Roberge of Caldwell arc defendants in a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Third District Court, seeking $155,000 in damages. The plaintiffs are Kent and Pst,.; .^ ,,,,,, r facilities such as Ihe Caldwell experiment station for large animal work. The station itself, and a new- building to be constructed there prior lo 1977, won't be used until 1977 to house vet students doing large animal work but Ihe benefits of having a vet school nearby are already being realized by area livestock men. Notes Hall: "The work these two researchers have done already is terribly significant in their respective fields. This kind of work couldn't have taken place without agreement between the two stales." WSU was pushed into such a pact due lo the lack of'available large animals in Washington of flatworm--a parasite--that lives in Ihe bile ducts and eats its way through the animal's liver. Lang adds that this usually proves fatal to young sheep, is very damaging to mature sheep and renders the liver of callle valueless and, in fact, can prevent an animal from attaining normal weight growth which, in turn, costs the farmer money. Lang's experiment--producing experimental infections in experimental cattle--is being done no where else in the United Slates but similar work is taking place in Austrialin, England and Czechoslovakia. Lang has been testing at the Caldwell station for the past year and calls Ihe results lo date "excellent. I have found an antibody to the liver fluke. The next step will be to infect some calves with liver flukes and vaccinate them to see if the antibody is for real." Both men, visitors to Caldwell Wednesday lo check on their experiments, said this valley is an ideal one for their experiments as well as most others involving large animals because "there is so much livestock from «i, fTM. n ;,,,,, , · i · ,v, s'ate- 11 needed a facility such as all over the country found right ask for a jury trial in the , he experiment station to enable in this area.

The two researchers, sometime down the road, plan to expand their work into Ihe economic effects of roundworm and liver flukes. Lang especially is anxious to do so.

He said SSTs require more that) twice as much fuel as standard subsonic jet, planes to move the fame number of passengers the same distance belter than with .the infected grOUP-" .·!·,,.;·'.. ... So. ; what, does that prove?.First, says Westcott, it shows that it is a waste of money lo vaccinate infected sheep. Second, wormy sheep are more susceptible to disease. "Right now," notes Weslcoll, "Ihe experiments are pretty general but il is a start. In a few months I will begin much more detailed and specialized experiments that should prove valuable to the sheep industry, both in termsof health and value of the animals." Dr. Bruce Lang, a professor of biology, is using the state of Washington's affiliation with the Caldwell station to examine liver fluke problems in sheep and cattle. Liver fluke is a type the College of Idaho. In addition the experiment station itself will experience a permanent growth in that six more fulltime professional staffers will be added as well as 12 fulltime technicians. And Westcolt sees advantages coming to the area far in advance of Ihe actual opening of the school. "We plan lo place s6me, ( .,io( .pur. ..i, aspiring -veterinarians -with local vets to. aid them in their preceptor program. I am very satisfied with the arrangement between the two states." Hall says the new vet building will be located on a 20-acre site at the corner of Homedale Road and Montana Avenue. U will have lab space,a surgery, drug room, stalls and office space.

A mother, who prefers to remain anonymous, thinks slie has hit on a partial solution to the problem. To wit: put a timer on the bathroom door. Start it running anytime anyone goes in for a shower. Under the system she proposes no one gets more than five minutes. Then an alarm goes off. ,, · To teen-agers who spend what seem like hours fn a shower, this is a drastic measure. But using less hot water will help the family and the nation, says the Mom. RICH JARVIS 222 8th Aye.
