10-Uklah Dally Journal, Ukiah Calif. Wednesday, July 17, 1974 Has anthrax outbreak spread into Oklahoma? MARLIN, Tex. (UPI) - An outbreak of anthrax which killed more than 100 cattle in East Texas may have already spread into Oklahoma. National Guardsmen and.animal inspectors today manned quarantine roadblocks in Texas, and Oklahoma Gov. David Hail ordered a halt to the movement of all cattle in his state. Officials said eight to 10 cows died Tuesday at the Oklahoma City stockyards, and most of them were confirmed as victims of the contageous disease. Anthrax can infect humans who come in contact with diseased animals - or eat contaminated meat. Penicillin is an effective treatment for anthrax in humans, but the disease is almost always fatal to animals. In Texas, a spokesman in Falls County said 175 cows died of the disease and were destroyed. Cows that die of anthrax must be cremated within 24 hours. Ranchers dug pits; poured coal oil on the carcasses of dead cattle and burned them in an attempt to stop the spread of the disease. , "It could wipe out the whole country if it's not checked," a .veterinarian in Falls County said. "We can check it if we have an effective quarantine. Most everybody is scared, but we don't need stupid things like hauling cattle to sale." „ A vaccine is available : to. '"control anthrax, but it is scarce, and Falls' County extension agent Gilbert Woods said Tuesday the present crisis could drain all supplies of the vaccine. Billy Ray Gowdy, president of the Oklahoma Board of Agriculture, said "It could wipe some people out if we're not on top of it." Gowdy said the anthrax was spread by a consignment of cattle from Sulphur Springs, Tex., 150 miles from Marlin where most of the diseased cattle in Texas have been found. He said officials poured through records at the Oklahoma City stockyards to trace the movement of all cattle through the facility in the last couple of days. "This is what scares us—the other cattle who would be out in the state,'' Gowdy said. Merry-go-round Watergate autographs By JACK ANDKKSON By JACK ANDERSON WASHINGTON — What's in a name? Plenty, if you're collecting or selling Watergate autographs, a fad that may soon rival digging up old Captain Marvel comics or Nazi war souvenirs. A prize bargain in this new hobby is an envelope indicted ex-Attorney General John Mitchell, and bearing a first-day-of-issue Law and Order stamp. It's only $15. Souvenir Nixon inaugural envelopes signed in happier days by White House aides H.R. Haldeman or John Ehrlichman, cost $25. Rose Mary Woods' name on an envelope commemorating the President's trip to Russia, goes for $10. Her signature on an 18-minute blank piece of tape would probably bring a fortune. A Bill of Rights stamped envelope signed by Senate Watergate chief counsel, Sam Dash, costs $8. Unaccountably, one signed by his pipe-smoking minority colleague, Fred Thompson, brings $10. An autograph by former Commerce Secretary and Nixon , fund raiser Maurice Stans, recently acquitted in a felony case involving world securities trader Robert Vesco, costs $15. It's on a World Trade stamp cover. That is also the price of a Nixon inaugural envelope . signed by the man Nixon forced out as Attorney General, Elliot Richardson. An inaugural cover bearing the signature of the President's wheeler-dealer brother, Don, costs $10. Special Watergate , prosecutor Leon Jaworski, and his predecessor Archibald Cox's signatures on covers also fetch $10. An autographed photo of the first Nixon cabinet, starring disbarred former Vice President Spiro Agnew, costs $200. And a picture of Supreme Court justices, bearing their autographs, is a bargain at $150 now that they are deciding whether Nixon can refuse to give up evidence. Two off-beat items bring premiums. One is a 1971 letter for $35 signed by astronaut Donald Slayton saying that ". . .1 know of no plans to send the President into space in 1976..." Another is a signed photo of My' Lai murderer Lt. William Calley, which goes for $75. Footnote: Watergate signatures cited are priced by J. Fricelli. Other dealers have different rates, but all guarantee authenticity. Ac- &m^y.iT^^ a Watergate Washington, secretaries often forge their busy bosses' names to autograph requests. NO-FUN FUR: The nation's biggest seal skin fur processor, Fouke Fur Co., is lobbying so hard for permission to bring in baby seal skins from South Africa that its Congressman, James Mann, D-S.C, jokingly told a recent visitor, "I represent the Fouke Fur Company." Akf seeking a ten-year exemption lor Fouke on the ban Board of Realtors members inducted against bringing in the brutally slain baby seals is Sen. Strom Thurmond, R-S.C. An enthusiastic segregationist himself, Thurmond sees no problem in continuing the seal trade with segregationist South Africa. Fouke brought in 50,000 of the skins last year. t Another South Carolinian, Commerce Secretary Frederick Dent, claims impartiality. But in fact, Commerce has named . two reputedly pro-slaughter members to a panel studying the environmental impact of the seal trade. The tiny seals are first clubbed, then knifed to death. Fouke, meanwhile, has advised Commerce that if it cannot get permission to import the baby pelts from South Africa, it will have to jack up its rates for the government-owned Alaskan seals it processes, This government program brings the Treasury $1.8 million annually. POLLSTER UNDECIDED: One of Watergate's unanswered ' questions is who was behind three break-ins at the office of pollster Louis Harris shortly after his survey showed President Nixon's 1970 invasion of Cambodia was highly unpopular among college students. Whitehouse adviser Alexander Heard had picked Harris for the poll, which showed 71 per cent of the students gave Nixon a negative rating and 69 per cent had "serious doubts" about the invasion. Harris tells us "files were strewn around." Although he cannot prove the White House "plumbers" had anything to do with it, he is "very suspicious." WASHINGTON WHIRL: Small Business Administrator Tom Kleppe not only has a chauffeur-driven limousine, he had a chauffeur-driven golf cart at a recent outing. The SBA, in a sudden press release after we inquired, insisted the chauffeur helped Kleppe on his own, not the taxpayers' time... Salty old Navy Adm. Hyman Rickover recently was given a $90.70 case of Harvey's Bristol Cream Sherry by a General Electric bigwig who cautiously ordered his messenger to deliver it "in plain brown wrapper so its contents can't be identified." GE is a major Navy contractor, but Rickover, who Was married three months ago, explained, "It must be a wedding present. I drink only ginger ale.". . . To bring Vietnamese orphans to the U.S. for adopting parents, stewardesses from Pan-Am and United are taking a week of their • vacations to travel to Saigon and back. The airlines provide the travel, hotel and meals. The maidens of mercy provide the tender loving care... The Surgeon General's annual report on smoking and disease was delayed six months, allegedly because of pressure by the tobacco barons. Nonsense, said a federal spokesman, it was only a • "bureaucratic snafu."
