TAURUS (April 20 May Overly sensitive people, freak- ish circumstances plague any travels, particularly the begin- nings of journeys. Depend mainly on your own resources at work. GEMINI (May 21 June Caution is rewarded today by Salt Mines Best For N-Waste UNITED NATIONS (AP) A United States Atomic Energy Commission study has con- cluded that the best permanent burial grounds for highly radio- active waste from the nuclear power industry will be salt mines. The report said there are four major salt formations in the United States that meet the cri- teria for disposal, two in Michi- gan, one in New York and one in Kansas. The AEC now is working out details for a "federal demon- stration disposal facility" in a salt mine in the central United States, presumably Kansas. A key aspect of the disposal process, the report said, is to solidify the radioactive waste "achieving a substantial in- crease in the safety associated with the storing and disposal of the high-level waste from the nuclear power industry." The study was conducted for the AEC by ,a team of experts from the Battelle Memorial In- stitute, Pacific Northwest Labo- ratory in Richland, Wash., and the Oak Ridge National Labora- tory in Oak Ridge, Tenn. It was reported Tuesday in a paper delivered to a symposium on the environmental aspects of nuclear power plants sponsored by the International Atomic En- ergy Agency arid the AEC. security.

The permanent six-per-cen rate increase applies to all shipped products except western grain and grain products and fresh fruits and vegetables, which the commission tentatively said could go up five per cent. In addition to the six-per-cent increase sought last November and grated today, the railways last March sought a second six-per-cent increase. On May 27, the ICC granted a temporary [ive-per-cent increase in rates for most products, giving the railways an effective 11-per-cent rise in freight revenues. An investigation of whether the temporary May 27 increase should be made permanent is continuing. Former City Man Charged [n Truck Crash Y E L L 0 WKNIFE, N.W.T.

Disease May Be Linked With Soviet Epidemic GENEVA (AP) A cholera type intestinal disease which may be connected with the cur rent cholera epidemic in Russia broke out in the United Arab Republic several weeks ago sources close to the UN Work Health Organization said today. The sources said WHO has re- ceived no official notification oi the disease from Egyptian health authorities. They said the virus has not been positively identified, and the disease pre- sumably is a new, hitherto un- known type of cholera. WHO declined to discuss the matter officially as long as it has not received a formal re- port from Egypt. The sources said the existence of the disease was reported by travellers from Egypt con nected with some of the interna- tional organizations with head- quarters in Genva. The travel- ler s themselves apparently were not infected. WHO officials refused to spec- ulate whether the current cpi- Sliarp, Thant Will Confer OTTAWA (CP) External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp announced Tuesday that he and U Thant will meet Aug. 24 when the United Nations secretary- general is here to attend the biennial conference of the World Association of World Federal- ists. The talks "on a number of United Nations issues" will fol- low a lunch Mr. Sharp is giving for the secretary-general. FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE! demic in virus also has not been identified so in Egypt. Other sources said that Polish authori- ties have ordered health checks of all travellers arriving at Warsaw airport from the Middle East, but that report could not be confirmed in Geneva. The WHO spokesman declined to comment on whether there was any danger of the Egyptian illness spreading to Western countries. He said earlier there appeared to be little danger of the Russian epidemic being car- ried into Western Europe. He said Soviet authorities seem to be taking all necessary measures against the disease and therefore there is "abso- lutely no reason why it should spread." The spokesman said the So- viet health ministry briefly in- formed the Geneva world organ- ization of a "local outbreak" of cholera in the area of Astra- khan by cable, saying that all required steps are being taken and that a detailed report would follow later. The spokesman stressed that cholera is a water-borne disease carried in the stool and not passed oh directly from one per- son to another, like smallpox or similar diseases, and there- fore can be easily contained in any country with an efficient sanitation and health service.
