Betty Grable and Nat King Cole died there And occasionally stars check Mine produces one pound of diamonds daily MWADUI, Tanzania (Reu- ter) Every day at the Wil- liamson Diamond Mine in northwest Tanzania, some 000 tons of earth and rock is quarried and sifted to produce a handful of diamonds weigh- ing perhaps one pound. The massive modern plant at Mwadui handled about tons on ore last year to produce metric carats of diamonds. These brought Tanzania a healthy mil- lion in foreign exchange and left the company with an op- erating surplus of around million. These figures, announced at a recent board meeting, were particularly gratifying to Tan- zanians for this was the first year of operations under en- tirely local management. The Mwadui mine was dis- covered in 1940 by a Canadian mining geologist, John Wil- liamson of Montreal, and has been producing diamonds ever since. Williamson died of cancer in 1958, and the com- pany was then taken over by the government and Harry Oppenheimer's South African De Beers Co. in equal partnership. Later the De Beers share was taken over by another Oppenheimer subsidiary, the Bahamas-based Willcroft Co., and until last year the man- agement of the mine stayed firmly in foreign hands. From a high point in the early 1960s of about 300 for- eigners and their families at the Mwadui township, only about 20 are left, filling a few positions for which Tan- zanians have not yet acquired the necessary skills and ex- perience. But their numbers are shrinking rapidly and in a year or two the last of them is expected to leave. Their places are being taken by a new generation of highly qualified Tanzanians, many of whom benefited from a massive training effort, which cost an estimated million over the last decade. Bright young men were sent to study abroad, in Britain or Canada, for periods of up to five years to learn the in- tricate skills involved in run- ning a business which em- ploys about and uses highly complicated machinery worth millions of dollars. PRICES RISING At the recent board meeting in Mwadui it was agreed that the mine could, with luck, continue to operate produc- tively for another 20 years. In 1972 the life expectancy of the pit was put at only five to seven years, but a boom in diamond prices is making it profitable to mine less productive areas. For Tanzania the problem is not only a commercial one. For Mwadui has a population of around now. with some of the best educational, medical and social facilities of any town in the country. The effects of a closure would undoubtedly be ex- tremely severe to the econ- omy of the poor and mainly agricultural Shinyanga re- gion. Security is a real problem, as at any diamond mine, though no estimates of losses are available. Gangs of up to 100 men have been known to cut through the fence and take away sacks on ore, braving trained German shephard dogs and gunmen with orders to jhoot if necessary serious losses are thought to take place within the separation plant itself, despite heavy security. Exhausted BURBANK, Calif. (AP) Pop singer Mama Cass Elliott collapsed in an NBC studio corridor Monday night while waiting to appear in a taping of the Tonight Show, a network spokesman said. An NBC spokesman said the incident apparently was due to exhaustion, brought on by a recent singing tour. into St. John's Hospital for a facelift or a dryout following a bender. For 30 years the hospital has been for the stars. The latest patient is Richard Burton, being treated for influenza! tracheal bronchitis. Why do stars prefer St. John's over the dozen other large hospitals in the Los Angeles area? Aside from the medical reputation of St. John's, its location is convenient for residents of Beverly Hills, Bel Air and other high-rent districts. Also, the entertainment industry has been closely associated with St. John's since its beginning in the early 1940s. Among the early supporters were Louis B. Mayer, Irene Dunne and bandleader Kay Kyser, for whom the hospital library is named. Over the years St. John's has benefited from movie premieres and Hollywood balls Some of the proceeds from How The West Was Won go for the benefit of the hospital. It still receives a sizeable cheque every time the film is on television. A major reason stars favor St. John's is the hospital's knowledge in dealing with celebrities. "We believe they are sick people who deserve the same kind of care and privacy that other patients said an administrator, Jack Kelly. ENSURES PRIVACY Stars who wish to ensure privacy can rent VIP rooms in full view of nurses' stations and secure from intruders. The rooms rent for about a day. Stars who are sick often do not want the fact known, and St. John's co-operates. Recently a free-lance reporter was evicted for trying to invade a star's sickroom. One of the problems caused by the famous patients is the flood of get-well messages. The worst came in 1965, when Nat King Cole was in the hospital for four months because of cancer. His press agent let out the word that the singer would be cheered to hear from his fans. Fifty thousand pieces of mail arrived and the post office finally agreed to forward them to Cole's office. Other patients over the years have included Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, Barbara Stanwyck, Jimmy Durante, Lawrence Welk and Frank Sinatra. St. John's, which has grown from 89 beds in 1942 to today's 611, is operated by the Sisters of Chanty of Leavenworth, Kan. The hospital has a million annual budget and specializes in psychiatric and geriatric services. fire stone STORES Corner 3rd Ave. 8th St. S.
