Epizootic Severe Blow to Britons Sy GODFftEV A.V Associated Press Wffftf LONDON <AP< — The smoky reek of death rise? over Britain's russet coufslrysrd* this fall, the nation is burning infected livestock. The worst epizootic of foot and mouth disease this island has ever known has brought the destruction of more than 200>X> animal^—cattle, sheep, pigs. goals More than 1.000 farms and 14 northern counties are directly affected The res! of the nation is in a state of virtual siege in an attempt to keep the disease from spreading. Standstill orders prohibit the movement of cattle, sheep or pies the markets are siilnt and deserted, their stalls empty. the 500 veterinarians fighting the epizootic—animal version of an epidemic—say the virus is the most virulent encountered yet. They aren't sure of its origin but they believe that a farmer's boot, a truck tire or a sudden change of wind can spread it. Since the accepted method of control is slaughter, each ne* outbreak means another farm-' er's livestock is wiped out. * | The farmer gels market value for his lost stock. Me gets nothing for the consequential } losses—miik yield, butter sales, the cost of building a hew herd, i To some the spread of the dis- ease, which first showed at Oswestry hear the Welsh border fiv6 weeks ago. is reaching alarming proportions, there have even been suggestions it is out of control. Minister of Agriculture Fred Peart calls such talk irresponsible. Even with the current proportions of judicial carnage, he says, Britain is losing less than one in every hundred of her 9 million cattle, 5'j million pigs and 20 million sheep. But the blow to badly needed exports is severe. Rudi Steinberg, chairman of the Agricultural Export Council, has reported the loss of a S297.600 order from the Soviet Union for British cattle. While many farmers are forced to live virtually isolated on their farms, windows closed against the stench from their burning siock. each countryman's life is affected. Fox bunting, favorite winter sport of landowner and farmer alike, is completely stopped. So is horse racing. The famed Smithfield Fat- stock Show will have no live animals—just farm machinery London's Christmas poultry show is off: while the disease does not affect poultry, officials discourage large meetings of farmer?. Southern England's 104 square miles of New Forest, once William the Conqueror's favored hunting ground, hag been cleared of all gratehg stock for the first time in 700 years. Several zoos have closed. Stately homes are barred to visitors to protect deer in their parks. The 30.000 Irish who usually go home for a Christmas visit are asked by the republic's government to stay away this time. Those who travel have to walk through an atomizer mist of disinfectant on arriving at Dublin Airport. Disinfectant baths for vehicles have been set up on roads at strategic poinls to protect southern England from possibly infected traffic from the north. Use the Classified Ads "Gh6 it to me straight!

Off-Campus Activities Spark UT Investigation of Teacher AUSTIN <AP) "Widespread reports" on (he 'outof- state. off-campus activities" of Dr. Clark Knowllon led Chancellor Harry Ransom of the University of Texas System to request administrative fact-finding on the El Paso sociology professor, Ransom says. Ransom said he wanted to establish whether published criticism of Knowlton was accurate •when he asked Dr. Joseph Wray. president of the University of Texas at El Paso, for the reports. Ji> El Paso, meanwhile. Knowlton said Wednesday he did not resent Ransom's inquiry. He said he did not Interpret the action as an effort to inhibit his activities. He said when a faculty member is involved in such a controversy, the administration incvitabfy has the right to query the faculty member. Knowlton was informed of the reports' contents before they were sent to Austin, Ransom said. "It is not an investigation in the usual sense. It is a report f requested from Dr. Wray so I would be clear in my own mind , after reading confusing press reports," he said. He said there had been published criticism of the professor in both Texas and New Mexico and "widespread reports, chiefly from New Mexico of his out-of- state, off-campus activities.'' He said the reports contained references to Reies Tijcrina. leader of the Confederation of Free City States, which seeks to restore to Mexican-Americans title to thousands of acres of New Mexico land that Tijerina says is rightfully theirs under old Spanish land grants. "What I wanted was to establish the accuracy of the criticism," Ransom said. "In reasonable fairness to the institution at El Paso and to Dr, Knowllon, a full report was needed."
