Arabs Offer $400 Million to
Lisbon To Deny Bases to U.S.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Tor-tuga! has received an Arab offer of $4(10 million to refuse renewal of U S. airbase rights in the Azores, according to I S intelligence sources.
Arab representatives also were said to have offered to lift the oil embargo against Portugal.
The Arab aim, as U.S. intelligence men view it, is to deny the U.S. use of the key I^ijes airbase in the Azores for any future arms airlifts to Israel,
The treaty covering U.S. use of the Azores base ran out in February. Negotiations are under way on renewing those base rights for another five years.
Most U S allies and friends, apparently concerned about displeasing the Arabs, refused permission for the U S. to use
l.ajes, permitting them to haul big loads 6,(NHI miles from the U.S. to Israel
The U.S. air force also was able to fly F-4 Phantom jet fighters to Israel by refueling them in the air from tanker planes based in the Azores which is about UHM) miles west of Gibraltar.
The U.S. normally maintains no combat planes at Lajet, only refueling and maintenance facilities manned by about 1,000 specialists who service Military Airlift Command flights to southern Europe and the Mediterranean area.
Reports of the Arab offer were said to have come from Portuguese political sources, prompting some l.S. officials to suggest that Portugal might be Irving to pressure the U.S. into raising the ante for retaining rights to the Azores
Arab activities in support of anti-Portuguese guerilla movements in Portugal’s African colonies, even though the new government in Lisbon is moving toward freeing those colonies

“The cobwebs in my rather messy house are sore spots I admit,“ a reader writes, “but am I in any danger from the spiders that weave them? A friend tells me some spiders have a bite that can kill."
There’s not much chance that our reader has anything to fear from spiders in her home Spiders produce a venom that paralyzes the insects they feed upon, but most spiders don't bite man ll they do, most of them leave only a small localized spot of irritation on the skin However, there are several species that can cause severe illness and on rare1 occasions (‘veil death One that almost everyone has heard of is the black widow spider, which lives in the tropics and southern part of the* North American continent Dangerous Another, not so well known blit more dangerous, is the brown recluse spider This' spider apparently used to be confined to warm regions. Inn in recent years it has migrated northward us far as the Great Lakes region Both the black widow and the brown recluse like to hide in dark places.
•lust in case you come upon one* of these two. you might do well to memorize their characteristics a black widow is jet-black, about half an inch long, with a red spot on the abdomen resembling an hourglass It has long, thin legs and lives in trash piles, stacks of wood, barns and in dark areas.
Aching, fever and restlessness are common symptoms of a black widow bite There is cramping of abdominal and other muscles of the body and maybe profuse vomiting, sweating, tremors, delirium and shock.
The black widow bite can be treated bv placing ice packs on the bite site Antivenom horse serum is given in severe cases The patient may need sedatives and relaxing warm baths The brown recluse spider is
about the same size and shape as the black widow and has a distinct dark area on the forward top of its body in the shape of a v john It likes to hide in such places as shoes. folds of obi newspapers and stored clothing or blankets The general symptoms of sickness following the bite of the brown recluse are similar to those suffered by the victim of the black walow But the biti* of the brown recluse is more likely to ulcerate and bleed A form of gangrene occurs around the bite and may spread to an area as wide as .'I inches The gangrene may last for weeks before it spontaneously dries and subsides lf you've been bitten by an unidentified spider or insect. watch the site of the bite and your general condition and report to your doctor if anything unusual develops In the meantime, you may want to get a pesticide to eradicate the spiders which may be lurking in your home

LOS ANGELES (UPI) -Mormons are much less likely to get cancer, perhaps because of clean living and strong family bond®, a ULLA researcher says The death rate from cancer in Utah is only 75 percent of the national average, said Br James Overton, of the UCLA School of Public Health Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints, or Mormons, make up 72 percent of the state’s population In Utah county, which includes the city of Provo and is 90 percent Mormon. the cancer death rate is only 85 percent of the national average for men. and 72 percent for women, Overton said He said that possible factors may he the Mormon ban on smoking and drinking, low
consumption of coffee and tea and rare drug usage, along with the church’s traditional encouragement of physical fitness programs, exercise and outdoor activities
Also, he said, ‘‘They believe in a very strong family structure,” particularly — contrasted with other U.S. social orders — for the elderly, keeping them involved in family and church activities.
Their family life tends to Im* much more stable than that of the general population,” he said
The only religious grouping with a lower cancer incidence than Mormons are members of the Seventh Day Adventist church, which has even stricter dietary and other rules of conduct, Overton said, citing a study at Loma Linda university
in San Bernardino, Calif Studies in New York have shown that the cancer death rate for other Protestants, Catholics and Jews is no different from the national average
