Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Auoujt 30, 1972 Now that Russians are gone Egyptians enjoying beaches Hy OKAWIU.K M'ATI'S AGAMY, Egypt (Ilcuter) Now that the Russians Imve left the blaanj: whito samls of this tiny seaside resort, the Egypt- ians arc finding it pleasant (o walk unhhulred on their own beaches. There was a time, not long wlion one could see Ihe Russians each morning and evening trooping down to their spot'ial reserved part of the beach. From a distance, they could be seen flexing their imiscles, for pictures for their families back home and swim- ming In Ihe blue Mediterranean. They mainly young mis- sltemen, sunburned and healthy from their frequent spells on llio beach, enjoying (he kind of duty they a re unlikely t o f i ml n t home. Now, however, they have been sent packing by President Anwar Sadat, who ordered an end to the Soviet military pres- enco of about men in July. Sactat has said that some So- viet inslniclors will renuiin to complete their contracts and Russian civilian technicians are expected to remain. lUit tho young Russian sol- diers have gone and it is almost sad to sec the empty spot on the at Agamy where they used to swim in a group of obinit or -10. They always stayed (ugdher and an Egyptian sailor' tiscd to stop ntlier foreign or Kjjyptian bathers pcnctroling the Russian bench area.

(AP) Trees are being "tortured" in Hamdcn. Their leaves are being plucked off, onn by one, until the trees arc nude. Leaves that grow hack are pressed between plates and passed with cnrbon dioxide. And two men and a woman oro c onst antly pryin g, poking, spying and measuring. But it's for the good of sci- ence and the tree-owner, re- searchers say. Dr. Neil C. Turner and Dr. Gary Hcichcl of the Connecticut agriculture experiment station are simulating the defoliation of the gypsy moths and elm span worms, which ato thousands of acres of leaves in Connecticut this year and last. "People have the feeling that If a tree is defoliated two or years in a row, it will Turner said in an inter- view. Tho study explore that hypothesis. "We suspect that Iho trees ac- tually die because they are starving to death or become .subject to a disease because they are Turner said. Using maplo and oak trees, the scientists, along with Vain sophomore Kathy Woglom, look all the leaves off six trees, 75 pur cent off six more and 50 per conl off a third set. On ono trecr leaves wcro pulled off and put through a machine to measure leaf area. In three weeks, leaves started reappearing on the trees, Turner said. Tho bare Irce produced the most new leaves, but only alwut fif) per cent of its original foli- age, he .said. Half-bare trees snowed less than five per cent new growth of leaves. Trees that had lost 7o per cent of their foliage rcgrew n quarter of their missing leaves. The sizes of the leaf pores were measured, and the ability of the leaves to take nourish- ment from the sun was checked Iry isolating leaver; on the trees inside a chamber and measur- ing the amount of carbon diox- ide they consumed. "The question people- arc ask- ing Is, 'Do we have to Turner said. By learning wliat species are sensitive, tho station hopes to provide an answer and deter- mine at what point spraying is useless to save a tree. Tha home-owner doesn't spray until alter the bugs start chewing, Turner noted. Turner and IleiclicI aren't ready to make any conclusions yet. It will take another season new leaves appear in tbo determine how much energy the tree used up in mid- season to grow new leaves.
