Califano ends ban
on flu vaccines

(Continued from Page 1)
As a team, the women spend
two hours a day, six days a;
week in practice drills during.
the basketball season, as well
as hours of individual training.
If that seems like a taxing
schedule for a sport in which
Klomparens ' contends "there's
no future for women ... no
chance to- play on the profess
sional level," then the women
must have deeper motives for
commitment.
"WE TAKE OUR game very
seriously," she says. "That's
the whole thing about competi-
tion. We like to go out and
win, and we sure don't give,
up if we don't."
In addition to the rigors ofC
practice, the women must en-
dure a four-month, 20-game
schedule, complete with Christ-
mas and post-season tourna-
ments and long road trips -
all of which are negotiated in
unglamorous vans rather than
the chartered jets their maleI
counterparts enjoy.
"Sure it gets tough at times,"
she admits - a complaint com-
mon to male cagers as well.
"Those road trips can really
get to you, and there's times
when you wonder why you're
doing it all."
"BUT IN A WAY, it can help,"
she adds brightly. "Basketball
forces me to study and budget
my time. I consider myself a
student first, out of necessity."
One problem she has never
encountered throughout her var-
sity career is overexposure. De-
spite her status as a three-year
starter, not once has she been
forced to elbow her way through
a mob of sports-hungry auto-
graph seekers. Never has she
been bothered by strangers, ask-
ng her if she isn't Carol Klom-
parens, the basketball star.
"No, that's never happened

to me," she laughs. "I supposej
that I'd be flattered if it ever
did."
AND ACCORDINGLY, a womn-
en's basketball ticket is"far
from the hottest commodity on
campus. But cavernous Crisler
Arena does provide a cozy atmo-
sphere for the handful of spec-
tators who ring the court in
choice spots with a sea of emp-
ty seats behind them.
Playing before snarse gather-
ings, however, is less than ideal
for the players, but the women
Imust endure the empty seats
for the time being.
"We like to play in front of
lots of fans," she says. "The
crowd is a big part of it all.
Without the fans, our program
is nothing but a glorified I.M.
game.
"WE'D STILL PLAY if no-
body showed up for our games,
because we love the game. But
it's just not the same."
Recently, Klomparens has tak-,
en her talents from the arena
to a local high school where she
is a student teacher filling re-
quirements for her physical edu-
cation major.
"Once in a while, some of the
kids would come up to me and
say that they came and saw me
play," she says. "Any small bit
of satisfaction like that makes
you feel good."
BUT THERE ARE hardships.
Commonplace facilities such as
locker rooms are often hard to
come by, forcing the women to
arrive at the game dressed and
ready to play. It's also hard to
obtain equipment and uniforms.
Klomparens has made a much
greater sacrifice. A knee injury
two years ago threatened her
career, and she underwent sur-
gery to correct the problem.
Then, after playing as a start-I
er for three straight seasons,
she found herself warming the'
bench this year with the arrival'
of a new crop of freshwoman
talent.
Nevertheless, she has no
qualms about being an athlete
who must live without applause.I
"There's no doubt about, it,"
she says. "The people you meet,
plus the enjoyment you get out
of competing, more than makes'
up for it. I wouldn't have come
back for four years if I didn't
feel it was worth it."

WASHINGTON (R) - The Department of
Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) lifted
its moratorium on two flu vaccines yesterday.
The department recommended that the eld-
erly and people with chronic illnesses get a
shot that could protect them from both the
swine flu and the A-Victoria strain.
The HEW action also allows the use of an-
other vaccine intended to protect against the
milder B-Hong Kong flu.
THE MORATORIUM remains in. effect,
however, for the swine flu-only vaccine that
was widely promoted for all Americans be-
fore December.
Although only three cases of swine flu have
been found, an outbreak of A-Victoria last
week in a Dade County, Fla. nursing home is
blamed for 57 illnesses and four deaths. Yes-
terday's moratorium removal came as a re-
sult of that outbreak.
The swine flu program was halted Dec. 16
after indications that the vaccine was related
to occurrences of Guillain-Barre syndrome,
a sometimes fatal paralysis that hit vaccinat-
ed persons more often than the rest of the
population.
HEW SECRETARY Joseph Califano told a
news conference that elderly individuals and
others with chronic illnesses have a high risk
of suffering serious- adverse consequences if
they get the flu. "It is particularly important

