It is illegal hceau.se it is dan- gerous, preventing detection of urea si lumors and requiring very delicate application if the treatment is to be succesful. All too often, quacks give over- large injections too frequently, using low-quality silkonc since they arc unable to obtain the h i g h-grade material legally available to the tiny handful of practitioners licensed to use it for experimental purposes. Most doctors recommend no more than a small increase by Ihc implant method say one bra-size. 'And they're often as- tonished by Ihe husband's ideas of what is says Dr. John Williams of Los Angeles.

Summarizing (heir conclu-; sions from research, Lev and Valdimir Bankovsky point out in the latest issue of New Times magazine that Tokyo is sinking even faster than Venice. While Venice has subsided by about 18 centimetres in the last 50 years, this is annual rate of .subsidence in Tokyo, Since the Second World War the easlcrn .sector of Tokyo has sunk more than two metres. Bangkok, capital of Thailand, is sinking at the rate of seven centimetres a year. The In- dian cities of Madras and Bonv iay are going under slowly but icfinitely. The most popular explana- ion of subsidence in scientific irclcs has been that most oastal cities stood above nlcnsively exploited deposits if artesian waters, oil or gas. Tiercfore the surrounding rock trata under these cities was contracting and if water could pumped in again, the orig- nal pressure would be restored md all would bo well. Out, say the Soviet scientists, cities were swallowed up hy he sea in the ancient past he- ore such wells were dug or natural resources under the earth exploited. In Bombay, for instance, tho exploitation of natural gas and oil began only n recent years and subsidence ante-dates Hits. STRICT LAWS Since 1901 the Japanese have >een enforcing strict Inws iboul the use of subterranean waters hut these conservation neasures have not the rate of annual subsidence, Moreover, It has been observed :hat soil docs not always sink n the spots where gas deposits are most Intensively exploited. in short, say the Russians, the explanation blaming cavities left under the earth hy men is both simplistic and unscientific. Believe they have found a more accurate explanation through ncotectonlcs, a science they claim was founded by Acadc mician V. A, Obruchev some 25 years ago. Hitherto, Ibey ex plain, scientists believed tha1 the earth had entered into slate of temporary tectonic (structural) rest after Ihe mighty upheavals which pro- rocligioii5, so vast that there is >ractically no way lo cope with hern. Scientists, say the Russians, have observed that as a rule inking cities are In regions vhcrc a ncolcctonic process is active. Sinking cities all stand on tho surface of mighty sedimentary filling vast depressions or folds in the earth's crust. The Bankovsky brothers de- scribe the tectonic process !ollows: "There Is reason lo believe hat tectonic flexures arose result of one Mock of the earth's crust piling upon anoth- er over the deep iaclined frac- ture dividing them. Tho edges of the bottom rock sag, form- "ng depressions that sre grad- .tally filled with sedimentary Sometimes the advancing clocks, acting like the blade of a giant bulldozer, press the loose rock into folds, crack Ihem and raise them up In mountain ridges." UNLUCKY VKNrCB This is the process said to hn taking place in the area of tho Adriatic Sea. Venice is unlucky precisely because it, stand1! on a spot where UK: upward thrust of sedimentary rock Is no long- compensating tin subsi- dence of the lower massif. In Japan, the southern part of Honshu island is advancing forcefully upon the northern, causing tectonic subsidence of the Kanto plain together with Tokyo, Yokohama and other cities. The Soviet scientists helievo that man cannot, as yet, pit himself against these tectonic processes, and so the only way to save such places may be to construct a system of protec- tive dams. They say that in tho most affected ccuntrisfi, not enough funds are provided by governments (o study tho pro- cess, whereas there are now 20 tectonic centres in the Soviet Union, equipped! to observe changes in the physical fields of the earth. As a program for saving big cities anrl other areas threaten- ed by subsidence they suggest the organization of a global tectonic service to make 3 thorough study of (Jic move- ments of earth's crust and re- laled problems. From this would follow the planning of measures to protect sinking cities. Nickname street Berime corner' MIAMI, Fla.
