APPROACH-•• ^ A MONTH WE'VE SEEN WORKING ON THIS- -* Mmmmm-- flOO-O-O" ITS TOO FAR OUT/ WE'VE GOTTO STRESS PRODUCT i DIGNITY/ , iTrHiS The (rdar Rapids Gazette: Mon., May 27. 1971 U.N. Session on Third World Proves Displeasing for U.S. By Kathleen Teltseh Now York Times Service UNITED NATIONS - The General Assembly’s first economic session ended with many participants saying it marked a turning point in relationships between the poor and the prosperous nations The U.S., however, was far from pleased with the outcome The assembly, initiated by Algeria, heard much about the new “political will'' needed to allow the poorer countries a more equitable share of the world s income. To move toward that end, the participants approved a declaration of principles and an action program to establish a “new international economic order. a title that the French found pretentious and that Americans predicted would agitate conservatives in congress. Uncertain Effect It is uncertain how. if at all. this is likely to affect the HOH million who, according to Robert McNamara, president of the World Bank, are subsisting on about .'IO cents a day The assembly's most concrete achievement was approval of an emergency relief program for the countries that have been hit hardest by the soaring costs of food, oil. fertilizer and other necessities that they import The assembly met from April 9 to May 2. The U.S. waited until the assembly's closing days and then rushed in with a recommendation for an 18-month, $4 billion program of assistance only to find that the participants were in no mood to listen It is hoped that the new aid program will be financed by the industrialized countries and the oil producers. There are pledges from the nine members of the European Common Market, Iran and some others; the Arab producers made it clear during the session that they would prefer to run their own assistance programs The program is to start operating by January, which the Americans say will be too late to help the countries with crushing balance-of-payments deficits and no means to meet their next quarter’s oil bills Ego Bruising The session seems to have been an ego-bruising experience for the U.S. However, Secretary General Waldheim and others believe that the assembly enhanced the image of the loose coalition of countries known as the nonaligned or Third World; that is what the Algerians were hoping for Algerians admit freely that President Honan Boumcdiene asked for the session on raw materials and development to counter the initiative of Secretary of State Kissinger in getting the major oil-consuming countries to join at a huh'ting in Washington in March, to develop a joint energy strategy For the Third World, solidarity had to be maintained and a split between the oil producers and the nonproducers avoided. So the energy issue had to be diffused in a broad free-ranging airing of such grievances as the low prices that the poorer countries get for their commodities, compared with the spiraling costs for exports from tile industrialized countries, and tin' injustices of trade, investment and monetary arrangements, all assertedly planned by the developed countries to keep tin1 rich nations in control. At first the I S. stood aloof from the preparations tor the meeting, but joined iii later. The Americans disapproved of the pace as indicating lack in serious purpose, even though they led to some changes in tin' declaration of principles that Western Europeans called sig nificant concessions to the industrial powers In the end. the U.S. aud the Furojieans expressed scores of reservations about the text, particularly to provisions upholding the right of a country to nationalize property but omitting any obligation for compensation under international law Since the session s end there have been rumblings of dissatisfaction from other quarters. President Leopold Sengor of Senegal, for one, has termed the session a failure, objecting that it will not help meet the needs of Africa Foreign Minister Abdela/is Boutefika of Algeria insisted that the session showed that the Third World is no fiction, but a “responsible force.” In a conciliatory mood, lie said it was to the credit of the industrialized powers that they had opened a dialogue “It s easy for him to be magnanimous; he's just rolled all over everyone,” an American remarked More in keeping with the general reaction. Ivor Richard of Britain asserted that the session had made everyone reassess existing economic relationships and had provided an agenda that would be the business of the international community for the next decade They'll Do It Every Time Scientists Link Alcohol to Drownings By Al Rossiter, jr WASHINGTON (IPI) -That familiar warning, “Don t swim after eating," should tie modified to include “or drinking " Two public health researchers at Johns Hopkins university reported that a stud> of 4a adults who drowned in Baltimore from JOHS to 1972 showed that 47 percent had been drinking alcoholic beverages I tuque Factors? Although it is possible that these high figures reflect factors unique to the city of Baltimore. our impression based on limited data available from the Maryland counties is that alcohol is a vvidespread concomitant of adult drownings." said Park Dietz and Mrs. Susan Baker in a report iii the April issue of the American Journal of Public Health They said the role of alcohol in drowning has been neglected in both popular and scientific media. One reason, they said, is because tests for alcohol iii the blood are not usually made in most areas unless there is reason to believe drinking was a factor Dietz and Baker examined all 133 accidental drowning cases in Maryland iii 1972 in an effort to determine their cause. Sixteen of tlu* drownings were caused by Tropical Storm Agnes, leaving 117 to be analyzed. Only in Baltimore were tests performed for alcohol on all adult drow lung v id I ins II ha ivouhl lim e known.

Newhall 319-334 5436 BHL HUNGERFORD 364-6632 Jess Fauchior, Owrier-Operator To obtain an alcohol study group of adequate size, the researchers added cases for three prev ions years vs Inch met the proper criteria — the victims drowned in the city, wert* lf) years or older, no land vehicle was involved and the body was submerged less than 12 hours. Important ( .lust* They said the data seems to establish beyond dispute that alcohol is important iii tilt' cause of drowning. They said it is inconceivable that 47 percent of all persons la years or older who are exposed to water have been drinking alcohol “More especially, the frequency with which alcohol was observed among drowned adult swimmers (ll of 14 or 78 percent) speaks for itself.'’ the report said. “In response to the need for public awareness, swimming .md boating courses should emphasize the increased hazard of aquatic sports for persons who have been drinking.’- the researchers said They also recommended changes iii advertising practices which    t ll t* v    said frequently show alcoholic beverages in association with swimming, boating and fishing. Over-all. the report said approximately ti,filii) persons drown iii the V S. each year. It is the fourth leading cause of accidental death and for ages 5 to 24 it is second only to death due to motor vehicles. In Maryland, where few of the state's 3.9 million persons live more than III miles from water. 62 percent of the drownings occurred in June, July and August The over-all drowning rate was 2.3 deaths per UM),(NHI whites in the state By Oswald & James Jacoby Oswald. “I ve been looking over the ‘Complete Book of Bridge’ by Terence Reese and Albert Dormer." Jim: “Anything by Reese and Dormer is well worth reading. I imagine the book covers both bidding and play." Oswald: "It sure does. The part on play is particularly valuable. Here is a hand to show when a rubber bridge player should avoid a free finesse in order to insure game and rubber." Jim: "With luck in both minor suits, South would wrap up 13 tricks.
