Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, February U. 7HI ItlHMIDCl 17 Pay hasn't caused iuflatioii WASHINGTON (AP) George Schultz, in charge of the U.S. budget, said today wage in- creases generally have not been x cause of inflation and he pre- dicts that the United States can "get control of inflation" this year. Shultz said a strong upswing in output a worker, resulting mainly from management's control of costs is having a stabilizing effect. In construction and some other segments of the economy, wage settlements remain a major problem, Shultz sairt hi an interview with The Asso- ciated Press, and prices still increasing at a rate that is unacceptably high." "But we think the rate is moderating and will continue to said Shultz. director of the office of management and budget. "Across the economy gener- ally the rate of increase in wages has not been such as to cause inflation." Wants to stay in Britain LONDON (AP) Maria Vov- chok, a Russian interpreter who left a Soviet delegation a month ago, said today she wants to stay in Britain and won't talk to Soviet embassy officials about the decision. A barrage of telegrams and letters purportedly from the 22- year-old blonde's parents in Leningrad has been received by Buckingham Palace and the British government asking that she be sent home. British intelligence officers express belief the messages, which were sent through the diplomatic courier system, were manufactured by the Soviet se- cret police, the KGB. Miss Vov- chok said today she does not be- lieve the messages are from her parents. Mis Vovchok defected by slip- ping awav from her escort, walking into a Manchester oo- lice station and asking to stay hi Britain.

Excessive govt. spending main cause of inflation CANBERRA (Reuter) G Arnold Hart, chairman and chief executive officer of the Bank of Montreal, told Austral- ian reporters Monday that ex- Pesticides threaten large birds MORGES, Switzerland (Reu- ter) Chemical pesticides are threatening the survival of the white-tailed or sea eagle, a large European bird of prey, the World Wildlife Fund here says. Although four of the eyries in Holland were guarded by Dutch volunteers during last year's breeding season only one young eagle lived to fly, the fund re- ported. Unhatched eggs in other ncyts contained dead embryos whicl proved on analysis at Utrecht University to contain high dos age of chemical pesticides probably from sea-birds am fish eaten by the eagles. One breeding pair, fed throughout the winter with non contaminated offal from slaugh- ter-houses, raised the onlj young eagle to hatch and live %essive government spending is he main cause of went on to describe the effects. The Canadian banker, who ,as been in Australia for a veek on a business trip, said hat in North America excessive [overnment spending over sev- eral years had set the pattern or higher prices, wages and salaries. Hart said he would welcome a cut in Canadian government snending. and even more a re- duction in taxation. He notec there is heavy unemployment in Canada, with industry suffering :rom lower profit margins be- cause of higher wages and in creased costs of goods. "Unless industry can get back to a more profitable basis am can employ more labor, I can' see how government can spem its wav out of the problems we have." he added. "Normally with high unem ployment you would exoec wages and prices to start to come down because of a re duced demand for goods. Thi has not happened." "Industry is not flat on its back and if it can increas profit margins and get an incen tive for capital expenditure an increased production it can in crease employment." Hart's bank has joined wit the Australian and New Zealan Bank two American banks an the Mitsubishi Bank, to form the Australian International F nance Corporation. Healing Substance- Shrinks Piles, Checks Itch Exclusive healing substance proven to shrink hemorrhoids...and repair damaged tissue. A renowned research institute has found a unique healing sub- stance with the ahiliiy to shrink hemorrhoids painlessly. It re- lieves itching and discomfort in minutes and speeds up healing of the injured, inflamed tissues. One hcmorrhoidal case his- tory after another reported striking improvement." Pain promptly and gently relieved actual reduction or retraction (shrinking) took place. And most improvement was maintained in cases where clinical observations were continued over a period of many months. Furthermore, these tests and observations made on patients with a wide variety of hemnrrhoidal condi- tions. All this was accomplished witli a healing substance fBio- Dyne) which quickly helps heal injured cells and stimulates erou ihtit new tissue. Hio-Dyne is offered in ointment and supposi- tory form tailed Preparation H. In addition to actually shrink- ing hemorrhoids, Preparation H lubricates and makes elimina- tion less painful. It helps prevent infection which is a stated cause of hemorrhoids. just ask your druggist for Preparation II Suppositories or Preparation II Ointment (.with a special Satisfaction or your money refunded. Preparation Rj Industrial production shows drop OTTAWA (CP) The Domin- >n Bureau of Statistics index of ndustrial production slipped own to 169.8 in December from 170.2 in November, based on of mines, quarries and oil wells, 1961 output equaling 100. The bureau reported today there was a drop in the output omputer born during the war PHILADELPHIA (AP) i Venty-five years ago today, 'roject PX, one of the best-kept ecrets of the Second World Var, burst upon an unsuspect- ng world. It would take man to the moon, and beyond. It would spur undreamed-of achieve- nents in every field of human endeavor. It also would reduce many as- yects of human life to a num- wr, a cold flock of digits that ranslated into nothing more ban holes in a piece of paper. It was the birth of the modern electronic computer. 'We were among the very few who knew what it meant, who foresaw its said Dr. John G. Brainerd, pro- 'essor of engineering at the Uni- versity of Pennsylvania. Smaller, more complex elec- ;ronic digital computers would follow, but in the beginning was ENIAC, the Electronic Numeri- cal Integrator and Computer By modern standards it was a monster, weighing 30 tons anr occupying more than square feet of floor space. BORN OF WAR Like the atom bomb, the elec- tronic computer was born out of necessity intensified by the pressures of war. By 1942, Brainerd and Penn's Moore School of Engineering staff were at work on several war department projects, in- cluding one for the ballistics re- search laboratory at the Aber- deen proving grounds to com- pute rocket and missile trajectn- ries. The work was slow and bog- ging down under the sheer vol- ume of mathematical computa- ,ions. A single table required a calculator's full tune for more than a month. ENIAC would do the same job in less than half an hour. The major work on the ma- chine was done by Dr. John W. Mauchly, who determined what kind of problems the machine should be able to solve, and J. Prosper Eckert, who figured out how to build a machine to per- form the functions that Mauchls prescribed. In the spring of 1943 a S486.000 contract was awarded the uni versity for work on the com- puter. ''Considering the magnitude of the result, it was one of the cheapest research and develop- ment projects the government ever invested Brainerd said. ;d in rcn-durab'e goods manu- acturing. Durable goods manu- 'acturing rose marginally, and there was a boost in electric power, gas and water output. Together these components of the industrial production index make up almost one third of the economic trend because the in- dustries covered are the most quickly affected by boom or re- cession. The over-all was at a peak 175.1 in February last year, and hovered between 170.0 and 172.4 through the spring and summer, dropping to its low point of 168.6 in October. In per- centage terms, the December index was three below last Feb- ruary's peak. The index is seasonally ad- justed in order to show the un- derlying trend of the economy, unaffected by the normal winter slow-down. The December index showed the first gain since last June in the non-durable goods manufac- turing sector, rising to 179.6 from 178.3 in November. Last February it was 192.9. The big December gains were in the transportation equipment and electrical products industries. In non-durable goods, there was a 6.7-uer-cerit drop in the output of the rubber industry in December.
