(CP) - A coroner’s    inquest investigating 22 deaths over a five-month period at Sudbury General Hospital heard evidence Tuesday that an apparent medical'gas line problem might have extended beyond the area on which the inquest has focused. Eric Heathcote of Toronto, an engineering consultant retained in the investigation, testified that on inspectiwis of the hospital late last year—after the deaths—he had seen some pipintt connections in a then unused area “which might have caused me some concern.” Mr. Heathcote described the piping as “cross-overs” at a point where gas Ihies went from a new part of the hospital to one that was being renovated. Ross Bennett, Ontario deputy supervising coroner who is presiding at the inquest, had used the term “cross-over” Monday to describe a suspected cause of an apparent malfunction of oxygen and anesthetic nitrous oxide lines preceding Uie death of Catharine Dominic, 6, in the hospital’s new f6-million wing last Sept. 7. Evidence at Monday’s ^n-ing session had been confined largely to details of the first-floor area where the girl was treated for a fracture, and Mr. Heathcote’s testunony dealing with the upper floors of the six-storey addition drew an outburst from Sudbury lawyer Elmer Sopha, representing the Dominica and four other families. WANTS INFORMATION He accused Crown Attorney John Takach of Sudbury of conducting a “clandestine investigation" and denying other lawyers information they need for crossexamination. He was joined by R. P. Ann-strong, lawyer for Canadian Liquid Air. Ltd., one of the subcontractors, who argued that Mr. Takach had brought in "a kind of veiled suspicion that there may be other problem areas.” Mr. Armstrong complained that on a tour of the hospital earlier Tuesday the jury and lawyers bad not been shown the upper floors and had been led to believe the only “area of concern” was in the ceiling atwve l^e nurses’ station on the main floor, where the pipes led down to where the girl was treated. Coroner Bennett said Mr. Takach had “gone beyond his own boundary” for this stage of the inquest and said Mr. Heathcote might be examined in detail later in the inquiry expected to last three we^. Transit strike jeopardizes Grade 10 student’s school year EDMONTON (CP) -Glenda McElroy, 16, may ■have to repeat Grade 10 because she's missed classes since the strike of ci^ transit workers began 49 days ago. However, Robert Smilanich, assistant superintendent of administrative services lor the public school board, said in an interview that Glenda’s school year could still be saved “if the girl can demonstrate she was able to keep up with her classes." A meeting between board officials and Glenda’s parents would probably resolve the problem, he said. Glenda, who depended on the Edmonton Transit System for transportation to school 10 miles from her city home, received a school notice this week saying she would receive a failing mark and no credits for the semester ending in February. Her father, a mason, was laid off his job until cold weather subsided and says he “could not possibly afford to run my car 20 miles twice a day to bring Glenda to school.” Her mother refuses to let her hitch-hike: “There is already enough rape in the city without adding to it by sending my girls out to hitchhike.” Mrs. McElroy said that before the strike began, Glenda attended school regularly and planned to become a veterinarian. “Now I’m really worried,” she said. "You know what kids are like. They fail one «-ade and say to heck with It. This could easily upset all the plans for her future.” When the family moved to their present home, Glenda’s parents decided to let the girl remain in her old school, resulting in the 10-mile distance “We felt that she was doing so well at that school,” said Mrs. McElroy. “She liked the system and had all her friends there," Glenda’s mother said she telephoned neighbors and school officials to try to find a ride for the girl, but was unsuccessful. Mrs. McElroy then tried to transfer Glenda but was told it was too late in the semester. “If we kept our children out of school, we could get penalized or even end up with a jail sentence,” she said. But when it’s the city and union involved, there’s nothing anybody can do about it.” Instructoras wage appeal supported RED DEER (CP) - The appellate division of the Supreme Court of Alberta has upheld an appeal by two former Red Deer College instructors concerning salary paid when they were dismissed. Marion Michaels and William Finn were appealing a decision by Mr. Justice J. V. H Milvain of the Alberta Supreme Court that granted Trade surplus have 10 per cent or more of a petroleum distillate also need an extra safety feature — a flow-c(Mitrol device under tbe chlld-reslstant cap. This means that even if a youngster manages to wrestle off the child-proof cap, a violent shaking of the container would stul be necessary to get the fluid out. For adulte with no children, manufacturers will be allowed' to market one size of their product with a conventlmial cap, provided tbe container Is clearly labelled “this package is for households without children.” Glass industry spokesmen have praised new regulatims governing the use of safety glass in tbe home. Tempered and laminated glass is safer and more expensive. A study by the National Research Council esUmated about 10,000 injuries result each year from accidents Involving broken building glass in the home. Children are usually the victims. Safety glass is now mandatory for new patio, stortn and other glass doors in the home as well as tub shower enclosures. The first of two sets of regulations governing tbe design of children’s cribs comes into effect this week. Slats or rails on cribs or cradles sold after Jan. 1 can be no more than 3^ inches apart, preventing even tte smallest child from forcing its head tbrou^ tbe bars. More regulations goveniii^ cribs come into effect May 1. They will require a diild-proof lock on drop sides, specify the quality of wood used and require cribs to pass vibration tests to prove they can endure tbe constant bouncing of a child.    , On special regulations governing testing standards for hockey b^ets, the consumer affairs department recommends that parents look for the Canadian Standards Association symbol as an indication the hockey heUnet complies with new regulations. Under regulations which will take effect May 1, manufacturers and distributors of barbecue charcoal will have to print a warning on all charcoal bags warning the public of the danger of deadly carbon monoxide poisoning when charcoal is burned in an unventilated enclosed area. More smoke weed despite campaign ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) - The head of the American Cancer Society says 60,000 men and 15,000 women will die in the United States this year from lung cancer. Dr. Justin Stein makes the prediction in a speech today at the society’s 1974 national volunteers meeting. Today is the lOth anniversary of a report on smoking and health by the United States surgeon-general ’s office. Stein said that in the last two years there has been “a small but noticeable increase in per capita cigarette consumption.” “This reflects an increase of smoking among women and teen-age girls, with a corresponding increase of lung cancer among women.” Officials of the Canadian Cancer Society had earlier reported a similar trend among Canadian women and girls. The public health service estimates that 52 million Americans now smoke cigarettes, 45 million of them adults, compared with 48 million a decade ago. The 1964 report and six succeeding volumes produced evidence that cigarette smok-mg contributes to cancer, coronary heart disease and respiratory ailments such as emphysema. Developments since then: — Twenty million Americans have given up cigarettes, the U.S. public health service estimates. —Average cigarette tar and nicotine content has dropped 43 per cent. —Smokers and nonsmokers are segregated on commercial planes and Amtrak trains. —Radio and television commercials for cigarettes and little cigars were outlawed. —Public health warnings appeared on cigarette packages and in newspaper and magazine cigarette ads.

Abbott, 67, has resigned after 15 years as dean of Westminster Abbey where British monarchs have been crowned for almost 1,000 years. them five months salary following their dismissal by the college in July, 1972. The appellate division ruled that they should each receive the equivalent of their annual salary as instructor $11,995 for Mrs. Michaels and fl5,539 for Mr Finn — less any amount the college has already paid them. They each received one months salary in lieu of notice when they were dismissed.

JOHN GERLA City Clerk The $1.1-billion trade surplus in the first 10 months of 1973 was already exceeding the total surplus of 1972, although fourth-quarter exports and imports in Canada had not been calculated. But the future is murky and inflation m Canada could price some industries out of competition in foreign markets.
