Swine flu plan underway

Conflicting accounts
mark Postill hearing

WASHINGTON (P) -- The di-
rector of the government's
swine flu immunization pro-
gram said yesterday that Con-
gress has removed the last ma-
jor obstacle and the first shots
should be available in late Sep-
tember.

the attack, then gave them-
selves up.
When the El Al Boeing 707
landed in Tel Aviv, doctors
rushed aboard and ambulances
took away seven wounded pas-
sengers.
. THE EL AL PILOT, Yaacov
Roman, told the control tower
in Tel Aviv's Ben-Gurion Air-
port four guerrillas were in-
volved in the attack on the ter-
minal building in Istanbul,
sources at the airport in Israel
said.

The elderly and other" high-
risk persons suffering from
chronic diseases will not go to
the head of the line, however,
as had been planned originally,
said Dr. W. Delano Meriweth-
er.
"WE DON'T HAVE that lux-
ury anymore," he told the
Washington Press Club.
Time is growing short to im-
munize the U. S. populatiombe-
fore the influenza season, which
normally begins in November
and peaks between January-
and mid-February, he said.
When in full operation, he said,
the program should be immu-
nizing more than one million
persons a day.
Several months were lost be-
cause the four drug companies
making vaccine could not get
liability insurance, and would
not sell vaccine to the govern-
ment without it. New legisla-
tion, passed by Congress late
Tuesday and expected to be
signed by President Ford to-
day, makes the federal govern-
ment liable for alleged injuries
and deaths but empowers the

JusticemDepartment to counter-
sue manufacturers and public
health clinic doctors for negli-
gence.
"I DO NOT ANTICIPATE
any more obstacles," Meri-
wether said. Vaccine manufac-
turers anticipate little trouble
in getting negligence coverage
now since the government will
field all lawsuits and weed out
baseless injury claims.
About 120 million doses of
vaccine have been manufac-
tured in bulk form but it will
take five to six weeks to pack-
age it in bottles and vials, Meri-
wether said.
M ERIWETHER SAID
the vaccine is 75 to 95 per cent
effective in developing immun-
ity against swine flu, more pro-
perly called A-New Jersey in-
fluenza because it was first de-
tected last February among re-
cruits at Fort Dix, N. J. The
strain is believed to be similar
if not identical to the 1918-19
flu epidemic that killed 20 mil-
lion p e r s o n s worldwide and
548.000 in the United States.

to observing this. Most said
that Postill had tried to hand-
cuff Baysinger as part of an
arrest attempt.
Earlier in the day Bush
presented Postill's bloodstained
suit as evidence of injuries
given the sheriff during the
brawl. Although other witnesses
testified that they saw blood on
the sheriff's face and clothing
when he entered the hall from
the parking lot, Baysinger de-
nied seeing blood until after he
punched Postill in a later meet-
ing.
BUSH ALSO brought Baysing-
er's attorney Jack Garris (pre-
viously sequestered from the
courtroom) to the stand in an
attempt to prove that Baysinger
had changed his version of the
incident after consulting Garris.
Postill will be called to testify
today as a witness for his own
defense. The hearing is expect-

ed to continue through Friday
when Judge Henry Arkison will
decide if sifficient esidence has
been found to bring Postill to
trial.
Interesting facts
A continuing boundar dis-
pute between the U. S. and Mex-
ico in 1853 was settled when
J a m e s Gadsden, minister to
Mexico, was authorized by
President Pierce to purchase a
small piece of territory that
now forms the southern part of
Arizona and New Mexico.
