreading to the 14 other
barracks of a university housing
development atop a hill overlook-
ing the city.
The 45 men, many of them in
their teens, had just been assigned
to the university for a nine-month
course in Russian. Their head-
quarters is Wright-Patterson Air
Force Base, Dayton, Ohio, where
they are attached to the Air In-
stitute of Technology.
Fire officials said the fire ap-
parently started from an oil-fed

Peter Dowling, 25 years old, of

Many of the injured were cut
and bruised, as well as burned.

A wish to help an 11-year polio patient caused Carole Jenkins,
'6OEd, to be chosen "Campus Queen for a Day" yesterday afternoon on
the nationally televised program.
Carole's wish was that Euline "Corkey" McCorkle, 22 years old,
would get an electric wheel chair. Carole said "Corkey" was too weak
to operate an ordinary wheel chair, but could operate the control
buttons of an electric one.
Carole was given a reported $10,000 worth of prizes including a
Simca car and a Paris vacation during spring recess. Besides the car
and vacation Carole was awarded a stereophonic phonograph, for
which she had been saving for a long time.
Overwhelmed with Joy
"I have never had a day like this in my life," she said.
Her room mate, Wendy Harris, '60Ed, who is going with her to
Paris, seemed more excited than Carole. But after she saw the ward-
robe that Carole had won, she jokingly said, "I don't want to go with
you to Paris, you're too well dressed."
Carole had met "Corkey" a year ago while visiting the University's
