Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, January 6, 1971 TRAINING FOR THE MOON - Astronaut Alan B. Shepard, Jr., as he practised landing on the moon in the Lunar Landing trainer at Ellington Air Force Base at Houston. At left front view as he reached 300 feet and top as he landed the trainer at far end of runway. Shepard and Astronaut Edgar Dean Mitchell are scheduled for the next moon walk while the third member of the crew, Stuart Allen Roosa orbits the moon in the command ship. The Apollo 14 moon trip is scheduled for blast off on Janua/y 31. Freight, passenger service Railways making comeback around world LONDON (AP) - The Iron Horse is making a remarkable comeback in freight and passenger traffic around the world, says Jane's annual publication World Railways. Compilers of the 700-page book claim the railways now can be called a growth industry. Jane's said railway networks in most countries have fought back from the financial slough caused by air and highway competition and now are on the threshold of an era of success if potential is fully utilized. One of the big reasons involves that modern word cybernetics-the knowledge, which governs computers, thermostats and the like. Railways have adopted cybernetics to build bigger, faster trains, high-speed loading and unloading of freight and tight links with ocean-going carriers at docksides. Through cybernetics, the railways are thrusting toward trains that would travel from 200 to 250 miles an hour. The Japanese have started on such a project and the British government has ordered a study of two possible 250-mile-an-hour hover train routes. Jane's observed: "The pattern of the 1970s Is taking shape: "1-A system of high speed routes connecting major areas with fewer (intermediate passenger and freight stations. "2-F r e i g h t terminals and transfer points for block trains of containers, highway trailers and wagon-load freight. "3-Large marshalling yards, fully automated to increase capacity and speed. "4-New and rebuilt passen- ger stations with improved facilities and amenities for passengers. "5-Electrification of heavy traffic lines, diesel traction for the remainder of the system with gas turbine propulsion for very high speed multiple-unit passenger trains. "6-T rack construction to Amphetamine compound withdrawn LONDON (Reuter) - A major British drug company, Nicholas Laboratories, is to stop using amphetamines in pep pills. The company plans to withdraw its entire current stock from the market and destroy it. Steward Kipling, managing director of Nicholas Laboratories, said Monday his company is talcing this action because there is a growing weight of evidence that amphetamines have undesirable social side-effects. Within recent years doctors have argued that amphetamines -a. stimulant widely used to treat obesity and depression-create a dangerous psychological dependence and should be banned. Some practitioners currently operate a voluntary restriction. In 1969, 3.3 million prescriptions for amphetamine and related compounds were written by British doctors. This, according to conservative estimates, represents some 100 million pills. Those in the medical profession who oppose banning the drug say it is therapeutically useful and it is unfair to deprive patients because some persons misuse it. very fine vertical and lateral �tolerances to sustain the future high speeds- "7-More powerful motive power units inside existing axle loading limits and new designs of passenger and freight cars." Jane's takes the view that many countries now are realizing the essential need of railway traffic since air and highway travel has nearly reached its limits-Air and highway firms have conducted highly effective publicity campaigns and acquired a sort of glamor, Jane's noted, and now the railways are slowly waking to this approach in behalf of their own image. Rail movement now has become the No. 1 salvation for the world's big cities, the authors noted. In another 20 years, said Jane's, population of cities will be 80 per cent greater than today, which dictates high speed rail as the primary solution for the harassed computer. Soccer team co-operates in arthritis project study LONDON (CP) - Verna Wright is a follower of soccer and a professor of rheumatology. The combination may hold some hope for arthritis victims. Leeds United soccer team of the English League is co-operating with him in a two-year project of Leeds University to study the effect of limb strain on the lubrication of the joints. Lack of this lubrication causes agonizing and crippling arthritis. After games, the players undergo tests to measure tht pressure put on leg joints and the amount of lubricating "synovial fluid" used. A team of scientists headed by the 41-y e a r -o 1 d Wright, helped by a grant from the Arthritis and Rheumatism Council, hopes to develop "bio-engi- Boyle's Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - Things a columnist might never know if he didn't cpen his mail: Three Yale astronomers predict the earth will probably last for another billion years. Most sardines are caught in the