Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta fhurndtiy, Docembor S, 1970 THE IfTHBRIOCe HERAIB Report complete nonsense BONN (AP) West German officials today dismissed as "complete nonsense" a British newspaper report that the United States wants work started immediately on a string of anti invasion atomic mines near West Germany's frontier with East Gennany and Czecho- slovakia. The officials said U.S. forces In Germany have ground-based nuclear explosives but there are no plans to plant these along the East-West border. They said the explosives are not mines that detonate on contact, but must be set off by remote control. The report on plans for the border atomic minefield was carried by the London Daily HVtvrgcc Spacemen rehearse for orbit CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) The Apollo 14 astronauts practiced taking off froiti the moon here while technicians resumed a major check of their spaceship, a test delayed sev- eral days by minor problems. Navy Capt. Alan B. Shepard and navy Cnidr. Edgar D. Mitchell rehearsed in the lunar module simulator while force Maj. Stuart A. Rocsa worked in the command module trainer. Roosa is to orbit the moon alone in February while Shep- ard and Mitchell explore the rugged Fra Mauro Highlands on the lunar surface. The launch- ing is scheduled Jan. 31. Kidnapped boy found safe PARIS (AP) A seven-year- old boy, kidnapped outside his Paris school Monday, was found safe by police Wednesday. The ransom of about was recovered and one of the alleged kidnappers arrested, po- lice announced. A news blackout had been im- posed on Hie story by police to aid in the hunt for the child, Alain Lebard, but the stray was carried by several Paris news- papers. The kidnap followed the pat- tern of that of Carole Benain- ous, snatched outside the same school April 8 and returned un- harmed on payment of a ran- som of about In both cases the kidnappers arrived in a fake taxi shortly before the regular taxi which picks the children up after classes.

Supersonic aircraft hit; cut cause cancer WASHINGTON (AP) Chemical reactions to exhausts from a fleet of supersonic trans- ports could cause 10.000 new cases of skin cancer yearly in the United Stales, a research scientist has (old (AVO members of Congress. The two legislators charge tlie Nixon for a crucial Senate vote on a million SST appropriation the finding. Tlie finding was reported to have been made to the transpor- tation department Monday by Dr. James E. McDonald, a pro- fessor of atmospheric physics at the University of Arizona. He worked on an SST climate and weather modification board of the National Academy of Sci- ences. In a Joint statement given to The Associate-! Press, Senator William Proxmire (Dem. Wis.) and Representative Morris Udall (Dem. Ariz.) said: "These findings by a reputa- ble scic'ntist assigned this study by the National Academy of Sci- ence are mu .1 too important to be ignored. "We believe they are more than sufficient reason to with- hold further funding of the SST until they are either disproved or found in error in some signif- icant respect." OFFICIAL DISAGREES But Surj-cun-Ucncral Jesse Steinfdd took issue with the cancer cause suggestion. In a statement, he cautioned against use of data gathered at a time when scientists knew less about the relations between skin 'cancer and sunlight. Proxmire and Udall, however, said McDonald's findings should be taken seriously. In the process of his investi- gation, they said, he disproved a much publicized fear about the consequences of SST flights: That a fleet of the planes could pump so much water vapor inot Hie atmosphere that resulting ice crystals could cause signifi- cant changes ia weather and cli- mate. But his analysis indicated that projected levels of SST opera- tions could reduce stratospheric ozone and thus increase ul- traviolet radiation by amounts iarge enough to lead to perhaps new cases of skin cancer ia tlie U.S. a year.
