Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 27, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa SA The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sun., Jan. 27, 1974 Massive Survey on Crime Surprises Even Experts New York Times Service NEW YORK - Denver had three time more rain's and assaults—in relation to its population—than Newark. Atlanta’s robbery rate was three times higher than Portland, Ore. Three times more cars were stolen in Cleveland than in Dallas. These are some of the first findings to emerge from a unique and continuing federal study amied at measuring the levels and kinds of crime in the U.S. as a whole and in its major cities without relying on the crime reported either to or by local police departments. Not Reported Because citizens often choose not to report crimes to the po lice—and because the police | sometimes choose not to officially record all the crimes that come to their attention—many criminologists and police officials have questioned whether the annual crime reports of the Federal Bureau of Investigation I are an accurate index of crime in America. But the survey of a scientific sampling of citizens, which bypasses the police and goes directly to the victims of crime, is expected to provide a far more reliable measure of national crime trends and the j were reported, comparative burden of crimes in different cities. Whites, Blacks Among the findings drawn from the answers given by the approximately 200,000 persons questioned in eight cities chosen for the first part of the study hy the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration were the following: The official police statistics on tile average only show half tin' serious crimes the citizens said had occurred. The nonreporting varied from crime to crime. There were 2.1 rapes, 2.3 robberies and 2.7 burglaries for each of these crimes that was recorded. Almost all stolen cars Air Pollution    Report This is a weekly report of data submitted to The Gazette by the air pollution control division of the Linn county health department. Airborne Dust A measurement of particulate matter is made in terms of micrograms per cubic meter. The national standards, to be enforced by 1975: 75, average for a year (geometric mean), and 260, maximum 24-hour concentration, not to be exceeded more than once a year.

The non-reporting of crime varied widely from city to city. In Denver, there were almost three crimes for every one noted rn police records while in Newark there were only 1.4 crimes for every one | recorded. Contrary to expectations, the \ white and black residents of the eight cities told the Census Bu- j j reau questioners that they had suffered a roughly similar rate i of over-all criminal victimiza- \ tion. The survey found tremendous variation in the number of different kinds of crimes committed in each of the cities in relation to population. For every 100,000 residents, for example, there were 17,000 robberies in Atlanta, 15.900 robberies in Bal-1 timorc, 12,400 in Newark, IO.-1 700 in St. Louis, 9,800 in Cleve- j land, 6.900 in Denver, 5,700 in Dallas and 5,500 in Portland. For rapes and assaults, an entirely different pattern emerged with Denver having 4,100 for every' 100,000 persons1 Portland 3,500, Dallas 2.800, Atlanta 2,700, Baltimore 2,500. Cleveland 2.500.