dark of the moon. This is why: The sea contains organisms which glow when agitated. Fishermen can most easily locate schools of sardines when their passage stirs these organisms to luminesc- Crucifixion evidence discovered JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli scholars have discovered the bones of a man crucified about 2,000 years ago, and claimed it was the first time hard evidence of a crucifixion has been found. A 12-inch iron nail was found jammed into the ankle of the victim, said anthropologist Nico Haas. Paleographer Yoscf Naveh said the name Yehochanan was found on the victim's stone ossuary, or coffin, indicating he was Jewish. Four other ossuaries were found with that of Yohochanan in a cave in northeast Jerusalem, but no cause of death could be established for these others. . "It appeared to he a family tomb," said Dr. Navah. "The word shalom was inscribed on some of the ossuaries." Shalom, the Hebrew word for peace, is used as a greeting and as a farewell. The nail remained in I h c ankle of Yehochanan it was sharply benl, making it irremovable, said Dr. Haas. He added that families of crucified persons invariably extracted the nails after the victim died. No evidence was found that could indicate why the Romans -then occupiers of the Holy Land-crucified Yehochanan. The ossuaries wore disruv-' e"ed 2'�-� years ago, but study of the bones was completed only recently, said Dr. Haas, j ence during periods when the moon is dark. In Russia, now suffering a labor shortage, you're never too old to work. One of the first to respond to a government appeal for retirees to return to the labor market was a man in Uzbekistan who claimed to be 117 years old. He was given a job as a traffic policeman. It takes a long time to pay off a battlefield. No Civil War veterans are left on U.S. federal pension rolls, but at last count the government was still paying money out to 3.900 widows and 650 dependent children left in the wake of that long ago conflict. Imported: Most of Hawaii's familiar symbols came from other lands. Examples cited by the National Geographic Society: The pineapple came from the Caribbean, the uke-lele from Portugal, the grass skirt from Samoa. Isn't it a shame? It takes some 2,000 bolts to hold a car toeether and only one nut to tear it apart. AUTHOR A THIEF Literary humor: Author II. G. Wells once donned another man's hat by mistake, liked its fit so well he kept it, and left this note behind for the ownci: "I stole your hat. I like your hat; I shall keep your hat. Whenever I look inside it, I shall think of you. I take off your hat to you." How's that again? There is some fear that most city dwellers will be totally deaf by the year 2000 if urban noise levels continue to rise at the present rate. In the last 10 years they have doubled, says I h e Northwestern National Life Insurance Co. .Some fling: Boomerang throwing is becoming a booming sport in Australia and Canada. Using a non-returnable curved flying stick, Australian aborigines have been known to bring down a kangaroo at 200 yards. Folklore: It is hicky to own a white rooster.

"The amazing thing is not that the human joint goes wrong occasionally but how often it sees its way through a long life of stress and strain without giving trouble," Wright wrote in the council's magazine. FLUID GETS STICKY In a telephone interview from Leeds, he explained that deterioration of joints such as knees and elbows is caused by the synovial fluid becoming sticky. If more were known about synovial fluid, he added, "it might be possible to reduce the incidence of this crippling condition." Wright and his team have been working more than six months. Though they hav� not yet determined the cause of synovial thickening, he said that "regardless of the mechanism that has brought about the wear in a bearing, its life will be prolonged if lubrication is improved." Premature joint deterioration is common among active persons who impose heavy strain on their limbs, which is why the 40 Leeds players have been called on for the experiment. Wright stressed that the experiment is still in "the fundamental stages." "We have not been injecting lubricants into Leeds United players to prevent future decay because we have no definite indication as to their effect at the moment." However, he said things might be "pretty well tied up" at the end of the project. Festival promoter charged CALGARY (CP) - A charge under the Public Contributions Act has been laid against James Kelly of Calgary, promoter of the Children's Christmas Festival about two weeks ago. A complaint was lodged by Harold St arks, president of the Calgary Charities Commission, who took exception to the method used to promote the festival. About 5,000 tickets were sold to businessmen who then gave the tickets to charities helping poor and orphaned children. The show was held in a room w h i c li could accommodate about 600 people and was to be rerun until everyone who came had seen it. Under the Contributions Act, it is an offence to sell goods or services with the implication : that proceeds would benefit i charity.
