(AP Wirephoto) Mobile tuberculosis x-ray machines considered safe ove is SOUTHAMPTON. England (API The Cunard liner Queen Elizabeth 2 docked bore two days late from New York, battered by a freak Atantic storm Kit happy lo report a reborn shipboard romance. Winds raging at 100 miles an hour hit Ibu ton Cunarder for days of the crossing, and for 24 hours she was forced to heave lo. Captain Mortimer Hehir, 57, said: "II was Ihe worst weather I have ever experienced, not so much in intensity as duration. Nobody in the ship had ever known winds of that velocity to last so long." The romance is that of movie actress Natalie Wood and her ex-husband, actor Robert Wagner. They di- vorced eight years ago after four years of marriage. Wagner, here for the premiere of bis movie Dr. Syn, said his first meeting with his ex-wile after their divorce had been quite by chance. "Timing is everything in he commented. "It lust happened, and as a result we've been very happy and bar! a lovable, enjoyable time." "We love each said Miss trim in a Irouscr suit.

OTTAWA (CP) Canada should not follow a United Ktatcs proposal to halt mobile screening for tuberculosis because of possible radiation danger, says the medical direc- tor of the Canadian Tubercu- losis and Respiratory Disease Association. Dr. C. L. Jeancs said In an interview today that radia- tion doses from mobile ma- chines used in Canada are "well below safe levels." 'Many miniature x-ray units love a higher dosage than the p, e said. "Hut (lie dose from the miniature units still is below the safe al- lowable levels." Dr. Jeanes said the amount of chest TB still found in many parts of Canada, especially re- Depai mole areas, is large enough lo justify the use of routine screen- ing. The American health depart- ment said Sunday it had asked the stales In halt the use at mobile screening because of the. possibilities of radiation overex- posure when TB is now "almost non-existent in many parts ct the country." Dr. A. II. Booth, acting direc- tor of the health department's environmental health directo- rate, said in a separate inter- view thai the federal govern- ment has no plans to follow the U.S. move. The government is studying all radiation-emitting devices and plans lo issue covering reg- ulations, he said. The badly decomposed body of Dawn Vivian Mueller, 17, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Mueller, 2310 Gtb Ave. S., was discovered in the coulee area about three miles southwest of the city by Dr. 11.

Latest speculation on Parlia- ment Hill is that announcement of dissolution and a June gen- eral election will come this week, but llio predictions now amount only to rumor. However, the talk around Par- liament is almost exclusively about a June general election and the is that such talk can have .1 way of forcing such predictions to come true. The Commons is balking on government legislation. Sooner or later that attitude may force the government to call a halt and ask for a new mandate from the a year before il is required by constitu- tional law. But a government official, trying to dampen June-election talk, says the backlog of unfin- i s h e d' Commons government bills hanging fire- will clear quickly once the ear- ly-May deadline for dissolution in advance of a June election passes. The Conservative opposition, apparently convinced that an election is in the offing, has cho- sen a debating topic for twfoy that its polls indicate is a key voter concern the state of the economy. The Conservative non-confi- dence motion, debating issue for the day under Commons rules, assails the Liberal government on the grounds that it has failed to produce measures to gener- ate employment, encourage in- vestment or reduce uncertainly about its economic programs. A recent Conservative poll showed those to be the main voter issues.

LONDON (CP) The govern- rncnl was faced with new union lurmoil today as thousands of rail workers defied a court older and walked off their jobs, plunging the world's busiest rail traffic centre into chaos. Prime Minister Heath now faces cither persuading the mili- tant rail men lo go back to operations or at- tempting to seek heavy court fines on the union treasury. The government's handling of tiie rail crisis may well estab- lish whether the Heath-spon- sored Industrial Relations Act can become effective. Britain has a history of union turmoil which, some economists main- tain, lias been constantly stran- gling the country's progress. Seeking to end the national rail slowdown, tiic government last week went before the new- ly-established Industrial Rela- tions Court which ordered the 80J.OOO workers to resume ''nor- mal" work for a H-day cooling- off period. The men are seeking a Iti-per-cent pay increase; Ihe nationalized rail board lias of- fered 12.5.
