Virus' 5 Is A Real Pain By ALTON BLAKESLEE Associated Press Science Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Is there a new virus around? It surely seems so to thousands of persons hit this winter by funny aches and pains and upset, including bloody noses blamed on "the bloody virus." Perhaps it's true that brand new. viruses have popped up, and might even start appearing at a faster rate, says Dr. Robert Huebner of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Scientists only recently identified most of 120 or more viruses known to cause colds, fevers, muscular aches and pains, diarrhea, coughs and runny noses—a great variety of mostly minor ailments. Man is their target, and man has evolved and multiplied over thousands of years. Biologically speaking, viruses had to evolve also—"They weren't all present the day man .was kicked out of paradise," says Dr. Huebner, director of the institute's laboratory of infectious diseases in Bethesda, Md. Influenza viruses change or mutate fairly frequently. Any flu vaccine has to incorporate the strain of virus blazing up into .an epidemic. Other respiratory and intestinal viruses also might be mutating during chain-reaction epidemics, reproducing more viruses in each person. ... Something could go amiss in the genetic assembly line so that a slightly different virus is produced from time to time. With more than three billion people in the world now, the chances could be greater that a new virus could appear, Heubner explains. There's no way yet to prove this. Peculiar illnesses this year could well be due to some old virus that hadn't been active in recent years in your locality. This year, for example, in some eastern cities many people gol bloody noses, beyond the expectation of slight bleeding due to injury to nasal membranes by colds, perhaps abetted by low humidity in heated houses. These people got real nosebleeds, sometimes along witl coughs, muscular aches and in testinal upsets. One nose and throat specialist called it the bloody virus." Ask Local Option Vote On Beer TOPEKA (AP)-Kansas prohibition leaders charged Tuesday that legal liquor sales are responsible for an increase in juvenile drinking and drunken driving. They testified before a joint session of the House State Affairs and Municipalities Committees The Rev. Arlon 0. Ebright, president of the Kansas United Drys, told the committees that the goal of that organization is "prohibition for the state and total abstinence for the individual." Witnesses claimed that drink' ing by juveniles has increased by 270 per cent the last five years, and that Kansas highways have become "slaughter houses." State prohibition was repealed in 194B. The drys also are supporting a bill to provide local option on the licensing of 3.2 beer sales. Rep. John Bower, R-McLouth a minister in private life, said: "It has been 16 years since the last vote on this question. The people should have a chance to express their views. There are many reasons to believe the tide has changed." THE OTTAWA HERALD 7 Wednesday, March 6, 1M3 ' Guilty Plea To Murder SHAWNEE, Okla.
