Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 1, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 10 The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Frl., Nov. I, 1974 Red Food Dye Rafed 'Harmful' WASHINGTON (UPI) A Ralph Nader research group says a widely used food dye is so dangerous that if a 110- pound pregnant woman drinks more than a third of a can of strawberry soda pop a day she risks either cancer or damag- ,ing her baby. The dye involved is red No. 2, ,used for everything from strawberry ice cream and soda pop to lipstick and pill coatings. About 1 million pounds of it was used in. food and cosmetics last year. Nader's health research group asked the Food and Drug Administration to ban the dye in 1971. Since then, it said Thurs- day, "consumers have eaten over million worth of red No. 2, exposing themselves to alarming and unnecessary risks." It said there have been three Food and Drug Admin- istration studies dating back to 1951 which "strongly in- dicate that red No. 2 does cause cancer." More Women Are Running for Off ice This Year "y Peggy Simpson WASHINGTON (AP) More women arc running lor more offices this year than ever before, and two of them arc expected to win major statewide posts in Tuesday's elections. Rep. Ella Grasso is favored to become governor of Con- necticut and Mary Ann Krupsak is ahead in her bid for lieu- tenant governor of New York. At the same time, women are expected to substantially increase their numbers in state legislatures. But women could slip back from their current congressional strength of 16 scats. Rep. Grasso, a Democrat, would become the fourth wom- an governor in U. S. history, and the first to make it without benefit of a husband's coattails. She has two decades of expe- rience in Connecticut politics. Miss Krupsak, a stale senator who defied Democratic party leaders to capture the nomination for lieutenant gov- ernor, would be the first woman elected to a major statewide office in New York. She ran her insurgent campaign on the slogan "She's not just one of the boys." Othrr major women candidates include Democrats Barbara Mikulski of Maryland and Betty Roberts of Oregon, both running for the senate, and Republican Louise Gore, a gubernatorial candidate in Maryland. All three are challenging heavily-favored incumbents. Spoiler's Role In. New York, Barbara Keating, a Vietnam war widow, is the Conservative party nominee for the senate. She could play the spoiler's role, siphoning off as many as one million votes from Republican Sen. Jacob K. Javits and his Democratic challenger, Ramsey Clark. Less visible but highly significant were the expected grass roots elections of women on school boards, city coun- cils, state courts imd as county sheriffs and administrators. Thousands more women sought elective office this year than ever before including nuns in Tennessee and Iowa (Sister Genevleve Blrchard of Cedar Rapids is running for Linn county a brothel owner in Nevada, an activ- ist Quaker grandmother in New Hampshire, a rlght-to-life conservative in New York, a lesbian in Massachusetts and a young Peace Corps veteran who swims the California coast to dramatize her opposition to offshore oil wells. Nobody has a precise fix on the number of women can- didates. E-.it the National Women's Political Caucus says women sought state and congressional seats in 1972. This year, Political Director Freddie Wechsler estimates that more (ban women ran for comparable seats. Primary Survivors More than women survived the primaries, she said, including candidates for state legislatures and three -major-party candidates for the senate, 44 for the house, three for governor, four for lieutenant governor and 11 for secre- tary of state. At last count there were 462 women among the state legislators or slightly more than 6 percent. "We look to increase this about 50 percent, to between 600 and said Betsy Wright, director of the National Women's Education Fund. The figures are skewered, however, by the dispropor- tionate share of women in New Hampshire's 400-member legislature. There are 89 women legislators there now and 160 are seeking seats this November. Every state has at least one woman legislator Alabama and Nebraska have only one each but many states have never elected a woman to the U. S. house or senate. This year, three of the 16 congresswomcn are retiring and Rep. Grasso quit to run for governor The 12 Incumbents are likely to win again. Reps. Patsy Mink and Llmly Hoggs have G.O.P. women opponents am! Rep. Lconor Sullivan (D-Mo.) has two women opponents. Changing Areas "A lot of women are running in marginal or changing said a Democratic analyst. "Colleen O'Connor's district In California is one of those, where it-districting last year cut