Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 22, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa j A The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Wed.. May 22. 1971 Doctor Tells Health Risks Of Pollution By William Clayton WASHINGTON' (Ul'l) A Chicago doctor thinks we arc forgetting some things about air pollution because public debate centers on technical is- sues like "standards, ambient quality and emissions." Dr. liertram Carnow, a professor at the University of Illinois, has reminded a senate subcommittee: Any pollution is a threat to somebody's health. Some ingredients of pollution are worse in combination than (hoy are one by one. There is a bis gap in knowledge of what people are high risks because of some disorder such as sickle cell anemia. He said those things should play a part in any setting of air requirements and that pollu- tion control programs should not merely blow dirty air from one area to another. Too often, he said, standards are viewed as levels to protect everyone's health, and "this, of course, is just not true." "At every level of air pollu- tion, someone's health is af- fected adversely, and someone may die." Some people are in a high risk of pollution harm because their ability to adapt is limited, he said. "While some, like cardiacs and asthmatics, are well known, others like those with sickle cell anemia or alpha-one anti-trypsin deficiency, are just now being recognised. "It is therefore critical to consider both the numbers and kinds of people at high risk at different pollution levels and the pollution levels them- selves, if we are to make decisions in regard to the im- pact of environmental stresses on human health." Prince Charles Gets 115-Room Bachelor Pad LONDON (AP) Prince Charles, the 25-year-old heir to Ihe British throne, is getting a ]7lli Century mansion with 115 rooms and acres of grounds for his bachelor pad. "Most young men would ex- pect to have their own home by the lime they arc his age. He will appreciate a place of his said an official at Buckingham palace. "Marriage rumors sur- rounding the prince have nothing to do with his decision to take'the the spokes- man added, referring to press speculation that Charles is planning lo marry Lady Jane Wellcsley, the 23-year-old daughter of the Duke of Wellington. The mansion is Chcvcning house, near Scvenoaks, 25 miles southeast of London. It was willed to Ihe nation by the Earl of Stanhope, who died without an heir in 1967. He asked in his will that Charles he invited to live there. The prince is now on active duty with the navy. He is ex- pected lo move into Cheveiiing house next year after it has been renovated. Buckingham palace said the renovation will be paid for by a trust fund left by Lord Stanhope, which also pays for the maintenance of the house and grounds. But Charles will provide his own staff. The prince will live in the main part of the house, which has four sitting rooms, bedrooms and eight bath- rooms. Buckingham palace said Charles would use Chevening as his country home and would keep his three-room apartment at the palace in London.
