The machine was crammed with accident data Saturday ter it produced its analysis o! where the most accidents were likely to occur, 10 motorcycle policemen went to the area am patrolled it for eight hours. "We don't know if we actually prevented any accidents," said Lt. Quentin Weaver. "All we know is that we had 10 accidents a year ago and none Saturday." THEIR SEPARATION ENDS - Twins Roger D.

Both are six feet, 3 inches tall; Milasi weighs 210 and Brooks 208. Both have brown hair and blue eyes. JVeto Virus Strain Discover Culprit In Flu Epidemic By FRANK CAREY i WASHINGTON (AP) - Discovery of two new strains of influenza virus—witn all indications that one of them was largely responsible for itii& winter's widespread flu epidemics—was disclosed taday. The new strains were identified too late for this season's vaccine to include extra guards against them, it was learned. One is a new and potent form of the Asian flu virus which first appeared in 1957. This new strain is the one held mainly responsible for this year's udbreak of flu— with the available vaccine having only limited power against it, Public Health Service doctors told a reporter. Studies have indicated that in animals, the present vaccine affords no protection at all against the new virus, they said Preliminary evidence ftvm human studies is that this winter the vaccine showed "appreciably less" than its usual 75 per "ent efficiency— presumably because of the new virus. Influenza cases have been unusually severe this winter, often lasting up to two weeks instead of the usual throe or four days. School absenteeism has ranged up to 73 per cent of pupils in some schools. Death rales from pneumonia, complicated by flu, have been unusually h'gli among the elderly in some communities. The other newcomer to the elusive brigade of viruses is a new strain of type B influenza virus. Type B and type -\ are the two major types of flu virus. Each has several sub-strains So far, the new B-type strain appears to have been confined to a single schoolhouse in Formosa where it was iirst detected last November. Scientists of the National Institutes of Health say it has the potential for spreading through the world next winter. An example of this swift spreading is the new strain of Asian flu virus which NIH researchers said first. appeared in Tokyo in January 1962. It wasn't until last June, when sample? of the virus were obtained from abroad by Nffl's Division of Biologic Standards, that first strong evidence was obtained that this was a new strain of Asian flu. It wasn't confirmed until November. It was too late to include the new virus in the vaccine to be used in preparation for the winter of 1962-1963. Milli.wis of doses of vaccine had already been manufactured and distributee}. It would have taken up to six months to tool up for inclusion of the new strain. Also, scientists still couldn't be sure the new strain would hit the United Slates, although there was evidence it had cropped up in Formosa and New Zealand as well as Japan. REVIVAL Church of Nazarene Special Musicians MARCH 6 thru 17 7:30 p.m. Each Evening Meanwhile, an experimental vaccine employing the n«l,' virus was developed it NIH. In tests on human volunteers, including more than 100 federal prisoners, the vaccine gave, indications of protective value. . } , How did the new strains of virus develop? No one really knows. One concept is chat such mutations may result partly from • natural adaptation of the virus to some threat to its existence, such as vaccine, Nature's own radiations — including cosmic rays—may be another factor, scientists say. Radiation from nuclear tests is still another possibility, "although, at present, there is no way to prove this—or disprove it." cheaffers chool SPECIAL! Fountain PEN with Ink Cartridge $1.00 John G.
