Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, February T6, 1973 Analysis team report Lunar soil billions of vears old STONY BROOK, N.Y. (AP), - The orange soil found on the moon by the Apollo 17 astronauts is billions of years older than first believed, scientists reported today. A lunar analysis team at the State University of New York at Stony Brook has set the age of the orange soil at 3.71 billion years. Astronaut-geologist Harrison H. Schmidt told a news confer- Couvictecl murderer to be .interviewed EDMONTON (CP) - Attorney-general Merv Leitch has asked Edmonton police to interview Keith Latta, a former law professor now serving a life sentence in Drumheller penitentiary for non-capital murder. Latta, a professor at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., was convicted of the murder of Bob Neville, a travel agent and school trustee found shot to death in his Edmonton office June 13, 1971. Mr. Leitcl) says he ordered the interview following a "request" from the Latta family. Latta has exhausted all avenues of appeal against his conviction, including the Supreme Court of Canada. City police closed their file on case last month after studying and rejecting claims' that Mr. Neville had been shot by a paid assassin. THE UNIVERSITY Of GA1CARY e.ncc; last .Tan. 5 he thought the orange soil was as young as 10 million years old. The soil discovery "was described as perhaps the roost important to come out of the last moon mission. If the orange soil were only 10 million years old it would have indicated there was volcanic activity on the moon in what in geologic terms is a fairly recent age. Dating of the soil sample by the Stony Brook team suggests the moon has been geologically dead for xc;^.'\ longer. "It can now be reasonably stated that volcanism on the moon was a phenomena which ended about three billion years ago," said Dr. Oliver Schaeffer, the. head of the scientific team. Astronauts Schmidt and Eugene A. Cernan discovered the orange soil during the second of three, seven-hour excursions on the lunar surface in the moon's Valley cf Taurus-Littrow, the Apollo 17 landing site. The astronauts collected 249 pounds of rocks on the mission, which ended last Dec. 19. ONE OF men POINTS The discovery of the orange soil was one of the high points of the last planned mission in the Apollo program. A principal goal of the moon mission was to answer man's questions about the start and finish of lunar evolution. The 3.71-biUion-yeav age of the orange soil, the scientists said, is older than samples from the lunar soils brought back by the Apollo 12 and 15 astronauts. The Apollo 15 samples were dated at about 3.25 to 3.40 bil- lion years. The oldest lunar sample so far, the Stony Brook scientist said, was returned from the Apollo 16 mission and dated at 4.24 billion years. A sample of the orange soil was exposed to radiation for 10 hours at the nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory in the first stage of the dating process. The radiation process converts potassium 39, an isotope present in the sample, to the rare gas Argon 39. The highly radio- then a v. t i v e sample was analysed at Stony Brook. Measurements of the Argon 39 and Argon 40, produced naturally over billions of years, resulted in the 3.71 billion-year fixture, which the scientists said is accurate to within plus or minus 60 million years. Dr. Liaquat Husain, a senior researcher, worked with Schaeffer in the analysis, along -with technical assistants Gerald Barber and Teodore Ludkewycz. Relatives favorite murder victims OTTAWA (CP) - The favor-; ing, six drowning, 10 arson, 29 ite murder weapon in Canada is ! the result of other means of a gun. The favorite victim is a relative. Surprisingly few Canadian murders are committed as a part of another criminal activity. In fact there sometimes are more arguments settled with a gun than criminal acts completed. These are shown iu some of a raft of statistics on .murder released by Statistics Canada over the years. The figures show that of the 425 murders reported by police in 1971, the last complete year available, 1930 were the result of shooting. Eighty-two were the result of beating, 67 the result of stabbing, 29 strangling, six suffocat- Blabbermouths are warned about espionage threat MOSCOW f AP) - The Soviet military command is furious. Too many soldiers get drunk, blabber away secrets, send their girl-friends snapshots of hush-hush installations and generally make life easier for "enemy" intelligence agents.

The nation's "economic, political and military might" is threatened by the enemy's switch from the threat of arms to espionage, the newspaper said. "Secrets are not just ket>t in safes," Red Star said. "There are numerous examples of gullibility and negligence when it to our military secrets." Trooper V. Nikulsky, for example, wanted to impress h^. girl-friend so he enclosed an official document in a love letter. Other soldiers sent home pictures of themselves, with secret installations in the background. "Completely intolerable," Reel Star said. Of the hard drinkers in the armed forces and soldiers who let. secrets slip into their telephone conversations and radio reports, Red Star said: "Such dangerous leaks of important information to enemy agents create a great threat due to the latest wire-tapping and radio interception techniques." killing and three the result of unknown causes. The statistics show that those proportions hold about true for the years dating back to 1967. The exception was 1970 when 40 persons died in a deliberately set fire in Quebec. KILLED RELATIVES Of those 425 murders in 1971, a total of 150 were classified as domestic. That is, the victims were members of the killer's immediate family or related in some other way or were partners in a common-law relation ship. A total of 169 were classified as "others." That lakes in a va riety of killings including those following excessive drinking-27 in 1971-and those immediately following an argument-49. Other "others" could be gangland killings-five-and cases of jealousy. The statistics bureau gives these percentages for the years 1967 to 1971: Domestic murders: 43.6 per cent of a total of 282 murders in 1967; 37.6 per cent of 315 in 1968; 1969; 1970; 1971. 37.6 per cent of 346 in 32.2 per cent of 432 in 35.3 per cent of 425 in Train scrapped LONDON (AP) - Britain's experimental hovertrain, designed to run on an elevated track at speeds up to 300 miles an hour, is being scrapped, Aerospace Minister Michael He-seltine anounced here.

In the period 1961-1971 there were 2,778 miurder incidents reported involving 3,099 victims. Of these, 31*3 were committed during an act of robbery, 107 during a sexual assault or rape 10 during escapes from institutions, and 39 during commission of some other criminal act.

At the same time recent murders of Toronto policemen have spurred renewed talk of gun control lews. Medical report challenged LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) -Dairy industry officials challenge claims by the American Medical Association (AMA) that coronary heart disease is related to cholesterol levels. It says the AMA statement was based on "poor data." Dr. Laurence Hursh, director of health services at the University of Illinois, told the 58th annual meeting of the National Dairy Council here that a study by the Massachusetts Institute of Tectmology (MIT) concluded "just the opposite." The MIT research, he said, was conducted on persons aged 52 to 60 and showed "women with a cholesterol level of 279 have a much lower amount of heart disease than those with levels less than 180." The study showed the same for men, he added. He said the AMA last December that coronary heart disease is correlated with the level of cholesterol was based on "poor data." Lorenzo N. lloopes, chairman of (he dairy council, said numerous studies oyer the years "have failed to relate specific dietary componenst or foods to the subsequent development  of heart disease." "In fact," he added, "there Is really no scientific data that lowering cholesterol in the blood will reduce deaths from coronary heart disease and improve overall life spans.' , BARGAINS TO CART AWAY!
