Commenting on the rate reduction plan, Councilman Laur suggested that the council reduce the rate 10 per cent May 1 this year, then vote the further reduction May 1 of 1970 if possible. "I would rather do it that way than vote the 20 per cent cut originally, then perhaps have to go back on a promise in 1970 if we can't give the second 10 per cent reduction."

Smoking, Kissing In Campus Test GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) University of Florida researchers feel antiflu masks may offer protection against campus nooghers, but student volunteers will have to decide if it's worth impeding eating; smoking—and kissing. They will carry out an experiment to determine whether masks can prevent the spread of Hong Kong flu and other winter viruses. Specialists in the College of Medicine predict that by mid- January about two weeks after the 19,800 students assemble for the winter quarter beginning unxt Monday—about 30 per cent of tlie student body will be infected by flu. In cooperation with Dr. Wilmer Coggins, student health director, a team from the College of Medicine will ask certain students to wear blue and white surgical masks at all times when they are in public place for a period of a few weeks. The masks filter out airborne droplets of saliva, which may contain Hong Kong flu and other viruses.
