CARS DISPOSED OF
By PAULINE TOOLE
In 1918 a "Killer Disease"
struck the world: Swine Influ-
enza. It swept across the sur-
face of the earth, leaving over
20 million people dead.
It may be coming back. And
we may be totally unprepared
THE DISEASE, believed to
have been caused by a mutated
form of a virus common in hogs
(hence its name), could kill an
estimated 50 million persons in
the United States alone.
Research carried out in 1955
first yielded the observation that
individuals who contracted
Swine Influenza during the 1918
epidemic were immune to the
strain. This means that most
pefsons under 50 do not possess
the antibodies necessary to com-
bat the deadly virus.
And 50 million persons in this
country are considered "high
mortality risks" if they contract
it. These include those people
over age 55 who did not con-
tract the disease in 1918 and
those with heart and respiratory
ailments, diabetes or other de-
DR. FRED Davenport, head
of the Epidemiology Depart-
ment at the University School
of Public Health, was a member
of the original 1955 research'
team and is an expert on influ-
enza. He advocates the imme-
diate stockpiling of anti-Swine
"These influenza viruses re-
cur in cycles," he said. "They
keep cropping up-with modifi-
cations. It is very logical and
practical to consider stockpiling
Davenport states that the
knowledge and skill to protect
humanity from the Swine Virus
is available. "We have the tech-
nical know-how to make the'
vaccine, too," he adds. "Even
though we haven't made a com-
mitment for civilians, the Armed
Forces will be vaccinated."
THE TIME is short, however.
"If the virus is being seeded
now," says Davenport, "influ-
enza will develop in the fall of
1976. It makes sense to stock-
pile vaccine now. We have to
take this matter seriously."
The major obstacle to produc-
tion and storage of adequate
amounts of the vaccine seems to
be the problem of money. The
government would have to al-
locate funds, and it would cost
approximately $100 million to
carry out the stockpiling.
And of course, even though
the vaccine could be stored for
las long as 5 years, there is no:i
way of predicting with 100 per
cent accuracy that the Swine
Virus will strike next fall.
Davenport sums up the prob-
lem in this way: "If we stock-
pile vaccine and the flu doesn't
strike, we lose money. If we
don't stockpile vaccine and the'
flu strikes we lose lives. It's

BILLS STILL TO RISE:
LANSING (UPI) - In a de-I
cision extending far beyond
simple rate-making, the Michi-<
gan Public Service Commission t
has trimmed Detroit Edison'sI
request for a $178 million elec-
tric rate hike to $62.4 million. c
The action, approved on a 2-1 e
vote yesterday with Commis-I
sioner William Ralls dissenting,
will boost the average monthly
rate of Edison's residential cus-
tomers by 76 cents.
IN A blistering statement,
Edison said it 'would fight the
decision in the courts.

creative" decision by PSC Chair-'
man Daniel Demlow, it will

more electricity pay more in
