Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta lung cancer deaths could be prevented-Taylor CALGARY (CP) A large portion of cancer deallis could be prevented with co-operation between scientisls and Ilio pub- lic, says the executive director of lira Canadian Cancer Society. Dr. R. M. Taylor of Toronto, addressing delegates to an edu- cational conference of (he si ciety, said it is estimated that about 99 per cent of the yearly lung cancer deaths in Canada could be prevented if people would slop smoking. "The only controversy about Hie role of lobacco in the occur- rence of this disease is the controversy being parried on by the representatives of ihe tobacco indsutiy. "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 c-'jncer ivil be identified." If Canadians want to be rid of present forms of the disease they must "at least co-operate and be prepared to net on the advice of the scientist." Seek poppy curb WASHINGTON (Renter) A team of U.S. agricultural and I economic experts flew to Tur- key Friday to discuss ways of helpirig projects which are to replace opium-poppy production by farmers in the Turkish prov- inces. The 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 projects. Central gets the EDMONTON (CP) A con- servative central bank, "more conservative than any country lias ever is largely to blame for Canada's foreign ownership problems, Eric Kierans, former communica- tions minister, says. Claiming that Canada has been the victim of its own "bad monetary and economic poli- cies since Mr. Kierans told a news conference "there is more cement in Bank of Canada personnel than in Hie building." For one thing, there was S3 billion too much in the bank's foreign exchange fund, an ex- cess thai was artificially keep- ing the value of the Canadian dollar equal to that of the United States dollar and hurt- SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES CARDSTON Mayfair Theatre "GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER In color.

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 lax policies oriented to the consumer and to help Canadian industry compete with foreign competitors. Mr. Kieraus, 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 in buy "things made ill tin's courilry." After tariff briefs arc re- moved, at bay 10 per cent a year over 10 years, Mr. Kier- ans said Canadian contolled firms should be subject to a 30- per-ccnt corporate lax rate while foreign conlolled inler- esLs would pay the tax rate that exists in their own coun- tries- Faced with Gucli conditions, most Americans would pull out of Canada and be forced to sell their plants io 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- fecl wouldn't be severe be- cause Ihe firms that survive would buy out the bankrupt would just be a transfer of capacity." Mr. Kierans said Canada is one of the few countries in Ihe world witboul any ground rules for foreign ownership and "business wants to keep it that way." There wasn't much time for Canada to decide wThelher it wanted to be a truly independ- ent, industrial nation or a sup- plier of raw materials.

Scientists say human body deep freeze not difficult LONG, COLD BATTLE FAIRBANKS, Alaska (Reu- ter) A fire that caused an estimaled million damage de- stroyed three planes at a bang- ar of Interior Airways here. There were no injuries, but firemen had to fight the [ire in 17 degree temperature for four hours. Cause of the fire was not known. By DONNA BATINKTT KingHon Whig-Standard KINGSTON, Onl. (CP) In the space age, it is not difficult to put a human body into "deep freeze" and thaw it at a later date But technology has not yet ad- vanced to the point where, three Queen's University scientists say, Ihe process will leave tile body undamaged. ft is not possible now to have a frozen body revived and have the diseased organs that caused death replaced, Uiey 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 iu 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. Some insects have survived temperatures of 140 degrees below zero and lived a normal life. CALLED CRYONICS The new field iis called cryon- iics, derived from cryogenics, a study of the oehavior of matter at temperatures close to abso- lute 273 degrees centigrade.

Dr. Stewart cited one of the problems in successful deep- freezing of a human body: "As soon as death occurs and even before, degenerative proc- esses are taking place. How much damage is done m these Dr. David Robertson, profes- sor of pathology, said uniform cell freezing is the major prob- lem in freezing procedures. "Ice expands in the last four degrees he said. "Ice crystals tear the cells apart if they're of a certain ze. "There is no evidence right now that a body as big as a lo il. It might cost million lo 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 ethylene glycol and solid carbon dioxide at about 140 degrees below zero. The freezing period was rela- lively a few days. Dr. Abrahams said Ihe proc- ess of freezing and thawing a caL or a dog creates "feclmolog- ical problems that are pretty horrible.'' He did not elaborate.
