Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta lung cancer deaths could be prevented-Taylor CALGARY (CP) A largi portion of cancer deaths could be prevented with co-operation between scientisls and the pub- lic, says the executive director of tlie Canadian Cancer Society. Dr. R. M. Taylor of Toronto, addressing delegates to an edu- cational conference of Ihe si ciety, said it is estimated that about 90 per cent of the yearly lung cancer deaths in Canada could be prevented if people would stop smoking. "The only controversy about Hie role of tobacco in the occur- rence of this disease is the controversy being earned on by the representatives of the tobacco indsutry. "The scientific community has long been convinced." He pointed out that the U.S. government is devoting bil- lion to a co-ordinated scientific attack on cancer. "In the years ahead, more and more causes of cuncer wi be identified." If Canadians want to be rid of present forms of the disease they must "at least co-operate and be prepared to act on the advice of the scientist." Seek poppy curb WASHINGTON (Renter) _ A learn of U.S. agricultural and I economic experts flew lo Tur- key Friday to discuss ways of helping projects which are to replace opium-poppy production by farmers in the Turkish prov- inces. Tiie mission is an out- growth of the Turkish govern- ment's decision to curb the cul- tivation of opium poppies and provide incomes for farmers with other agricultural projecls.

Based on productivity, Mr. Kierans said, the Canadian dol- lar should be worth 85 cents in relation lo the U.S. dollar. The fund, which now totals billion could get along well on The other billion should be given to the Canadian Development Corp. to invest in growth in- dustries in the U.S. Then, Mr. Kierans said, the federal government should re- move tariff barriers and adopt new tax policies oriented to the consumer and lo help Canadian industry compete with foreign competitors. Mr. Kierans, who left the federal cabinet last April be- cause he wanted to "challenge long-established economic poli- cies and said this would give consumers more money to buy "things made in this country." After tariff briefs are re- moved, at say 10 per cent a year over 10 years, Mr. Kier- ans said Canadian contolled firms should be subject to a 30- per-cent corporate tax rate while foreign contolled inter- ests would pay the tax rate that exists in their own coun- Monday, February 7, 1972 THE tETHBRIDGE HERAID 7 Pollution money spending rapped WASHINGTON (A P) Poor people in United States cities get sicker quicker from pollution while Ihe govern- ment spends most of its ecol- ogy funds on the needs of sub- urbanites, a group of urban specialists said Friday.

Faced with such conditions, most Americans would pull out of Canada and be forced to sell their plants to Canadians. While admitting that re- moving tariff barriers would force some existing Canadian companies to go out of busi- ness, Mr. Kierans said the ef- fect wouldn't be severe be- cause the firms that survive would buy out the bankrupt "it would just be a transfer of capacity." Mr. Kierans said Canada is one of the few countries in the world without any ground rules for foreign ownership and "business wants to keep it that way." fhere wasn't much time for Canada to decide whether it wanted to be a truly independ- ent, industrial nation or a sup- plier of raw materials. LONG, COLD BATTLE FAIRBANKS, Alaska (Reu- ter) A fire that caused an estimated million damage de- stroyed three planes at a hang- ar of Interior Airways here. There were no injuries, but firemen had to fight the fire in 17 degree temperature for four hours. Cause of the fire was not known. By DONNA BADNETT Kingston Whig-Standard KINGSTON, Ont. (CP) In the space age, it is not difficult to put a human body into "deep freeze" and thaw it at a later dale. But technology has not yet ad- vanced to the point where, three Queen's University scientists say, the process will leave the body undamaged. It is not possible now to have a frozen body revived and have the diseased organs that caused death replaced, they say. That is "futuristic thinking." In recent years, many dead persons have been put into deep freeze by surviving relatives. The parents of a young Mont- real girl, who died of a kidney disease recently, had her body frozen in Los Angeles and put into storage in the hope that sci- ence of the future can apply successful thawing and a cure. The Queen's scientists, a mi- crobiologist, a physiologist and biologist, said in interviews that human cells can be frozen indefinitely in tissue cultures and thawed without damage, survived degrees below zero and lived a normal life. CALLED CRYONICS The new field iis called cryon- iics, derived from cryogenics, a study of the behavior of matter at temperatures close to abso- lute 273 degrees centigrade. All important, said Dr. Robert Stewart, head of Queen's micro- biology department, is the rate at which the temperature drops. Some insects have temperatures of 140 "Very rapid or very slmv I human could be frozen and then freezing makes large water brought back lo life again." crystals which destroy or dam- Of human hibernation, phy- age cells.

"Ice expands in the last four degrees he said. "Ice crystals tear the cells apart if they're of a certain size. "There is no evidence right now that a body as big as a do it. It might cost million to freeze and thaw the first per- son." Dr. A. E. R. Downs, professor of biology, works with mosqui- to-like insects that have a built- in ability to withstand periods of freezing in their larva stage. Scientists in Ms department have frozen adult insects in glycol and solid carbon dioxide at about 140 degrees below zero. The freezing period was rela- tively a few days. Dr. Abrahams said the proc- ess of freezing and thawing a cat or a dog creates "teclinolog- ical problems that are pretty horrible.''