out many conservative areas and brought in blue collar voters." The 29-year-old Miss O'Connor has shaped one of the most visible races in the country, swimming the district's coastline to demonstrate against pollution and trying to lie 22- year G.O.P Rep. Bob Wilson closer to the ITT case and the Nixon presidency. She is rated a possible upset winner. At least two congressional races involve controversies over the personal behavior of the incumbents ways and means chairman, Wilbur D. Mills, and judiciary committee member, Joseph Maraziti, a Republican. Mills was involved in a bizarre incident a month ago near Washington's Tidal Basin in which a female companion, identified as a fcimer stripper, left his car and jumped into the water. Maraziti has been discovered to have a no-show attractive woman staffer on his congressional payroll, whom he says gives him oral reports on her research. Republican Judy Petty is given only a slight chance to upset Mills in Arkansas, despite sizable last-minute help from G.O.P. headquarters. Democrat Helen Meyner, wife of the former New Jersey governor and a newspaper columnist, is given a good chance to trip Maraziti in her second try in two years. 'ear p Space Flight To Include Women by the Early 1980s By Howard Benedict HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) Women scien- tists will fly into space early in the 1980s and by late in that decade will be part of multi- national crews on large space stations, two male astronauts predict. The prediction reflects the views of the National Aeronautics and Space Administra- tion. Dr. Joseph P. Kerwin, the first American physician to fly into space as a member of last year's Skylab I crew, and Dr. Robert Parker, scientist-astronaut for the Skylab program, made the forecast Wednesday at a conference here evaluating Skylab results. Shuttle Program "There's no question but that women will fly in the early 1980s if the space shuttle program remains on Parker said. The shuttle is a reusable rocket ship expect- ed to ferry hundreds of researchers from many lands into orbit starting in 1979. "There was a lime when the public was not ready for the thought of men and women going to the moon Parker said. "But times have changed. I don't foresee any problem about men and women getting along together on space missions. We're not talking about dizzy blonde secretaries, but reputable women scientists." Kerwin said the Skylab project, in which men worked in space for up to 84 days, proved that men and women researchers making space trips aboard the shuttle will not have to undergo rigorous physical train- ing that has been required of astronauts. "Anybody in a reasonable state of health, regardless of age, will be able to fly as an experimenter in the operational shuttle and space station he said. "We now know people can spend three months in weightless space if they eat and exercise properly. No Problem "As a doctor, I would have no hesitation in recommending space flight for a person for as long as six months. And for short periods of time up to 30 days as contemplated in the shuttle program, there would be no problem at all." Kerwin said more research needs to be done to determine whether man can stay in space for a year or more, which would be ronuired for planetary trips. Parker and Kerwin both predicted the shuttle will open the way to large internation- al space stations later in the next decade. "Exploration is a bit of a Kerwin said. "But I am sure we can demonstrate there is a need for a large space station to benefit mankind on earth. And it will be eco- nomically feasible."

He plans to visit six Midwestern states and Far West states in a final bid to spur Republican upsets in Tuesday's elections. WASHINGTON (AP) First Lady Betty Ford, whose right breast was removed five weeks ago, will undergo drug trealment to combat any undetected malignant cells that may have remained after surgery, the White House physician says. Dr. William Lukash said in a statement Thursday that physical examinations and di- agnostic tests have disclosed no signs of remaining cancer. But he said the precaution- ary drug treatment, or chem- otherapy, was ordered be- cause two lymph glands re- moved from beneath Mrs. Ford's right arm during the Sept. 28 operation were can- cerous. One cannot be entire- ly certain that undetected microscopic malignancy has not spread to other Lukash said, and chemother- apy was chosen "to insure more inclusive treatment against any possible remain- ing cancer." Presidential Press Secre- tary Ron Nessen declined In identify the drug being used, but he said Mrs. Ford would lake it oraliy. There was no indication how long the treat- ments would last. Nessen said he knew of no side effects from the drug.
