Figures Reveal Living Ain't Cheap BROOKS JACKSON .'Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) -- New Labor Department.figures show Boston has ^overtaken New York as Hie third, most ex- perfiive city for medium-budget American families. . Anchorage retains a'.firm grip on first place, and Honolulu holds second despite some relative slippage. Small Southern cities remain the cheapest urban ,places to live. These are among the findings of ins Bureau of Labor Sfatis- tics^ ! urban family budgets, up- datetl- Wednesday for the first time in a year and a half. During that time the national average cost of maintaining an intermediate standard of living for a family of four rose 2.0 per cent to $10,971 a year. Tiie cost of a more austere standard rose 3.5 'per cent to $7,214, ami the cost of a higher standard, providing more comfort and luxuries, rose 2.5 per cent to $15,905. Consumer prices rose 6.3 per cent during the same period, but lower income (axes helped keep total budget cosls.down. The lower, budgel provides for rental housing without air conditioning and meals.that are nutritious but feature mostly low-cost meat and meat substitutes. The higher budget provides for a higher rate of home ownership, a new car every four years for most families and more and bolter food, clothing, furniture and household appli- nces. The figures are updalcd to last fall. Previous figures were tor the spring, 1970. During that time the costs of an intermediate budget in Anchorage remained at a solid 136 per cent of the national average. Honolulu slipped from 120 .0 119. Fourth-place Boston shot ip from 113 to 117, overtaking bird-place New York, where relative costs went up more slowly from 1H to 115. Places where costs now match the national average are Baltimore, Los Angeles, Kansas City, St. Louis and Green Bay Wis. Lowest urban costs were recorded in Southern towns of from 2,500 to 50,000 population. They averaged only 84 per cent of the national norm. Other low-cost cilies included Austin, Tex,, 80 per cent; Orlando, Kla., 88; and Atlanta, 89. The department gives no figures for farm areas. The Labor Department says :t has no measures of income hat arc precisely appropriate to compare to the three budgets. One widely used measure of income, average weekly earnings for rank-and-lile production workers, stood at S131.73 last month, or almost 56,850 for a full work year. This is $365 below Iho department's tower budget, sometimes called in austerity or subsistence budget. \$servqtions. Have Been Unable til o Attract Business, Industry By MICHAEL RUBIN Associated Presi Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) - For several years American Indians have been trying to attract business and industry lo thir reservations, hut have been "less the results than overwhelming," an Indian leader said Wednesday. There are about 251) busi- business and industry to their reservations in the United Stales, but most are very small, such as service stations. "In terms of impact and development we're a long way from home," said Leon Cook, president of Ihe National Con- grcÂ§Â§ of American-,. Indians. "Most businessmen think Indian country is remote and in- acce^sjble^Thcy .don't want : fo le^vej;'. : faniiliar surroundings ancfcjty..' conveniences."

"Indians don't want lo leave their communities and we've found most of those who have gone to the city for jobs would prefer lo return," he said. Unemployment on reservations ranges from 20 to 85 pel- cent, said Cook, and "although it's a deplorable rate liie actual numbers on each reservation aren't always substantial cause most reservations small." be- There arc about one million American Indians, about half living on reservations. The NCAI represents two thirds of those on reservations, Cook said. "What we've got to do is build a middle class economy and environment on Ihe reservation, generate a middle class, and then we'll have a situation in which Ihe average businessman would feel comfortable," he said.

Chicken-Hating Scientists Learning About Cancer Virus From Same Chickens By ALTON BLAKESUEE Associated Press Science Editor ST. PETERSBURG, Kla. (AP) -- Two scientists who hale chickens are learning, From those same chickens, new insights into viruses thai cause ancers. A main finding is lhal one virus can enhance or boost the cffccls of a second virus. While no viruses have yet jeen proved to cause human cancers, the research is adding lo such suspicions as these: --That what ultimately hap- !cns lo you from various virus nfeclions may depend upon which virus came visiting you first. --Prior und of infection virus might confer some protection against later nfection with a cancer-causing vims. Or Ihe inilial infection might boost the cancer-causing power of a second virus. For example, some scientists hink that an attack of in- edioiis niononucleosis,-the so- called "kissing disease," might make people less susceptible to eukemia later in life, if it turns oul that leukemia is really caused by a virus. The scientists who dislike chickens are Drs. Vincent jroupe and Jack W. Frankel, .he director and deputy direc- or of Life Sciences, Inc., a re- iearch and development labora- '.ory here. Some 600 chickens are continually being reared and main- ained in the laboratory, and over yews of close familiarity jroiipe and Franke! have come o regard chickens with a good deal less affeclion than for a 'amily pet, even to Ihe point of referring not to have chicken dinners at home. Bui the chickens are a key to iome basic research because hey have been bred to be virus md germ free, or al least free of specific viruses known to be nvolvcd in cancers in chickens. This had taken generations of ireeding under aseptic condi- 'ions, in research supported by he Special Virus Cancer Program of Ihe National Cancer nsiilule. The result is chickens, and heir eggs, free from viruses ike (he one thai causes Mark's, disease, a form of solid cukcmia in chickens, bringing )n paralysis and tumors within "our to six weeks.

If vir'us-free chickens are inoculated wilh Marek's virus, they don't gel paralysis or tumors--they simply keel over and die within two weeks. This raises the question whether some "activator" virus has lo be present for Marek type cancer to develop, Groupe says, adding the role of mixed viral infections leading to cancer has never been considered before.' might act against cancer-causing and other viruses. "We are searching for and have found a few antibiotics that show some activity against viruses, including oncogcnic ( c a n c c r-producing) ones," Groupe says. Tlie antivirus activity has been demonstrated both in cell cultures and experimental ani mals. There is a long road ahead to learn whether the compounds work in humans w i l h satisfactory safety, Groupe says. ALK1RK . For all your kindness and Miuuglilfiilness -- for your expressions of sympathy in so many ways -- fur your pruyorBj lood, (lowors and donations to the American Cancer tjuciely -- for all these and much movo tliuu words can ever say in tliis time ot our sorrow, we are deeply Kratcnil and ( h a n k you from the Ijollom nt our hearts. The family of Clifford Alkire Using tissue virus-free eggs, cultures of) Grou|e and Frankel injected them with Marck's virus and wilh Avian leucosis Virus--A VL--which causes a cancer in chickens. They found that prior infection wilh AVL interfered with (he ability of Marek's virus lo cause changes in living cells. But (he mixture produced more AVL particles than would result from growing Avian Leucosis Virus alone in the testtubes. Its action was 'enhanced. Thus, one virus may be a cause and another the activator in a cancer process. Kindred experiments now are being conducted in virus-free chickens. But far more than chickens isi involved in the studies. The Marek virus is a herpes virus, belonging to the f a m i l y of viruses that cause ordinary cold sores and the nerve disease called shinkles. A herpes virus has been implicated in some cancers of the cervix in women. And in many ways, Marek's resembles a virus, the Epstein- Borr or E.I5. virus, implicated in a human leukemia known as Burkilt's lymphoma. Chicken studies may show a way of answering whether E.B. virus is a cause or a "helper" in the human disease. E.B. virus is known to be the cause of infectious cleosis, raising (he mononu-| question! whether that.disease might be! an incipient' leukemia from! which (he patient recovers,! Groupe remarks.
