Silence wasn't in cards for Niagara Falls man NIAGARA FALLS, OnL (CP) At iho afic of 50 Lloyd Johnston of Niagara Falls was faced a major protilcm. He had undergone an opera- tion for removal of his voice box. The choice in front of him was finding a new method of talking or remain- ing silent from then on.

Imperial Chemical Industries, B giant concert! usually known by ils initials ICI, says it is en- couraged by tests on a synthetic cigarette mixing four parts of a secret wood pulp product with one part tobacco, U reports lab- oratory tests on mice indicate this will meet health objections. The substitute cigarette has fllrcady cost about 510 million in joint development with Imperial Tobacco, a tobacco firm. It "looks, smokes, smells, burns and tastes" like regular tobacco, Thai's the claim of E. J. Cnllard, ICI chairman, Another firm, Sicbc Gorman Holdings, is pinning hopes on a "charcoal cloth" material for cigarellc filters. Working jointly with Hnlish American Tobacco, Siehe Gor- man said the material shows promise o[ removing certain poisonous ingredients from to- bacco smoke. Tlie charcoal cloth, made by baking a woven synthetic fibre, was originally developed as a filler for military respirators. As with Id's project, [he Siche Gorman discovery still must pass future tests, but the firm hopes il will eventually prove to be a more effective fil- ler than exisling ones on ciga- rettes. Both products are expected to lake years to develop. ICE says if it goes ahead with plans for a synthetic tobacco plant ils first cigarettes won't be on the mar- ket for Iwo or three years.

The goals will he lifted down the mountain by helicopter to trucks standing" by for (he eight hour trip lo Khunda Mountain. To keep Irack of Iho goals on Shuntla Mounlain, biologists ttlll place brightly colored streamers and miniature radio transmitters around their necks.

His doctor diagnosed cancer of the lar- ynx. Treatment failed to re- move the growth and in June, 1970, he entered hospital for removal of Ihe laryiu. "Naturally I was he said. "It was a great psy- chological shock for me. I made my living by talking. I: they had cut off my right arm it wouldn't have bothered me as much." Tho first three weeks he spent in hospital were Iho worst. "I tried lo write cvery- Ihing I wanlcd lo say. U was pure frustration. I'm such a poor writer that people would just throw the note back at me and say they didn't under- stand. I to learn how to talk." Then Mr. Johnston learned of a coining convention of the New Voice Club of the Niag- ara Frontier, meeting in Buf- falo. Through this club, he was given free speech lessons.

"It takes said Mr. Johnston. you get ex- cited or emotional, if won't work at all." He said one invention which has helped some people over- come their handicap is an electronic larynx. This device produced vibrations in Iho lower end of the vocal tract. These vibrations were formed into words by use of tho tongue, lips and teeth in the same way a normal speaker produced sounds. "These Founds are rather monotone and most doctors involved wilh this problem don't recommend Mr. Johnslon said. "They regard these vibrators only as a crutch lo used when all else has failed. "Hut crutch or not, II they developed nn nvlificial voice box that produced nearly nat- ural sound, we would all be after it, regardless of price."