Rose suffered from hyaline membrane, but with the help of the device, called continuous positive airway pressure, is getting along fine. Observing her Saturday was Mrs. Larry Adams, a nurse in the intensive care nursery. ti Breathing Device Aids Newborn Puzzled Donald Santarelli, head of the1 Law Enforcement Assistance : Administration which sponsored ' the survey and George Hall J 'head of the National Criminal* Justice Information and Statis-; tics Service, expressed surprise j at some of the findings. They were especially puzzled by the comparatively close vic-i Utilization rates experienced by whites and blacks in the eight cities because early experimental surveys and precinct-by-pre-cinct studies in New York had indicated that blacks are far more likely to be attacked and robbed than whites. Tiny Rose Drievold is alive in St. Luke’s intensive care nursery thanks to an invention of a Cleveland doctor and the ingenuity of two Cedar Rapids pediatricians, Dr. James Ziska and Dr. Jack Reida, and hospital inhalation therapist, Richard Holmes. The three men took an intricate plastic nose piece developed by Cleveland’s Dr. Kattwinkel and built it into an effective device to aid breathing. Rose was the first customer for the unit. Rose, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Drievold, 907 C avenue NW, was born last Sunday. She was one month premature, weighed 5 and a quarter pounds and suffered from hyaline membrane. Before the development of the continuous positive airway pressure unit, Rose would have had little or no chance for survival. Hyaline membrane results from incomplete development of a newborn baby’s lungs and is a frequent condition of premature babies. The membrane forms and collects in the lungs around the alveoli, tiny air sacs through which carbon dioxide is exhausted from the blood and replaced by oxygen. The foreign membrane is somewhat fluid and Is about the consistency of a thin, bubbly but tough syrup. The membrane coats the tiny air sacs, collapses them and the victim is suffocated. The continuous positive airway pressure device developed by the three Cedar Rapids men provides a constant airway pressure which prevents the collapse of the tiny air sacs. This permits “normal” breathing by the infant while lung development may be completed and the membrane expelled or absorbed. With the help of the device, Rose is doing just fine. By Gordon Hanson BURLINGTON (AP) Orville Kelly, dying of cancer, has gathered together a group of persons who also suffer incurable diseases or have loved ones who do. “At first I felt sorry for myself,” said Kelly the 43-year old father of four young children. “I held God responsible. Otherwise, why would He let this happen to me? “Now I ask myself how I could doubt the existence of God—when I hear a child's laughter on a summer evening, or see around me the miracle of life itself.” The first meeting of Kelly’s new organization, Make Today Count, drew 18 persons Friday night. “Talk Out Grief” The group has no officers, no dues, no formal program other than to let people “talk out their grief with others who know and understand what they are going through,” Kelly said. “It’s a sharing. “We want to bring together people, and their families, lo assist each other in enjoying life—the life that is left to them. “I’m talking about moral assistance. I can remember the stark realism of bring told I had an incurable form of cancer. It would have been so | much easier to face if I could have talked to someone who had already been through the initial stages of this and had accepted the fact. “I’d guess you’d call it fellowship. I know we can’t help everyone. Some people just aren't going to accept the fact that they have terminal illness. “But if we can’t help them, at leart we can help their families.

Now that I attempt to live a normal life, it seems to affect them to the point that they’re back on schedule. “We talk about this once in a while. I don’t try to hide it.

"The past really doesn’t matter now, because no matter what the circumstances, if I live each day fully, I know I will not waste one part of it.” FTC Expects Big 73 Jump For Cigarets WASHINGTON (AP) - The Federal Trade Commission said it expects cigaret consumption for 1973 to show the largest yearly increase since the U. S. surgeon general warned of the effects of smoking on health. Since the figures were preliminary and subject to adjustment later in the year, the FTC did not interpret the estimated 3.8 percent increase in overall consumption. B u t indications are that Americans smoked 5 to 8 packs more per person in 1973 than they did in 1972. despite the government’s best efforts to discourage smoking over the last IO years. Americans in 1972 smoked nearly 201 packs per person, including smokers and nonsmokers, according to commis-jsion figures gathered from cigaret manufacturers. The commission repeated what has become an annual recommendation to congress, to require cigaret packages and advertisements to carry, “Warn ing: Cigaret Smoking Is Dan-MARION—Lucile Douglas, 81, [porous to Health, and May a resident of Marion for 40 Cause Death From Cancer, years, died Friday morning in a Coronary Heart Disease, Chron-local nursing home.    | ic Bronchitis, Pulmonary Em- She was born May 26,    1892, at    physema and Other Discases.” The government continued    West Branch.    The commission also recom- Sertoma    Club    —    Tuesday    Remove unwanted    hair    per-    “Arrangement    of    the    Week”;    Pinball    Contest    —    Coe    col-    Las    Vegas-Grand    Canyon*|round-the-clock    evaluation Surviving are    two    sisters,    mended requiring a warning on noon at    the    Elks club.    Ray Ash-manently with    safe,    sure    clee-Pottery    Valentine    Heart    with lege's    pinball    wizard    compete    Southwest    bus    tour.    Leaving    f    I i g h t s with    commandeered    Mrs. Clem Weis,    Marion, and    packages and ads for little lock will speak    on    Lincoln and trolysis.
