Quarter Horse Show Set For River House Farms the show will be New Birth Defect Virus Discovered By JOHN BARBOUR Associated Press Science Writer WARRENTON, Va. (AP) — A trange, symptom-less virus — so common most people have had it by age 30 — may produce more brain damage and mental re ardation in newborns than measles. It has, at least, according to he findings of researchers at Johns Hopkins University where mothers and their babies have jeen tested for the virus, said Dr. Robert Cooke, Johns Hopkins pediatrician. •, The findings came to light in an interview at the two-day White louse conference on mental retardation which ends today. Furthermore, there is good evidence that the virus—once it has nfected an unprotected mother- can invade the baby within her womb and cause brain damage late as the fifth month of p-egnancy, perhaps later. There is also evidence that the virus is active in producing brain damage not only before birth — but for a few months afterwards, Dr. Cooke said. Because it produces no symptoms or signs and can live for seme time in the salivary glands, it is difficult to detect except in the urine of the infected person or in a check for protective antibodies in the blood. The virus is called the cytomegalo-virus — a big cell virus—so-called because it enlarges infected cells. from Osage City, Kan., and have seen approved by the association, Evilsizer added.

Phone Call Leads to Arrest Of Illinois Goose Hunter CHICAGO (AP)-William Klapp, a Rockford, 111., hunter who got into trouble when he was called to the phone from a goose blind, has been fined $50 for hunting waterfowl without a migratory bird stamp. "I am never going to go hunting again," Klapp, 36, told Judge Bernard M. Decker Thursday in U.S. District Court, where he pleaded guilty to the charge. Klapp, manager of a restaurant-motel in Rocklord, was accused of borrowing a hunting license and bird stamp from a Lexington, Mo., resident. He registered on Oct. 23, 1962, with three companions for .a blind in the Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge near Sumnery Mo. An assistant U.S. attorney told the court that Klapp's troubles began when a long distance telephone call came for him at the refuge registration desk. Officials Icund no one by that name registered, but learned the names of his companions. A game warden went to their blind, and after checking names announced the long distance cali for Klapp. "Oh, that's me," a hunter identified as Klapp responded. "Let me see your, license,'""the warden said. Klapp paid a $50 fine in Mis souri for hunting without a registered license and was arrested in Roclcford last week on the federa bird stamp charge. Judge Decker was told that the usual .Missouri fine for the license offense was $100. "Thty already fined him $50,' thii judge said. "I'll fine him $50 and that'll make the $100." "I am supposed to take my va cation next week," Klapp told Judge Decker. "But my wife won't let me go minting."
