Sunday Telegram, Oct. 5, 1980 Homosexual men aid in fight against hepatitis Gay men make an ideal study group because they are abouLJD) times more likely than other people to get hepatitis in part because they tend to have many sex partners. The high rate of-ki-fection means doctors can smaller group and still be sure'the vaccine works. In New York, the Gay Men's Health Project, a Greenwich Village venereal disease screening clinic, helped find the trial and was the site for mwst vaccinations. Dr.

Wolf Szmuness, coordinator of the study, credited cooperation from New York gay groups with helping to make the test a success. "Once the vaccine is licensed, the U.S. public really should congratulate the gay community," said Dr. Donald Francis of the U.S. Center for Disease Control's Hepatitis Division in Phoenix, Ariz.

Francis helps run a similar testing program with more than 1,000 homosexuals in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Denver and St. Louis. Technicians extract the liquid part of the blood, called plasma, which contains the virus, and the rest is returned to the donor's body. The also is carried in the saliva, semen and milk. Homosexuals also were the volunteers in the first large-scale study of the vaccine.

Results of the test on 1,083 New York men were announced last week. They showed the vaccine virtually eliminates the risk of hepatitis the most serious of the three known forms of the viral liver disease. causes one of the world's most stubborn and widespread diseases. Yet Cole, 30, is proud to make the donation. An avowed homosexual, he is among thousands of gay men across the country who have helped in the development of a new vaccine that makes hepatitis a preventable disease.

"I had what felt like a bad case of the, flu this was in 1978 so I went to a doctor and took a test and he said, "You have Basically, since then it's been one long recovery," said Cole last NEW YORK (AP) Once every or so, Charles Cole presents himself at the New York Blood tenter for technicians to jab his vein with a needle and remove' about two pints of precious blood. He's paid well for the privilege $50 a session. But Cole volunteered for the bloodletting before he knew there was any money involved. It's not that Cole's blood some rare curative power. Quite the opposite.

It carries circulating particles of a virus that Blacks, Klan hold Technology seen jas major influence week as he lay in a blood donor's chair. Cole is among the 10 percent of the estimated 200,000 U.S. hepatitis victims a year who become chronically infected, and now he's a hepatitis "carrier." It is from Cole's blood and the blood of hundreds of others like him that Merck Sharp Dohme, a pharmaceutical company, makes the experimental vaccine which could be jiarketed by 1982.

The Worldwatch Institute study said that by the late 1980s the 'electronics industry will rival the automobile, steel and chemical industries in sales and economic importance. "The economic and social impact "of microelectronics will extend 1 well beyond the confines of the industry itself," said Colin Norman, of the study by the private, I non-profit research group. "No technology in history has had such a broad range of potential applications in the Norman said in an interview. The industry is based on the ability to put thousands of electronic components and circuits on silicon chips smaller than a dime. 'This has slashed the size and cost of electronic equipment and computers.

And these chips, or microprocessors, are found in products as diverse as digital watches, pocket calculators, sewing machines, cars and industrial robots, with more uses to come.

Three blacks were arrested and charged with carrying concealed weapons, but they apparently were not part of either march, said police Sgt. Perry Martin. U.S. draft will resume, says Ellsberg BOSTON (AP) Anti-war activist Daniel Ellsberg told a group of 1,200 protesters Saturday that the United States would resume the military draft soon after the November presidential election no matter who is elected.

Ellsberg, the featured speaker at an anti-draft rally on Boston Common, said only an immediate outpouring of popular opposition could stop a resumption of the draft. "The meaning of this draft (registration) is to support the current administration, through the election, in the threat to use nuclear arms in the Persian Gulf," Ellsberg said at an informal news conference. "These people are being asked to sign up and be willing to be the nuclear tripwire." Organizers of the rally admitted they were disappointed by the turnout on a sunny, seasonably warm day.

She was a communicant of St. Mary's Church this technology, Japan is moving to the forefront in some areas and European governments are beginning to stimulate their electronic industries, the report said.

Governments see that they have little choice but to support their high technology industries in the competitive world economy, but little has been done to counter potential negative effects, Norman said. He said microelectronics, with its promise of greater efficiency and productivity, would create jobs in industries that deal in electronic goods and services, such as computer manufacturing and programming. But jobs will be lost in industries that switch from mechanical processes and goods to new ones based upon electronics, which have fewer moving parts and are easier to assemble. This also applies to white-collar jobs, he added, such as those affected by computerized office equipment. "Most studies seem to indicate that over the long term, job losses will be greater than those created," Norman said.

Norman said that job losses could be balanced by new jobs only if economic growth were high and major industries expanding. However, high energy prices, inflation, low rates of productivity, and growing protectionism in international markets make it unlikely that the post-World War II boom will return, he said. transfers Plozp, Elmira, to Anthony F. and Aflarv I.

HORSEHEADS, N.Y. 14845 PHONE: 607-739-3594 Functional Features You Should Know About Wood Stove Airtight designed stoves ore thought to have the ideal combustion chamber for the ultimate in fuel conservation. We do not dispute the need for fuel conservation, but want to explain why airtight construction is not necessary, and may in fact not be practical. Consider that there is only a specific amount of heat in a given quantity of wood, whether that wood is burned slowly or rapidly. The quantity of wood you have to burn is directly related to the amount of BTU's required to heat a specific area.

While some airtight pro- portents claim their stoves can hold a fire for 1 4 to 1 8 hours, experience has shown us that trying to maintain a comfortable temperature on a cold night with a smoldering fire is high-'" 'y unlikely. The important thing to consider is how much heat you need from a heating stove to maintain adequate warmth in your home, according to the size of your home and your personal needs for warmth. Another problem with airtight stoves is creosote. When the chimney cools to the point at which the smoke condenses and collects on the interi of your chimney, the product is creosote. This occurs in airtight stoves when the draft is shutt off for long periods and does not allow enough air to support proper combustion.

This in turn creates a smoldering eon-' dition. This smoldering fire does not produce enough heat to maintain chimney wall tern peratures above the creosote forming level, as a result of lower chimney temperatures and the lack of air to remove the smoldering gases and smoke, they condense on the chimney walls. If this condition continues, there can be a massive buildup of thick combustible soot and the stage is set for a flue fire. 2 Fire-View wood heaters are designed to be non-airtight so that air entering the firebox around the window frame, does not generally aid the combustion of fuel. Rather, the air HUNTER, Mr.
