There are reports, going back to the 1870s of occasional strand-lngs along the shores of Cook Strait of giant squid, fearsome creatures with plate-sized eyes, bodies 10 feet across with 10 tentacles up to 25 feet, long.

This Is a 6,000-foot deep canyon connecting the Palliser Bay end of the strait with the Pacific Ocean. , Cook Strait Is the turbulent stretch of water between the north and south islands of New Zealand. The idea of a giant mousetrap was suggested U- the New Zea-landers by marine scientists of the Danish research ship Gala-thca. The object would be to catch one of the monsters of the depths and bring It alive to the surface. The Giant trap,: of the wire cage type, Is simple In principle, but difficulties J of working it under water at a great pressure have kept it: In the planning stage. Scientific minds in the university's zoology department are weighing other possibilities. One is the conventional basket-type trap, left baited on the fringe of the underwater canyon.

He declared that contraction of polio through association with children who already have received Salk immunity injections "Is so highly improb able as hardly to merit con sideration." , The question of "association cases'" arose as Dr. salk, developer of the vaccine, appeared in company with 14 other of the nation's foremost polio authorities before a House Commerce Subcommittee. "It is clear that children who receive properly prepared vaccine do not transmit disease to adults, because they do not have the disease," Salk told the congressmen. Then under further questioning by Rep. Hayworth (D-Mich) who said authorities of one New Jersey community ordered vaccinated children to keep away from school as potential carriers of polio, Dr. Salk declared there was no evidence to support association contraction. "Not if the children . receive properly prepared vaccine," he said." But Dr. Salk conceded there seems to be an association" between contraction : of polio by others who have come In contact with children receiving improperly made vaccine. Public Health Service statistics on polio incidence have shown a considerable number of cases among persons associating with others who have received vaccine, j Earlier in the hearing the question was raised whether the Salk vaccine as now manufactured might produce kidney ailments. Dr. Salk said he had determined experimentally that it would not have any effect on the human kidney. But doubts were expressed by some other physicians among 15 outstanding researchers in the field of virus medicine. Chairman Priest (D-Tenn) of the House group arranged the session with the idea, he said, of "creating a renewed and well-informed confidence in the program"; The ' discussion developed that some residual protein from monkey kidney material remains in the vaccine under present manufacturing processes. The polio virus needed for the vaccine is grown in monkey kidney. .
