The same mv be said of epidemiologists who try to predict the diseases of the future and. or course, in 1976 this applies to the influezna vaccine sponsored by the Federal Government. Influenza vaccine has been in existance for over 30 years. Unfortunately. the early vaccine caused local soreness and reactions. "Flu" vaccine has the drawback of only protecting against the type of virus contained in vaccine, and the type of virus changes practically every year. Minor changes are spoken of as drifts in that the virus still resembles the previous viruses. Major changes are known as shifts usually leaving the citizenry with no antibody protection and leading to severe epidemics. The so-called swine virus of New Jersey represents a major shift and presents the findings leading to a major epidemic. The leading virologists and other authorities on influenza all agree to this possibility while admitting that any prediction about influenza is hypothetical and prophetic. It is really admitted there may be no epedemic, in which case citizens will not suffer regardless of the vaccines. On the other hand if an epidemic does develop, as feared by the authorities, the vaccine will help to prevent undue death and suffering. It is predicted by the authorities that any epidemic in the 1976-77 influenza season will be due to either Victoria/A type influenza or the New lersey/A type. Vccines will all be purchased by the Federal Government for distribution through the State Health Departments. Any vaccine for sale through usual commercial sources will not contain the viruses expected by the authorities to be prevalent in 1976-77. Questions have been asked as to why the World Health Organizations did not support universal vaccination. The fact is that our country is probably the only country in the world who can both produce and deliver vaccine to all citizens. The immensity of this task is evident from the delay in manufactur mg the vaccine and the time it takes to administer the vaccine to the entire population. Influenza in epidemics spreads very rapidly, and there is not time to wait for a demonstrated spread of the disease to give the vaccine. Antibiotics may be helpful but in the fnfluenza pandemic of 1918 citizens developed pnemonia and died within twelve hours. Even modern antibiotic is effective against "flu" virus. In any project as massive as universal infuuenza vaccination, many questions are bound to arise. The dose of vaccine, type of vaccine, and age of parients receiving vaccine are but a few, The West Virginia State Health Department will gladly attemep to answer such questions. U,S.

Answering today is flat- old Ellis, Southern Dlvl- sien Managelr. QUESTION: Why do you charge a penalty when I pay my electric bill a few days late? ANSWER: It is unfortunate that some of our customers have this misunderstanding. We do not charge a penalty for late payment. We do offer worthwhile di,ount for early payment of electric bills. The practice of allowing "prompt payment discounts" or "cash discounts" goes far back in the history of American business. It is a means of encouraging early settlement of all accounts--and early settlement of accounts saves a lot of expense which otherwise would have to be reflected in prices. A very large majority of Monongahela cus- tomers pay their electric bills in time to earn the prompt payment discount. This gives us the cash early enough that we can pay our bills in time to earn the discounts offered by our suppliers. And those discounts we earn by prompt payment of our bills represent thousands of dollars that would otherwise have to be added to electric rates, The cost of electricity is higher today and, if our costs continue to increase, the rates must increase accordingly. One Way you can help hold increases to a minimum is by prompt payment of your electric bill. But we also ask your help in conserving energy in every way possible -- to conserve the dimini shing energy resources of the country and to save money for yourself.
