To the editor:
Floyd Conaway expressed my sentiments
exactly regarding the missing children. Every
tim e I pour a glass o f milk from a carton with
a little children’s picture on it I get a sad
negative feeling imagining the little victim
being tortured and abused When in 94% of
the cases, they’re probably being doted

Recent publicity of the relative effectiveness
o f the HTLV-1D antibody test may imply to
som e people that this test makes continued,

The HTLV-DI Antibody test is sensitive to
the antibody once it has developed. However,
a person infected with the HTLV-UI vims can
be infective to others for weeks to several
months before any antibody has been

it essential that all homosexual males (with-
single long-term or multiple short-term part
ners alike) continue to abstain from donating
