Transcript Quarantines Should Be Few, Says Health Chairman SAN ANTONIO (UPI)-Education is the most important tool for stemming AIDS, but quarantines should be used in rare cases where known carriers of the deadly disease continue to be sexually promiscuous, the new chairman of the state Health Board said. Dr. Frank Bryant of San Antonio, who was appointed chairman this past, said Tuesday the board was considering moving against only six people in Texas when it considered adopting such a rule 18 months ago. The board adopted the rule, but then recanted its decision in January 1986 after receiving numerous protests. "We would have said this about any person with syphillis, turberculosis or gonorrhea—any communicable disease. What else would you do," said Bryant, who added he was only voicing his own opinions and not those of the board. Bryant said that unless a vaccine can be found for acquired immune deficiency syndrome, which can be sexually transmitted, the focus must be on "education of the public about how one contracts the disease and how to go about avoiding it." Bryant, an immediate past president of the Bexar County Medical Society, had served one six-year term on the state board and recently was appointed for a second term. Taylor Disagrees with Reagan 'People' by William C. Trott United Press International President Reagan says abstinence is the best way to beat AIDS but AIDS fighter Elizabeth Taylor doesn't think much of his cure. "Can this be considered realistic when you realize that every year millions of teenagers become pregnant?" she said in an interview with the West German magazine Der Spiegel. "His advice really is not very sensible. It reglly is amazing how our president confronts this national catastrophe." Taylor urged young people to keep in mind that AIDS has ended the era of sexual freedom. "This jumping from bed to bed, having this or that partner that you picked up in a bar, really has become playing with fire," she said. Taylor is chairwoman of the American Foundation for AIDS research. DDD SPEAKING OF VANNA: For those who can't get enough of Vanna White, the game show queen's book, "Vanna Speaks," will be out soon. In the meantime, the May issue of Ladies Home Journal has an excerpt in which she says she got her "Wheel of Fortune" job because "I turned the letters better than anyone else and because Pat (Sajack, the show's host) and I made a cute couple, with sort of a brother-and-sister look." The "Wheel" job came in 1982 at a point where her Hollywood career had not been going well. At one point, she considered posing nude for Playboy but decided she couldn't go through with it. In the book White also talks about how she unsuccessfully tried to talk Playboy's Hugh Hefner out of publishing pictures of her lingerie.
