Researchers said but they said further information was needed before firm conclusions could be reached there Are nonliving non biological processes which could also explain the unexpected abundance of oxygen and other activity they said the higher than expected oxygen readings came from a test tube in Viking s life seeking experimental package the head of the project s biology Section Harold Klein. A Aid the unanticipated oxygen could he the result of photosynthesis the process by which living Plant life in Earth produces oxygen a More Likely explanation he said.

Klein said he doubted it because of an absence of Light in the experimental chamber.

The Center reports also that death due to cerebrovascular disease a or strokes a dropped 8 7 per cent from 214,313 deaths in 1973 to 195,630 in 1975 of the 15 leading causes of death the Center reports Only three have showed an upward trend in the last two years the cancer rate increased 4 2 per cent the suicide rate in creased 5 per cent and the murder rate increased 4 1 per cent the census report shows that the growing proportion of elderly people in the country is linked directly to the falling birth rate it is no secret that in the last few years women have been giving birth to an average of less Man two children each bringing the total Fertility rate to an All time Low of i 8 in 1975 therefore the proportion of people 65 and older has grown until today they comprise to 5 per cent of the population. That compares to 9 8 per cent in 1970 at the same time the total population of the country Gre by 16 million to 214 4 Mullion from 1974 to 1975, or 79 percent the report shows a the amount of increase was greater than it had been for Hie three previous years largely because of the admission of about 130,000 vietnamese the report says Quot without the vietnamese the population would have been i 56 million a
