Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuttifoy, February 1971 THE LETHMIDGE HEftAlD ft i Frenchman in li for Pontiffs job VATICAN CITY (AP) A Frenchman has a good chance of becoming the first non-Italian Pope in 4Vi centuries. Soundings among Vatican offi- cials and observers show that as things stand now Jean Marie Cardinal VUlot is considered the man most likely to succeed Pope Paul on his retirement or death. The cardinal, 65, is tall and robust. He has a reputation for being candid, punctual and open-minded. Cardinal Villot holds down the Vatican's No. 1 and No. 2 posts under the Pope: secretary of state and chamberlain of the church. As recurrent rumors in Vati- can circles have it, the present pontiff is thinking of retiring when he reaches age 75, just 20 months from now. OTHERS MENTIONED Others besides Cardinal Villot thought to be consideration for two fellow French cardinals, Gabriel Garron, head of the Vatican Congregation for Edu- cation, and Francois Marty, archbishop of Paris and head of the French conference of bish- ops. Two Italian prospects are Antonio Cardinal Porna, arch- bishop of Bologna and head of the Italian bishops-conference, and Cardinal Pellegrino. The last non-Italian Pope was Adrian VI, a Dutchman who held the office 1522-23. Before the second Vatican ec- umenical council, a non-Italian Pope was virtually unthinkable. Now the Roman Curia, or cen- tral Vatican governing body, is greatly so Cardinal Villot and the other French prospects stand a much better chance. Bom into a landowner's fam- ily in the Clermont diocese, on Oct. 11, 1905, Cardinal VUlot was ordained a priest in 1930. He was named a bishop in 1954 as a coadjutor in the Paris archdiocese, in 1959 he was named coadjutor to the arch- bishop of Lyon. The second Vatican council brought him to Rome and he was made a cardinal in 1965.

Acroll buys Republic CLOSE LOOK CARDINAL VILLOT Cadmium poison blamed for death TOKYO (AP) A woman who committed suicide two years ago after complaining of back and limbs pains had kid- neys which contained parts per million of metallic cadmium, a Japanese professor reported today. Prof. Jun Kobayashi of Okay- ama University, 370 miles west of Tokyo, told an interviewer the high concentration of cad- mium probably caused the pains. Officials said earlier the pains probably drove Takako Nakamura, 28, to jump off a speeding train into a river north of Tokyo Aug, Cadmium is a white, mallea- ble element, used mostly to make metal alloys of low melt- iog point. Miss Nakamura worked for bw years at the Toho Zinc Co., north of Tokyo, where she shaved cadmium bars. Kobayashi said the cadmium concentration in Miss Naka- mura's kidneys was "the high- est known in tthe world." He said persons of her age usually have between ppm and ppm of cadmium in their Mdneys. Kobayashi said he conducted a study of Miss Nakamura's in- ternal organs at the request of her mothtr, who had her daugh- ter's body exhumed Jan. 15 to determine the cause of the pains. In Toronto, Dr. V. L. Tidey, chief of occupational health services for the Ontario depart- ment of health, said in an inter- view last night that the de- partment has encountered prob- lems with cadium poisoning but there have been no deaths. He said two men recently wre treated in a London, Ont., hospi- tal after using a cutting torch to take the heads off bolts while working on construction of a pipeline. The men were in an enclosed chamber that inhibited ventila- tion and were not aware that the bolts had been plated with cadmium. The result was se- vere lung irrigation and their lungs filled with fluid. Dr. Tidy said this was the most common symptom of cad- mium contamination. Pressure on to maintain death penalty RED DEER (CP) It is the policy of the federal gov emment to abolish the death penalty, Robert Thompson me-time national leader of the Social Credit party, said here Mr. Thompson, now Progres sive Conservative MP for Re< Deer, said during an interview that there is tremendous pres sure on Liberal members _ tc make the present legislation permanent. But if there was a free vote in parliament, the legislation wouldn't pass, he said. "However, the pressure from caucus discipline likely will re suit in the present legislation being made permanent." Legislation to abolish th death penalty except for the murder of policemen and pris on guards was introduced in 1967 for a five-year trial pe- riod. Since then the cabinet ha commuted all death sentence to life imprisonment.

Experiments by Prof. William Jarrett of Glasgow University show that myeloid leukemia, a relatively common kind of blood cancer tn children, is caused in cats by a virus. Lymphatic leu- kemia, another principal type, also results in cats from a virus. Dr. Francis Hoe, a leukemia expert at the Chester Beatty In- stitute in London, said today that scientists should take a fresh look at whether the same virus that causes leukemia in cats can cause the disease in man. If (here is a myeloid leukemia virus for cats, is there any dan- ger for man from cats carrying the virus? Roe asked. "I think we have no idea of the answer. "Jarrett may have developed a method for investigating mye- loid leukemia in cats that could be of some value of investigat- ing the disease in man." Jarrett reported his findings last month after receiving grant for fur- ther studies from the British cancer research campaign. He said today the discovery repre- sented only a small step toward a cure for the disease. "This helps toward the discov- ery of the causes of leukemia, which obviously must be known before any thoughts of a cure can be he said.
