A Survey by United press International of gynaecologists and obstetricians across the country showed that physicians who have been recommending use of the pills generally regarded the report As supporting them in their judgment. Those with reservations about or outright objections to use of the Oral contraceptives saw nothing in the report to make them feel differently. Some physicians said they would continue to prescribe limitations on the pills or prescribe other methods of birth control diaphragms or enter uterine devices. Others indicated their patients had been ignoring recommended time limitations anyway and praised the decision to drop them. The nine month study prepared by the advisory committee on obstetrics and gynaecology for the Federal food and drug administration Fra stressed there is he evidence that Oral Are unsafe. It said equally however that a on the basis of present knowledge there is no Evi work begins i Hitri town water project Addison up a work has started Here on a water filtration Plant As part of the new $2.8 million water system for the trl town water District. The project area was inspected saturday by president Johnson and sen. George d. Aiken a it. It was Aikens Rural water Bill that helped make the project possible. The Multi level Plant the ply Zagallo construction co. Of South Burlington started building monday is to be located near Lake Champlain at oven Point. Water will be taken from the Lake through a 750 foot line and distributed to some 300 families through too Miles of underground pipe. Addison county which has a Long history of extreme drought conditions once saw National guardsmen trucking water from the Lake under a operation Dence that the birth control pills Are too per cent Safe either. The of Day a 10-Man committee headed by or. Louis m. Heilman chairman of the department of obstetrics and gynaecology at state University a Brooklyn medical Center placed responsibility for tile pills Correct usage on the individual physician. This prompted the up Survey. A each physician must evaluate the advantages and risks of this method of contraception in comparison with other available methods or with no contraception at All a the report said. The Fra has agreed to accept the committees recommendations on dropping the time limits for the Oral contraceptives and indicated that the order would be issued within the next two months. Or. John w. Huffman president of the Chicago gynaecological society said the abolishing of the time limits was a it seems to me that of there a a disadvantage to taking it for three or four years there a a disadvantage to taking it for one year. The Hazard of the Pill is probably less than the Hazard of being pregnant a he said. Or. Gall Anderson director of gynaecologists at los Angeles county Hospital said a i concur with the Fra report on lifting the two year limit on the Pill. However i am still dubious about possible Side effects and doctors should be on the Lookout for them. A i recommend that my patients Stop using the Pill after two years for at least several or. Hugh r. K. Barber the director of obstetrics and gynaecology at new York s Lenox Hill Hospital As Well As a clinical professor at Cornell medical school and past president of the new York gynaecological society expressed uneasiness about Oral contraceptives. A my feeling is of we could use anything else for birth control it would be better a he said. A i will continue to limit usage of the Pill to a a year or a year and a Barber said he was concerned Over possible Long Range Side effects and added he thought women were becoming a a uneasy about Oral contraceptives a especially after this oceanographic projects have commercial value new York up a Many big companies Are spending Large sums on oceanographic research but until very recently no one except the Oil companies engaged in offshore drilling could figure on any return on the investment. Now the undersea division of Westinghouse electric corp. At Baltimore has made a breakthrough earning substantial Revenue during the past year with its Cachalot sustained deep diving system according to Larry Somers Westinghouse Ocean Engineer. Westinghouse has rented out the Cachalot equipment for $80,-000 a month for two important emergency jobs a one at Smith Mountain dam va., for a repair project deep under water on the Power dams outlet grates and the other for closing the Wells and recovering a huge offshore drilling platform of Gulf Oil corp. Wrecked by a Hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico. A this demonstrates beyond All doubt the commercial practicality of oceanographic projects to enable divers to live for periods of As Long As a week under deep water conditions and to work at Depths of 200 to 450 feet for four hours a Day or More a Somers said Somers said Westinghouse Ocean engineers believe the Cachalot system named for the sperm whale can be built for Safe use at Depths of perhaps 1,500 feet and that it ultimately May enable divers to put in almost an eight hour working Day in the Depths. By contrast a scuba diver or a a hard hat diver with old fashioned equipment can work Only a few minutes on each dive at Depths of 200 feet and must go through decompression after every dive. The Cachalot consists of two Chambers. In the larger one divers live for a week at a time under atmospheric conditions simulating the pressure they must endure while diving this chamber is kept on the surface. The smaller submersible chamber is lowered by a Crane into the water and raised the same Way. What will it be useful for in addition to Salvage and repair work a eventually we believe Cachalot will be extremely useful in mining the offshore floor of the oceans for minerals that Are becoming scarce on the Earth a land areas a Somers said. A a in be had a lot of Calls since the report came out and some women Are left with the impression that it Wasny to Complete and contained too Many a ifs buts and wherefores a he said. Or. Richard Day medical director of the planned parenthood federation praised the committees report As a justifying the position we and otters have taken. That position is that As far As is known the pills Are Safe a he said. The chairman of the department of obstetrics and gynaecology at the University of California medical Center in san Francisco or. Ernest w. Page said he would a continue to recommend the Pill quite freely with no concern at a a occasionally i have run into cases of a woman a menstrual flow not coming Back again after the Pill is discontinued but it usually starts again a he said. Or. James Anderson chief resident physician in obstetrics at memorial Hospital in Charlotte n.c., said a the report Hasni to changed my mind any. At first i was More sceptical than a lot of doctors but from All the reports it would be pretty hard to incriminate the Washington up a the Senate Public works committee monday decided to hold up legislation which would extend the Federal governments authority to contract apparently Senate tightens ship Laws Washington up a the Senate spurred by the fiery sinking of the cruise ship Yarmouth Castle voted monday to bar from .
