4B DISEASES Portugal Cracks Down on Media American* Lack Proper Immunity, Report Shows (C) .Yrir IWir. Time* Senic? ViASHLNGTON - Too few Americans are immunized against polio, diphtheria and other serious communicable diseases to protect the public from the risk of epidemics, a government agency has reported to Congress. The immunization levels also appear to be too low for measles, rubella, or german measles, and whooping cough, the General Accounting Office reported after a nine-state survey and review of data from the government's center for disease control in Atlanta. The report recommended t h a t the D e p a r t m e n t of Health. Education and Welfare encourage states to accept supplies of vaccines and take advantage of the depart- ment's centralized procurement system. The report said the department concurred with the recommendations. The center for diseare control, a unit of HEW, has repeatedly warned in recent years that national immunization levels were lower than they should be. Dr. John J. Witte, director of the center's immunization division, said Friday in answer to a query that the immunization level against polio had been declining nationally for the last 10 years. Among children 1 to 4 years old, 78 per cent were properly immunized in 1964. In 1972 the comprable figure was 62.9 per cent and last year 50.4 per cent. For diseases such as polio, public health experts are particularly concerned about this age group. The GAO report showed that the country as a whole was unsatisfactory in the level of immunization against diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, polio, measles and german measles. The report said that at least an 85 per cent immunization average was needed to protect a community against the risk of epidemic. Public health expert say, however, that a local outbreak can still occur when even higher levels are attained in a community. Nationwide, Witte said, immunization levls against measles, rubella, diphtheria, whooping c^'gli and tetanus among one-to-four-year-old children declined from 1972 to 1973.

High government sources made it clear Saturday that the free-wheeling, somewhat anarchic days that followed the military coup April 25 were over and that an effort to instill discipline, notably in military affairs, was under way.

At the same time, regulations providing for military supervision of the press are being put into force pending promulgation of a new press law in the next few weeks. The two television channels had been run by a company under a concession from the government which owned 51 per cent of the shares. The old regime had heavily censored them. This kind of control is now being reinforced.

The accusation was made in a report prepared for the Administrative Conference of the United States on how to measure the performance of a little-known but powerful group of federal .officials known as administrative law judges, Performance was measured as the number of cases decided each year. Of the 30 agencies that conduct formal administrative proceedings under the guidance of the administrative law judges, the report said, only four or five "statistically monitor and publicly report the intervals occurring between key steps in proceedings." Estimates by the administrative conference showed that restraint-of-trade cases within the Federal Trade Commission averaged 58 months 16 days, or almost five "years from start to finish. A deceptive-practice case in the Scout Pledges Pass 8600,000 Pledges to the Men-for-Tomorrow Campaign to raise funds for the Buckskin Council, Boy Scouts of America, have passed the $600,000 mark. General chairman John M. "Slim" Wells Jr. said the total of pledges now stands at I $637,000. The goal is $800,000. same agency averaged 34 months four days, or almost three years, to complete while pipeline certificate cases in the Federal Power Commission normally required just under two years.