. to reach such persons who are in, nursing
homes and health care institutions where in-
fluenza can spread most rapidly."
The secretary said the experts who advised
him to lift the moratorium concluded in es-
sence that "the risks of serious illness or,
death resulting from A-Victoria, flu, especial-
ly for the elderly and o:hers with chronic ill-
nesses, were far greater than the risks of in-
curring the Guillain-Barre Syndrome."
More than 40 per cent of the high risk pop-
ulation, about 20 million people, were im-
munized against A-Victoria and swine flu
before the moratorium was imposed.
NO ONE can say with certainty that the
high risk group or any other will get the flu
this year, but the outbreak in Florida and
reports of a similar outbreak in southwest-
ern Canada raised the strong possibiilty that
an epidemic could engulf the country this
year.
An epidemic of A-Victoria was blamed for
11 000 deaths last year.
Although the moratorium has ended, it may
be as much as a week before the vaccine will
be available to people in some areas of the
country.
New consent forms explaining the risk of
contracting Guillain-Barre Syndrome must be
approved at various levels of government and
sent to doctors and health physicians around
the country before the vaccinations can re-
sume.

vision-radio audience, in an aud-
itorium next door to the White
House.
Questions about the handling
of arms negotiations with the
Soviets dominated the session,
with Carter disclosing for the
first time that he has asked
Moscow to abandon the deploy-
ment of hard-to-detect mobile
missile launchers, used for mis-
siles of less than intercontinent-
al range. He also suggested each
country give the other advance
notice of any planned testing
of intercontinental missiles.
HE SAID THEY SHOULD be-
gin with a quick agreement on
a treaty to limit 'the number
of their strategic missiles and
bombers - setting aside' for
future talks their differences

Acareer in law-
without law school.
What can you do with only a bachelor's degree?
Now there is a way to bridge the gap between an
undergraduate education and a challenging, respon-
sible career. The Lawyer's Assistant is able to do
work traditionally done by lawyers.
Three months of intensive training can give you
the skills-the courses are taught by lawyers. You
choose one of the seven courses offered-choose
the city in which you want to work.
Since 1970, The Institute for Paralegal Training
has placed more than 1600 graduates in law firms,
banks, and corporations in over 75 cities.

Carter also disclosed that dur-I
ing a meeting earlier in the
day with Huang Chen, chief of
the People's Republic of China's
liaison office in Washington, that
the subject of reducing depend-
ence of the superpowers on nu-
clear weapons was discussed.
"He told me very clearly that
the goal of the Chinese govern-
ment was to reduce dependence
on nuclear, weapons to zero,"
Carter said.,
Carter also expressed com-
plete confidence in Paul Warnke,
his nominee to be the nation's
chief disarmament negotiator.
Despite some Senate opposition
to his choice, he predicted
Warnke "will be approved over-
whelmingly."
ON THE DOMESTIC scene,
Carter said he is confident that
Congress will produce an ac-
ceptable version of his program
to perk up the economy, butt
added he will not hesitate to ex-
ercise the veto when he decides
it is warranted.
With some congressional Dem-
ocrats pressing for a sharp ex-
pansion of his $31.2 billion pro-
gram of tax cuts and jobs, Car-
ter said he anticipates some
amendments but believes they
will be acceptable.
"If such drastic changes were
made in it that would cause
vie to doubt its effectiveness or
its adviseability, I would of
course veto it," he said.
CARTER ALSO SAID he op-C
posed nationalization of the oil
industry and said his, forthcom-
ing energy policy would re-
quire "substantial sacrifices on

In an indirect comment on
congressional plans to double
the $2 billion he has asked for
public works jobs, Carter said,
"There is a limit to how much
you can spend on public works
without wasting money."
Reflecting on his first days
in office, Carter admitted 14&'s

congressional leaders cause 'for
complaints, saying "I have

a half weeks why Abraham Lin-
coln and some of the other
Presidents almost went home

raised opposition to the residen-

has more people living here
who work elsewhere than work-
ing here and living elsewhere,
he argued. "Are we going to
tell them to move out?"
The contract package was ap-
proved unanimously.
Police chief Walter Krasny
said he could foresee no diffi-
culty recruiting new officers as
a result of the requirement.
I WAS FAMILIAR with this
part of the contract," Krasny
said. "We have applicants (for
the police department) from all
over Michigan and they usually
say they are willing to move
to Ann Arbo."
The new POA contract also
includes 25 per cent pay raises
for patrol officers over a three-
year period. The increases will.
amount to nearly $1,000 a year
for rookie patrol officers - and
$1,500 for veterans.
The minimum patrol' salary
is now $10,835. Under the new
contract, it will rise to $12,83
July 1 and $13,744 July 1, 1978.
